This is a very pretty Couples resort in Negril, Jamaica. I recommend to book through a travel advisor like I did that has connections for room locations, upgrades, etc. I have stayed at other 5 * resorts all over including Negril and overall the value is unbeatable. Situated on a beautiful stretch of beach offering awesome cuisine, lots of variety- but the service.....they cannot do enough to make you happy. The drinks aren't "watered" down either. I as concerned about that because that happens a lot at some "not so big name" resorts. The watersports guys were friendly and helpful. I will be back when staying in Negril. More>

Spouse says a 10, I say a 9.

This was our first time at a Couples Resort and we would consider Couples Resorts again. Couples has their own lounge at the airport, this where you check in to wait on your transfer to your resort. There, they have a bathroom and complementary beverages. The ride to Negril takes around an hour and a half. We, having been to Jamaica before, found the ride interesting........for you first timers, you might find it a little scary. Enough said! Arrived at the resort at 2PM and checked in; our room was ready for us......an Ocean Veranda room. The rooms are simple, I think someone described them as 'island casual' and I would agree. The rooms are clean and adequate, but in need of some minor maintenance. The bathroom shower has 'zero entry', but the slope to the drain is a little too slight and if you are not careful, you can flood the bathroom. I recommend that you don't turn the shower on high and make a towel dam to keep the rest of the bathroom floor dry. Each room is supplied with 2 reusable water bottles (that you can keep). Many people take these bottles to the beach.......each bar has fresh water and infused water that you can use to refill your bottles. You can also can customize as to which refreshments you want your refrigerator stocked with. There are several bars along the beach. The first full day we were there, I thought the drinks were a little watered down, but after that the drinks tasted fine to my palate. The bartenders at the pool bar were the best, very tasty drinks! The resort does have several complementary activities. One of which is the sunset cruise.......you need to sign up in the lobby and do it on the first day. It is a very enjoyable cruise......do bring your towel, camera, and wear your bathing-suit, as you will be wading (waist deep) in the water to board the boat. Other activities such as glass bottom boat, scuba diving and snorkeling, you sign up at the hut on the beach. These things you can only sign up the day before......and people are lined up before 8AM to sign up and by 8:20AM all of the slots are filled. We both found the food to our liking, never went hungry! Sometimes the waitstaff at the al-la-cate restaurants were a little slow in our opinion. One time, 4 different people came up to us asking what we wanted to drink and it still took 20 minutes to get the order....that seemed a little disorganized to us. We tried the fish tacos at the 'Sea Grapes', they tasted good but were a tad spicy (hot). Yes, there are vendors that walk up and down the beach.....some, a polite "no thank you" sends them on their way......a few others, not so much. Hey, it is a public beach, they have as much right to be there as you do. The beach at this resort is what makes it. Got to be one of the best beaches around. And the swimming area has a sandy bottom.....GREAT.......not once did I go into the pool and I am a pool person. Nice soft sand, big beach and swimming area, whats not to like. Would we recommend this resort........YES. More>

My partner and i went to this hotel in January 2016 - this was our first time to Jamaica and to a 'Couples' hotel. The hotel was was in a great location, right on the the beach front. The complex is well looked after, the rooms are large, airy and clean. The staff are amazing, they made this holiday for us, friendly, helpful and always there with a smile on their face. We fell in love with the resort and the people there and would say it was our best holiday to date. The food was suberb, catered for everyones needs and tastes, the drinks flowed daily and the weather (apart from one blustery day) to just what we needed - bright blue skys and hot sunshine! More>

Amazing Island Vacation!

