I am considering a March Break holiday to Negril for my 15 year old daughter and I. I have been reading through this forum and looking at many hotels and have several questions, having never been to Jamaica before. Our prime goal is relaxation. We both like to lounge around, read and take walks on the beach. As two females travelling together, safety is also a prime consideration.
Here are my questions:
1. When is the best time to book to get a good deal from Toronto for March? I've noticed that a number of the properties I'm interested in are relatively small, so I'd like to book as early as possible, but at present the only direct flights are quite pricey.
2. It looks like we will have much more choice by staying in a non-all-inclusive property. How much should we expect to spend on meals every day? We really consider eating on this type of holiday to be purely for sustenance, as opposed to experiencing gourmet meals.
3. Any endorsements for hotels or general suggestions are most welcome. Right now for all-inclusive, I have my eye on the Grand Pineapple and for non-all-inclusive, Negril Palms.
Thank you very much in advance for any input you have.
