Aren't you super envious when it's smack in the middle of winter and you see people posting pics in bikinis on a tropical island sippin' pina coladas? I do and it's one of my dreams to travel and do that exact thing and flex on the gram. My bestfriend (@thebeautyof_Fa) and I traveled to Jamaica in July 2016 and stayed at the beautiful Grand Palladium Resort & Spa. We found this deal on Groupon, and although it's no longer there, I'd still look into it cause bomb. I fell in LOVE with this resort, it was absolutely breathtaking. It has 13 restaurants and bars, the LARGESSTTTTT pool in Jamaica, like the whole country (how cool is that?), beachfront, spa, and shuttles for travel excursions.
Although I has an amazing time, the food was not the authentic Jamaican food that I'm used to from my friends' parents or Caribbean spots up north (North NJ/NY. However the buffet was love and had everythingggg i needed. I didn't expect this because its a resort full of visiting tourists and I KNOW the food is legit when you go off site , so still bomb. Fa and I had plans to be adventurous, but honestly, relaxing and enjoying the beautiful scenery and fresh air was just enough. Fa and I found ourselves playing water polo with like 15 other people...mad fun, lol. We actually stayed in the pool our first full day until we were prunes. Even the nightlife was fun! There is a club on the resort called the "Boogie Woogie Club" and every night we were there, DJ was spinnin' and lots of people dancing. There was a wedding party that came after their reception and wedding festivities and since we were all the same age, we were the life of the function...obv, lol. I would definitely recommend escaping the cold weather for a week to get your life, mon.
