Day Three:

Excursion Day!!

We had a very early start, but it was made up on the ride to the first excursion, Blue Hole. Blue Hole was very fun, even though I didn’t feel comfortable jumping in the water. There were many opportunities to sit in the water while I watched my classmates jump from such heights. The guides were very alert and wanted to ensure everyone’s safety. Afterward, we went river tubing, which I fully participated in. The guide contributed significantly to our fun. He spun us while we were going down the tough waters. This was my favorite excursion. Finally, my classmates went zip lining. We returned to the bus and picked up authentic Jamaican food on the way back to the resort.

In the evening, we had a tour and dinner at Sandles Ochi. Everyone was dressed in white for the white night. The tour included three properties in one and the central laundry room. There is a chapel at the end of the pier that has a clear aisle.

Day Four:

My favorite day on the whole trip. After breakfast, as a team, we meet with the following departments. I was able to shadow Cost Control. In Cost Control, there is a “grocery store” that the restaurants and bars have to buy from. The weights and costs are double-checked to ensure everything is correct. The bars have a “one in, one out” type of program. Bars must send empty bottles to be checked off and then replenished with the same bottles. Cost Control is essentially innovatory. I learned so much from this department experience; everyone was very inviting.

Next, I was able to shadow Weddings. I learned about the packages offered and how someone books a wedding at Beaches or Sandles. The team was very friendly and informative. I would definitely be interested in working in all these departments long term.
