For beach and water-lovers, an excellent selection of gear such as sea kayaks, snorkeling fins, masks, sailboats, and wind surfers are readily available. Need help getting started? You can get private lessons. Three swimming pools and five Jacuzzis are located throughout the property.

Six unique restaurants serve the finest international cuisine with Caribbean flavors: The Palms, Feathers (fine dining), Lemongrass (Thai-fusion), Patois Patio (Mediterranean fare with wood-burning oven), Alfresco Sea Grape Café and Veggie Bar, and Cabana Grill. Enjoy the festive atmosphere while sipping a Couples Sunset or Couples Mojito signature cocktail served at any of eight bars, including a swim-up option. After dinner, listen to international musical talent covering everything from steel drums to soul, reggae rhythms to rock 'n' roll. There's a beat to match every mood. The piano bar offers a chic indoor setting for cocktails and live entertainment five nights of the week, and transforms itself into a lively nightclub for the other two. Kick up your heels after dark as you embrace the spirit of this beautiful place.

4 night 5 day getaway

This resort is wonderful with great staff. I would highly recommend going there, nice quiet resort with beautiful rooms. The only thing we wished the resort had was more night life outside, once it hit about 9pm pretty much the outside was closed up and you have to go inside for nightlife. We would have liked a fire on the beach, music, and maybe the swim up pool bar open later. We are planning on going back for sure even with no night life :) on the plus notes they have plenty of activities for you to do, water and land! More>

this place will sweep you away for sure

food and drink are quite good and plentiful, with nice variety and numerous locations throughout the property; grounds are beautiful; rooms and facilities are well-kept and in island motif; nothing fancy; service is generally good, friendly, and accommodating; beach is superb and the surf is calm and refreshing; we would rate CSA 4 plus stars overall.

First of all, I would like to start by saying that this is a great resort for the value. This is especially true if you plan on Scuba diving or taking other excursions that are already included in the package. My wife and I purchased the standard room about 3 months early and spent about $345 a night. I did 2 dives everyday (this would normally be at least $150 a day per person) and then we took the Catamaran, Snorkel Trips, ate and drank until we got our money's worth. :) The flight into Jamaica was great and the hopper flight from Montego bay to Negril was also great. Everything went very smooth. The resort had us in our rooms very swiftly after getting out of the taxi. Keep dollars for the expected tips at the airport. The rooms were average.. Nothing special here at all, but hey.. Who wants to be in the room the whole trip? The fitness area is pretty awesome. You should def try it out. The meals were hit and miss. Some days were were highly impressed with the food and then some days we were disappointed.. Overall the food was above average though. Seagrapes does have THE BEST FISH TACOS I HAVE EVER HAD.. :) Don't worry about fighting over shade on the beach.. Plenty of Mangrove trees that have MANY open chairs beneath them. Unless you MUST have a Palapa, I wouldn't worry about playing the towel game. Scuba Diving team was great (Anthony, Julian, Craig (Carlton) and Shaggy). I think these guys have the most fun on the resort. They are the reason for the 4 stars. If you have never dove before, I HIGHLY recommend letting them take you on your first free Resort Dive and getting certified with them afterwards if you like it. This is the perfect place for Novice divers. Very little current, great visibility, average depths. The dive equipment is decent for the resorts. You don't really need to bring your gear, but i would recommend your own fins, skin, and computer at the least. The best part about the dive experience is that you can pick up your stuff at 8:30 and be starting your dive by 9. The entertainment needs some work. The steel drum band was awesome and the piano bar games were decent at times, but I feel like the nightlife was DEAD... In my opinion, you need to find a way to have some music playing on the dance floor at all times and have more than 1 CSA server/bartender in the piano bar area. It felt like a funeral in there every night.. Get the lighting right, get the music going earlier (less talking on the mic) and get the drinks flowing. Other than that, I was astonished to see how many people are return visitors to the resort. Don't get me wrong, it was nice and I recommend everyone partake in it, but we are going to try something else next time. We will be back one day soon, but not 3-25 years in a row.... Let me know if you have any other questions, and have a great vacation. Ya' Mon! More>

Had a great time here. Beautiful facilities and a friendly staff. This was our first time staying with Couples, we stayed for a week, and were there with two other couples. If you are a fan of SCUBA diving this resort is a wonderful place to stay. The A/C in our room was not quite functioning at 100% but did ok. When visiting Negril I highly recommend doing the One Love Tour. You will have to book it on your own as it is a local tour not ran by the hotel industry. More>

We are DEFINITELY going back!!

