Was recommended this Hotel by customer services at Montego Bay Airport, yes we are on a budget but for $49 US a night you could so much better. We got to see 2 rooms before checking in, felt like I went back to the 70's and the smile of weed was so bad we had to ask if there was any other rooms which we would pay for $55 US a night. Check for bed bugs and had an okay night sleep, with a car alarm going off all night and the windows were boarded up. Had breakfast the next morning which wasn't bad. I know Gloriana was an icon to Jamaica, but this hotel needs a lot of work.

... no sunscreen and now they are red raw. It's funny to watch. Fletch and Brodie have found 2 american boys and have been playing with them. Tomorrow we head off to LA and it's going to be another big travelling day. I think we will get to the hotel at around 3am Jamaican time so we are going to be stuffed, then we need to get up early and spend the whole day at Disneyland. After 6 days of lounging around, our batteries are recharged and we'll be ready for ...
Woke up Friday to another glorious day. I think we've only had 1 or 2 rainy days all trip. Over indulged at breakfast and lunch, will have to start eating smaller meals. Fletch and I took a snorkelling trip out to the reef. It was ok and we saw some tropical fish but it was nowhere near as good as Vanuatu. Spent the afternoon drinking cocktails in the pool or on the lazy river. That night we went to the posh Italian restaurant though we were all ...
... boys went up and down the slides. Whenever you want a drink you just go the bar (there's even a swim-up bar) and order whatever you want. It's great not having to worry about money or the cost of everything for a change. If you're hungry you can order from the snack menu. The boys loved getting their mocktails, just got to remember not mix them up with our drinks! We've been lucky with the weather as we are in the middle of hurricane season and so far it's sunny ...
... action and went Zip-Lining. Wow, that was fun!
Easter Monday night there was a Dancehall Sound Clash Battle in town, Dancehall DJs from various countries play against each other. The only strange thing was that the audience was supporting with Vuvuzelas, those horribly loud trompets which became famous in the football world cup in South Africa, all combined it sounds like a huge vespiary.
Oh and I ...
... we were laying out enjoying basking in the sun we discussed heading over to the bar for some drinks. As we were in the middle of the discussion, a family staying at the resort whom were from Canada, piped in and recommended some of the better drinks being offered, so we took their advice and got some delicious (and strong) umbrella drinks. The resort clearly didn't skimp out on the liquor at this all inclusive resort. This made for ...
