First impressions of the street side exterior were not a good reflection of what a nice place this is. Once you walk into the lobby you see how nice the facility's are. Clean everywhere you look. Pools all have something special. Water park is top notch. Great food in the buffet. The restaurants could work harder to be as good.

Smaller resort with a personal touch. Staff was amazing. Our room was large and clean. Any request we made was immediately accommodated including the delivery of a full on twin sized bed including wood frame and mattress (not rollaway) on our first night at 10p after we mistakenly thought the couch was a pullout. We were in the western most...

We love Jewel Runaway Bay -- it is a great family resort. The absolute best part of Jewel is the staff! Teen and Tweens club was great -- they tried so hard to include my shy and reticent kids -- Rhi-Rhi and Tinkerbelle were great and finally won them over with nighttime capture the flag and bracelet making (thank you!)....

Well not quite sure where to start as this place was just perfect! We travelled as a party of 9, 6 adults and 3 kids, on the 5th April for 2 weeks from the UK. Arriving at Sangster Airport, no problems or delays, roughly an hour journey from the airport. Upon arrival we were offered cold towels at reception whilst...

Absolutely loved it! We booked a day trip to this resort and we absolutely loved it! Clean facilities, water park was great, but most of all the service we received by Raymond at the Cabanas was excellent!

We have been to Jewel Runaway Bay 4 times and can't wait to return again. I have gone into more detail in my other reviews, so I will keep this one brief. For us, what sets this resort apart from others is the friendliness of the staff and the amazing programs for children, teens, & tweens. We love the waterpark,...
