    Default Just Back From CSA

    We just returned from our third visit to CSA and once again had a wonderful time. The main reason we return each year is to spend time with the staff who have become our dear friends and it was great to see them again. We did notice that many of the watersports staff who we enjoyed spending time with are no longer there and the guys did seem to be extremely busy and understaffed. They still managed to make sure everyone was looked after. We were there for Valentine`s Day and the resort went above and beyond for the occasion. There was a magnificent cocktail party on the South Lawn and the decorations were amazing. Roses were handed out at dinner and upon returning to the room at the end of the evening we discovered a cute teddy bear on the bed. If you have the chance to visit Couples for Valentines Day do so. It was so romantic. Everything from the food to the entertainment was once again fantastic. We love to spend time with Ulti at the piano bar and found that it was a very popular place this year, much busier than we have seen it in the past. There was one evening where a quite rowdy group was there and that is just not our thing so we made the evening short and headed to the Main Bar to visit with Kurt who is the Bartender Exceptionale. We did notice that there were a few days where finding a chair on the beach was a bit of a challenge but on our last day there we saw a large quantity of new chairs and floaties being put out. Just another example of how Couples is continually striving to ensure that their guests receive the best. We had planned to do some off-site excursions this visit but once again were so content with just being at CSA that it never happened. We had also planned to sign up for the Trading Places program and visit CN but were unable to tear ourselves away from CSA. We met some great new friends and spent time reconnecting with the wonderful staff and before we knew it the week was up and it was time to come home. Already planning our next trip and hoping to bring some others with us next time to let them experience the magic. Once again, another perfect vacation at CSA!

    I really enjoyed your post. We are like you except that we go to CN. My husband and I want to do Trading Spaces and see CSA but we are so relaxed when we are at the resort, we can't leave!

    Thanks for the great review. Even tho we'll be at CN during our brief stay in Negril, we intend on visiting CSA via the TP program. Reviews like this make us look forward to walking the grounds & beach, having a few drinks, enjoying a nice lunch, and chatting with the customers there.

    Reading is fundamental. It's just that for some, it's more mental than fun.

    Great review. My husband and I will are newbies to CSA. We will be in Jamaica for the very first time in April. I am quite anxious to go experience CSA after reading the message board and all the repeaters comments about coming home!
