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.
How to Get There
My 2 friends and I went to the Jewel Grande for a girls trip and had an amazing experience. The resort was beautiful, great food, our rooms were above expectations and the staff were welcoming, fun, positive and always put a smile on our faces. (Javon, Alesha, SaShane, Jodi and Jamar) Thanks again for making our girls trip memorable! :)
We arrived in Jamaica on Sunday, November 3rd, 2019 at the Jewel Grande Montego Bay Resort to be warmly by Front Desk Supervisor - Andrew who started our vacation off with a bang by upgrading one of our rooms. He was able to accommodate our party of 6 with adjoining rooms - A504 and A505. One a 2 bedroom suite and the other a 1 bedroom suite. Suffice to say, those accommodations were first class all the way. In addition, to our first class rooms, we had exemplary service from several employees on the resort from the Entertainment staff of Tafari, Sashane and Javan who made sure we were engaged and involved in almost every activity that was available throughout our stay, to the bar and wait staff of Odane, Maxine, Tracy-Ann, Paul, Althea, Jodi-Kay and Nicolene who made our stay from a food perspective a truly awesome one. The food was really really good everywhere we went except for the Seafood Restaurant which although very tasty took way too long (service wise). Other than that minor blip, we couldn't have celebrated a better 60th for my mother.
The Jewel Grande Montego Bay was fantastic! The suites were spacious and very clean. The fitness schedule and instructor (Kevin) was great including daily water aerobics. Entertainment was awesome (Sashane, Javan and Tafariq were the best) Our extended family included 3 kids and there was always something for them to do. The food was great especially the hibachi grill. Pool Service especially Jodi-Kay was always there with a smile. We loved every minute of this vacation and will return without question.
