Lets begin with eliminating the stereotype that Jamaica is a dangerous place to vacation. I have been going there for 10+ years and this jewel of the Caribbean is able to blend modern comforts with nature’s beauty. Like everywhere else in the world, if you’re traveling to a place without doing some homework, wandering into areas you do not know, or going somewhere alone with a stranger, you may run into trouble. However, as a repeat Jamaica vacationer, I am saddened to hear people say they wont go there because they think it is “dangerous”. Let’s wipe that rumor away.

With its miles of white sandy beaches, Jamaica hits home with couples, singles and family vacationers. Touching down in Montego Bay, where the main airport is located, you get the sense that you are where reggae began…and you can feel the reality of Bob Marley’s song “Don’t worry, about a thing, Cause every little thing is gonna be alright”.

Finding a place to stay in Jamaica may be the source of the scare of coming to this tropical retreat because there is so much to choose from. Jamaica is a big Island with many different beach areas and local cities. There are small villa retreats, hotels and mainly all inclusive resorts. These type of resorts are scattered throughout the island, with the chain SuperClubs being one of the more prominent. SuperClubs may not have invented the concept of the all-inclusive resort, but they have mastered it; and with the name SuperClubs “The Super Inclusive” attached to the resort, security and safety is the resorts’ top priority.

Spots to take note of when planning your Jamaica Vacation:

Runaway Bay. Located 10 miles west of Ocho Rios, Runaway Bay has several destinations. It was the first part of the island seen by Columbus and the site of the first Spanish settlement. Being so far removed from the action that is Ocho Rios, you can stay here and just relax in your resort. With no hoards of crowds descending from cruise ships to be greeted by aggressive vendors, Runaway Bay is a very nice welcome to peace and tranquility. SuperClubs has the perfect resort for Families with children 14 years of age or older. Great for couples and families with teen agers, a memory of a lifetime. Breezes Runaway Bay invites you to escape your worries and take full advantage of their all-inclusive life style. And when they say all-inclusive, they truly mean All-Inclusive! Food, drinks (yes alcohol as well), water sports, and GOLF! There are 5 different restaurants you can choose. Buffets and formal dining is at your fingertips. For your night cap, enjoy a drink at one of their 4 bars. They also offer entertainment; like a Toga Party, Pajama Party and a good old fashion Beach party. Enjoy one of 3 swimming pools, and enjoy one of the greatest inventions ever, the swim-up bar, there really isn’t too much of a reason to exit the water. Motorized water sports are also included, along with bike rentals, snorkeling, sailing and everything nautical. A truly relaxing vacation; where your only worry is what to do next.

  

 

Negril. My personal favorite spot in all of Jamaica is located across parts of two Jamaican parishes, Westmoreland and Hanover. Warning – it is about a 2-3hr drive from Montego Bay or you can take a small plane. It’s a large stretch of beach that hasn’t forgotten why people flock to the Caribbean. Endless sugar white sand beaches and magical sunsets, I have two of the best spots to experience each. The beach is really an easy call, as the famous 7-Mile Beach and White Sand Beach are both located there. Although witnessing the sunset from either of these two spots are prodigious, if you want to wow at this every day occurrence like one of the locals then there is no better place then Rick’s Café. Rent a moped or take a cab and be whisked away to a time where life ran at a different pace. On your way to the top of the hill where Rick’s Café sits, you are greeted by vendors selling their wares from shacks, bringing you back to the old time island feeling. Once there, Rick’s Café offers the most spectacular view of the sun set that mere words can not describe. Along with witnessing the sun setting, this is the place to do your cliff diving…so make sure you have someone to take your moped back! Negril has no high-rises, only low level hotels and villas and the view from each one of them is breathtaking. If you want to feel like one of the rich and famous, but not pay for it, Grand Lido Resort & Spa, another SuperClubs all inclusive would be a top pick. Grand Lido is a 4 ½ star resort that includes everything that you come to expect from a SuperClubs resort. Six amazing restaurants introduce you to some Jamaican flavors along with some good old fashion hot dogs and hamburgers. Two swimming pools, windsurfing, snorkeling and waterskiing! Jet skiing and parasailing (a must) are available from outside vendors. The rooms are villa style, simple elegance. This upscale resort represents what a quality vacation should be; without the price.

If your looking to travel to Negril, but do not want to hear the pitter patter of little feet and want to really let your hair down – then check out Hedonism II. A superior all-inclusive resort, the famous Hedonism label is the front runner to singles and couples who want to party like rock stars. Located on a secluded beach, SuperClubs Hedonism II has everything to make your vacation as action packed or relaxed as you would like. Yes, this is all-inclusive where adults can leave their inhabitation at the door. Mix it up at one of their swimming pools or go scuba diving in their crystal blue-green water. Relax in their sauna, spa (fees may apply) or their fabulous Jacuzzis (yes, some of them are nude.) This shocking, stimulating always sexy never stuffy resort can only be summed up in o
ne word…Hedonism!

I haven’t even mentioned great day trips such as Dunn’s River Falls as there is so much to see in Jamaica. With a very big reputation as being among the leaders in providing an unforgettable vacation for everyone that sets foot in any of their hundreds of locations, SuperClubs will not disappoint.

Trips to Jamaica right now are at their lowest in years. Including the price of airfare, you can witness for yourself the beauty of what Jamaica has to offer in one of SuperClubs all-inclusive resorts starting at package rates of $485 including airfare!
