Day three was awesome. So much so that I'm running a bit behind so I will be doing a picture tour today and then I'll be coming back and adding more details a bit later…

We started our day with room service breakfast. It is going to be so hard getting back to reality and not having breakfast in bed. Such a luxury! Then we took a walk throughout the property. Moon Palace Jamaica Grande has so much to see and do, but I was mesmerized by the ocean… after that we headed out on an excursion to a working plantation to learn all about the plants that grow on this beautiful island. We also had snacks and juice throughout the tour.

Back at the Moon Palace Jamaica Grande we enjoyed lunch. I wanted to show how fresh everything is…




For dinner we finally made it to one of the specialty restaurants, Gondola Italian Restaurant. I wish we hadn't waited till our last night to try it. We all agreed we would have gone back here in a heartbeat. The food was delicious!



Eventhough we were full from dinner, Emmy still wanted room service. It's one of her favorite things about staying in hotels. Pools + Room Service= very happy Emmy!


We all fell fast asleep dreaming about our next day in Jamaica…

  1. My favorite thing about staying in a hotel is the vast number of smiles and greetings from staff and employees. It’s like finding friends I didn’t know I had. Your adventure is just wonderful!

  2. It looks like you are having a great time and what a fun tour. I would love to go to Jamaica on vacation.

  3. I have never been to Jamaica but it is on my wish list of places to see. It looks like such a fun destination and I love the Carribean.

  4. Talk about paradise! My hubby served a 2 year church mission in Jamaica and has always wanted to go back! Looks like a total blast.

  5. I have wanted to go to Jamaica since I was just a little girl. I will make it there one day. Your pictures are beautiful. My favorite thing about staying in the hotel is not having to do my regular mom duties like cooking, cleaning and laundry.

  6. The more I see the more jealous I get! 😉 Seriously though, it looks like you guys are having a fabulous time. Jamaica just keeps looking better and better as my next vacation spot. That plantation tour looks like fun!

  7. The food all looks so colorful and delicious. I would love to check out the plantation, but the pool calls to me also.

  8. My son went to Jamaica last year and toured some properties while he was there just for fun. 🙂 I would prefer to tour a plantation. This looks and sounds like a great way to learn more about Jamaica and the people.

  9. Looks like an amazing trip. I would love to go to Jamaica. I think it’s such a beautiful place to visit. All of your photos make me want to go there now.

  10. Wow! What amazing pictures! It looks like an amazing place. I would love to take my family to Jamaica someday. My favorite thing about staying in a hotel is the stuff you get along with it- breakfast, pool, game rooms. Lots of benefits and fun with the family.

  11. I love Jamaica and I have heard Moon Palace is a great resort. I would have loved to go on that plantation tour!

  12. This is my first time seeing your blog and I love it! I could use some luxury family travel! Your images are beautiful too. I would love going on a trip like this.
