    Some of the wandering musicians start to show up a little before lunchtime, and Iceblock is typically not in that first wave. You can expect him to roll in from the south on or after 1, and work his...

    I think having an online option would be great, as long as the ability to complete comment cards at the resort is preserved. Speaking only for myself, I do a better job of remembering names and...

    Having also been to Antigua and St. Lucia and Aruba, the specific island doesn't matter much to me. Of the 3 I mentioned, I think St. Lucia comes closest to the Jamaican vibe people like, and I can...

    Jamaica is in the tropics, so while the numbers may vary, there are always mosquitoes. If my wife and I were thinking of having children, I just wouldn't go. Yes, the odds of getting infected are...

    We love CSA. But given the limitations on mobility, the more compact CN is definitely the way to go. It is a fine resort with a great beach. We prefer CSA but it's a lot more walking around, which is...

    We were there during the last week of February and didn't notice any appreciable difference in the food. I did notice that the kitchen at Patois was extremely slow, but at least they got everything...

    I just bring a pair of Dockers, and then go back and change after dinner. I am not put out by that. I wish they'd never opened this can of worms by allowing dress jeans, and I wouldn't be surprised...

    I wouldn't worry about noise because it's everywhere. If you are in a beachfront you can hear the equipment grooming the beach very early in the day. Wherever you are, you will occasionally hear a...

    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...

    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...
