    Default CTI - January - 2016

    We have booked our 1st Jamaica trip and are trying Couples Tower Isle.
    I can't wait only have 105 day left. Will be a nice break from our Winter.

    Question want to Scuba dive one morning but am a little confussed by does the trip last all day or just half?

    Are you a certified diver? If not, the dive is likely a 3 hour course followed by a 30-40 minute dive (well worth the investment of time...my wife and I have done the intro dive at CN a few times). If you are a certified diver, I think they go out for a couple of hours in the morning, a couple of hours in the afternoon, then night dives (for a fee)...assuming CTI is like the other properties.

    We are both PADI Certified and we were not sure how long of time the dives were or how long you would be out and just wanted to know so we could plan our day out.
    Thanks for the info Bert
    We'll be there for 6 nights and so many things to do and see.
    What is better the Blue Hole or Dunn's River Falls?
    I know we'll have to pay extra for the Blue Hole but reviews are good and this is our 1st trip to Jamaica.
    Also any advise on MoBay Club at the airport hard to see paying $160 to just get through the customs line faster, then have one drink and leave.
    We arrive on Jan. 16th a Saturday around 2:30pm and Leave on a Friday afternoon.

    You guys are arriving on the day of the Anniversary Party. You will love it! Be ready to sample some of the best food, drinks, and COUPLES'S Magic! Nick and I will look forward to meeting you, as we arrive on Thursday. Also, if either, or both of you, play golf, sign up and join us in the annual Golf Tournament. You don't have to be a pro- just go and have fun!

    It will be great to meet you when we arrive.
    Hopefully all will go well during our flights down be arriving about Dinner time to CTI and I'll have to bring you two a drink over for your Anniversary. I'd say i'd buy you a round but you know. LOL
    I golf some but my wife doesn't, Not sure our plans has the time for golfing this trip we are looking at scuba, snorkeling and Dunn's River might go to the Blue Hole. tring to do a lot of things in a short week stay. since this is our first trip to Jamaica we are trying to see and do all we can. Have you traveled to the island in January before? wondering about the Airport Club MoBay? Can't really find much about the amount of travelers in Mid-January. Countdown 80 days for us.

    Thanks for the offer of drinks for our anniversary- actually, it is the resorts anniversary party!! Second to none! Put your bags away, and, come and enjoy. The golf is the next morning. Maybe another year!! My husband golfs- I don't, but we have been coming yearly for 15 years. I can spare him for a few hours. Yes, this is our 4th January trip. Traveled all different months, before. it is pretty full in the winter, especially Anniversary. Never used Club MoBay. Others have and liked it. Just never felt necessary to us. Look forward to meeting you there!

    Wendy - Thanks for the Information - sorry about the anniversasry offer (I still can wave the red flag on the beach to get us some drinks) LOL but sounds like the resort will be rolling by the time we arrive Saturday Evening.
    We can't wait both of us have been reading the board for sometime and looks like we have made a great pick for our 1st trip to Jamaica. Been to other Islands and stayed but not here yet.

    Even if only once - order up a Bob Marley shot for you and the misses while you are there. I've seen them made at both the swim-up pool bar and main pool bar at CTI. Not sure if they keep the correct stock on the island to make them there or not.

    You can also email me about this (trading places), my profile has an email listed in the "About You" section. We learned about something a bit different our second trip to CTI regarding this.

    Our first visit to CTI (and Couples) we happened to be there for their anniversary celebration where they pull out all the stops on dinner at the Patio Restaurant, extra decorations, entertainment, food, ice/food sculptures, etc. Quite impressive since we were not expecting it and knew nothing about it.
