Guests who want to sample authentic Jamaican cuisine will surely enjoy Puerto Seco, where the beachfront is sprinkled with street vendors selling street foods like jerk chicken or mouthwatering coco bread

great vacation

Very friendly, helpful staff, good food. The childcare services were excellent, available until 9pm. The hotel itself ia a little dated but it's been renovated so its quite comfy. Its one of the few boutique hotels around and my 6 year old and I loved it.The beach was pretty good. If I could add anything it would be a jerk spot on the beach.

Quick getaway for three nights

Everything about the Jewel Runaway Bay was way beyond our expectations. We enjoyed the food very much and the staff was great. Our room, the resort grounds, the beach, and the pools were very clean. I would definitely stay here again to do some other excursions and maybe get in some golf and tennis. They offer three or four a daily snorkel trips from there beach for $15pp, and there is snorkeling from the beach as well. They are constructing a water park next to the property that should be complete in early 2015. transportation to and from the hotel from MBJ was 1 hr 15 min.

Very Good Value

This was our first visit to Jamaica. The resort was what we call "people friendly". To fault, the staff were helpful, friendly and made sure they asked if we got what we needed. The food was abundant and varied but we had no significant dietary restrictions so maybe we did not look hard enough. There is a desk in the hotel to book excursion that too was helpful. The only kink if any was on our travels with the drivers organized by the desk. We forgot a purse getting off the tour car and it was gone despite our immediate call. Not the resort's problem. I would say hang on to your bags if your driver says he is the "fresh prince of Jamaica" That was what he called himself:)

Great Family Vacation

My family and I stayed here (myself, husband and 2 year old daughter) to celebrate my husband's birthday. It is a great hotel for families. It was not too crowded and did not have that "spring break" feel to it. There was a kids club for my daughter and a big pool that was only 2 feet deep that she could play in. The center of the pool had a fountain that the kids loves playing in. The beach was beautiful and the drinks and food was great. Definitely do the dinner under the stars and try the platinum restaurant. The pizzeria is also excellent!

Great family getaway

This was our first time visiting Jamaica. We are a family of four. Our 2 sons are 15 and 5. We stayed 6 nights and we all had a blast! Great food and excellent service. The kids camps are amazing and the people running them are extremely nice and trustworthy! The hotel is about 1 hour and 20 min bus/car ride from the airport, but it was worth it! Runaway bay is a great location very close to ocho rios (about 20 min drive). The hotel provides free bus transportation from and to the airport. Bring lots of change for tips!

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

The daily trips/excursions are pretty pricey, so be prepared to pay or just stick to the included activities which are included (glass bottom boat ride, sailing, snorkeling, kayaking)
