Guest Spotlight Series: Mr. & Mrs. Gallops

Hi Couples family,

This month we are featuring the lovely and active Jill and Michael Gallops who call Couples Sans Souci and Couples Negril their home away from home. Read more about their love story with Couples below in this month's Guest Spotlight.

Carrie: How many times have you been to Couples Resorts, and which properties?
The Gallops: We've been 7 times. Six times to Couples Sans Souci and once to Couples Negril. We are booked to come back again this month!

Carrie: How has Couples played a role in your personal love story?
The Gallops: We discovered Couples 7 years ago and since then haven't gone anywhere else as a couple to vacation! Couples has become our "go to" vacation spot, our getaway and our place to rejuvenate our marriage. We love it so much we renewed our vows there on our 10th anniversary!

Carrie: What are the top three pieces of advice you would give to a first-time guest at Couples?
The Gallops:
1) Forget everything, or as much as possible, that is back home. Let your worries drift away!
2) If you've ever ben curious, go to SSB the first day!
3) It's easy to get caught up in the magic of CSS and the new friends you make so be sure to find time to focus on each other!

Carrie: In your opinion, what makes Couples so unique?
The Gallops: The staff makes you feel like family from the moment you arrive - and they remember you when you return (and you WILL return!). We've even become friends on social media and keep up with several staff members as they grow their families and they branch out and pursue their dreams!

Carrie: In a single word, describe what Couples means to the two of you.
The Gallops: Jill - paradise; Michael - home

Carrie: Which staff members or fellow guests do you most look forward to seeing when you return?
The Gallops: There are many but our favorites are probably Jheanel, Veronique, Sasha and Sanita (who sadly isn't there anymore!)

Carrie: Fill in the blank: Our ideal day at Couples consists of _______________
The Gallops: Probably not what some would think of on vacation - at least Michael's! Michael starts out by going for a 5-10 mile run or working out in the gym at 5 AM! Jill sleeps in and usually wakes to coffee being delivered around the same time Michael gets back to the room. We head out for a leisurely breakfast and then go for a walk together - up and down the stairs, around the spa and back to the beach. We might wander over around the pond or wade in the water for a while before heading back to our room to change and head over to SSB. Now that we've been so many times we don't go on a lot of excursions, we just hang out at SSB all day unless we're going for a massage (since we can't have them on SSB anymore) or going shopping in the gift shop or Jewel Box. We usually hang out there until dark and then head back to the rooms to change for dinner. Sometimes we eat dinner alone and other nights we like to gather with our friends - new ones as well as old ones! After dinner we may head over to the Jacuzzi at SSB or over to the mineral pool for a nice cool dip! We always end the night with our special alone time and fall asleep to start all over the next day. It might seem boring and repetitive to some but it is heaven on earth to us!
