My Philippines Group 134 (1978-1980) has been having reunions every other summer in the Caribbean, accompanied by children (some now in their 3rd decade some still in middle school) and spouses. July 10-17, 2014 we returned to the Grand Pineapple, a Beaches resort in Negril, Jamaica. We don't look for fancy, luxury accommodations. What we want is a smallish, affordable resort that facilitates togetherness and conversation. For that, I love GP and would return in a heart beat. I think they up graded us. My kids all wound up in beach side cottages which were great. My partner and I were in a garden side cottage in the most comfortable bed I have slept in since our first trip reunion in 2006. The grounds were kept in immaculate shape. The roaming peacocks were much appreciated. The food was really good, varied and very healthy choices with plenty of sweets available. The staff was cheerful, courteous and helpful. The water served in the bar and restaurant seems to have been very safe. Our reunions have also been held in Akumal and Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, and Punta Cana, DR. GP is bar none my favorite.