Ok FULL REVIEW time from first timers.... Long Post: *Couples Lounge: Didn't experience it much as we got suckered into AirLink. Wasn't overly impressed they allowed them to promote inside the lounge but it worked. *Check In: At first was a little confusing but once a staff realized we came separate from the bus we were welcomed with cool towel and champagne. Our flight landed at 11:25 and were on beach with a drink by 12:30. Room was ready around 3:30 so we changed, ate, drank and swam! *Room Beachfront Verandah Suite: Perfect! Absolutely loved our room 3323 and the view was amazing!! It was a simplistic island vibe room and exactly what we were looking for. The shower does make the floor a little wet but nothing a couple towels can't fix. The bed was very hard and we were going to ask for a mattress pad but never did. The room walls were fairly good but a few time rowdy neighbors were loud at night. All in all would pick the category again!! The mini bar was stocked shortly after we got in the room with most of what was requested but in all honesty we very rarely used it. Only requested stocking twice then never touched it. Room breakfast was 'ok'.. We ordered it once and never ate any of it except coffee. Decided to just eat daily at one of the restaurants. *Lemongrass: Never ate here as we met some great people and decided to have International Buffet with all of them. *Feathers: Delicious and fantastic service!! Uncomfortable big fluffy pillows and high AC but well worth the visit and reservations *Restaurants: Hands down the food was amazing! Never once had a bad meal! Our favorites were at the cabana bar grill snapper sandwich and beef patties. Loved the international buffet and the Marlin eggs Benedict at Patios. Wished there were just a little more variety for breakfast foods, pasta and seafood such as crab and shrimp but nothing that would stop us from returning. *Private Dinner on Beach: Although the food was to die for I am not sure I'd do this again due to the amount of other ones going on and how rude and loud the table was next to us. They were loud, yelling, swearing and just drunk. Kinda ruined the experience. *Watersports: we did snorkeling twice and LOVED it!! So much fun and so much to see! The Watersports desk was great to work with. The cat cruise is a must! The cave swimming, drinks, music and friends was a perfect way to end the day!! *Beach Vendors: There really were not a lot of them and a simple no thank you was good. Security was literally on TOP of keeping them away. I even saw the lady guard chase one off with a stick! *Complimentary Photo Shoot: Jamal did a fantastic job making us comfortable and having fun with us! He taught us a few cultural things and would do whatever we wanted too or where we wanted to go. The photo desk staff was hands down some of my favorite! They were so accommodating and easy to work with! *Check Out: super easy and simple. Straight to the point. ***THINGS TO KNOW*** -Try all the soup -Sign up for snorkeling a day in advance and get in line at 730 am -Sign up for cat cruise right away -Try the snapper sandwich -Find the fun chairs up above The Palms -We didn't experience sand gravity but water gravity!! All we wanted to do was float drink and float! Didn't do 3/4 of the things we said we would do -Don't just jump in the hot tubs, they are scalding hot! -There is PLENTY of shade and floats! -Treat staff with respect -This resort is focused around the beach! If you want a pool resort this is not your place. All in all we cannot wait to return to CSA! We are still young and want to experience other islands but we will return!!! More>

Nice all inclusive, but not as good as first visit.

Our first visit to CSA was about seven years ago. We had a great experience and decided to go back to Negril and split our time between Rockhouse on the cliffs and CSA on the beach. A little disappointed this visit. Our ocean view room had no ocean view at all since the trees are too high and blocked any view completely. We filled out our beverage request for our room, and never were given more than 3 beers at a time no matter what we requested, but our request for juices and soda was filled just fine (although all drinks when brought to room are piss warm). As suspected last visit, the liquor is not poured freely so you have to ask for a floater if you want to taste it. We ended up buying a bottle of rum so we could mix our own. Not enough shady spots on the beach (plenty of chairs and floats) as people go throw their towels there and then leave. Food was good, but you do have to mix it up to not get bored with it. DO make reservations for the upscale restaurants and activities AS SOON AS YOU ARRIVE or may not get one as they fill up quick. Grounds not as nice as previous visit, and hot tub had to be 120* burning hot. Feral cats and dogs wondering around. I understand it's a problem, but safety and disease can be an issue with feral animals. Security lets beach vendors come on the beach even though they are not supposed to. Seems CSA has lost a lot of its charms in a few years. I think it's just too big now. Many weddings while we were there, and would be a great place for that. Take advantage of the inclusions as they are built in to the price. Our non-inclusive stay on the cliffs was very comparable in price even when adding in meals, drinks and activities. If you've never been to a Couples resort, you will like it assuming you want all inclusive. Wish I had not gotten spoiled at our cliff resort before coming to CSA as I think we would have enjoyed it more. More>
