Jewel Paradise Cove

Ocho Rios, Jamaica

Virgin rating

The hotel

If its peace and serenity you want, you’ve come to the right place! Tucked away in a secluded location, the Jewel Paradise Cove is nothing short of idyllic. Strictly for adults only, it’s all inclusive too, not just meals, snacks and premium drinks but water sports galore as well — it really doesn't get much better than this. When you’re not playing, relax at Radiant Spa, a sanctuary in every sense of the word. The fitness centre is also world-class, making this an ideal choice for those interested in health and beauty. Accommodation is another treat — all rooms are contemporary with state-of-the-art technology. If you’re on honeymoon, upgrade to a Junior Suite — you’ll enjoy personalised butler service if you do, helping to make your stay even more special. When it comes to dining, there are seven dining experiences to choose from, ranging from the laid-back, beach-side Aquamarina to the highly romantic Platinum, where you can feast on Caribbean delights. Enjoy a moonlit stroll after dinner perhaps or head to Bling! — a lively disco bar with tunes to keep you dancing until the early hours.

Great location and smaller size resort. Easily able to get to either Ocho Rios or Falmouth for shopping. Beach is man made and on the smaller size, but the water was beautiful. Lots of resort activities if you choose to participate. The food was lacking, but I certainly did not go hungry.

My wife and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at the resort. Everything in general was excellent. We had a wonderful time. Staff were very friendly and helpful in general. There was the occasional staff person that was not too friendly, but we got the impression that staff work long weeks and have few days off. Some of the highlights of our stay were the candlelight dinner that was totally worth it, not only for the beautiful setting, but also for the food. The steak with the curry-chocolate sauce was amazing! The beach is private and swimming was nice specially because we got to see angel fish and other small fish swimming all around us. The second beach is literally an aquarium. The seaweed wrap at the spa was wonderful and we felt our skin much better after we had it. For Canadians, the Spa might be a bit pricy, so do plan for it. We also did the snorkelling trip (it's an extra cost but not too expensive. $40 per person and you get some drinks too) and we enjoyed it a lot. Really got to see different types of fish, urchins, etc. The pizza bar was also very nice. We love trying different foods, so we loved the Jamaican ackee fish and festivals for breakfast. Our daily treat was the coffee shop in the afternoons. One of the best kept secrets is the nature walk tour. Donovan, who takes care of the gardens, is a wonderful person and a fountain of knowledge and he took us through all the plants and fruits that are planted in the property. This was an amazing tour right there in the resort. The night show with the steel drums band was also something we enjoyed a lot. If you are looking for a resort without kids, to have a great time this is definitely a place to stay. The two reasons why we don't give a 5 star to this resort is because there is basically no wi-fi in the rooms. For the most, you'll have to go the main lobby if you want to use the wi-fi. The other thing we did not like were the lack of signs indicating clearly the smoking and non smoking areas. This translated into several instances when people smoke for example in the pizza restaurant or throughout the swimming pools. So if you are a non-smoker like us, I would say, be aware that your enjoyment might be clouded by someone smoking around you. We did not see the staff too worried about this, so just be aware.

Visited the Jewel Paradise Cove for 5 nights with friends. From the moment we arrived the staff were attentive and friendly. The bar tenders were amazing (shout out to Merrik, Tomay, Kevin and Marlon!) . The food was incredible - best I've ever had at a resort. Because the resort is more like a boutique hotel, we didn't have to wait in line for anything. If you opt for a massage, ask for Sofia. There are so many activities to do you don't even have to leave the resort. We're already planning to re-visit next year. If I had to give any suggestions for improvement it would be to provide mini bottles of rum in the mini fridges (you get beer but not rum). Some of the washrooms outside could also have used more frequent cleaning, but they weren't atrocious. The resort as a whole was very clean and well kept. Read less

This was a great resort. We enjoyed every minute of our stay there. The staff is so friendly and helpful. The food was very good and we enjoyed the different restaurants. The beach is small but not over crowded. I would definitely recommend this resort!
