Loved our stay!

My wife and I spent 6 night at Couples Sans Souci and we loved out stay. Very relaxing and the staff was outstanding!!! The property was beautiful. Our beach front room was very nice and roomy with a large bathroom. Not a lot of meal options but we enjoyed all of our meals. Loved the water sport options and the Dunn’s River Falls excursion was fun! All included!! We had a couples massage that was very romantic overlooking the ocean on a cliff. Highly recommend! We have visited more beautiful places such as Hawaii, but the overall experience at couples was by far our best vacation experience to date. The staff made the difference. If you want a low key, relaxing vacation, this is the place. If you want a high energy, fun night life, this is not the place. With the exception of our friend Matt twerking at the Balloon Bar on Monday night. LOL. Don’t thing the staff was ready for that. We will return!!!!

Not as good as I expected

I began optimistic with CSS, there are tons of positive reviews. Unfortunately, the resort didn't meet my expectations. Getting to the resort takes 2hrs from MBJ. The driver which the resort supplies was great. The check in process was alright too. I was overwhelmed with how many steps there are at the resort. It's not the resorts fault and I was prepared for the climbs. The room was large but outdated. Apparently only section A &B were renovated. The room refrigerator is stocked with beer, soda, water. You can request rum or a few other items. I requested rum 2 days in a row and received nothing. We had dinner at palazinna 2 nights. That was a joke. 1st time it was a buffet and the food was ok, nothing great. Our 2nd night they were out of the wine we wanted, the appetizer we requested was out, and I ordered dessert that never made it's way to the table. The bars would frequently run out of beer and vodka. The bartenders were friendly though. The nightlife was probably great for older patrons. My wife and I weren't feeling it. I will give it to them, the resort is kept very clean. But I'm accustomed to a higher level of quality in food, accommodations, service.

We had a fantastic Honeymoon!!

We decided on Couples San Souci for our honeymoon. It was our first visit to Jamaica and our first stay at a Couples resort. The resort was incredible! When we went it was the off season so it was a bit quiet but this made it all the better. Even though our trip was during hurricane season, the weather was still relatively good, with only a few rain showers and still plenty of sunshine and warmth. The resort sprawls for what seems like forever, there are lots of little quiet areas to explore and it is very tropical. If you take the time to explore the resort you will find hidden hammocks, gazebo's, private jacuzzis and swings. The staff are amazingly friendly, and the food was absolutely incredible.Everyone was very attentive and helpful. We stayed in the beach front rooms and had an awesome view of the beach from our balcony! Everything was very clean at the resort and they had lots of activities going on during the days, and had live entertainment each evening. We would highly recommend this resort!! We are looking forward to returning for our future anniversary!

Well, number two of my bucket list was taking advantage of the au natural Beach at Couples, San Souci in Jamaica. I was truly surprised that the au natural Beach and pool were actually more populated then the main Beach and pool. Well any weight my review is great. If you're looking for a place to go as a couple this was a good vacation not overly expensive but provides everything that you want and all the luxuries that you need. There are 4 bars and for restaurants available on the grounds. The two major pool which is what we'll call the Main and au naturale both have swim up bars that are very accommodating and normally the Gathering point for many of the activities in the pool. Each Peach also has Noble restaurant during the day and the main beach restaurant is open till late after dark for dinner dining on a very casual but yet very comfortable and romantic location. All the rooms seem to have a great view although I have to tell you the ground is hilly and requires a lot of up and down stairs to get to some of the buildings. If you get tired easy get in shape before you go. If I had any comments that were on a not good level it was the fact that a lot of the material that you are given, binder in the room, hand out at the check-in counter and what you might see on line very differently in the information they provide and sometimes contradict each other. There is one main restaurant for breakfast lunch and dinner although the book in the room only says it is open for lunch and dinner. The beach restaurant or Bella Vista is open for lunch and dinner and has its own bar what is only 50 feet from the main pool and it's bar. The Casanova restaurant is the primary dress up Restaurant with a full service and has the balloon bar adjacent. It is also a Jason to the main patio were at night the entertainment takes place on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. The other two days, Tuesday and Friday are major entertainment days with a giant Buffet on the main lawn and entertainment of All Sorts on the main stage. Is a very nice evening to get together and meet new people and tables accommodate 6 through 10. The cuisine is everything you would want regardless of whether your meat eater or vegetarian or a vegan. We were not able to do some of the water activities because of the tropical storm that had cause the water to be a little bit too rough and I would not say that the glass bottom boat is really worth going out on since you really don't see any fish. Reports I did get from the people who went snorkeling or scuba diving said it was nice. We did go to Dunn's Falls and climb from the beach up to the top approximately 930 ft. It's a little touristy but an experience that you would probably enjoy and the guys are really good. A DVD is available of your climb if you chose to buy it for $40. There are two souvenir stores so to speak on the property one is Souvenirs and everything else you would like to get from medicine to snacks and the other is primarily jewelry. Couldn't tell you how expensive the jewelry was, didn't ask. We had a good group of folks there who would enjoy doing many activities which created a great atmosphere especially around the main pool and Main lawn where many of the entertainment activities take place during the day, everything from pool volleyball to bingo to trivia to Jenga to croquet. We took the transportation and hotel all through the resort and there was a small Lounge in the airport in Jamaica where we waited for our transportation to the hotel. It was about an hour-and-a-half trip to San Souci and Tower island is a bit further in the same direction. There is an opportunity to visit the tower Island Resort should you desire on two of the days just to see what it's like for possible future visits. We did not partake in that. All in all I would say it's well worth your money in time to check this out whether you go to both beaches or not is up to you but maybe you want to step outside of your box just for once. Lol!
