We were in need of a break from reality. The everyday hustle and bustle of our nation’s capital, the sometimes lengthy commutes and vigorous corporate hustle had us eagerly anticipating a vacation…a quick getaway to relax, regroup and recoup to continue on our journey to the top. *hehehe* I’m a bit of a control freak, so I thoroughly enjoy taking the reigns and mapping out our excursions. I’m convinced HE loves it as just as much, since he always has a huge smile from ear to ear once we reach our final destination…our living quarters that I’ve arranged for the next 4-5 days.
We decided to revisit one of our favorite islands; the place where its intriguing and rich culture, laid back, relaxing vibes and native people embrace us like we are home. I’m convinced that Jamaica will one day be our second home.
We visited Montego Bay a couple of years back and were lured back in by the Iberostar Grand Rose Hall Resort, a luxury resort located in the Rose Hall area of the island. We always tend to venture outside of any resort we visit to avoid the isolation due to the natural distance between the way you see a place and the lives of the people there. When I travel I like to get a good feel of the culture, the food, and experience and connect with the native people. Well, unfortunately that did not happen on this particular trip to Jamaica. We decided to take in all that this amazing resort had to offer. This is, hands down, one of my favorite resorts in the area. The resort grounds were beautiful, the beach and pool were awesome, the hotel staff were attentive and professional, and the food was AMAZING! Take a peek below to get a better idea as to why it tops my list of “Favorite Resorts”… 🙂
Everyting is irie Mon!!
