Ocho Rios vs. Negril

This was our third time to a Couples resort, the first two to Couples Swept Away (CSA). First, we thoroughly enjoyed our trip. What's not to love; sun, sea and beach. That said, Couples Sans Souci (CSS) is a different experience than CSA. It is an older resort that has been kept up pretty well. One notices things like a cracked tile or two in the room, a cabinet door (non-used) is painted shut, older TVs, etc. None of these really matter, and they don't detract from the experience; I'm not there to spend time in my room. CSS also has a more compact layout than CSA, and fewer dining options. Most notably, fewer options in the breakfast/lunch buffets, although we never lacked choices. This was less of an issue than we thought it might be. The one thing we would have liked was nachos during the day at the beach restaurant; room service only!?!? The beach party dinner on Friday night was great; so much food!!! We definitely preferred the beach at CSA; no seaweed, deeper water, a miles long beach, and easier Hobie sailing. Even with a moderate breeze (15 mph), the seas at CSS could build to 2-3 ft by midday, which requires some expertise. Set in a cove, the beach at CSS has NO "peddlers" or jet skis offshore. These peddlers are not allowed away from the waterline at CSA, so this was also never an issue there. Service at both resorts is exceptional, although we felt that at CSS they went that extra mile to ensure that we never lacked for anything. The one exception--and this is true at BOTH resorts--is the water sports guys. Unless you are going on one of the scheduled outings (scuba, snorkeling, glass-bottom boat), getting them to do anything seemed like a great inconvenience; everything moved slowly, come back later, or generally not helpful. We didn't experience this from ANYONE else, EVER. Finally, we found that the guests at CSS are really committed to that resort, and go back there exclusively, again and again.

Great Getaway!

We spent 5 days/4 nights at Couples San Souci and really enjoyed it. We stayed in the A block on the 2nd floor and had a lovely view and short walk to the beach and pool. Because we stayed there in the off season, the resort was only about 60% full and very relaxed and quiet, which we enjoyed. Our room seemed to be freshly renovated, and was very nice - beautiful bathroom with large shower and plenty of sink space. As far as activities, we played golf the first day which was fantastic. Nice course, fairly well maintained, and only $20 for the caddies (plus tip). The caddies did a fantastic job and we had a great time. Course is only about 10 minutes from the resort. We also snorkled, which was nice, there wasn't a ton of fish but lots of variety and a large reef. Equipment was great and in good condition. The other activity we did was the Dunns River Falls tour - this we didn't enjoy as much but mostly because it's such a tourist trap and was so busy. The falls are beautiful but there were just too many people around. If you decide to go, make sure you bring water shoes, they're pretty strict about that. For entertainment, we were there for the Friday night gala which was fantastic. Delicious buffet on the main lawn with a huge variety of foods, and the singing group was amazing. We were really blown away by the talent of the performers our whole trip. We also had an evening performance by an amazing saxophone player, a singer (Coco Puff), and an acrobatic group. All sensational. The food was also very good. The beach grill was good for beachside fare, highly recommend the jerk chicken, it was the best thing on the menu. The Pallazino restaurant was also very good, we ate there every other night as we weren't aware that pants and shoes would be required for the other restaurant (Casablanca). This was the only disappointing thing - would be better if this was more clearly stated on the website so we could have prepared. The staff at San Souci was really excellent as well - Vanya at Pallazino, Maurice and Devon at the beach bar, Quessian at the pool bar, and, our favorite, Hakeem at the beach bar and Pallazino. They all went above and beyond to ensure we were always having a good time and our drinks were full! Overall, a great trip.

Great Getaway!

What a great trip!

Everything about the location was amazing! The food, the events, the options, but most of all the people! They were so caring, loving, and helpful. You could tell they loved their jobs. They made every second incredibly amazing and feel like home. SanSouci had so many things for us to do that we were never bored for a week straight. Lots of sun was readily available. It never felt crowded. If you got too tired to walk, they happily gave a ride to wherever you need. CheapCaribbean made a great all inclusive set up so that our flight, car ride, and vacation were all around amazing!

What a great trip! What a great trip!

What's to Love

It's an all-inclusive slice of heaven on a lush cliff overlooking the turquoise sea.

Chillaxing in the mineral grottos and pools. These little hamlets are delicious.

The little huts where you can get couples massages.

All the nooks and crannies where you can enjoy a tete a tete & hideaway from the world.

 

What We'd Change

Though the property isn't brand new, the upkeep and cleanliness sure make it look that way. Lush grounds and spotless suites really impress us!

 

Why You Should Go

It's 68 minutes from the airport. It takes a while, but the scenery on the drive is off-the-charts gorgeous.

There's an au natural beach (read: totally nekked) and you can go topless on the other beach.

The Dunn's River Falls excursion is free when you book in. Sweet.

Don't miss the glass-bottom boat ride or horseback riding on the beach. Magical stuff.
