A Little Piece of Heaven
Over the years my husband and I have vacationed in the Palm Beach area numerous times. This past April, when my ladies bridge group took advantage of some inexpensive fares into the region on Southwest, I foraged the internet for hotel rooms on the beach. While the Ritz Carlton or The Breakers would have been lovely (I've stayed at both...), $500 a night was a little more than any of our gals wanted to spend. On a hunch, we decided to give the Jupiter Beach Resort a try, and wow, we're sure glad we did! Who knew that such a charming, luxurious, oceanside inn could be had for $249 during spring break! The facilities are beautiful and the rooms elegantly appointed with down pillows and duvets. The bed was so comfortable that, I declare, the Westin chain has nothin' on these folks! The bathrooms are marble, and the televisons in each room are large, flat screen, high definition numbers...GREAT! This hotel is on the smallish side, but that took nothing away from the ammenities. They have an excellent restaurant on site (where we enjoyed breakfast each morning), and a poolside bar where we could get salads and such for lunch. The size of the hotel only helped to ensure that the staff knew who we were, and everyone was so friendly. You can bet your bottom dollar that we'll be back there again next spring! Oh, by the way, when we checked out, I failed to check the drawers and accidently left behind some of my nicer things. I was crushed when I realized that. My friends gave me little hope of ever seeing those things again, but, after calling the JBR the next morning, a precious, little clerk named Maria searched the room, found the missing items, and mailed them to me via FedEx...God bless her!!
Jupiter Beach Resort is beautiful. We had a partial oceanview room and the furnishings are lovely. The pool is great and the beach is nice. I was there for just one night, but felt like I was there for days. While there, be sure to visit the Marine Life Center in Juno Beach. The kids will love looking at all of the turtles.
Week of heaven on earth
My husband and I have stayed at the Jupiter Beach Resort two years in a row. We absolutely love it and have no complaints whatsoever. We would be staying there again this year but the hotel is not re-opening until January. We are very disappointed and will miss our week of heaven.
Always feels like family
We have stayed at Jupiter Beach Resort two to three times a year for the last four years and have always found the staff to be professional, friendly, helpful and the same. That is, each time we have been back, we see the same familiar faces, it feels almost like family. We have also found the facilities to be in great shape.
I must disagree with St. Paul MN and Struthers OH who both complained about the service, cleanliness and construction. The rooms, common areas and facilities have always been impeccably clean. The service has always been magnificent. The same smiling faces, the same 4 Star service. The people of JBR really make it feel like home.
We were last there over Memorial Day 2004, when we were told of the sale of the property and of the upcoming complete renovations which were to begin in July. Upon our return home, I went to the JBR website to see what was in store for one of our favorite get-away destinations. While there weren't drawings of the new look, it was fully disclosed that half the hotel would be closed for renovations through the fall and into winter 2004. Our son and daughter-in-law have vacationed there for the last several years in August. Again, when they made their reservations for August 2004, they were told of the ongoing renovations. While they were not able to have their favorite ocean front room, their stay was wonderful.
Don't let the sour grapes of two hard-to-please-grumps keep you away. Then again, maybe I shouldn't say that -- so that we can keep JBR to ourselves!
We could have written the same as reviewer from OH
We also had wished that we avoided Jupiter Beach Resort. We received a call from JBR 2 days before we were to check in. We were told that the call was to "confirm our reservation" and to inform us that they were "under renovations like their website stated". We did not notice any announcements of renovations on their website when we booked.
The room was ok but we were woken each morning before dawn with noise from the construction crew.
The last morning before we left I actually called the desk to inform them that the trucks in the parking lot were making so much noise that we could not sleep. Let me just say that it was not 11am or any 'reasonable' hour...this was before dawn and I actually had to speak to someone on the front desk 'night shift' about the matter. I was told that the manager would be notified when they arrived. We never heard from the manager. When we checked out a few hours later the manager was 'too busy' to talk to us.
When we showed up the place looked like accommodations in Beirut. The construction workers were like 'reveille before dawn'.
If you stay at JBR PLEASE don't have any concerns that need to be addressed by the managment because they will be 'busy' I'm sure.
