Thread: CSA room

  1. #1

    Default CSA room

    My fiancee and I will be first timers at the couples resorts, we are booking our honeymoon for November 2016! We can't decide between the garden verandah and great house verandah rooms. Any suggestions would be great!

    Ckfrancis, gvs are in small buildings with the older side having 4 per building and the newer gvs in buildings of 12 rooms. The Greathouse is of course a large more hotel-like building that also houses the gift shops, excursion desk, photo desk, Patios restaurant, Aura lounge, casino room and Internet cafe. You may get an ocean view from this building if you're lucky and it's close to many amenities on that end of the resort. I've never stayed in it but I've heard the noise is minimal. We have stayed in the gvs 3 times and will be again in October. If you'd like a few pics, email me at clemonssara40@gmail.com

    I would choose the Garden Veranda. Those rooms are surrounded by lush vegetation. And if you are on the ground floor, you can walk right off your veranda. I'm not a fan of the Great House rooms, they remind me too much of a hotel. Although, for convenience's sake, they are closer to the piano bar/nightclub, swim up bar, and Patois Palace and Feathers restaurants.

    I've read on other boards/trip advisor that there is noise from the road in the garden verandah. I'm wondering about that.. i know some people are more sensitive to that than others. But if its alot of noise, thats a bit of a factor too.

    We have stayed once in GV room....building 6, top floor, last room on the interior side. We did hear road noise, very faintly! We loved the view, overlooking the koi pond and vegetation. I would be booking this room again and again to have the extra day (7 nights ). To me the noise is a factor to each party individually. We also stayed in a OFVS, one time deal for our vow renewal...LOVED IT and if money was not a part of it, we would stay in this room every time. Good luck and enjoy.

    Depends on the location of the room and how light of a sleeper you are. Personally speaking, I could sleep through WWIII so any noise from a passing car is something that I wouldn't even notice above the sound of my own snoring.

    I think it's overblown but everyone is different. After all the sun , fun, and booze, I sleep pretty well. You will hear an occasional car horn but it's not a highway, its a 2 lane road so keep your bathroom window closed and your ac on. The tree frogs give me more trouble than an occasional car horn. Traffic at night is pretty minimal and really, we don't spend much time there during the day.

    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 noisy cart go by, or a group of people may have a loud conversation because they're having a good time. Sometimes people having sex aren't exactly quiet about it. None of this bothers me. You kind of notice it when you first get there, and then you just get used to it. I have actually learned to love the sounds of the resort. If you pay attention, you can tell what time of day it is just by the sounds. Sunset is very quiet for example. People are either quietly watching it, or are in their rooms getting ready for dinner.

    We usually chose an Ocean Verandah Suite because it's centrally located and not that much more $. You avoid the road noise of the GVS which is more than just cars driving by... Jamaicans use their horns A LOT. It's more of a way of communicating to people than a rude gesture like it is in the states. The steady noise of the tree frogs doesn't bother me, but sudden horns honking would. Because the Great House is located in a building at the end of the resort and connected to the restaurant and night club, it's definitely noisier. We've heard very loud music coming from adjacent properties before and thought how glad we were that we were not staying in that building. The beachfront rooms have beautiful views, but lack privacy since the main walkway of the resort passes in front of these rooms. This is why, in our opinion, the OVS is the best option! The only other rooms we've considered are the Atrium Suites because of the hammocks, but I know there are a couple right outside the Palms Restaurant and I wouldn't want to be stuck there. Consider spending a little more on an OVS if you can! As honeymooners, you might be spending a little more time in your room that most people!
