We loved it and want to move there. RESPECT
We booked a Great House Suite , but upon arrival and without requesting they moved us to a Garden Ver. Suite. I was concerned about internet access , but I was able to hold a signal from the Garden Room. The room was very clean and the bed was comfy (we are picky about beds). The a/c worked great , we love a cold room. The mini bar was cool. 5 bottles of liq. - 6 pack of Carib beer (I bought my own red stripe from accross the street , no hassle at all) water , pepsi , and my new favorite drink TING soda. Housekeeping was amazing.
I did kill about 10 mosqitoes in the room during our stay. They waited be the back door of the balcony and I think they might have been able to sneak in through the door seals. If I was seeking permanent residence here I would seal the doors better.
The beach and ocean. Oh my God , basically. I have never spent more time on the beach and in the water than I did here. Before noon , the water was like glass. People water ski - its that smooth.
I love the locals offering things for sale on the beach. They are only allowed to operate and walk on the coast line. Just understand who they are(broke beach bums) and why they are doing what they are doing(make money to eat). Ignoring them is rude - If you dont want anything just tell them no thanks or you are good. We kept a little cash on hand at the beach to buy things from them. A reggae band was strolling around one day too - Paid them $5 for two awesome songs!
Jet skis - If you are facing the ocean , go with the company on your left. He was much nicer, cheaper and had better sea doo's. He did $40for 30 minutes and the other guy wouldnt come off of $60 for 30minutes. The guy on the left also has some amazing Jamaican wild flowers too ;-) The staff at Couples told me to enjoy my flowers in my room or on balcony only. Respect
Food - Very good. Its pretty amazing whats included. I was expecting more run of the mill type meals , but thats just not the case. They serve high end meals for breakfast lunch and dinner. We ate around 830pm nightly so we could enjoy the (9pm) entertainment as we ate.
The super bowl watch party on the beach was so cool. Huge projection screens on the beach. They brought in Red Stipe vendors, a huge buffet on the beach , you could wager on the game , etc.
Cat. Cruise was fantastic. The length of the cruise and stopping to swim near Ricks was great. They have a slide off the top of the boat too. Rasta Ralphie provided the entertainment on the cruise. I wish I would have brought cash to buy one of his tshirts. Red Stripe and Rum punch were served (included) - 3 hour tour - no cost
Did I mention the beach and ocean? Wow. Plenty of loungers and the resort was rather full.
We are booking our next trip to CSA for my wifes 30th birthday. I am looking at the other couples resorts and reviews , but I dont know...we loved CSA. main things important to us are beach and ocean quality.
