Carol & Will --- Returning again!

We have once again stayed at Couples San Souci and today I'm booking our return trip for August 2015 - we got home just last night ! I love to travel and my husband (not so much) -- usually I will only go to one place once -- since my "Bucket List" is to see as much of the world as possible before I'm too old to travel ---that being said --- I've been to Jamaica four times now and have stayed at Couples properties each time - that alone is a 110% testimony to the quality you get with the Couples chain. WHY ? you ask... 1st - the management and staff are efficient, accomadating, friendly, and FUN 2nd - San Souci is - "3 resorts in 1 " - ** "Up top" = the serene Spa area = all our spa treatments were so very relaxing and the staff at the Spa are the best - they do what ever they can for you - a big shout out goes to Thelma & Tessa - ladies you made me feel serene 1 and Mitzi, Jackie and Judith - you Ladies have quote - "created a monster" - you've turned my "manly man" husband into a Spa Man - he loved it all and can't wait to do treatments state-side and when we return to you ladies in August.! 3rd - the main beach area of the resort is - a world unto it's self - with the main pool & beach. It has more water sports/activites than you can fit into your trip - the staff is always so kind , patient and FUN with us as they try to teach us - once again - how to sail the Hobie Cat , knee board , etc. 4th - the nude beach area is set off from the rest of the resort enough that you feel as if it is a resort all it's own - it's beach is lovely -a nice mix of sunny and shady spots - , the beach swimming area is a bit rocky on its bottom but nothing that a pair of water shoes can't handle -- the pool with swim up bar is fabulous as is the Jacuzzi and Grill food is plentiful and delicious - if you've never gone to a nude beach it is nice for first timers the staff is welcoming, attentive and patient with you as you get up nerve to "peel it off." the rooms are all well appointed and if you lack something a phone call fixes it quickly. A big shout out to the management -- all the managers are very approachable - for example my requests for recipes was meet over night and even on a "day off" the management comes through for you - - Pierre (the General Manager of San Souci) made note of my needs even while trying to relax in the sauna on his "Day off>" after a few days spent state side at corporate head quarters -- we were leaving the sauna as Pierre was entering it - he of course stopped to chat with us and asked if we needed anything - I hesitated to say anything since I knew he was on his "day off" but the opportunity presented itself so I dove in --- with my request for a stool to better access the sauna ledges - I'm short - he said he'd take care of it We LOVE this resort and the entire chain so much that and will return yearly for our beach vacation we recommend it 110% -- so much so -- that we will be sending both our daughter's for their respective Honeymoons to a Couples resort !!!!!!!!More

