Couples Sans Souci, Jamaica Reviews

25th Dream Anniversary Trip at Couples Sans Souci Jamaica
I liked not having to wake up early to get a chair on the beach under a tree, or by the pool under an umbrella. You never felt crowded or rushed. As I said above, relaxed, relaxed, relaxed. On the rare day the lounge chairs were all taken, you could just ask one of the staff and they would bring out more for you. :) Also, not having hordes of loud, maniac children running around was wonderful. I was told a horror story of what happened at a nearby large family resort on a rainy day. I liked that each room had its very own extra large umbrella, perfect for two. The bath towels were soft and thick. Calling home was only $1 a minute at CSS! The flight times and durations between changing flights and customes was ideal. There were 16 people in the airport at Charlotte, NC who missed their flight because the connection was too tight. You really know what you're doing and it shows.
Name of couple:  Bud and Sue
Honeymoon date:  2012-04-02
Agency:  Unforgettable Honeymoons
How did the honeymoon turn out in general?  We were celebrating our 25th anniversary, and the trip was exactly what we wanted; romantic, tropical, warm water and beaches, relaxing, relaxing, relaxing and fun. See my email to Laurie Volk.
And about the destination(s) in general?   Everyone was very friendly, welcoming and fun; the hotel staff, shuttle and cab drivers, priest and parish members of Our Lady of Fatima church in Ocho Rios that we attended for Sunday mass (CSS even took care of the cab fare for us to go to mass), and all the other guests. I love the tropical, jungle feeling of CSS, very beautiful. I liked how spread out it was, it made it fun to explore and wander around.
The least?   We didn't get to experience their beautiful outdoor Beach party and farewell Gala because of torrential rain. But as they say, "No problem mon" and they moved everything indoors. Very nice, but no tiki lights or dancing. The closets need to have a light in them, because it's hard to find what you are looking for in the safe. You can smell the water treatment plant from the first set tennis courts, ick.
Highlight of the honeymoon?   Walking into our room and out onto our balcony when we arrived. Gorgeous and perfect! Feeling the warmth of the sun - glorious. Room service dinner for two on our balcony, with the bottle of anniversary champagne from CSS, to celebrate our anniversary. Very romantic. Going to Sunset Beach and seeing the beautiful sunset and listening to the talented saxophone player, as the sun went down. Wow.
Anything that you wish you knew beforehand that you could pass on to us for future clients?  Bring your own conditioner, they do not supply any. I'd bring my own shampoo too, because it took a lot of their shampoo to get my hair clean. If you buy liquor or coffee in the duty-free airport shops, you will have to put it into your checked luggage in order to get it home. You are not allowed to bring it with you in your carry-on bags. All flights are US Air (print boarding passes from USAir's website) even if it says United Airline #xxxx, operated by US Air. An iPad will fit in the room safe. Calling home is only $1 a minute. Lastly, don't buy a magnetic necklace from the beach vendor and put it in the same pocket as your room key. lol
Any other comments?   The Jamaican beaches are as beautiful, warm and inviting as the people. It was an absolutely wonderful vacation.
Was our service what you expected?  Unforgettable Honeymoons took as much of the worry and stress out of planning a trip and traveling out of the country as humanly possible. I would highly recommend you to everyone I know interested in a romantic vacation. Laurie is awesome.
Could we have done more to make your trip smoother?  Your service was above and beyond anything I could have hoped to find in a brick and mortar local travel agency, let alone one I found online. You are the embodiment of the term "excellent customer service" for all other businesses to emulate.
