Your balcony will be a covered space so smoking is not allowed. However, I've heard that some guests have smoked at the swim-up pool bar at CTI and nobody has stopped them (despite the fact that the swim-up pool bar at CTI is a covered and public place, which should mean that no smoking is allowed there).
Please do not smoke on your balcony. You may not realize how much your second hand smoke travels . Your second-hand smoke can make the balconies surrounding yours unusable for guests who have a strong aversion to cigarette smoke. Nobody wants to go to Jamaica and pay for an oceanview room, and then not be able to use their balcony and be unable to enjoy the view because someone in the room next to theirs is smoking outside on their balcony.
We were at CTI in October last year. I was able to smoke on our patio, by the pool and on the beach, and at the outside bar. No smoking inside. I don't remember seeing any designated smoking areas. This may have changed the past 10 mns but not that I'm aware of.
You are allowed to smoke on your balcony as it's not public space, but not in your room. All the bars had no smoking signs. This was in July of this year. I believe you can smoke anywhere that is out in the open, just remember those around you and dispose of butts properly.
For CSS, there is no smoking allowed in any enclosed areas, such as the Balloon bar, Casanova, the lobby, your room, the internet/games room. Also any area of gathering including any bar, swim up or not, and the outside seating at Pallazina. You CAN smoke in any outside area including pool decks, beaches, and your balcony.
There is always a pro/con debate when it comes to smoking. Please if you do smoke, be courteous to those who don't, and those who don't, please don't expect others to not smoke in areas where it is allowed. CSS is all about respect and harmony. Lets all vacation that way and have an awesome week or two in Jamaica.
We just returned from CSS and no one said anything about our cigar smoking. Several in our group smoked at the pools, beach, and our balcony. In fact, they still give a "free cigar" certificate in the welcome packet. We did not smoke in any inside facility, of course.
Why is that comment so funny... It will never be legal? You will not be removed from the resort??
The last time we visited Jamaica it was offered pretty much wherever we went, including within the resort (Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton). In fact quite a few resort workers had made it clear it was available and it was pretty clear many people chose to partake in that sort of activity. We are not bothered either way...
