    In all the trips we have taken to Jamaica, we have yet to drum up the courage to try a Bob Marley!

    I can't wait to hear all about your trip. I am interested in hearing your favorite parts of each of the four resorts, which is your favorite resort, and why.

    OK chasandpeg, I will report in when we get home. They are all so different, it is hard to pick just one.
    I spoke with the hubby and we have agreed to try just one Bob Marley on this trip. We have witnessed many people miss dinner after having these and that is just not going to happen to us! The food at Couples is wayyyyyy too good to miss!

    Marnie and Dave-You'll be able to handle the Bob Marley-no problem mon. Watched one guy do 3 flaming ones one night. I shook his hand and told him this would be the last thing he remembers for two days just befor he did his third one.

    Is it mandatory to drink the shot with a straw to count? This year I had a difficult time with it because I couldn't throw it down the hatch. - Either way, try without the straw and don't do the shot at right after breakfast - my buddy's wife did one with me then threw up her fried bammy by the nice towel lady at the CN swim up bar! We cleaned it up.

    Be prepared to be asked this kind of question by everyone you meet while you are there. Jen and I just completed our own Grand Slam two weeks ago (it truly sucks to be back home), and the most common conversation starter was "First time here?", to which we explained that it was our first time to CN, but that we had seen the other 3 properties, and this was the last one on the Tour. After hearing that, the follow up question will be the same as the one above. Everyone will want to know which one is your favourite, and why.

    And for the record, our sentiments mirror yours exactly! When people at CN found out we had been to all 4 properties, they always asked which one was our favourite, and neither Jen or I could give an answer. They are all just too good to be able to pick one over the other! As you mentioned, each property has something (many things actually) that we loved, and we would have no problems at all returning to any of them. We started at CSA, then went to CSS, and then on to CTI and finished with CN.

    If there is one thing that Couples does better then anyone else, is the consistency in level of service that they offer at each Resort, and how special they make you feel. It makes picking a favourite property difficult, because in more ways then you'd think, they are all the same. We've been to all 4 properties, and each time we felt like we were coming home, even though we had never been to that location before.

    The hardest choice we had to make (and I'm sure it will be for you guys as well) was which one to return to first. When booking for 2013, we decided to lock in our prices before the end of Oct, which meant we had to choose a property having only seen CSA, CSS and CTI. We ended up picking CSS as our first return property, but that's not to say it was our favourite. We met some amazing people at CN this trip, who are also repeaters, and we would very much like to return to CN at the same time as them, but the timing just didn't work out.


    Anyways, congrats on your trip!

    Jay and Jen;
    I couldnt agree more. Couples has perfected the beach vacation for all of us, and spoiled us in the process. It is no longer a decision of where to go on vacation but which Couples to go to.
    We have been to 3 of the 4 so far, with a couple of trading places days at CN. I can honestly say that we found a lot of differences between the resorts.
    CSA is our favourite for beach and nightlife. We love the fact that they have a place for a sit down breakfast as well, some things just dont work on a buffet like eggs benedict. Ultimate Chocolate is fantastic too.
    We love the nude beach so our choice for that is CSS hands down. The views from the room are incredible and the food was outstanding. The nightlife was disappointing as things seemed to wrap up by 11 which is early for us.
    Truthfully, CTI was just not for us. Didnt like the rooms, the beach or the nightlife at all. That said, we found the service at CTI to be head and shoulders above all the other resorts.
    I cant wait to try CN for the first time. We know the nude beach is not as private as CSS and has no pool but I am sure there will be other things that we will find outstanding.
    We are lucky to have met friends on our first trip to Couples back in 2009 at CSA. We have been vacationing with them ever since and will be at CN with them this year too!!

    We arrive on the 19th and will be looking for you on the 20th! How about the piano bar after dinner?????? Say, 10ish or whenever the piano player starts. Can't wait to meet you and there is no reason to be nervous! We will be with Mike and kathy, aka Illini on this message board. Just look for the blonde and the lady with the beautiful white hair.

    It's a deal. I've already got the Pepcid AC on stand by. I haven't carried my wife over my shoulder out of a bar in years (we were just dating then 27+).
