We flew in from Vancouver with our 8 month old baby so we were very exhausted. The room next to us were having a party and all we wanted to do was sleep. My husband asked to change our room and they upgraded us immediatly. We had to sacrifice for a double bed though instead of a king size bed which really irritated me because it was our anniversary. The hotel kindly provided a playpen for the baby which was really great.
The hotel grounds are amazing! The beach and the pools were exceptional.
We only went to the buffets and pizzeria. We could never get the early reservations so we couldnt go. They only had 9pm available and that was to late because of baby. As soon as you get to the resort make reservations for the whole week as they fill up fast. The best food on the resort that I had was the jerk chicken stand on the beach. AMAZING!!
We made a couple of trips out of the resort. We went to Scotchies restaurant. DELICIOUS. It's a 5 minute cab drive. We also went to Ocho Rios for some shopping. We went to the supermarket to buy all our presents. Theres also lots of vendors on the street but they were to pushy.
If you want to take a cab anywhere walk out of the resort and theres a cab stop. It's very cheap outside of the resort. We paid $4 U.S to go to Ocho Rios and $4 US to go to scotchies.
Ask the gardners for a coconut then take it to the bar for some booze.
Best Drinks: Mango Pineapple Slushy Drink with Rum, Strawberry Slushy Drink with Rum, Rum and Cream Slushy Drink for Breakfast
There's only wifi in the lobby so I bought the 7 day package for $50. It was worth it because I used it alot on the beach while relaxing. (Skype)
There is no room service. But there is a liquor cabinet with rum vodka gin and whisky. The fridge is always stocked with water juice and coke.
