Only Two Kids Are Allowed At JA’s Sunset At The Palms

The Sunset at the Palms in Negril, Jamaica welcomed two additions to its resort family when goat mascots Betty and Royal Brown became proud parents to a pair of kids in late December.
Betty joined the resort's grounds-keeping crew last year and quickly became the highlight of the weekly nature tour. Loving the attention, she joined guests for picnic lunches (Betty doing the cabbage and grass thing while guests dined on fruit, sandwiches and wine).
Royal Brown entered the scene last summer, had his bearded jaw dropped by Betty’s beguiling beauty -- and the two were married in a unique destination late-November destination wedding, joined by staff and guests.
The resort’s blog suggests the possibility of a ‘shotgun wedding,’ because the kids – one boy and one girl -- made their debut just weeks later.
Reports are that the as-yet-unnamed baby goats are friendly and playful and began joining their parents on guest picnics over the holidays.
"Although the staff of Sunset at the Palms eagerly embraces the new additions to their animal family," a spokesperson said, "we can confirm that these goats are the only kids you will ever see at our all-inclusive, adults-only resort."
