Heading to CSA on July 2nd on our Honeymoon! 2nd trip to Jamaica, first time to Negril and Couples!
I wanted to bump this thread, and also to Thank EVERYONE for their posts! I am an admitted message board addict, and all of your tips and secrets have made the long stress filled wedding planning easier (with getting to marry my best friend, and going to CSA within 3days, I feel like I'm hitting the Jackpot)! Thanks and any additional posts are appreciated!
One love Cpuff
Just under a year until we return! This thread is getting me so excited!
Running barefoot along the beach is something I can't wait to do again. Then come back and drink a coconut from sea grapes. When that's done, have them make you a smoothie and take it to the bar to put a bit of rum in!!! Perfection
Breakfast on the beach!! We ordered our room service bright and early one morning, secured ourselves a palapa, then carried our breakfast tray out to the sand for a lovely shaded breakfast with a breathtaking view! Just remember not to bring anything breakable with you. Also to make breakfast extra special, order sparkling wine in your mini bar for morning mimosas in bed!
If you're a kitty lover, don't forget to bring some packets of kitty food and request a 1st floor room. We had about 5-6 regulars drop by and hang out on our patio. But beware, they have the "Puss in Boots" look mastered and we went through our packets in the first 2 days lol. We ended up making several trips to the convenience store across the street from the Greathouse to grab sardines for them. On our last day I'd made one more trip for them and when I crossed the street back to CSA a pregnant one who had actually followed me came running up, then she escorted me the whole way back to the room - pretty adorable!
We had read to bring Heinz from home but found the Grace to be very tasty too! My favorite snack at the Cabana Grill was onion rings dipped in a mixture of A-1 & Grace Ketchup - perfect if you have the munchies.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE CSA (as well an CSS and CN)...
> Be sure to eat at Seagrapes for lunch on Mon, Tues, and/or Wed and enjoy some of the absolutely freshest best Fish Taco's and what an enjoyable place to dine.
> Take a break-of-dawn walk along the beach -- an amazing way to start your day.
> Order Lion Fish at Feathers -- a wonderful rare treat. (If unsure, as if you could get a small sample plate for your table).
> Browse through the 100 listed martini's at the Martini Bar. On our first trip we set a goal that between us we would pace ourselves and try everyone over our 7-day visit. Needless to say we did not get very far. First you discover one that you want to get another and another, and then you discover how crooked the sidewalks really are trying to get back to your room.
> Be sure to sign up for Couple Romance Rewards on line (no cost), give the front desk your Romance Rewards number and then sign-up to do a swap day at Couples Negril
> Take advantage of the Couples Sports Complex (across the street) -- Fantastic tennis courts, gym, Yoga classes, track, lap pool, hand-ball and racket-ball courts, health bar, etc. And tennis, and fitness lessons are included is requested -- excellent pro's.
> And the greatest secret of all is your SPOUSE.
While our Fall trip (in 9 days) is to CN this year, we will do a trade-day and visit CSA on a Fish-Taco day.
See Elvis for any water sports (the paid ones) you want to do...tell him Ricky and Suzi sent you. . Elvis can help out with anything you need!
Veggie chips with amazing dips at Seagrapes. Aforementioned ice cream machine (opens at 11 am) now at Seagrapes. Colinette for all spa treatments including wedding hair and makeup. (tell her Suzi sent you)... She's amaaaaazing!
Talk to Jimmy and buy your handmade jewelry from him...he's there Wednesday by the Palms and I think Saturday on the walkway. Bring him a glass of juice!
Make sure to catch the spectacular sunsets...take Avon Skin So Soft with you as the mosquitoes are there at dusk.
