Reviews for Jamaica
Jamaica is a lovely place!! dont listen to people when they say you can't go out the hotel with out security as it is not true!! it is place to see and not to be missed. With lovely food and good weather.
We had no problems at all, great experience, people were lovely, i can't wait to go back!
Wow, it's a bit of an eye opener visiting Jamaica. It's a great place, but a bit scary at times, you get security to go with you into the towns, don't go without them as it's kind of dodgy!
Didn't really leave the hotel at all, as we were advised not too. But the weather was great and the beaches were lovely.
