Hey guys. My wife and I have never been to a Couples resort but are thinking about going in February 2012. We're thinking about CTI or CSS. I know they're both nice, but how do they compare? Thanks again.
We have been to both and we love both CTI and CSS.
Both have wonderful food, drinks, atmosphere and incredible staff.
CSS has more pools, more steps to climb (built on a cliffside), a larger property, 2 beaches (main beach and separate AN beach with a wonderful pool, bar, grill, restrooms, hot tub).
CTI has a really cool art deco-ish vibe, smaller but lush property, a veggie bar with wonderful snacks, a separate AN island with a small pool, bar and they bring lunch over, the island is really cool with private sunning areas, a sandy ocean floor area to access for snorkeling.
For a first trip, I would choose CSS. But sign up for romance rewards and you can go over and visit CTI for a day while you are there (the resorts are minutes away from one another). We have been to CSS about 7 times I think, CN once and CTI once (but are returning to CTI this Friday!!! Wooooohooooo!
