Colonial decor and a 4-poster king bed topped with hand carved pineapples - a Caribbean symbol of welcome - greet you at the Jewel Dunn's River Beach Hotel in Jamaica. Most accommodations come with a view, either out towards the Ochos Rios peaks or straight across the crystal-blue waters. Butler suites are offered for indulgent walk-in closets, large bathtubs, his and hers robes, and personalized room service. Casual bites are served up in three cafes, including the Coral Cafe, which serves buffet breakfasts and lunches, and where ladies can wear their favorite cocktail dresses for formal evening dining. Jewel Dunn's vast swimming pools, water sports, and a pitch and putt golf course provide plenty of all-inclusive entertainment.

Neighborhood
Located just to the west of the busy Ochos Rios, the hotel is surrounded by serene beauty just a short distance from the livelier island attractions. As the name suggests, the resort is very close to the world-famous Dunn's River Falls, where guests can climb the rocks and walk among wonderfully cool, gushing waters. Drive five minutes to Dolphin Cove to swim with these bright and friendly mammals, or explore the Seville Great House, a classic colonial English-style property dating back to the 17th century, now part of the Jamaican National Heritage Trust.

Amazing resort

This resort was truly a jewel! There were so many good things about this resort! I have done a lot of traveling and have never been at a resort where the staff is ALWAYS friendly and they will do anything to accommodate you. All of the bars are great and the drink specials are delicious. They will bring you drinks on the beach-Basil and Gairy are great bartenders and sweet people! Brighton is the guy you want to see for hobies and kyack rentals which is all included in the hotel. The resturants are all very good. You can get wood grilled pizzas all day long! The beach resturant is open from 11am to 7am for anyone that stays out late. The other formal resturants are delicious-and you don't have to make reservations which is so nice! The only Resturant you have to make a reservation for is the hibachi Resturant. Go to the blue hole!!! It is so beautiful. Although the hotel does not reccomend it because it's not promoted by the tours. Get a cab and go to the blue hole-1000 times better than Dunn River Falls! We took a cab and was 60 to the hole and then 10 each. You just pay the locals and they take you to the cliff jumps, rope swings, and crystal clear waters! We went with Troy and Hector and they were fun and made the experience great! I really can't say enough about the Jewel. It is a great resort and truly the best staff in Jamaica!!!

First Time Travelers

Except for delayed checkin due to rooms not being ready, this resort was top notch. One of the best resorts we've visited. Good fun staff, nice beach, great pools, good food. Since we took new travelers, this was the perfect introduction to all inclusive vacations. Everyone in our group had a great time and are looking forward to future travels.

If faced with late registration, grab your bathing suits and enjoy the facility. Don't let unexpected inconveniences spoil your good vacation. Every minute of vacation is precious, don't was a moment of it being angry or upset.

Ladies Trip

We booked this resort because of it's location and the fact that there were no children at this location. Nothing against the little ones but it's nice to enjoy peace an quite once in a while. Be warned though- most of the people there are couples, but I think that's true for most Jamaican getaways. The location was very nice, our hotel room looked over the mountains and the beach was very close. The staff definitely made this trip incredible. Everyone was very friendly, accommodating and the entertainment staff made sure everyone was having a good time even when the weather wasn't cooperating.

BARTER BARTER BARTER. Never accept first prices offered for anything. They expect you to barter with them and if you accept their first price, you'll end up paying a lot more than you should. Practice your negotiating skills!
