Club Mobay

We are getting married on Saturday and headed to Jamaica for the first time next Wednesday, we are super excited! We want to make this the most relaxing vacation and I have been reading about Club Mobay. I know we have the complimentary shuttle from the airport to the resort but I've read that you can avoud the hour customs line and only wait about 20 minutes if you do Club Mobay. But I don't want to be shuttled off and have the resort pick up not be able to find us or if it's not so bad do we really need it? Outgoing what do you think? Thanks everyone!

The Government of Jamaica wants to build 2 large rubble mound breakwaters in the tourist resort of Negril, to stop beach erosion. History has shown that hard structures like these actually end up causing more erosion than they prevent. Expensive to build and to maintain, the rubble mound breakwaters will be an eyesore and ruin the beautiful sunsets seen from this most western part of the island. There is also concern that these proposed rubble mound structures will damage the existing reef and boulders could be washed ashore during storms/hurricanes. Negril is a small resort town and 24 truckloads daily of boulders being trucked in and taken by barge to be dropped in the crystal clear waters that exist there now will certainly impact local businesses. The stakeholders and residents of the community want environmentally sound solutions and are calling for beach nourishment and the restoration of the morass to combat erosion. Please sign to say NO BREAKWATERS IN NEGRIL!

CSA Palapa hoarding!

Being an early riser I was always surprised to find all of the palapa's already reserved. Figuring it was always the early bird that catches the worm, I congratulated those who were up before 6am daily on their vacation.

Two nights ago after Showtime at the Palms my wife an I decided to take a late night beach stroll. We were surprised to find that all but one of the palapas already had the requisite reservation items of towels and bad magazines in place. Have we been naive for more than a decade? Is the new technique to place items on the chairs as soon as watersports has done their "straightening up" run just before sunset?

Perhaps management should go the S route and auction palapas reservations off to the highest bidder via eBay to offset some of the planned rate increases?

Video of the remodeled B-12 room at Sans Souci

This is how all the rooms in A Block and B Block will look after the renovations scheduled to be completed by October, 2015. The new room is more spacious; much more open. Gone are the hot tubs and the room divider in the bedroom. The bathroom looks much bigger. What do you think of the new look?

Recent Reviews

This will be our first trip to CSA or any Couples Resort so I've been anxiously reading every review on TA that I can find. I have read several now that say there are some staff who have sour attitudes and act like they don't want to be there. Should I be concerned?

I also read that some guests are secretly tipping although I see there is a strict no tipping policy. Are we to tip or not to tip?