My husband and I stayed here for three weeks in June/July for our wedding and honeymoon, and I can hand on heart say it was the best choice we ever made! The hotel and staff are pure perfection, trust me when you arrive at this resort you feel like you are at home and the staff soon become like family, must shout out to Creshena who made every detail of our wedding day perfect, Akeem & Delroy (Bartenders), Valentine (Waiter), Amalachi (Watersports) and of course the excellent photo team and videographer Barrington! When we arrived we were greeted with champagne and cold flannels, our suitcases were brought to our room for us and instantly we were in holiday mood, it was paradise! Our room was G13, and had lovely views of the sea and mineral pool; there was a huge balcony with table and loungers, a large living area with TV and minibar where champagne and a cheese plate had been left for our arrival, ample wardrobe space with 3 wardrobes and finally a huge bathroom and bedroom with TV. The minibar is refilled every day if you wish just leave your card with your preferences and say what bottles of liqueur you want delivering. Room service is also available when required. Whatever you need the hotel will sort it for you, after all it is Jamaica of course everything is "no problem" : ) CSS is not your average hotel, it is all in separate buildings not one big commercial looking one and to get to each building you have to wander through many tranquil paths passing many beautiful hidden gems, whether it be a waterfall, a hidden hot tub, a carving or the beautiful pond, there is always something beautiful to come across even if it’s just a view point or a hidden hammock to soak it all in. Every day you will also find friendly staff, gardening, doing maintenance etc. The hotel is well kept and one of the most unique I have ever seen, true beauty. There are ample options for food, room service, pallazina, cassanova, beach bar and around at the nudist beach as well as ample bars dotted around for when you want to get into the spirit with a Bob Marley : P The food is always presented lovely and tastes divine. Cassanova is reservations only but is a real treat, and there is nothing better than strolling down to the beach on an evening and getting sat at a table for dinner by the sea with the waves lapping in beside you and the Jamaican mentos band playing in the background. We also had a private dinner during our stay in the wedding gazebo, which we would highly recommend; they can also be done on the beach. Every Tuesday and Friday the restaurants all close as the hotel hosts two spectacular events a beach party and gala evening with optional party’s after on the sunset beach. The effort they put into these can really be seen and they are truly something you don't want to miss with a massive array of food and great entertainment from fire acts to the famous Jamaican steel drum band Silver Birds. Whenever you fancy a snack you can also find an ice cream machine and popcorn machine near the beach which are quite handy, especially when you love ice cream : P The hotel offers a lot of free water sports, scuba diving, water-skiing, windsurfing, kayaks, water bikes etc. So you will never be short of something to do and if water activities isn't your thing they have a wide activity program with cookery classes, hat making etc too. One thing I highly recommend though is to pay for the sunset cruise in their speedboat as it is an unforgettable experience, you get greeted with champagne and a fruit & cheese plate while they take you out in their speedboat past attractions like Margaretville and Dunns River Falls even letting you stop off for a drink if you wish, but mostly letting you sit back and relax watching the sun go down, a definite must! If you do get bored of the resort which trust me isn't possible, but if you fancy a trip out they have some free trips that they provide, one being the famous Dunns River Falls climb, which is well worth experiencing. In addition you can pay for extra trips via your tour guide and just up the road from the hotel is the Mystic Mountain attraction and Dolphin Cove, both of these we did and we would recommend them both. There are also some further away attractions you can do which we did such as the Ricks Café Sunset Cruise, Martha Brae Rafting, Appleton Rum Factory etc but it is personal preference at the end of the day. All I can say is that no matter where you go all the Jamaicans are so friendly and it is a lovely place to visit and interesting place to learn about. The hotel also has an on site spa which offers massages in huts overhanging cliffs so you can see and hear the sea, I would highly recommend one of these during your stay. It also has an on site salon, where my husband had his hair cut and me my nails done as well as my wedding day makeup and hair. They did an amazing job on my wedding day, and it makes a lovely places to nip away to and have a cool down and a manicure... why not your on vacation : D I could talk for days about this resort it is so special...from the little things like beach flag service, so you don't have to move to even get a drink to the on site parrot that even talks to you, and the beautiful wandering peacock. This place will always hold a place in our hearts and I know for a fact it is now going to be very hard to find something that compares. They made our wedding day the most amazing day, it was better than we had even imagined it, they took up minutes of our time to find out our preferences and then arranged everything for us so it was stress free, the tables were set out beautifully with everything I had asked for on them, gazebo decorated beautifully and the cake tasted amazing. We felt so comfortable and happy that we even forgot that we were getting filmed at some points and the photos are very professional and well worth the money. The staff do their upmost not just for weddings but everyday to make you feel "irie", on my wedding day even arranging transport for me to go the distance of a couple of minute walk so I didn't get hot and flustered in the dress. Simply paradise...well worth the money! Every day we wish we were back there and still keep in touch with some of the staff. The only faults I ever see anyone put about this hotel is the rooms being slightly dated, but they are currently upgrading them and even without the upgrades in our opinion it is still perfect, at the end of the day you only sleep in the room, and for the majority of the holiday you are outside taking in the breath-taking views and enjoying the glorious sun. Any doubts about the room décor are insignificant when you experience the service and take in the glorious surroundings.More

