    I would definitely visit but would not want to stay with family. I’m not too close or familiar with them. Plus I’m not too ashamed to say I need basic amenities the resort would have my family in the local area would not.

    Somewhere out there...
    I went to JA with my BF last year and stayed at his mama's house in country. I was a bit scared at night..she has bars on her windows , 3 gates to her front door and an electric gate to her property but I was still a little frightened. We stayed at the resort last few days....i never went out without my BF. After reading all of this, i don;t even want to go there right now. sounds really unsafe.

    Yea, in JA you'll be safe and the people will be nice when you are with a man. Women on solo trips or in small groups with other women are the ones having these problems.

    I’ve stayed at one resort mentioned, Sunscape Splash in Montego Bay. The male staff were very flirtatious, but it’s no different then the Jamaican men here in NYC. Horrible resort though! I’m also staying at another resort mention this December for my 40th, Riu Reggae. These people have me nervous as hell! Me and my girls each have our own rooms. We will be doing things together but I wanted everyone to have their privacy. This is scary!

    This is the place where the two ladies from Detroit were raped last year.

    One month before two Detroit women were raped at the Hotel Riu Reggae in Montego Bay, Jessica Hansen of Dallas, Texas, went to the same resort with three friends to celebrate her 30th birthday.

    But the trip was cut short.

    After one full day at the all-inclusive resort, Hansen said, the women left because of sexual harassment by "very sexually aggressive" male workers. It started out with compliments, gestures and long stares, and quickly escalated, she said.

    One of her friends was followed around by an entertainment dancer named Showtime who demanded her phone number or Facebook info. She told him repeatedly that she wasn't interested, she said, but he would not stop and followed her for 40 minutes.

    Hansen said she was taunted while waiting in line for Jamaican jerk chicken. A male staffer approached her, told her how innocent and pure she looked, and how she needed a Jamaican man to show her how "a real man should f--- her," she said.

    Nope, in the DR the victims are black and white. I think the target are foreigners.
