I agree 100% with Wally. We had been to CN 3 times when we decided to try the other side of the island. We chose CTI because I had heard so much about the "Grand Lady". We found CTI to have a hotel feel to it and not a resort. There are not winding pathways to roam like there are at CN. We ended up switching over to CSS and loved the resort. There are several pathways hidden throughout the entire resort that are wonderful for strolls along the pathways with your love. The beach is nowhere as nice as CN, but if you are going to be able to spend 5 days also at CN, I think the beach will be just fine. We are headed back in 2011 and will spend a week at CSS and then head over to CN for a week. CSS is the cat's meow.
I also like CSS's rooms better than CTI's. CSS's rooms are all suites with all day room service. It was really fun to order a bottle of champagne to the room to drink while we were getting ready for dinner. The final night we were there we ordered room service and enjoyed a romantic dinner on our balcony before we started packing. CSS is very special. And the resort is so spread out and there are very few guests that you feel like you have the place to yourself. The beach was never crowded nor were the restaurants. Several times at CTI we had problems finding a table for meals.
