Photo Contest Entry #42 - JA 2016

We (6 family members) went to Jamaica in November 2016 for a holiday and also to celebrate our parents 60th Wedding Anniversary.

We stayed at a Hotel called the “Grand Bahia Principe” in Runaway Bay, St. Ann. This was our fourth visit to this hotel and on this occasion we were upgraded to the Luxury side of the hotel and we were so excited.

Whilst there my sister in law, Ruth, organised a little surprise for our parents anniversary which took place in the hotel room which was decorated so beautifully.

Our parents were very impressed, not only with the décor but the hotel itself and the way the staff were so friendly and made you feel right at home.

Then she started to tell us stories of long ago and how way back then only the ‘elite’ would attend such hotels.

We had such a wonderful time whilst we were out there – we hired a vehicle and used the toll roll quite a bit to go and visit our family and friends in Kingston and Clarendon.

We also visited Rose Hall – our parents were very impressed by the way the stories were told.

I must say though, the toll road is quite expensive from Ocho Rios through to Clarendon – cannot see ordinary Jamaicans using it much unless the price goes down!

Overall, and as you have read, this was our fourth time at the same hotel – we enjoyed it to the max and always come back to England depressed.

God's willing we will visit again next year but maybe try a different hotel for a change.
I must say, I would strongly recommend the Grand Bahia in St Ann any day – it was great!

Hope to see you next year JA!!
