For groups and families looking for fun in Jamaica, the Jewel Runaway Bay Beach & Golf Resort has plenty to keep you occupied. Although this low-rise resort may not be as flashy as some of its competitors, it attracts repeat visitors for its wealth of activities built in to the all-inclusive price.
The highlight for most families is the expansive water park which has everything from tall spiraling chutes to a lazy river to a smaller splash pad. Built in 2015, the watery playground adds to the family-friendly vibe that attracts so many to this resort.
When you're not busy slip-sliding down the tubes or floating on the lazy river, activities like snorkeling, kayaking and volleyball are all on tap. Unlike most all-inclusives which typically upcharge for unusual or special amenities, nearly all of the activities are free, so go ahead and enjoy a round of golf, a glass-bottomed boat ride or a game of laser tag. Wi-Fi and airport transfers are also included.
If you do feel like shelling out a few extra clams, you can rent a private cabana by the pool, try a spa treatment or take a scuba lesson.
Leave the guilt behind and have some adults-only time. Kids Club receives rave reviews from past guests on Tripadvisor for the exceptional staff and breadth of entertaining pursuits. Kids can go on hay rides, try archery or play table and video games at the tween and teen lounge.
