First time in Jamaica
We went to CSS in Jamaica for the first time on August 1 and stayed until August 7th of this year. We had a wonderful time. This was our first experience with an all inclusive resort and we weren't disappointed one bit. From the minuet the plane landed, we were greeted with friendly smiles and warm welcomes. The ride to the resort from Montego Bay Airport was about 2 hours but the scenery was very nice and the driver gave us lots of information. Upon arrival a CSS, our room was not ready yet, so they sent us down to get lunch and when we were finished our room was ready. The room was awesome. CSS is on a cliff side so the views were spectacular. We had an ocean view and a perfect view of the sunset at night. We had room service for dinner and watched the sunset, they even gave us candles. The staff is amazing and always warm and friendly and helpful. We loved Ricardo, Martin and Delroy at the beach bar. They make you feel like family and would do anything you ask. We are definately looking forward to going back, from now on we are CSS all the way.More
This was the absolute best place EVER!!! My husband and I got married on the beach here and it was a dream come true. The whole experience was greater than I could ever have imagined, from the accommodations to the service.The beauty of the grounds was amazing. You can see the pride that is taken in the care of the grounds and the facilities as well as in the highest level of service in taking care of the guests. I can't wait to go back!More

I have never been to such a beautiful resort. From the cliffs to the beach everything was beautiful!. What was truly amazing was how friendly the staff was and each person truly made us feel welcome. Had a couples massage in the "Hide Away" gazebo - the best massage ever. While there I recommend going to the Blue Hole but try to research drivers/tour groups. It was great that the resort offered free excursions. We look forward to going back. Definitely a place for couples!More

We stayed there for the first time for 4 days this August to celebrate my wife's 50th birthday. It was excellent overall with some minor suggestions or room for improvement. The Couples lounge at Montego Bay Airport has free Red Stripe and beer but no wine, mixed drinks, or any snacks. The trip to the resort takes 1.5-2 hours depending on traffic and when a shuttle bus in available. We stayed in G block which is close to the main check-in and a bit of a walk to the beaches. The room was spotless, only suggestion for improvement is a partition of some sort to separate the toilet from the rest of the bathroom. The shower took a bit of getting used to. It took them 2 days to stock our in-room fridge with wine which was disappointing. The food is superb and so is the service. There is no tipping which is nice. If you want to try the au natural beach, go there early in your stay (as suggested by others) because if you like it, you'll want to go there again. Don't wait until your last day. It is very relaxing, no pressure, has food and a bar, and some great people to talk or play pool volleyball with. I would suggest that they separate the adjacent public beach a bit better as sometimes people would be fishing or going out in boats from the public beach across the au natural one which infringes on the privacy. We went in August which is off season so the resort was nice and quiet. Frequent visitors say it can be packed Nov through May. They put champagne in our room for my wife's birthday which was a charming touch. We had to get room service on our last day as we had an early departure for the airport and it was 20 minutes late. Overall, excellent and we will definitely be back. Thanks.More
Relaxing and would go back again!
We stayed here for a week during our honeymoon. The food was amazing, the service was beyond compare and the grounds/facilities were also wonderful. Great views, the friendliest staff you can imagine and truly great food everywhere-even the bar/grill was great. The spa services are great- we had an amazing couples massage in one of the cliffside cabanas listening to the surf and smelling the salt air which was unbelievable and I had some additional spa services that were very professional and relaxing. Our favorite bar was the Balloon Bar (Yay Ricardo!) and the restaurant that is above it is the one you need reservations for and it's WELL WORTH IT. The food there is of the highest quality although trying to get a nice bottle of wine in the off season (July) was difficult at best. The list they provided us would have 12 bottles listed and they would be out of all but 2 only no one would tell you that until you had attempted to order the third bottle. I finally started asking "what do you have in stock" from the list. All great labels though, just wish they communicated about stock inventory ahead of time. All the food was great on site and we loved the fun bar tenders and quiet atmosphere during the day to lounge and drink poolside or at the beach. Other services: We had a photo session on the grounds for free that was fun and really wonderful. We ended up buying quite a few. It's a nice service/perk. We rented kayaks one day and that was a blast. There was tons of other water sports stuff to do but we didn't take advantage of it and will next time we visit! I also used the gym near the mineral pool almost daily and it's got a great view and air-conditioned which I loved. Free towels and cool water and a full gym of nice newish equipment. Speaking of towels thoughâ¦.when we were at the Jewel Dunn the week before, there was a cart of towels left out that you could take from and return to all day long without any hassle or questions. Going off site? Take a towel? Towel wet or dirty? Take another? Like to have an extra for your head? No problem, mon! We are pretty green consumers and certainly didn't overdo it on the towel usage nor would we ever want to, but the Couples resort lets you have ONE TOWEL for the beach per person and they give them out in your room. There is a sign that says you have to go to a specific site on the campus to switch it out if you want another (it's not an easy task) and if you lose it, you are charged. I thought for such a nice place, this was a very petty way to deal with towels and a huge inconvenience to guests. It's also clearly not an industry standard, so I didn't understand it. The accommodations were a mixed bag but I think that was just our specific area. We were in the A block with a lovely view and easy access to the beach and main pool which we loved. They would have these great evening events a couple nights a week for guests on the main lawn that most of the blocks face on to. We attended the Friday night Gala with entertainment and food and loved it a lot! The entertainment was very fun and the food was spectacular! What we didn't love was that all the "after parties" at night moved to the au natural beach (at 10 pm) and the A block is on the end closest to that beach and still too close to not hear it loudly. One of the nights, we were awake until almost 2 am because of the party music coming from the beach. If I go again I will request to NOT be in the A block. All the rooms have a view, so to be in A block has no real benefits. All in all, we loved it and had a wonderful time. We would certainly go back again and met many many couples who were returning. They even host a "returnees" dinner one night for repeat customers. A great trip!!More
