Well, we are back! :(
We arrived on the 5th August and left on the 19th! We had a fantastic, relaxing, fun 2 weeks.
It really was like going home again! On arrival we were greeted in style and whisked away to the concierge room. We hadn't booked this category and kind of wondered why. Well, we were upgraded to a Honeymoon Suite with concierge service. That was a big bonus to us!
We quickly started noticing some changes that have been going on under the new General Manager, Howard Spittle. There were lots of new umbrellas around the pools and areas that were once bare had new patio tables, chairs and umbrellas. There has been some repainting going on and lots was being done while we were there. There were more activities going on and an inclusion of a Reggae Day with stalls put up on many things about Jamaican culture and food. The night shows and activities have improved as well with more family oriented "game show" type activities.
The nursery/Kids Camp was as good as ever. Our son loves the nannies and the nanny to child ratio is VERY good. Many times my son would have 2/3 nannies to himself! His favourite from last year remained he favourite this year, Pollyanna! I can say enough about this woman. She really knows how to entertain little boys and she was one of the few that my son would obey. I even left him for 3 hours to go off resort and I felt totally comfortable with this.
The restaurants were good. We didn't eat at the buffet much as we don't like buffets. However, the Tex-Mex, Kimonos and the Seville were great. The Seville was exceptional and I got to eat lobster twice as it was the special of the day when we went. It was a six course meal with terrific service.
All the staff were wonderful. There was always a smile and they knew our names. They would ask if all was fine and if we needed anything. If we did, they saw to it and sorted it out.
If anyone has any questions, let me know.
