Jamaica Resort Sandals ROCKS

Overview

Quote:
Everyone knew my name and I won almost every contest! I am the Hula Hoop Camp!

Quick Tips:

Everything is included! It is a very peaceful place. If you want to relax this is my favorite place!

Best Way To Get Around:

Most everyone says not to leave your resort. So they have transportation set up for you. They pick you up from the airport and take you back. It is about one and a half hour drive. They also will take you to the other Sandals resorts in the area. You can eat at any of them; It is included! Also they will take you on excretions. They are all priced different. Make sure you pay attention because even though some look great they are about a 4 hour drive away.

Hotel | "Daily Activities"

Quote:
There are activities daily. During the day they have relay races, hula hoop contests, they bring the outdoor market to you, they even show you how to tie die a T shirt. At night they have entertainment. They have a magician, a contortionist, a fire breather, and more competitions. One night they even had a game show with buzzers. It was so much fun. I won of course. But I won about everything I participated in. Since this is a family resort they have nannies to watch your children at night.

Quote:
We went on a shopping excretion. They took us to an open market and a couple normal shops. The market is a little... lets just say be very cautious. We got asked if we would buy drugs a few times. They also followed us around when we would not buy anything. Do not worry keep looking. There will be someone else down the way that has something way better at a better price and not give you a hard time. I learned that the hard way.

Wedding City

Story/Tip

Quote:
It is a great place for a wedding. We had friends marry there and the pictures were the best I have ever seen! There was a white gazebo on the beach. If this is something you or someone you know wants to do it is fantastic. Our friends upgraded their room and got a great package included. The resort even set up a tent with tables and chairs. They had a cake and appetizers. It was all-included! Also one night we went to one of the nicest restaurants there and you we got a four-coarse meal with wine and champagne. I think it was on the top 5 of best rehearsal diners ever!
