    At the risk of being blasted out of this thread, I wanted to pose a question. Recently, there have been a few threads on the main board about partying at Couples. It seems that there are two distinct views on the subject. One side, I'll call the Romantics, seems to feel that Couples should be strictly for being with your SO and should be a peaceful relaxing experience. The other side, I'll call the partiers, like to meet up with other couples and have a little louder, for lack of a better word, experience.

    I was wondering if anyone in the June group wanted to share which side they are on.

    I'm a little bit on the side of the partiers. Hope I don't offend anyone.

    Default Partuing

    Most people us included are not against people enjoying themselves as long as they remember that there are others on the island who may not wish to be bombarded with loud music and some of the various other slightly less savoury aspects that some of the louder members we have observed over the last 4 visits inflict on quieter islanders.
    We all like to have a drink and a laugh and enjoy the company and sunshine, and as long as the "partiers" respect other people then there is no reason that with sensible behaviour the two sides of "Romantics" as you call us and the "Partiers" cannot co-exist.
    We will say that a couple of years ago on our second visit some "Partiers" were to put it politely disgusting in their behaviour hence our concerns on this.
    Apart from that lets all enjoy the brilliant Island for many years to come.

    We aren't heavy partiers, but enjoy socializing spending a great deal of time talking about our families, work and catching up over the past year, just getting to know each other. Okay and on occasion getting a laugh at someone's expense who maybe is acting like a kid in the candy shop with all the free alcohol flowing. But that doesn't happen often. Last year, the island was much quieter than the swim up pool on the island. We go in for lunch many times and it was loud--not just music, because of a wedding party that was the resort.

    Yeah we read that y'all and another two or three couples will be there at the same time. Can't wait to meet new friends.

    I know about the double digits seems like the last few triples are creeping down.

    We really can't wait after 22 years together this is our first trip out of the country together. We are so looking forward to it.

    Will be looking for you when yall come in.

    You picked a great place for your first venture out of the country. The couples that we will be meeting are folks that we have met at Couples over the years. If you care to, you will meet friends for life.

    Like they say, once you go, you know!

    Don't count on it...we booked airfare early and friends choose to wait...needless to say they gave up and booked this weekend for $100 more a ticket than us, today rates went up again and many flights are getting full which leaves worse times to choose from. My advice is book it asap with crude oil continuing rise. Good luck :-)

    Well it seems that everything is coming together. Passports are in hand, plane tickets bought. All insurances in place.

    Wife picking out her new bathing suits. Can't be having those last year ones now can we? LOL

    I am really glad we started reading all of these posts to learn as much as we can to avoid a lot of the so called rookie mistakes. Will probably still make some but not any huge ones hopefully.

    Now seems the hardest thing is the waiting game.

    Guess the one thing is getting my tan on so I am not milkbone when we get there. LOL

    anyway enough for now and all that will be there before, with and after us may the ocean be calm, the skies be blue and the drinks be cold.
