My husband and I will be staying at CSS in November so of course I've been reading tripadvisor. There have a few reviews that talk of tipping various staff members and of algae in the ocean. I've stayed at both CN and CSA and tipping was not permitted. In fact, I was told staff could be fired if tips were accepted. I do realize that the beach at CSS won't be like those of Negril, but an algae bottom? Thanks for any information.
