Will I return absolutely...Our experience from the airport back to the airport. My husband and I thought it would've been nice if tea and coffee were offered while we waited for transportation to the resort. We thought it was a reflection of the resort. The ride to the resort was uncomfortable for 1:30hr because we sat in the very first row behind the driver, not enough leg room for an adult. The driver kept us entertained, which helped the ride.Upon arrival, we were greeted by staff with cool towels and champagne. We're not drinkers but a nice gesture that we've experienced before. Checkin was easy and relaxing. The bellman was nice and ready to take our luggage once our room was ready.The room was outdated and didn't have enough area designated for accommodating a week worth of clothes for 2 adults. I love the complimentary water bottles.The first day we were over the things we thought could have been better. The view of the ocean and horizon from our balcony with french doors was amazing. They offer many free classes on the beach (hat making, wood carving, basket weaving, yoga etc) The sport facility across the street is great. On the beach, you have servers to take your drink orders using a red stick flag you place upright in the sand. They also served complimentary fruit kabobs to you too.My husband and I tried all the restaurants and we took advantage of the catamaran cruise, glass bottom boat, wind sailing and the tour excursion (Zip lining, ATV, mineral bath, nature tour and petting zoo). The tour was one highlight of our trip.The Palms offer buffet style eating which was average. Lemongrass is a Thai restaurant, which was really good. Feathers is a french-european style restaurant with small plates but good. Patois has a fancy variety of food. One night we ordered from Patois to take food to our room but we left to wait in our room to later pick up but the young lady delivered our plates us-great service. Cabana grill is open through out the day and night that serve sandwiches, fries and dessert, which we often visited at night.The veggie bar was our favorite. Everyday we ate beet/chopped salad, sweet potato chips (bean dip/asiago dip), fish tacos and the special juice or smoothie of the day. The Reggae dinner on the beach was awesome with live entertainment. All kinds of island food.I didn't care for the smoke coming from the neighboring guests rooms. I loved to lay in the bed with the balcony doors opened to listen to the ocean waves but often the smoke came with it. Not every Jamaican vacationer smokes.The staff was great and very accommodating and friendly. Jameel, Richard, Shanice or Shanaughty depending on the time of day and the the other entertainment team were great. We met many nice guest that are repeat guest, some who visited, 2, 9, 12 0r 49 times.Checkout was smoove and departing to the airport wasn't the best but a faster ride than arriving.
This was our 2nd visit. We spent christmas and new year 2016 at this resort. Couples did not disappoint us friendly relaxed atmosphere helpful staff. Our days were spent relaxing on the the beautiful clean beach next to the crystal warm waters of the sea. Food was plentifully but not as much choice as i remember last time. We paid the upgrde to the attrium rooms and was dissapointed by the view 3 roofs we asked for a garden view room which was a downgrade but the room and view was a lot better. We saw humming birds every morning while sat on the balcony. If you are on the bottom level watch the cats they are tricky and try and get in your room for the coolness of the air conditioning. .. we never minded i liked to see them. The sellers that walk along the beach are very nice but can be a little pushy you just have to say no firmly but friendly and they leave you alone. If you need anything look out for elvis. Herman sings with his guitar he is 64 white dredlocks and one leg if you see him please get him a cool drink of water he really appreciates it. Big thankyou to kevin who looked out for us anything we needed for our room he was the man to see. There was a really nice guy in the gardens sorry i forgot his name brought us a fresh coconut every day.. colin thank you..we miss you already and will be back when we can. Any smokers reading this when you get to the airport on the way home you can not smoke when you have gone through the departures. They all tell you that you can but trust me you cant. Plus the exit fee has gone up to 30$ each.has to be paid in cash.
