We traveled here for a spring break with seven other families, and we had such a wonderful time. We liked that the resort is smaller than others where we have stayed. It never felt crowded, even though the resort was at capacity. The boys loved the "tween/teen" center and Tinkerbell was wonderful with them, and they enjoyed that they could...

After a fabulous vacation at the Jewel last year (March 2016), we couldn't wait to go back! Another amazing time was had by all four of us. The girls cried when they had to leave their friends Tinkerbell and Rhi Rhi behind....till the next time. Aside from the awesome food, beach and the waterpark, the staff is really what makes...

Traveling teens were expecting more to do especially being able to swim in the pools. The pools were closed by 6pm and there were not a lot of activities for teens to do. Teens didn't feel like they had any freedom always coming to a parent to get them to sign out snorkeling gear, this should not be an issue...

Seriously? We don't close our pools, you can swim throughout the night. Sunday is a huge teen party, every night capture the flag on the beach, teens disco, sushi making, party at red ruby ranch at night with bon fire and zombie laser tag, teen coordinators. The only reason why have the parents sign them out is because the teens...

We booked a family trip (2 families/11 people - 4 adults, 2 18 yr olds, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10). The Jewel resort exceeded everyone's expectations. I can not express how awesome the staff was to everyone in our party. They addressed us by name, made the kids feel so special & definitely treated us like they valued our business....

What a great week! Went to spend spring break in Jamaica with my family. Never had to leave the resort. The food - delicious! The activities - fun and enough for all ages! Staff - super friendly and helpful! Accommodations - clean! The resort was full with families (anywhere from toddlers to teens) enjoying a week at an all-inclusive resort....

I went with my wife and two children (5 and 8). We had a nice time at the resort, and I will spell out my pro's and con's below. I must add, that while there are a few shortcomings, the staff at this resort more than make up for them. The lifeguards, in short, are awesome. Peter, and Samantha in...
