    Romance abounds

    If you are considering visiting Couples Sans Souci, GO! We just returned from a first time visit, and this is now one of our favorite resorts! With a romantic backdrop throughout the entire property, excellent service, food, accommodations, it makes the perfect destination for couples wanting a romantic getaway, or celebrating a birthday or Anniversay, as we were doing. Staff was friendly and your wish is their command. Spa service is out of this world, cannot recommend enough..couples massage in the "tree hut" over the water with sounds of the waves crashing on the rocks...more please!!! (Ask for Thelma, Amelia) Evening entertainment was good, drinks were always quickly replenished and we felt welcomed and appreciated for being there. As a travel agent I have sold this property on repeat, however, this was my first stay, and I cannot say enough!! Property is spotless too-with constant maintenance of the 35 acre property being done at all times.

    Racism and prejudice in 2024

    Written 8:28 pm 5/25/2024. At this present moment I’m still at Hotel as a guest. today I made a reservation for dinner at the Cassanova restaurant on the property for 8 pm. I got there at 7:35 pm and was turned away. The hotel manager on duty told me I was in violation of the dress code. When I made the reservation no one told me about a dress code. At the same time there was a white couple also in violation of the dress code who wasn’t a guess at the hotel and was on a day pass was allowed to dine. The manager on duty (Maurice) told us we can sit outside if we want to dine. It’s currently raining in Ocho Rios. I feel I was discriminated against based on what we were told and the fact that they allowed non-guest to dine. They made a call to the hotel owner Lee Issa in front of me and my wife and he told them to allow the other couple to dine. Btw - I recorded the conversation! I didn’t think I would be discriminated against and treated in such a disrespectful way in my own country.

    Absolutely amazing!

    We’re back almost a week from what was an amazing holiday! I’m an honest reviewer and I cannot fault this hotel, we’ve been to many adults only in the caribbean and this is our absolute favourite ❤️ The minute you arrive you feel welcome and all of the staff want you to have a good time! The lobby staff, entertainment, housekeeping, the restaurant staff all fantastic ! Shout out to McCue and Shanea, what brilliant ambassadors for this hotel, our lovely housekeeper Tahaiti who left our room spotless every day! Loved the entertainment, just a bit disappointing for the entertainment team that people did seem to retire early but we did not! Piano bar was fab, I can’t say enough good things about this hotel! Other comments I’ve read about it being geared for the US I disagree with, we’re British and were treated just the same as any other guest, we will definitely return!

    Sophistication and culinary masterpieces to level up the ultimate experience on uniquely sustainable authentic property

    Wayne Buchanan, Tyrone! Absolutely epic culinary treats. Every meal feels empowering. Every meal delighed. The plates contained more than food. This is passion at its core. Absolutely enjoyed the food and variety of tastes and displays. Yes. The real real Jamaican goat for Gala night curried goat delighted. This speaks columes to the effort and care that goes into sourcing and preparing authentic pieces. And everyone from front desk to grounds keep: Trudy Ann, Mr Dyce and Natassia went above and beyond to welcome us home. A truly amazing place. But more to the people you interact with daily make the property home. Mom was recovering. And we trusted thay we would get top class of everything here. Pool service optimized. For my mom. Thanks again my friends for the Fly Robin hand delivered with such consideration. Captain! Thanks for remembering the right snorkeling spots we like to revisit. And the painting of the three little birds we purchased as the only souvenir that was worth taking back as a physical piece of treasure. Our only treasures were the demonstration of outstanding and quality service. And a beautiful peaceful surroundings. Ample amenities. No need to rush early morning for the reserved coveted spots at the pool. Or beachside. Decent decent people here. Guests who value what you value. And space for diving into your personal space. Excellence. Over and over again.

    23 years later...

    I tend to be brutally honest with my reviews so no resort/hotel is perfect. Sans Souci is no exception. Its been 23 years since we were first here (as a Grand Lido property) and I loved it then and was concerned that I wouldn't love it as much this time. I was wrong. We had a fabulous week. Warning to the mobility challenged... there are a lot of stairs on this property (its built into a hillside for the most part)... if you have a beachfront room its a long hike to the reception/Casanova restaurant. The rooms are ok. Spacious but not overly ostentatious, but I was happy with the space and had no issues. Housekeeping staff were actually amazing. Change of towel twice if not three times a day, mini bar was actually a maxi bar... normal sized bottles of liquor not mini bottles. We were on the beachfront, close to the main pool and pool bar and close to two restaurants that serve breakfast and lunch. The food here was AMAZING, particularly at the Casanova restaurant. Every staff member was helpful I note Ne Ne, Mick Hugh and Nicoy here. They went beyond what was necessary to make you happy. The lobby staff were also wonderful... having this superior level of service really made the vacation. EVERYBODY on the staff went out of their way to enhance your stay. Congratulations to Couples for what was an absolutely memorable vacation we'll be back. The one gripe.. the shower only wanted to deliver lukewarm water.
