    Yes! That's it; thanks for filling the gap in my memory. There was a fourth school from out of town staying there, too, but I don't remember the name of the school at all. Anyway, the place was full of high-school athletes and was plenty lively.

    In kingston I met my girlfriend's family, had some shorty's pan chicken which I absolutely LOVED! We went to this place that had mexican food - can't remember the name but it was fantastic. mostly in kingston it was a lot of quality time. then we drove from Kingston to ochie which was BEAUTIFUL We drove through spanish town and went over the mountain pass.

    we then went to st. mary where I met my gf's sister and mom. her house is BEAUTIFUL! she works for sandals and got us day pass to enjoy the all inclusive beach - that was fantastic! - more info to come - I'm working so I can't do too much. haha

    WOW! ok the last two are VERY inexpensive gotta give em a call tonight!!
    </div></div>

    sandhurst guest house is interesting, lots of entertainers use the place . . . lots of fun . . . cheap . . . </div></div>

    I stayed at Sandhurst the nights of 3/13-15. It's being quite extensively remodeled, and has changed its name to "The Prestige," even though it hasn't updated its signage yet. They seem to be coping with running the place during the remodeling all right. Our visit happened to coincide with the GraceKennedy high school track championships, and several track teams from all over (Ocho Rios high, Marcus Garvey high, Edwin someone high, and at least one other that I'm not remembering right now) were staying there at the same time, so the place was lively as well as dissheveled, but the staff was managing to cope with the chaos quite well, I thought.

    you know i took SO many less pics than I had planned, but i'll see what I can dig up and give a full trip report soon.

    Indies was REALLY a lot better than I hoped, I had a lot less in mind in terms of what to expect when I posted this thread.

    problem with pics is that most of them are of my gf and son, not many scenery pics, but I was having too much fun to even think about pics.

    so far I CAN stay at Sandhurst for 2 of the days that I need to - the first night and the night i come back to kingston, but they can't guarantee me a room for the next 3 nights as they have a school coming to stay there. so I'm covered for thursday night and sunday night and I just need mon-wednesday, I may not REALLY need wednesday since I'm leaving kingston 5 am thurs morn, here's hoping I get something definite.

    Mi memba it now: Shirley Guest House (or is Shirley Retreat guest house? [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/70402-thinking.gif[/img] ). It's affiliated with a church. Has a very basic breakfast (toast and tea/coffee) with the price of room, but you can order a bigger Jamaican breakfast for extra (you have to order the night before).
