High school seniors would love this place since they could play volleyball, or play on the kayaks, or play with the paddleboats, or go snorkeling. And it's all included in the $20 entry fee! There are 3 beaches and 3 pools to choose from. They even had a pool table. One pool also had a volleyball net on it so you could play volleyball while swimming. This would be the perfect place to take a diverse group of people because there are so many activities to choose from. Everyone should be able to find something they like.
Ocho Rios is a good hour drive from Sunset Beach Resort depending on traffic conditions. It's just too far to drive in my opinion. I wouldn't want to use up my valuable port time stuck in a taxi for 2 or maybe 3 hours round trip, not to mention what it would cost to take a taxi all the way over to Sunset and then back.
I appreciate the notice about the topless sunbathing. It seems to be everywhere! Friends of ours just went to the Ritz Carlton in Miami last month and they have a 'clothing optional' pool now. They are supposed to be the 'trend setter' nwo for other hotels to follow suit. What's up with that? I guess I'll have to second guess everywhere we go now and that's too bad.
