Prisoner of Rick's own making.

On our first sunny day we snapped some shots of the pool. This is one of three, though certainly the most utilized and where the volleyball games were played. The temperature of the pool or ocean water wasn't as warm as we would have thought, however you don't care once the hot Caribbean sun starts heating things up.

Of course had we known we'd only have 2 days of sun . . .

Rick did participate in the daily water volleyball games (Rick was on the winning team twice and received exactly what you'd expect down here as a prize: bottles of rum. Rum is everywhere as is common in the Caribbean.)

The Grande Jamaican Resort is a four-star resort, and offers everything one would need to be able to experience an enjoyable vacation here in the West Indies.

We are particularly thankful that Marriott decided to purchase the Renaissance chain of hotels and resorts a few years back allowing us to use Marriott points to cover the cost of the stay.
