“Loved it. Wish I was still there and never came back home. Staff and the other vacationers were all friendly and helpful. Good food. Great excursions. Clean place. Party if you want! I miss it and I hate thinking about the trip, It was a once in a lifetime experience. Wont be able to afford a trip like that again. If you go to Jamaica, book here without even looking at other resorts.” – Brent W. 2/19
“Where do I start!! I just returned home from our trip to Jamaica for my Sweeties birthday and WHAT AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE WE HAD at the Dunn’s River Resort. I just Love their staff.. The staff was excellent, the food was delicious and the resort was clean and well kept from sun up to sun down. If your looking for somewhere to relax and lounge the Jewel Dunn is the place to be. One thing I will say is that the Jewel Dunn is more of a resort for Relaxation, if your looking to party This may not be the best choice for you. The Hotel does have a night club but it wasn’t much to get excited about, no crowd and everyone seemed to be sleep by midnight even on a Friday night. I’ll definitely recommend this Hotel… five stars from me!!!!” – Jalees J. 8/17
