Are we really that laid back?
I have read all types of posts as I prepare for my first adventure to a Couples (CTI in 10 days). Most threads and posts offer suggestions and information about each resort (which I love). Then, there are the complaints about what people experienced while at a Couples resort (I know they are far and few!) So my question is, what are the small things that may bother you while you are vacationing at Couples nothing anyone complains about seems all that big of a deal to me. For example, hanging towels on your balcony posts, loud tourist (American or not), intoxicated people, people bragging about their children, their lives, or generally talking too much, the ride to the resort, problems with excursions, quality of food & staff, having rooms you do not like, etc. Maybe I am one of the people you are complaining about, not sure, but I believe it is easy to have a great, quality vacation without concerning yourself with things you practically cannot control! Your vacation already comes and goes faster than you can blink. Or maybe we are just that laid back? What do you think?
Nothing to complain about
I have visited CSA twice and can barely listen to the Joint on Sirius FM without booking another reservation. Trust me, there is nothing to complain about at CSA! What I notice is that people complain about stuff they didn't bother to research. Some examples might be the distance to the airport or the heat, two things a quick look at a map or a view of the Jamaica tourist webpage might have forewarned. Also, people complain about the creature comforts of the US missing i.e. why do they not have my favorite American beer? If you are going to Jamaica because you want to be in Jamaica and not because you want to be someplace just like where you live --- but where someone else does the cooking, cleaning and the weather is much nicer--- you will have an amazing time at Couples.
