Our honeymoon was WONDERFUL! Some of our favorite things were the local people that worked at the resort--they were honestly the nicest and most fun people we have every experienced. The variety of food at Sandals Ochi was another big turn on. The ease of getting from our side of the resort to the other was another big bonus. Overall, the resort was five star!!!
Club MoBay would have been better used just for the arrival, but it was a nice amenity to have.
Dunn's River Falls catamaran cruise was also an excellent experience. I am glad we did it to break up the vacation and get out of the resort for half a day.
Thank you so much for your assistance!!
We had an amazing trip!!! We were able to really enjoy the resort this time since the weather was perfect!!! We did a lot of relaxing at the beach club area and partying at the pool bar! Mark and George (Kevin) Lopez were way too much fun!! I was introduced to some very yummy drinks such as the Bob Marley, Hummingbird, Uncle Sam, and Dirty Banana! Snorkeling was awesome of course!! Our butlers were absolutely fantastic!! I miss them!!! They took exceptional care of us!!
You were absolutely right about the VIP through immigration, it was the best thing EVER!! We probably wouldn’t fly out of Ft Lauderdale again, it was a nightmare. Way too busy and we spent an hour driving around a parking garage and never found a spot so we had to do valet.
Biggest downfalls were the Ocean Bar and the restaurant being right under our room. The first morning at 4 am they were dragging furniture around. We heard them everyday about 6 am. The Ocean Bar is definitely for the younger crowd and started the party every night at 10 so there wasn’t ever really any quiet time to just listen to the water. They play music very, very loud so it kind of takes away from the Sundowner.
We went to the pool party Friday night which was a lot of fun, but we paid for it. Lol! We went and watched the Steel Drum band Saturday and they were phenomenal!! We watched them 10 years ago, but way better this time!!
Kelly’s on the pier was closed due to construction so they moved it to the hotel area. Best food we had was there. We also loved the Italian restaurant. Kimonos was good, but nothing special as we have a place here we love!! However, our chef Tex was awesome! We ate at Mariners for lunch a couple times too. Their jerk chicken wrap and jerk burger was delicious! Our butlers spoiled us one day by finding us at the pool bar and brought us different meats from the jerk shack which was delicious also.
There is so much to do at the resort all day and night it can get too busy. We actually skipped a few things that our butlers had scheduled so we could check things out and relax. Of course with the Royals in the World Series we had to catch the games.
I definitely can’t say enough about our butlers though!! They were the highlight and felt like family when we left. Their names are Jackie and Stanford. I already have them on FB and hope to keep in touch. As a matter of fact Jackie’s son may be coming to KS to play tennis for Baker. 🙂
We can’t thank you guys enough! Our trip went off without a hitch this time!!! We are already talking about next year, but are looking for something much calmer.
So jealous you’re going to Jamaica! We would live there if we could!! The people their are so happy and some of the hardest working people I’ve ever seen! I only have a couple pics of us together as my Husband hates pictures, but I will send you a couple on Facebook. Feel free to use any of the photos I took. There’s quite a few. I still need to get pics off the actual camera!
Thank you for following up! We look forward to our next trip!!!