My husband and I went on a short trip for our anniversary to CSA. We usually like to go some place new every trip, but after visiting CSA we are definitely going to come back as often as we can! The location was beautiful, the food and drinks were delicious and we didn't even scratch the tip of the iceberg of all the fun stuff they had to do there! And best of all, the staff was SO friendly! Everyone was singing all the time. Haha, the guy making omelets was singing Sesame Street on the last day, it was quite endearing. Arrival: We flew into Montego Bay. After picking up our bags and going through customs we went directly to the Couples Lounge. Tip: There are people trying to guide you and they will end up making you pay to get you to the hotel, avoid them and go straight to the lounge where your free shuttle awaits. Once you clear customs and go through the class doors pass the money exchange, just walk left and it'll be straight in front of you. No need to ask for directions. Once there, they will give you unlimited beer and rum punch until it's time for the shuttle to depart. We must've been going to the hotel around rush hour because it took over 2 hours when really it should only take 1 hour and 15 minutes. Once we arrived, we were handed a wet towel and a champagne. We checked in quickly and the bell hop took our bags to our room. We tried to tip him, but they have a no tipping policy and the employees will tell you so. Room: We got upgraded to the Great House Verandah Garden Suite. The room was nice and cool. I wouldn't say it was lavish or fancy, but definitely comfortable. We were barely in our room. The bed was comfortable to us too. Grounds: We were close to the Greathouse Pool and swim up bar. We spent most of our time here. The bartenders were funny and bickered with each other teasingly. It was entertaining and made us laugh daily. The drinks were strong! There is a grill right next to the bar that serves amazing Jerk Chicken. There are stray animals that make their way onto the grounds. One sweet dog was scoring big time, but don't let them fool you! I saw him go table to table over the course of a few hours and he would only accept chicken.... he turned his nose up at the French fries. He definitely looked well fed. There are also kittens on the grounds. They were so cute. Don't feed them though, the staff feeds them and they are well taken care of. On the other side of the grounds was the big house where the entertainment takes place, another pool and where the buffet is in the morning. We didn't go to that side too often. Food: We made our reservations for the two restaurants upon check-in. We ate at Lemongrass the first night (I actually called ahead to ensure we could eat there the day we arrived). It was SO good. For breakfast the next morning we went to the buffet. I had them make me an omelet and was overwhelmed by all of the awesome choices! There were healthy choices, allergy-free choices, and not so healthy choices... whatever floats your boat, something for everyone. For lunch we ate at the grill next to the pool bar. Seriously, get the jerk chicken. We did make a reservation for Feathers one night, but my husband forgot nice shoes, so we ended up eating at Patois which doesn't require a reservation. Nothing we ate was bad. Stuff to do: We signed up to do the Sunset Catamaran Cruise (which is part of the price of the stay) when we checked-in. Even though it was sprinkling a bit that day, the cruise went on. We had so much fun. They serve beer and rum punch, dance, let you swim near the caves and go off the slide on the boat, all while soaking up the sunset. When you get back there is a chocolate fountain, fruit and mimosa's waiting for you on the beach. We went to Rick's one day. BRING YOUR BATHING SUIT! At Rick's you can cliff jump. They have different levels to jump from depending on how brave you are. We were planning to have our anniversary dinner at Ivan's (which is right next to Rick's) so we didn't bring suits and regretted it big time. We did grab dinner at Ivan's that even to catch the sunset. Ivan's is the main restaurant at Catcha Falling Star. They set us up at a table right on the edge of the cliff. The food was great (and lots of it) and the staff was happy. We watched the sun lower into the ocean over a candlelit dinner on the cliff. So amazing. There were SO many other things you could do, but we were only there for 2 whole days and didn't have time to do the rest. We wanted to paddleboard... they had cooking lessons too! We did bring out the floating cushions into the ocean and relaxed a little, ha, but remember the current is pushing your forward... I wasn't paying attention and before I knew it I washed up on shore. I noticed other groups relaxing had a person in the ocean anchoring them down and they all held onto the next person's float. GYM: My husband and I try to keep working out, even while on vacation. This was the absolute best gym we've ever been to! It had more than everything we needed. I do Crossfit and weight lift. There were dumbbells, barbells, plenty of weights, benches, a track, wall balls, Kettle bells and so much more. They give you a towel when you go to the gym and have water, Gatorade, aloe water and pineapple infused water there for you. The gym is actually on the other side of the road away from the rest of the CSA grounds. It is landscaped beautifully and you feel like you are working out in a tropical paradise. There is also a personal trainer there that will put you through a tough workout if you so desire. My husband took him up on his offer one day and it was challenging. TIPS: The beach is public and vendors and people selling weed will be on the beach. I wouldn't say there were tons of them, but we definitely ran into one every time we walked the beach. They are not pushy. We just politely said "No Thanks" and they left us alone. On the last day we were there, we just said "Respect" and gave them a fist bump. Also, there are security guards on the beach to monitor the vendors. A guard will stay in the vicinity of each vendor until they are past the hotel grounds. On the day you go home, you should receive a note in your room that says when your shuttle is leaving. If you don't get it just check at the front desk. Just know you leave many many hours in advance because it takes quite a bit of time to check-in once you get to the airport. This trip was amazing and we can't wait to go back!!!!!! Next time we are definitely going for longer. More>
