I am almost done with my closet purge and still finding stuff that I have not worn, including four pairs of white jeans. I really do not need four, so I will be passing on a pair or two to my Cousin. This weekend was all about the summertime weather in my neck of the woods. It all started with a windy week and then the 80’s came into play. On Friday evenings I have a standing date with my Mom, usually to her favorite Casino and a warm jacket is always needed inside. I do not know why it is so cold in this casino, but my midnight it is down right frosty. Here is what I wore. . .
The top was $5.00 from the Grand Opening of H&M Last Year in my town.
So many people I meet on vacation say they are tired of the large hotels, but still love Caribbean all-inclusives. What they truly love is the convenience, the comfort and the unlimited drinks. But, they do not want to get up early to get a good spot on the beach or fight with the masses of children at the buffet. They are looking for something a bit different. . . all of the amenities, but delivered in a significantly smaller package than the large all-inclusive you’re used to. Think Boutique Hotel meets Caribbean All-Inclusive. At these hotels, you get all-inclusive convenience but a far more intimate atmosphere. Here are five to try right now all of which have less than 44 rooms:
The Caves, Jamaica
Perhaps the Caribbean’s most prestigious boutique all-inclusive is The Caves. This 12-unit Island Outpost property oozes Jamaican cool, from its locally-sourced cuisine to jerk barbecues to its lovely Blackwell rum bar. This 5-star couples-only accommodations in Negril boasts an Aveda spa, on-site dining and a bar made from 2 limestone grottos. Just 6 miles from Seven Mile Beach, it features cliff-side guest suites and cottages with ocean views. All stylish accommodations offer a separate sitting area, and many offer a private terrace. Guests at The Caves can relax in the Cliffside hot tub or at the Rum Bar. Free bike rentals, guided snorkeling tours and local transportation services are also available. Private Cave dining offering a 5-course meal also available for an additional fee that can be reserved upon check-in. Guests can also visit the 24-hour self-service bar or choose in-room dining options. This property is close enough to Negril Hills Golf Club and Kool Runnings Waterpark. Crocodile Reserve & Bird Sanctuary is 14 miles away.
