Jan-2014 at Grand Lido, Negril, Jamaica ( 7 days )

First Trip to Grand Lido


This was our first trip to Grand Lido.

We stayed in garden room just pass the cove. Quite a walk to the buffet and lobby.

Transportation to Resort is a long drive from the airport. Almost three hours including waiting for everyone to get on the bus and stops for beer.

The Lobby is smaller with lots of pillars but who uses a lobby, I'm on the beach. Check in was very slow process.

The SPA is small and has noisy air conditioners. Some of the building and grounds need upgrading but that is part of the charm.

The buffet closes during the week and you must eat at one of the A la carte restaurants. I thought this was very strange but quickly grew to like it mainly since the A la carte restaurants had great food and you could always get in last minute.

The room was great except for the water. This trip everyone had cold water showers. The bar Fridge was always stocked with beer, pop and water. Big shower with 4 shower heads. Free everywhere but not sting enough in most areas to use. It's need better repeaters to get good signal in your rooms and some areas.

We walked the main beach twice a day. It's about an hour trip each time.

This is a small resort that grows on you.
