They will provide a place for changing. Just ask when you get there. I recommend joe cool. He has a web site. You can even look him up on TA. He is highly recommended by many TA members.

We also used Joe Cool Taxi and Tours, and highly recommend!

We went from SWH to SN, but we just changed in the bathroom. We wore swimsuits and cover ups there, and changed out of the wet swimsuits for the ride back. We didn't stay for dinner, but unless you need to do your hair or something, the bathroom should be fine. The bathrooms to the left of the lobby at SWH are really nice, there's hardly anyone in them, and there's lots of space.

Side note: if we wear casual clothes, can we eat at any place there?

We are tossing around idea of hiring a driver to take us around Jamaica, like side places, not tourist, ideas on where to go.

I don't know the cost of a driver for a round trip from SN to SWH, but hopefully RandBtravel will chime in as he has done the ride a few times.

While in the Whitehouse area, I would highly recommend taking a boat ride on the Black River where you can see crocs up close and personal, visit YS Falls (yes it does have tourists but not as busy as Dunns River Falls) and for something really unique, arrange a boat trip to Floyds Pelican Bar. This is a bar built out of drift wood and situated on a sandbar in the ocean. If you go when they open in the morning, you will avoid some of the larger organized excursions, and as well might have the opportunity to see dolphins in the wild on the boat trip!

At lunch time you can pretty much wear bathingsuits and cover-ups to the restaurants at SWH. At dinner, all except Eleanors allow resort casual wear. Having said that....the ambiance of some of the restaurants might make you wish you had worn something nicer than a t-shirt. More often than not, my hubby always wears a collared polo or golf shirt and nice dress shorts to the indoor restaurants which are listed as resort casual.

TP55's tour ideas are very good. We loved YS Falls and the Pelican. Other have mentioned Joe Cool, he is very good and can to the SN to SWH trip and certainly can help plan a day touring a part of Jamaica. Send him an e-mail and request a quote for your exact trip. Generally you can have him for the full day and do whatever time allows, which is about $125 for the full day for two people. If I recall right, the SN to SWH trip would be about $80 RT for two.

We don't mind dressing up a little for our great dinners at SWH, as is the case with most SWH guests.
