Set on 19 acres of Negril, Jamaica's, sparkling Seven Mile Beach, Couples Swept Away is a 24-hour, all-inclusive resort. From the moment you arrive at this couples-only escape, you'll be in awe of the Caribbean paradise unfolding before you. Exotic flowers bloom amidst acres of green flora on seven miles of the purest white-sand beach on the island. Dotted among the tropical gardens, there are open-air cafes, small pool enclaves, and fresh-fruit oases for you to discover. Never crowded or hurried, the resort offers an intimate tranquility and, when desired, total seclusion.

With 312 Caribbean-style rooms and suites, all with a private balcony or verandah, Couples Swept Away is your home away from home. All rooms embrace a quiet elegance, with cedar furnishings and pure, white linens. Plantation shutters open onto the verandah with views of gardens and the azure sea.

The spa at Couples Swept Away takes personal pampering to a new level of delight. Eight private treatment rooms await alongside a Buddha plunge pool, while the eucalyptus steam room and showers are mere steps away. Sporting an exceptional 10-acre fitness complex, Couples Swept Away offers endless opportunities to be active. Within the complex, you will find 10 tennis courts, squash and racquetball facilities, a fully equipped gym with cardio and weight training equipment, a private aerobics room, a 25-meter lap pool, a basketball court, and an outdoor running track.

For beach and water-lovers, an excellent selection of gear such as sea kayaks, snorkeling fins, masks, sailboats, and wind surfers are readily available. Need help getting started? You can get private lessons. Three swimming pools and five Jacuzzis are located throughout the property.

Six unique restaurants serve the finest international cuisine with Caribbean flavors: The Palms, Feathers (fine dining), Lemongrass (Thai-fusion), Patois Patio (Mediterranean fare with wood-burning oven), Alfresco Sea Grape Caf and Veggie Bar, and Cabana Grill. Enjoy the festive atmosphere while sipping a Couples Sunset or Couples Mojito signature cocktail served at any of eight bars, including a swim-up option. After dinner, listen to international musical talent covering everything from steel drums to soul, reggae rhythms to rock 'n' roll. There's a beat to match every mood. The piano bar offers a chic indoor setting for cocktails and live entertainment five nights of the week, and transforms itself into a lively nightclub for the other two. Kick up your heels after dark as you embrace the spirit of this beautiful place.

Awesome ocean and beach
NICHOLAS P.

We really enjoyed our time at Couples Swept Away. The ocean was incredibly clear and beautiful. The resort is outdated and not much to do after 6 pm but we enjoyed our stay. Staff was very friendly.

We've been to many nicer resorts for a lot less money. Seemed run down for the rating. Needed much maintenance. Pool and pool bar was disappointing. Main pool was very small.

This resort was awesome. The beach was beautiful and the sun set over the ocean with powder sand. The resort staff was wonderful and helped with all questions and amenities. The food was delicious and we enjoyed the service as much as the food.

We were here back in 2008. I believe the quality has gone down. Housekeeping times were widely different times sometimes not until 4:30 pm and no special touches or differences each night like they used to. Bars had no real fruit and fruity drinks were watery. There is a strict no tipping policy. We usually tip anyway but this time the staff were all over you hinting for tips. Not like it used to be.

Hotel Renovation Disclosure It was terrible.
BRENT T.
Jun 22 2017
Apple Vacations failed to inform us that there was renovation going on during our honeymoon! We were awakened everyday by the LOUD ANNOYING sound of jack hammering. The facility was working on a block of rooms right next to the beach and our room! We sat on the beach and listened to this crap all day everyday! It was terrible. I will not book with you again.

Entertainment for a retirement
JASON G.
Mar 16 2017
This resort should have more entertainment for a younger crowd. Any dance or music for the younger crowd didn't start until 1130pm. We are in our 40's and after a long day of sun and water activities not to mention the drinks and outside excursions we lulled to sleep by the dinner music that is meant for the elderly. Don't get me wrong I thought the resort was good and most of the staff were great! I would like to see the other side of the resort to have a more vibrant nightlife.

We absolutely will return to this resort, the trip was everything we expected plus more! We loved the beach, clean (the staff did a great job keeping it groomed). We want to plan our next trip already with more friends! Drinks were great, food was great, the beach party was fun! The ocean was beautiful!

Staff was phenomenol! Service was Great! Food was Good except for at Cabana Grill which was often out of some food otems and food was just fair. Need to work on entertainment especially by swim up pool bar and offer more day games and activities for guests and things for guest to do when it rains.

Staff was great, but the Hotel was not safe and dirty
BRENT B.
Jun 02 2016
Good Morning, I'm not the kind of person that complains, or even responds to these. However I think it's important to let you guys know that the hotel it's self was dirty and the drain in the shower didn't work. We even told them everyday and they said ok, we will look at it. After the 6th day they just said "I know". Our whole bathroom flooded every time we took a shower. Two of the hot-tubs had the light just rolling in the bottom of the tub. They became disconnected from their housing but when asked if they were going to have them fixed, they said, "Don't worry, all safe." I know that was wrong and I refused to get back in them the whole trip. But the staff and the workers were great and friendly. Always greeting us with a smile and doing their best to make us happy. I was extremely disappointed in the hotel, seeing we decided to go here just for that place and it was highly recommended. If I were to rebook again, it wouldn't even be a consideration. It did not live up to the website or the booklets.

