i Dave! We had an amazing time. We loved our room....had breakfast on the balcony every morning. Loved the view and how quiet the resort was. It was probably the most relaxing vacation we had ever taken. When I heard it was going to be a whole week I thought it would be too long. But we both said we could have stayed even longer.
The best thing about the butler service was being set up at the beach cabana with drinks and water. They came and took our lunch order everyday. We LOVED the jerk chicken.
We weren’t sure about the price difference between butler service and no butler service. Don’t know what we’d miss if we didn’t do it. Does that make sense? We are pretty low key as far as what we need on vacation . I understand the beach cabana was a butler level service and we’d for sure miss that.
We went to the Y and S Falls with Kenroy. We really enjoyed meeting Kenroy and the Falls. Kenroy was great to talk to about Jamaica. He brought is what he said was “The Best of the West” jerk sauce to take home. We ended up skipping the Pelican Bar.
Didn’t love how long it takes to get to the resort from airport. Those roads are crazy!
The biggest negative for us was we really enjoy hanging in the water. But there was seaweed everywhere.
One other thing, I would have liked better seafood. We had seafood several nights but for being on an island, I would have hoped for better. That could be the all inclusive thing. And because it was such a remote location, leaving the property to go to a restaurant was not really an option.
Overall, this was almost the perfect vacation! We really just relaxed and enjoyed. I gave you the good and the bad but the good far outweighed the negatives. Thanks for helping Leonard plan this great surprise!
Thank you for checking in during our trip! All went really well. We loved the resort!!!! Back in 2010 Kim told us it (and st Lucia where we ended up) would be a great honeymoon destination. Kim you were right, we loved it. Great resort, friendly staff and they were on top of things. Nice beach, fun pools and amazing ocean and sunset view from Dutch village. I’ve attached some pictures.
It was so nice to have some time to rest and be together. Our weather wasn't fabulous, but I know that's outside of control. Our butlers were fabulous, particularly Ainsley. Our room (both the room itself and its location) was great. It was the perfect amount of space. We loved being right on the beach and having a beach view room. The beach chairs our butlers saved for us each day were close and very close to club sandals which was great for bathroom breaks. We got massages one day and had a fabulous experience with the spa as well. We would highly recommend the couples massage on the beach.
The only thing I think we were disappointed in was the food. We had such a great experience with the food in Grenada when we were there 4 years ago and were so looking forward to that same experience at South Coast. I'd say we felt like the food was a C+ or B- over all. Portions were small, quality seemed low. We loved the Jerk Shack for lunch - honestly the best food we had at the resort. But over all our dinners were disappointing. Twice after dinner, Rusty ordered room service because he was still hungry. I don't think any of our dinners left us raving or excited.
We definitely appreciated the heads up about the drive to and from the airport. Our ride to the resort didn't seem so bad - it was a little rougher going back to the airport but definitely do able.
All in all, we still had a good time! Hopefully this helps but let me know if you need or want any further info.
Thank you for all your help!
Just wanted to check back in and let you know the honeymoon was great! We really enjoyed out time at Sandals in Jamaica.
We only took one day off the resort and we took a catamaran out to Floyd's Pelican bar. That was really awesome - would definitely do that again next time we head to Jamaica. We also enjoyed a nice couples massage on the resort and definitely got our fair share of relaxation and eating all the food.
Thank you all for your help in getting us prepared for our trip. Can't wait for our next adventure.
We had an awesome time. The resort was beautiful and the staff was really friendly. The Butler service was great. We were really thankful for the Club Mobay service. We went on a River Tubing Excursion that was fun. The food and drinks (especially the Bob Marley) was fantastic. Thank you for all you did to make our vacation one we will never forget.
