    It's a Chilean brand called "Frontera", I think. All their house wines are pretty awful, imho (Chile does not seem capable of producing quality wines at a low price point, in my experience). It's...

    Normally perhaps, but not true at all the week we were there (3/20-3/27). It was rather windy and the waves could be heard even with the balcony doors closed! We slept with them open several nights...

    A few quick observations:

    1) Having been to CSA and CTI, I would consider each to be a solid 4-star resort. So to compare them to a 5-star resort is misguided.

    2) Anyone expecting fairy-tale...

    You can look up the Ocho Rios port schedule to see when cruise ships are in dock, or just ask at the Excursion Desk at the resort. They should know.

    Take it from someone who's an expert on this topic: these are all great suggestions. I too recommend drinking a glass of water after every alcoholic drink. At CTI I actually requested a cranberry &...

    We were able to check in online both ways (US-Jamaica). No restrictions on it being international. The airlines are charging now for the best seats, however, and the exit rows are often reserved...

    We also had an Ocean Jr. Suite at CTI recently. We actually requested a room change from Block 2, and were given a room in Block 3. What a difference! Be sure to request something in Block 3 if...

    We just got back from CTI, and the beach is still damaged a bit but it's not terribly noticeable, and in fact it's smoothed out somewhat already. There are still several "steps" where the beach will...
