Fantastic Resort, Incredible Resort
TYSON C.
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.
KATHY D.
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.

Great place but never again

Great atmosphere, food, service, hospitality, drinks, activities and facilities. However, this is offset by the enormous amount of stairs you have to climb to reach the lobby and some venues. You ae OK as long as your room is on the ground level and you don't go up the multitude of steps. If you do, call for a ride.

We used to love going to Couples Resorts, but we are seeing the prices increase dramatically and the amenities are being taken away. Very disappointed to see Couples loose its luster. Won't be going back any time in the near future.

Ahhh where do I even begin? This place is just amazing. We spent our days at the pool with the swim up bar (bartenders were so much fun and so attentive) where we definitely over-indulged (hey its vacay!) and enjoyed trivia. We met lot of couples here and enjoyed chatting. When we needed some down time, we ventured to the mineral pool and the spring for some quiet time. The gazebo over there is the perfect place to just sit and enjoy some time with your significant other. We loved roaming the grounds just taking in all the foliage and views from every angle. All of the restaurants were so good, we loved just walking over to the open-air buffet at all hours and eating! The omelette station is to die for! Room service was really wonderful, too, and especially handy for midnight "drunken" snacks :) The gala was a wonderful evening, we really enjoyed it. They put on such a lovely event, from the decor, the ice sculptures, the entertainment and of course, the food. The service at CSS is hands down, the best we've had anywhere. We did a day-trip to Blue Spring up in the mountains- it was the only excursion we did and it was worth it! Just wished I'd taken a dramamine because those mountain roads make me nauseous. The springs are beautiful and a must see. Tip your guides! If you're adventurous... visit Sunset Beach (nude beach owned by Couples) We worked up the courage and went and it was a blast. YOLO right? And the sunsets are literally the best on that side. Even better when the sax player is there. We cannot wait to plan our next visit to Couples San Souci!

Another Amazing Trip !!!

Another amazing trip. our 10th time back, NO problems, if you do have a problem, just ask !! Food great!! drink great!! staff fantastic!! Met old friends and made new friends. All there to have a great time ! Slowly renovating the rooms, but even the old ones are still acceptable ! We stay in the G Block, a bit dated, but we love them ! Juts booked to go back for our 11th visit next year ! why go elsewhere when you are happy with what you have found. When the hotel has 40% repeaters, that says something !!!,

This resort is absolutely beautiful. The lay out and landscaping is far more enjoyable that the typical boxy resorts, probably the most memorable aspect for me is the the people. The resort staff are so friendly, they're fun, they stop to say hello and are will to help you or advise you every step of the way with anything they can. Amazing staff!!! Best trip of my life hands down

This was our 5th stay at a Couples property, and the third in a row at San Souci, and as always we cannot wait to return next year. The food was amazing, and we never felt that it was repetitive during our 8 days there. Bar service quick and the drinks were perfect, no matter which bar you were at, the staff was always happy to help. Beaches were both great, clean and well kept. We did not do anything from the water-sports area this trip but i can say for past trips the group of people there are amazing. Lastly the entertainment was great. We are not party people, we go to enjoy time with each other, if you are going for a loud party atmosphere this might not be the place for you, at least while we were there. will definitely be back, we booked our return trip already !

Simply gorgeous!

This was our first vacation together and we could not have asked for anything better. The views, the staff, the room were all top-notch. There were numerous food choices. The bartenders were entertaining and knew their drinks. Although we didn't do a lot of the available activities, we are looking forward to trying more on our next trip.
