I recently went on vacation to Negril jamacia & stayed at the beaches all inclusive resort with a family I'm very close with and had an amazing time. The resort was well layed out and lots to do. They had several restaurants to choose from & a jerk stand that's open all day & for mid night snacks. The food in the buffet The Mill was also great thanks to the cook Shelly & staff Troy & Susan. The manager Nashena was kind enough to work with my veggie diet & allowed Shelly to whip me up some veggie pasta. Thanks Marjory who was ever where I needed her to be with coffee & a smile :)
So here is my DO / DONT DO list:
DO bring lots of sun screen...lots
DO bring dryer sheets to tuck into clothes as it repels mosquito s. My BFF of 30 years is living proof as she got all bit up last year & this year using sheets she only got 2 bites. Worked for me too.
Do look for Sheldon if you're lost as he's great at directions.
Do go to Cafe De Paris for all your Starbucks type needs. The blue mountain coffee is fabulous.
Do try to get Latoya or Denise as room service. Super sweet girls.
Do meet Oshane in entertainment. He'll make you feel right at home as well as his buddy who's name starts with a K ...maybe kennedy? I'm so sorry I lost my paper with their names on it. They're very entertaining which I guess why they're in entertainment.
Do enjoy a stroll on the beach all the way to the end (2 miles) to the Travelers Inn. This was the highlight of our trip. We were thirsty, hot & very tired from souvenir shopping (I know poor us right) when we were invited in this red shack bar that was as the name states a great place for a traveler. Howard runs the place,Damien sells his grandfathers hats on the beach so his kids have school $$, Michael the fisherman,& Binky who can find you any souvenir you need & is the salt of the earth. To us THEY were jamacia. As real as it gets there. In all its beauty & diversity. You will come to love them as we did.
Do go to Ricks world famous cliff diving spot, but be prepared to tip a lot of people & cave diving is about $10 a person.
Do bring water everywhere you go!
Do try the lazy river...it,ll change your life.
Do learn to scuba dive there. The water is amazingly clear & warm. Its only $90 for cert (good there only) & scuba dives are free. Thanks Craig.
Do look for Clifton on the beach selling his beads, string bracelets, or ANYTHING else you may need.
Dont travel the first day of your vaca away like we did. Get there early AM to enjoy every day you can.
Don't think you don't need sun screen cause you usually don't burn.
Don't forget bug repellent cause sand fleas bites are mean.
Don't look for an ash tray there cause for some reason the don't have many.
Don't expect a descent shower as the pressure in the shower is dismal.
That's it. I hope you all enjoy it as much as we did. We're returning soon too. Lite
