Shopping??

Would anyone know where to go shopping while staying at the GBP? We always enjoy batering with the locals and hope to do some while there. Also, any local bars/restaurants near the resort? 38 days and counting................

Steve,

No we never made it there :-(

I was so bummed.

Our next trip we are planning to split our time between Falmouth and Negril. That will ensure my getting there for sure.

Any suggestions on Negril as I know what you will say regarding Falmouth..lol ? We were toying with SATP...

Hi Jean, happy Sunday!

I VERY STRONGLY recommend Sunset at the Palms in Negril, I toured around there a couple weeks ago, and it is expanded, yet still as gorgeously natural as ever!

As for Falmouth, as you know the Starfish is an incredible resort for the price and one of my top recommendations. Another couple of options to consider are FDR Pebbles which is a mid-sized moderate resort with a relaxed "summer-camp" type feel to it and then there's also my friend Tony's place the Time N Place Cottages which is close to as simple and basic as you can get, which can be a very pleasant option too!

Blessings and respect to you.

Happy Sunday to you, Steve.

Thanks for the info...would you know off hand if many resort rooms supply fridges in them? Not a big drinker, just would like to have cold water and sodas on hand.

70 degrees here tonight...feels almost like Jamaica...lol

Fridges are sort of "hit or miss"... I've seen many with them and many others that don't have them. They do have (stocked) fridges in all the rooms at Starfish, however from what I remember, they do not have them at Sunset at the Palms... I'm not 100% sure of that though, perhaps make a post to Tamas and ask him, he'll be able to tell you for sure.

Blessings and respect to you.

Steve
