Grand Bahia Principe, Jamaica. The pool.

“Mr. Boombastic…What you want is some boombastic romantic fantastic lover….” (Shaggy)

Hello Everyone,

The Grand Bahia Principe has the most amazing pool.  It is the biggest pool, I have ever seen.  It goes around the whole hotel.  The days in Jamaica were spent by the pool, listening to music, having drinks, and my favorite was BINGO. Lol.  Every day, Bingo was played at that pool and every day they gave out prizes to the winner.  In fact, one day the prize was weed. LOL. Yes, you read it correctly; they gave out weed as a prize. WOW mon, Jamaica is nothing like Toronto!! Hahaha

They had so many activities at that pool from water aerobics, to Mr. Jamaica but I will never forget Queen Audrey. Queen Audrey read tea leaves. LOL.  You know, I had to see what this women was all about mon. The queen does readings for 20$ American and I have to say she is very entertaining. Would I recommend a reading? If you want to laugh, yes. LOL.  The queen informed me that a Michael would contact me and not to speak with him. The only Michael I know is dead, and I promise you, I am not speaking with him.  I mean, unless, I learn some “hocus pocus”; Michael is not speaking to me anytime soon. Hahaha. I was also informed that someone who is in love with me, I apparently torture him. LOL. Whoever, you are, I apologize if this is true.  Unless, he brings up the Bruins, I don’t think I torture anyone; at least I don’t do it on purpose. : p

I do have to say that one day; my sister went to get us some KFC.  It is the best chicken I ever tried, mon.  I’m telling you, you have to get KFC when you are in Jamaica.  Little Bianca, who is 18 months, ate that KFC like she never saw food before.  It was finger, licking good. YUMMY!!

I LOVE JAMAICA mon!!!! I cannot wait to go back! WHOOP, WHOOP!!!

Grand Bahia Principe Jamaica

“One Love! What about the one heart? One heart! What about? Let’s get together and feel all right…” (Bob Marley)

COME TO JAMAICA and feel alright….

Hello Everyone!!

WOW.., it feels like it’s been forever since I left Jamaica.  I miss it so much!!  I wanted to share with you all the experience I had at the Grand Bahia Principe.  After, our first night and our amazing New Year’s, we enjoyed another incredible breakfast and sunny day.

My friend at WestJet, Jennifer had given me some amazing tips on the hotel.  She mentioned the jerk shack that was located on the beach.  We ventured out to this shack, and it was really cute.  My only issue was the birds, and the crab that almost followed us back to the room. LOL.  Yes, a crab! I think my friend and I screamed so loud, that Toronto heard the yelling.  The chicken was great and I have to say the hotel has the best ICE TEA EVER!!!

You can have 3 a la carts during your one week stay.  I want to thank the Grand Bahia for giving us 5. LOL.  Our first restaurant was the Mikado, Tapanyaki.  Thank you again, for letting us enjoy this restaurant twice!! This restaurant not only has amazing food but the show the chef gives you is incredible.  I got to eat double the rice, double the chicken and double the beef.  I told you, I LOVE food. Hahaha.  We drank wine, a lot of wine. LOL.  We sang with the group of 12 sitting with us, and we ate like champions.

I was very pleased with our first a la carte experience and I recommend this restaurant and this hotel to you all!!! I will be telling you more of my week at the Grand Bahia in the days to come, so stay tuned…you do NOT want to miss my adventures!!

Jamaica mon. New Year's Eve was incredible!!!!

“Here’s a little song I wrote, you might want to sing it note for note, DON’T WORRY, BE HAPPY…"  (Bob Marley)

Hello Everyone,

I am finally going to tell you about my New Year’s in Jamaica!! LOL.  Ok, so, when we landed after that fantastic flight with WESTJET, we needed to board a bus to take us to the resort.  We stayed in Runaway Bay, the Grand Bahia. 

It took about an hour and a half to get to the resort.  Yes, that long.  There was no traffic, no lights, and no issues on the roads of Montego Bay.  Our driver decided to make a quick stop at Frank’s Bull.  Apparently, that is the place to go too if you want to see “Jesus”.  I wanted to see the bed at the hotel. LOL.  We arrived safely.  Happy, as can be. 

Dec 31st, 2013 started off with sunshine and an amazing breakfast.  I remember, driving my friend crazy, always asking what are we doing tonight? LOL.  “Niki, it's New Year's Eve”.  Oh man, maybe, I saw Jesus.  I think I just kept forgetting I was in paradise.   

We had a great time New Year’s Eve.  We all had dinner together at The Grille on the resort.  We drank champagne and wine and I’m pretty sure we had martinis. LOL. I was just happy that 2014 was starting off in the sun and not in the ice storm that was happening in Toronto.  I LOVE JAMAICA mon. hahaha.  I have to say, everyone in Jamaica says mon at least 1000 times a day.  I’m not kidding.

I loved my first day in Jamaica….the week was incredible.  Once, midnight hit and it was 2014, those Jamaicans knew how to party.  We danced in the square and I remember champagne flying in the air.  Listen, I did not get my hair wet and my shoes were good. 2014 started off right mon!!!

I hope you all had a great New Year !! Until, next time, when I tell you guys all the adventures we encountered in Jamaica mon.  (Yes, every time, they say mon. LOL)  

Remember, to always... “just be yourself, it will eventually pay off…”

The WESTJET way!!! Come to Jamaica mon !!!!!

" ONE LOVE ! ONE HEART ! Let's get together and feel all right..." ( Bob Marley)

Hello Everyone,

Dec 20th 2013, I called WestJet and spoke with the sweetest, kindest rep ever.  Jennifer Powell was an outstanding representative.  Jennifer gave me so much information regarding the trip I planned to Jamaica that was booked for Dec 30th.  She was friendly and made me proud that I booked with West Jet.  I was already excited about going to Jamaica but after speaking with Jennifer, I knew it was going to be a great time.

The day of Dec 30th, I was greeted by Jocelyn at the West Jet counter who was amazing!!!!  She made me feel special and gave me and my friend the VIP seating.  Susanna, the customer service manager also greeted us and honestly, I felt like a queen.  WESTJET YOU rock!!

Once I boarded, I was greeted by the pilots and my favorite flight attendant EVER!!  Priscilla, my sweet, you were incredible.  Thank you, for the great service.  I loved the tablets that we were given to view movies.  I loved the wine girl, you hooked us up!! I loved all the snacks from cookies, to pringles, to pretzels to sandwiches.  By the way everyone, you have to try their Italian sandwich.  It was delicious, being from an Italian family, we have huge standards.  It was a GOOD sandwich!!  That was the best flight I ever took. LOL.  The turbulence is still on my mind but that wine helped me relax. Hahaha.

Demar who also sat with us, enjoyed his flight.  This boy reminded me of a famous rapper.  You are styling my friend. LOL   I hope that you enjoyed your trip because I have to tell you that our trip started off great with WESTJET.  It set the bar high. : p

Thank you, to the WESTJET team! I love you all!!

Stay tuned everyone; I will be telling you all in the weeks to come about how my week went down in Runaway Bay.

Until next time boys and girls, remember to always be “yourself, it will eventually pay off…” OH YAAA….it did for me BIG time on my vacation!!
