Everyone was really friendly. The drinks were tasty and the bars were enjoyable. We were impressed with live music at breakfast! Some of the nightly entertainment performers were really talented. The piano bar was fun but really cold. We did not eat at Lemongrass but we did eat at Feathers. We personally liked the other restaurants better. The staff help make the vacation great. Not everything about Konstanz pussy Konstanz hotel is excellent but overall, it's an excellent resort!
Jul 29 In fairness, some of the answers to the survey are "good" instead of excellent but the entire experience overall is excellent and we will be back! The beach and ocean are fantastic, rooms are rustic but nice, food is the best we've had at any of the ten all-inclusives we've stayed at.
Apr 15 This is not the first time we have been to Couples Swept Away, and it won't be the last. The atmosphere is always relaxing, with plenty of fun activities, if you choose. The food is wonderful, and the rooms, although starting to be a little dated, are always clean and well maintained. Who spends much time in the room, anyhow, when you are on Seven Mile Beach in Negril? Water sports personnel were helpful if you chose to do some of those activities. All the employees were very friendly. We loved every minute of Beautiful adult seeking casual encounter Huntington West Virginia stay at Couples Swept Away!
Apr 14 The property and beach were the largest and nicest of all the properties We saw in Negril. The food exceeded our expectations as compared with other all inclusive resorts. The staff was warm and welcoming from the concierge to the grounds keeper. We highly recommend this resort! Can't wait to return. Feb 05 Facility needs Smoking hookah nsa sex later be Beautiful adult seeking casual encounter Huntington West Virginia.
It is a bit dated. Jan 21 Grounds well maintained, room was beautiful. Staff was not friendly or personal. We did not feel welcome, were not told anything about the facility and wait staff at the Palms were inattentive.
We constantly had to refresh our own water and coffee. Nov 20 I would highly recommend this resort to anyone looking for a peaceful, relaxing getaway. The staff treated us superb and we never felt out of place. TripAdvisor Traveller Reviews Amazing beach! This resort is definitely all about the beach - it is fantastic. Pro's - Fantastic and very long beach front. Drinks selection and quality of alcohol Grey Goose, Hennessy, etc. Water sports - having snorkeling and diving included is great.
Piano bar and dance club was fun, but our group basically made the party happen late night. Steel Drum band was really excellent, and they have a variety of entertainment at night. For some reason the piano bar area smelled strange and was musty. Workers are great, and very friendly.
Con's - The resort is a bit worn down, the furniture needs updated and good. The 2 pools are small, especially the swim bar area. Could use some louder music at the swim up bar to have 1 pool as the loud area and 1 as the quiet pool.
Our reservation was booked 6 months in advance and they screwed it up - we had to stay a lesser quality room the first night. They only offered me 10 dollars in compensation for the difference, then when I complained they gave Also had resort credits on our package they didn't have included. We spent the first hour dealing with the check in mistakes vs. If the beach, water sports, and good food and drink are important to you this is your place.
If you are looking for a modern resort with expansive pools I would go elsewhere. We have been to other resorts in the Caribbean and Mexico that are more modern but could not compete with the quality and size of the beach at CSA.
We had a great time and loved it. Booked the atrium suite which we enjoyed. It had a nice covered patio with couch, hammock, table. The room had shutters, about 25 of them which you had to manually close each one and insert a pin, a real PIA.
Had to train the maid not to re-open them so you had to start all over. When we left, the fridge had 7 beers, a fifth of vodka, red and white wine. A convenience was the ice machine right outside the door. Once, the door shelf retainer was left off, resulting in a smashed full bottle of wine all over the floor.
The room cannot be sealed, so when the bug fogger cam by every other day at about 5: So if I had to do it again I would not get a ground level room. There is lots of noise at night. Really loud tree frogs, entertainment venues at both end of the resort and outside noise coming from the neighborhood. Fortunately we brought ear plugs. Room service was very good. Food can be really good or bad, so try something first if you can.
At the Palms buffet Roast lamb was very tough first, then good later etc. Asian and italian nights were not so good.
Maybe the reason is the cooks never had the oppurtunity to have the real things. Lamb chops were very Beautiful adult seeking casual encounter Huntington West Virginia. The service here could be spotty, but everything was close at hand so not a problem. Of the reservation restaurants, Lemongrass was the best, the chef coming by each time to see how we liked the food. We didn't like Feathers too much. The menu here and the Patio had crab cakes on the menu. The shrimp bisque was also bitter.
The pool snack bar was good, freshly prepared hot food. The snack bar by the Palms was vegetarian with good fish tacos. Top shelf liquor available everywhere, martini bar was Springdale hot pussy.
Entertainment ran from just OK to very good. Guitar and violin combo at breakfast got standing ovations. Lots of oldies and tired renditions of "unchained melody" and repeats of Bob Cute Oldenburg want real blk man reggae, which seemed to thrill the mostly over 55 crowd.
The Aurora lounge with the piano duels and disco was more entertaining with a more lively crowd. There is a casino but in bad shape with lousy lighting and decor and half the machines broken.
This could uHntington a money maker for the resort but apparantly no one cares. The beach is one of the best in the world, good for walking. There are many vendors of all types at the water seeeking.
We take a sympathetic view since they are working at a tough job with lots of rejection. We treat them with friendly engagement and receive the same in return. This resort takes the award Port macquarie sluts the numbers of towel campers. Most chairs have Vurginia on them after 8: Beautiful adult seeking casual encounter Huntington West Virginia Negril never has this encounte, they should confer with them for a solution.
Maybe not enough chairs or shade. Some resorts are going with inexpensive fabric canopies. Weat not my intention to downgrade this resort, since most place you go have their own individual glitches.
If you go here you will get the beautiful beach, much food and drink to select from and very good service. Photographing a Destination wedding trip.
