I would like to start and say the people are the best part and I don’t want to say all of them because I would say 50/50 good versus well let’s say sub par. The food SUCKED beside 1 regular meal at the at the Bella vista and 1 private meal that Patrick cooked we had a second private meal that was well sub par. The entertainment of the bar tenders was good but the service was over all very slow unless it was 11pm and no one was there. The room service was good and the cleaning lady’s and housekeeping was on point very good. The one thing they need to change in there advertising is tips I’m a very generous tipper and the tipping is advertised as being a no no well the people who broke the rules got better service so of course I broke the rules. We did several different excursions dolphin cove was touristy and the staff was rude my wife enjoyed it. We went fish with Shalton wyte or speedy and let me tell you what a rip off we were out for 8+ hours and caught nothing he nor the staff of couples were willing to give us another chance or refund profits the only response I got to a $1300 bill was “that’s why they call it fishing and not catching” SO DO NOT GO FISHING IN Jamaica. We went horse back riding which was great people were great and horses were great.The dive guys were kind of pushy at first until they got to know you Leon was a great dm. I really enjoyed diving. I feel like every corner I turned they were trying to sell me something or up sell a service at the resort. High pressure sales do not get me to buy if I want to do something I’ll pay if I don’t I won’t. So in short food mehh resort mehhh people great Jamaica super badass If you do a private dinner ask for jiggsy for music he is phenomenal. Overall with all circumstances considered I would highly recommend Jamaica but maybe not couples. We may return we may not if we do I will write another review. Read less

Arrived in the evening was greeted with a cold drink and cool flannel. Room was B15 overlooking the beach and main lawn. Room was clean and very spacious bed was so comfy so no complaints. Food was good and plenty of choice especially at breakfast. Bars were all good just give you too much ice in your drink so needed to tell them only a little ice. Pool area good always plenty of sun beds and towels provided. We didn’t do any trips as we just wanted to chill after a hectic few months. We was told trips were included in the holiday and most people seemed to enjoyed. Staff all friendly nothing was too much trouble and always smiling. We tried all restaurants apart from Casanova as this was shirt and pants which my husband doesn’t do. Weather was really hot 31 every day so the pool and sea were both great for cooling off in. The holiday was great and many of the guests who come back year after year. A romantic place for couples. We would return to couples Sans Souci on our next visit to Jamaica. Don’t hesitate to book you won’t be disappointed Read less

Took my Beautiful Lady for her birthday. She was in amazement the entire time. Everything from the room to the food to the special events were beyond our expectations. The entire staff was so very cordial and genuine. She didn't want to leave. The only drawback was the stay was too short. We're planning our next longer stay. L

My husband and I chose to have our wedding planned and executed by Couples sans souci and this was an amazing experience.overall the staff we interacted with were so professional and proactive however Tia Rooney and Lashaun Hoven went beyond the call of duty to ensure that we had our dream wedding. These two wedding coordinators set the customer service bar very high. Lashaun and Tia demonstrated patience and exceptional customer service. The property was beautiful and a very romantic atmosphere exists at this property. We enjoyed the food and all that couples sans souci offered. Awesome job Lashaun and Tia both assets to this hotel looking forward to return. Read less
