I frequently visit the Casa Maria hotel in Port Maria Jamaica. It's perfectly situated between Ocho Rios and Port Maria, the drive there is wonderful in any direction. World changing history all around, a story at every turn, every corner beautiful fruit trees. Getting to the hotel I realized is on a hill overlooking the Caribbean Sea. The grounds were well maintained, the trees dancing in the cool Caribbean wind. I checked in and first went to the dining area and that is where I saw the out door dining area with direct views of the country side and Caribbean Sea. The bar there is called the 007 bar, i was excited to hear from the staff that Ian Flemming the author of James Bond spend some time here. After hearing that I was in the mood for a James Bond movie but they didn't have any on at the time. I went on vacation to relax and get away which i did sitting there feeling the wind and enjoying my authentic Jamaican meals, I was in paradise. I enjoyed taking with the staff and learning about their culture and customs. I enjoyed how nice it was to feel welcomed to a hotel and not the usual check in and spend all your time sitting in your room until your vacation is over then go home, I have been to those hotels and paid lots of money, but not Casa Maria. I got the real Jamaican experience and loved every minute of it, I learnt so much about Jamaica and it's people from Jamaicans. What's the point of going to a exotic location and not experience the culture, been there done that not doing that again. What I will do again is go back to Casa Maria.
