    I will be at CSA in 27 days! I can’t really tell you what I think yet. I do think the flight time is shorter to CSA though? And, I have read reviews about a lot of people vomiting at all inclusives in Punta Cana on tripadvisor. Sooooo, I vote CSA!

    We went to the Excellence resort in Cancun, and it was.. excellent. The staff are SO friendly, always go the extra mile, and the food was delicious. Beach was well maintained, there were many activities… even the entertainment was pretty good.

    @canarydiamond:  You bring up a good point. If you are looking for entertainment I think Couples resorts are said to be lacking in that area. Also, if you want glitz, glam, and marble go with a different resort chain than Couples.

    @Valdrine:  

    I switched from Sandals Whitehouse to CSA after reading reviews on the food and service.

    I stayed at Excellence PC AND Couples Negril (the other Couples resort) and to be honest its a tough choice.  Both were AMAZING!  Couples is smaller, more intimate, and has a better beach than PC. BUT Excellence was also amazing, crazy relazing.  Honestly Id choose either one BUT Couples Swept Away is probably better for a Honeymoon.

    @Valdrine:  I didnt stay at CSA I stayed at Couples Negril BUT the rooms at Couples Negril were beautiful.   Excellence’s beds were a little hard BUT the room was AWESOME (jacuzzi right next to the bed!). 

     

    CN was my first trip out of the country and I really stressed how the room looked.  In the end it didnt matter because we NEVER were in them.  I like the beaches in Negril better so Id go with Jamacia. 

    PS- I keep changing my mind back and forth because both hotels themselves were AMAZING

    My coworker just RAVED about Swept Away to me recently. She’s been 3 – 4 times and says after other vacations, they just ask themselves why they didn’t go back to Swept Away.

    You don’t *have* to tip at Excellence, but it’s hard not to. I feel so bad for the workers who work their butts off and put up with everyone. We tipped everyone pretty much lol. I’d feel bad not tipping!
