“Absolutely the perfect care-free getaway!”
The resort had everything we could have hoped for. Great food, fantastic service, tons of choices for entertainment, space to relax, free outings to local attractions. The service was incredible and we felt that every staff member went out of their way to ensure that we had the best experience possible. They had lots of choices for places to eat on the resort and each one seemed better than the last. There were plenty of options for fun on and off the resort. I'd particularly recommend the included scuba trips. Other local attractions included The Blue Hole waterfall (probably the best trip we made, though it's separate and not included in the resort package), Dolphin cove (grab the discount from the airport booth on your way in!) and Dunn's River Falls. I'd highly recommend this resort to any of my friends and would consider returning for sure. Some reviews mention the stairs, and they may be a factor for some, but neither of us found them to be a nuisance at all. Overall 10/10 in my opinion.
The strong points Peace and quiet when you wanted it, but lot's of fun available. Service was 10/10. I can't say enough about how great our trip was. The weak points None come to mind. Stairs I suppose if you're less mobile.

“Sans Souci, Jamaica”
The best vacation we've had yet. Even though the resort wasn't new, it was very clean and well run. The staff were super-so so friendly.
The strong points The strength of this hotel is it's staff. Super friendly and couldn't do enough for you. When there was a problem it was fixed very promptly. The weak points The only complaint we would have is all the stairs to climb. But that is also part of the hotel's charm.

“Another Great Experience”
This was our 8th. visit to Sans Souci and we very much enjoyed our two weeks. This influenced us in marking the survey "as expected" where first time visitors may have rated the same item as "beyond expectations". The continuity of staff really adds to the experience. We have noticed a steady improvement every year in the level of service and especially the staff's responsiveness in handling questions/concerns.
The strong points Great staff who remember you from previous trips and do their best to make your stay enjoyable. Prompt followup on any questions/concerns. Better weather than last couple years helped. The weak points The anniversary gala was spectacular but the buffet set-up and line-up system was somewhat frustrating.

“The first of hopefully a lot more stays!”
Where should I start? It was wonderful, the room was big and airy, with view of the ocean, amazing staff, amazing food and beautifully taken care for grounds! This relatively small resort was just intimate and great, the fellow guests were a lot fun to be with and enough to do around for that first week of ours! We are aiming ob going back there, that's for sure!
The strong points Staff, food, grounds, nature, au naturel beach - we loved it all! The weak points Tell the folks to bring water shoes... Hubbie stepped on a sea urchin, that hurts...

“Couples San Souci: Romantic & Relaxing!”
We booked the one bedroom beachfront suite. We were very happy with our "Begonia" (B block) room. The King size bed, large bathroom with Jacuzzi tub and walk-in shower were all so wonderful. The bedroom could be closed off with folding doors. Our room was close to the beach with the watersport activities. It was close to the small lake featuring turtles, water birds, pelicans and tiny fish. In addition the lake was encircled with a walk/run/bicycle trail. The Au Naturel beach is nearby the lake. From our room, the buffet restaurant was only a 1 min. walk and the Beach Grill was perhaps a 2 minute walk. The one-to-one staff to guest ratio means your every wish was anticipated or taken care of promptly and graciously. Beautifully kept tropical garden style grounds are spread out over a larger area than normal for a resort on this island. We were constantly finding secluded pools, Jacuzzi's or hammocks on our walk and stair climbing treks. Tipping is include in the room price. This was very nice, in that the staff treated EVERY guest as special, and we found all staff to be so friendly and gracious - no one vying for a better tip. Dining options vary from the casual Beach Grill to the Elegant dining in the Casanova restaurant. Wednesday is lobster night - it was delicious! The buffet for breakfast or lunch always had such fresh foods - especially the salad greens. With only 150 rooms - even though the hotel was fully booked when we were there in January, it never seemed crowded. There were no line-ups for food. There were several free excursions offered, but I only partook in the PADI certified free scuba dive. Otherwise, the week was spent in the romance of the resort's atmosphere, enjoying our surroundings and each other's company for the most romantic, elegant and restful vacation we have ever had! We will be back next year!
The strong points 1. The one to one staff to guest ratio. 2. Beautifully kept tropical gardens. 3. Tipping is included in the hotel price. 5. Strong daytime activity program & evening special events. 6. Evening meal choices range from casual to elegant The weak points !. The resort is built on a hillside so there many staircases to manoeuvre, which some people find difficult, however we actually liked the fitness opportunity that the steps provided us with! 2. The Gift Shop is right at the resort's gateway.

“Couples Is For Couples”
The property is unlike most resorts in that the layout and fauna create a botanical gardens environment. Unfortunately, however, it looks like the cost to support the grounds has caused management to neglect the rooms. Our room had numerous broken tiles, walls in need of repair and paint, rotting wooden railings etc. In sum - rooms quality is not 5 star quality (closer to 3. What makes it a great resort - the staff. They are amazing. Never have we been treated so well by the staff. They made the difference.
The strong points Friendly, courteous and helpful staff. Special mention: Gracey Ann, Dean, Radcliff (tenniss pro, Albert & Keston. The tennis courts are in perfect condition and the free lessons are beyond expectation. As previously mentioned the grounds are amazing. The weak points Condition of the rooms. It's hard to believe management has let the rooms slip so far under current 5 star standards.
Overall Happy Guest Newmarket, ON from 2014-01-03 to 2014-01-10 (7 days)
A quiet getaway for any couple. We enjoyed every aspect of this hotel except the bathroom in our penthouse suite. No bath tub which was available in a smaller penthouse suite which we originally assigned to. The nude beach was a good option and our first experience. We went everyday for a few hours and it was refreshing to be with so many easy going people. The food was first rate and golfing and scuba included were also an added bonus. We would go back again and spend more time at this resort.
The strong points Smaller more relaxing resort. The weak points Having a Jacuzzi tub in the penthouse suite would have been nice.

“Fabulous Resort Destination”
The resort, the grounds, the spa, the service, the people, the food - all were absolutely fabulous. We would highly recommend Couples Sans Souci to any couple looking for a relaxing first class getaway!
The strong points size of resort, location, grounds, staff, inclusive of tours The weak points 1 week may not be long enough
