Datura was a total dream vacation for my family. Everyone relaxed in a way I don't think I've ever seen us manage before! It's so pretty, beautiful views, great pool, comfortable beds and sofas and chaises to flop down on everywhere. The staff, led by Precious, are very child friendly, they don't mind a nude toddler bursting into the kitchen to "help" make dinner. We are all longing to return...

Montego Bay, Jamaica

All the swagger of Usain Bolt

In Montego Bay, days are spent on pristine white sands, gazing at the liners heading out to sea, with evenings in welcoming rustic beach shacks, swaying your hips to reggae, and sinking your teeth into a leg of mouth-watering spiced chicken. The sun is hot, the rum’s on ice, the fruits and fish are fresher than you’ve ever tasted, and the Blue Mountain coffee is the perfect pick-me up in the morning. Let the kids swashbuckle their way into the island’s pirate history, race through the waves with all the spirit, speed and swagger of Usain Bolt.
