Overview Reviews
Offering direct access to the beach, this Runaway Bay property is within 6 mi (10 km) of Cardiff Hall Beach, Green Grotto Caves, and Runaway Bay Beach. Puerto Seco Beach Park and Dolphin Cove are also within 12 mi (20 km).
2.0 Mediocre
Cons: The service was definitely not I would call "luxury" by any means. We did not shower for two days because there was no cold water - only scalding water. The toilet was not working - could not flush it because cold water was not available to fill the tank. We had to full the waste basket with the scalding water and leave it to get to room temperature so we can take "sponge" baths. I have a lot more to say but I can't do it all here. But I will definitely contact them to file a formal complaint.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: WE stayed for 3 nights and it was really hard to take advantage of everything the hotel has to offer! I love the "Jewel Exclusives" such as the free glass bottom boat tour (which we did do) the trip to Dunns River, sunset cruise etc. That's a great advantage over a lot of hotels. There was also turn down service which I like…though we came back to the room so late the second night I didn't notice there was turn down service until our last night. The food is good. Since I am from Trinidad and my husband is from Jamaica we are very critical when it comes to hotels and local cooking. The Jewel did a good job with the local cuisine which I tend to gravitate towards. I also liked that you didn't need to make reservations for most of their restaurants so we were able to eat there at will. I have been to other hotels where you couldn't even get a reservation after arriving. So it was nice to always have the option of "going out" for dinner. They even serve breakfast in one of the restaurants for a nice sit down experience. I did however smell weed near my room two out of the three days I was there. So that was a bit strange and distasteful for my liking. Overall I have very little to complain about. If I were to suggest an area to improve it would be: Have more local fruit, dessert and pastry options. Many hotels love to offer american desserts and its nice to if they would be more inclined to show off the local tarts, patties, sponge cakes, rum cake, bun etc etc. We give people our food, let's share our local desserts and snacks too! Their entertainment was top notch. compared to other hotels it was above the rest. It was not the typical cheesy type of entertainment that causes me to roll my eyes. This was real singing, dancing, acrobats everyone could enjoy. We were never sure if room service was included as there was no book in our room providing a nice overview of the hotel along with menu choices. Sure we could have called and found out, but my husband opted for a mid-night stroll to the grill vs. calling the front desk and having to wait for his food. The grill ran 24 hours so that was nice. And the jerk there was close to authentic so that was also nice. A nice addition would be to have some Tastee's patties and an ice-cream shop. Like the coffee shop it would have been nice to get some local flavors like rum and raisin and cherry etc. Overall the Jewel has great value for money and we would certainly return.

9.1 Excellent
Pros: I loved the overall appearance and setup of this place. It had a warm, cozy inviting effect to it. The owner was very sweet kind helpful and attentive to my requests and needs!
Cons: The only thing that I did not really care for was having to share a bathroom with the other guests whose room was right across from mine. I would have preferred to have a bathroom in my room.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Mom's village is hotel located right behind a business building. You cant see it from the street, but the sign is there to welcome all guest. Upon arriving, you'll notice behind the shops is a beautiful courtyard that is well maintained. Its a family business, so the people that checked us in were nice and very informative. The room has all your basic needs, (wifi, closet space, shower) and the kitchen outside the room is accessible at anytime. Sometimes, the people who live there use the kitchen to cook breakfast or dinner, so stick around to inquire about the local dishes! The location of this hotel is perfect. The building in front of it has a diner, hair shop, grocery and other shops that serve the community. To the left, it's a 10 min walk to the beach, and to the right you have a church and a string of dive bars for nightlife. The locals are very helpful and even on a weekend night 2am the locals never harassed me for being american or a tourist. This is the perfect hotel for travelers who like to explore the town and experience the daily life in Jamaica.
Cons: There was nothing that i didn't like. If was a traveler that liked being cooked up in a hotel all day and expected an all-inclusive tourist prison, i would be disappointed! Luckily, that's not the case.
