    Agree with Wally. Read as much as you can and look at as many pictures as possible as the resorts and towns are very different.

    I dream about pumpkin soup!
    And a place completely built for two.
    Warm air, friendly people, and easy smiles.
    Hummingbirds - birds and beverages.

    Personally, CTI was a great start to the Couples experience for us. We found the north coast resorts to be the most tropical properties. The AN areas at CTI/CSS were definitely more approachable...

    Eyesore? A palm thatched umbrella on a sandy beach is one of my favorite vacation sights! I wish there were more of them... And more cloth hammocks (vs. net) :)

    I'll jump in, too. AJ and Caitlin, currently out of NEPA. Five Couples trips in the books (CTI, CSS x2, CSA, CN) starting back in 2007.

    Hoping for #6 in 2015!

    I knew we couldn't have made him up!! So glad someone else has seen him to confirm our sanity (well, at least that portion).

    When we were there (many moons ago), a saxophone player wandered around the property playing just before and at sunset. At the beach restaurant (dinner), there was a mento band.

    I am beyond pale - translucent is more accurate, so I'm a big palapa fan (part of the draw of SSB for me even). Like, I'd sleep in a tent and eat only fruit and jerk chicken all week if I could have...

    We have never done it, but my husband and I starting to read up on bamboo river rafting on the Rio Grande or Martha Brae. The reviews talk about how relaxing it is, and we think it'd be a neat way...

    I know it was offered in June for July, at least. But there was some period of time before then when it was not offered.

    We have done it once (ended up at CSS) and now that we've been to all four...

    Like said, every Couples is great, and it's just personal preference that separates them for people.

    For us, CN was our least favorite but still a great vacation. Beautiful beach, delicious food,...

    We loved the Atrium hammock! I spent most of our trip there, and my husband and I fought over it constantly :P

    Way better than those weird net ones. I struggle to get into and get comfortable in...

    What a great idea. I am also of the pale persuasion and seek shade. We haven't ever even thought to bring an umbrella because at other resorts (including CSS) finding an open palapa/umbrella was...

    Turks & Caicos is amazing. Talcum powder soft white sand, perfectly calm, shallow warm turquoise/clear water. If you like Seven Mile beach,...

    My husband was a bit bummed when I told him about this thread - as we had no applause at breakfast. I guess we will have to practice our performance ;)

    Couples food variety is impressive. And while it is not the same, my food restriction is my extreme allergy to shellfish (throat swells, death, that sort of thing). So when the menu for the...

    They usually get you out and there with a couples hours to burn at the airport. But this year, we left the resort (CN) at roughly 10:30AM and barely made our 1:55PM flight! Got to MBJ about noon,...

    I think the info posted here is spot on. The only thing I would disagree with is that CSA is more "tropical" than CTI/CSS. Yes, the Negril beaches at CSA/CN are gorgeous, but the rest of the...
