I recently was able to attend Click Retreat Conference for Bloggers in Jamaica. The conference was located at the beautiful Hyatt Ziva Rose Hall, an all-inclusive Resort in Montego Bay. The Resort was absolutely gorgeous! The pools, the ocean views, the beach. It was truly Caribbean Vacation heaven! *Be sure to enter the Dream Vacation GIVEAWAY below for a chance to experience a little slice of heaven for yourself!
It was my first time in Jamaica, as well as staying at an all-inclusive resort. I have always been curious about the all-inclusive route for travel, and to be honest I haven’t heard the best reviews, so I really wasn’t sure what to expect. I’m more of a go-go-go type when it comes to vacations. I just love to explore, and immerse myself in local cultures, I love to see new things, so the relaxing all-inclusive resort life was all new to me. And, guess what? I loved it! Maybe this mama really needed a break, but sitting around eating and relaxing couldn’t have been a better option for me right now! I don’t think I have felt that relax in a really, really long time. If ever! This mama needed this!
With my travel plans already being taken care of for me by attending the Click Retreat conference, it was nice to just sit back and enjoy the research someone else had done in order to find a great location and accommodations. Usually that is my job when I travel with my family, so I was thrilled to not have to worry about any of the details, and know I was in good hands! I was also able to easily set up my flight plans from Salt Lake into Montego Bay with Funjet Vacations. I briefly spoke with one of their agents, and we quickly set up my flight plans, and I was good to go!
I had been so busy previous to heading out to the conference, and making all the arrangements and logistics for my kids and family back home, that I didn’t even get a chance to really look into the details of where we were staying for the conference. I didn’t even realize it was going to be an all-inclusive Resort until a few days before.
Honestly, I have heard some mixed reviews on All-inclusive Resorts, so I really wasn’t sure what I was going to expect, but I will say that I was pleasantly surprised! That being said, I don’t believe that all of the all-inclusive Resorts are created equal, so selecting the right all-inclusive is key.
I was lucky to have a great experience my first time at an all inclusive resort. I can imagine I now have a pretty high standard when it comes to Resorts with the Hyatt Ziva Rose Hall Jamaica as my first experience with an All-Inclusive! The grounds were gorgeous, and I was well attended to, and had an amazing time there!
If you have ever thought about going the All-Inclusive Resort Route, then I wanted to share with you a few things that I was pleasantly surprised with!
