    Default Couples With Family

    Husband and I are considering travelling to CSS - would like to travel with my sisters. Would they feel left out or uncomfortable travelling as roomies in a Couples Resort?

    I think you're sort of missing the point of Couples Resorts. As much as I know my adult, unmarried kids would love the resort, I wouldn't bring them along out of respect of what the brand stands for and for the other guests who expect that everyone there is a couple. JMO.

    In one word.....YES. Couples is a COUPLES resort.

    I don't think they will be very comfortable being the only two people there who are not a couple. I also don't think many will give you a positive answer. CSS has a certain ambiance to it because it is couples only. Many of us go there because it is couples only. It a place for my wife and I to spend quality time together, just us. No kids, no family, no singles. (hence the name "Couples")
    There are many great vacation spots for family and friends to enjoy. I'd say keep CSS as special place for you and your hubby to enjoy on your own. It has to be the most romantic place on earth. You certainly will love it there.... as a couple.

    If you can find dates for your sisters then I would say YES! Otherwise they will probably not enjoy themselves. Other adult resorts may be more appropriate but not the Couples chain.

    I hope you enjoy your trip!

    Like I posted on the previous thread about this, for my wedding at CSA in 2004, my 2 (soon to be at that time) brother in laws wanted to come. And Couples let them stay in a room together. I think their room actually had 2 double beds in it. So at some point, that was an option. I think if it weren't for my wedding, they may not have let them do that. Don't know for sure. They obviously were not a couple but they also weren't there trolling for chicks either. They were there to enjoy my and their brothers special day. I think in circumstances like that, it shouldn't be an issue. But for just a regular vacation? I agree, there are other places they could go. But honestly, I don't mind. As long as they are respectful, etc.

    We were at CTI at Christmas and there was a couple there who brought their 2 adult children. While the "kids" seemed to have an ok time, it irritated me to no end whenever I saw them. It's a couples resort, simple as that. There are plenty of other resorts on the island to try if you want to go with your sisters.

    Not as long as each of your sisters brought the other half of their couple....

    Absolutely no family members tagging along. Couples is a "couples only" resort. Go as a couple and enjoy an amazing time. Save the family trip for another time or another place.

    Bossy - are you unable to read? Please take a look at the Couples website - there's no mention of "hey, we're bringing our daughters on a romantic getaway." I suspect you're just a troll looking to rile up people on this MB. Either that or just uneducated - I won't say what I'm really thinking. READ THE WEBSITE....THIS IS NOT A PLACE FOR FAMILIES!!!! IT'S CALLED COUPLES FOR A REASON!! GET IT??

    Sorry Bossy - I just saw Sisters instead of Kids, but the same sentiment applies. I'll save you the capital letters.

    Would you bring your cats to a resort that expressed catered to dogs and had a no cat policy????

    It's called "COUPLES" & meant for a romantic getaway for COUPLES ONLY ...... Singles aren't allowed unless they are members of a wedding party. You need to check out a resort for adults only or families if you want to bring your sisters with you.

    That is a good way of putting it. I hardly want to be around single teens on my vacation.

    I think if I saw two people of the same gender sharing a room at a Couple's resort, my first thought would NOT be to think they were siblings. I've never seen anything that indicates Couple's is limited to opposite sex couples....

    Doug, thats one way to circumvent the rules I agree. But whu would you want to sneak your sisters into a Couples vacation with you and your mate?

    I know for a fact when we traveled in April of 2012 that a Couple also brought their 2 daughters. They went many places and ate dinner together as a family. Did it bother me? NO! If I have the chance I would bring my Son & Daughter to experience the fun my wife & I had. Now the wife feels different about it and says the kids really wouldn't have fun as they wouldn't have anyone to mingle with their age. I just know it never bothered me to see the family together, but the girls did look disinterested at times while playing with their phones.

    What is wrong with people that cannot get the concept of a "couples" resort? There are HUNDREDS of family resorts in Jamaica (one right next door to Couples Negril) why would you want to bring your family to a resort designed for and RESTRICTED to couples.
    I never can understand why people think the rules don't apply to them. If I ever see a family at Couples Resorts that is not challenged by the staff, it will be the last time I go to a Couples Resort.

    P.S...we traveled with our kids extensively starting when the youngest was 6 months old BUT we went to appropriate hotels.

    Why is this different than Singles being allowed if they are with a wedding party? Is there a limited time that "non-couples" are allowed at the resort if with a wedding?
