    I would definitely recommend Atrium if you don't care about TV's. We've stayed in both Atriums and GVS, and Atriums just have much more of a tropical, open feel about them. For what it's worth,...

    We've found St. Lucia, Antigua, and Aruba to be very interesting and enjoyable, and all for different reasons. We have not, however, found a resort that we enjoy as much as CSA. St Lucia in...

    No worries. We're 61, been to CSA numerous times, and never really noticed how old anyone was.

    We've stayed in 4 different room categories at CSA, and we were able to hear couples enjoying themselves in all of them. Don't know about you, but it makes me smile.

    I guess it's a sign the economy is improving, at least for some. I don't like price increases any more than anyone else, but if Couples can sell all their rooms for a higher price, that's just the...

    I've only been in February or March. The weather has always been very good, and CSA and CSS never seem crowded. We choose the later date because Spring is right around the corner when we have to...

    I'd like to add that we stayed in those 3 room categories in 5 of the last 6 years and we never missed having TV's in them. To the extent that we thought about it at all, it was to marvel at how...

    Coincidentally, my wife talked me into buying a bottle a few weeks ago. Just tonight she tried to palm it off on our son and his friend. So, thumbs down from us!

    I have seen mixed reviews about the Great House rooms. The GVS rooms are fine, although they also have gotten a few mixed reviews due to proximity to road noise. I suggest you check in and see how...

    Typically it falls into a pattern. Sunny all morning, clouds gather, sometime between about 1:30 and 3:30 it rains anywhere from 15 minutes to 1 1/2 hours. We plan for it with other, fun, indoor...

    Once you decide where and when you want to go, book right away. I wouldn't be surprised if some room categories are booked up already, so there is nothing to gain by waiting.

    My wife and I had the pleasure of staying in Room 1128 in mid-February. It's the only PBFS we've stayed in, but I can tell you it was totally awesome. We had the entire first floor to ourselves. 2nd...

    We work out regularly, and always bring some workout sportswear with us. Then we don't work out while we're there. Ever. Still, the stuff is light, and one of these years we'll have an all day rain...

    That pretty much matches my experience from 2 weeks ago. Palms was the best it's ever been imo. And I don't remember ever seeing the beach this wide, so better enjoy it while you can.

    This is awesome. We just booked an atrium for the end of February. I feel fortunate to have checked the message board today, as I expect a lot of people who were on the fence will jump now.

    My instinct is to help first-timers out if they ask for it. I don't think it's a repeater thing. It's a personality thing. When someone's rude, it's just who they are, no matter if it's their first...

    You can still get a glass of foam. I figured out how to avoid it. Just have the tap opening as far inside your glass as possible. Initially it foams a bit but stops as soon as the beer level reaches...

    CSA Review 2/15-2/23

    Arrived at the airport at 12:15 pm. Cleared immigration and customs very quickly, grabbed a beer at the Couples Lounge and our shuttle was already rolling by 1:15. Reached CSA by about 2:30 and...

    You shouldn't do it for the resort staff. They'll likely be terminated if they're caught accepting a tip. Several have told me so, and I don't know why they'd say it if it wasn't true.

    I think the Atriums are the best value in the resort. They have more of a traditional, tropical feel about them than the Great House, or Ocean Verandahs for that matter.

    That brochure applied only to Couples Ocho Rios (now CTI). I know this because we stayed at Swept Away in 1998, before Couples acquired it. We saw the construction at Couples Negril, and stayed there...
