Foodie Diary: Day One || Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall

Work hard, play hard is the only virtue to live by and what makes me really enjoy indulging in vacation! I’m spending the week with my family relaxing & most importantly – eating – at the all-inclusive Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall resort in Montego Bay. This is my first time in Jamaica & I plan to fully immerse in the food scene to make the most of my trip. Follow my foodie journey as I chronicle my dining adventures through a daily food diary…

Location: Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall – Montego Bay, Jamaica
Date: Monday, August 1st

8:30 AM: Pre-Breakfast Coffee & Muffin
Rise & shine and ease into the day! As I waited for the rest of my family to wake up and get ready for breakfast, I decided to enjoy a cup of Jamaican coffee & banana-nut muffin from PotionZ Bar & Lounge back on the balcony of my room – a breakfast pre-game, if you will.


10:00 AM: Breakfast Buffet
Buffets are what all-inclusive resorts are most known for & ChoiceZ Buffet did not disappoint. Upon entering the restaurant, there was a Build Your Own Bloody Mary & Mimosa bar – which is the only way to start breakfast. Along the buffet, guests could find a variety of breakfast staples – omelettes, cereal, bacon – along with Jamaican fare like corn beef hash and porridge. As per usual, I went a bit overboard. I started with a made-to-order omelette and a medley of breakfast meats. Then I made my way back for round two for French toast – topped with brown sugar, syrup, & walnuts – to satisfy my sweet tooth.

2:00 PM: Poolside Lunch
After spending a couple of hours in the Caribbean Sea, lunch was well overdue. We headed over to the West End snack bar to re-charge & re-fuel. Since I had a heavy breakfast, I decided to keep lunch a bit lighter. I decided to go with a fresh grilled shrimp skewer and chicken patty – another Jamaican staple. I also subsidized this meal with many, MANY drinks for the poolside bar.

7:00 PM: Dinner Buffet
After a long hard day of relaxing by the beach & pool, it was yet again time for another meal. For dinner we decided to head back to ChoiceZ for dinner – they were featuring Jamaican cuisine as the main food offering. I tried a few traditional dishes like Curry Goat, Ox Tail, and Rice & Peas – all were delicious! Dessert is always my main focus for any meal, so I indulged in some ice cream and custard tarts.
