Hi Denny & folks - Just became aware of the closing time restrictions that are currently in effect until late July. Assumably there's no effect on Hedo's bars & dining.. and doesn't affect folks with night passes (?). I wonder how restaurants like Kuyaba, Ivan's 3 Dives, etc... are classified.... are they "clubs" or "taverns" or "tourism enterprises". Anyone have insight? Here's the list for folks' reference:

The temporary business hours are as following:
Clubs and fast food restaurants – from 6:00 a.m. until 12:00 a.m.
Every place required by law to operate under a tavern licence from 7:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m.
Petroleum filling stations from 6:00 a.m. until 11:00 p.m.
Supermarkets, grocery shops, haberdasheries, cook shops and any other place offering goods for sale from 6:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m.
Pharmacies from 6:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m.
Any other public place, except a tourism enterprise, or a tourism accommodation as defined in the Tourist Board Act from 7:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m.

I suspect an email to Lorna Brammer at Hedo could get a pretty credible answer to this inquiry...…………… Just my thought.

I received this information from the resort:

Yes, there are some restrictions based on the Noise Abatement Act and the State of emergency. It now affects Hanover and Westmoreland which Negril falls in that category.

I think that means when they are out of rum. Just a guess.

Rechecking the State of Emergency topic in the Jamaica Chat forum, it said it was for 2 weeks, back on April 30th, but could be extended for up to 3 months.

Respect.

The west end of Jamaica had a state of emergency declared a month or so ago b/c of the rise in crime.

I read the link...this is real. The link includes Negril, and an increase of crime...some serious. With all the bad news coming from the Dominican Republic, Jamaica...does not need to add to this. Just sayin.