Returned last night from a week at CSA Negril, wishing we were still there. This is one place where we could spend ten days easily without being "ready to go home". Each day was more relaxed and enjoyable than the one before.I have to start with the beach, it is perfect. The sand is flawless, and doesn't even get hot to walk on - how? The water is crystal clear, the color you dream of, and calm. The slope of the beach is gradual, so easy to get in and out. And water temp probably about 85 degrees. The shade palms are spaced just right and there are enough lounge chairs with floats and space for everyone, although toward the end of the week we learned to get up early and reserve prime real estate (I don't like the towel-on-chair reservation system, but wouldn't know how to improve it). Everyday was 85ish, and 75 after sunset, absolutely fantastic weather.We play tennis so we took advantage of the courts, clinics, round-robins and lessons daily, which made us feel that we weren't just over-indulging, which we were ( in a lot of ways😎)Our room was an atrium (tv-less) room in the middle of the property, it was comfortable, clean as a whistle, and remarkably private considering how many rooms they have. We were on the ground floor, which I appreciated so we could walk out our back door to the beach in less than a minute. Some ground floor rooms backed right up to walking paths, so the patios had no privacy, but ours was very private.My wife and I love our food, and we were not disappointed. The variety was sufficient, and the quality was much better than you would expect at a resort. The veggies were fresh and crisp, never an iota of wilted lettuce or mushy vegetables. Lobster, steak, jerk chicken, fresh local seafood, custom made pasta (which had a long wait one night due to popularity) and omelettes. Best meal of the week was at Feathers, make sure you go there for a date night. 'Nuff said.Best for last: the staff is great. Every person, and there are a lot of staff, were friendly, efficient, and happy. I was going to mention names of bartenders and wait staff that we particularly liked, but the list is too long. The resort put on a Friday night beach party that was unbelievable, to serve that many people with a beautiful spread, on sand with white linens and live music was quite an accomplishment. I can't finish without being critical about something, hmmm, I got chewy calamari one night.This vacation hit us just right and we will be booking next year real soon.
2nd year in a row we have stayed here. Staff is great and the people you meet are wonderful. We have found that people seem to keep returning once they have stayed here. Special thanks to George and Keshia this year!!
We last stayed at CSA in December 2012 when we actually did not want to leave. This review will not be long.There have been little changes. Some of the rooms have been spruced up with light floor tiles and walls and furniture on the balcony replaced. We stayed in room 1107 a Garden Verandah on the ground floor. All rooms in the building have been improved.We were inititially worried that being on the ground floor might might present a problem with ants, cockroaches etc. During the whole two weeks we never saw a single ant or creepy crawly in the room.The only real negative in staying in a Garden Verandah is that because of the outside tropical vegetation the rooms are a little dark and therefore it is necessary to have a light on. The cost of upgrading rooms is extremely expensive and other than location there is not a great deal of difference between them. Our room was not immediately alongside the main road which can be noisy so we rarely heard any traffic. We are returning next year and have already requested a room in the same buillding.The food is without doubt the best we have experienced in any all inclusive.There is always a good selection in Palms the buffet restaurant with several Jamaican dishes and generally it is kept warm or hot with the odd exception. My main gripe is that there is no provision for sugar free deserts, cakes etc. I am diabetic and I am sure there were several others on site. All other large resorts and hotels we have stayed at do make such provision and I think this is really something that needs to be addressed.Food at the al a carte restaurants is extremely good although portions are quite small. Our least favourite was Lemongrass where we thought some dishes were a bit too spicy. We ate here twice and on the first occasion we were disappointed that both rice dishes we ordered and one of the entrees were served almost cold. We should have complained but didn't but on our second visit the cold food problem was identified. We saw that whilst sitting in the Martini Bar prior to eating, dishes from the kitchen were placed on the counter awaiting service to tables by waiters. Many times we saw that food, presumably hot was left on the counter for up to ten minutes before collection by a waiter, the obvious result that it would have been almost.cold when served.Service in all restaurants was extremely good .As many have already said the beach is amazing. The towel game however is in play. During our second week the occupancy was higher and we found that in order to bag beds and mattress it was necessary in the mornings to reserve them with towels etc. proor to breakfast. If you weren't on the beach by 0930 it was rather difficult to locate any free bed.The red flag system worked well with flags being distributed by the beach bars staff. Stick it up in the sand and generally within 5 to 10 mins your drinks order is taken and delivered. Overall the drinks are good although top shelf brands such as Grey Goose are only available in a couple of upper bars.Overall a superb and restful holiday.. Here you can do as little or as much as you like with all non motorised water amenities free of charge.A good proportion of visititors are repeaters and we heard of an American couple with no less than 51 stays. We spoke to several who were here for their double figure stays. This must speak for itself.The majority of visitors are American and Canadian but us British were quite well represented. We have stayed at some resorts where there have been large numbers of Americans some of whom became extremely loud and a nuisance after consuming too much drink but there was no such problems at CSA.All in all another superb holiday and as already mentioned we have already booked for the same period next year.
