What are they tallking about? GBP

I am currently sitting on the lobby deck having a juice in paradise.

Everything about our trip so far has been amazing.

Check in was so smooth, we were treated like royalty.

We got here at around 4:00 pm yesterday and headed straight to Pisces the snack bar. I had some nachos, hot dogs and stewed beef. Hubby had stewed beef and curried conch fish which he is still praising.

Then we headed to the beach and is was beautiful. You do have to walk a bit to get areas with no rocks.

Buffets have everything but there is truth to the lack of jamaican food.

Some truths:

-there are cats but they are harmless and cute.

-we have yet to encounter any bugs including mosquitoes.

-the staff are amazing and so helpful.

-there are tons of stairs but tthey do have working elevators.

Any questions? I will check back later

Mellybelly007, so happy to see and hear all of your positive remarks and that everything is going great so far. Even happier to hear "no bugs"...mosquitoes weren't nearly as much of a concern as the frequent reports about cockroaches recently. GBP was our like own little piece of Paradise on our first trip there, and we want to be sure to recapture that when we return with our friends on their first trip to Jamaica, so your comments have reinforced our decision to return. Have a blast and look forward to updates as your vacation progresses. Have a few "virgin" dacquiris for me on the beach :)

Glad all the worry before the trip was for nothing. Thus far, how has this trip compared to your trip to Breezes Runaway Bay ? Does it seem real crowded, and any problems with lines ? Many teenagers ? Is the beach area without rocks very swimmable, and how deep ? Have a great trip !

Hey peeps!!! Just having a little down time right now and will answer your questions!!!

Kc416- tonight the buffet was mainly Jamaican cuisine. In general for breakfast they have one or two meat dishes, one fish, dimpling, steamed veggie, cornmeal porrige. For example, this morning hubby has liver with dumpling and boiled yam and fried plantain. The jerk shack on the beach has amazing jerk chicken and pork. Tonight at the buffet they had jerk pork, curry goat, curry conch, escovitch fish, steamed Saltfish, manual water. Lastnight they has stewed peas and a few other items. Oh yeah they had oxtail tonight too.

We like it MUCH more than breezes last year. It is so much bigger, grander, luxurious and deluxe all-inclusive.

The best beach are is to the left of the snack bar towards the middle. All clear and no rocks. We has loungers underneath an almond tree today and it was heaven.

Cuddly- internet is free in the lobby and lobby deck where the lobby bar is.

Any other questions just let me know!!!
