Beaches Resort
Jamaica was simply out of this world and we loved every single minute at Beaches Resorts Ocho Rios. A luxurious resort where kids really come first meaning everyone is happy.

I wanted to share a little film we made out there, edited by Pippa of Sparkle Films.

I hope it captures the complete adventure we had in Jamaica, the perfect beaches: tranquil turquoise waters, the pink and golden sands we played in, the spectacle of the carnival that blew us all away, Sesame Street coming to life, and the food, oh the food is just unforgettable.

Weeks later they are still talking about what we got up to and this blog will act as a reminder in the years to come.

It really was a once in a lifetime, magical holiday and we’re already dreaming of returning one day.

fun on the beachI really feel so grateful that blogging brings these wonderful opportunities my way, it creates memories for my little family, opens their minds to new cultures, and gives them the gift of travel.

Thanks again Beaches Resorts for the most incredible holiday.

    Loved the video and seeing your boys having the best times. Looks definitely like a place great for families, and the beach looks like something I would spend most of my time at. Will put on our “holiday” places to visit list x

    I remember seeing some of your pictures on instagram, whilst you were on holiday!Ocho Rios is such an amazing place, I would love to go back some day. I loved Dunns River falls which were just mind blowing. There was so much of the Island we didn’t visit when we were there on honeymoon. I wouldn’t necessarily have picked it as a child friendly place, but you have shown otherwise!Fabulous photos!

      Thanks Mel, we didn’t get to Dunns River falls as we were advised it would be hard with the toddler but I’d love to visit next time we go, Beaches Resorts is 100 child-friendly, it’s so magical for kids (and adults), we loved it x

    This looks like magic! Loved the film. I was lucky enough to live in the Caribbean (Trinidad) for two years when I was a child. The local culture is amazing – the local cuisine is INCREDIBLE, not to mention the weather.

    I’ve holidayed in St Maarten as an adult, and this reminded me a lot of that experience of the Caribbean. What a beautiful part of the world to go to, and you all look like you enjoyed it so much! xxx

    Having read your first post about your Beaches holiday I didn’t think you could make me want to visit more but OMG you SO have! There’s nothing like seeing a destination on film to really bring it to life and you’ve captured the magic beautifully. Want to go NOW!
