    Default Couples Sans Souci Review

    This was our second stay at this resort and this trip was even better than the first.

    Transfer-arrived at Couples Lounge at airport and transfer left within 15 minutes. One couple had to go to the bathroom mid-trip, so we did have one stop.

    Check-in- Friendly, quick, and efficient- room ready after a few minutes (Arrived at resort 1:30).

    Room- we stayed in a One Bedroom Ocean View room (G14). The room was large and comfortable with a fantastic balcony and fabulous view of the ocean. We knew going in that the rooms are dated but they are kept very clean. Comfortable bed and pillows.

    Food- Food at all restaurants were great. There was always plenty to eat and a reasonable amount of choices. Our meal at Cassanova was amazing. The repeaters dinner was also incredible! Room service is a good addition, however selection is limited. Loved having breakfast on our patio in the morning. Drinks were plentiful and the staff was always willing to refill and refill. Our one disappointment was the Starlight Gala. Due to overcast weather, this was moved inside. We were put in the "banquet hall" for this dinner. It was like being at a wedding reception-very disappointing.

    Spent most of our time at the AN beach. Everyone there is so friendly (staff and guests). Food at lunch at the AN Beach was limited but acceptable. Nice not having to leave. Beach on that side is incredible but could use some more palapas. Unfortunately, guests were saving loungers with their towels often not coming down all day to use the loungers.

    Incredible staff, some who remembered us from two years ago! Where else does this happen. We will definitely be returning.

    We stayed for the first time a few weeks ago (mid-March) and really enjoyed it. Sorry the Gala was held inside due to weather. Ours was outside and the food was good, as expected. And the set up was nice. Yes, we stood in line for food but it didn't take long to get through. We weren't impressed with the entertainment, though. A lot of people left about 10 minutes after the entertainment started. Sad, really. I thought they might have steel drums or something more Jamaican but it was just a female singer (male came on later for individual and duet). But it was American type songs and such. She was good but after a few songs, we were done. We were leaving in the morning anyways. We could still hear it from our room and figured that was good enough.

    Wow this sounds amazing, Roger and I have booked an ocean 1 bedroom suite too, its our first time at Couples Sans Souci. Its our 10th Wedding Anniversary Holiday. So is rather special.... Hope the room is in a quiet area, but it sounds wonderful. Did the lift/elevator work to get down to the beach? I understand there is a mini bus who can take us up and down..... only 29 days until we are there.... Thank you for your beautiful review...... Eva......

    The elevator only takes you down to the spa area and the mineral pool. It is still a little ways down to the beach from there. Our room was in a very quiet area. We even fell asleep on the balcony one evening.
