My husband and I went to CTI with another couple for a great getaway vacation. We loved it and would go back. We didn't know what to expect, but the resort came highly recommended by another couple that had stayed there. From the moment we stepped off the bus, the staff was helpful and all smiles. The room was simple, but we really didn't spend all that much time in it. It had everything we needed. The restaurants had great food. We ate at the Pool Grill everyday for lunch. We loved the nachos and ice cream. It was easy and convenient. The buffets were also great. We are usually picky eaters, but were able to find something that we both liked and never went away hungry. The pools were a little cold, but they were great for cooling off from the hot sun. The beach was clean and the sea was beautiful.!!!! My advice to anyone that goes in the future..wake up early to put some towels or magazines down on the beach chairs that you want for the day, because the good ones go fast!!!! Drinks were bottomless and the Martini bar that they put on was amazing. Take time to do the included Dunn's River falls and catamaran cruise. The snorkeling was great too. For an all-inclusive resort, they really do include a lot of stuff and always have an agenda for the day so guests can plan their stay out. Some people may get leary about the "au natural" beach. It is far away enough from the regular beach that its not a disturbance. Its actually rather intruiging to see so many people willing to go and try it. We normally wouldn't do something like that, but had a blast stepping out of our "comfort zone" for the little bit we were there, just to say we did it. It's vacation..why not? All in all, its a great resort to go to if you just wanna go to relax. There's no huge party scene that can get out of hand. There's no access to the beach so that locals can't come to try and sell their "goods". The room service and maid service was great. It was nice to leave the room for the day and come back to a made bed, fresh towels and an empty garbage and then also come back from dinner to a turned-down bed and a romantic atmosphere. Its private and intimate and is a great place to vacation. We do plan to go back and hope you enjoy your stay as well.
