New to Jamaica - Jewel Runaway Bay - Bunch of questions?


First time to Jamaica and obviously to JRB, travelling with my wife and 2 kids(3-7). I have quite a few questions and hopefully I will get answers to some of them.

1-Staying in a regular(premium) room, from what I understand there are 3 buildings: Topaz-Ruby-Opal, which one would be be the quieter one, as my youngest might need a nap in the afternoon, which building should I request a room in ?

2-Again, from my understanding, staying in a regular room you don’t get beer in the stocked fridge? Is this correct ? Is this negotiable…can I trade my pops for beer ?

3-There is no reservation needed for the restaurant except the Japanese, how does it work ? First come first serve ?

4-Which e-mail should I use if I want to e-mail the resort for special request ?

5-I know that JRB has it’s own transfer from the airport to the resort, but is this only if you booked directly with them? I guess this is more for Canadians that have traveled with Sunwing , will it be a Sunwing transfer or the JRB ? If it’s the JRB at least this will guarantee a direct trip to resort without any stops along the way.

6-Airport to JRB is around 1h -1h15 ?

7-I know there is no way to predict this, but we should be at the Montego Bay airport on a Friday at 10h30am, is this generally a crazy time at the airport or not really ?

Just email the resort and they will be happy to answer all your questions.
