Couples Swept Away
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
The intimacy of private villas and the romantic ambiance of a tropical hideaway. Mind and body are soothed by the warm waters and the even warmer welcome you will find here at this Adults only 18+ year resort. Fitness enthusiasts will love the comprehensive sports inclusions from scuba and sailing to spa treatments and yoga, this is an environment that will restore, refresh and invigorate.
Location: On the beach, just 15 minutes from Negril, 60 minutes from the airport.
This resort had everything we could have possibly asked for. Delicious food, good drinks, plenty of activities, fantastic staff, and great rooms. I'm not the type of person who likes to go back to a destination before trying some place new but this is definitely a spot I will return to in the near future. I also highly recommend getting scuba certified while you're there! Was an awesome time!
Booking and transfersOur travel agent Colleen, at Travel Connections in Peru IL, took care of booking the hotel, flights and transfers. She also included Club Mobay at the airport.We went through the airport with and without Club Mobay on separate trips. Club Mobay is nice because a friendly rep escorts you from your plane, through all the steps required at the airport, then to your bus so there is no confusion. Club Mobay is even better on the way back because it includes a buffet, drinks and a spa.The bus ride from the airport to CSA took about 2 hours.The resortCSA is a large resort with a maze like garden between the main lobby and the buildings that have the hotel rooms. The gardens are large and beautiful, but not pristinely tended like some resorts we have been to. The bathrooms are clean, but nothing special. Don't expect marble sinks or rolled up towels.The hotel roomThe building we chose was right on the beach. It had three floors and six individual rooms total. We had the top floor, room 4318, which had a great view. A corner room would have been better because the porch would include a better view. A ground floor room would be a great option because the beach would be right at your front door.Our room was clean and functional, but not fancy. The bathroom features one sink, a rain shower head and a small glass divider so water doesn't splash everywhere. The room has a TV, a king sized bed, a cold fridge stocked with the juices and wine we liked and a desk chair. Out on the porch, there is an outdoor couch and a rocker chair with an end table.Housekeeping did a great job all trip. We always had towels, bars of soap and the floors were always swept. If we were still getting ready when turn down service arrived, she would simply return later after we left.The sports complexCSA has the best sports complex I have ever been to. This complex is across the street from the main resort, which is a small inconvenience. Hotel staff assists when crossing the street because the road has a lot of traffic.There are 4 clay tennis courts and 5 hard courts, all in pristine condition. There is also a lap pool with a hot tub. The weight room in this complex is nicer then the gym I pay for at home. Is has brand new Cybex equipment with tons of treadmills, ellipticals and free weights. There is even squash and racket ball buildings. The outdoor track that is within this complex is long and smooth with exercises on the route like pull ups and sit up stations.The smoothie bar at this part of the resort serves up tasty healthy drinks.The spa is in this section of the resort.Tennis is outstanding at CSA. Brenton, Jermaine and Norson (Ryan fills in on Saturdays) are the resident tennis pros. You can book lessons with them 7 days a week and those lessons are included in the resort price. There is also a traveling tennis pro that CSA invites for a week at a time. This time it was Cole and he was fantastic. I only play tennis a few times a year. After playing tennis four hours a day with Cole and the other guests, I learned to play doubles much more effectively. There was a round robin tournament ever week day night. There was at least 20 players each time!RestaurantsYou need to make reservations for Feathers and Lemongrass. The buffets are very good for breakfast lunch and dinner.My favorite restaurant was Feathers because the staff, including Shawnee, was always very fun. The resort serves very tasty lobster on Saturdays. I was joking when I said I wanted two more lobsters after my meal. To my surprise they were brought to my table! After eating all that lobster, I had to skip desert!The beachSeven Mile Beach may be the best beach on earth. I was in the pool once all vacation. There was never any seaweed problems. The water was always warm and clear. There are salesman walking the beach night and day, but security keeps them from walking up from the shore line.There was never a shortage of towels and the resort didn't mind if we took multiple towels.Shanice was great. She kept us entertained by organizing beach volleyball and other events.Nathaniel organized a fun ping pong tournament and was always fun to talk with.Thanks CSA for a relaxing and fun vacation!
