We arrived to find the most gorgeous room overlooking the beach. Sadly there was an interconnecting door and next door was a young couple with a baby and small child who kept us awake much of the night. The following day Undia and her staff bent over backwards to sort out the problem. They upgraded us to an amazing cottage on the beach. Alfor and Ernest two of the Bell boys, treated us like royalty. The head chef, Stephen from Middlesbrough, produced fantastic food. Their Jamaican specialities were particularly good. Other notable staff were Ricardo, Christopher Golding, Andrew Jones and Renato (who had attitude and was very funny but efficient). There were two stars at the sugar mill. Dwain and Newton. Best of all were our two caddies for the two weeks, Weatburn and Desmond under the supervision of head golfer Stephen. Even if you potted the ball from twenty yards, Westburn was not satisfied. "Oh no, Man, should have been softer. Too hard, Man. You was lucky man." Having said this all the staff were helpful and often amusing. The old Rasta singers in the two restaurants were stars, as was the 93 year old pianist. Much better than the usual piped hotel music. When we lived in Jamaica in the 70's we were always on edge about security. I felt secure and happy the whole time. The holiday was made perfect by our wonderful friends, but even had we been alone we would still have had an amazing time. Great holiday. Expensive but worth every cent.
