    I was wondering when someone would start an August 2014 thread. We will miss you....but you will get plenty of posts from fellow August travelers on here.

    Cool , three couples from Texas there at least one night anyway. We are Mike and Lisa . Also from Texas. LOL We will be at CSS fron 8/5 through 8/10 after spending a week at CSA. Had also been wondering if someone was going to begin an August thread. Started to think we were going to have the place all to ourselves.

    CSA Aug. 2011, July 2012, July 2013, July 2014

    Sorry I missed that the first time. You are going to fall in love with CSS. The resort is very spread out with changes in elevation and beautiful greenery everywhere, with little surprises tucked around every corner. It has a very traditional island feel and not the ultra-modern vibe of some resorts. Trust me, that was a huge plus for us. There is so much history on the property, we recommend you take the orientation tour of the grounds with the staff. The spa is top notch. Ask about the couples massage in the hideaway hut. The smoothie bar at the mineral pool is great, as is the hot tub tucked and hidden up the steps behind the smoothie bar. There is a great little quiet spot down the steps by Charlie's...where the sauna is. Fun area to explore and snorkel.

    Try the fried fish sandwich and enjoy the soup of the day and a Red Stripe while dining at the beach grill. You will enjoy the gala on Friday night and beach party on Tuesday night. Casanova is an amazing dining experience. In four trips, we have not had a bad meal there once. Sunset Beach is a very unique and special experience. As far as off-site excursions, Dunn's River Falls is a must do, and we enjoyed it both times we went. Prospect Plantation is a neat little gem that is practically across the street from the resort.

    Our number one tip though would be relax. We always think we will do all these things we didn't do on our previous trip, and even though we now go for 9 nights it just doesn't happen! We enjoy talking and relaxing on the beach too much to care about what we aren't doing. Jamaica has beautiful scenery and beautiful people and you will not regret or forget the trip.

    I guess we will be there at the same time, N&N! Add Chris and Anecia to your list for 08/02 - 08/09. We are from Texarkana and it will be out first visit to a Couples resort, although we spent a week at the S resort in Montego Bay, so it isn't our first visit to Jamaica. We are counting down the days (46)!

    Thank you so much for your reply! It is getting close and we are beyond ready for this trip! I noticed that I put we will be there on 7/20 and actually it will be 7/30...oops! Relaxing is what I am most excited about, I am normally such a planner but this trip I am keeping a low key (or going to try to).

    Hope to maybe run into you guys!
