    That's why it's good that they're doing this on a trial basis. I believe that Couples management knows how to evaluate pilot programs like this, and will be paying attention to how this changes their...

    Leave the fan at home. The room has good A/C, and a ceiling fan with, as I recall, 3 speed settings above the bed. I like it cool and last year on the first night, I actually had to turn the AC...

    Every now and then someone will express concern about being a little too old. They are welcome and so are you. People are too busy having a good time to give it much thought, really.

    They're not a romantic couple, are they? If they are not, I don't think they fit the definition of a couple in the sense of the theme of the resort. Basically, your hubby seems to be saying that any...

    I've brought a single pair of good sunglasses every time we've gone to the Caribbean. Never lost or damaged a pair in 25+ years.
    Obviously, if you know you're prone to mishaps, that would change...

    I agree with the biased and peace and quiet part of the above. I disagree with the rest. And I've stayed at both resorts.

    I don't like it when the cost of my vacation goes up anymore than anyone else. But that doesn't make the owners greedy. They're business people. They'll price the rooms for what the market will bear,...

    Two weeks ago a pound of ground Blue Mountain coffee was $52 at the CSA gift shop, and $33 per pound at the airport. So, I bought 3 lbs at the airport. I think I'll try Mavis Banks online, as 3 lbs...

    Tipping in violation of Couples' express policy, as well as the wishes of the vast majority of the other guests should be seen for what it really is: selfishness. It isn't about rewarding good...

    We've been to CSA for the last 4 years. We've traded places at CN every other year. Each time our impression was very favorable, and we'd think maybe we'd book a stay there (we did back in 99 and...

    I'm sure you will be happy with your choice. I've been to CN, CSA, and CSS. My favorite is CSA. However, when I saw that you were in your late 20's, my gut feeling was that you'd probably like CN a...

    Perhaps they will have better wine. :) Seriously, check in from time to time. I've experienced sticker shock before, only to see the price drop some later on.

    We've been to both. We go to CSA more often than we go to CSS because we love the beach and Negril vibe so much, but we do go back to CSS every few years because we miss it after awhile. Since you've...

    Having been to all 3, CSS is clearly the quietest. That said, both CSA and CN have a much awesomer beach scene......and neither of them are loud, party places. Unless quiet is clearly the single most...

    CTI is about 2 1/2 - 3 hours from CSA, in each direction, so the round trip really eats into your day. If you're willing to spend, perhaps you could fly from Negril to a nearby airfield.....I think...

    We always bring workout clothes with us. Last year, a complete waste of luggage space. 8 straight days of being as lazy as humanly possible. We'd walk to the bar, or we'd walk to one of the...

    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,...
