The Lowdown

No stay at this restorative bayside gem is complete without experiencing its very own jewel—a sultry Himalayan Sea Salt Therapy Lounge at its two-story spa, guaranteed to provide the reset you most likely need; the spa’s 14 treatment rooms also deliver a long list of other relaxation remedies, such as Wild Ginger Deep Tissue and Jamaican Moringa Oil massages. Once the Palmyra Resort, this renovated all-suite property is now a marble-and-natural wood dazzler, with 217 colonial-style accommodations that range from 806-square-foot Oceanfront Junior Suites to three-bedroom villas featuring private plunge pools, soaking tubs, washer/dryers, and full kitchens. Whether you’re indulging in water sports, a game of volleyball (one of the property’s pools is flanked by a net), or grazing at one of the twelve onsite restaurants—choose from al-fresco Tex Mex, a stone-oven pizzeria, or Waves, the resort’s flagship French-Jamaican fine-dining spot—chances are you’ll be spending lots of time wandering this palatial, palm-flanked expanse. Be sure to sample an island-inspired libation, fueled by Jamaica’s national liquor at the property’s breezy cocktail lounge, Rum Runner.

In the Area

The Jewel Grande is just a mile from some of the island’s world-class golf courses such as White Witch and Cinnamon Hill—golfers should inquire about the resort’s unlimited greens fees golf package. Mystic Mountain, a tropical theme park filled with attractions like a state-of-the-art chairlift and the Bobsled (a 3,280-foot gravity-drive through the rainforest) is an hour and a half away. (The resort can arrange a day trip.) Though the property’s adjacent beach can be heavy with sea grass, a range of exhilarating Montego Bay experiences such as swimming with dolphins, fishing, zip-lining, and boating all make for worthy outdoor excursions.

Best girls trip!!!
gretchenz2016

Went on a girls trip with 4 girls - 40ish in age but 25 at heart! Arrived on a Friday and left on a Monday. We were impressed on how spacious it was. You never were fighting for a chair by the beach or pool...You could see people if you wanted, but could avoid them if you didn't... The food and drink were fantastic! We had a fantastic meal with Wayne at the hibachi grill. But what really sets Jewel Grande apart from the rest is the attentiveness of the staff!! Despite how short our trip was, we came to know and love everyone we interacted with from the Jewel Grande! From Dean and Ronald who saw to our every need whether it was beach chairs, a special dinner reservation, or airport transfer, to Tio who took us out on an amazing ride on a hobie boat (a must do) to Chivell who served the best coffee and ice cream to Romario who took care of getting us where we needed to be and gave us an amazing tour of the property. We will never forget our time at Jewel Grande and the teams' 'service from the heart'!!

Beautiful Resort!

We booked this resort on the recommendation of our travel agent. We were both impressed immediately with how friendly everyone was, from security to housekeeping! Our room was a one bedroom ocean view suite with two full baths and a full kitchen. Given that we were all inclusive the kitchen was not needed. The fridge was stocked with some soda, water and beer and was refilled every day. There was also a big whirlpool tub in the master bath.
The resort has two pools, each has its own outside bar and outside grill. One of the pools holds activities (water aerobics, volleyball, etc.) while the other is more for relaxing or swimming. There was always something going on and every night a list of the next day's activities was slipped under your door.
My wife and I booked massages at the Grande Spa. We happened to catch a special and got a couple's massage. Our therapists Marshel and Ophelia were wonderful! If you book a package with the spa, you are entitled to all of the amenities for the day (sauna, steam room, etc.) and they certainly treat you like royalty.
Outstanding food, super friendly service, and of course talented bartenders! I would definitely recommend this resort!
