We've been to all of the Couples resorts. CN has been our favorite and we've been there 6 or 8 times (lost count). This time was maybe enough to show us it's time to find another resort. I remember reading reviews before we went to CN the first time (2007?). Some said it was mostly an older crowd, quiet and relaxing, etc. Over the years it has gradually changed and is IMHO almost unbearable. I complained about the beach vendors in my last review but now they're so much worse. The same guy selling cigarettes must walk by every 15 minutes hawking his stuff. There's several groups of singers (and a few singles) that seem to always be there singing a song, or they just yell "Hello!" or something like that to see if they can get someone interested in hearing them sing. There's also the guy with the megaphone making a LOT of noise but you couldn't understand a word he said. I understand it's a public beach and there's very little CN can do to stop it, but I want peace on my vacation and this is definitely not peaceful. I want to hear the waves lapping at the shore -- not a chance! There's a much younger crowd, so more of a party atmosphere. There are so many people on the beach sometimes you felt as if you were lying elbow-to-elbow.
The room was still nice, clean, comfy bed, etc. But they've instituted some new policies since we were last there. One of the more annoying ones is that they don't automatically refill your mini-bar every day. You have to call them, tell them what you want, and then stay in your room until they deliver so you can sign for it. What's up with that? I want to be out on the beach, not sitting in my room waiting for some diet coke.
We've told ourselves for the last couple of years that next time we're going someplace besides Jamaica but we always miss the place and return to CN. I'm thinking we'll actually go someplace else next time. We'll see...
