Lucea Things to Do

  • Exchange Hotel

    We had an opportunity to enlarge our views over Jamaica, using a surprising program exchanging guests from two distant hotels. What a great idea! Thus we spent two nights in Lucea, when it was supposed to stay all week in Runaway Bay. If you may... use it.

  • Martha Brae

    I know the only two persons who went to Jamaica without descending a river on a bamboo raft. We didn't share that rarity, and did it in Martha Brae, near Lucea. A calm river, showing the luxurious vegetation in its banks for about 45 minutes. Nice!

  • Live the resort

    Palladium was not only a good hotel - it had life. Day and night we noticed that all the staff gave their best to please. And they did!

    The main restaurant in Palladium had a good buffet, but the most interesting aspect was its wide construction, prepared to face hurricanes.

    Being an all-inclusive resort, everywhere was a good place to eat and drink, even in the middle of the pool, where 5 spanish spent almost two hours holding glasses and talking around a missing table (yes, 5! The sixt is Fernanda just passing by the animated "table").

    They were only a few, but with great enthusiasm, the animation team kept the hotel moving day and night.

    Funny, and very nice the way they "dragged" people from the bars to the discotheque in their closing time.

    Conceived to act as a real city, the big resorts have a complementary shopping area that goes far beyond the common gift shop.

    The variety is not too big, and the prices are high, but if you go outside and visit a mall, you will find out that it is almost the same.

Lucea Warnings and Dangers

  • solopes's Profile Photo

    by solopes Updated Dec 22, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Typhoons are common in Jamaica, and a risk that everybody may consider before leaving. They compromise the touristy activity and prices, though the tourism is investing to minimize the menace.

    The new hotels are being built expecting to be crossed by frequent typhoons with the least possible damages. The solutions go from strong walls facing the sea to open spaces where the winds may pass with ease.

    We saw it in Palladium, a brand new hotel, where the lobby and restaurants where widely open and covered spaces. When the next typhoon comes, they will only remove the furniture and let it pass.

Lucea Off The Beaten Path

    The resorts mean a heavy investment, most of it in... beaches. There is too much artificial details in some of the visited beaches, with the hotels trying to control the coast. That was clearly seen in Palladium hotel, with sand moving from place to place, and plastic canvas not yet totally hidden below the sand.

    The work is not aggressive to the landscape, but the final result still misses... authenticity.
