Get in Groups & Have a Great Jamaican Vacation
QUESTION about: GROUP PACKAGE
We are planning a church trip in May 2018 of at least 40 persons, including children. How best can you give us a good price to accommodate everyone
ANSWER: by Kesha Stewart
I am happy to report that there are several places in Jamaica which can facilitate you and your large group vacation. Unfortunately I am not able to give you specific details as to cost, I will give you a few options so that you can do your follow-ups and make a suitable budget- friendly selection.
For example, if your trip takes you to the north coast then you are within reach of the tourism mecca of Montego Bay. Accommodations including all inclusives and small hotels can accommodate a party of (40) forty very comfortably. In cases where the party is small then you may consider options such as a guest house or the bed and breakfast variety, these you may search for online.
All inclusive recommendations include Holiday Inn and SeaGarden Beach Resort in Montego Bay. Incidentally, you may find information about SeaGarden at my-island-jamaica.com .
There is also Toby's, a two (2) Star hotel in the Montego Bay area with reasonable rates and guess what, they also accommodate children. Find Toby's at tobysresorthotel-montegobay.com. I should point out that at some all inclusives children under 12 (with proof) stay at no extra cost. There may even be a complementary nanny service!
On the south side if you pop over in Negril you can hook up with the folks at Funholidaybeachresort@cwjamaica.com and find about their family rates. They have ocean, garden and beach view rooms within Negril's famous white sand stretch.
You may also try to search for "places to stay in St. Elizabeth" if your trip is in central parishes of Jamaica. This will help you to see if Jakes, or Treasure Beach hotels will suit your needs. There is also Idlers Rest in Black River, St. Elizabeth as well as some other small properties.
In the parish of Manchester there are sites such as the Golf View Hotel or the Mandeville Hotel which may be perfect for you. Its very cool and quiet in this area; even though they are located in the town.
If you are seeking to do a really low budget trip there are tertiary institutions with boarding facilities which sometimes allow rental. You can check that out.
Some of these include:
1. Bethlehem Moravian College - Malvern, St. Elizabeth
2. Church Teacher's College- Mandeville, Manchester
3. Sam Sharpe Teacher's College - Montego Bay, St. James
Oh and by the way, it would be great if you let us know how you progress.
