I thought CSS was more laid back than CTI, but the week we were there, there was a wedding so that might have added to the liveliness of the resort that week. Both resorts have swim up bars.
The ride to CSS or CTI is about 1 hour 45 minutes, so about the same time as it took to get to CN. The ride to CTI/CSS is along a highway and doesn't go through all the little towns like the ride to CN.
We prefer CSS as it felt more romantic to us, plus there are lots of winding pathways where you can get lost with your honey. Neither one has the fabulous beach like CN and we did miss the beach.
CTI felt more like a high-rise hotel to us while the rooms at CSS are tucked away all over the resort. CTI is more compact than CSS and CSS has a ton of stairs as it is built on a cliff.
CTI offers horseback riding and catamaran cruise as part of it's all inclusive. Both offer Dunn's River Falls.
If I was running away for four days just to spend time with my honey, I'd choose CSS. It just felt like a more intimate resort to us.
