This review is a little late but still wanted to share our amazing experience of this resort. We have now travelled here twice March 2014 and May 2016. Our first trip we had our 4 month old and 19 month old so our priorities were shaded areas and kid friendly. The resort did not disappoint. From the amazing wait staff... More

Upon arrival we were greeted and welcomed back. Getting our room 1239 and checking in went smoothly. Once we got into our room I immediately noticed it wasn't very cool so I set the temp to 68 F and went out to enjoy. After 3 hours of enjoying the pools & bar we returned to the room to get ready...

We visited Jewel Runaway Bay during the Thanksgiving holiday, just myself and a 4 and 6 year old. It was cloudy and rainy most of our stay, but that did not damper our trip. The rooms had been updated, even though the buildings were older, and we did not have any bug issues. We were in a second floor waterview... More

We spent 8 nights/9 days at the Jewel in December 2014--just before Christmas. Had a great time. Nothing to complain about--the property was nice, had a lovely ocean view balcony suite, the food was good and staff did a good job keeping the kids (and adults) entertained. Particularly there was an older slightly disabled gentlemen who the girls painted with... More

We (the “JAM5”) just returned from a wonderful week at the Jewel Runaway Bay to celebrate Friendsgiving a.k.a. Thanksgiving with friends. Our group was 22 people strong from 5 different families and had 10 adults and 12 kids (ages 9-15). We booked a combination of Ocean Front Jr. Suites and Garden Rooms. The adults and kids all agree that this... More

First off, room we had was just awesome, would hate to give away a top secret, but we thought room 1241 was just perfect, view over looking infinity pool and beach and quiet every night and morning!

Dear guest, I am sure there is more to the story. I am sorry that you did not let us know that you were having a problem with getting your refrigerator stocked. We could have sent someone right over to stock it. I am surprised that your 2 year old could not find plenty to do as we have an... More

I would like to advise the managing staff that you have hired some of the best people I have ever met at a resort. Firstly, Shamille Hanchar in the buffet is the absolute best waitress we have encountered. She had our coffee, juice and water waiting for us each morning along with her beautiful smile! She was truly outstanding and... More
