From the moment we walked in to the lobby and met Avia until we left, we had a fabulous time! Our Sentry building room was spectacular. A/C was nice! Always clean and even had turn down service! Our balcony overlooked the swim up bar and had a great ocean view. It was not loud during the day nor was it at night. We had great views of a thunder and lightning storm over the ocean.
The breakfast buffet with the make your own morning beverages( mimosas and Bloody Mary's) was always fantastic! Ringo and the staff made you feel welcome and made sure you had whatever you needed!
Yes the ocean had patches of seaweed but it is certainly not the hotels fault. If you get into a patch MOVE! The beach servers were great. I didn't have to wear water shoes!
The pools were warm and clean. The swim up bar with Henry was fun! Never had to wait for a drink. Lots of laughs! Participated in water aerobics with a drink in my hand and had a blast! It really is a good work out. Learned to dance one afternoon!
The guests were fantastic. Met so many great people ( a shout out to the Ohioans, the couple from Hamilton,Canada and so many more.)We ate at the Steakhouse (slow but good) The seafood restaurant was excellent! The octopus carpachio was great. The Asian restaurant was good but it was hot! ( there was a portable a/c so they are trying.) The food at the pelican was good chicken wings yum... order a pizza and have it delivered to there!
I have to say we had an absolute blast at the Clubhouse bar with Ricardo! He makes a mean mojito along with other drinks. But his signature drink in our eyes is his "Horny Donkey". It is excellent! When you go to Jewel Grande, ask Ricardo for one! He will smile and know who told you to try one!
We can't wait to go back ! Already planning our next trip!
The room was gorgeous, I don't think the pictures on the website even do it justice. The ocean view is definitely worth the little extra money. We went on a very quiet week (just after labor day when all kids went back to school), so I can only speak on the experience we had. It was perfect, I highly recommend going during a quiet week. The service was outstanding. Everyone we met seemed extremely happy to work here and wanted nothing but our experience to be outstanding.
The food was amazing. Definitely make reservations for the hibachi table, it was DELICIOUS. We also took advantage of the fresh lobsters caught behind the hotel and had one prepared. It was amazing! All of the restaurants were great. The poolside bars also had great food you could grab in between pool and beach activities. But the lunch buffet is not to be missed. We only took advantage the last day because I loved the chicken wings by the pool so much I insisted on eating them every day. Don't miss the lunch buffet though. It was great!!
The drinks are strong and and the liquor is good. We had a lot of friends make us worry because of their experiences with watered down alcohol or low quality liquors, but not at the Jewel Grande! I drank my Titos and soda just how I like it!
They truly aim to please and the only negative is my own fault, i missed time in the spa! It's beautiful, definitely take advantage of their daily specials!
