Praised as the "Best Spa in the Caribbean" by Travel + Leisure, the Oasis Spa at Couples Negril fully embraces its idyllic setting by offering its exclusive treatments in organic therapy rooms, an open-air thatched hut on the beach, or in the tucked-away intimacy of the Tree House.

Feast on the extravagant breakfast buffets at the poolside Cassava Terrace, delight in the nuances of Asian cuisine at the refined Lychee eatery, or explore the gourmet dishes of Jamaica at the acclaimed Otaheite restaurant.

Fantastic Second Trip
VeekeeRox, Raleigh

We stayed at Couples Negril for a week in early June 2016 for the second time in two years. They have added some nice amenities since our last stay, and we had a wonderful, close to perfect, trip. The Veggie Bar is new, and we really enjoyed the offerings of dips and fresh vegetables, in addition to some healthy sweet treats and delicious juice drinks every day. A lot of the floats had been replaced since our last trip. There was construction next door, but this didn't bother us at all. The ocean and the beach were as beautiful as we remembered, and the vendors were not overly pushy. We did the One Love Pub Crawl, which I reviewed separately, and it was a great time. I definitely recommend doing this excursion if you are staying for more than just a handful of days. We kayaked a lot on this trip, and that was really fun. The water sports guys are always really helpful. We loved our room, a garden room in building one on the third floor. Last time we had a ground floor beach view room in building nine, and while that was nice, we actually liked this room better. Being on the third floor was wonderful for us - we loved our balcony tree top view. I took advantage of some of the fitness offerings, using the fitness equipment and taking a yoga class. Both were fun, and the fitness room is well-equipped and maintained. We ate in all of the dining offerings, and enjoyed the food. I do think that I would have gotten tired of the restaurants if our stay was any longer at all, but they were pretty much perfect for the length of stay. We ate a ton of jerk chicken in the grill, and we did like it a lot. We also really liked the snapper sandwich there. The best meal that we ate was in the reservation restaurant, Otaheite. We only ate there once and if I were to make a recommendation to another couple visiting for seven days, I would say go there at least twice. My best memory from the trip was just floating with my husband in the bay in the early evening after a storm, holding hands and spinning on the calm sea while gazing at the clouds. It's hard for me to imagine a more perfect and romantic moment. More>

Wonderful Vacation !!

My husband & I went to Couples Negril in early May of this year. It was our first time to Jamaica. We had a wonderful relaxing vacation. It was the best ! The resort is small & cozy. The rooms are spacious & the room service is great !! The resort is the cleanest resort we have ever been to. The food was very good. I have a few food allergies & had no problem at all eating at the resort. Try all the restaurants. The beach is the BEST !! The water is warm & the beach itself is kept very clean. . We stayed on the resort the entire week. We were never bored. There is always something to do. We would go back to Jamaica & stay at Couples Negril again.Enjoy !! More>

Just can't stay anywhere else...

