Jewel Paradise Cove

Ocho Rios, Jamaica

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. Hang on, yes it does, green fees at the 18-hole championship Runaway Bay Golf Club are also complimentary. So whether you’re an aficionado or a complete novice, get stuck in. 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.

The resort was beautiful and we felt very safe and secure. The staff was very courteous and warm. Mosquitoes were a problem, but that can be helped, I hope. We learned to ask for more alcohol in your drinks. They are weak if you don't.

We do a lot of travelling in the Caribbean. Multiple trips to Cuba, Mexico, Dominican Republic and St. Martin. We’ve been happy with all of them (except St. Martin). This was our first trip to Jamaica, but definitely not our last to Jamaica and especially this resort. The staff, food, lodging, grounds and beaches are awesome.

The food, beverages, and staff were wonderful. We had an oceanfront suite with butler service. I wish the room had a balcony that you could actually sit out on. The resort offers several free excursions however they were all booked.
