The All-Inclusive Experience

Never worrying about where to eat, what to do, or how much you’re spending–that’s why we really love all inclusive vacations. Sometimes quality can suffer at an all inclusive, but we were impressed with how delicious all the meals were during our stay at Couples Swept Away (CSA) in Jamaica. And at the end of our trip, our bill was zero!

Below I’m at dinner at Feathers, the formal restaurant at CSA.

And below is Lemongrass, which serves Thai food. It was probably our favorite restaurant at the resort, and such a lovely setting overlooking the water.

Scott raved about the fish tacos, and I loved the sweet potato chips with hummus dips.PicMonkey CollageThey also served fresh coconut water.

Here’s one of the two bars on the beach.

We were there over the Fourth of July and they had a cute party at the pool, serving hot dogs and burgers and all American food at the buffet.

One of the perks of CSA was the inclusion of water sports and excursions–at no extra cost! We went snorkeling and also went on a sunset catamaran sail. And there were a lot of other inclusions we didn’t do–like kayaking and paddle boarding.  Unfortunately I didn’t take any pics, but they also have an incredible sports facility with a full gym, 10 tennis courts, table tennis, and a lap pool.

On the sunset sail, they made a stop at the caves in Negril, where you could get out and swim.
