This adults-only property goes beyond most all-inclusives to cover not only all snacks and meals at its seven restaurants (from beach grills and pizza to sushi and fine Italian), drinks at its six bars (two swim-up, one piano, one disco), and the usual free non-motorized water sports. But it also furnishes airport transfers, free water skiing, free one-tank scuba dive or lesson per day, free snorkeling excursions (not just along the beach), a tour to Dunn’s River Falls, a shopping tour, and a sunset cruise. There are also no greens fees at (or free shuttles to) the 18-hole golf course attached to its nearby sister hotel, the family-oriented Jewel Runaway Bay Beach & Golf.

There are five categories of tropical-comfy guest room—defined largely by the view and level of service—scattered across nine low buildings. Junior suites come with a butler. Promotions on the hotel’s website ensure that the best rates (savings of 30–40%) are on stays of at least three nights booked in advance.
