After landing at Montego Bay, the resort is still a two-hour drive along windy roads. As you can see, Jamaica drives on the left side of the road.
Arriving at the resort, we were pleased to check into our very spacious room, complete with a balcony that overlooks the beach.
The happy couple.

Dusk on the balcony.
A couple gets photographed on the beach.
Almost time for sunset.
On Tuesday night there was a banquet on the beach featuring lots of well-prepared exotic food.

Helen observes the sunset and I observe Helen. This is on the "clothing optional beach" where I'm not supposed to take pictures, but don't tell anyone. Note that we are fully clothed at this time.
My feet are visible as I lounge, observing the sunset.
A pelican flies by.
The happy couple.
On Wednesday night we had the luxury of dinner served to us on our own balcany.
A lizard. There were a lot of these.
This is Charlie the sea turtle, a resident of the resort who is said to be approximately 100 years old.

One of the best things about this resort was the diverse flora and fauna. Much of the resort is spread out into small secluded terraces separated by stairways.
The mineral pool (one of four pools) as seen through the trees.
Another view of the lovely grounds.
Dinnertime at one of the other restaurants. This one is particularly nice because you get to eat directly adjacent to the beach. If you go at the right time of evening, you get to enjoy the sunset as well.
Another overlook onto the beach. Our room was in the building in the left background of this photo, just off the side of the photo.
Helen ponders her first move on the life-size chessboard.
The grounds right outside our room were setup for the "Starlight Gala" on Friday night. The gala features lots of interesting food.
