We had so enjoyed our first trip to CSA that we invited friends and family to join us for our second trip. We all traveled in mid January 2017 and had another outstanding trip. The 4 that traveled with felt that we had built it up so much that they were sure it could not be as good as we said. BUT, they were wrong, they felt it was even better than we said. We have traveled to many AI Resorts in Mexico, Jamaica, St. Lucia, St. Martin (both Dutch and French sides), etc... And if your wanting/expecting marble bathrooms, jacuzzi tubs and personal pools on your balcony, then CSA is not for you. But if you are wanting the perfect beach, awesome food, great drinks, great service, and a clean room with a comfortable bed, then CSA is the place your looking for!I just do not understand the negative reviews about CSA? Yes, it is an older property, but all is clean and the Issa family has a lot to be proud of with this property. I have been to other properties that maybe had fancier rooms and bigger pools, BUT none of them had what CSA has, the perfect location and perfect beach!We just booked our 3rd trip and are looking forward to it already. If you are on the fence about this property please get off the fence on the correct side and book CSA. You will be glad you did!
We stayed at CSA for five nights in January and this was our third trip to this property.In our opinions, the best thing about CSA is the location on the 7 mile beach. This is the main reason we return. If lounging on the beach is a top priority for choosing where you are going to spend your vacation then this is the place for you! Here are some cons: the beds are hard as rocks. We asked them to put a mattress topper on our bed which helped tremendously. Also, the rooms are getting a little too 'rustic' looking and need a facelift.The water runs out of the shower into the bathroom which is very dangerous. Our solution was to put towels on the bathroom floor so we wouldn't slip or fall.We used to love the fish tacos at Sea Grapes but were disappointed with them this trip. They were dry and flavourless.New staff was being trained at dinner one evening at the Palms. Our server didn't know what he was doing and there wasn't anyone around to help him. The service was painfully slow and he got our orders wrong. We felt sorry for him. There should have been a trainer or supervisor present to oversee the new staff.Overall our trip was just okay this time. We are going to try another AI in Negril in 2018.
This was the best holiday ever food sooo good drinks even better everything about this hotel exlent right on beach drinks brought to you on beach so laid back everyone so friendly and helpful you just got to try this place once you won't be disappointed, rooms. Big veranda very big with exlent seating you can get brackfast brought to you on veranda just sitting watching world go by you won't want to go home but all good things must come to a end 😎😢
We have just returned after spending an amazing two weeks here for our 35th Wedding Anniversary (March 2nd to 16th),We stayed in a Garden Verandah Room,which was lovely,couldnt fault it,massive bed,brilliant bathroom,lovely verandah and just few minutes walk to the Beach.We were in block 10 which was the Great House End and i must admit am glad we were this end.BEACHThe Hotel is situated in the middle of the most beautiful beach,Seven Mile Beach. Facing the Ocean ,if you go right along the beach you go along past all the big Hotels,Sandals,Beaches,Hedonism etc and if you go left you go along past all the Beach Bars so this hotel really is in a fantastic position.The sand is like white powder,the sea is amazing and such a lovely temperature to go in, and no horrible stones/rocks to watch out for. I was worried about sand fleas before going,but in the whole of 2 weeks only got a few bites. Someone said they are worse when rains and at night and under the trees.All the sunbeds have floater cushions on them to take into the water which is good. We used to get up at 8 and get our sunbeds before going to breakfast and never had a problem getting them. What was annoying was seeing people reserve them in 2 places,by the sea and under the trees, the hotel should try to stop this as its not fair to then watch people not being able to find any!I think there is a wonderul atmosphere on the beach with all the reggae singers who go along singing, there are also the sellers who go along too,ring ring man,,aloe vera man,lobster man,coconut man,wood handywork man, trisha with the pink shoes selling her bracelets,Elvis and Bob the Baker..the brownie man and all the drug men etc etc. They have to walk on the waters edge and not allowed to come up the beach ,so if you are not interested a polite no thankyou and they go on their way!We used to take some of them,mainly the singers, cans of beer to drink out of our fridge,they were always so grateful.There are beach bars dotted along the beach,who also do red flag service,where you put your flag up when you want a drink, but where we sat near the Bamboo Beach Bar it took them absolutely ages some days to come to us, we tried to use it as someone said if you dont you will do someone out of a job,but alot of the time it was just easier to go and get for yourself,although think service was better someone said at the sunset beach bar.Sunset on the beach is absolutely spectacular so dont miss it,singers used to come along then too. And also on a sunday at 5.30 they had jazz on the beach while the sun went down.TRIPSThere are alot of things included in the hotel,lots of water sports.... kayaking, scuberdiving, wake boarding, knee boarding ,Pedal boat, Hobie sail,Windsurfing, Skiiing,Sun Fish.Also Shopping Tours,Trips to Golf,Trip to Margaritaville, Trip to Pushcart, Catamaran Cruise and Glass Bottom Boat.We did both the sunset catamaran cruise,which is great fun,sails along to Ricks Cafe, then you can swim in the water into the caves and then party back to the resort,all drink included. We also went on the Glass Bottom Boat which was good too and sails along the coast the