Want To Stay In a Pineapple By The Sea?

 

I am a BIG fan of the Karisma resorts in Mexico and Jamaica.  Karisma resorts include the El Dorado Resorts which are adult only and the Azul Resorts which are for everyone.   These are truly luxury all inclusive resorts.  So when they announced that they were going to be creating the Nickelodeon Resort in Punta Cana I was all in.

Beaches Ocho Rios – A Vacation for the Entire Family

In January I was lucky enough to be able to tour this fabulous resort.  I have to say I was truly impressed by all this resort had to offer and the beautiful renovation that was recently being completed. Where Sandals resorts are geared towards couples, the Beaches resorts are “for everyone” as they like to say.  But really it is families that make up the majority of guests as these resorts.

Getting There – When going to Beaches Ocho Rios you will fly in to Montego Bay airport. It is a very busy airport, but easy to navigate. When staying at Beaches you are directed to the exclusive Sandals Lounge at the airport.  You will check in and relax while you wait for your transportation to the resort. The lounge is very comfortable and offers complimentary food and beverages.  You can even get a nice Red Stripe beer to start off your vacation.

Transportation – To get to Beaches in Ocho Rios you will be taking a luxury bus.  It will be about a 1 1/2 hour ride to the resort, it really depends on the traffic.  It is a very scenic ride and our driver was great about pointing out all we should be seeing along the way. We also stopped for a bathroom break as well as a snack.  I had to get some authentic Jerk chicken, yummy.
