Couples Sans Souci was amazing

We enjoyed our stay so much that we want to come back here next year. The entire staff weather they were grounds crew, watersports, maids, etc always asked if everything was OK. The staff here go out of their way to make sure you are happy.

Fantastic Resort, Incredible Resort
Jun 26 2017
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.

There was a problem at check-in.
Mar 08 2016
A room for us at the category of room for which we paid was not available at check-in. We were located to a less expensive room, and were not relocated to a higher grade room until after 2:30 the next day. Our luggage had to be ready to be transferred in the early morning, so we could not unpack or get to our swimsuits for almost 24 hours after we arrived. We feel that we "lost a day of our vacation". We were given a $100 room credit for the first night, but it was not enough to offset taking away our time to relax and be settled in for the week.

Have stayed at Couples on 5 occasions

The resort is generally outstanding. Food is great, service is exceptional. Staff is generally wonderful. We have now stayed at Couples on 5 occasions. Each time we have had exactly the SAME problem. We book a penthouse 8 months to a year in advance. We arrive and the front desk says " I'm sorry we have to penthouse available for you but we are willing to downgrade you and give you $100 in resort credit". Thank you NO. So the first night is spent in a low end room and the entire next day is spent waiting for a room to come available while the front desk staff keeps telling you that you really don't want the room you have booked. WHAT IS THE PROBLEM????

Excellent friendly service at a magical place

We spent 11 nights here at the end of the rainy season, just after Thanksgiving. Had generally good sunny weather and enjoyed the inclusive watersports, the Scuba in particular. Everyone was really friendly and service was excellent. There is a large and popular naturist beach which we did not use, but that took any pressure off the other facilities on the beach and pool, so everyone was happy.

Fabulous resort

This was our 15th time at Couples but the first time I've submitted a review! We have been to all four properties but Sans Souci is our favourite. So much so that we chose it for our wedding this time and have already booked to go back next year. We love the sprawling nature of the resort, the beautiful gardens with the lake, Crackers the parrot, the first-class food, the au naturel beach, and of course the wonderful staff! Of particular mention this time was Tessa in the beauty salon who did my wedding hair and makeup and made me feel like a million dollars! Then of course there is Milton, the events organiser, who we adore. Pierre is a top rate general manager. He is very visible, always walking the grounds, chatting to both staff and guests, but unassuming at the same time. In a previous visit, when we had a problem, he went out of his way to sort it out. We will definitely be returning time and time again.

Enjoyable Relaxing Holiday

Third Couples property that we visited and of the three we agree that this one is the best. We arrived 11/17 and stayed through 11/24. The weather was not the best while we were there but it was still a relaxing vacation. First we were told we got an upgraded room but in reality we got exactly what we paid for just not in the location we requested which turned out to be a blessing. The B block seems to have been refinished where D, what we requested, was not but is in the future plans. Room was nice and housekeeping kept it in perfect condition throughout our stay. Only thing missing was a door for the shower so it could be kept warm. Very challenging since the water barely got warm in the shower despite the faucets getting nice and hot. Food was always good. Casanova was the best of the restaurants but none disappointed. The room service was really quick for what we ordered (nachos, sandwiches) no matter when we called. Longest wait was no more than 20 minutes. My wife is gluten free and she never had any issues. Dishes were noted as being gluten free on little chalkboards. Staff run activities were limited due to weather but nothing against the resort or staff. Scuba was good when we were able to get out. Some rough seas caused cancellation of the trip. The beaches were nice but not much for sunsets at "Sunset Beach". Staff kept the beaches clean with all of the seaweed that washed up due to weather and storms. The resort had to get what seemed to be outside help with the cleanup on Sunset Beach as a small forest seemed to wash up overnight. The hot tub and jacuzzi were hit or miss. Sometimes one would be warm sometimes it would not. Overall would we go again...definitely! Just hope for better weather next time.

Wonderful Resort and People.

This resort will exceed expectations. The staff are incredible and really make the difference when comparing this resort to others. My wife and I took full advantage of the free water sports, especially the water ski/wake boarding and sailing. the A la Carte food is incredible for an all inclusive and the waiters/waitresses are incredibly nice and attentive. The rooms are very comfortable although they were slightly dated but I was told they were soon to be renovated. Thank you San Souci for an incredible stay, we will definitely be back in the near future.
