Sweet Escape To Moon Palace Jamaica Grande Resort & Spa

I spent last Saturday at Moon Palace Jamaica Grande Resort & Spa, located in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. Over 2 hours away from Kingston, where I am staying. I had reached out to their team to collaborate and I was offered a complimentary day pass to facilitate my review.

Winter is coming, and if you are looking for the perfect getaway for your family, friends and/or spouse you might want to put this resort on the top of your list and here is why.

The Food

The resort has a total of 4 restaurants and 6 bars. You have Buccaneers reef which is a international buffet restaurant, which offers breakfast, lunch and dinner and can accommodate over 500 individuals. La Gondola, which is Italian themed and serves dinner. Pier 8, is for the seafood lovers, like myself and also serves lunch and dinner and Momo which is an Asian themed restaurant and serves dinner. They also have Gourmet Corner, a self service pizza, pannis and sushi restaurant.

As the foodie I am, I had to stop by the buffet area to grab something to eat while I take in such a paradise.

My Thoughts on Moon Palace Jamaica Grande Resort & Spa

I must say my visit was beyond what I expected it to be. I was greeted upon entering the Lobby by Ramoy, who was my tour guide for the day, we were later accompanied by Kemarlo. I checked in at the front desk and then the tour began. The tour guides were quite friendly, courteous and informative. As we toured the property and we approached other staff members, they too, were very polite, friendly and welcoming.

It was always a dream of mine to visiting Moon Palace Jamaica Grande, so I was eager to jump on this opportunity to get to visit in live and living colours. The property is beautiful, clean, spacious and well thought out. My trip was one of a kind and unforgettable, I can’t wait to go back and enjoy it all, once more.