Very relaxing and enjoyable

We stayed at Couples San Souci (CSS)for our wedding/honeymoon. We loved the place. It is an older resort with renovation that is ongoing. The property is build on a series of cliffs that decend to reveal two different beaches. We stayed in a suite in the Frigapani building. It is closest to the front desk and our room had two balconies. Our view was nice - overlooking one of the pools, foliage, and ocean. It was up high enough to escape night time bugs outside. The wedding coordinator, staff, waiters, waitresses, spa personel, and drivers were all great. Most all were very friendly and welcoming. The wedding gazebo on the cliff has an amazing view overlooking the ocean. The wedding sight on the main beach leaves a little to be desired and if you plan to use this spot, you will have a beach audience. We chose the cliff side option and loved it. Renae, the wedding coordinator, is very good at her job. We also were very pleased with the photos that the photographer did for our ceremony and reception. We took the complementary trips to Dunn 's River Falls and the shopping trip. Both are very touristy but we had a great time. We also hired a private driver and explored some of the countryside. We went to east to Port Antonio and then headed up into the mountains. The food is pretty good for the most part and it is easy to get spoiled in their room service as well. We look forward to returning in the future.More

Awesome Resort - Got married there on Oct 11, 2014

We had an absolutely fabulous time at CSS from October 8 to 15, 2014. The staff were just awesome - We had Darren and Dario sing to us after we got married and they were fabulous!! Would love to see them perform at the resort! Also a shout out to Roadion, Owene our photographer, Creshna our wedding coordinator and so many more. The staff were just fabulous. The food was great and the location was awesome! Our room was very clean in "A" block right by the pool. Everything was close and the grounds were amazing! We can't say enough about our stay there and will be coming back for our first year anniversary. Would highly recommend this resort :)More

Amazing vacation!

What can I say about this beautiful property? It was everything we wanted in a holiday and more!! Myself, along with my boyfriend and two other couples, spent a week in this paradise back in May 2014. We booked early and took advantage of an early booking bonus which not only upgraded us to a beachfront property but also gave us a $300 resort credit!! I used it at the incredible world class spa. Getting a full body scrub and massage in the outdoor 'hideaway', feet away from the tranquil Carribean ocean was a highlight--all I can say is AMAZING! The remainder of our credit went towards all the Jamaican rum cream and Blue Mountain coffee a girl could ask for at the gift shop. I could go on and on so here are some easy to read bonuses of staying at Couples Sans Souci: * SMALL resort-max occupancy is 300 (150 rooms). It always felt like we had this paradise all to ourselves, not to mention you felt like you had your own personal bartender! This also made beach and pool time A LOT more enjoyable. * The lush and well established grounds- Sans Souci has alot of beautiful folage and is located on a cliffside. There are so many little paths and hideaways to explore, complete with hammocks, natural springs and a stellar view. The pics do not do it justice. We loved walking over (or grab a free bicycle!) to Sunset beach (nude beach) for a once in a lifetime sunset (not a nude beach after 5-6 pm so no worries for those of you who did not come to see a `full-moon`lol) * The water and beach--although small, it was perfect and private! With only max 300 guests, it was def big enough. Also we all loved that the removable mat/pillow on every beach reclinder doubled as a floaty for the ocean and pool! I could float away on mine for hours... * the FOOD! We really enjoyed NOT having to go to a generic buffet every night! At Sans Souci there is no nightly buffett, rather every night you book dinner at one of their restaurants (no reso required). One night a week, they have a buffett set up on the beachfront and close down the restaurants which gives guests the opportunity to mingle and enjoy the beach entertainment (steel drums). The buffets for breakfast and lunch were top notch, never got bored with the food (especially the jerk chicken at the beach restaurant!) and the cocktails were AMAZING and made to perfection! I am very picky when it comes to cocktails and expected to drink beer the whole time until I tasted the pina coladas!! * The staff- So friendly and eager to please :) Everyone from the bartenders, housekeeping, reception, spa staff, and of course the entertainment staff were amazing and hilarious and so professional! Thank you guys for treating us so well and showing us a good time at the sunset beach party! Loved partying with the staff! *The room was nothing spectacular but who spends time there anyway! It was spacious, clean, and our mini bar was stocked daily with whatever requests we made--perfect! Not to mention the free room service we had. I wasnt expecting to enjoy the room service food but alas I was pleasantly surprised (try the wings, so good) * The resort comes with a couple of free excursions which include a trip to Dunns River Falls and a glass bottom boat tour--bonus! * FREE WIFI!! `Nough said! I am NOT one to return to the same place twice but after Sans Souci, I may have to break this rule. We did not want to leave and we certainly cannot wait to come back! Bravo Couples, you are definitely listening to your customers Signed, 6 very happy Canadians :)More
