Best Honeymoon Resort!

We loved our honeymoon at Couples San Souci in Ocho Rios, Jamaica! The staff were beyond friendly and helpful and the resort was BEAUTIFUL! We are already planning to return in the next couple years!!

Wonderful Experience at Couples San Souci!
Oct 31 2018
We had a wonderful experience at Couples San Souci! I liked that the accommodations used to be apartments, so it's more of a suite than just one room with a bed - it was nice to be able to get up and move around without disturbing my husband, who sleeps much later than I do. The grounds are so beautiful, and we enjoyed exploring all the paths and little nooks. This resort is probably better for more fit people, since there are a TON of stairs, and it was quite a hike from our room at one end of the resort to the beach and restaurants on the other end. All the staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful. The food and the drinks were top notch. We appreciated the variety and the quality. I enjoyed complimentary activities including yoga, aquacise, snorkeling, kayaking, boat ride, and trip to Dunn's River Falls. My only complaint is that the bed and pillows were a bit hard.

Fantastic Resort, Incredible Resort
Jun 26 2017
The resort is incredible. It is not overly large, and is built on several levels of on the hill beside the beach, so it feels rather small and private. The staff are very personable and friendly. They remember you (and your drinks). We loved this resort compared to much larger ones where you are just a number. This resort also has the highest percentage of repeat guests compared to the other Couples. It was around 48% of guests were repeat guests while we were there. That's incredible! We certainly hope to be a repeat guest. The only thing to consider is that it is a 2hr van ride from the airport (which has a Couple lounge area and free beer). They also ask you to tip the driver and the person loading your bags on the van. Otherwise everything else is included and you are NOT to tip the staff at the resort. No tipping pressure was very nice. The meals were fantastic, the best we've had. The water sports activities are all included. We snorkeled twice, kayaked, paddle boarded, and did the glass bottom boat. The only downside we really experienced is that the water sports staff that actually take you out (they are in blue water shirts) are not quite as friendly as the rest of the staff. They frequently are the only ones there to answer questions or help you reserve your spot, and they are vague with their responses, or act as if you are bothering them at times. Other times, there was a separate girl working the sports reservations booth which was helpful. But there were several times we almost missed our activity because they were vague and told us to wait, only to see another guy walk over to the boat without anyone saying anything to us and running to it before he left. They need a "waiting area" or better directions for what people should do that have never done the activities before.

Another amazing trip to Couples Sans Souci! We have celebrated a honeymoon, anniversary and a birthday there and can't wait to go back! It was glorious relaxing and having everything taken care of after working so hard back home in order to go on vacation! Cannot say enough to give it proper justice! Love everything about the resort! Thank you!!!

Intimate and Serene
Jun 06 2016
The size of the resort was perfect for our honeymoon. Not too big. Not too small. The hotel staff was accommodating and friendly. The food was a fair, not great, not too awful. Options for included water sports and activities were a great way to expand our honeymoon experience. I highly recommend a couples massage in the Hide Away hut on the cliff over the ocean, an experience I will never forget.

Exceptional service and facilities. It is the staff that make this place what it is - had a wonderful time. Only negative was the room - very tired and dark and not 5 star. Stayed in C block - everything worked but now in need of modernisation. Traveled with BA - not sure I would do so again as departing from Kingston was a free for all and stressful - TUI were better organised. You will not be disappointed with this resort - it is luxury. We will certainly love to go back.

Jamaican Hospitality! its a real thing!

So far my favorite vacation of all time! My husband and I loved Couple San Souci, Great staff, lots to do and see. So many reasons to return again. I recommend this to any couple either to relax, or to find some adventure for a reasonable cost.

Just Amazing

Spent a week in this hotel - the only way I can describe my stay at this hotel, it was “just amazing”. Quite pricey, however so worth it. At the end of my week, just didn’t want to leave. There was nothing to complain about. My holiday experience will be remembered has one of the most relaxing enjoyable holidays ever. Why I would return: Excellent food, breakfast lots of variety, Champagne breakfast if you desire. Two very good restaurants on site, for evening meal. Room service (could do with more choice on the menu), Fantasic staff, couldn’t do enough for you. Beautiful room - excellent view. Mini bar stacked daily (extra for premium alcohol). If you run out, room service will bring you more. Good live entertainment, daily. Lovely beach - enough beach beds for everyone. Friendly people Free water sports Gym - daily group exercise. Two pools. Free trips out, including Dunns River Falls. Free day trip to a sister hotel, transport there and back. No children. Hotel also has a special dinner for couples who return. This hotel is 5* bliss.

Oh yah mon!

The travel here is not easy, but once you get here, life is good. This is the perfect place to rest, relax, and have fun. Couples San Souci is an 18 and over resort, so other then laughs heard from the bar, it is quiet and all about you. There is some nightlife, but not annoyingly so. There are SUP boards and sale boats along with other water toys included. It is all inclusive so food and drink are completely covered and you don’t need to tote along a purse or wallet daily. The bar tenders, restaurant staff, and activity staff are the bomb diggity! Respect ✊. My husband and I will definitely be back.

Great hotel, really friendly and helpful staff and great beaches. This was our third stay and we will definitely be back next year. When we arrived, we asked if we could be moved to our preferred block and the hotel staff were extremely helpful in getting us moved.
