New things (to us) from late January 2015:
White cabinet (w/ doors being added) block 1 side of boardwalk at BG bar
Piano Bar stools – painted a new color
No-slip strips on block...
I, too, am not sure what Couples can do about it, but do see articles periodically about Negril and the "Noise Abatement Act".
There is a long-standing struggle between hotel operators and...
We were there when the procedure changed. For the record, not sure we are fans of it, but at the same time, it seems Couples just can't win.
We asked about the change and were told by management...
We haven't done it in a few years, but at that time it was a walk along the pathways of the property and the Groundskeeping Manager (Mr Tomlinson) would give a talk on the various trees, plants,...
G&P, not sure how you missed it. Having too much fun maybe? We thought maybe the turn-down coaster was a temporary shortage. Good to know - we like them.
Coloradojuli - thanks. We heard the info...

Also - nice video in the link. At that 1:44 mark is that Carrie talking to the former CRO in the background?

Welcome Carrie and congratulations.
BG = Beach Grill. I tend to type fast/shorthand when at CN and the sun is coming up. :)
Okeno hurt his arm playing soccer in the CN tournament across the street. Can't recall if it was severe...
new tings Sept 2014
BG went "ala carte" on Sunday 28 of Sept. - sit down and waitress/waiter takes order.
(no calamari on the menu when we were there, though)
Piano bar renovations
We know that Block 1 and 2 were completed already.
The last week of Sept/Early Oct., blocks 6, 3 and 4 were closed for work.
In early Sept. people reported Cassava (near block 6) was closed b/c...
BG is ala carte.
Shauna, Bellard, Deen. (Keno is out w/ some arm injury)
Think Kiev is on leave.
new piano bar refurb. Wall couch w/ new cushions, etc. Window shades are...
tapestry is surprisingly thick, so we're thinking on it.
will move rest of new things to CNmeetup
Beach Grill is ala carte, as of ~2 days ago. No buzzer, no cards, less stress on the chefs.
Sit, order from the menu, and enjoy.
more new tings later.
Oh... it rains some times.

Have posted many times over the years on Grouples vs Couples and won't repeat here, other then to reiterate, not a fan of Grouples.
However, I don't think anything has changed policy-wise. Has...
I just read an article about a planned attraction that will take customers on a submarine that will depart from the "Ocho Rios Cruise Ship terminal to a dive site near Sans Souci".
Hunger for Palapas?
Game of Palapas?
Girl With The Couples Tattoo?

Brian & Heather... sounds like missingCN. Friends with Lew & Mike I think. Welcome back!
and if different Mike/Heather...well... welcome back!
The island-wide jet ski ban has been lifted as of Friday July 18.
Sigh. Oh well, at least they (Maritime Authority of Jamaica) appear to be putting in some restrictions.

Article on Couples' donation in the paper.
With a picture of Kemar!!
Nice job Couples.
"Couples Resort donates playground (equipment) to Green Island Primary"...
Here is the specific page showing (incorrectly I believe) the repeater dinner to be at Otaheite, to which I presume SuzyQ was referring:
the website may well show that, but the repeater dinner has been moved to Lychee for the past few years (unless space/weather allows outdoor seating).
In our experience it has always been on...

We see some pictures on Couples' FB that show a banner with:
"Couples Negril 2012-2013 Staff Awards, Rewarding Excellence".
(Kind of hard to find b/c they are buried in with many other photos).
