Do people read before they book?
Just a small annoyance to vent about here where I know people will understand! I'm reading the trip advisor reviews on both CN and CSA as we are returning to one of them next February (we have been to CN, never to CSA).
I am so surprised by the reviews of people complaining that their CN room didn't have an ocean view, or didn't have a hammock, or whatever...Everywhere you go to book (expedia, couples website, travel agent sites, etc...), it clearly states that none of the rooms are 'ocean front' and that the rooms might be obscured by foliage. I just don't understand people complaining about things that with proper research they could have easily found out! Maybe I'm different, but I don't plunk down the amount of money it costs to go to couples without thoroughly researching the resort and room category!
Heck, I've BEEN to CN, and I'm reading the reviews to refresh my memory and to see if anything is 'new'. (We were last there in 2007).
My advice to people thinking about booking is to do your research so that you know that the Atrium suites at CSA don't have televisions, or that the regular rooms at CN don't have hammocks on the balcony!
I'd was also frankly surprised at the number of people complaining about people smoking/selling marijuana on the beach. It doesn't have to be your thing (it's certainly not mine), but I was aware that I was going to JAMAICA, so I came with a more open minded mindset.
Geesh...some of those trip advisor reviews make me want to scream.
For what it's worth...I have been researching islands and other AI's for 2 weeks for my 40th birthday trip next year because I thought I 'should' do something different than I've already done. I kept telling my husband "this is nice, but it doesn't have xyz that couples does"....this was a common theme. Finally, my husband said, "Why don't we just go back to couples where we KNOW we love it!?"...so we are! Now I just have to decide between CN and CSA...and the trip advisor reviews are making me crazy ;-)
