If you are looking to go to Montego Bay, Jamaica..look no further than the Jewel Grande! My boyfriend and I went for a vacation that happened to work out to go on his birthday as well! When we arrived early, we were greeted with cold hand towels and iced ginger lemonade, checked in right away with Alexa who was very friendly and escorted to our gorgeous oceanfront suite by our butler "Kade". He was very kind and helpful from the start. He had decorated our bed and room for my boyfriend Jason's birthday without me even requesting it! 😊🍾 The room was modern and beautiful with a breathtaking view. The entire time was nothing short of amazing from the resort itself to the service, food, entertainment and staff! We met our next butler "Lenroy" who was outgoing and on point. He saught us out to be sure we had everything we could have needed and or wanted including late night service. We had never had a butler before so they informed us what all you can ask them to do and they even searched to bring us coconut drinks per my request.
Janoy made us our first drinks after arriving and the friendship started from there. He is such a fun, sweet and amazingly genuine person. We could tell that from the beginning which is why we would ask him where he was working next and make it a point to go see him time & time again. He made my boyfriends birthday night so special including playing a song for us to slow dance to. He hands down made our stay even better! We loved him! Next, we made friends with Roxann! She is the sweetest soul who works full time while going to school and being a single mom! Having been a single mom in my past, I have the upmost respect for her & I know how hard it is. She gave us exceptional service and again was 100% genuine. We hope you keep sharing your awesome laugh with people everyday! We hope she is truly blessed in life with what she deserves. Thank you Roxann & until we meet again! Julian has a special place in our hearts too. She sang Happy Birthday with another staff member to my boyfriend with his dessert on her head at breakfast! She had some very kind words to say about me & it is greatly appreciated. We told her we would say goodbye at our last buffet breakfast but we changed our minds to room service. We couldn't leave without saying goodbye. We looked & found her working hard, her smile lit up like it always had & said she had been looking for us all morning. She then gave us each a bracelet! We were so touched & hugged for an extended time goodbye. Damian was so funny, gave us excellent service and showed us where we can learn how to dance Jamaican style! Jamar also was very funny and we enjoyed him too along with Henry! We cant remember everyone's name but they were all amazing! A few others that come to mind is Shekera, Oshin, Jodian, Patrick, Shauntel and Aneika! We hope we spelled those right. Shout out to all the cooks for the great food and even getting out on the dance floor.
It was a perfect mix of not too loud but still had entertainment and or something for everyone! The DJ at different times we loved too..especially DJ Janoy! Ringo the manager was on top of everything, making sure all the guests received top notch service, was so kind and we want him to know how amazing they all are including him! We said many times to each other and the staff we made friends with (with tears in our eyes), what we loved is they were genuine and they connected with us..not just served us! That is priceless! They work very hard & long hours but still treat you with such kindness and greet you with a smile everytime! They all deserve a raise in our book. Our room stayed clean and fully stocked! We enjoyed Fabians dance moves and fun personality! Tafari who conducted the nightly entertainment was awesome, a great dancer and knew how to work the crowd. Even though we didn't get to say goodbye, we thank you & wish you all the best! The street dance party made my boyfriends birthday night so great! He loved watching me dance with the pros in Jamaica! Lol!
We will highly consider going back to this same place because of how wonderful it was overall. Last time we stayed at Hyatt and we feel Jewel Grande exceeded our expectations and was even better than the last! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! We will carry these memories with us forever! We would live there or at least buy a second home maybe one day..Love Love Love!! Until next time!
After researching hotels in the MoBay area, we decided on Jewel Grande. We were specifically looking for a resort that would be relaxing, romantic and all-inclusive with well maintained grounds. This trip exceeded all of our expectations. From the time we checked in and were offered a ginger lemonade, the hospitality did not end. Our favorite butler, Denton, was so attentive to detail. We were not sure what to expect when we were told that we would be assigned to a butler, but he was extremely helpful with making spa and dinner reservations. He would also check on us throughout the day to ensure we had everything we needed. During our stay we were also celebrating our anniversary. I had the pleasure of working with Shanique (special events) to plan a romantic dinner and have professional photos taken during our stay. She made this process a breeze and took care of everything for us. I can't say enough about our stay- the honeymoon suite was beautiful, the grounds were very well maintained, the food was delicious, the spa was amazing and the staff were so kind. If you are looking for a resort that is relaxing and want to enjoy just being in Jamaica, this is the place for you. This is not, however, the place to go if you are looking for a lot of loud music and planned activities past 10pm. Thank you staff at Jewel Grande for a wonderful experience-- we will DEFINITELY be back!
