|We are headed to the Breezes Trelawny in March.Are there any must bring items that come to mind?Is the ketchup there any good?Do they have relish?I understand they have coffee-makers in the rooms, do they supply the coffee?
Any help or suggestions from people who have been here, would be a definite plus!
|I agree it’s slow. I normally use the Dominican portion of Debbie’s and there is a wealth of info and people posting replies.I don’t know if it’s just that people who go to Jamaica don’t care, or could it be that for every 100 people that go to the Dominican, there is only 1 that goes to Jamaica.

MG: I think you hit the nail right on the head when you stated "every 100 people that go to the Dominican, there is only 1 that goes to Jamaica." You could fill in that last word with any other place (other than Cuba). I have found the same thing, even on other forums – if you don’t go where ‘they’ go – you are pretty well on your own. Sad, but true.

Is the ketchup there any good? my hubby eats heinz and he wasn’t impressed with there ketchup. i don’t eat enough of it to worry about.
Do they have relish? I believe they did, but i didn’t eat any hamburger or hotdogs
I didn’t take any shampoo or conditioner definately next time i will. they had a dispenser on the wall for shampoo and body wash, i’m sure it was the same thing…hehe.TONS of suntan lotion…it’s hot hot hot.!!I brought everything i could think of medicine wise, we travelled with our 5 & 7 yr olds. Tylenol & aloe were what i used most. I also took pepto bismal. They provide beach towels, and you can get fresh ones whenever you want.Also guys walk around all the time taking your picture, then they will try to sell them to you. a complete rip off if you ask me.you will definately get hasseled if you are on the beach. we only went 1 x. i don’t really enjoy beaches, and loved sitting at the pools!! there are also some venders that set up behind the beach bar and grill. They are all willing to haggle. we went there last night with about $20, and there were 3 tables set up, we said up front we were buying something from everyone, they were happy with that.if you are going to get your hair braided i would go off the resort to the village. we didn’t and got ripped off at the salon….That’s all i can think of for now.
|you mentioned it was hot hot hot… Is it hotter there than other places such as Cuba or the DR in your opinion?It seems alot of people comment about how hot it is there, and easy to burn etc. I haven’t been anywhere but the D.R so trying to compare….
Sucks to hear about the ketchup….lol. I have it with breakfast, lunch and supper…..
|I haven’t been to cuba or DR in 20 years. i was younger and don’t remember what it was like. We did have to stop in Punta Cana on our way home yesturday (which made a 7 hour flight…we were with sunwing) we had to get off the plane and it was REALLY windy…and i beleive it was a few degrees cooler, but still warm.yes you can burn very easily in Jamiaca, we spent alot of time in the pool, so we had to be sure to keep reapply lotion.during the week there was barely anyone there, maybe 10 families…. but some thursday and friday it got busier with the locals. they will LOAD their plate up with the food, so on those days try to be there when lunch and dinner start. I would also recommend picking up any desserts you want at the same time you get your food as they go quickly.Everyone there was so friendly and happy.
we were going to be in a mountain view room, but when our flight got changed and we got in 12 hours earlier our room wasn’t ready and check in isn’t til 3 (we were there at noon) so they upgraded us right away to ocean view room!!
|Yes, they had ketchup and my kids did not complain about it, so it must have been okay. Not sure about the relish-sorry. The beach grill is really great and they have condiments out. I didn’t notice anything "missing". The salt shakers will all plugged due to the humidity so it might be worthwhile to pack a cheapie set if you’re a salt-aholic. There are coffee makers and filter packs in the rooms (or were in October) but we just went down to the dining room very early and filled up our bubba mugs.
We loved the beach. Just say no to the vendors if they try to sell you anything. seems a shame to avoid it, it’s a beautiful beach. We really liked this resort. Have fun/
|thanks for the info and tips..sounds about the same as most Bahia’s…..so I am not too worried. It’s not long now and then I will have a firsthand report of it……..|
|Got back a week ago….the resort is fantastic, especially for kids. Our 8 yr old had the time of his life. Our room was "dated" but very clean. There was coffee maker in the room, as well as coffee.The snack bar at the pool was great, and yes they had relish, as well as ketchup & mustard. Young lad said it was the bed ketchup he ever had. There was also peanut butter at the buffet at breakfast (peanut butter is a must have when we travel with the young one).I would return to Breezes Trelawney in a heartbeat. It is a great resort for kids, and the food was good and plentiful.
Monctonguy any questions – fire away
|Hi mrs gambitt,We are leaving on feb 28, first trip to the Caribbean for our teenagers we are very excited. Got a couple of questions.What size is the room safe? can you fit a regular size laptop in it?Wanted to bring it to be able to down load photos and recharge Ipods.Would you have a document from the resort with a fax # on it?I would like to make a request directly to the resort for connecting rooms even though my travel agent did so.Thank you
|Hi nibabus,The safe is only big enough to hold passports and wallets. My husband took his laptop and just left it on the desk, had no issues with it at all.
Sorry, I don’t have a fax # for the resort.
|Hi kevswick and mrsgambitt.Sunfish changed to Breezes in 01/11/09, Nov, 11, 2009, to support the new Cruise Line port between MoBay and Falmouth along with all the upgrades to Burwood Beach for tourist stuff still in the "works".As for, "ketchup and relish", typical brands we’d find at home in Ca, Eng, or US. Might not taste the absolutely the same, but they have them with a lot more choices that you can use. Breakfast is pretty good, with a wide assortment of choices along with everything throughout the day.I’m not a Starfish (Breezes) type, trying to sell a bad thing. In mid-March 2010 I will there for my 5th tim, if that says anything….. Hope to see either of you there..btw: fax is (876) 518-6354|
