Now on to the R&R, or “Operation Relax” as the company behind the offer calls it. Sandals and Beaches, those swanky chains of all-inclusive resorts, are giving away free four-night vacations, good for the next two years. Well, I should say “almost free” as military personnel will have to pay their own airfare to get to the Caribbean (the resorts are located in St. Lucia, Antigua, Jamaica, Turks and Caicos and the Bahamas). But once they’re on site, everything will be taken care of—all meals, drinks (even premium liquors), snacks, tips and all activities from waterskiing to scuba diving to golf. It’s quite an offer, especially considering the plush amenities of these two chains.
Military personnel are requested to go to the Beaches (www.beaches.com) or Sandal’s (www.sandals.com) websites on May 9 to download an application form. Completed applications must be received by Aug. 9 at the latest. The parent company of Sandals and Beaches plans to give away $2 million worth of free vacations, with each one worth $2000 per person (you do the math).

Thanks Feona, our FRG leader had sent us this. I REALLY hope we get one, I'm sending in the application this week! Jamaica sounds nice, or St. Lucia. Drop the kids off in West Palm Beach with Mom-mom and Pop-pop, off for our very overdue honeymoon!!! LOL I need to not get my hopes up too much!

I know sandals resort usually costs a fortune to go to. We went to St Lucia (not the sandals resort) and it thought the volcanic island was great.

I wanted to go to Sandals Jamaica for our honeymoon and we didn't have the time, because of the 9/11 tragedy. DH was activated and we never got to plan a trip. My parents go island hopping quite a bit, usually on Windjammer cruises, but I have never been further than Key West, and that was 11 years ago or so. But I hear that the all-inclusive resorts like Sandals are amazing, and this is a great offer. I'll gladly pay the airfare!!!
