THE COCKTAIL HOUR: Jamaican Swimup Drinking Tour

It's another sampling of Caribbean all-access, all-you-can-drink, all inclusive drinks, this time from the pools of the Luxury Bahia Principe and the Gran Bahia Principe in Runaway Bay, Jamaica.

The entire resort boast nine bars, two of which are the swimup variety. In our end of the pool, there's also a poolside bar reserved for the guests of the Luxury Bahia side of things with waiter service to bring your cocktails to the pool.

Since drinks are included in your room rate, you just ask and it shall be given up to you. Some guests take this to another extreme, since it's also unlimited, by bringing giant mugs...like you'd find in the Big Gulp section of your 7/11...and fill them to the brim with their favorite cocktail.


There's a certain logic to this since the drinks are served in fairly small glasses, making frequent trips to the bar a necessity. Other guests, like us, got around this by just ordering two drinks at once or asking for the large size so we wouldn't be interrupting our pool time so often.

The resort would also have a "drink of the day," a special tropical concoction that every bartender could whip up in an instant.  We had Jamican Sunrises, Summer Winds, Bob Marleys, Green Islands, and more. Just ask for the drink of the day and you'd be set.

In the video above, you can follow along as we sample some of these alcoholic delights plus Rum Runners, Mai Tais, Dacquiris, and what the bartender referred to as "don't worry about it, you'll like it." This became the No Worries.

Cheers!
