Just returned from our 8 couples trip and 3rd to CN. Last visit was 2007 to CN so it has been 3 years.
As usual the staff, food and drinks were terrific.
What we noticed that has changed or been added for the good:
Lychees is terrific. We have been to lemon Grass at CSA so expected the same, but having a second indoor resteraunt with AC at CN is awesome. Even better yet is you don't need reservations like you do at CSA. The food there is terrific.
On the end of the boardwalk between the swim-up bar and the beach grill they have added three outdoor couches. Again this is terrific, especially for watching the movie on the beach or bonfire.
What has changed for the bad:
The boardwalk needs to be replaced. It is a heavily traveled area and splinters ae a definite concern.
The resort next door (if facing the ocen, then on the left) i believe was a Grand Lido. It was purchased by Breezes and thats not good. Loud hip-hop and rap music is what we heard both on the beach and in the water along with a DJ. who used the F'bomb every other word, as they has wet-t shirt, skimpy bikini and to use his words Big Booty contets. Saturday the music was loudest.
The only other noticebale change was the beach grill. In the past you just waited until they called out your order but now you get the red flash lightt hing that vibrates. Some like it and some don't. I am in the don't catergory as it reminds me of Olive Garden or Red Lobster and not the no worry Jamaican pace i am use to.
All in all we had a great time, but next year we will stay at CSA due to the Breezes issue.
