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.

Found the stay very boring and sub par, I was not pleased with the quality of food or the service. I had to wait very long at the restaurant to be served, took 30 mins to take my order, then 30 more to fulfill
Image of the Tripadvisor rating Excellent experience and great service

I had a very fun and restful experience. I came on vacation and the atmosphere, facilities and staff made my stay a memorable one. I would recommend Jewels Paradise Cove, Runaway Bay for the best all-inclusive experience.

Janice the bartender was awesome!!! So friendly and inviting and she also made a great drink 🍹, the bartender special was so good and was almost the only thing I drank. They really take Covid-19 very seriously so that was a definite plus. The only thing I can say is the food could’ve been better at the buffet besides that so much fun 🤩

Great place! Very nice but not too fancy to relax and have fun. Not many guests when we visited (slow season and #covid) so it was very relaxed. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Everything was very clean and sanitized so you are very safe from covid and the restrictions weren't too overbearing. 10/10 would recommend!
