On my recent trip to Jamaica I stopped by the brand new Moon Palace Jamaica Grande. If you’re looking for a luxurious hotel in Jamaica, this is a great option. The only downfall is that the beach isn’t too great, but the small bay it sits on is calm and perfect for water sports. Here are a few pictures around the resort! Read more
On my recent short trip to Jamaica I got the opportunity to check out Couples San Souci! It’s a lovely resort, but I can’t imagine to whom I would recommend it. It has a traditional Caribbean open-air feel, which is lovely, but the place is so hilly and tired-looking that I can’t imagine ever staying there myself. The entire resort is pretty much set up on a low cliff that you have tons of stairs to walk (not very much in the humid Jamaican weather) and is big enough to get lost. So if you’re hard of walking or in a wheelchair, you can pretty much rule this place out. Read more
While in Jamaica recently, enjoying a stay at the Secrets St James, I visited a few other resorts including the Jewel Dunn’s River and Jewel Runaway Bay. I was so impressed with both!

Recently I had the chance the stay at the wonderful Secrets St. James for a few nights! I’ve seen quite a few all-inclusive resorts and this was definitely one of the nicer ones, especially being adult only (sorry but I just don’t like kids around when I’m on vacation or splashing water in my drinks at the pool bar)!
We had a Jr Suite Oceanview Preferred Club room. The Preferred Club, costing extra of course, has added amenities like private check in, priority in restaurants, and a little lounge with snacks/dessert bites all day. To be honest I thought it was a waste – while nice, none of it made a difference with me and we were actually further away from the restaurants since it’s considered a quieter section. Read more
