I was pleased to see that since we last were on a night pass Feb 2018, there is no more of that nonsense about not being allowed to go to the hot tub when on a day/night pass (we went anyway....it was our meeting spot). Only place off limits on a night pass is the Romping Shop.
1.) The upper rooms on F & G block are at the top of the hill and may be secluded enough to play on the balcony late at night provided you keep it very quiet. 2.) The Resort will try to honor building/room requests but of course no guarantees. 3.) Never been to any of the Couples resorts during the holidays. 4.) There are closed groups on Facebook for each of the Couples resorts.
There are 3-prong duplex electrical outlets right outside the door. We have stayed in 2nd floor premium ocean view rooms with the balcony on our last three trips. I have photographic evidence if you would like to see!
I remember the last State of Emergency.... seeing a few more military vehicles, tour bus just waved through at the checkpoints, no big deal for tourists in otherwords. The media on Canadian news channels was ridiculous, friends and relatives thought we were heading out to a war torn country! According to Jamaican news sources, the increased military presence has NOT resulted in more gang leader arrests but murder rates have decreased .
I have no specific number in my memory, but I was told once and it seemed low by USA standards. And someone else had told me that if the student didn't pay tuition, then the teacher didn't get paid her share. I've confirmed none of this info. The Foundation--my understanding--pays for lots of school supplies too.
How to Pay for Your Vacation (with other people's money)
If you are financially blessed and can pay for your vacation out of your present income, what follows is not for you. BUT If your income, is stretched so thin that vacations are becoming an unaffordable luxury, then please read what follows.
Here is an honest, simple, "almost anybody can do it" way to raise the cash to pay for your vacation and go relax on the beach without increasing your credit card debt. As a matter-of-fact, when you get home you can pay off your credit cards this way too! There are no gimmicks here and the only investment you will make is in yourself.
If you'll try it, I'll pay up to a $100 of your deposit ($200 if your travel partner participates) on your next trip.
