    9 time repeaters to CSA. And, we've also stayed at two of the sister Couples resorts, and a few of the other brand-name all-inclusives, though not for many years. The reason is simple. Jamaica is a...

    The standard beachfront suites are basically atrium suites, located on the beach path. First floor rooms are good because of the easy beach access. You just walk out the door and you're there. Also...

    The troubling thing about this is that we are being told that this board is only for discussion of Couples resorts. Well, neighbors can affect the quality of one's stay at your Couples Resort. I...

    If it's your first time, the garden verandah's are just fine. You can scout out the other room locations for yourself, and decide if you think it's worth the money next time. There will be a next...

    I absolutely love rum, and rum-based drinks. But every once in awhile for a change of pace I enjoy a good margarita, or just a vodka and Ting. And then there's the Martini Bar. But when I wring out...

    This is a really good point. I've spent at least 150 days at three of the four Couples resorts, the majority at CSA. Out of all those days, I was bothered by large group behavior 10 of those days,...

    If there is enough demand for one, no objection on my part. I really wonder if there would be enough interest (tipping passengers) to make it worthwhile for a catamaran crew. If there is, great!

    I'm not a fan of large groups either, for the reasons others have thoroughly covered. It seems that the only alternative left to us is to consider other options. I'm not ready to do that quite yet....

    I've liked CN in the past. After our visit to CSA just last week, we rode by the Royalton. I am really trying hard not to exaggerate here, so suffice to say that I was surprised at how large it was....

    I just did it last week, and got a confirmation email that included everything we'd asked for. That's a welcome improvement, so please pass on my kudos to whoever made that happen.[/I]

    I don't have a problem with the review. I do want to disagree with one point, however. I would really not like to be nagged, or "pulled" into doing activities. This practice has annoyed us at other...

    Some of the wandering musicians start to show up a little before lunchtime, and Iceblock is typically not in that first wave. You can expect him to roll in from the south on or after 1, and work his...

    I think having an online option would be great, as long as the ability to complete comment cards at the resort is preserved. Speaking only for myself, I do a better job of remembering names and...

    Having also been to Antigua and St. Lucia and Aruba, the specific island doesn't matter much to me. Of the 3 I mentioned, I think St. Lucia comes closest to the Jamaican vibe people like, and I can...

    Jamaica is in the tropics, so while the numbers may vary, there are always mosquitoes. If my wife and I were thinking of having children, I just wouldn't go. Yes, the odds of getting infected are...

    We love CSA. But given the limitations on mobility, the more compact CN is definitely the way to go. It is a fine resort with a great beach. We prefer CSA but it's a lot more walking around, which is...

    I just bring a pair of Dockers, and then go back and change after dinner. I am not put out by that. I wish they'd never opened this can of worms by allowing dress jeans, and I wouldn't be surprised...

    I wouldn't worry about noise because it's everywhere. If you are in a beachfront you can hear the equipment grooming the beach very early in the day. Wherever you are, you will occasionally hear a...

    Thank you for sharing those facts. We always go in late February......and have been for 27 years, arriving Saturday. So, your number crunching aligns closely with our experience.
