Comparing Secrets Resorts vs Couples Resorts in Jamaica (Part 2)

 When comparing the Secrets Resorts to the Couples Resorts, you'd also want to consider:

 So size would be the first difference. Then location; the Secrets Wild Orchid and Secrets St. James is only about a 15-20 minute ride from the Sangsters Montego Bay Airport.

PROS & CONS

+ Near the airport. Conviently located - to start your vacation quickly.
 - Some guests may say they have a problem hearing planes...we saw planes but they were too far away to hear.

 The service at Secrets Resorts is impeccable! From your check-in (they act as though your their distant cousins that you haven't seen in a long time!) In fact, you can either be pampered with attendants ready to retrieve your every call or be in complete solitude, only hearing the sound of waves, island birds and the occasional Reggae music played during your stay.

 + Outstanding service from start to finish!
 - Prices may be higher than some of their competitors but you get what you pay for.

 Overall, when comparing Secrets Resorts to Couples Resorts, ask yourself these few questions:
  1. How far/close do we want to be from the airport?
  2. Does the resort have exactly what I'm looking for?
  3. How much is it?

 Secrets Resorts and Couples Resorts are both GREAT places to stay and with the right information from your trusted travel agency (Hall Travel and Associates) - your vacation will be a beautiful, successful adventure, well worth the investment!

Sleigh Bells Ring; Are You Listening

 Have you listened to the sounds of Winter, it speaks and says, I want to hear the sound of children laughing as they make a snowman, build a fort or how about a snow-ball fight.

 Living in Northeastern Ohio, we get to experience all 4 seasons and why does Winter have to be a time when we run from the elements? Have you ever thought about renting a cabin or a cottage in our state parks, packing food, blankets & clothing. Or what about having an old fashion Thanksgiving? All the relatives meeting there for a weekend - I guarantee it will be a weekend to remember. To add more spice, how about getting a small Christmas tree, and having the kids to make their own ornaments - with the help of mom & dad of course. What a time the family would have exchanging presents under a tree that was decorated by the family.

 Being from the Northeastern part of the state, what do you say if we head on over to Middlefield, Ohio to the Amish Country and how about having a  delicious dinner at one of their many fine restaurants (um yummy); that is of course, after a day at the ski lodge for a day of - tubing!...yep, fun for the whole family, or what about a sleigh ride, pulled by beautiful Clydesdale Horses, with of course your very own red, plaid blanket across your lap.

 For the more challenging ones, bring your own snowboard or even your skies - see Winter doesn't have to be sitting in looking out. Learn to enjoy all the seasons in Northeastern Ohio & of course, "Sleigh bells do ring; are you listening?

 Tell us what you think. At Hall Travel and Associates, we can put this & many more packages together just for you & your family! Enjoy!!!

Comparing Secrets Resorts vs Couples Resorts in Jamaica

(This assessment is only reflective of the 4 different properties I have visited in Jamaica.)

 Couples: When looking for places to spend your next vacation, Couples "the name itself," draws viewers in. Who doesn't want to be a couple?
First, you begin to think of yourself with that special loved one, basking in the sun on a warm Caribbean beach. You'll then, most likely - begin to look at the photos of the property and check-out the prices & dates of when you want to go.
 
Now as a travel agency, this is where we step in:

  • DISTANCE - A little over an hour to reach from the Montego Bay Airport [Sangsters International Airport](Couples San Souci & Couples Tower Isle both located in Ocho Rios.) 
       
CONS

        - The drive takes a while and who wants to wait a whole hour before puttin' your feet in the sand?
       
PROS
+ Away from the hustle & bustle of the BIG city;
you'll definitely be in CHILL mode at either of these resorts.

  • APPEARANCE - 1978 was the year when their founder,
    Abe Iss, started the chain. {1949, Abe Issa opened the 1st year-round resort}.

CONS

- Decor not as updated as some of the newer resort chains.

PROS

+ During your stay, you'll take notice of those who've visited some of the Couples Resorts (either by photos or art) and feel priviledged to be a part of the history, heritage and prestige of this relaxed, All-Inclusive, boutique luxury resort.

 Check back soon to see the comparison with Secrets Resorts in Jamiaca - coming soon.
