“Home away from home -Vibrant Family Vacation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2010

Ok Kirk and I wanted to plan a vacation to celebrate our pre-engagement and commitment with the main people in our families, home away from home was our concept. We chose a 3 bedroom townhouse and a studio apartment at Silver Palms to host our aunts, brothers mothers, baby cousins, you name it. When we drove in the Jamaican housekeepers/cooks which were included in the package greeted us and were so eager to assist us. Immediately, they helped us unpacked and settle in and we discussed our menu for the weekend based on our grocery which we carried. One of them quickly identified that I did not have pumpkin for my Saturday soup special 'Oops' and gave us directions to the supermarket in ocho rios. It was just a warm feeling, the master bedroom located upstairs in the 3 bedroom which my brother got with his g/f came equipt with a King size bedroom, small jacuzzi and balcony ( I will admit I was bit jealous or better yet impressed but Kirk and I had the studios to ourselves away from them),. With a large flat screen TV in his room he immediately hooked up his Playstation and XBox to it and you know the rest. The living room opened unto a small patio with lounge chairs that was shaded by a hawning and a small fence with lingering house plants separated us from our neighbours who consisted of other familes with young children, toddlers to a few drinking buddies who look like they were reminiscing good times. The pool was located in the middle of the complex with a jacuzzi tub shaded by a gazebo. Our familes were really happy they came here. Outside of the complex 1 minute walk away was the beach which was also shared by other hotels within Old Fort Bay. The variety of meals prepared by the housekeepers were truly delightful homestyle cooking based on our specific request from my vegetarian brother who only eats fish, my new aunt who was watching her waist and cholestorol level (her dishes had to be specially prepared in olive oil), to the toddlers who could not manage the spicy pepper to the rest of us who just wanted to tantalize our taste buds. It was truly amazing. The rest of the vacation we went horse back riding at chukka cove which was less than 15 minutes drive from us. It was really hard leaving because of the brief friendship we shared with the housekeepers but we vowed we would go back.
