Slide at Beaches Boscobel, Ocho Rios

Summer fun in the sun at Beaches Boscobel resort, Ocho Rios, Jamaica

Seaworld Orlando

I had the opportunity to go to Seaworld last Thursday evening.  I was at the conference.  They closed the park early so about 1,000 travel agents and suppliers could experience some of the park and see the new Antarctic Penguin exhibit.  It was awesome!  It is really cold in where the penguins live so unless you're dressed for it you can't stay in for long but worth seeing.

Some of the more adventurous rode Atlantis and Manta.  I chose to stay on the ground and dance to the dj and roam around.

We were then treated to the show Shamu Rocks!!!   It totally rocked.  Everyone was dancing in their seat and singing.  Some who bravely sat below got quite wet but they didn't seem to mind.

It was a great night.  Thank you and Seaworld!

Club Med Sandpiper Bay Resort - Florida

I was invited to stay 3 nights at Club Med Sandpiper Bay in Port St. Lucie Florida. The resort is very nice, not a 4 star but a high 3. It is all-inclusive which is great because there aren't any additional charges unless you want spa treatments or power boats.
This resort is European run so the colors are vibrant , the accommodations aren't luxury but they are comfortable and clean.
Best part about this resort is you don't need a passport to get there if you live in the USA. It was a short 3 hour ride for me and I'm on the opposite coast of Florida.

The food is 4 star. The main dining is buffet style. I had prime rib for lunch one day. It was carved for me so I could request that I wanted well done. The chefs are right there and can accommodate any request you have with no problem. Never had a bad meal. They have such a variety that everyone can find something to eat. They have a small refrigerator next to the soda and coffee machine that has wine bottles you can take to your table. There is also a sit down outside restaurant that serves sandwiches and salad.

There is a show almost nightly put on by the GO's - Gracious Organizers. These kids work hard and are utilized all over the property but they always have a smile and are very helpful. After the show they go into Slice which is the bar but it used for multiple things also. The GO's get on the stage and lead dances for all ages. It was fun to see whole families out there dancing together.

This is a wellness resort. They have an exceptional tennis and golf program with a world class coach who trained Andre Agassi and Monica Selas, just to name two. Also PGA coaches for golf. As well as clubs for children. Children 4 and above can attend the clubs free of charge. 4 months to 3 years old have clubs but they charge $85.00 a day. They provide diapers, formula, food, etc. so you don't have to travel with all that. That alone is worth the price. The staff are only assigned to the kids clubs, they don't work elsewhere on the property. Very clean areas and lots for the kids to do.

The L'Occitane Spa is the only one in the States. They have a Whisper Area outside the spa with a very Zen like atmosphere.
I saw a group of women who played tennis, enjoyed the spa and sat out on their patio just laughing, having a few cocktails and enjoying a girls retreat.

Club Med is international. They are also very travel agent friendly and prefer that clients book through one so sometimes there may be extra perks!

Please let me know if you would like information about any of the 80 worldwide locations.
