2017 - Jamaica "Feel The Vibe" FAM
I have recently returned from a Jamaica “Feel The Vibe” Fam tour hosted by the Jamaica Tourist Board.
My host hotel was Hyatt Ziva/Zilara and we visited a total of five resorts; Hyatt Ziva/Zilara, Iberostar Rose Hall Suites (Beach, Suites, and Grand), Sandals Montego Bay, Royalton Negril (Hideaway and Grand Lido) and Sunset at The Palms. We also made stops at Ricks Café (jumped off the cliff), a new water/beach park called Grand Luxe Beach Park in Negril, Pier 1 and Margaretville and Hard Rock Cafe.
I must say the Hyatt Ziva/Zilara was my favorite! Great resort with ample pool space, rooms were very spacious and not too much of a chain hotel feel. Each floor was decorated slightly different. Zilara’s lobby was enclosed and with high ceilings and warm, comfy couches as you enter the lobby where Ziva’s was open air, vaulted ceilings and the view from the lobby to pool. There is a hallway that is guarded between the Ziva and Zilara for guests near the Spa. Pre-check in available at the airport.
This resort provides several activities for the active traveler, two gyms with ample equipment, spin classes, yoga classes on the beach and all 24/7. The beach area is quite nice and beaches are smaller and more intimate with beach chairs, Palapas and Bali beds and pool cabanas. Rock Gettys prevent the surf from coming into the beach. The food was really good everywhere and they also offer a Cigar bar, Bakery with sweets, ice cream and pastries, coffee bar and Jerk Hut. And the restaurants do not require reservations.
I would love to assist you with your Jamaican adventure!