other way. We also went on a trip to Martha Rae River,which was half a day and you went on a bamboo raft along the river which was goodAlso did the long day tour to Dunns River Falls and then up into the mountains to Nine Mile,to see where Bob Marley lived and is now buried, was well worth it but a long day,but so glad we went.EVENING ENTERTAINMENTLoved the entertainment here,every night was a different band in the Palms restaurant,where everyone would get up and dance,great atmosphere really was and where we preferred to go either after a meal elsewhere on the resort or to also eat there.There was also the Aura Lounge which had the piano bar ,with Ultimate Chocolate singing on the piano till 11 and then the Disco.A couple of nights they had the Reggae Night Beach Party on the beach(Friday)with food and entertainment and on a wednesday night at 10.30 they had a Romantic Bonfire on the beach,where you all sat on sunbeds under duvets listening to a singer around a big bonfire,we loved it.If you wanted just to have a quiet drink you could go to the Martini Bar or the bar at Patois overlooking the Pool at Great House end or have a drink out by the pool by Palms. There really was something here for everyone!RESTAURANTSFor breakfast there was either Patois,by Great house end where you ordered from a menu and was lovely but was sooooo slow ,everyone was saying that when we were there,god knows what took them so long as was never really busy,but we did like going there.You could also go to Palms the other end of the resort which was a buffet,and was nice too.For Lunch,you could choose from Palms,which was a buffet,seagrapes on the beach there.Or at other end you could eat a 3 course meal where you choose from the menu in Patois which was really nice or eat at the Cabana Grill by the beach,which served the jerk Chicken and Jamaican Pattys etc.The food was really nice at the Cabana Grill but you could wait along time for it,this is the main area where needs major improvement and lets the hotel down. Tables were always dirty and you felt guilty sometimes asking them to clean them,staff were grumpy. One day food had been spilt on the floor and was getting trod on and was a slipping hazard.....3 times i went to the girl and told her,each time she gave me a look and said ok,i even told her someone had skidded on it and it was dangerous and they could end up getting sued but still hour and 15 minutes later it was still there!! It is a shame because i cant fault any other part of the hotel,this part really let it down,and yet i did like the food here,but this area could definately need some smartening up and staff retraining!!For the evening, you could go to the Palms at one end of the resort or Lemongrass(Asian food,which had to be booked0 which was above Palms and you could still see and hear the shows depending on where you were sitting. Both of these were amazing.Or you could go the other end of the resort to either Patois,which was still a la carte but you didnt have to book or Feathers which had to be booked. Both of these were amazing too.We really could not fault any of the evening meals or staff they were all fab !POOLSThere were 2 pools here,one each end of the resort, a quieter one by Palms which we really liked and the other end was a swim up pool bar pool,which was small and which could get really loud of an afternoon depending who was holidaying there at the time. But we used to like visiting both.The water was a lovely temperature to get in in both pools.There was also a lap pool on the complex across the road that was also part of the Hotel,where there were also tennis courts , Basketball courts,Squash Courts,Gym and Aerobics Centre,and the Spa. It was nice to have a wander over there on a cloudy afternoon and have a healthy smoothie at their bar.All in all,we really had a lovely holiday here and one day i would love to go back. I liked the fact there wasnt any preferred club where people sat on a different part of the beach or eat in different restaurants etc etc,everyone was equal here,all treated the same. The only difference was what room you were in and most of them looked the same inside ,it was just the dearer ones were nearer the beach front.There was also a no tipping rule here,so no one looked for tips, although at the end of our holiday i did give tips to those who had given such good service,as they gave it without expecting anything!As i said in the title there were a few things that they could improve on and that is the red flag service on the beach and the other thing is the Cabana Grill,smarten up the whole thing and retrain the staff to be like the rest of the others in the other restaurants .Also the Swim up pool bar could do with smartening up. The staff at the Reception arnt very friendly or knowledgeable either which surprised me, the Thomsons Rep left something there for us,and the reception staff insisted wasnt there,although never looked! we told the thomsons rep and she went straight in the drawer and found it,she did have words with them as ,as she said they make her look bad! Others also commented on how bad the reception staff were,as you would think that being front of house they should be the best!In other reviews i have read these criticisms too and the reply was always,it would be reported back to the team and improved but obviously never was as still the same,lets hope the manager does it this time as these little things let the place down. But having said all that we absolutely loved it here and would love to return one day.
Stayed 3/17/17-3/23/17. This was our second trip to CSA and 3rd stay with Couples. We love the beach and Jamaican people. While I agree with some of the other reviews about updating, everything was clean. This is truly an "All Inclusive" resort. Drinks and food were great!!Enjoyed many of the activities including sunset cruise, snorkeling, glass bottom boat ride, and my favorite..... scuba diving.We found the staff to be extremely friendly and attentive. In fact, I feel that is the staff that make this resort stand out from others.
