    I think that this is a very important point to remember when you think about your vacation experience. Almost all, if not all, of my less than positive experiences have been the result of behavior by...

    Thank you for sharing those facts. We always go in late February......and have been for 27 years, arriving Saturday. So, your number crunching aligns closely with our experience.

    Just want to mention that CSS also doesn't have an issue with any vendors. It will have been newly remodeled (it's almost done as I type this). Coincidentally, my wife and I renewed our vows there on...

    I'm sure the Jamaicans will be wanting to tune in to see the Packers win as well.

    This is disturbing. Rules that are not enforced are not really rules at all.

    In my experience, the CN has a FEW less vendors walking the beach than CSA does. The resorts are different in other ways too, but based on the criteria you provided, the small difference in the...

    On our first visit to Jamaica, in 1988, we stayed in a standard room in one of the high rises in Ocho Rios. It grabbed me when I stood outside on our tiny little balcony at dusk, and heard the sounds...

    I just realized that we stayed in Room 1116 ourselves. It was the last week in February of this year. At first we were a little concerned due the proximity to the lobby, but that ended up not being a...

    I did not know that about the catamaran cruise. I'm sorry Jamaica was not to your liking. I say Jamaica on purpose, because Couples as well as every other resort has very limited control over the...

    The beach bar we frequent at CSA plays reasonably contemporary reggae music. We enjoy freaking out the bartenders by knowing who the artists are. But, people who don't like it can easily locate away...

    We've been on it twice. In addition to Lenbert being very responsible and responsive, you're in a crowd of fellow tourists. Jamaica can seem a little intimidating to folks who've never been there...

    Zara, I'm not 100% sure of this, but I think if you let managers know at any of the resorts, they might be willing to arrange to have someone pick you up in a golf cart and take you places. And, I...

    A couple of different guests brought bluetooth speakers to the beach at CSA last February. Two young ladies, in particular, had theirs on at a high enough volume that it was clearly audible several...

    I liked the calendar format also. They said it wasn't coming back. I have to say I took a little offense at the tone, but they didn't bring it back and I believe they won't. So I believe our choice...

    Or, we could wait for the professionals at Couples to evaluate their test at Palms and make a business decision based on the results. Which they will do.

    That's why it's good that they're doing this on a trial basis. I believe that Couples management knows how to evaluate pilot programs like this, and will be paying attention to how this changes their...

    Leave the fan at home. The room has good A/C, and a ceiling fan with, as I recall, 3 speed settings above the bed. I like it cool and last year on the first night, I actually had to turn the AC...

    Every now and then someone will express concern about being a little too old. They are welcome and so are you. People are too busy having a good time to give it much thought, really.

    They're not a romantic couple, are they? If they are not, I don't think they fit the definition of a couple in the sense of the theme of the resort. Basically, your hubby seems to be saying that any...

    I don't like it when the cost of my vacation goes up anymore than anyone else. But that doesn't make the owners greedy. They're business people. They'll price the rooms for what the market will bear,...
