Guest Spotlight Series: Linda Johnston & Todd Hildebrandt

Hi Couples family,

This month we are featuring Linda Johnston and Todd Hildebrandt from Iowa. Sit back, relax and enjoy the /resorts/sans-souci">Couples Sans Souci daydream as told by these two love birds.

Linda Johnston and Todd Hildebrandt

Carrie: How many times have you been to Couples Resorts, and which properties?
Todd & Linda: 10 times, and all to Couples Sans Souci.

Carrie: How has Couples played a role in your personal love story?
Todd & Linda: Linda had never been on a plane, and I (Todd) really wanted to go to Jamaica. So, she gave me a price limit thinking she was safe and wouldn’t have to get on a plane, BUT I was able to book a trip - our first trip was 5 nights, and as soon as we arrived we knew this is where we would be married!!! It was so breathtaking that she cried. We thought things like this only existed in magazines, (she lived a very sheltered life in Iowa, ha!) It is true, the saying "as soon as you go, you know"!! The next year we were married at Couples Sans Souci, and we have vowed to return every year as we have to this point. We were lucky to go twice one year, and that is our goal in the future! Linda will tell you it is where her soul truly feels at home. . . 

Carrie: What are the top three pieces of advice you would give to a first-time guest at Couples?
Todd & Linda: 
- Take in EVERYTHING - every moment of every day - it goes by way to fast.
- Enjoy each other. 
- Be sure to see the sunrise and sunset.

Carrie: In your opinion, what makes Couples so unique?
Todd & Linda: 
So many things, it is hard to put into words, except... "Once you go, you know!!"
Staff- from the wait staff to grounds keepers to house keeping - They are family to us!!
Security to management to chefs and cook staff, on-site venders... they all are just wonderful!!
We love Sans Souci because of how private it is, as it makes us feel we are on your own private island.

Carrie: In a single word, describe what Couples means to the two of you.
Todd & Linda: RELAXATION

Carrie: Which staff members or fellow guests do you most look forward to seeing when you return?
Todd & Linda: There are too many to name because they are all family!! We always look forward to Shekera Cassie, Cleon, Mr.B, Hugh Mc Coy, EASTON (who was our very first bartender on our very first trip!!), Martin, Kirk and Albert (Todd’s Bones Playing team!!!), and it goes on and on and on. . . 

Carrie: Fill in the blank: Our ideal day at Couples consists of ______________
Todd & Linda: Daytime is Linda on a lounge chair and Todd diving and playing bones with Kirk and Albert. At night, we enjoy the evening together as a couple relaxing. We will do dinner and hot tub, and if we stay up late, we'll venture to the piano bar and entertainment to meet up with all the wonderful couples and visiting with others we have met over the years.
