Best Honeymoon Resort!

Wonderful Experience at Couples San Souci!

We had a wonderful experience at Couples San Souci! I liked that the accommodations used to be apartments, so it's more of a suite than just one room with a bed - it was nice to be able to get up and move around without disturbing my husband, who sleeps much later than I do. The grounds are so beautiful, and we enjoyed exploring all the paths and little nooks. This resort is probably better for more fit people, since there are a TON of stairs, and it was quite a hike from our room at one end of the resort to the beach and restaurants on the other end. All the staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful. The food and the drinks were top notch. We appreciated the variety and the quality. I enjoyed complimentary activities including yoga, aquacise, snorkeling, kayaking, boat ride, and trip to Dunn's River Falls. My only complaint is that the bed and pillows were a bit hard.

Fantastic Resort, Incredible Resort

The resort is incredible. It is not overly large, and is built on several levels of on the hill beside the beach, so it feels rather small and private. The staff are very personable and friendly. They remember you (and your drinks). We loved this resort compared to much larger ones where you are just a number. This resort also has the highest percentage of repeat guests compared to the other Couples. It was around 48% of guests were repeat guests while we were there. That's incredible! We certainly hope to be a repeat guest. The only thing to consider is that it is a 2hr van ride from the airport (which has a Couple lounge area and free beer). They also ask you to tip the driver and the person loading your bags on the van. Otherwise everything else is included and you are NOT to tip the staff at the resort. No tipping pressure was very nice. The meals were fantastic, the best we've had. The water sports activities are all included. We snorkeled twice, kayaked, paddle boarded, and did the glass bottom boat. The only downside we really experienced is that the water sports staff that actually take you out (they are in blue water shirts) are not quite as friendly as the rest of the staff. They frequently are the only ones there to answer questions or help you reserve your spot, and they are vague with their responses, or act as if you are bothering them at times. Other times, there was a separate girl working the sports reservations booth which was helpful. But there were several times we almost missed our activity because they were vague and told us to wait, only to see another guy walk over to the boat without anyone saying anything to us and running to it before he left. They need a "waiting area" or better directions for what people should do that have never done the activities before.

Another amazing trip to Couples Sans Souci! We have celebrated a honeymoon, anniversary and a birthday there and can't wait to go back! It was glorious relaxing and having everything taken care of after working so hard back home in order to go on vacation! Cannot say enough to give it proper justice! Love everything about the resort! Thank you!!!

The size of the resort was perfect for our honeymoon. Not too big. Not too small. The hotel staff was accommodating and friendly. The food was a fair, not great, not too awful. Options for included water sports and activities were a great way to expand our honeymoon experience. I highly recommend a couples massage in the Hide Away hut on the cliff over the ocean, an experience I will never forget.

Top Notch Resort
OttawaGuy99, Ottawa
Wed Feb 20 09:29:51 EST 2019
I gave Couples Sans Souci 5 stars because overall, it is a superior resort. The Grounds It is a large sprawling resort built on the side of a hill so there are a lot of stairs from the lobby to the beach. However, I believe there are only about 300 guests so you never feel crowded. The grounds are beautiful with so many little hidden places and pools if you want to have some privacy in a tropical paradise. I would recommend a beach-front room. No stairs and only steps to the beach. The Rooms Ours was very nice, completely renovated and large bathroom with two sinks. The shower was a bit puzzling with a lumpy stone floor and a half-open glass enclosure but there was always hot water. In the mini-fridge, they supply free water, soft drinks and beer. The Beaches There are two beaches completely separated by a point of land. One is the nude beach. The regular beach is not large but nice. It is protected by a reef so there are small waves. Easy to get a chair any time and lots of trees and palapas if you want shade. The one downside is you can only go in the water up to your knees. Watersports Easy to get kayaks, sailboats, water bicycles etc. any time. Couples owns the equipment, the watersports guys are on staff and everything is free. Some other resorts hire a watersports company that charges for example $20 to take out a sail boat. I believe waterskiing and scuba are also free although we didn't try it. A downside is the watersports guys are very explicit in asking for tips. Free inclusions A trip on the glass- bottom boat and an excursion to Dunn's River Falls are free. Food There are three restaurants. All have open-air sections and two have amazing views of the ocean. The food was superior but the selection was not as good as Iberostar Grande. I had steak three times and two of them were really tender. We were offered lobster once and it was good. The breakfast buffets had limited choices and were sometimes out of key things like pineapples. Entertainment This is where Couples Sans Souci is really superior to every other resort we have tried including Iberostar Grande. They had live shows every evening, usually with a very good house band and professional (outside) singers. We especially enjoyed Shiam Beckford singing and playing acoustic guitar on the beach beside a bonfire. He is an amazing talent. The man who did the Bob Marley tribute on Bob's birthday was also exceptional. They also had a couple of shows in the afternoon on the lawn which were very good - steel drums, folk singers and dancers. Other than that, the atmosphere during the day is very, very, very quiet. There is no one on the microphone telling you what is happening, there is little or no music around the pools and no music on the beach. There are some activities around the resort but you have to read the activities for the day and search them out. At Jewel Paradise Cove they had a speaker pointed towards the beach and played low-volume music all day. We enjoyed that and would recommend it to Couples. One day, there was a nature tour of the grounds that we would have enjoyed but it was way too early. We are seniors but it doesn't have to be so quiet during the day. We would like a little bit of life. Overall, I would highly recommend Couples Sans Souci.

