We couldn't have asked for a better honeymoon. The resort is small which we loved because nothing was ever over crowded, though we did go in the "off season" in July, so I don't think they were fully booked, but we never had a problem getting a seat anywhere or having to wait to do any activities. The staff was SO friendly. We didn't come… Read more
We couldn't have asked for a better honeymoon. The resort is small which we loved because nothing was ever over crowded, though we did go in the "off season" in July, so I don't think they were fully booked, but we never had a problem getting a seat anywhere or having to wait to do any activities. The staff was SO friendly. We didn't come across one person working there that didn't immediately say hello or treated us poorly. The main beach is small but beautiful, lined with palm trees and umbrellas, and the bar is right there no matter where you sit. Tahiti, our housekeeper for the week, was so sweet and courteous and made sure we had everything we needed. The mini bar was stocked daily, and stocked with extra things we requested if you put your door hanger out on time. Room service was prompt and great for a meal in. We also did a private dinner on Sunset beach and it is worth every penny. We had the entire beach to ourselves with a private waitress (Kadene, who was lovely) and a private chef (Jenelle, also lovely). The entire trip was exactly what we wanted: Good food, good drinks, and relaxation. We stayed in the One Bedroom Ocean Suite and it was a great room. The balcony was a wonderful view of the beach and ocean, and the sitting area was a lovely addition to our room. We didn't mind hanging out in our room one bit because it was so nice. The shower was amazingly large with windows overlooking the water. We chose a couples only resort to stay away from the party crowd and have a quiet vacation and that's exactly what we got at Sans Souci. Some advice, bring bug spray, you'll need it at night, and prepare yourself for a 2 hour ride to and from the hotel. It's well worth it though! Read less
