Wonderful Experience at Couples San Souci!
PATRICK T.
Oct 31 2018
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
TYSON C.

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.

This is the 3rd Couples resort we have been to and this one is awesome. The resort is kept spotless, the service is awesome and the food great. Highly recommend this resort to anyone and especially to the more mature clientele.

4th Time Here
barbaradave, Brighton, Canada
Tue Jan 15 02:26:04 EST 2019
We were contemplating trying another resort this year but decided to return to Sans Sousi for the 4th time. Over the years we have made some very good friends here and it's great to see them. We are also confident we will be getting great value for our dollar. In talking to some other guests, they have tried other resorts but seem to return here. Two of our areas of concern have been rectified. The WiFi was painfully slow, it's now lightning fast and the hot water in A Block really wasn't at peak shower times, now it's hot. When the staff is singing they're happy and these folks sing a lot, happy staff, happy guests. And they all seem to have great voices! The evening entertainment has improved and the food at all the outlets is wonderful. The bartenders are a great source of entertainment and there seems to always be a great discussion about something around the bar with everyone participating. With only 150 rooms and a maximum 300 guests it's small enough that you end up greeting or at least smiling at most others. My wife has always gone for the message and this was my first time. It was extremely relaxing with the sound of the waves lapping against the rock, highly recommended. We spent our days on the AN beach, always plenty of loungers and tiki huts available. Two tips here, bring along water shoes as there are sea urchins there and I can attest they hurt, the shoes take care of that and if you have never been to a AN beach don't wait until you last day to try it, you 'll kick yourself. Looks like we'll be going back next year which is a pretty good testament for Couples Sans Sousi.

Amazing !!

My husband and I were here the week before Christmas and it was our first time out of the US. We were beyond pleased with our decision to come here and it definitely exceeded our expectations! The resort was beautiful, the rooms clean and spacious, the food top notch and delicious , room service was quick, the staff was hard working and always friendly , the couples massages in the hideaway were incredible and hearing the waves and feeling the ocean breeze added to the experience! The atmosphere was great and being that the resort is on the smaller side, you never felt crowded! We loved every minute of our stay and only wish we could have stayed longer!! We loved the Au natural beach and had so much fun "hanging out" literally and figuratively! The games and activities were fun and the food was the best ! We actually felt less judged there than at the main beach and everyone was friendly and fun to talk to! You can do as little or as much as you want! We will definitely be back! We can't thank you enough for your hospitality!

Honeymoon Trip

We went to Couples San Sochi over July 4th (just getting to review now but still relevant!) This resort was exactly what we wanted for our honeymoon. If you are looking for constant entertainment and late nights, this would not be the resort for you. There is a family atmosphere at Couples, and it is small enough that by the end of the week you are easily on a first name basis with the workers and entertainment crew. We left meeting other honeymooners who we have already reconnected with since our trip. We got a complimentary couples massage (30 or 45 min- SCORE!) The staff, and everyone in Jamaica, was so welcoming. We especially loved Ariel in the water sports who went above and beyond his "duties"... oh and helped find my husbands wedding ring in the ocean 3 days after getting married *doh!* Ariel, you're the best! We thought the food was amazing. Breakfast was a fresh buffet every morning, all the dinners were individualized meals you ordered and were absolutely amazing. Lots of variations of pumpkin served in dishes. For lunch you are an easy walk to the buffet from the beach or you can easily grab a burger and fries right at the grill on the beach. The only complaint is in between major meals times, snacks were limited unless you ordered from the grill. The ice cream machine is a nice touch right by the beach, but it was broken most of the time. The beach was beautiful and calm, but spaces/chairs did max out quickly (we weren't even there at the busy time of the year) and so we had to resort to the pool.There are 2 main pools. The mineral pool over on the lobby side of the resort was a nice relaxing area that tended to be more quiet. Each chair has a float as a cushion- this was a nice touch for comfort while out of the water and comfort for floating IN the water! :) Must check out the grotto- I hoped for the "healing" powers but loved the little fishies! We stayed in building G (I think)- it was the last building by the stairs that took you down to the beach area. Lucky us, we had the BEST view for a cheaper stay (pic attached!!) The bathroom shower was so open, very nice touch. I read reviews before going about the amount of stairs at this resort, it really isn't that bad. If you have an issue with stairs, get a room down by the pool and beach then you don't have to walk- it's not that bad. Supposedly Couples is known for their nudist accommodations, this beach is called "sunset beach" and you must be in the nude to go to this beach until after 5pm. This beach is secluded so it provides a sanctuary for people who embrace it but doesn't intrude on others on the main beach. I kind of wish we would have been brave for a day! Drive to and from the airport is kind of a drag, they do stop for a bathroom break for you halfway, though! Only complaints: 1. The rooms are outdated, no vacation is cheap, there could be potential to spruce up the stay for the guests! 2. My brother and sister in law ordered a honeymoon "treat" that was to be a surprise delivered to our room. After a few days, my brother asked (because we hadn't mentioned getting anything) so I inquired with the hotel- they had no record of the order, but didn't have a problem charging his credit card upon order. I had to take care of this item, and was disappointed I had to jump through hoops for my own "surprise." Also, the gift was a fruit plate with chocolates and a bottle of champagne... for over 50 bucks. Very disappointing considering we could have our mini fridge stocked with a bottle of champagne every day free of charge and desserts could be grabbed at dinner.
