Island Time

Recommended Posts

The first time I went to Jamaica it was an adjustment getting used to their relaxed atmosphere, but once I did I loved it! It felt like a real vacation. But I think my parents will have a hard time, they are always EARLY for everything!!!!

The Rock House looks amazing. One of my friends brothers got married there and they absolutely LOVED it! Only downside is that they don't allow kids under 12 - we were looking at the Rock House but this was a deal breaker for us sad.gif

So true - it does feel so much more like a vacation when you can lounge and not be rushed! I have memories of going on vacation when my brother and I were much younger, but my brother actually fell asleep with his head on the table because it took so long for our dinner to arrive at a restaurant in St. Marteen, lol. Definitely different than eating at restaurants here in Chicago when the wait staff is trying to turn the tables around as quickly as they can.

LOL! I am from NY but my relatives are Jamaican, and we always joke about "CPT" carribean people time because the whole carribean is on island time! So we would tell them 5:00 EST/4:30 CPT... The phrase is "me soon come" meaning I will get there when I get there and thats perfectly okay down there, but my neurotic NY guests will have a hard time coping with this! Something about NY/Long Island makes people psycho and impatient if they have to wait, they want everything right here and right now. If you are saying the Mexicans are the same that will be hilarious! Even going to the midwest or California with NY-ers is an adjustment so it will be interesting to see how they cope with Mexico time, lol!!!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
