With just only four weeks to our first visit to Jamaica and having read nearly all the messages on these forums over the last few weeks to say I can't wait is an understatement.

One question I have is about the Resort Orientation as no one seems to have mentioned it - The reason I want to know about it is because over the years we have been fortunate to go on many a holiday abroad and everywhere has a "Welcome Meeting" where the travel agent spends about 5-10 minutes telling you about the resort and what seems like an hour giving you the hard sell on local trips so they can earn commission on your bookings so as a result we don't bother attending.

Obviously at CSS virtually everything is included so I can't see any reason for the 'hard sell' so I am guessing its either a trek around the resort with a guide pointing out places of interest or you sit in a group while someone tells you about everything so what exactly is the Resort Orientation and is it worth attending and how long does it take or can you just pick up a map of the resort and activities timetable from reception and then discover things yourself as you venture around the site.

We are only there for 10 nights and hope to be by the pool or beach soaking up the sun on our first full day there so need to know whether its worth missing out on the sun and trekking to the lobby or not.
