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.

Jewel Runaway Bay wow you guys were great. Every staff person was helpful and did their best to make our stay memorable and comfortable. My husband, our two boys ages 9 &11 and grandparents (3 generations) and we had an amazing time. The staff, shows, the food, the resort...all exceptional. Lots to do for all ages. We wanted to make mention of some of the staff that always went above and beyond. Cookie, Natashia, Rebel 9, Dacian, Jennifer (she's is so patient, she made our boys bracelets that they got to design). The grounds keepers and entertainment staff thank you all. Read less

Me and the wife just returned from JPC on the 18th of May from our wedding anniversary and we have not stopped talking about the experience yet. Let me start by saying this was both of our 1st time traveling to ANY all Inclusive so all of this is coming from a rookie traveler. When we decided to book a trip i looked for months hoping to find the perfect place and i couldn't have picked a better one. From the time we got to the resort till the time we left we were pampered and spoiled. Yes the ride from the airport is a little lengthy but well worth it and you get to see a lot of interesting things while traveling. (The ride itself is an experience) Nothing at all to complain about for sure. Sit back enjoy the ride and don't look for something to complain about as too many people do now days. "NO WORRIES MON" FOOD AND BEVERAGE..very good we visited all places except for Platinum( didn't feel like dressing up) and everything thing we had was good. Cheeseburgers at 2pm or 2am and always served with a smile at the Aquamarine bar. Even did room service one time and they brought us fresh burgers. Buffet: good food all the time never had a bad meal fresh eggs and omelets in the morning, fresh cooked pasta bar at lunch and a wonderful amount of deserts. Yes i have read reviews saying that there are birds flying in and out and the service was sub par. Well 1st clue to those people should have been when you walk in and there is no doors or walls on half the restaurant you are going to have that happen. (Must not have ever ate outside i guess. But anyway top notch food again service was good as well. Hibachi was our favorite by far. OSHANE not sure that i spelled his name correct but what a good guy all around he cooked for us twice at Hibachi and was also cooking at aquamarine one night. This guy is all about service not sure he shouldn't be moved to the entertainment department. Nice job MR.CHAN...LOL.. good job BAR SERVICE: Patrick, Ronaldo,Tempique. Amazing job, these people do a great job taking care of guest. And i also need mention i never had any problems getting any drinks from anyone when i wanted them. I would start in the morning at the coffee shop with amazing service and coffee and then move on to drinking some Red Stripe for lunch and then on to Johnny Walker and/or Absolute for the evening i asked for top shelf all the time and never had any issues as i have seen mentioned in other reviews. Entertainment. again these guys do a great job in always trying to have something going on that you can go and do if you want,. we did not take in much of the entertainment but what we did attend was top notch. Milton seemed like the guy doing most of the planning. Water sports were readily available whenever you wanted to attend I Snorkeled for the 1st time and this is a must do while there, the wife had to talk me into it but once i did i loved it. we didn't do any of the other activities offered but could have with no problem. In conclusion we met some of the nicest and coolest people while on our trip and i'm sure friends that we will have for years to come. So if this is your 1st time traveling and you are skeptical like i was your search is over look no further you have found the place to go. Just book it and you wont be disappointed. To the staff and management very nice job!! The Service From the Heart that you and your staff are displaying everyday is extraordinary keep up the good work and we look forward to seeing you all again next year.(it would have already been booked but you cant book that far out) Thank you for making our trip the best ever.

Once again the JPC did not disappoint. Was everything perfect...no? But nothing ever is. The food was good, staff friendly, clean and beautiful grounds. The free excursions make it such a great value. We may even return for a 3rd time down the road. Would recommend. Read less
