Jamaica! Here I come!
It’s been a while since my last vacation without computer, cell phone and worries in 2007. You can read more about my backpack journey in 2007 here. This time, I have a new camera – Canon 7D to take care of my photography need and iPhone to do some quick shots.
We pick Jamaica, because we have never been to that side of the earth other than Cancun. We’ve heard a lot about how beautiful Jamaica is. A friend told me that the Jerk Chicken are really good! So we have to give it a shot. It’s a fairly short 7 day all inclusive vacation in Jamaica. Comparing to the 7 months backpacking trip to China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and China in 2007, this is way to short. However, I have learned a lot that culture difference can makes a huge impact to run a business.
We stay at Gran Bahia Principe Resort. We arrived at the hotel and got a ocean view room, but we have to switch room the top of the hotel due to their mistake on putting us in a very bad smoking room which cause my allergy reaction. We are finally a happy bird that we have a much better room.
You can see the following HD video taken by the Canon 7D. It’s a beautiful hotel on a very beautiful beach.
You can also visit my YouTube channel to see the HD Video on YouTube!
As far as we love the hotel facilities, we really hate the house keeping services and the foods! Their room services are simply just bad. We have to call many times to get the broken TV remote fixed. The coffee maker was never there since day one until we check out. Every time the house keeper clean up our room, they always forget some things. Shampoo, Soap, Towel, and so on. They did sloppy job, period! There are cracks everywhere in the roof or on the wall. Obviously, they don’t really care about building a solid hotel.
I can’t really taste their foods in the restaurants. The only Jamaican food that wins my heart is the Jerk Chicken.
Anyway, there are many pictures that I would like to share. You can see all of them here. I will talk about what I have learned at Jamaica, if I get a chance!
