Loved the property, people and the service. Food was delicious and I loved the Jamaican food and various options at the restaurants. The grounds were extensive and a great walking trail after dinner. The beach parties on the lawns were overwhelming with the selection of dishes and desserts to tempt the palate. Would gladly return.More
Honeymoon at San Souci
My husband and I stayed at couples San Souci for our honeymoon the first week of June 2016 and until the last day it was absolutely perfect. Despite a few issues we really could not have been happier with our choice. The resort itself is small enough that the the staff are able to learn you r face and name and make a great effort to do so. The property is stunningly gorgeous though to get from one side of the resort i a little bit of a trek. We didn't mind it at all but would just keep this in mind if that may be an issue as there are many flights of stairs. As I said before the staff are incredibly welcoming and accommodating. Even the grounds keepers as how your vacation is going. The food is amazing. Must get the jerk burger from the back grill! one little trick: don't get hungry around 11 am or 5pm thats when most restraints are closed but room service is still available and the food from room service is awesome too (jerk pizza is yum) Also, room service was willing to deliver foods that weren't exactly on the menu but we knew were available at the restraunts. There is plenty to do at the resort. Also a variety of 'Scenes". For example the main beach bar was typically more of a party bar while the balloon bar was a bit quieter so there is something for everyone. Now on the last day we did run into a few mishaps. We booked all of our excursions our first full day of our stay so we would be able to do everything we wanted. One of which was a three in one package including a tour of Appleton Estate, a float down the black river and swimming in YS falls. If you've seen the bachelor this is where Ben took Jojo so I was pretty excited to see it. We booked it for the last full day of our trip-a monday as the tour rep told us that it would be crowded on the weekend and monday would be better. Sunday night just 14 hours before we were supposed to take our excursion we go a call from the tour guide desk informing us that the full as well as lunch and the river were all closed on mondays and that they shouldn't have booked us on that day. Since it was the last full day of our trip we were unable to reschedule and were given a full refund instead. It was frustrating that the mistake wasn't caught sooner but now we have something to look forward to next time we visit! the only other slight inconvenience is the night time entertainment. The quality of the performers is excellent, however there isn't much of a choice in participation as the entertainment is so loud there doesn't seem to be a room on the property that is quiet every single night (they alternate entertainment locations) Overall it was a great experience and my husband and I are already planning our return!More
Visited for 3 nights and we loved the property. It is huge with lots of secluded spots. There are a lot of stairs though. Food was always available in abundance...tasted OK. The best meal I had was at Casanova that you are required to make reservations for. A big thanks to the staff there who sang Happy Birthday to my partner, they really helped to make his day special.
The watersports Dept was also very helpful and did their best to ensure we enjoyed all the activities we took part in.
Check in and out was made easy by the front office staff. They were very friendly as well as Alecia? at guest services.
An observation with the entertainment coordinators, they seem to enjoy playing amongst themselves rather than with the guests.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends!More
3rd time back to Couples Sans Souci
Couples Sans Souci May 2016
This was our third time back to Couples Sans Souci. Each time we are there we fall in love with it all over again. The people, the food, the service, itâs always top notch!
I really can say enough about the staff, all the staff was very pleasant and polite. Couples is developing an app so upon arrival my romance rewards could not be found, but after talking to guest services it was all resolved and all my treats were given to me. As always I pretty much used up all my resort credits on the pictures. Although I did use some at the salon, Tessa at the salon is wonderful, so professional and even though it was just a nail polish change she took her time and did everything well. Marco took us sailing and was also on the snorkeling trip and he was great. Looked out for us to make sure we were safe and also showed us where to look for fish etc.
We decided to stay at a beach front suite since they were recently remodeled. Actually we have only stayed in the beach front suites all times we have been there so we were eager to see the difference. We were given suite A14. The room was nice, the bathroom is huge, and I think they could have actually fit a Jacuzzi with so much space, but oh well too late now. The bedroom is no longer closed off so the noise from outside is much more audible. This is where it gets a little bad. As you may have already learned there is a bar that has opened up at the end part of the resort, all the way to the left as one is facing the beach. Itâs relatively small but at night it is quite noisy. Unfortunately the room that was given to us (A14) was very close to this bar. It was so loud I was not able to sleep the first night. Sure enough we were at the front desk the next morning complaining. Couples of course understood and we were moved to the B block top floor, we had no problems there. At the cocktail reception the GM mentioned that the resort was aware of the problem and that it would shortly be resolved. So hopefully this will not be an issue much longer. In the meantime if you are going anytime soon and are staying in the beach front suites be weary of the A block.
One other thing that is really nitpicking because we really donât watch much T.V. period let alone on vacation, but I think itâs worth mentioning especially if Couples SS is reading this (hint hint). They have really nice, big, new T.V.s in the beach front suites but the picture quality is awful (at least it was awful in the two beach front suites we were in)! My husband the IT head quickly took a look at the back of the T.V. and noticed they used the wrong wire (short version I have no clue what he was talking about). He said it was a simple fix and mentioned as much to the GM. Hope CSS listens, no sense in having such nice T.V.s if the picture quality stinks!
Being a couples repeater I am used to the entertainment they provide, this year it was slightly different, they had a new female singer for reggae night, she (canât remember her name) sang really really well, some off her dance moves though were a bit tasteless but other than that I enjoyed her singing very much. They also had âcircus nightâ which was new and a lot of fun, for some reason the guest turnout was not the best but it could have just been the crowd there during this time. Funny enough we ended our vacation with 4 nights at the Secrets St.James and the same night we arrived they had the same circus!!! The act was slightly different (much better at Sans Souci) but same troop, quite the coincidence.
All in all I love couples resorts, I always enjoy my time there and we are always treated with kindness and respect.More
Return Trip For All Of Us
Couples San Souci is one of the nicest, friendliest resorts I've ever visited. We traveled there with two other couples, a return trip for all of us. Since we were there in 2013 they have renovated the rooms and it is very nice now. They weren't bad then just a bit dated.
We still aren't real happy about the cats lounging around the outside eating areas but I don't look for that to change.
The grounds, beaches, and staff are all excellent. Well, I would prefer more soft sand on the regular beach like that is on the sunset beach (au naturel) but we really didn't spend much time actually in the sand anyway.
So we've been there twice now and will definitely return again.More
