I tell ya no worries! About a thing….come to Jamaica and feeeel alright!
I had been advised against going alone, but I’m an Aries…I’m headstrong and somewhat fearless!
So… the date came and I went! 🤷🏾♀️
Note: This was my first experience out of the country and alone at that.
When I made it to Sangster, my hotel had a suite located beyond customs. I was greeted with a cold towel and a pink drink full of rum!
Let me note that Sangster is definitely not like the typical American airport you go to…it reminds me of something you’d see on a 1980s Lifetime movie! I’m quite sure they don’t even have air conditioning there but I’m just speculating judging by the bullets of sweat that dropped down my face.
Shortly thereafter the hotel’s bus came and picked me and a few other tourists up.
The ride to the hotel was awesome! I love culture so I was enamored by the views that I saw on my way there.
The bus driver taught us a few words like BOMBA CLOT And when I tell you the white tourists on the bus wore it out, they wore it outttt and said it to the hotel staff when we finally made it although they’d just been told that it was a curse word lol!
After I stepped foot off the van, I expected to go into a typical building and stand at a guest desk to check in.
oh no hunny!!
Everything was outside! We were escorted to an area in the middle of the building that resembled an outside living room. Our names were called, we were handed a couple objects and told welcome! (They usually also give everyone a glass of champagne but oddly it didn’t happen for my group)
The staff member walked off and I was confused! Didn’t I have to check in!? I opened my envelope and there was my room key. I guess when I arrived at the suite in the airport, I was checked in there.
I went inside because I wanted to put my things up.
Now I’ve stayed at a lot of different Hyatts in different cities but this one was immaculate! Granite floors (idk they looked like marble but I’m no expert so I’ll just say granit) and beautiful decorations.
I finally made it to my room and guess what!! Ya girl had been upgraded to a King suite!!
The room was outstanding and I had the most amazing view of the water!
To Be continued…….
More photos and info. on my experience soon!
