The resort we stayed at was Breezes in Runaway Bay, quite the hedonistic experience, and it didn't take long to discover that "all inclusive" really means just that. It was complete, marvelous indulgence.
With the relatively steady tropical climate that Runaway Bay enjoys, there are no doors or windows on any of the buildings, and you can hardly call them that. Two of the restaurants are completely in the open with just a canopy of palm trees overhead. At night, the affect is quite stunning.
Chels in the lobby.
Trying out the bed ...
The view from our balcony.
The terrace is where the buffet meals were served - breakfast, lunch, dinner - and where the nightly entertainment took place. Beautiful view of the ocean ...
Chels in front of the Japanese restaurant, or "Black-anese", as the Jamaican chefs called it :). It was a lot of fun, and they were pretty good with those knives.
The beach was endlessly exquisite, perfect for burying your toes in, or strolling, or just watching the waves, and dreaming ...
One view of this particular pool. There were two main ones, and the other pool had a slight waterfall to divide the depths.

Yah mon ...
Our visit was over Easter weekend, widely and wildly celebrated in Jamaica. I have to think this cute bunny was done purely for the benefit of the tourists.
"Carnival" is an annual celebration normally held for a week around Easter, and includes parades, themed costume competitions, and lots of music, food and drink. The entertainment folks at the resort recruited some of the guests and formed three "teams" for our own Carnival celebration. It was a blast!!
A friend snapped this ... we'll be back soon!
