    I'd like to add that we stayed in those 3 room categories in 5 of the last 6 years and we never missed having TV's in them. To the extent that we thought about it at all, it was to marvel at how...

    Coincidentally, my wife talked me into buying a bottle a few weeks ago. Just tonight she tried to palm it off on our son and his friend. So, thumbs down from us!

    I have seen mixed reviews about the Great House rooms. The GVS rooms are fine, although they also have gotten a few mixed reviews due to proximity to road noise. I suggest you check in and see how...

    Typically it falls into a pattern. Sunny all morning, clouds gather, sometime between about 1:30 and 3:30 it rains anywhere from 15 minutes to 1 1/2 hours. We plan for it with other, fun, indoor...

    Once you decide where and when you want to go, book right away. I wouldn't be surprised if some room categories are booked up already, so there is nothing to gain by waiting.

    My wife and I had the pleasure of staying in Room 1128 in mid-February. It's the only PBFS we've stayed in, but I can tell you it was totally awesome. We had the entire first floor to ourselves. 2nd...

    We work out regularly, and always bring some workout sportswear with us. Then we don't work out while we're there. Ever. Still, the stuff is light, and one of these years we'll have an all day rain...

    That pretty much matches my experience from 2 weeks ago. Palms was the best it's ever been imo. And I don't remember ever seeing the beach this wide, so better enjoy it while you can.

    This is awesome. We just booked an atrium for the end of February. I feel fortunate to have checked the message board today, as I expect a lot of people who were on the fence will jump now.

    My instinct is to help first-timers out if they ask for it. I don't think it's a repeater thing. It's a personality thing. When someone's rude, it's just who they are, no matter if it's their first...

    You can still get a glass of foam. I figured out how to avoid it. Just have the tap opening as far inside your glass as possible. Initially it foams a bit but stops as soon as the beer level reaches...

    CSA Review 2/15-2/23

    Arrived at the airport at 12:15 pm. Cleared immigration and customs very quickly, grabbed a beer at the Couples Lounge and our shuttle was already rolling by 1:15. Reached CSA by about 2:30 and...

    It's really important to read the labels carefully. There are "Mountain Grown" coffees that are sold in packaging that closely resembles Blue Mountain Coffee. I advise looking for the words "Mavis...

    You shouldn't do it for the resort staff. They'll likely be terminated if they're caught accepting a tip. Several have told me so, and I don't know why they'd say it if it wasn't true.

    I think the Atriums are the best value in the resort. They have more of a traditional, tropical feel about them than the Great House, or Ocean Verandahs for that matter.

    I've been to both and prefer CSA. That said, you will have a great time at CN. There are probably an equal number of people who prefer CN. The beach at CN is very, very nice. If beach is important to...

    That brochure applied only to Couples Ocho Rios (now CTI). I know this because we stayed at Swept Away in 1998, before Couples acquired it. We saw the construction at Couples Negril, and stayed there...

    I'm not real thrilled about the jet skis, but I'm pretty sure they have a legal right to be out there. I just chalk it up to being one of those things that you encounter in a different country. It's...

    I'd like to add a caution or concern. If you book 10 nights initially, the resorts continue to accept bookings. This means that if you wait a month, for example, to expand to 13 nights, some or all...
