Swept Away Resort, Negril Jamaica

Share:Swept Away Resort Negril, Jamaica Filming location: BodyShaping ESPN While filming BodyShaping for ESPN, we stayed at  Swept Away in Negril Jamaica. What a beautiful resort.

Just don’t look at them and you’ll be fine. It’s really amazing but for me, I kept thinking a sea snake would grab me! Quick dip and that’s it! Kids and hubby had so much fun jumping off the steps!…
