Enjoyable two night stay. Nice all inclusive resort for those who are not necessarily part of the all inclusive craze. Quiet and the staff is attentive. The property is slated for renovation in May 2020 and you so sense the need for it as some fixtures and infrastructure does need to change. Recommended.

We returned to Couples San Souci over the Labor Day weekend. We had so much fun in April we just had to be sure! Note - in 35 years of travel we have never repeated a trip to the same place...the streak has been broken. The proof is on the rock. Well, we were surely not disappointed.

We returned to Couples San Souci over the Labor Day weekend. We had so much fun in April we just had to be sure! Note - in 35 years of travel we have never repeated a trip to the same place...the streak has been broken. The proof is on the rock. Well, we were surely not disappointed. Great staff, great amenities and nearly perfect weather. Food was top notch as was the entertainment and “adult beverages”. Guess what...we will go again. Again we met amazing guests, and again of the visitors, more than 50% were repeats...like us. That says a lot in itself. The clientele spanned all ages with the median being about 40 yrs. there are activities for all, sun bathing to scuba diving. Water skiing to glass bottom boat rides. Sailing to fishing. The au naturale beach (aka sunset beach) is beautiful with swim up pool bar and lunch prepared right there. If you have never.....you should (at least try). The main beach swim area is a little smaller than sunset beach but also has pool and great food. Then after all that food, there is a very well equipped gym for workouts including a trainer to make sure you get the most out of your exercise time. As for the staff, I cannot say enough positive things about them. From grounds keepers to senior management the team here is top notch and know how to provide the best resort experience possible. A special shout out to the Spa staff (especially Ruth and Jackie) and to our friends Giovani and our favorite bartender Kayon. you help make our vacation time the best! The first thing you hear when you arrive is “welcome home”. Coming back, it was music to our ears. It will be again! It’s important to note that next year CSS will be going through a major renovation beginning in late Spring 2020. Read less

We always spend 10 days and lately it doesn;t seem long enough to fully savor all the beauty and services of this unique place. Casanove, Palazzina and Belle Vista satisfy our bellies and the water sports and excursions take care of our adventurous side. The rooms are comfortable and the galas and themed nights enable the chefs to be extravagant in their dining creations. Read less
