I’m a foodie when I go on vacay and like a lot of choices (which is kinda funny since  most days my idea of lunch is something out of a drive-thru window).

Jewel Paradise Cove gives me choices.

There are 7 restaurants.  Seven.  And they have different themes too–not just the same dish over and over under a different sauce.

There’s some for casual dining (bathing suits allowed), some “resort chic,” and even a formal one.

Here’s a rundown so you can get an idea of what they have to offer.

  • The Coral Café is your normal buffet spot.  Breakfast/lunch/dinner is served with different choices for every palate.  You can definitely be casual here with a cover-up over your swimsuit and flip flops.  Nice décor, easy in/easy out.
  • The Aquamarina Beach Grill is great for lunchtime and early evening to grab a burger, some fries, a jerk chicken sandwich, etc.  It’s right there by the little side beach near the boardwalk.
  • The Court Jesters Fired-Oven Pizza place is in the same building as the Moonstone by Sophia Restaurant (near the pier and the watersports).  Again, very casual as you can come as you are to help yourself to some eats.

In addition, if you packed tons of cute sundress and strappy sandals, then you can definitely check out these next three  a la Carte restaurants:

  • Golden Sabre Sushi (the name says it all) is located mid-resort in a little cluster of restaurants near Bling! Nightclub.  Lots of creative sushi and shashimi to choose from…yum!
  • Moonstone by Sophia is located near the beach next to the Fired Oven Pizza.  It’s a great Italian spot offering great dishes from both north and south Italy (ahh, the Tiramisu).
  • Jade Samurai is also mid-resort near Bling! Nightclub.  It is the only restaurant that requires reservations.  It is Japanese Teppanyaki style cuisine with a fun chop-chop show (hence the need to make reservations because seating is limited).

The elegant, formal choice at Jewel Paradise Cove is:

  • Platinum.  It is dressy, so pull out your snazzy gear for this one (it’s white glove service).  Platinum is also located mid-resort by Bling! Nightclub.

***The only restaurant that requires reservations is Jade Samurai.  The times and days of operation do vary so please check with the concierge or the front desk for all info.  Of course, all of the restaurants have their hours of operation posted for you to view (if you happen to stop by during an off-time).

But if you missed it, no worries! You can always make it a party in your room as dine-in service is available 24 hours a day (woo woo).

I love a good bar, and Paradise Cove has 6 Bars to choose from.

There are two swim up bars!

  • One in Aquamarina (swim up)
  • The Sunken Treasure (swim-up)  which is located at the main pool.
  • There’s also Jaspers Piano Bar which is located mid-resort near that cluster of restaurants and Bling! Nightclub.
  • The Emerald Lagoon Bar is located in the Emerald Cove section of the resort.
  • The Juice Bar is located right on the main beach.
  • And, of course, there is a bar in Bling! Nightclub.

And the best part is that it’s an all-inclusive resort…so what’s a bar tab?  The only tabs going on will be the bartenders learning your favorite drink preferences (and don’t be surprised when yours is known after the first drink) .

Good food, good fun, and great drinks!  Call me now so you can enjoy it too!
