Young Couple-which resort??
Hello.. I am a newly engaged bridetobe and my fiance and I are looking to travel for our wedding. We want just a small, personal ceremony on the beach with only 2-4 friends. We love the beach ceremony and we think we'd like to have it more in the mornign around 11am. Does anyone have advice on which couples resort is best for us? Like I said, we are a young and in love couple that loves the beach and fun. Thank you!

Me and my husband got married in November and we're 25 but I don't think age matters at any resort. It's completely mixed of all ages and everyone has the same goal no matter what you're age, have a good time and relax! You'll have fun no matter what resort you go to. But if you like the beach I would recommend Couples Negril. They are well-known for their large beautiful beach. That's where we got married and we loved it!

Age doesn't matter at Couples. All of the resort would be perfect for what you're looking for. Read the website, check out pics, and go to the resort that calls to you.
Here are some quick differences:
CTI - Completely private beach, yet small; separate island for nude sunbathing, 5 restaurants including Bayside that sits on the water; the most inclusions (Dunn's River, catamaran cruise, horseback riding in addition to the others). Only 5 buildings (though 3 are connected) with rooms so the resort is very compact and intimate. Everything revolves around a central location. Just underwent a $30 million renovation - new rooms, new decor, new pools, etc. Fantastic food.
CSS - the newest to the Couples resort, but not the newest built. It used to be a Grand Lido then Couples bought it. Also have a completely private beach. Separate beach for nude sunbathing. Resort is spread out and built on cliffs. It's split into 3 different levels, lots of steps throughout. Lots of foliage and hidden spots. Does not offer a catamaran cruise. 3 restaurants but room service. All rooms are suites with mini bars. Rooms are more hotel like as far as the decor.
CN - Sits in Bloody Bay which it shares with 3 other resorts and public beach access. Separate section of main beach used for nude sunbathing. Individual buildings throughout the resort for the rooms. All on beach level. Somewhat spread out. Huge main pool with swim-up bar. Rooms decorated in bright colors. Room service only in select room categories and it must be ordered a day in advance. All rooms have mini bars.
CSA - Sits on 7 mile beach. Separate buildings for rooms that are cabana like, dark wood and white linens. Resort is spread out along the beach but all on beach level. Only resort with rooms right on the beach where you can walk off your first floor patio into sand. Fantastic food. Night Club. Some rooms do not have televisions. 5 restaurants. No nude sunbathing option. Huge sports complex across the street.
CTI - 2002, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2010, 2011, 2013
CN - 2003/2004 CSS - 2008
CSA - 2009, 2012, 2013, 2014
CB - 2015

Any resort as far as age...but depending on what you prefer, CN for us seemed to have more of a party atmosphere and more activity and CSS was a little more laid back and romantic...it may have just been the time of year we were there (October).
