We are frequent Jamaica travelers and been to 8 island resorts. (never the same one twice, until now) I would highly recommend San Souci. Great accommodations, private beach, excellent food. Well worth the money. No issues with vendors like in Negril. One Bedroom Beach Front Suite was perfect. Bathroom was a great size and location on the property was excellent. We were in A block on ground level. Mosquitos were are only issue on the trip. Pack repellant. They were bad most mornings and each evening. Preferred the Palazzina restaurant for Breakfast, Bella Vista for Lunch and Casanova for Dinner. A lot of stairs as people have noted, but not much of an issue. Used many of the water sports and have no complaints. (Diving, Hobbie Cat, Water Bikes) Still would prefer breakfast starting before 7:30 am, if I could change anything. Booked to return in February.

We celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary at Couples San Souci. Overall, it was an amazing week, however, I wanted to give kudos and a big shoutout and thanks to Ms. Chedine Kelly ( Team Leader) who organized our Anniversary Dinner @ The Wedding Gazebo, overlooking the ocean. It was a memorable experience that my wife and I will forever cherish! Thank you Chedine for making our Anniversary Dinner a memorable event despite being in a Covid environment. We enjoyed it immensely. Thank You! Wayne & Lorraine K. Fowler

It was a amazing week at Couples San Souci, Ocho Rios. I love the service, the Resort is beautiful, and the staff was amazing. I got to say hands down. to Andre, bartender at the Martini Bar. Andre’s service was outstanding and professional, whilst interacting with guests in a positive manner. I will recommend Couples San Souci to my friends and family! Thank you, Andre for making my 27th Anniversary memorable!

This was our second trip to Jamaica - Couples Negril previously and now CSS. Both are great resorts. Airport/transportation: We were welcomed immediately with a drink and then had a comfortable bus ride of about 90 minutes to CSS resort. Room: We were in D building ocean view. Very nice large clean room with good view. Only problem is there is never hot water available. We called 3 times to increase shower water temperature. We were told the shower system in D building mixed the hot and cold water, so it was impossible to ever have hot water. This is simply unacceptable in a high-end resort. Restaurants: Service and food was excellent, but after a week you get tired of the same food. Bars: Great service and drinks. Only problem is they don't get your order on the beach - you have to walk to the bar. This is probably because of low occupancy. Beaches: There are two beaches. the main beach is not as nice as the Au Natural beach. The main beach is fairly wide but only deep enough for two rows of chairs. The Au Natural beach is absolutely beautiful and just as busy as the main beach - and many people went at sunset when clothing and pictures were allowed. Water sports: Everything is included. Because of choppy waves we could not do as much as we wanted. Grounds: Very nice and cleaned every day. Ask for bread at one of the restaurants and feed the turtles. Spa: We had a couples massage. It was good, not great. Seemed cookie cutter where every person received the exact same massage instead of adjusting it to your individual needs. Security: Excellent. We felt very safe the entire time we were in Jamaica. At CSS it is really locked down. When we were at Couples Negril and wandered off the main beach, we were constantly harassed by locals to buy weed/trinkets/etc. AT CSS this never happened as it is so isolated. Entertainment: This was ok. If it rained the entertainment was cancelled because there is no inside entertainment venue. Limited occupancy - probably about 20% full played a roll in this. Overall: Very nice resort for couples to spend a relaxing and romantic week together.

Relaxing retreat was exactly what we needed for our first trip since the lockdowns and Couples Sans Souci delivered. The resort is beautifully spread over the cliffs of Ocho Rios secluded by a lush canopy of palms and vegetation and embracing two large beaches [one naturalist] and a number of hidden coves and natural pools. The main buildings, pools and restaurants are beautiful although some minor maintenance is needed to the pool tiles and showers. We stayed in a very large, one-bedroom suite in The Evergreen block which was clean, cool and extremely comfortable. However, this room was a little dated and didn’t reflect the marketing for the Sea View Suite. We didn’t request to change our room since we don’t travel to spend our time in a hotel room and the balcony sea-view more than compensated our renovation niggles. Restaurants and bars were exceptional and this really was an a la carte experience . Every meal was delicious and customer service was second-to-none. Armando, Vanya, Nichol and Kadene really went the extra mile to exceed our expectations and Herde at the beach bar never left a glass unfilled. His professionally personal knowledge of each guest was phenomenal and he really made us feel very welcome. We had a great trip and although we are unlikely to be annual ‘repeaters,’ I’m sure we will revisit once we’ve seen a little more of the world. I would strongly recommend Couples Sans Souci.
