    The only time I've been to a Margaritaville in Jamaica is the one in the airport while waiting to leave. Always the saddest part of the trip :P That type of experience is not why I go to CSA. If I...

    At CSA there is an eight sided rotary display of popular mixed drinks at all the bars. 2 sides of it are non-alcoholic concoctions, plus I'm sure all the bartenders could de-alcoholize any drink. We...

    At CSA the minibar was pre-stocked with Carib, bottled water, pepsi/diet pepsi, and some juices. There was a checklist for me to add liquor. I got my rum and red wine, but they were out of Highland...

    The bay is nothing but sand. It is the equivalent of an oceanic desert. Nothing there to attract sharks unless your last name is Brody and you are from Amity :P

    Yeah, that would be a VERY well trafficked beach! There is a family resort right next to CSA and all sorts of other resorts off the other end, it wouldn't be private at all. Otherwise they'd have to...
