This was our first trip to Jamaica, Mo Bay. We stayed at the Iberostar Rose Hall BEACH, the cheaper one of the 3 resorts of Iberostar. The location & staff at Iberostar is what makes this place amazing!! We arrived on Feb. 20th until the 27th. The airport is nice (when departing don't buy any duty free from the 1st duty free shop go to the 2nd shop close to Gate 15, alot cheaper!) from there to the resort it took about 20-25 mins. We checked in fine, friendly service, but no cool refreshments upon arrival. We got room #1131 beachfront suite nice, clean, spacious & the view was perfect! We watched the sunset first & then walked to the Main Buffet were they had lobster & the staff were very friendly. They had a great variety of food, curried lamb, chicken, goat, jerk everyday, pastas, seafoods, roast beef, turkey, the usual hotdogs, burgers, fries, check out the BBQ on the beach, delicious! They also have buffet at the Steak House, except for dinner. Book your dinner reservations early so if you don't have a good meal you can still catch the buffet. The Cajun is the worst, but the Japanese & the Steak House are good! At the Japanese the Chef puts on a lil show (bring camera). The entertainment is good keeps you entertained & if you want to participate in the show just make sure you can have a good laugh at yourself too!! Don`t miss the entertainment on the beach (Thursday). At the Main bar you'll probably meet Ricardo, Gregory, Nadia, Dillon, & at the Music Bar Oren, all great guys we had a blast with them...Ricardo makes great drinks for the ladies if your tired of the usual. The nightclub & spa are in the next resort (SUITES) you can take a cart or walk a couple of mins over. The other 2 resort guests can come & play & eat at the BEACH, but you cannot do the same at the other 2. If you ask the bellmen in the front they'll offer to show you around their resorts! Ok, the beach is narrow when walking & the BEACH sand is definitely nicer than the SUITES (too rough) but best sand is at the GRAND. The water is clear & beautiful & you can walk out 20 yds & the water comes up to your shoulders, you can see your feet, lil crabs, & fish as well as floating makerts they can`t come close to the beach but you can go out to them and check out their stuff. Plenty of room on the beach always find a chair & lots of shade. When we went, there was a cool breeze but it was nice in the sun. One day it rained for half the day so we went shoppin and later the sun came out & it was humid! The Lilliput Craft Village next to the resort is a (enter at your own risk, not part of the resort) great place to bargain. Lots of people go over from the resort, the people are friendly! The Dunn`s River was fun, half day trip & worth buying the DVD they sell of you climbing up ($39US). The Holiday Inn Shopping is a good place to check out souvenirs and things. We only had one problem & that was our room key card wasn`t working and we went to front desk a couple of times to get a new card (1am) and when the bartenders noticed how many times we walked back and forth, they offered some help and we had the night Mgr. Shewa, night maintenance guy, Ricardo the bartender, and us in the hallway at 2am having a good time trying to get the lock to work. We got in but the door lock had to be replaced that same morning at 8am and we didn`t leave our room until it was done even though they said it was ok to leave. All in all we had a great time made good friends with the locals & loved every minute of our time in Jamaica...would go back next week if we could! Tip the staff well they do a hell of a job to make your vacation fun, memorable and give you the feel of Jamaica!! Hope this helps you out! Ya mon!
