    Default CTI--Live

    You know you are home when you are greeted with warm hugs and champagne from Byron.

    It is a bit cloudy, but no worries. For those that are worried about all the algae on the beach. We are not seeing any. The beach does look a bit narrower in the previous years, but still plenty of chairs to lounge on and plenty of space.

    Gotta go!

    2nd day was beautiful. A brief rain shower but nothing to get upset about. We just shoved our bags under our chairs and stayed in the pool. It was funny though to see people get out of the pool and get under "cover" when it rains. Oh well. The place is very busy. We have heard 80+%. But still empty chairs are seen. Well time to head out!

    Another beautiful day in paradise! The water is calm, green flag is flying as it was yesterday. At 8:00 the beach is clear of any seaweed that may have washed up over night. Bright smiles are everywhere. Time breakfast!

    Glad to hear things are great at CTI. We will be there in 2 weeks. How is the size of the beach? You mentioned it seemed a bit narrower than usual.

    The beach is fine, lots of swimmers/floaters everyday. Still empty chairs. Another green flag day today. Headed over to CSS for the Trading Spaces but came back early. Dinner at 8 Rivers and the Steel Drum band is playing now. We had a down pour this evening, but before it came in, there was a beautiful rainbow.

    Yes, we have heard stories, but as we weren't there, they are just that stories. No first hand experience other than they called to let us know we wouldn't be going as we had reserved for this morning. No problem, plenty of other things to do.

    Azcoo,

    I guess we didn't get a chance to meet. So sorry about that.

    We had a great time, as usual and I do have photos to post.Maybe someone who is there now will pick up this thread and continue to post.

    Please don't misunderstand me. I wasn't saying it "didn't" happen, I am just not willing to repeat a story that I only heard 3rd hand. I was not on the excursion, nor did I speak to anyone that was on the excursion. My info was someone, who talked to someone. So I did not want to give out misinformation. The ONLY information I had first hand was that our horseback riding excursion for the Thursday morning was canceled.

    If you look at tripadvisor.com the woman who was involved in this incident shares what happened. Scary!

    its pretty sad that 1 bad incident ruins it for that person and then they try to ruin for everyone else. it really saddens me this couple is from Nebraska as am I, I would hope us Nebraskans had a little more commen sense than that.
    The first time we were at CTI a guy got mugged at Jimmy Buffets place but I would never say anything bad or Couples or any of their employees.
    The thing that bothers me the most is that you could get robbed, mugged, anything...anywhere in the U.S.
    anyway, nothing like that would ever stop me from going to my home away from home and make me miss my week in paradise!!!

    Fortunately, no one was hurt and Gary Stephens (what happened to be at the resort while we were there and maybe that's why) has addressed the situation on Tripadvisor. I still went off resort on Friday with Alford for the Power Walk. Was I more "alert"? Sure, not a problem though and look forward to returning to "our home away from home" next July. Really--a refund for your trip???
