    It is so wonderful to see the faces old friends! The staff can make or break a resort and the Staff at JI makes it a GREAT resort, again and again. Congratulations to all, Staff, Management, Owners and even Guests. We are all winners with this wonderful group of people! The first time I stayed at JI was in the Fall of 1974 – I was a lot younger then. I have missed visiting only about 12 times since then. And now the next generation is coming to JI too. I want to be there every year from now on! It is such a Joy! Thank you all!!

    I dare say there is no other Caribbean property with longevity numbers to match these. Many of these people have assisted me in the past and I am thrilled they are all still there. Must be time for me to come back!
    Congratulations Jamaica Inn.
