Alex Smith, along with her husband, traveled to one of our favorite resorts, Sandals Whitehouse, at the end of July. Here is a little about their trip in her own words:
Where did you travel?
We traveled to Sandals Whitehouse, a couples-only resort on the south coast of Jamaica.
What dates where you there?
We arrived on July 27th and came back on August 1st.
How long did it take you to get there?
We flew from Atlanta and it was an easy, non-stop, 2 hour flight. Once we got to Jamaica, we took Sandals transportation to the resort. It took us an hour and a half, but the whole way we got to see Jamaican life (restaurants, fruit stands, churches, houses, the beautiful mountains, and of course, the amazing water.)
Have you been there before?
I had not been to this resort, but was really looking forward to it since I have sent several clients and they always come back with great reviews.
Tell a little about the resort.
I can’t rave about the property enough. It sits on a 2 mile private beach that is in a u-shape, so you always feel like one of the only people out there. Also, there are 3 really good size pools so, none of the pools ever feels crowded.
All of the Club level rooms and higher have free wifi and room service and of the concierge staff was always happy to help you.
There are 3 villages at this resort, French, Dutch, and Italian, and all of them are beachfront (every room has a spectacular view). They have actually updated the interior of the French village with grays and blues (and it looks awesome!) and are hoping to have the other 2 villages updated by the end of 2014.
What was your favorite part?
My favorite part was the serine, private beach that made it so easy to lounge the day away. But if you were to ask my husband his favorite part, it would be the scuba diving (which is free if you are already certified, or you could get certified for around $80 and scuba for free the rest of your trip (and for up to 18 months after), which they go out twice a day.) We also got to kayak, paddle board, and snorkel, and it was all included!! Water skiing, wake boarding, knee-boarding, the hobie-cats, glass-bottom boat, and catamaran is part of the all-inclusive resort! That means you can do all of this for free!!!
Anything else you want to add?
The entertainment staff is so awesome at Sandals Whitehouse! They are there from bright and early, until everything closes down around 2AM. They really made everything so fun!
