Our fourth vacation at San Souci (5th at a Couples resort), and it only keeps getting better. San Souci offers a lush, picturesque setting, a 'European" atmosphere of refined elegance, the best all-inclusive food in the universe (yes, the French management knows from great food), an intimate resort where you can stay private or meet travellers from around the globe. But for us, the staff is leagues above. The training they receive must be incredible, because there is not one person working there in any capacity who doesn't greet you when you pass. Not only are they friendly, but also incredibly helpful...and they will strenously object if you offer to tip.
I've never been to a place that not only gives you unlimited drinks, but actually keeps coming around to ask if you need one.
The management puts an incredible amount of talent and work into every detail--and it shows. This year, they set a theme of Venice Masquerade for New Years. Within a day or two, the resort became transformed...gondolas appeared on the beach, columns with statues sprung up on the main lawn, intricate designs formed gates to welcome you. Entertainment ranged from synchronized swimming to light opera to electrifying reggae and more. Flame-lit balloons soared into the New Year's eve skies. Just incredible.
The staff is eager to make every problem disappear. Flowers on the bed welcome your arrival. Fruit and cheese platters surprise you after a day on the beach. You stock your own mini-bar with a phone call-all included. You can eat in the room all day or visit the many restaurants, each offering a spectacular cuisine...and don't get me started on the desserts!
We cannot wait to go back. We tried other similar places in Jamaica to make sure we weren't missing anything, and spent most of that time saying "nice, but not like San Souci". This is THE place to stay in Jamaica and we hope to do so many times in the near future.
