    I second the Pumpkin soup. Every iteration that I've had at a Couples resort has been phenomenal!

    Yes! We built our own mimosas and bloody marys every morning. I usually went for one of the other fresh fruit juices besides OJ though.

    You can still walk pretty far down the beach if you make a...

    Hmm, I can't recall if there were washcloths or just hand towels, but we managed to wash our faces just fine!

    I'm very bad on a bike. Is the Blue Mountain tour truly mountain/trail biking or more cleared paths gently downhill? :)

    We are hoping to go next April and normally book no more than two months out. It's never been an issue, but we've only been May - October (off season). I'd be giddy to see a similar deal or Secret...

    Wow! The earliest that we've ever booked is 10 *weeks* out. I enjoy my Romance Rewards resort credit though. :)

    Ditto on the small stingless guys during snorkeling. I grew up near the Gulf of Mexico and survived my fair share of jellyfish stings. I also panicked but definitely stingless.

    When we were there in May, we were able to just walk into Lychee twice, no reservation needed and no wait either time. We made the Otaheite reservation with no issue, and the night we were there, it...

    Agree with Wally. Read as much as you can and look at as many pictures as possible as the resorts and towns are very different.

    I dream about pumpkin soup!
    And a place completely built for two.
    Warm air, friendly people, and easy smiles.
    Hummingbirds - birds and beverages.

    Personally, CTI was a great start to the Couples experience for us. We found the north coast resorts to be the most tropical properties. The AN areas at CTI/CSS were definitely more approachable...

    Eyesore? A palm thatched umbrella on a sandy beach is one of my favorite vacation sights! I wish there were more of them... And more cloth hammocks (vs. net) :)

    I'll jump in, too. AJ and Caitlin, currently out of NEPA. Five Couples trips in the books (CTI, CSS x2, CSA, CN) starting back in 2007.

    Hoping for #6 in 2015!

    I knew we couldn't have made him up!! So glad someone else has seen him to confirm our sanity (well, at least that portion).

    When we were there (many moons ago), a saxophone player wandered around the property playing just before and at sunset. At the beach restaurant (dinner), there was a mento band.

    I am beyond pale - translucent is more accurate, so I'm a big palapa fan (part of the draw of SSB for me even). Like, I'd sleep in a tent and eat only fruit and jerk chicken all week if I could have...

    Like said, every Couples is great, and it's just personal preference that separates them for people.
