Riu Palace Drinks

I loved that the Riu Palace Montego Bay had drink service around the pools and on the beach!

It felt like at least five times an hour someone would be asking me if I was OK or needed a drink!

First thing in the morning they would circulate with ice water to stay cool and hydrated!

My favorite drink master was Clive!  He was wonderful, funny and smart!  Also a very good listener!  He remembered I was leaving at noon on Saturday and came out to the lobby to say goodbye!

Some of my favorite drinks!

The best part about all of the yummy tropical drinks?

It was all inclusive.  All the drinks at breakfast, lunch, dinner and by the pool and on the beach!  The drink dispenser in the room and the fridge stocked with drinks too.  ALL INCLUDED!!

Arriving at Riu Palace Montego Bay

Left Boston on April 12th on a direct USAir flight to Montego Bay.

Haven’t flown USAir since they stopped flying Boston to Aruba direct.

The flight was full, but it was quick and got me to Jamaica in a little more than four hours.

There was free wifi for the first hour of the flight and I was able to share this photo on social networks!

Going through customs in Montego Bay was an absolute nightmare!  There must’ve been a thousand people in front of me!  YIKES!

But, once I got through to the arrivals hall I saw this!  She took me to the car that took me to the resort!  : )

welcome to me

I hadn’t been to Jamaica in ten years and I forgot hot close Montego Bay was to the airport!  So, I was at the Riu Palace in under twenty minutes and being welcomed with champagne!

I was shown to my room.  So nice!  Loved it!  It was very open!

I changed and was outside on the beach before 4:00.  Which still gave me almost three hours of sun!

Travel day took so much out of me that after buffet dinner I bet I was asleep before 9pm!

Was very happy to be in tropical Montego Bay!!
