We absolutely loved Jamaica, Excellence, and Kenroy! The resort was impeccable - Very clean, friendly staff, great food, fantastic drinks, etc. I really liked that our room was especially close to the beach and that there many places to sit and catch the sun - beach front, poolside, etc. The one thing that I'll keep in mind for a next trip is that our room/building was incredibly close to the entertainment stage which was very distracting at night.
I've attached a couple of photos from the trip.
We had a fantastic time in Jamaica. Overall, it exceeded my expectations! The food was truly wonderful- my favorite restaurant was the tapas/wine bar, but each restaurant was great. Food was on point for the whole stay at Excellence.
Also, the beach was pristine and uncrowded and the lounge chairs were so plush and comfortable. It goes without a second thought to say that Excellence Oyster Bay was over the top. Thank you for all your help! We had a great time ringing in our 30th birthdays.
Hi Dave, thanks for checking back in with us! We were blown away by how amazing our honeymoon was. The resort exceeded our expectations and had the perfect elegant vibe we imagined we would find at a Sandals or otherwise over the top romance marketed resort.
There were some learning moments that can be passed on. We signed up for the Luminous Lagoon excursion through the resort. We were bused alone off the resort and taken to an outdoor patio of sorts where 40+ others were also waiting for their boat to the lagoon. It was a fine excursion and we really liked it but the next day someone we met at the resort was mentioning how they did Luminous Lagoon but the boat actually picked them up at the resort and took them straight to the lagoon. They didn't have a bus ride with a waiting period. So insider secret for future guests at the resort, book the Luminous Lagoon through the desk where you sign out kayaks rather than the excursion desk in the front lobby.
Otherwise, it was amazing. The beach house with the Excellence Club special access was definitely the way to go. We met a couple honeymooners who had standard rooms and once you are there at the resort it's easy to see that being regretful. We never ran out of bars, restaurants or pools to go to. However, our favorite restaurant was The Lobster House and our second favorite was Zenith, for Excellence Club members only. Oregano's pizza is also pretty great. We wouldn't really recommend the room service though - multiple attempts were letdowns. The spa was incredible and we did the complimentary hydro therapy session and added on a couples massage.
Just plain amazing. Not a regret in the world and we will totally do it again for an anniversary down the road. We cannot stop raving about it to anyone and everyone. HUGE THANKS!
We had an absolutely amazing experience. We are already trying to figure out when we can go back. The rooftop terrace was great, we loved being on the top of the building and not having many other people around us. I would say our favorite drink was the Bob Marley. Our favorite restaurants were the Lobster House and Spice.
Kenroy was also great. One of his workers picked us up from the airport and took us the resort and he was able to take us back to the airport for our departure. They were both comical and informative on the surrounding areas. It was neat seeing where Usain Bolt went to high school.
The only thing I would tell future travelers would be to get the Club MoBay Pass. That saved us a ton of time and stress and got our trip off on the right foot.
Thanks again for everything,
We had the most amazing time!!!!! I took a bunch of notes about what we loved including the excellence staff members. Here you go….they are just a list of random thoughts but I can go into more depth if you want. I’ll also attach a few photos.
We had a great time! We were in Beach House 5 lower level. The Suite was awesome, the view was amazing.
Our favorite place was the infinity pool, we had it to ourselves every morning. The Magna restaurant was our favorite restaurant, but The Grill was just as good.
We went there for a relaxing vacation and that's what we did. No excursions just lounging on beach, pool, or our balcony.
Overall, it was great and we will go back.

I'm still playing catch up with everything and you have been on my list.
YES, YES, YES.... The trip was fabulous. We enjoyed Excellence Oyster Bay so very much. Everything from the service to the room to the food was just wonderful. Kenroy and his team were also wonderful and great service to & from. (we for the most part had put our iPhones away and were in complete paradise enjoying the resort and all that it had to offer). Just what the doctor ordered!!!!
Thank you for everything,
