Virgin Holidays View
The award-winning Couples Sans Souci continues to offer renowned cuisine and first-class service in an elegantly tropical setting. Sans Souci is French for 'without a care', and what could be more appropriate for a laid-back holiday in Jamaica, especially in a resort of this quality? Set into a pretty, 35-acre hillside garden that leads to 2 white sand beaches, the resort offers you a blissful retreat.
