Come Back to Jamaica!

I have not been in lovely Jamaica for 24 hours yet and my stay can already be categorized as amazing! Upon arrival I was shown to the Sandals/Beaches Lounge at the airport. I was quickly checked in by a kindly resort host who asked if I was a supermodel - he got serious brownie points for that! - and he let me know that Lorraine and I would have a personal driver for our trip to Negril. While waiting for Lorraine to arrive, I spent time in the lounge enjoying a Red Stripe and the comfy decor of the lounge.



Lorraine checked in, had a Red Stripe too and we were soon escorted to our private transportation.

 Our driver Steve was very helpful and he also had Red Stripe, water and hor'd'evers for our hour long trip.




Once we arrived at Beaches, the Jamaican hospitality continued.



After a quick pit stop, I joined Lorraine in the Suites Concierge for check-in. Our concierge, Udell provided us with sparkling wine and took us up to our Grand Luxe Beachfront room.



There we were greeted with a fully stocked refrigerator, a bottle of wine and a fruit and cheese plate. Beaches really knows how to treat you with style!

We spent some time unpacking (one of us may have packed way too many shoes and clothes...ahem) and then heard the sounds of the Sesame Street parade passing by our door. I tried to get some photos but it was already nightfall so that didn't work out but the live marching band was a sight to be seen.

We had dinner on the beach and my first drink was coconut water - directly from a coconut! I had mine with a splash of coconut rum! After dinner there was dancing, a fire eater, and a limbo king. We soon went back to the room just to relax and watch some television. A late night snack attack hit and I ventured about 50 feet away to Café Carnivale for a veggie patty and a beef patty for Lorraine. After watching Scandal, we both went to sleep, ready for the adventures ahead of us. Reggae Half-Marathon on Saturday and today, a tour of the property! I wish every day my office looked like this.....







Disclosure: I received a media rate for the stay at Beaches Resort Negril. All opinions are my own.
