    Mufty, I can only help with some of this, but I suspect others will chime in. Typically, there is one dive in the morning and one in the afternoon (at CSA, they are, I think, at 8:30 and 1:00). If...

    I know Feathers typically has two different menus during the week, but I can't find anything that notes when the menu changes. I'm trying to plan my trip for two nights at Feathers, but am hoping to...

    I'm sure you'll get a lot of responses and different opinions, but I personally would not consider moving to a Great House Suite an "upgrade." That is the one room category that has a "hotel" feel...

    You should probably try calling Couples directly to ask about a booking that far out. At least in the past, they would book by phone farther out then you could book on the website. You'll likely...

    1. Yes, CSA provides beach towels.
    2. WiFi is theoretically available throughout the resort, but depending on where your room is located, you may find you have great coverage, no coverage, or...

    I can help with part of this. As long as you take the Couples transportation, it couldn't be much easier to get from one of the resorts in Ocho Rios to one of the resorts in Negril. Couples will...

    As others have said, if you decide to stay on the boat, you will not be the only one. And you should definitely take the trip, regardless of whether you plan to get in the water. The "swimming"...

    I play golf, but admittedly have not played during any of my trips to Couples. My understanding is that the course, while perfectly fine, is not the type of course that one might write home about. ...

    When we did it, the trip was to The Sands (attached to The Caves), and we thought it was well worth it. It was pretty low key, but they had a bar, someone grilling jerk chicken, and a place you...

    I think this answers your question. It seems that different resorts "call" to different people, and if CSA is the one calling to you, that's the one you should visit. Why? Because no matter how...