Wonderful resort

The resort is located near Ocho Rios, Jamaica, about and hour and half ride from the airport in Montego Bay. This was our second time staying at this property and it won't be our last. The place has 150 rooms which is small compared to other Jamaican resorts. It is located on a small private bay with a variety of rooms, some on the beach and others on the hill overlooking the ocean or bay. There are many things we love about this resort, but the many thing is the staff. They are wonderful, friendly and helpful. This includes everyone you meet on the property, from the waiters/waitresses to the grounds keepers. The food is plentiful and good. Breakfast and lunch is served buffet style at the main restaurant or at the two beach restaurants. Evening meals are served at the main restaurant or at another restaurant located near the main lobby. Reservations are needed at both places. There are one or two weekly galas hold on the lawn near the beach. The other fun part of our experience at the resort was the entertainment. There is entertainment associated with the galas, but there is also a smaller venue for nightly performances. We found that all the entertainers were wonderful. The rooms can vary based on their locations and price, but all appeared to be clean and well maintained. Our room this year had a comfortable king bed, plus a small sitting area with couch and TV and patio. The shower was huge with a great shower head and plenty of hot water. The recreation options was many, everything from scuba diving, sailing to laying on the beach. My wife did a refreshing scuba class and the instructor was excellent. We dove on several occasions and always felt the staff was knowledge and the equipment was good. The rest of the time we "veged out " on the beach. There are two beaches, one main beach near the core of the resort and a nude beach a short walk to the other side of the property. It is not a clothes optional beach, it is nude, no clothes allowed. Both beaches have pools located nearby as well as a bar and small restaurant. There is also a fitness room with numerous treadmills, weight machines and other exercise equipment. They have a mineral, salt water, pool, a juice bar, a martini bar, and many other fun amenities. The resort provides transportation to and from the airport. This is a wonderful resort.

This is an All Inclusive Resort Hotel located ocean side ins Ocho Rios, Jamaica. One of the benefits of an all inclusive resort is all you food beverages and entertainment is included in the price of your stay. The food is of the best quality and taste with excellent service at every meal. There are three different restaurants to choose from each with a different nationality of food theme. There are numerous daytime and nighttime activities to choose from. Each night offers entertainment from a variety of local talent. I personally know couples that have been to this resort more then twenty times and they keep coming back time after time because the quality and service is that good. You have to try it to really appreciate the experience.

Couples Sans Souci is a terrific resort if you’re looking for a more low-key holiday. The many return visitors are a testament to the success of this resort. Terrific service, wonderful food, lovely rooms and unusual grounds that are fun to explore - Sans Souci has it all.

A wonderful trip - again!

This was our first time at Sans Souci but third time for Couples. There are no bad days at a Couples resort! The food is fantastic, the service is perfect, the staff ensure you have a perfect stay - I can not even think of any suggestions. Our room was serviced twice a day with clean towels and turn down service every evening. The entertainment was so fun! Loved the Jamaican entertainment for Bob Marley’s birthday! Of course, we enjoyed the Au Natural beach (there really is no judgement there)! The entire week was paradise! Thank you for making it possible for some “country folks” from Missouri!
