I just wanted to say THANK YOU, thank you thank you to those who are sticking up for Breezes Trelawny cuz lately with the bad reviews i was getting worried. Unfortunately my excitement has been dimmed somewhat based on this and i needed to look into it before i started dreading my trip...and i personally can't afford to waste my money.
Right now outside its raining cats and dogs and all i want is to be lying on a beach :( I wasnt feeling too enthusiastic so I checked out the 360 virtual tour of BT thats available from the Sunwing site and personally if the pictures are to be believed i honestly am not worried...if i have to use the stairs instead of a broken elevator then it will burn off a bit of the calories from the rum punch, and honestly a suitcase full of bathing suits and flipflops can't be that heavy! (wink) Other then that...i don't really see what the problem is.
Just for interest (and maybe to ease your mind if you're booked there and starting to freak out like i was), visit
Spoiler Alert :
sorry the link wont work. just visit www.sunwing.ca and 'pretend' you're booking a trip to Trelawny - the link will show up eventually.
(hit where its says more info, then the popup will have another link that says 'virtual tour' -click that)
...it actually does a panoramic view of the entire beach and hotel and the different kinds of rooms...they're not that bad in my humble inexperienced and probably naive opinion. :s
What i have decided and thought i'd share, for what its worth:
If the rooms arent that fancy, who cares? They're only to sleep in anyway. As for friendly staff...hey...maybe they have a severe wedgie or just got blasted by the guy ahead of you...we don't know...either way im going to be in Jamaica...in January...if someone is in a bad mood well hey, that's their problem not mine. As for ants...have you seen the earwigs in Ontario this year? Yechhhhh.......i'll take ants anyday.
Life is short, lets enjoy it while we can. :)
okay, stepping off my soapbox now, thanks for reading. (wink)Edited: 28 September 2010, 15:09
