The beach at CSS is deep with soft deep sand, but getting into the ocean is not like CN. There are rocks for a few feet out and the water is a bit chilly from the river rushing into the ocean. We found the current to be a bit strong and if you weren't careful would push you quite a bit out into the ocean. Once you get past the river and the rocks, the water is warm, but the bottom of the ocean has sea grass. It does make for some fun snorkeling, but the stuff grosses me out.
Now, the pool at CSS is what makes the beach so awesome. We loved the pool. It is big enough that you can take a floatie in the pool and float around.
We love CN and being able to float for hours in the ocean. We found that we couldn't do that at CSS, but the pool sufficed. I will say that we love both resorts and will return to both, but you can't beat the beaches in Negril.
