    I had a couple questions about snorkeling. How many trips per day are you doing for the guests? How rough are the seas right off the beach? We bring our own snorkel gear and love to snorkel right off the beach. We also love to float in the sea on the mats that Couples provides and know that CTI and CSS have mostly calm waters because of a natural break or cove. A couple questions about dining. How far in advance do you book reservations for dinner? Will we have a problem with getting a seat where and when we want to since there could potentially be 560 other guests on the property with only three restaurants? I see Dover grill, Waves a buffet for lunch and breakfast which turns into an ala cart for dinner, and then Enid's which is Caribbean food. Which one of these are open air dining? Which one of these are fine dining( Like your 8 rivers at CTI or CSS's Casanova's)? One of our favorite things is getting dressed to the nines and going for a fancy dinner while on vacation in JA. Are you going to post example menus soon for all of these restaurants just like you have for all of the dining options in JA? I am getting ready to book at least a week stay in 2014 (when you release the rates for 2014) and need to know these things before I make a decision on a vacation to JA or Barbados. We also wanted to comment we fly for free (cc rewards) and cannot take advantage of the 1000$ credit (we'd also have to stay over one night in Texas to do your flights) and we are not willing to sacrifice a vacation day for travel. Wish there was more than just the 7th night free for people booking way early. Perhaps a room credit

    Randymon, will our Romance Rewards benefits apply at Couples Barbados? Will we retain our level status? Really considering trying Barbados next year.

    Default Is the $1000 air credit not working?

    I'm trying to book an 8 night trip to Couples Barbados, and it's only a couple hundred dollars less than a comparable room on the same nights at CSA, despite the $1000 credit. Is the credit not going through correctly, or is Couples Barbados really that much more expensive than the Jamaica Couples?

    Pretty sure it's the airfare that is crazy expensive even with the credit...

We love Jamaica but would also love to try another country but are not willing to give up all that the couples brand gives us. We look forward to hearing all about Barbados.

    I have been to Barbados and lived there. There are no au natural beaches or sunbathing there. It is illegal to even go topless.

    None of the beaches in Barbados are au natural, so they can't be at any resort.

    Thanks for that-

    So what's the possibility and/or feasibility that construction/renovations will be done by mid-June? Also since Almond was still taking reservations will be there be non-couples and/or families there this summer?

    When will we get to see a resort layout map with the room type locations? We have been to the other resorts and know them.

    Randymon,

    Will there be floaties on every chair, or is that a Jamaica thing? It may be a minor detail, but its huge for us. Love floating in the ocean, although I know that Barbados beach is not as calm as Jamaica.

    Did a search, but can't seem to see the answer to this. If it has been answered can someone post where to find it?

    I read that there would not be any floaties due to rougher waters at this resort.

    Thanks for the answer. Randymon, can you explain what you mean by "for now"? Will there be floats at a later date? When?
