    Joel and I are just decided to elope and I have been looking at possibilites of places to go for the past 2 days. I even tried to get organized and made an Excel spreadsheet of the different resorts and packages. A little OCD on my part...but it helped.

    I think the Couples resorts are now in the lead. I have been to Sandals MoBay and had a blast...but I like the wedding related stuff at couples just slightly more. So my big question is...Couples Negril or Couples Swept Away? I know CSA is larger and more $$; but other than that what are the differences? Is CSA worth the extra $$?

    I wrote Couples and got 2 basic docs w/ the wedding prices and policies so far. Has anyone here been to CN or CSA?

      I'm a CSA bride but the wedding is still 2 months away. PM me if you have any specific questions and I'll do my best to answer them.

      TA Jennifer has been to both properties and posted a great review:
      She would be the one to ask.

      We ended up choosing CSA because it is newer and we have single guests coming and CSA is the only resort to offer double bed rooms. My understanding is that CN has a bigger pool but CSA has a large sports and fitness complex that a lot of our guests will use. I would also suggest reading the forums on the Couples site Jamaica Resorts: Couples Resorts - All-Inclusive Resorts: Jamaican. They are very active and have a whole wedding section. Many past brides have posted reviews and pictures. A good thing about Couples in general is that they really encourage repeat business, so lots of people on the boards have been to more than one Couples property.

      If you guys want to wait until June we could meet there!

        We just got back from our wedding and honeymoon. We spent 4 nights at CSA and we thought it was really great and would go back!! The beach is large and beautiful white sand. There are two pools, both are quite small, one with a swim up bar. The food is great....the buffets to the gourmet restaurant Feathers. The sports complex across the road is really fantastic. They have a really nice spa, gym, a few tennis courts, squash courts, raquet ball courts, a bar that makes really good smoothies, which of course we didn't discover until our last day there! There is a night club there which had a piano and I think they have duelling piano's every night. We didn't actually go, but it looked cool. We had just spent a week with 47 people so we were only there to relax and quiet time, but we really enjoyed it and would go back. We had a beachfront verandah suite which was really awesome, however the bathroom was quite outdated. All in all I'd recommend it!!!!

          Phew! Good to hear...we chose CSA over CN for our honeymoon Jan 2009. The fact that it is newer and has a fitness facility & sports complex sold us...we are fitness fanatics! hehe

            good stuff.........we are going on a second honeymoon BACK to couples. Our formal honeymoon directly following our wedding was at Couples San Souci, and now, we are planning our 2nd honeymoon for either CN or CSA.......i think that we are leaving towards CSA!! Either way, I am a Couples Fanatic For Life!!!!!!!
