JRB, End of June/Early July 2014

61 more Sleeps (2 months from today)!

My wife and I will be returning (home) for our 4th time, to Jewel Runaway Bay (9th time on this property). June 28th through July 11th. Celebrating our 16 year wedding anniversary on the 28th.

Through our countdown posts we have always meet some wonder people coming the same time of year. Last year we met a wonderful couple that now shares our anniversary. Hope to see them again. Can’t wait to see what this trip brings. Of course always excited to see our “on staff” family & their smiling faces.

So who else will be joining us this year? Be sure to stop by and say hello. First rounds on me. As we get closer, as always I’ll let everyone know the best way to spot us.

If you have any questions about the property feel free to contact me.

Until the end of June, Happy countdown and safe travels!

Drew & Elba

Cocotel & Mrs. Coco

Hope you have an amazing time! We are booked almost the same dates - expect one year later! 27th June 2015 for two weeks. Seems like forever away, but at least we have Punta Cana on 17th May, and a few weekend Europe breaks in the meantime to keep us going.

Happy travels!

Hey Joe, No Problem. JRB is our home away from home. We're sure to see you in 2015. First time to Jewel? Let me know if you have any questions.

Enjoy!

It will be a first time. I researched extensively, and am very happy that this will fulfill our needs. We have two teenage kids who will be 14 and 16 when we travel. It certainly seemed to tick all the boxes for us all.

Nearer the time I will email them to request a twin room for the kids and hope that won't be a problem. Would be nice to get connecting rooms, but not a massive issue if we can't. The kids are very level headed and sensible.

And if you are there in 2015, I'll get the drinks in!!

Drew -

We'll be there right around the same time. We're arriving on 7/2, and leaving on 7/11. Myself, my husband, and our 2 boys (20 & 16). We were @ JRB last summer (late June), and my husband and I returned in October for our Anniversary. We're very excited to be heading back "home" as a family :)

We'll see you there!

Congrats on your anniversary.

The very good news is that you will be in Jamaica when the lobster season reopens on July 1. Nearly all AI resorts have a big celebration of that event. Grilled lobster tails with lemon garlic butter: yum.

Hey NH, if you were there last year late June we may have crossed paths. We were there last year on the 23rd I believe and well through July 4th. See you there and welcome to the countdown!

Yep - we more than likely did. :) We were there for just 5 days (6/21-6/26), then went to Negril for 5 days.

Yep, we were there. Lots of tattoos including a parrot on my leg. LOL. I'm a bit easy to spot.
