Jamaica Travel Diary

 

BATHING SUIT: Pretty Little Thing Top & Bottom │SUNNIES: Karen Walker

Where We Stayed: 

We stayed at the Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall in Montego Bay.

It is an adults only, all inclusive resort and we LOVED it. We did have a slight hiccup when traveling. I (mistakenly) booked our flight into Kingston not realizing that Kingston and Montego Bay are almost 3 hours apart. OOPs. But, it ended up really working out well because we got to see how pretty inland Jamaica is.

If you want to fly directly to Montego Bay like a normal person (LOL), there is a direct flight from Raleigh to Montego Bay. We do want to go back to Jamaica and will 100% take advantage of the direct flight.

Our Room:

It was sort of hard to decide what kind of room we wanted. The smaller rooms have swim up pools which I was in love with (see below). But, ultimately, we went with one of the suites. The suites do come with a round the clock butler which is SO nice. We also had a huge balcony that looked right out on the ocean.

The Spa:

I had a massage right on the ocean and it was SO relaxing. Highly, highly recommend. Inside the spa, there is a sauna, a cold pool and a Jacuzzi. The Jacuzzi looks right out on the ocean and I probably could have stayed their all day.

Dining:

The resort is all inclusive, so there are 10 restaurants on the property. We ate at the Italian restaurant, the Brazilian steakhouse and the French restaurant. They were all really good. The Italian restaurant was probably our favorite of the 3.

Excursions/ Activities:

We never left the resort once! There was actually that much to do. There are tons of water sports – kayaking, paddle boarding, beach volleyball, snorkeling… There’s also a beautiful golf course if that’s your thing. I personally couldn’t tell you a single thing about it.

Every day they have fun, different things to do. On my birthday, they had a HUGE foam party. It was SUPER fun and ridiculous at the same time. LOL, see above.

We loved Jamaica!

Such an easy, fun trip. We did stay at the adults only resort.. BUT there are two sides to the Hyatt and the other side is family friendly. So, if you are traveling with kids, this resort really has something for everyone. Highly recommend!
