    We have been to CSA five times, and have only seen CN through two Trading Places days, which does not likely give it a fair comparison. I did notice the effects of CN's more compact layout, and...

    Like others, I'd recommend either CSA or CN if "lazing on the beach" will be your main activity. I can't speak for CTI, but the CSS beach, for us, did not compare with the soft sand and clear water...

    1. I think the Garden Verandah Suites offer the broadest range of possible rooms, since you can be in the new or old section, and spread anywhere across the resort. Unless you are really hoping for...

    I've been to both CSA (five times) and CSS (once). Given the numbers, you can probably guess my suggestion. But in reality, it comes down to what things are most important to you. The good news is...

    I just got back from CSA a week ago, and while I can understand where OP is coming from, I really do think the key issue is expectations and what makes you happy when on vacation. I was also in an...

    Thanks. We'll take the school supplies and may pick up some rubber balls, etc. as well.
  7. School Supplies (again) & One Love Bus Tour

    I've searched the board and have found some old threads on these subjects, but I had two questions regarding school supplies.

    1. We will be at CSA and plan to take some pencils, erasers, etc. ...

    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...

    Feathers Menu Change

    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...

    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...
