the iberostar rose hall in jamaica looks really nice, but pretty classy? is there a good party environment at the resort? other than discos ( i mean we will go there too, but we would rather be outside)

Barbados has alot of nightlife around the Gap/St Lawrence area and is much further south than Jamaica, which I found too cool even in early March (sea temps.)

CapitolJay, here is a write up I sent my travel agent when I got back. I'm middle aged (50)...but I start my day w/mimosas, enjoy cocktails at the swim up bar and beach, wine with dinner....so I made it through the entertainment til about 11 or 1130....there were still people out... (smile)...

The resort…the rooms are big and clean – the shower is a rain shower plus they have 3 sprays from the sides…I LOVED the shower…also, the toilet was in a separate room, as was the shower and sinks…so we could all be “doing” something – it worked really well.

The pools are fabulous…there were 2 swim ups…yet every pool area had a bar…each building had it’s own pool…..the drinks were top brand, the champagne flowed….what I also loved was the beach – the sand like flour, the water was aqua and clear….it was massive…the seaweed came up 1 day – in the evening, but was gone by morning…..

The Elegance Club – was fabulous…..while they said we’d have a butler, I just used the elegance club people for everything we needed – primarily dinner reservations…they also delivered a newspaper every day – which my Mom loved because she likes to do the crossword (it’s the small things ya know!)….The Elegance Club buildings were right at the end of our building by the beach/pool….they were always stocked with food, coffee, alcohol, computers with free Internet, a concierge, couches to lounge on. This worked out great because when my Mom didn’t want to be on the beach or pool with her girls – she could lounge and read books, relax in the club…it had a great patio and bar too…so really great for all of us.

The grounds are beautiful…the lobby was huge and beautiful…I’ll post some pics on facebook soon….the restaurants are all in the lobby area – they had a steakhouse, Japanese including sushi, French, Italian, and the buffet – and they also had a big restaurant by the beach that we ate lunch in a lot…..the food was average to just above average – nothing was bad……I would say it was a bit better than Sandals…..

The entertainment at night was great too. They had a spectacular Michael Jackson impersonation show…WOW –the guy was great.

We were able to lounge on our room patio bali bed, walk a short distance and be on another lounger/ bali bed by our swim up pool. I suggest getting a room in buildings 1 or 3 (closest to the beach) If you have more questions, please let me know.
