Finally!  Change I can believe in.

Check out what’s new and improved since millions were spent transforming the former Breezes resort into the Jewel Runaway Bay Beach and Golf Resort.

Tropical plants, hammock palms, clean sandy beach, and sparkling Caribbean Sea are just as you may remember but now you can make memories for the entire family.

The resort is officially open to all ages. And every member of the family will have the time of their life.

Our “Waterview Guestroom” that was setup with a king bed, ottoman, and comfy armchair.  Our room had just a shower but the connecting room to the kids had a shower and tub combo.  We did not have an ocean view but did have a partial view of the pools.

I did check out one of the Junior Suites that faced the ocean and it was outfitted with a cool plunge pool and concierge service.  This one was in the Turquoise building on the oceanfront.  The extended patio has the personal plunge pool and it’s really sweet.





With 62 connecting rooms its possible to keep the kids close and still enjoy parental privacy.  But its what is happening outside the door that counts.  The menus have changed to include both the healthy and the yummy foods that kids like.  There is even a buffet at the Coral Cafe that is just the right height for a kid to serve their own food.

We tend to split our time between an activity for the whole family or splitting up the team.  I tried a cooking class with my daughter while the wife and son signed up for Beach Olympics.  On our second day I found out that the whole family can participate in laser tag but it usually meant everyone gangs up on Dad.

The resort puts on Mother and Son and Father and Daughter dances, hayrides, boat rides, a Mommy and Me spa day and even sets you up with parent and kid golf lessons.   There are new programs, menus, and activities for each member of the family.

Jewel has upgraded more than the kid stuff.

Adults will appreciate the new Radiant Spa and the PGA-quality golf just next door to the resort.

Brides are complimenting the Wedding Planners and resort staff for being able to handle countless details flawlessly.   Wedding guests are seen to by a friendly and creative staff.

Jewel Runaway Bay is a runaway hit with new and returning visitors.
