Jewel Paradise Cove

Runaway Bay, Jamaica

Virgin rating

The hotel

Tucked away in a secluded location in Runaway Bay, the Jewel Paradise Cove is nothing short of idyllic. Strictly for adults only, it’s all-inclusive too, not just of meals, snacks and local 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 makes 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 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, pool-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.

My wife and I stayed at the resort during our honeymoon. It is a very small (200 ish room) resort that is about an hour from the airport. It is a little outdated, but they are working on upgrades parts of the hotel. The staff made up for the outdated look of the hotel. For example, the WiFi works through the hotel. Once you on our their WiFi, you don't have to recount when you move locations. The WiFi is one of the many updates that the staff are working on. When we arrived, the staff offered us refreshments as we checked in. We stayed in a butler suite room. Twayne was the staff that helped us during our check-in. He was also one of the butler. He gave us a tour of the hotel and walked us into out room. He was great. Christa and Raymond were the other butlers for our stay. They handled everything that we needed. They reserved pool chairs, beach chairs, and made reservations for dinner. During our staff, Christa, Raymond, and Twayne always check in on us via texting or when they saw us around the hotel. They were the best. Food at resorts can be hit or miss, but the food at Jewel Paradise Cove was amazing. The hibachi, sushi, and jerk hut were the best. We came for food and the drinks. Jayton was one of the newer barters at the hotel. He would always make the best drinks and he would always talk to us. He made us feel welcome. It was great talking to him during our stay. Besides the good, the entertainment staff made our stay. Dimario and Britnee were always playing a game, dancing, playing music, and just coming by to say hi. They really made our stay. The best part of the stay was the Sunset cruise. My wife and I were the only people on the cruise, so the caption of the boat took special care of us. We loved it. We will be back. Read less

My husband and I recently went to Jewel Paradise Cove and celebrated our 7th year anniversary. We have been to other resorts and this one has succeeded most of our past experiences. This being our first time visiting Jamaica we had a blast. The hotel provided so much entertainment, it has many bars and swim up bars. It never felt over crowded. It has two options for beaches, the main one and the quiet one. We also were able to book excursions through the hotel and paid a fair price. All three excursions we left and came back on time, the guides were amazing and never felt rushed. We had Nancy for our Luminous Lagoon. Chaka was our guide for the Bob Marley Mausoleum. Chukka the Dunn's River falls and catamaran company was spectacular, the catamaran crew was so much fun and very helpful. Michael our transfer driver was wonderful. The staff at Jewel Paradise Cove were always very hospitable. Big thanks to Rafoy, Jevaine, Brittani, Dimario, Douglas, and Jovane for making our stay memorable. Read less
