The hotel i stayed in was club ambiance in runaway bay in jamaica. it is the perfect place and true paradise. It is a small cosy hotel with 90 rooms, adults only all inclusive.. the staff are fabulous and make sure you have a good time be it to join in with activities, relax, chat or however you want to spend your holiday..
The hotel is kept spotless.. there are a variety of activities in the day that you can join in with if you want, no pressure though. The resident band plays nightly with entertainment brought in from outside too.. Disco is nightly except once a week when there is karaoke. There is something for everyone and all ages, over 18s..
Runaway bay is a quiet location but close enough to ocho rios to venture to by cab.. or you are close to lots of places of interest.. Locally near to some night life to for those who want to venture off resort at night.
Next door to club ambiance is a sportsbar which is quite popular with locals and tourists.. there are several other bars along from here.
within 10 minute walk there is the local supermarket and bakery and few other shops.. and a beach not much further..
what to see ..
Dunns river falls, dolphin cove, mystic mountain, nine mile, luminous lagoon, firefly, green grotto caves, coyaba gardens, kingston, blue mountains, negril beach, cliff divers at ricks cafe, YS falls, black river, appleton rum factory, pelican bar, blue lagoon.. some of these are close and some further afield
the list could go on but these are some of the more famous places non tourist things.. visit a school, church, watch game of local sport like cricket or football, have game of dominoes with the locals. all to get into the cultural spirit of jamaica
Food.. Traditional food is great.. jerk food, ackee and saltfish, red snapper, yams, caliloo, fruit is great too.. lots to try and do sample them
