      Please note:


      Children are more than welcome to attend both the sunset cruise and wedding ceremony, but we ask that the reception be limited to those 14 and over only.  In order to give parents a few hours off to celebrate, we have hired three members of the resort’s babysitting department to supervise the children as a group from 6-10:30 pm. Drop-off location will be the Game Room, located just off the hotel lobby across from the elevators and near the gift shop.  At 6:30 pm, babysitters will escort the group to dinner at the resort’s main buffet (Fresh).  After dinner, they’ll return to the Game Room for a fun-filled night of movies, Wii, Playstation and games until parents pick them up at 10:30 pm.


      Time zone:

      During the summer months, Jamaica operates on U.S. Central Time, one hour BEHIND Eastern Standard Time (Ex: 10 am in New York=9 am in Jamaica).


      Toll-free #:

      The following # can be used by family and friends back home to call your room at the resort: 866-799-3661.  It is the main reservations # (and the only toll-free # to the resort when calling from the U.S.), so they will need to first ask to be transferred to the Rose Hall operator, who can then connect them to your room.


      A friendly reminder that modern treatment plants make Jamaican water perfectly safe to drink!


      Airport shuttle:

      Please stop by the concierge desk at least 48 hours in advance of your departure to confirm shuttle service to Montego Bay airport.
