My boyfriend and I are going to Couples Tower Isle May 16-22 to celebrate my graduation and also our 3 year anniversary! We are really excited and can't wait! This is our first trip to Jamaica, as well as our first trip out of the states together. We're 22 & 24 and would love to meet other young couples that will be going at the same time to hang out with! We are both very fun loving and can't wait to do all the fun adventures the resort has to offer!
We'd love to hear any tips or suggestions that previous goers would like to share! Any adventures that we MUST do, things to stay away from, must haves to pack, good things to know about the resort, what to eat, what to wear, etc! Any information will be appreciated!
We shall see you there! My husband and I will be going for our honeymoon and during that same week our closest friends are getting married there! We couldn't do a honeymoon until May and our friends chose to get married then and there which is perfect for our wallets! We are super excited to have the opportunity to be at there wedding!
We have never been to Jamaica or out of the states together. Our friends have never been out of the states together but he has been to Jamaica! We are so excited! Look forward to seeing you there! 97 days for us......99 for you!!
Can I ask what photography you used for your wedding while there? There is only going to be us four there for the wedding and I know photos are super important to her. I know they are on a tight budget for photos so I though I would ask.
Also is anyone who is going to be there decent for with a camera we could pester into taking a few pictures of all four of us? We would truly appreciate it!
Happy to hear from some people who will be there while we will. Me&Tee- as repeat visitors what advice would you give to first timers like ourselves? Anything you wish you would have know on your first visit to CTI that you know now?
Lance-It kind of makes me laugh that you asked our advice as "repeat visitors". We're still newbies as compared to some folks on the message boards.
On our first trip though, we learned to do more active things in the morning and then hang by a pool/beach in the afternoon when it gets hotter. The winds also seemed to pick up in the afternoon which made attempting to learn to sail interesting! We did most of the excursions (cat cruise, horseback, Dunn's River) and all were enjoyable (plus it is nice that you have your fellow guests along with you).
Overall, there really were no problems. The staff was great, we were impressed by the food (I discovered that I like conch on beach night, so I'd say try new things!), and we found that the level of interaction with other guests was up to us (social stuff to do, but no pressure to join in if we weren't into it).
Less than 90 days to go!
Congratulations to everyone either getting married or there on honeymoon.
My husband and I will be there 15th to 19th. We try to go every year this will be our 4th time to Jamaica. 3rd to CTI.
Blaine or Tina how many nights are you staying. IF it is more that 6 nights you might be able to use your resort credit, If you have signed up for romance rewards. But please call them to verify. If so that would be helpful on your budget.
Katie and James, Yay!! I'm so excited that another young couple will be there!!! We are 22 and 24. We should hang out and get drinks while we are there!! There is a photo of us on my profile so you know who we are!
I just recently started looking at this message board, but it is truly getting me fired up and ready for 5/14-5/21.
Looks like a great group of people will be there with us!
You guys don't worry too much about the ages of the other couples. One thing we have enjoyed in past visits is the mix of people. We have met some great 50-60+ couples that can party us under the table, and we have met some 20ish couples that looked like they were ready for retirement.
All I know is that I am ready to KICK IT Jamaica style and 5/14 cant get here soon enough.
Only 35 more sleeps before we depart for the wonderful shores of CTI. We can't wait. We'll be celebrating lots: one year since we got engaged, my graduation and the start of a new decade, 40 for me.
We are both so very, very happy to be coming back to CTI, visit number 3 for me and 2 for my wonderful fiance. I love the place so much that after my divorce I brought my boyfriend back and, now he loves CTI just as much as I do! ;0)
We would love to meet up with anyone around the week 14 to 21 May, so if you want to catch up before or just get excited let me know.
Christine & Paul
Hello! We're getting excited to see you all down with us in a few weeks. John and I will be at CTI May 15-22 and getting married on the 18th. He's 24 and I'm 28, but we're bringing quite a mixed age group with us!
Our First time at CTI but 3rd time in Jamaica. We were married 10 years ago at another resort that has since shut down. We went back for our 5th Anniversary, now going for our 10 year. Granted we got married in August, but flying back through part of a hurricane kinda scared us to go back in the month of August. hehehe.
"WE" are Lisa (43) and TJ (49) but trust me we have the heart and minds of youngins. hahaha! We will be there May 17th through the 23rd. Just look for the long haired biker looking guy and that would be TJ.
Congrats to all those going for their honeymoon and their wedding. For the first timers in Jamaica, after this trip, you will start calling Jamaica "home". The most amazing place in the world! Can't wait to be relaxing!!!! 37 days and counting!!!!!! See you all there!
