    Default Great 2 wks at CSS and CN

    It's been a week since we returned from our trip to CSS and CN. Spent first week (Jan 22) at CSS - first time - and we loved it, second week back at CN (we were there Jan '10). Definitely recommend couple massages at both places - my hubby had his first ever massage at CSS and loved it so much we decided to do it the second week at CN and loved it just as much!!

    Was very happy with the arrangements that CSS made to transfer us to CN. We left at 6 AM (great time to leave as traffic was mostly quiet and got to see more of the countryside). It's about a 3 hr drive but we had a great driver so that made it even better.

    What I really loved about CSS: the grounds are beautiful, I loved having meals at the Palazzina as the outside area gave a beautiful view of the grounds and ocean. Our room (1 bedroom beachfront) was nice and roomy. Snorkelling off the beach was a nice surprise.

    What I really love about CN: the beach and water, casual atmosphere, great snorkelling trips, great food.

    We really love Couples Resorts and would recommend it to anyone wanting an couples-only resort with great amenities. Thank you Couples for another great vacation!!

    Do they charge for the transfer between resorts? Even if hotels are not booked directly with Couples?

    We are struggling which resorts we want to stay in. If we go 10 nights, we could do 5 nights in CSS and 5 in CTI. Alternatively, if we can do 12 nights we would stay 6 in Negril and 6 in CSS. March 2012.

    SOONERFANS.....25 consecutive nights!!!! I would need a therapist, Betty Ford Clinic visit and my own personal weight watcher coach if I ever did that. Plus the anticipation of waiting well over a year would result in Divorce.

    I pace myself...just came back from CN July 10th after 10 nights....going to CN Jan 29-Feb 8 2012 for another 10 and just booked CN June 27-July 7 for another 10...see the pattern....CN 10 nights every 6 months give or take.

    That being said....have a wonderful trip....start the 500 (or so) day happy dance and keep us posted after your visit....we have been to CN (obviously) and CSS and are curious about CSA and CTI...

    PirateBunny -

    Yes, Couples pays for all transfers:

    1. From the airport in Montego Bay to any of their resorts (provided you have reservations)
    2. From any of their resorts to airport in Montego Bay (provided you have reservations)
    3. From any of their resorts to any other of their resorts (provided you have reservations at both)

    It does not matter how you book your trip.

    Well the captain you are the lucky one......every 6 months?? OMG that would be great!!!!! yeah we started in the 500's+ and we are down to like 484 or somewhere around that and YES it's probably going to kill me to wait this long and I vow to NEVER book anything in this long of a time ever again!! I know we can afford to go to Couples once a year but dont see us being able to do it twice a year so I'm very jealous!!!!
    I can assure you that when Jan 1st rolls around, I will be doing a happy dance cause I can finally say it's going to be this year and actually I just need Nov. 28th and it will be a year from that day!!! Gawdddd as I write this I realize how far off this trip is.......geez Captain!! Well cant wait to hear about your 2 upcoming trips and heck you'll probably have the 3rd one booked and went before we ever get to go!!!
    I cant wait to have a pattern!!!!!!!!!!

    Every 6 months is more out of necessity than by choice! Next month; Sept 20 to be exact; will be 11 years that I "KICKED CANCER TO THE CURB"! Every 6 months I must go for testing;blood work etc...to make sure it is still in the street with the trash where CANCER belongs! This testing is every June and December...see how my CN visits follow the testing pattern. I'm choosing to live life to the fullest as tomorrow is promised to no one...that is why today is a called "present".
    I hope this "pattern" continues for many, many years to come because every day on the "green side" of the grass is a great one!
    Sorry...don't mean to be a downer...or sound like a preacher.....I just find it very good for my own head when I can discuss this openly..
    Thanks for listening...

    Captain, I am sooo sorry that you had to ever go thru that but I am so glad that you are a survivor and have kicked it to the curb and I pray that you get to continue your trips to Couples to enjoy life to the fullest!! I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer last April of 2010 so yes I get to run test and see doctors for the next 10 years of my life! Had 2 surgeries within 12 days last April so it was quite a exausting year and at this moment(knock on wood) I am cancer free!! I hope we get to meet one of these days cause I feel like I kinda know you now! LOL Back to being serious.....my prayers are with you and now that I see a pattern by all means I will be jealous of all your trips but I wont give you a hard time! hehehe Take care my friend!!
