While the majority of reviews for this resort are good, we do detect some underlying remarks about the general condition of the site being tired and needing renovation in places and occasional non professional front staff. Though this is common across many establishments in countries like Jamaica.
The rooms are excellent, clean and very spacious with a good choice. We see very little complaints about the food either.
The beach is nice but rather small and no access to further along the beach.
Overall, this seems a nice place for an all inclusive adult only holiday and based upon average reviewers we would rate it as a 3.5 star resort.
How to get a really fantastic deal at this Jewel Resort. Keeping watching the site for special offers. By booking in advance on a special offer you could save enormously. For example, opposed to a normal $400 pn, at the moment they are offering the same for $125!!! If you book for next year.
Note: Not for smokers: the whole hotel and grounds are a strict non smoking zone, there are no smoking areas provided anywhere, so if you are a smoker, this place is NOT for you. And don't forget its adults only.
