    Default CSS review June 18-June 26

    First off, our vacation was amazing so this is my story. None of these are complaints because the resort is great!! Friday June 18 our flights went perfectly. Got to the airport and waiting a few minutes till our bus was ready. Ride to the resort was smooth. On arrival they checked us in and on to our room we went. We were in A36. It was perfect. One the top floor, the farthest down the resort you can get. So very private and loved the view of the ocean and the pond. Friday night we got settled in our room then headed to the gala. What a presentation!! It was a lot of fun and we met 2 other couples. Saturday, we just took it all in. Sunday morning at about 1:30am we got a horrible phone call. We have two boys, 3 and 2. I was having a really hard time with leaving them so this phone call just made it way worse. The front desk called. They said they got a strange phone call and wondered if we had a daughter at home. I told him no and he so ok and hung up. Well, we couldn't get back to sleep because my sister had my boys and maybe she sounded young. So I called the front desk VERY unhappy, they said that the person had called back and that it was a different William they were looking for. I guess the person who called the front desk was looking for a William so they just called each William at the resort and tried to find out who it was. We didn't sleep the rest of the night. I just pray whomever it was they are alright. But I really really didn't appreciate that phone call espcially since it was so hard for me the leave my kids in the first place. So Sunday was a rush to the internet to make sure the boys were ok. Monday, we went to the casino night which was a blast. Casanova was a very yummy dinner that night also. I am not one for fancy restraurants but it was very good service and food. Tuesday we went on the Dune Buggy excursion. That was sooooooo much fun!!! We could have done that all day. Wednesday I used our spa credits with a facial and pedi. Then thursday was our couples massage. That was WONDERFUL!! Friday we just hung out because it was our last day and rainy. The food was great for sure. We loved the beach grill during lunch, just some good pizza and burgers!! All in all the trip was amazing. This was our second time. The first was 5 years ago at CSA. We loved CSS, it is quieter and more things to explore. Much more secluded which is great for us. Hoping to make it back in a couple years!! Our trip home was torture. I had such bad heartburn and gull bladder nasty going on Saturday morning I took two pain pills before leaving the resort. We get to the airport and I am sick from the pain pills. Come to find out after we wait in line that our flight no longer exists. Thanks for letting us know American Airlines!! LOL So they say we have to fly in Miami and try and get a flight out the next day. Not happy about that but fine if that is all they can do. So I almost pass out in front the of the guy so he went away. Came back and had booked us on US airways for pretty much the same times. So thank goodness we got home at the same time we would have. US airways planes are much nicer anyway!! But we finally caught our flight after I threw up in an airport restaurant trash can. If you have heartburn/gull bladder issues, skip the in room dinning sphaghetti. Can't wait for our next trip back!!! Thanks couples

    We enjoyed our trip VERY much and have told all our friends to go to CSS. My best friend took our advise and went just a few weeks before we did. We hope we can come back with them in a couple of years. Starting to save already!! I looked over the review again and you are right, it was all over the place!! LOL

    Actually, as a parent, I was disturbed by the phone call in the middle of the night issue. Scary indeed.

    The phone call would have had me up all night too - my other 1/2 is named William so we would have received "the call" too. Glad you enjoyed the resort - we love it as well. Also glad you finally made it home - what a way to end such an awesome vacation.
    ... it keepsh me shane
