    Pam Lawson emailed me about a group in Negril that takes care of the dogs. If you want to check them out on Facebook, do a search for "Negril Small Spay & Neuter Clinics."

    Thanks for the info, Michelle. Yet, just last week I saw a cat with four young kittens as well as a very young pregnant cat. Perhaps if guests could contribute to a fund for this they could do it...

    It's my understanding that rabies does not exist in Jamaica. The animals, however, could still carry fleas and ticks. I did notice one of the dogs had an eye infection.

    The presence of the cats and dogs doesn't bother me. Although one did camp out under a palapa with us, @fawnridge. :) He didn't take up much room so we didn't mind, of course. It's the growing...

    Dogs and Cats at CSA

    Just returned from our fifth trip to CSA and everything was wonderful. My only concern is regarding the growing number of cats on the property as well as dogs roaming the beach. It seems to be...

    We've never had anyone say "No" to us at Couples for anything we've asked. I think if they have any signs by the pool regarding swimming it's just to deter people from partying loudly late at night....

    We always stay in an OVS and think it's well worth the upgrade because it's more centrally located and quiet. We always request a third floor room and have always received it. I think most people...

    I have to mention that one of the things I can't wait to do again is make Tres Leches cake using rum cream! It was soooo good! If you're not familiar with the cake, it's a dense spongecake that is...

    I'm in my 40's and a bit pudgy all around. I feel the same as you and would never wear a two-piece at home, but have to tell you... bring a couple two-piece bathing suits with you! Once you are there...

    Good to know, John_NH. Sunshine Liquor was closed when we were there as well and the other place (the walk-through one) didn't have Sangsters. We were very sad.

    Last time we went, they didn't sell Sangsters rum cream at the airport anymore (that was May 2014). Has anyone seen it since? I'm not as much of a fan of the Wray and Nephew. I agree that it's...

    Someone on TripAdvisor posted that scuba wasn't available at CSA on the weekend. Is that true? Something new? I know it was available 2x a day all the other times we've been there.

    Prior to our last visit (April 2014), I can honestly say that we never had any negative experiences (3 prior visits to CSA and one to CTI). The last one was the whammy where it all hit at once.

    That doesn't make any sense to me. How would it be offensive to say, "No thank you. At Couples we have a no tipping policy." -- rather than let the guests believe that the tip is being accepted?
