To be considered for AAA rating and approval, restaurants and lodgings must
undergo at least two extensive, impromptu annual inspections a year by one
of the organization’s 65 full-time, professional evaluators.  Properties
must meet 27 necessary requirements based on member expectations in the
categories of cleanliness, comfort, security, and safety.  Properties that
are approved are assigned a rating of one to five AAA Diamonds.  The
Diamond ratings signify the range of services, amenities, and decor
provided.  Approximately 32,000 hotels in the US, Canada, Mexico, and the
Caribbean are AAA approved and diamond rated.



In order to be granted the Four-Diamond rating that Couples Sans Souci
received, establishments must be upscale in all areas. The AAA website
states that Four-Diamond resorts means, “Accommodations are progressively
more refined and stylish. The physical attributes reflect an obvious
enhanced level of quality throughout the hotel and include an extensive
array of amenities combined with a high degree of hospitality, service, and
attention to detail.”  Hotels must meet AAA’s highest rating standards,
reflecting the ultimate in luxury and sophistication, and are subject to
final review by a special Four-Diamond committee.  The Four-Diamond award
epitomizes not only the level of excellence of the property but also of the
staff’s dedication to maintaining the highest standards of service for its
guests.  Couples Sans Souci’s dedication to providing a relaxing, enjoyable
retreat of uncompromising quality has earned the AAA Four-Diamond rating.
