Does anyone have evening or night pictures of the beach bar or the balloon bar at CSS? My SO has threatened to take me off duty for choosing a resort after last year and I'm trying to sooth him. The resort I chose in the DR was nice (not nearly as nice as Couples but it was a trip with another couple with a very limited budget) but the beach bar and the pool bar closed at 6pm. What a downer!! Our only evening option was the formal (and uptight, in my opinion) lobby bar. We'll be SO thrilled to have somewhere to hang out casually in the evenings. I still can't believe that with the beautiful palm fringed beaches and ocean breezes that the BEACH bar closed so early. Live & learn, right? We'll continue to travel to other destinations but Couples will always be our staple at least once a year. This will be our first trip to CSS (June 2010) but 4th to the Couples chain.
Believe me, the entertainment goes on at the Balloon Bar outside area until 11 p.m. I know beacuse my room, F3, was facing that area so we sat on the balcony and enjoyed the music every evening. And the entertainment was top notch, not some high school rendition of Cats with a foreign accent that you will get are other AIs.
Trust me, you are about to make up for last year...BIG TIME!! CSS is a beautiful and fun resort. You will be able to enjoy PLENTY of night activity! After a visit to CSS, your SO will want to make you the permanent chooser of vacation places.
He did not feel so good after the Bob Marleys, but it is nice to know that Ashley (his new wife) was feeling good enough to make fun of his passed out self. I remember that he wore sunglasses everywhere the next day, when he emerged from hibernation.
CSS is awesome. You and SO will have a great time.
There is plenty to do at night for those that want to. So tell the SO to relax. It will be irie.
The bar stays open until everyone leaves. (or passes out in Jake's case)
We will be there in July with Jeffmon, Mandy, Dave and Erin, our dear friends from CSS. I am sure that we will meet new friends and draw them into our zanyness (not sure if that is really a word).
C'mon, you have to admit it was pretty funny how quickly things went downhill for Jake! Hahaaaa... in my defense, I would like to point out that I'm still holding his hand while making fun of my poor new husband
