One of Negril’s Oldest Hoteliers gets a ministerial visit


It was indeed a delightful moment for Doretta Forrester and the Jamaica Tourism Minister, Hon. Edmund Bartlett, as they greeted each other at Caribbean Delight, one of the fine boutique hotels along the coastline of Negril’s famous seven-mile beach.

Mrs. Forrester, who owns the property, spends much of her time in a wheelchair but has been effectively managing it with strong support from her daughter Andita for the past 16 years. It was one of the many stops made by the Minister recently during a tour of a section of the famous seven-mile beach, observing resort activities and meeting tourists, locals and operators of businesses along the stretch. The tour was followed by a meeting with Negril stakeholders at Couples Swept Away.