We made our 5th trip to Couples Negril in November 2015, and the resort is definitely at it's best. Again, I always like to qualify this as saying that while we are Repeaters, if you read my other reviews of various establishments, you will see that if there is truly a problem, I'll be the first to say it. The biggest changes since our last trip had to do with the diving schedule and the recent construction. The diving schedule is still the same, but on Sun-Fri, when they split the dives between one morning dive (9a) and one afternoon dive (1:30p), they are now letting the afternoon divers decide if they want to take the second dive immediately after the morning dive gets back in. This is huge from a convenience perspective. As a diving couple who doesn't like sitting around killing time between the first and second dives, it is great to be able to knock both dives out before lunch to enjoy the rest of the day. The next major change was the addition of the long-awaited veggie bar that was already a staple at the other Couples resorts. I had no idea what to expect and didn't understand why other people made such a big deal out of this...until the resort put one in. Between smoothies, cold soups, sweet potato chips, and a bunch of different small plates, this became a go-to at least a couple times a day. Our trip was immediately after it opened, and it is great having an additional., healthy option throughout the day. There was a heat issue initially, because it is south-facing and didn't have an awning, but we ran into the owner, Lee Issa, the first day, and he said they were planning to install an awning, which has since been completed. Other than those couple items, it was mostly business as usual. Same great staff, same amazing dive team, and the quality of the resort is very boutique, while still maintaining the consistency of the Couples brand. REMEMBER, it's YOUR attitude and YOUR expectations that will make or break any vacation. If you come with an attitude of respect, you will have an amazing trip. If you come feeling entitled, well, you're going to get what you deserve. We all understand this is not the least expensive trip out there, but money doesn't buy happiness. You get out what you put into it. While we love Couples Negril and pride ourselves as Repeaters, I must say the biggest complaint after the last two trips is the attitudes of some of the other Repeaters. I was absolutely amazed at the behavior of some of these people and shocked that it somehow entitles people to be rude and act like they own the place, only because they've been there more than once. I literally saw one guy push right in front of a bunch of people standing in line for food, and said "I can do this, because I've been here over 20 times." We just booked our next trip back, but were very close to choosing a different resort, strictly because of the behavior of other Repeaters. So, why do we keep returning? -Compact resort that is easy to get around, but Negril is an easy place to get out and about in, so you never feel too claustrophobic. We don't like wasting time walking all over some big resort on our vacations. -The staff is amazing. Many people will complain about the staff not being that great or expecting tips, but this is not the norm. We have always gotten great service, and do not ever break the no-tipping rule. -Inclusions: seriously, all tips included, except for the airport driver, spa, and catamaran staff. All diving and equipment, catamaran booze cruise, airport transfers, some excursions, exercise classes, snorkeling, waterskiing, internet café, a great fitness center, gourmet food, and premium drinks is part of the deal. This is an actual ALL-inclusive. The Wifi coverage is much improved from our last visit. -Negril is a super friendly place. We have been off-resort on every one of our trips and never been concerned for our safety. No matter what you hear about Kingston, Western Jamaica is incredibly chill. -Family: in the last 8 years, we have become friends not only with other guests, but many staff as well. We keep up on social media, and every time we see each other, hugs are in order. -Couples Negril is physically one of the most beautiful places in the Caribbean. Situated on Bloody Bay, the water is calm and warm, the sand is like fine powder and is kept up daily, and the grounds are well-manicured with lush vegetation. Every room is a great room at Couples Negril. There is little difference in the quality of the difference price categories. We also added a bunch of new adventures, like a TimAir flight from the airport, a stop by 3 Dives, Rick's Café, and another One Love Bus Tour, but I will cover those in separate reviews. Enjoy!

Would give 3 1/2 stars if possible.

After visiting Couples Swept Away and Couples San Souci, my girlfriend and I decided to give Couples Negril a try. We booked a basic garden view suite and were placed in a corner third floor garden view room. Unlike the bungalow style rooms you get at CSA, CN rooms are laid out in big hotel like blocks. The rooms were always cleaned well by housekeeping but their timing was inconsistent, some days they came as early as 9:30am other days they would come as late as 4pm. And though toilet paper was always stocked the tissue boxes were not. Other than that they do a great job. The mini bar was usually stocked everyday but were sometimes out of the drinks we requested. Room service wAs great and always on time except for one day when they never showed up. Nobody is perfect so it didnt really bother me. What did slightly bother me was the hit or miss on the service at the beach grill and the fruit and veggie bar. Half the employees here were awesome and very welcoming and attentive however the other half gave off the vibe that I was unconvincing them when ordering. Overall the quality of the food at all the restaurants was good not great. I defiantly felt like CSA and CSS had superior food and food choices. The entertainment staff was awesome at CN as they were at CSA. The beach was the best part about the resort itself. Though it only gets about 5ft deep at the deepest it's still enough to swim and float in. The resort I in a small bay so the water is usually pretty calm. Unlike CSA, CN has far less hustlers on the beach trying to sell you whatever, the few that are there are also far less pushy than the ones at CSA. Also at night they usually go home and leave the beach empty. At CSA they'll still try and sell you stuff from the beach hours after sun down. Now to talk a little about the people vacationing here. Beer bellies as far as the eye can see and a few fit and average people, lol. Most of the patrons are southern Americans, many from the Carolinas and surrounding states. Being from southern California my gf and I felt a little out of place but didn't bother us much since we tend to keep to ourselves on vacation anyway. In closing after staying at Couples Negril, my girl friend and I have decided we like CN but prefer CSA overall. But regardless of our opinion, all 3 of the couples resorts were exceptional and we would recommend any of the 3 we've stayed at, we just personally prefer CSA. More>

Home away from Home

Home away from home - that's the feeling you'll experience from the time you check-in. Accommodations are well kept and are appropriate given the lifestyle. Food and drinks are plentiful and with lots of variety to choose from. Would suggest that they continue to add more of the native cuisine as a way of giving their guest a wider variety of the Jamaican culture (meal). recreational activities on site are friendly and intuitive - take advantage of the included golfing at the nearby Negril Golf Course. Many thanks to the folks at Beach Bum Vacation (Haley)... for their planning insight and for making our stay at Couples a memorable one. More>
