Are you looking for a picturesque getaway for your destination wedding or honeymoon? With it’s unparalleled romantic atmosphere, you won’t find any spring breakers here. The décor throughout this resort is unpretentious with a true Caribbean vibe. Tropical plants, palm trees, grape trees amongst beautiful tropical flowers and little koi ponds engulf the pathways and buildings of it’s surroundings. It is literally this inspiring! Visiting the same resort twice is very rare for me, as I love to experience different places. Admittedly, I have visited this one twice, and would go again in a heartbeat; I love it this much! Here are some highlights of this amazing romantic oasis located in Negril, Jamaica.
Romance Rewards Program – Once booked at this resort, you can access their rewards program to do your pre-check in, receive some rewards and resort credits based on the number of nights previously stayed. With this, you can pre-order your mini-bar and make your room requests. On my 2nd stay, my significant other & I received two t-shirts with the Couples’ logo, a resort credit of $300 which I used at the spa and my hubby used against his upgraded diving course fees. A great little bonus to make you feel special as a repeat customer.
Dedicated private airport lounge (Montego Bay) and private shuttle – at no extra cost! Here you can enjoy a cold red stripe on tap, change into lighter clothes while your private airport transfer becomes available. No matter how you book this resort, the airport transfers are all privately dedicated to Couples’ customers, either couples staying at Couples Negril or Couples Swept Away, so there are no other stops along the way.
The service – As we entered the lobby, we were instantly greeted with a cold towel and a glass of champagne. Although no one steps over your feet to wait on you constantly, the general service around the restaurants and bars were top notch. Beach service was a hit and a miss, so if you’re someone who needs this kind of attention, don’t be disappointed if no one waits on you every minute of the day.
Rooms – Although the rooms are very basic with a rustic flare, they all have amazing spacious balconies. There are multiple room categories, but my favorite is the Beachfront Verandah Suite. It is literally steps from the beach. Waking up and having coffee in my rocking chair on the balcony while looking and hearing the waves crash on that smooth sand was one of the highlights of my trip! Yep, I’m this simple…
Food – One thing that stood out to me was the freshness of the food. All prepared to order, from jerk chicken to sweet potato chips, everything was mouth watering. With 5 restaurants to choose from, you won’t go hungry here. The snack bar, which offers delicious jerk chicken and more fast food options, is open 24 hours; or you can choose to eat at one of the finer restaurants with a more romantic atmosphere.
Amenities – One of my favorite; the sports complex. A full blown sports complex located across the road from the resort with a lap pool, a running track, open air weight room, gym class room, tennis court and spa. It has a fresh juice bar on site, some loungers and a very serene atmosphere near the spa area. A great way to shed some calories from the indulgence of Jamaican food and Red Stripe beer!
All included activities – This is where the resort shines from the others. Everything, I mean EVERYTHING is included. From tips, snorkelling, diving, golf to the catamaran excursion, you won’t have to dish out your extra hard cash here. Unless you want to buy some souvenirs or indulge in a spa treatment, no money is required for the duration of your stay. The catamaran excursion is a great way to explore Negril’s sea side from the water, sailing along the coast up to the Cliffside area. The crew on board knows how to make sure everyone has a good time with rum punch, beer and some singing and dancing.
Beach – So, I’ve saved the best for last. There are no words to describe the beauty of the water and sand that make up 7 Mile Beach in Negril, Jamaica. White powdery sand with crystal clear turquoise water is what it’s all about. As another bonus, Couples offers chair cushions that serves as a floating mat for your use in the warm Caribbean Sea. I mean, what more could you ask for? A drink in one hand while laying in this glistening sea! Pure Bliss!
At the end of my week ‘stay I felt like a new woman. Rejuvenated and relaxed. A true romantic getaway that couples need every now and then to re-spark that connection.

P.S. I could go on and write more amazing things about Negril, but I’ll save that for another post – where I’ll share more great insights on my love of Jamaica. Stay tuned!
