February 2014 Hedo Trip Reports

G&M Hedonism ii Trip report-February 2014

The Feb trip was fun! Resort is much improved, though the rooms actually seem smaller than before. The food was better, though the house wines* still not good. The biggest problem was the staff – (They) don’t know if they were short-staffed or simply unaware of the new room category.(Premium Room Category) The fridge was not restocked until we left money behind, they were unaware of the”perks” offered with the premium room, and rooms were not made up until 4-5 pm. Anyway, don’t know how much influence any individual would have with these issues, but thought we’d mention them. Left comment cards as well.

But we still had a blast!

CASTAWAYS NOTE: A premium wine list is now available for guests to purchase their own selection.

B&G Hedonism ii-February 2014

in 2013 we had decided to give Hedo “one last chance”. the deteriorating facilities, awful beach chairs, ragged towels and mediocre food were dampening the enjoyment of our favorite resort. the staff was depressed and uncertain of their futures.The new management promised changes but, obviously, a lot of money was going to be needed to overcome years of neglect.

We’re happy to report that 2014 is a new happier year.The facilities work better, look fresher, the beach chairs are new (although still in short supply at times) and the staff is much more upbeat. Kudos to the chef; the food is more interesting, better quality, more varied and Friday night’s chocolate dessert buffet created it’s own orgasms amongst the chocoholics. Smile. The rooms are still creaky and stale but gradually being remodeled. Overall we are happy with the changes and planning our 15th trip. congratulation to management on successfully restoring the resort and our willingness to return.

T&C Hedonism ii-February 2014

Our travel started out as a nightmare. United cancelled our flight out of Saskatoon. We had to find another way to leave that same day. We ended up traveling by bus to Regina to catch a flight to Toronto, to Montreal, then to Montego Bay. We get to Regina, find out our seats weren’t booked. United had no flights leaving so they booked us on Air Canada. We made it to Toronto and then to MBJ from there. Flight was delayed a couple hours so we got to MBJ the same time many other flights did, making it a 2 hour customs wait.

The whole time we were at Hedo was amazing. We had no issues with anything there. Mike and Dawn (with Nood Brood) were excellent hosts. We enjoyed all the events we took part in. The only downfall was not enough time! Next year we’re going to try some of the things we didn’t get to this year. The staff were very friendly and so were the people. We enjoyed our trip so much.

Once again, travel home was a nightmare, all thanks to United. We made it from MBJ to Houston with no problems. But we had 45 min to make a connection to Calgary, when it took almost 2 hours to make it through Customs. Ended up spending the night and getting home almost 24 hours later than originally planned. We both missed a day of work and our kids missed school because of this.

We have already been keeping an eye on flights for next year and we are not flying United/Air Canada again.

Wife and I wanted to take a trip to Jamaica, we weren’t sure we’re yet. After some research on resorts we came across Hedo. Wanting something different with a little excitement for a vacation, yet not wanting to feel uncomfortable we felt Hedo was our place to go. Best decision we ever made, not only was this the best place we have ever been wife already wants me to plan our next one there. Pressure free fun resort. Thank you Castaways Travel for a smooth enjoyable vacation that we will never forget. G&S;
