    Don't be afraid to leave the resort, even if it's just a walk down the beach. CSA is just a microcosm of Negril and Jamaica - it would be a shame to go all that way and stay in a fishbowl, though a...

    It's not an Atrium suite without a hammock, as far as we're concerned. We prefer any surrounding the wedding gazebo grounds.

    Nightlife doesn't have to happen on the resort. While we love all of Jamaica, we usually stay in Negril because it has the vibe we enjoy. When we want AI, we prefer CSA for it's beach location and...

    Ossie's, which is basically across the road just to the south of CSA. Classic roadside jerk stand vibe, fantastic jerk pork in combination with traditional rice and peas. Ya mon!

    No love for 3 Dives or Eddie's De Bar?!
    Every trip to Jamaica winds up being some sort of jerk tour for us as we can never get enough. Our first stop is always in Green Island on our way to Negril...

    Agreed. This is the one thing that is disappointing, though all of the AI spots do the same thing. If you check out some of the non-AI establishments, you'll find the local flavor. We simply go...

    Everyone should venture off the reservation at least once and head up to the cliffs. It's a whole different vibe from the beach. Ivan's for the 100 Candles is our choice but you need to reserve it...

    Pelican Bar is truly a unique experience but probably not for everyone. If you have an adventurous streak, definitely. It's rustic with a capital R. I'd recommend hiring a private driver - one or two...

    Margaritaville is just like any other bar in the states and way overpriced IMHO. Rick's also has crazy prices and if you're going to see the cliff jumpers, you'll likely see the same ones on the...

    Encountered violinist Aaron Meyer at CSA several years ago, who was there for a friend's wedding and played afterwards. Later, he brought the house down at the talent competition.

    Oh you lucky folks! El Dorado is excellent but not available here. Definitely would be my first choice outside of Jamaica. Their aged rums (12, 15, 21 year old) are spectacular.

    And yet another nod to Ivan's. If you're looking to really impress, ask them about the 100 candles dinner.

    Atrium is the only option for us. Seemingly less traffic, the style of the room and the hammock are perfect for us. Remember though that the Atriums do not have a TV. If you're not willing to...

    We've never stayed in anything BUT an Atrium. Nothing better IMHO. The hammock on the porch is a great spot to nap during an afternoon rain shower.