Vacation from hell
Six days before leaving for Jupiter, we received a letter stating that the resort is under renovation. The rooms were in obvious need of redecorating but the urine that kept the toilet seat clamped shut, the smell of urine in the air, the hair strewn over the bathroom shelves and floor and dirty unwashed dishes in the cupboard were unacceptable. Wouldn't you think? We were unable to get wash clothes and toilet paper. Our electricity was out for extended amounts of time for 3 of the days. We were advised of a 10 minute wait as hours passed. No cable either!!! The jackhammer pounding in the walls next to us, the floor above us and the balcony just outside our room went on for 8 hours Mon-Fri. Try eating lunch or resting with the "sound of an MRI" pounding for hours. The pool and sandbar closed during the afternoon rain -not to reopen until late the next day. Forget about an evening swim with the children. We wasted our timeshare week at a luxury property in Vegas for this! Our complaints fell on dead ears at the front desk where promises of giving us another room were left broken.
Should Not Be Called a Resort
Jupiter is a wonderful place to visit but has limited 'on-beach' options. the beach was nice w/ many shells & few people. each morning the turtle patrol marked new nests. walking n was a fishing pier and inlet for boats. Resort staff was major problem as they seemed not happy to work there beginning with valet personnel to check-in staff & outside attendants. You will need to know places to go & eat on your own as resort staff are no help or give wrong directions. Pool is not exceptional & closes at 7:30 each evening & no personal chairs, umbrellas or coolers are allowed on their beach. a good choice was driving n to dubois beach or s 10-12 miles to singer island to ocean reef beach park which is free & has lifeguard & bathrooms, showers & cool swimming/snorkeling inlet. A hilton is also there so if rates are close I'd go that route. Ocean view on N side was really nice but again each housekeeping left us short of necessary towels & any requests seemed to be imposition. Eat at loggerhead cafe <3pm which is just S. Jetty's has earlybird special @5pm & fishing there.
Loved Jupiter Beach Resort
I love your resort. It's not to big and not to small, it's just right.
It had been a couple of years since I had stayed there, usually for a massage seminar, and it was great to see some of the same faces. I always feel very comfortable there and I love being right on the beach.
We really enjoyed our stay at The Jupiter Beach Resort. We stayed in one of the ocean view rooms on the 6th floor (I believe). Loved the view of the ocean, room was clean and staff was very nice!! We would definitely come here again.
Jupiter Beach Resort - Nice Room
I stayed in one of the Jupiter Beach Resort's deluxe King bed suites, with the "deluxe" status denoting the presence of an unstocked wet bar and refrigerator. The room had an excellent view of the ocean and a walkout balcony, and the main bedroom and sitting room were quite spacious. The hotel has been in operation for some time, but appears to have been recently renovated, and I found it to be in excellent condition for a beach front accomodation. The room's floor was completely tiled, which I think helped to keep things cleaner and less sandy. Charley's Crab House, which is a GREAT (though pricey) restaurant is within easy driving distance.

Today was a better day for Andrew overall which made it a better day for all of us ;-)
We didn't do too much but got to enjoy the view from the apartment while Andrew played and slept.
I did get down to the beach for about 20 minutes myself ...
Today we took Andrew down to the beach for the first time. Yes we had sunblock on him :)
He seemed to like looking at the water as we walked along the shore. Jeff tried putting his feet in a few times but I think since the waves were coming at him and it wasn't exactly warm, he got a little scared but handled it like a champ.
Then we took him over to the ...
... mass at St. Jude's catholic church. It had a Floridian feel. The altar was a bamboo type, beautiful inside and out. We chilled on Sunday and just hung out around the pool and grilled out at the tiki hut park (it's actually called Pelican Park) because of, you guessed it, lots of pelicans here.
Monday I kayaked and swam. I could get along with this lifestyle.
... them and shooting up into the sky. We decided to try low tide for our first visit.
The night before I looked up the tide schedule for Jupiter. We arrived around 11:15, which was perfect. Parking was a cinch. There's two parking lots (note that they close around 4:30) just past the first sign for Blowing Rocks. We started our hike by checking out ...
... survived quite well, however.
On arriving at the park, the real problems began. In spite of having reservations, it still took us over half an hour to get registered. The two gals there seemed to be doing their best, but did a lot of repeating of things and it seemed that the one at the counter had majored in Redundancy. I did meet a very friendly and interesting fellow Air Force Vet from Alabama, who has lived here for many years. We did our share ...
