My partner and I (late 30s/early 40s) stayed at Couples Negril in early March 2017. It was our first time in Jamaica and while we have stayed at all-inclusives before we tend to book at larger resorts that have been recently built or renovated and are a bit on the splashier side. Couples Negril was a departure from that and we couldn't be happier with our choice. It's a smaller resort that does a terrific job of executing everything well. The rooms are nice -- not extravagant, but nicely appointed with lots of storage including hooks, which we found really handy. We were in building and had no problems with street noise -- I'm a light sleeper and often have to use earplugs when travelling, but didn't have to at CN. The quality and selection of the food were excellent. The beach and pool were both fantastic, the "red flag" drink service was genius and the staff were warm and friendly. The evening entertainment was really good, too. Highlights included the pool/ocean floats that are laid out on each beach chair, and the natural foliage at the beach which was great for shade. We also enjoyed the fitness classes we did with McNeil. While at CN we did a "trading places" outing to Couples Swept Away. The beach at CSA was phenomenal, BUT there was a lack of shade and as a result everybody tended to squeeze under the palm trees set closer to the buildings in order to avoid the sun's intensity. This detracted from the experience for us, and as a result we preferred the beach at CN. We will definitely be repeat customers at Couples Resorts and would book at Couples Negril again in a heartbeat.

We choose in second week of our holiday to take up the Couples hotel exchange from Tower Isle to Negril. What a smart move as the weather had got stormy and set at Ocho Rios. This hotel has a completely different look plantation house feel and more space in hotel grounds and beach. The welcome in reception on arrival from concierge to receptionist was friendly and slick. We had a garden room in block 8 that looked I to lovely gardens and pond but you did hear road noise. Bathroom was a set room and shower was fantastic. Just point it slightly towards window and you don't get water all over bathroom floor. We enjoyed the Asian and Mediterranean restaurant the best. Service was excellent in all of them and at all the bars. Particularly the piano bar. Top marks for serving lime with G&T something can't get at Tower Isle. The beach was lovely enough shady spots with enough sun lounger there and around pool. The sea is quite shallow here but lovely and warm. I loved the optics available on beach so guests could get there own drinks and not stray too far from lounger. There where different craft stalls on beach everyday. We bought a beautiful painted picture of Jamaican birds from Thomas. He had a variety of pictures and a lovely memory of Jamaica. The sunsets are fantastic here and we usually saw it set with a couple of glasses of rose and gin and tonic. Absolutely loved this hotel. Fantastic end to our holiday seeing another part of Jamaica and another hotel in Couples chain.

Rough Start But Relaxing

We just returned from our seventh (7) trip to Couples Negril from March 7-14. There is always something to learn on each trip about Couples. First the not so good start!! When we arrived and were welcomed by some old friends (staff), I approached the desk to check in. Greeted as always with a cool towel and champagne, I was only hopeful that my one and only request would be met. I had sent several E Mails to try and secure a room in building 5, far enough in advance of our trip but close enough to feel that this could be met. Bearing in mind that we have always stayed in building 5, I received several responses that my request had been received and they would do the best that could. When I asked about our room number, I was informed that we were in building 6, directly beside the Casava Terrace, where the band performs. I asked about my request for building 5 and was told that they had received the E Mail but the building was full. As I had explained to the desk clerk, I had sent several requests with plenty of notice to accommodate their schedule and after coming back for the seventh time, they should be able to have handled this request. I received a flat out "No Room in building 5". She did say that she would try for the next day. I asked for the manager and was refused. I accepted what they gave us and came back in the morning to request a change of rooms again. With some assistance from our old friends, they moved us to building 5. The other small but really disappointing issue was that you earn rewards points as you continue to stay at the resort. My wife and I added up the points and it put us at the upper level for credits. We were told that after four (4) years, your points start to drop off. So therefore, you ultimately lose a weeks worth of points which hurt you on your level. The answer they gave me was it is written on the rewards description and you just gained back seven days. Well, it is written in fine print about the four years, but you gained back the seven days but not for this trip. So to sum up this mess, you must go back basically more than once a year to keep up your rewards points. After all of that, a very relaxing vacation was had with friends that we had met there several years ago. I may return, someday but not right away. They did upgrade the showers by adding a half glass between the shower and toilet. If you don't turn the shower head toward the wall, you will flood the floor. The food is descent but not over the top. There are always several choices on the menu to look at and dine on. We always met at the Helicona Restaurant and the wives chose the most appealing restaurant for the evening. Breakfast as always was my favorite with multiple choices at your finger tips. They have added a vegetarian area to eat which looked very nice but we did not have a chance to sample it. The choice or choices of beer are limited all day around the hotel to Red Stripe or Red Stripe light. I believe at night you may have another added choice at the piano bar. I saw a fair amount of call brand alcohol at the bars and drinks were made to your likeness. We saw a lot of different ages from honeymooners to middle age and older with many guests from other countries as well. All in all it was a very nice vacation but I have to honestly say that I am ready to move on from Couples.

Outstanding

This was our 3rd couples visit and 2nd to Couples Negril. Our week was outstanding! We stayed in building 6 on the 3rd floor, we had a great view of the ocean and the beach. We loved the balcony in the mornings and afternoons. The beach is just as we remembered - perfect. Sand is groomed every morning- no rocks or seaweed just soft white sand and clear beautiful water. Might be our favorite beach anywhere. We again met some really great people and had a fun time at the beach. The beach bar is perfect! No issue with vendors, never a thought not to have a beach chair or clean towel. Food and beverage was good- top shelf liquor and plenty of Red stripe! Enjoyed all restaurants and the buffet. (I might even have met the inventor of AC at dinner) The new resort next door is enormous and seems a bit out of place for Bloody Bay. Progress I guess. Everything you could want is there, we had a massage, played golf, tennis and sailed. All inclusive! Anyway- great staff, clean rooms great beach. Book it! You won't be sorry!

Didn't disappoint!

Fifteen years later, we returned to celebrate our 15 year anniversary. We were very anxious that it wouldn't be as good as we remembered on our honeymoon! However, we had an awesome trip, and we were not disappointed! We traveled with friends, and we had a great time on the beautiful beach, snorkeling, eating, etc., etc.! Service was great with the exception of one single server. Rooms are fine, nothing special. They do need to remodel. The patch work is showing. But the activities, food, service, care to the overall resort is great.
