Nice all inclusive resort
Linda S, Wyoming
Thu Feb 11 07:16:31 EST 2016
This is a very nice all inclusive resort. We have stayed at CSS and CN in the past as well as a few Sandals resorts. They all have features that are great as well as features that could be improved upon. The pros for CSA was the room, beach and surroundings. We stayed in a bottom floor Atrium room and loved it! At first we were disappointed that we did not get a top floor as requested but soon discovered the benefits of being on the ground level. We could walk right off of the porch to leave and come back to the room. We discovered this as we accidentally left the dead bolt locked and could not get into the room. We had to go to the front desk and they gave us a key to the porch door to use for the rest of the stay. Now why did they not tell us this and give us this key upon arrival? Our room was close to the beach, Palms restaurant and water sports. We could hear the music from the Palms in the evening but everything turned very quiet except for the lovely sound of the tree frogs after 10pm. Loved how we could open up the shutters and hear the jungle noise at night, this was so relaxing and we slept so well. Food was great everywhere. We did not eat at Feathers but very much enjoyed Lemon Grass one evening. Food for breakfast at the Palms was great with too many choices. Loved those omelets! We usually did lunch at the grill having jerk chicken, fish sandwiches or burgers. The beach is lovely and the water fabulous. The sand is so soft and you can walk the beach for miles. We did a lot of swimming, paddle boarding and took the hobby cat out a couple of times. You could see lots of star fish from the top of the ocean as the water was so clear. Cons: No greeting upon arrival. Confusing as how to check in, did not receive a welcome drink like all other resorts. Had to help carry our own luggage to our room. Once again incorrect sizes of return guest shirts...this seems to be common. Don't have correct sizes in stock, even though I filled out form 6 months prior. Mini bar not stocked as preferred...don't know why they even have return guests fill out the prearrival form as these are never stocked according to preference. But the next day mini bar was set up as desired by placing the form outside the door the first night. Room servicing was very unpredictable, some days done early others not until getting ready for dinner. And yes we also had to get up early to get a beach chair. I agree with others in how rude people are in hogging chairs. We saw one couple claim a palapa as well as additional sun chairs each day. Meanwhile others would be scouting for chairs later in the day. Also got very tired of being offered drugs. They were all very nice about moving on but constantly walking by on the beach offering smokes. The resort guards were great in monitoring the beach. If a vendor stayed a little too long or looked as if were bothering guests the guards were right there to escort them off. We took the hobby cat out with one of the watersports guys on a Sunday and he insisted that we go to "lobster island to drink, smoke and eat lobster" as the manager was gone and he could let us do that. Meanwhile he's cracking open beer on the hobby cat and drinking away. This made us very uncomfortable and could not wait to return to the resort..the next time my husband made sure that we were allowed to take the hobby cat out by ourselves. We had a very nice time at this resort, but most likely will not return. I would recommend to others as it has many great pros for an all inclusive. Food and drinks were great. Lovely grounds, majority of staff very friendly and accommodating. Rooms clean and relaxing, loved the hammock. But we generally like to try different resorts each time. There are so many wonderful places we have been and have to see yet. If returning to the same resort each year we would miss out on other adventures. More>

Very good....sorta....

We spent four nights at CSA recently. Overall, its a nice AI if you like the AI thing. The food is a notch above other AIs we have been to, and the facility and included stuff is good. But.... We arrived on a Wednesday at 2pm, and could not find a chair in the shade. The beach was filled and crowded--more crowded than we had expected. During the course of our stay, we realized there were way more claimed chairs (chairs with towels and stuff on them) than there were occupied chairs. People claim their chairs, and then leave. We saw people claiming palapas at 8:45pm the night before, setting out their stuff. Those people didn't show up til after 10am, and used the chairs for less than half the day, although their stuff was on the chairs all day. However, this is an AI resort, and there are lots of people. We like a bit more space, and shade without searching out and claiming a spot at 6am. That being said, the beach is very nice, and if you don't need shade, there is enough space to not be scrunched in with others. I liked the room we had a lot. It was a beachfront verandah suite, first floor, so we could walk out onto the beach. People have complained of worn rooms--I thought they were fine. Its not the Ritz, and its the tropics. The food was pretty good to very good, lots of fresh fruit. The bars were great too, although we don't drink much. The bartenders will whip up something fun every time though. I loved the ease and accessibility of the water sports. We took out kayaks twice, I asked someone to take me out on a Hobie Cat once, and we swam. I saw other taking out sailboats, stand up paddle boarding, sunset cat sail, SCUBA is even included (if you're certified). I think we learned we don't really prefer AIs, or at least some of the things we experienced here and at other AIs, like the search for " a spot" for the day, and the food and group activities does have a feel a bit like a cruise, which many people love too, but maybe its just not my thing. I will say there are many repeat visitors, happy guests, and people in groups together having a great time, and weddings happening daily while we were there, and I do think that this is one of the nicer AIs.

