[Client Interview] Entertainment at Sandals Whitehouse Jamaica – 2nd Day of our 20-Year Wedding Anniversary
Looking for nightly entertainment at Sandals Whitehouse suggestions? Day 2 of our Sandals Whitehouse wedding anniversary vacation was spent hanging out on the beach, reading a good book, taking a nap and sampling the mixed drinks from the pool bar. After some much needed rest and relaxation, we wanted to stay up a little later and sample some of the outstanding entertainment themes the Sandals Whitehouse resort has to offer.
After dinner at Giuseppe’s, we headed over to Le Cabaret to listen to Opera Rasta Man Singer Rory Frankson. Then the resident band, Legal Vibration, kept the party vibe going.
Why did we pick the Sandals Whitehouse Jamaica resort? For our 20th Anniversary, my husband and I decided that we wanted to celebrate by going some place with “blue water”. That was about the only instruction we gave Mike of Southern Travel Agency in Augusta, GA.
I had been searching on the internet for all inclusive resorts in the Caribbean or Mexico, but there was so much information to weed through.
I found a forum on resorts in Mexico that mentioned nude sunbathing, which I did NOT want.
So I asked Mike to steer us clear of those places. I told him I wanted to sit on the beach and relax. I have a stressful job so I wanted a relaxing vacation.
