Jewel Dunn’s River opened in September of 2010 and had been a Sandal’s property; it is now managed by Aimbridge Hospitality and is an adults-only resort less than a mile from Dunn’s River Falls, one of Jamaica’s most popular tourist attractions. The beach-side resort has 250 guestrooms in three buildings; also available are Diamond Butler and Diamond Concierge services. There are six restaurants, five bars, two pools, and a nine-hole golf course onsite. Free transportation is offered from Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay 65 miles away.
All-Inclusive Jewel Dunn’s River Rooms
The resort has 250 guestrooms in three buildings named Diamond, Sapphire, and Emerald Lanai. Each room has a private balcony or patio with views of the ocean or Jamaican mountains and nearby gardens, and the walls of the rooms are white offsetting the dark mahogany furnishings.
The Diamond building offers upgraded butler and concierge services as well as suites and top-of-the-line “Honeymoon Havens,” which are one-bedroom, ocean-front suites and come with butler service. There are also one-bedroom ocean-view butler suites in this building, as well as rooms with concierge service.
Sapphire building has ocean-view rooms, mountain-view rooms and premier guestrooms categories.
Emerald Lanai is centrally located in a garden setting.
