after the red eye
we'll be leaving to csa on a red eye flight from la 2 weeks from tonight and wanted to know how the couples lounge is at making all the sleepiness go away and let the vacation begin.
Does the transportation come right away. how do we find out where the couples lounge is?
anything else we need to know!
have read so much and are really excited!!
...Don't know what time you'll be getting in. But the van is usually there to pick you up within a half hour of your arrival. May be there when you arrive. After you clear Customs, you will be directed to the Resorts area (there are several), with the resort names pretty boldly shown. You can't miss it. It's all fun from there.

Make sure that Couples has your arriving flight info. They will have transportation there and your wait in the lounge is typically fairly short; 5 - 10 minutes or so. Maybe a few minutes longer.
The hallway from the immigration/customs areas spills out into a wider "arrival hall" where several resort and tour companies have offices/desks. As you enter the arrival hall, turn to your left and head to the back wall. The Couples Lounge is in the back corner. They do have restroom facilities if needed. The complimentary Red Stripes are on the left side of the lounge :D.
These previous threads contain pics of the lounge entrance.
After you go through customs, turn left, go down the hall (30 feet), and turn left again. Couples is 50 feet away. You cannot miss it, you have just enough time to change, and grab a bottle of water for the ride.
yes they basically put the red stripe in your hand right there in the lounge...and they encourage you to " drink and drive " my husband and i were double fisted getting on the bus, gladly they make a pit stop cause after those two beers my bladder wasnt having it !!!
what are your dates we will be there oct 10th to 19th with a group of six from northern virginia
The most important thing is to make sure that you go to the lounge under the sign that says "couples resorts". If, while sleep walking, you make a mistake, and go to a different lounge, well ... your vacation won't be that great.:(
Seriously though, we got in on a red-eye and it was easy as pie to get on the van to CTI.
thanks guys! the pics were great! we'll be there from the 4th-8th of oct!
