    Default How early....?

    This may be a ridiculous question...but how early can you be served alcohol? Is 9am too early to swim up to the pool bar?

    The bars at CTI typically open at 10:00 also. Suites have minibars so I guess you could serve yourself at 6:00 a.m. if you were in a suite. Also, we have been in the piano bar still drinking at 2:00 or 3o in the morning....which discourageous being up at 9:00 a.m. to start again....if you know what I mean.

    There is vodka and all the other goodies needed to make you own Bloody Mary's, as well as Bubbly for Memosa's at all the Buffet's at all the resort's every morning. I make one everyorning .

    I believe all the resorts begin serving alcohol at 10. It's not a silly quesiton at all. Last year we convinced someone to leave the beer fridge on Tower Isle unlocked at night so we could serve ourselves at 9 when we got there.

    While the bars don't open until 10:00 you can get Champagne (sparkling white wine) & Vodka at the buffet at CTI for Mimosa's and Bloody Mary's. You just serve yourself. I loved the Champagne with the Cherry juice while we were there last week.

    As noted, the bar opens at 10a. However, you can make mimosas and Bloody Marys as early as 7a (IIRC) at the buffet.

    I believe the pool bars open at 10am. But the breakfast buffets usually have the "fixins" set up for Mimosas & Bloody Marys

    The Pool Bar and Beachgrill Bar open at 10AM at CN.
    At breakfast (full breakfast starting at 7:30) they set out items for mimosas, screwdrivers, and bloody marys (i.e. they have vodka and champagne out).

    IIRC, at CSA they had the fixings for mimosas and bloody marys (i.e., vodka and "sparkling wine") at one of the restaurants for breakfast. But, as noted elsewhere, most bars don't open until about 10 (grab a flag and sit on the beach and wait for the bar to open!!!)

    I can't speak for CTI - do they have a breakfast alcohol setup there as well?

    You can get Mimosa's and Bloody's at a self serve station at the breakfast buffet.

    I remember at CSA that you can mix your own Mimosa at the Palms when it opens at around 8am. Or you can hit the mini-bar in the room too. Who needs to wait till the bars open? Life is good in Paradise!

    Okay, do NOT be teasing me...bloody mary's on the buffet at breakfast every morning at CSS?? Somebody repeat that! I love them but never dreamed of having them in Jamaica for some reason! Might even make me get up early enough for breakfast!

    And of course, all the rooms have mini bars...so you could just serve yourself when you first get up

    We usually wait until one of the bartenders makes a big tray of the daily specials and then walks the beach to hand them out. I never turn that down.

    Would like to see a bottle of champagne out in the morning so you could start off with a nice mimosa.

    Heh, I guess I need to go to the palms sometime. We have spent 22 days at CSA and I have yet to go to palms for breakfast. 22/22 at patois.

    All of the rooms at CN have a mini bar so you can have a drink anytime...also, there is a self-serve beach bar with a soda fountain and liquor that is available all the time as well...vodka and Ting is a refreshing way to start the day!!

    You normally wouldn't think about having Bloody Mary's in Jamaica, HOWEVER, I like them as a relief from all the very sweet drinks I also enjoy. Ting and Vodka is also a great refresher. Ting is a grapefruit soda.
