Montego Bay: Family Vacation


Our trip to Jamaica last weekend was one for the books especially since it involved lots of family time and relaxing by the pool and beach with frozen cocktails. 
 

We stayed at the Iberostar Rose Hall Beach all-inclusive resort in Montego Bay which exceeded my expectations in terms of the restaurants, entertainment, and overall amenities. Plus it's a gorgeous location for a destination wedding which was the purpose of our trip.


K and I booked a standard room and were so surprised to see this beautiful view from our balcony, considering most resorts charge an upgrade fee for an ocean-facing view.

Like one should do on vacation, I traded technology and my first-world worries for relaxing, exploring, indulging, and luckily spending time with family so I'll let the pictures do the talking from here.

All I can say now is "Take me back!!!"

  16. Gorgeous photos! That looks like such a fun trip - and that slide into the ocean picture got me super giddy. The hubs and I just booked a trip to Mallorca and have been looking at hotels - Iberostar is really big there so I'll have to take another look at it since you had a good experience.
