We decided to make our travel experience a little different this time around for our followers who want a more relaxed stay-cation feel in a beautifully remote location. We had an amazing stay within the Resort and were able to book absolutely everything here, keep reading for all the insights on this trip.

Transportation

Royalton arranges transportation to and from the airport for all of its guests. You do have the option to arrange private accommodation but the bus drive was roughly an hour and a half with air conditioning and comfortable seating. One night we decided to leave the resort for a night out dancing. Taxis are pretty pricy $15/person one way for nearby vicinities! However if you ask them to wait and bring you back to the resort they will drop the price, we negotiated a cheaper price for this strategy. (Don’t Pay them until you are back at the Resort)

Meals

There is a variety of options to choose from within the resort: Hunter- Steakhouse, Armadillo- Tex-Mex Cuisine, Grazie-Italian, Zen-Teppenyaki, Score-Sports Bar & Lounge, Gourmet Marche- International Cuisine, and lastly a full culinary experience at the Chefs Table. All of these options are a part of your all-inclusive package, so they only money you need to bring is cash for tipping. If you have a large party try calling earlier in the day for reservations. Sometimes it may be hard to seat.

Entertainment

If 24-hour room service, a fully stocked mini bar, and a rain shower isn’t entertainment enough, then no worries, the Royalton has plenty to keep you entertained. The all-inclusive package includes non-motorized water activities such as kayaking, volleyball, workout sessions, etc. There are also cabanas that are not a part of the all-inclusive package, but for $120, you can have the cabana for a full day that comes with alcohol, lounge chairs, and lunch! There is also a swim-up bar in the pool area where you can hang out with friends and family over a cocktail.
At night, there is live entertainment in an open pavilion on the property and the Score-Sports Bar turns into nightlife for the guests at the hotel. There is a DJ, outdoor patio access, pool tables, and dance moves all night long! If you’re like us, you may want to party outside of the resort with the local Jamaicans. During our stay, we found that Thursday is Ladies Night at The Jungle, Friday is all-inclusive (free drinks) at Margaritaville, and Saturday is all-inclusive at The Jungle. Note that they charge more for tourists than they do for locals. Cover cost us around $25 per person.