Honeymoon of all honeymoons

This has to be one of My favorite Jamaican destinations. Never feels crowded. 7 miles beach is amazing. Service is good but don't be in a hurry. Remember this is Jamaica and the culture is very laid back. Food is amazing and plenty to choose from. This will be a annual trip for my wife and I. More>

Ya mon, you gotta try it.

We had an ocean view veranda room. Worth the upgrade. The beach was just steps away from our room! A hot tub was right outside our room, steps away from our deck.the resort is smaller than ones we have been to but we liked it. It was easy to find where everything was located. The 7 mile beach was perfect for morning walks, white sand was pristine. There was a wide variety of ages young adults to quite elderly. Plenty activities and classes to attend. The food was super. Lemongrass restaurant is a must! Feathers restaurant was equally excellent. Be sure to make reservations right when you get there. Same with the catamaran and glass bottom boat rides. My niece got married there so we had special memories that were made! More>

Great Honeymoon
Erika F, Newberg, Oregon

We got married in Montego bay and moved to Negril for our honeymoon. We chose Couples swept away after a lot of research online. This hotel had a very different feel than the hotel we were at in Montego bay. It has a very laid back quiet atmosphere compared to the previous resort that had a party vibe. The Wifi was pretty slow and dropped in a lot of areas so if you need to be connected you may find issues. I felt like the food at couples swept away was okay for breakfast and lunch but dinner was amazing! I did feel like the servers at this resort were friendlier than our previous resort, even with the no tipping policy! I really enjoyed the entertainment staff and thought they were a lot of fun. This resort definitely had a ton of activities to choose from and if you are in to working out on vacation (not my thing so I didnt try it out) there are a ton of group exercise classes every day. I did have a few cons about this resort. Our bed was REALLY uncomfortable. It was as hard as the floor. There were many nights I woke up and my back hurt or I just couldnt get comfortable. I am only in my 30s, so for me to complain of back pain it was pretty bad. Our resort previous to swept away had amazingly comfortable beds so maybe it was an unfair comparison but I feel like they need to update their beds. We also had to listen to our neighbor slam the door multiple times every morning. In the older atrium rooms there are no windows just shutters and screens so you can hear everything. It would have been nice if they remind guests of this and to be courteous and not slam doors when leaving the room. The resort overall looked a little older too and seemed like it could use a little updating. It does have a charming feel but I feel like the bathrooms and other areas of the resort could use some updating. We were in one of the atrium rooms that had a hammock on the patio so maybe some of the newer buildings are better but I dont know. Another con was the lack of available chairs on the beach. I had to wake up every day at 7am to go put our towels on the chair because I learned the first day that if I didnt we would not get a beach chair. Even getting down to the beach at 7 am and there were no chairs with the umbrella shade. There was still shade from the surrounding trees but it would have been nice to get a private shade. I talked to other people that said they got up at 5am and still could not get a shade so I dont know if people are reserving those the night before. Lastly, this hotel does not provide you with bottled water. Instead they give you a water thermos you can fill up around the resort. They are trying to conserve by not using plastic bottles but sometimes (In the middle of the night) it was frustrating that my only option was to leave the room or drink faucet water (which the hotel says is safe). I would have liked to have the option to have water bottles in the mini bar for use at night. During the day the water thermos seemed to work fine. Overall I thought the hotel was good and I would return but I don't think I was crazy about it like some of the people I talked to that have returned 5-10 times. More>
