Need some recommendation/advice for girls getaway

Hi -

We are a group of 4-6 gals pals all in our early 50s who are finally going to have a girls getaway (no hubbies or kids) for 4-5 nights in late January. We haven't decided where to go yet but are interested in sun, warm temps, nice beach, great pool(s) and probably an all-inclusive. We enjoy some drinks by the pool but have no interest in a wild and crazy place like Hedonism (is that even still open). None of us have been to Jamaica and we'll be flying in from Alaska, Colo., NY and DC.

SO here's where I need the help - which part of Jamaica might be best and more specific what are some good resorts that fit our needs. No real budget but probably don't want to spend $400+/day per person. Definitely don't want a budget place.

Thanks for helping.

Forgot a couple of things - would like to avoid a long transfer once we arrive in Jamaica (esp me since I have to travel so far); don't want a beach where we are harassed by local vendors; don't want to rent a car. I hope this info helps.

Check out the Iberostar Grand. Short transfer, nice beach, nice pools, top shelf booze, great room(all the rooms are suites, great food, great staff, and a good mix of guest are usually there.

To pick a section of Jamaica to visit see the following

tripadvisor.com/Travel-g147309-c165100/Jamai…

"No real budget but probably don't want to spend $400+/day per person."

There are few hotels that have only rooms above $US400 per day. Your budget will find hotels in all parts of the island.

"interested in sun, warm temps, nice beach, great pool(s) and probably an all-inclusive."

Jamaica has many hotels that meet all of these requirements (probably over 50, more if you remove the all inclusive requirement).

"We enjoy some drinks by the pool"

There are several hundred in Jamaica that meets this requirement. You need to specify more requirements. See the following to identify more requirements that apply to you.

"have no interest in a wild and crazy place like Hedonism (is that even still open)."

Yes Hedonism II is still open and as crazy as ever.
