    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...

    Shops at CN . . . depends on what you're looking for. There are two main shops plus the beach shack. The shack sells suntan lotion, swim goggles, lip balm, sunglasses, etc. -- as you'd expect,...

    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...

    Most of us who enjoy Couples feel like it's "coming home." OK, a very pampered him. :) However, unless you happen to live in a mansion, home doesn't mean marble bathrooms, 4-poster cherry beds,...

    We've been to CN 8 times and are 14 days away from #9.

    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 tough it out in the US. I usually wear lightweight pants (not jeans b/c they're too hot for Jamaica) and a light shirt with a summer sweater. As soon as I land, I take off the sweater. That...

    Agree that lines are hit or miss. We have waited well over an hour and have cleared customs in less than 10 minutes. Honestly, it depends on how many flights arrive at the same time as yours and...

    They either hand it to you when you arrive (part of welcome packet) or send it to you while you're there. FYI, if you're there over 2 dinners, you only get to attend one. You'll be invited to the...

    Have to admit we've never done this. Couples covers transport from airport to resort. My guess is that they don't cover from another resort b/c this would be an extra trip for the driver. I would...

    In our 8 times going to CN, we've had waits of less than 5 mins to about 20 mins at the airport. Must admit that even the "longer" waits aren't a problem. We grab a Red Stripe/Diet Pepsi and/or...

    The first time we went to CN we took large, checked bags. After that (and it will be #9 in a month), we've gone with carry-ons. The first time we brought WAY too many clothes and ended up not...

    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.

    United out of IAD (Washington Dulles) but only on Saturdays and sometimes only in the winter season. Great flight when it's available.

    We've done it 8 times. I would say the average wait is 20 mins. We've been out in 10 and waited 30 max. They typically want to fill a bus so will wait for enough folks to arrive for that to happen...

    Most loyalty programs do reward those who partake often (and/or at higher cost) with "better" incentives. Most programs (other than cruise lines) require some sort of renewal in order to maintain...

    From what I've read, people are confused, uncertain, worried, etc. And that's fair. Let's face it, when you book a vacation (especially at Couples), you're looking for a stress-free process. Now,...

    Of course, a lot depends on you. Your room might not be ready but there's a changing area so you can hit the beach and pool and bars right away. If you're hungry, lunch will still be ongoing at two...

    Getting to the resort isn't only about flights. Once you land you have to clear customs and then get to the resort. Do the Club MoBay entry to avoid potentially VERY long lines in customs. We've...

    Bottom line is that you can't go wrong with any restaurant. You can't do Otaheite the first night but there will be at least 2, often 3 alternatives.

    All are great. You can check out the menus...
