John and I have a delightful time teaching fitness classes at Jewel Paradise Cove Resort in Jamaica – so here’s a short review in pictures. We both highly recommend this resort – create a free user profile to check availability
This property is gorgeous – they’ve done a beautiful job with the restoration and upgrades from the old resort. I took this from the tower that leads to the disco and entrance to the water slide – very fun 🙂
Bishop is the local Fitness Pro. He and I worked out the schedule for the week on Monday morning. I had two classes a day – off on Saturday. We’d alternate between a Pilates and Spinning class + an 11:00 pool class. John helped out with a few of the early 7:00 AM power walks.
View from our balcony, looking at the inner courtyard pool and hot tub. A swim up bar is beneath the platform. We found the rooms very nice (but not overly large) and the housekeeping staff did a great job cleaning up after us and keeping us with clean towels.
My Pilates classes were out on this pier – the view and sounds of the ocean were awesome.
Last “Mudslide” of the trip with one of the entertainment staff.
John with Barbie – who was fantastic keeping everyone feeling welcome!
Would we return to teach there again? Absolutely.
Although I do need to caution you that Jewel Paradise Cove has a very small beach. Actually the whole resort is one of the smallest properties we’ve stayed at. For John and I small is fine, we don’t feel compelled to do much beyond hang at the beach.
