Jewel Runaway Bay Beach & Golf Resort is located approximately 1 1/2 hours from the Montego Bay airport (heading toward Ocho Rios). Jewel Runaway Bay is a family all inclusive resort which I think is also very suited to couples and groups of friends.
What stands out from my experience with Jewel Runaway Bay is the amazing beach and fantastic friendly service of the resort staff. We were welcomed personally throughout the day by everyone from the gardeners to the service staff to the hotel management and everyone seemed genuinely concerned that we were enjoying our stay. The beach is long and wide and when you walk out into the water, it's warm and shallow - perfect for swimming. And there's snorkeling nearby!
Jewel Runaway Bay was purchased from Breezes and has and is undergoing complete renovations and updating. Most of the common areas have already been renovated as have many of the rooms. We did stay in a renovated room and while it is not cosmetically modern, it was very comfortably Jamaican and I had no complaints. Some buildings are still being updated and a kids water park is scheduled to be added near the Topaz building very soon.
I think this resort is a great mid-priced all inclusive.
