First off, we were put in the first building, and thank God (its the 1000's). There are a lot of building but the further down you go, the further you are from everything......
If you want peace and quiet and like to walk, then it would be perfect but I was happy to eat and drink as close as i could :) The service was dependable on who you had....of course you will have your favs, but i thought i would get better service with tipping, and it didnt really matter either way....which was weird to me? If someone tipped me, i would be a little quicker, but it was still all good. When you sit on the beach, make sure not to be right on beach shoreline row of seats, unless you want to be bothered to buy stuff all day. The vendors/ sellers are not allowed to go beyond the shoreline so if your a little back, they cant come to you. If you walk along the beach to the left, there are vendors all the way down of locals selling things.....you will get harassed a lot, but can get some great deals with negotations. I wish i would have went to a bar/disco like The Jungle or Margaritiville one day instead of the disco at the hotel to get more real Jamaican music. The disco smells like puke and plays songs that you cant dance to. I went on two excursions through Apple. The horseback riding was cool to ride a horse in the sea, but the rest was a lot of waiting to get on and off horses. The other excursion was seeing the 2nd lgest falls and a tour of the Appleton distillery....this was good except first part you look for crocodille s too long, but the falls were AMAZING and not that full of people....and the rum was worth the money :)
