Hello All! What a wonderful forum! So many helpful and infomative people sharing the love from the time they spent at CSA was a big factor in my wife and I deciding to do our wedding vow renewal there. Now, we haven't been on vacation since we got married at sandals Ocho Rios 9 years ago, so for our 10th, we;re going back to Jamaica! We plan to renew our vows at CSA the week of Jan 23-30 2012 and we want to do it just right.
Room and location. It sounds like the atrium rooms are the hidden secret of CSA. We are going to book in early March to take advantage of the offer, but we are stuck on room type. What are the pros and cons of Atrium vs a Beachfront Verandah? The beachfront sounds amnazing, but the way people go on about atrium rooms, it sounds like they are the spot, and much cheaper. What's the deal? Best tip I've read so far is to go 2nd or 3rd floor beachfront so the room is away from the people walking by and the view is better.
Next, how are the renewals? We assume rules about the legality don't apply, but we could be wrong. What are the good spots to have the ceremony?
Is there a basketball court?
Do you have to swim 8 laps of the pool before you can SCUBA?
How far away is Blue Hole?
How far away is the Pelican Bar?
How is the nighlife in Negril? Is it safe/fun?
I know we're asking a lot, we hope to hear from all of you. Thanks to all who have contributed such wonderful information already....
