Fourth Deaf Red Hatters Tour
All-inclusive Sandals Whitehouse, Jamaica

April 2-9, 2016

The Sunshine Red Hat Gals of Palm Beach, Florida decided to sponsor a trip for the deaf Red Hatters to the all-inclusive resort Sandals Whitehouse in Jamaica. Sandals are all-inclusive resorts on different islands in the Caribbean. Sandals is well known for its service quality, beautiful resorts and friendliness. Sandals Whitehouse is an all-beachfront tropical resort located along a two-mile stretch of beach on the southwest coast of Jamaica. Here you can watch both the sunrise and sunset each day. Luxurious accommodation is provided in the French, Italian and Dutch Villages. The Grand Piazza is lined with bistros, restaurants, cafes and bars. The resort features three pools, including Jamaica's largest.

After arriving at the airport in Montego Bay, we hopped on the complimentary shuttle to Whitehouse. Our scenic ride to the resort followed the north-south route crossing the island. Blue skies, sunshine and lush tropical growth provided a nice welcome. After our arrival at the resort where we were greeted by the friendly staff members, we settled into our rooms and had time to explore the resort. The resort has a beautiful design with a lot of open air area and everywhere the guest will notice the attention to detail.

Some of us joined the YS Falls and Zip Sampler tour. After a drive of about 45 minutes, we arrived at the YS Falls, a beautiful park with a cascading waterfall. First, we received instructions for our Zip line tour. Then, we hopped into our "Zip line Outfits", helmet and harness. Then, we were ready to climb the steps uphill to get to the first platform. From there, we zipped over the waterfall to the next platform before we continued to three more platforms. It was a lot of fun. Afterwards, there was enough time to take a dip in the refreshing waters of the YS Falls. Later in the afternoon, we were back at Sandals Whitehouse.
We had Dinner at Giuseppe's restaurant where we enjoyed the Italian cuisine.

Dolphin Encounter

The tour for the next day was "Dolphin Encounter". After a 40-minute ride, we arrived at the location and received some instruction how to work and interact with the dolphins. Then, we were ready to meet those amazing creatures. Everyone had a lot of fun to be so close to dolphins that usually are just seen from a far distance. After playing with the dolphins, we had the chance to get close to a sting ray.
At night, we joined the Manager's Welcome Party followed by the Beach Party.

After having a sumptous breakfast with a great variety of delicious food, we went on a Glassbottom Boat tour. Later we gathered at the beach for the Beach Olympics. Soon, other guests joined us and together we had a lot of fun.

In the afternoon, we got ready for our Private Cocktail Party. That was a great opportunity to show of in beautiful Red Hatter outfits. Our dinner was served at Jasmines, a restaurant featuring very delicious Asian cuisine.

Enjoying activities at the resort

All-inclusive activities: snorkling, windsurfing, kayaking, wateskiing, kneeboarding, ...

Having a great time

Some of us joined today's tour: South Coast River, Rum and Falls and had a good time. It was a more extended tour that returned to the resort in the afternoon.
Staying at an all-inclusive Sandals resort means that all meals at all restaurants are included, as well as unlimitted premium brand drinks, soft drinks, beer and Beringer wines. In addition, almost all water sports like snorkling, windsurfing, kayaking, waterskiing, kneeboarding or hydrobikes are included. Certified divers will enjoy two free dives every day including most of the needed dive gear.
Prior to dinner, we met in the Grand Piazza for a Group Picture. Afterwards, we proceded to our Private Group Dinner that was beautifully set up in the courtyard.

Everybody enjoyed the last day at the resort. As always, Aquasize was always a popular activity that we enjoyed many times.

It was not easy to get used to the fact that we had to fly home the next day. Sandals sweetened the Farewell with a beautiful Farewell Cake made for our group.

In the evening, dinner was served at the Italian restaurant Giuseppe's. At night, we were invited to enjoy the Chocolate Buffet that was set up in the main Plaza.
