Best part of the hotel is the beach and that the resort is not too big. This resort is packed full of kids - do not recommend this for couples. Food was just ok - entertainment was lacking.

The landscape is excellent. Bed is comfortable. I was very disappointed that there are no internet in the rooms. I couldn't call no one from my room because the room phone didn't work.

This was our second time visiting Jewel Runaway bay with our two boys (9 and 6). While the rooms and WiFi could absolutely use some updates, the property, food and staff are absolutely amazing. This is definitely a family resort and I'm not quite sure why couples in their 20's would pick this resort with all of the other adult only options. The kids love it and we leave feeling relaxed and looking forward to our next visit...hopefully next Christmas!

Nice clean Beach, many dining and activity options. Rooms was beautiful but did not have Wi-Fi as advertised. Lots of mosquitoes in my room. Very friendly staff, amazing food! Long shuttle ride from the airport, almost two hours.

The only thing going for this place is the ocean beach area. They took away the vodka and rum out of your room. So if you need a drink you have to walk. We had concierge services which consisted of a phone call a day to see if we needed anything. If we did need something it took them at least four hours to bring it it was ridiculous. If you want room service which was concierge service you have to pay three dollars if a child calls five dollars if an adult calls per item so where is the all inclusive. The food is the same menu every day doesn’t change. No longer give you red stripe in your room either. When We arrived they didn’t have my daughter listed as staying at the Jewel Runaway Bay thank God I had my email I had to forward that to them and then she was able to stay with us. This place was a joke definitely went downhill. You also have a towel card if you don’t return your card you are charged $25 and you have to walk at the end of the beach to get the towels they are not in a very usable location. Very disappointing for what we paid. I read all the reviews about this place and thought for sure they were crazy there was no way they were talking about the place that I had been to two years ago well they were definitely right the reviews are right on about this place

The property is well maintained and well run. Everyone we interacted with was friendly and accommodating. You cannot best the beach. The beach is large with plenty of room to accommodate the guests. The water is a myriad of blues and greens and calm so everyone can safely enjoy the water. They’d added a water park since our last visit and it was incredible. So well maintained, clean and relaxing. A great place for a family vacation. Special shout out to Karlene who was outstanding in helping to ensure that our vacation was everything we wanted it to be.
