Question about the Jewel

We are in the process of choosing a resort for vaca - We really like the looks of the jewel. For those of you who have been, what do you like the best about it? What don't you like? Also, what's stocked in the minibar????

Mini-bar... stocked with sodas, water and beer with a bottle of champagne.

What do I like best about it ?

The management, the dining, the atmosphere, the service and the facilities.

The only thing that's not 'perfect' for me about The Jewel is the beach which is still nice enough.

Blessings and respect to you, enjoy!

I have not been to the Jewel as the Jewel. I had visited it twice as a Sandals property. It has the largest and best swim up bar that I have experienced. The main pool is large so there is plenty of room for activities, but there are still quiet areas to get away from the action if you want.

The layout of the resort is very compact, so you are never far from wherever you want to be.

The beach is a little disappointing to some.

Do you need to have the concierge room to get liquor in it?

Is the water off of the beach swimmable with nice soft sand bottom??

Yes you need to book concierge or higher to have the bar/fridge stocked....