Back again! This time beachfront corner room 3rd floor in the new section. Room was really nice and AC was cool. 3rd floor was nice. No noise from neighbors. We have been in the garden atrium rooms the last three times ('03, '14,'15) but with the renos going on no availability. No matter. Alittle more $$$ but very nice. Never really turned on the TV. We disconnect. We didn't use our phones the entire week. Rarely checked email.Food was great again. Bar service was great. Beach is georgeous. Alittle windy at the beginning but let up towards end of week (Thanksgiving week). All meals were delicious. We did go back to the returnees dinner (peer pressure- Mac/Millioinaire, Jenny, David & Sherry) but it was really nice this time and worth it. In conf room with AC! Buffet rather then sit down went a lot quicker.Drive in was fine. We still prefer Club Mobay. Took a lot of walks both ways on beach.I am pale red head but really didn't get pestered. Just politely say No. Try not to engage the vendors. Elvis, Bob the baker etc... still there. "Ring, Ring, Ring, Jamaica One Love". We still love this place. I am not the kind of person that needs to be waited on hand and foot and expects service immediately. BE PATIENT. You are on vacation. We had plenty of shade last week as it seemed to be a lighter crowd then the past.Fish Tacos still our choice at lunch. Hit the snack bar in afternoon for Chicken (wife) and nachos (me). All our meals were good. Feathers once, Lemongrass three times, Patois once, PALMS buffet once and the Returnees dinner. Ate a lot of Seafood. Just relax and enjoy!P.S. Wil GT2 & Eileen you better come next time!
Swept Away has it all: A beautiful, long white-sand beach, clear, turquoise water, a friendly, attentive staff, good food and entertainment, comfy accommodations and more activities than you can manage in a week. Best of all, it's all inclusive, every private and group lesson, every class, snorkelling and even diving.You can book a tennis pro for a half hour every day, learn to scuba dive, sail a boat. Or you can just laze in the sun. No one bugs you. There are no loud speakers pushing you to do this or that.We have visited many times but haven't returned since a major expansion nearly 10 years ago. The resort has lost a little of its intimacy but its beautiful beach front has grown too. The new Oasis dining room lacks some of the charm of the Palms but they both overlook the beach. The resort is nicely developed with lots of lush greenery. When you are on the water you can just barely see the roof tops of the original units. The newer three-storey units are more visible. We like the old units. No TV but with a big, bright- covered deck and a white, embroidered hammock. Such a treat.There are several restaurants. Lots of fresh fruit, Jamaican specialties, international fare. It's all good.
We stayed over Thanksgiving week at CSA and I was a review troll for a year before scouting the reviews for anything that might make me change my mind. I am glad I didn't. We stayed November 19-26, 2016 and were in room 3312 (ocean verandah room). This was a corner room and we had a perfect view of the ocean with palm trees. The room was clean and how housekeeping kept the sand out I don't know because despite our diligence, we tracked it in. They DO HAVE DIET COKE, all caps because we were "worried" about this and in fact while we were at the airport a fellow traveler purchased multiple bottles because he stated that Jamaica is a "Pepsi" country. While this was true, CSA has Diet Coke (and Pepsi) and will stock your refrigerator with whatever you request. I had requested an upgraded vodka before check-in and by the time we were settled in our room it was there.Pros:1. Great beach- no need to even bring water shoes unless you plan on snorkeling.2. Beach chair service- I am home and miss my red flag to signal that I need another drink. They were perfectly timed (if they would have come more quickly, I would have had pressure to "chug"; a little slower and I would have been out). The drinks are plenty strong enough which isn't always the case.3. Friendly staff- enough said, Tavis (who was new and already a pro), Ricardo, Judy, Kadie, and security Christine McGee were all stellar and made you feel special.4. Clean rooms- our room was serviced in a timely manner and there were plenty of towels.5. No tipping- Really! We locked up our cash (minus a few dollars for musicians on the beach and tips for the catamaran and snorkel crew) and didn't use it again until we left the resort.6. Water sports- go snorkeling if you have a chance and the catamaran trip was a lot of fun (hint- bring your snorkel mask to the catamaran trip because you get to swim in a cave and it would have been great to have been able to see below the water).Cons:1. Food- I knew they were renovating one of the kitchens and that wasn't an issue but we found tracking down when a restaurant was going to be open to be a bit challenging. Pay attention at check-in on this as the book in the room wasn't accurate. Overall the food quality was satisfactory with Lemongrass being our favorite. We went to Feathers and it was good, but unless you need to have a "fancy dress party" type experience while you are here, use the extra space for another swimming suit.2. Vendors- this was a small issue really and I found the "cigaareeeeetttttesss" guy to be the most annoying. The musicians were great to have around and moved to another spot on the beach before they became repetitive. Other advice:1. I packed waaay too much sunscreen. I planned for a bottle per day but for the week we only used 2 bottles so I'd bring 3 the next time I went for a week.2. Only pack one bottle of bug spray. We used it the first day and never needed it again. This might be different a different time of year though.3. Pack something to do when it rains (cards, dice, etc.)4. Don't overpack- I took way too many clothes and only wore 2 sundresses (one for the beach, one for dinners) and that was all that I needed.5. Do bring additional swimming suits. Three (3) per person for a week should be about right.6. I wore socks when we borrowed snorkel fins so I didn't get a blister and they worked wonders.7. You may want to bring snacks. There were times when we weren't really hungry for a meal, but there wasn't anything to snack on so we ended up going out anyway.8. Check the Palms each day for their new flavor of ice cream. Overall it was a great trip and I would recommend (and would return to) Couples Swept Away.
