    Agree with the above. It's about 25% occupancy at the moment at CN (our estimate, not "official") whereas 2 yrs ago when we were here at the same time, it was probably closer to 80%. Several folks...

    We love new places and yet are on our 12th! trip to CN over Christmas. We do "new experiences" in the summer and CN in the winter. Works for us. :)

    Shuttles to Couples run about every 30 minutes. It appears to be either when they have sufficient people to fill a bus or folks have waited a max of 30 mins (sometimes there were only 2 couples in...

    We're going back for visit #12 in two weeks. We travel all over the world and yet keep returning to Couples. Why? Not because it's the most extravagant resort in the world. Rather, it's because...

    We've done the group bus many times and the private shuttle twice. The group bus can be fine, but it all depends on your fellow travelers -- which can be from one to six couples. If anyone wants to...

    We arrived on a Saturday in April. The immigration/customs line started AT THE PLANE -- literally. You walked off of the jet bridge and into the line. We would easily have been in the line for 3...

    Here's a compromise that my husband uses: He wears slacks (khakis) and a polo shirt on the plane. It's not hard when you're coming from cold weather and, even during summer, the plane can be a bit...

    I noticed this too. $2000 - $3000 isn't just a slight increase. While we CAN afford it, we can also afford to find something more reasonably priced. In the past, the week before Christmas was...

    Here's the issue as I see it. Some folks get up at the crack of dawn to reserve chairs (typically at the pool) that are highly desirable for some reason -- location, umbrella, etc. No problem if...

    CN Review -- Dec 2012

    Visited CN over Christmas. It was our 9th visit and, as with the others, terrific. There’s a reason we keep returning and will do so again in 2014. Rather than capture our entire visit, will focus...

    We just spent 8 days at CN . . . this time there were no rowdy groups. Honestly, it's really luck or the draw (or lack thereof). However, you can always sit at the beach (very nice!) or choose a...

    Negril beach is perfect. Seriously. However, you cannot walk the same distance at CN as you can at CSA b/c CN is on Bloody Bay whereas CSA...

    We had a first floor room in Bldg 2 the first time we went to CN (8 times ago). It overlooked the spa. It was super quiet -- very peaceful.
