Highlights of my Jamaica Family Vacation
Hope you are well.
My family and I celebrated my mom’s 85th Birthday (late due to Covid and rescheduling our trip twice) in Jamaica in a fully staffed villa. We loved not having to cook and clean- what a treat! It was special to be able to walk right out in a stunning setting to spend the day relaxing, reading, swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, sailing, and having family bonding time. Happy hour snacks and cocktails were a hit sitting in the verandah and the delicious food Arlene our Chef cooked every day. Odion, our Butler was sweet and made sure our tables were set nicely with pretty napkin folds. Riccardo, who did the gardening, was great and helped us get the Hobie Cat ready to take out. We also had a laundress that cleaned clothes as needed and the rooms we stayed in. Our staff did a great job of decorating the villa with balloons and Happy Birthday banners to surprise mom when she walked in.
Our highlights of the trip were:
-The beautiful view
-The food and service
-Learning how to sail the Hobie Cat
-Kayaking and paddle boarding
-Our private catamaran sail
We thought having mom's birthday celebration on a boat would be a memorable way to spend the day. Our crew on the Catamaran had great energy and were so much fun! My mom and dad are scared of the water as they don’t know how to swim and yet they were both dancing on the boat! We stopped to snorkel and saw some cool coral and little fish. My full-face snorkel mask was a great buy- I didn't have to fix my mask once in 45 minutes as no water came in, which was heaven for me. We visited Half Moon Bay one day to visit Daniele’s colleagues (as he helped to open Delmare, their Italian restaurant there.) I enjoyed meeting Claudio, the Chef at Delmare and doing a site tour of the property. They have different accommodations spread out- villas, beachfront rooms and cottages. They have an infinity pool, tennis court, a children’s village, bicycle riding, horseback riding and more.
