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.

Awesome resort and staff! One of the best vacation experiences ever. The staff are the nicest and most polite people I’ve ever come across in the entire world! The beach and pool were great. A fantastic resort to relax and enjoy.

This hotel is very nice, quiet , friendly, great for a 7 day stay. The food was good, so were the drinks- smoothie bar and coffee bar were excellent. The rooms are a bit small, and one drawback was in the buffet at dinner the band that played was very loud.Many guests were complaining about it.

We were sorry to leave, and hope to be back - soon. This is a unique resort, perfect for a quiet couples getaway or for a group party all night. We saw many people enjoying both types of vacation, without getting on each other's nerves, thanks to the unique design of this resort. Instead of consisting of huge monolithic areas - the biggest pool, the longest beach possible - Jewel has a variety of smaller, intimate areas. Three pools (all with pool bars and Jacuzzi's), two beaches - connected by a lovely boardwalk along a sea cliff of volcanic rock, hammock areas, little groves of treas with benches ... The party goes on in one spot, while a few dozen yards away the snooze can be on in another. The food, beverages, beaches, grounds, room, and all the basics like A/C, water pressure and so on were top notch for this price range. But what really makes this place special is the amazingly friendly, efficient, and helpful staff. We have been to several dozen all inclusive resorts between the two of us, and this is hands down the best customer service experience we have ever come across. Crystal - on reception - calmly settled matters when we had an - ahem - mild disagreement with our Sunwing rep Simoy - at bar - *noticed* my girlfriend was looking peked and then ran around and found herbal tea for her Iyesha - night coffee - so friendly Brian - lifeguard on duty at "our" pool - so friendly, had some good talks. and he took great care of "our" pool Marcia - cleaned our room to perfection every time. flower petals on the bed! And many more names we didn't manage to retain. Everyone was so very nice, and so efficient, it was almost unbelievable. For those who care to venture forth (which we did) there are several *excellent* restaurants very nearby, and the larger town of Ocho Rios is quite handy as well. A quick word on the check-in process - we read a few recent reviews that mentioned a lengthy and arduous check-in, and we were bracing ourselves for this. But Jewel has clearly been listening. By the time my girlfriend was done with her hot towel and cold beverage the Jewel staff member was waiting on us to take us to our room - one brief form to fill in, one credit card swipe, and that was it. It was literally the fastest check in I ever experienced at a resort. This is a smaller resort. But for us it was perfect, and perfectly relaxing. Just what we needed. Hope so much it stays at this level for many years to come, so we can keep enjoying! Read less

Room on the standard side. Regular amenities. Jacuzzi bathtub. Room has no soundproofing at all. Nice pools. Pleasant temperature. All with swim up bars which was great. Beach needs help. Stony and rough sand. Nice variety of restaurants and the food is good but not great. The variety is not that great though. Staff is superb. The hotel gets some of the best scores for their staff interaction. Top notch. Good value for money but don't expect the wow and flutter experience. Read less
