The premier all-inclusive adults-only Jewel Dunn's River Beach Resort & Spa is located just 90 minutes from Montego Bay's Sangster International Airport and just moments from the spectacular Dunn's River Falls, one of Jamaica's must-see attractions. The resort is located less than 2.5 miles from bustling Ocho Rios and set in lush gardens and beachfront; play under the pool falls or on the 9-hole pitch and putt golf course, relax in the garden hammocks or in our full-service Radiant Spa. And where else is there a concierge serving drinks in the pool?

Complimentary airport transfers to and from the hotel are included in the room rate.

The 250-sumptuous guest rooms and butler-service suites were designed to appeal to every taste and attitude. The 2-story Emerald Lanai guest rooms are set in a verdant garden; Sapphire guest rooms overlook the majestic mountains or sparkling Caribbean Sea; Diamond guest rooms offer lush mountain or ocean views up to Concierge service or over-the-top one-bedroom butler-service suites, all with custom decor and 4-poster mahogany king bed.

There are six superb dining options at The Jewel Dunn's River ranging from the sophisticated white-glove service Platinum to the most casual Aquamarina Beach Bar & Grill, where even shoes are optional. Plus, a selection of six bars include two where you can remain within the pool while you sip cocktails. At night the Emerald Tree Lounge, where evenings sparkle, is a great place to gather and Bling! our nightclub keeps the party going well after the sun sets.

Nice vacation

The hotel was very clean and the trip was very enjoyable. Only negative was the wifi connectivity which was difficult from the room.

First time in Jamaica

We had an early flight so we arrived at the hotel about 3 hours prior to check in. We were greeted with a cocktail and cold towels! The hotel had WiFi that worked in my room as well Wich was a plus. Bret-Lee accommodated my request for a ocean view room, with no problem mon! We actually had a partial view of the ocean and could also see the pool and could watch activities from our balcony! The food was amazing! The hotel was close to a lot of activities. We will be back for sure mon.

Great resort!

We really enjoyed our stay. The resort upgraded us from an ocean view to an ocean front suite. The staff was friendly and helpful. We definitely plan to go back!

Best vacation so far

This hotel blew away our expectations. The staff was super friendly and always smiling, the food was really good and the snorkeling adventure with Kim was amazing. We always looked forward to our main bartender Cornell who continuously had drinks and jokes flowing. Must must must go to the blue hole. Ask for Rusty he will take you to and from along with stopping at bars and shopping. Definitely going to be a hard vacation to beat!

Perfect Honeymoon Destination

Overall this is a great all-inclusive, adults only resort. It is big, and there was always plenty of space to grab a chair and get some sun (at least when we went in July). The beach itself is not that big, but combined with the rest of the resort worked just fine. There are two large pools with swim up bars, and the restaurants are of top caliber, providing a good combination of casual and formal dining (don't forget dress clothes for one of the restaurants!). Staff is also very friendly and fun to talk to and joke with. One of the few downsides is that there is no where to walk to outside of the resort, so you must schedule a tour or cab to go anywhere (probably don't want to go anywhere that is not a tourist attraction anyway). Overall, this was a wonderful trip and I'd recommend to any couple looking for a romantic getaway.

Great Couple Trip

Hotel is beautiful. Our room 3218, in the Diamond building had the best view I could want (with two balconies). The staff was very friendly and the trip was perfect for our weekend getaway from the kids. The hotel pool was great, but it was showing a little bit of wear with several water-level tiles needing replaced. However, this was easy to overlook with the beauty and ambiance for the the weekend. I recommend attending their Friday night dinner on the pier-- very nice. We had a couples' dinner on the beach which I'd also do again. For our final night, we had dinner on our beautiful balcony.

Fun Time Had By All

This was a first class hotel with fantastic amenities, great staff, good food and wonderful private beach. Entertainment was top notch. Only had one down side to the entire trip. Had to wait 9 hours to get our rooms. (3 couples, 3 rooms) We were able to use facilities, but we were tired, sweaty and really needed to get into our room and unpack. Still not sure what the problem was but we finally had to camp out in the lobby and talk with couple of mgrs to get checked in.
