Jewel Dunn's River Resort

Jump to last reply

Looking at a 5 day vacay for my anniversary in May at Jewel Dunn's river resort and looking for input. This resort was formerly a Sandals which closed in june 2010. I believe Sandals had two properties inthe Ocho Rios/Dunn"s River area dn decided to expand one and make it bigger and close the smaller one. The resort was then purchased in august, renovated and r-opened as the Jewel Dunn"s River resort in December of 2010 so there are not a whole lot of reviews out there on this one. Resort is still adults only (but not couples only) and appears really nice in the pictires. However, the prices jsut seem too good to be true. I am wondering are the prices low becasue resort is not that great or because they are trying to bring business and get some adverstising/reviews out there with the new name. Like Sandals they have regulr rooms and "concierge level" rooms which include in room bar and room service at no extra pric eif you ar ein these rooms. The porice I foudn for 4 nights/5days in concierge level room was $900/person and htis includes rountrip airfare from Orlando which was at least $300 person. In other words, the proce is only about $120/night all -inclusive and that is in the concierge level suite. Soounds great! but I need confirmation that it is a good place. Checked tripadvisor and there are a few reviews and it appears a coupel reviews from JAnuary showed they were still workign the kinks out with service, staff etc but that the reviews from late Feb and MArch seem alright.

Anyone anyone let me know what you think especially if you have been to the resort!
