Default Why all inclusive?

Dont take this personal, just my .02
We all have different ideas of vacations, If your doing
all inclusive save your money and go to fla.
Part of going to these beautiful islands is to
expierience their culture, way of life, their Island.
I make a point to eat at different places, Rent a car
for a day and explore. See and do all you can.
Screw jamaica, mostly angry locals, I did explore
and almost got in trouble.
Aruba is beautiful and safe, diving, caves to explore.
Great people and great food, And casinos if your into it.
St. martin is nice, Mexico is a great place and a value.
Been 5 times. Cancun is too commercial for me.
Try ixtapa. Good luck on your search. John

Jamaica is great. I had heard all the horror stories before I left; Donít go anywhere, watch out, donít wear your watch or any jewelry (which I wore anyway), be careful (which I always am regardless), stay at the resort and so on. My first day there I met a local who took us all over and showed us what he called the real Jamaica. Our last night there we all chipped in for food and drink and he and some of his friends cooked for us right on the beach, one of the best meals Iíve ever eaten. I found the Jamaican people to be some of the friendliest people as a group that Iíve ever met. You just have to trust your instincts. Never once felt uncomfortable or like I was getting into a jam. I felt safer in Jamaica than I do in a lot of places in Miami.

The resort (Beaches) was outstanding. Iím a 5 star person and felt right at home in their Honeymoon Suite. I found the Beaches Resort to be much nicer than the Sandals that was down the road. The pools, bars and restaurants were all outstanding. Mind you, Iím not a drinker so I got my monies worth in food (which was excellent) and diving. The diving was mostly all reef diving and the dive masters went out of their way to make all safe and enjoyable. I did 10 dives in 5 days. All free except for the night dive which was $50.00 US. I didnít bring my gear this time but, their stuff was in good shape and the air was fresh.

I went through their local (Miami) agent and she was wonderful to deal with. If youíd like more info or pictures not from a brochure email me at [email protected]

I would recommend it to anyone and I canít wait to go back. Keep in mind that ďBeachesĒ is more of a family resort while ďSandalsĒ is more of a couples resort.

Hedonism! Hedonism! Hedonism!

Went to Hedo III last April and had a great time! Good food, nice resort and some very good views at the nude beach and pool. The nude hot tub after 10:00 pm was a true learning experiance for this Okie!

Two hour bus ride from airport is adventure, to say the least.

If you go there, we expect a full photo vacation review in the 'Uncensored' portion of the board!
