The Jade Samurai's meals receive rave reviews from diners
Resort is a bit removed from Jamaica's closest international airport
Situated about 55 miles east of Sangster International Airport along Jamaica's northern shore, the all-inclusive Jewel Dunn's River Beach Resort & Spa caters exclusively to adults. Its 250 guest rooms sprawl across three buildings – Diamond, Sapphire and Emerald Lanai – and each contains a four-poster bed atop a cool ceramic tile floor, along with a stocked minifridge, a flat-screen TV and complimentary Wi-Fi access. Also spread throughout the resort are six dining facilities; guests rave about the impeccable dishes and attentive staff found at The Jade Samurai – a Japanese, teppanyaki-style restaurant. This property also offers a full menu of activities: R&R-seekers may lounge on the beach or by the pools, or choose from Radiant Spa's full treatment menu, while more active travelers can take an excursion to Dunn's River Falls & Park or tee off for free at the Runaway Bay Golf Club.

Critic Reviews


The 250-room Jewel Dunn's River Beach Resort & Spa, Ocho Rios, Curio Collection by Hilton is an upscale adult-only property with a peaceful location along the beach. Although charming with their colonial-style decor, rooms are showing a bit of wear.



From the waterfall in the main pool, inspired by the famous Dunn's River Falls, to the bag of jewels placed on your pillow, this upscale resort for adults is intimate and friendly with a classy casual feel. A walk down a frescoed, arched-ceiling hallway leads to a full-service spa as well as six restaurants, which cater to every taste, and two clubs.



This all-inclusive resort lies just up the road from the north coast's popular Dunn's River Falls attraction. As with other Jewel properties, it truly is all-inclusive.



This lovely adults-only, all-inclusive resort offers a range of tastefully decorated and comfortable guest rooms with plump upholstered chairs. There are also suites with butler service.