I daydream about this trip once a month
Seth M,

I can't say anything bad about this place or the trip. Great food, beaches, service and alcohol. First off, I didn't like my first room on the first floor so they let me change. Secondly, I'm a big food guy and all of it was great. With all the different restaurants we never got tired of the food and we were there for 8 days. Beaches were very clean and the stocked mini bar (daily) with healthy Jamaican breakfast every morning was awesome. I'm from Santa Barbara California so I know what great beach life should be like.

Lots of good reviews, was recommended by a friend and it was awesome! We stayed 7 nights in ‘LalaLand’ it was hard to say goodbye today. My perspective not in other reviews recently: - Jamaican hospitality was amazing. - Food for all styles from buffet to fancy dress-up and good quality. - My wife is an all-day beach bum, I like some action to break the monotony of laying there all day- CSA includes a lot of activities to break it up. We paddle boarded, kayaked, glass bottom boat, snorkeled, beach yoga, HIIT class, Zumba, etc and we’re on the beach morning to night and didn’t really feel super lazy or super busy it was great and all included (much more then listed, this just what we did) - We like value and quality and aren’t heavy drinkers, being our first all inclusive I was paying attention to whether I felt like I was paying premium pricing and getting cheated if not drinking like a fish (like that Luau we’ve all been to in Hawaii where you’re thinking $125, $75 of this is for liquor that I’m not drinking)... nope, didn’t feel that at all we definitely felt we got our $’s worth. -agree with reviews about the ocean view level rooms and the vegetation blocks the ocean view. They need to change the name perhaps to beach view or closer to beach to adjust expectations or make sure each room has a line of site that can see the ocean. But, when the sun is scorching, having that vegetation was super nice. - if you’ve read this far, and because the majority of guests are Americans, smoke, as in second hand smoke from various types of smoking is something we did have to manage. It was like pre-smoker zoning in America. while most weren’t smoking, those that did pretty much didn’t care that much on the beach or their balconies whether others who were non-smokers were already there before lighting up and next you know you’ve got smoke drifting over your beautiful, clear sky beach lounging or can’t go on your balcony without getting that relaxing feeling from other kind of smoke drift. Not a huge deal, but if you are smoke sensitive you need to be aware you will be managing second-hand smoke on the beaches and balconies. - our first night room had 6-8 group of super rowdy group partiers in rooms below... let’s just say super loud morning and night with no sense there were others staying at the resort. Netroy in guest relations was amazing and understanding and moved us thankfully and the last 6 nights were more quiet. - mini bar - we had them clear out all the liquor and go Diet Coke and ginger ale heavy and they didn’t miss a beat and consistently restocked correctly. - we will miss - morning coffee service to our room, beach lounging, daily afternoon nacho and ice cream cone snacks, well really everything 👊 All in all, we will definitely be coming back to our new Jamaican home!

This was our fourth return in as many years — better than a cruise ship in that you do not have to leave the compound to swim, tennis, sail, dine, try other sports without the cramped space or motion issues. Adult only with a very attentive, friendly staff

Pros: The beach, food, staff, and grounds were awesome! Cons: we paid for an ocean view verandah but the trees blocked it. We could not get wash clothes for days, even after telling the front desk! For the price you pay, they should be able to purchase more! Overall, it was a wonderful week!!

Lots of Positives, But Not Perfect

We have now officially been to all the Couples Resorts in Jamaica. This one was our favourite overall. All the Couples properties had wonderful food and service, and accommodations. Both Negril Couples are on the best beach, hands down, and weather seems to be less rainy in Negril. We always travel in the same time frame (mid to end of November), and we had gorgeous weather in both Negritos visits , however, rain was the issue in both Ochos Rios visits, plus a rough ocean on that side of the island. The tennis program at Swept Away was the clincher for us, every Couples resort advertises tennis, but it was only this resort that really had an amazing tennis "family". The sports centre kept great track of scheduled tennis lessons, and we took advantage of every thing they offered. The visiting pro, Anni, was an amazing organizer and shared her tennis expertise in a fun and educational manner in both clinics and the round robin. One of the resident pros, Norson, was a very knowledgeable instructor, and we enjoyed his private lessons. We took advantage of all this tennis opportunity and still had time to enjoy the amazing beach. The dance club was always a fun way to end the evening, it was far more active then I remember of the other 3 resorts. The nightly entertainment was great, especially the Halloween Parade and the Reggae Dance Performance. We loved the fact that we had crossing guards taking us back and forth from the resort to the Sports Centre, that is one dangerous road, but they kept us safe. Constructive Criticism : Piano Bar: We love when they have the staff and talented guest singers perform, but perhaps for a change, maybe once a week host a guest talent contest which entails an audition. ( I don't have a talented bone in my body, so this isn't a personal dream of mine). Swim Up Bar: It is your typical sit around the bar group, however, we witnessed many drunken guests, who could hardly stand up, and kept being served by the bar staff. We aren't against drinking by any means, but I felt very concerned overall for these guests. One fell down the pool stairs, then fell off the pool stool, and then received a drink from the bartender. I know that there is no driving involved, but we have all heard of the balcony accidents at resorts all around the world. Perhaps a security guard could be posted in the late afternoon, in this area, it might help to prevent some bad situations from developing. You can't always assume the person's partner is looking after them, they could be out on an excursion or just as inebriated. This has caused many people to avoid this area (many reviewers have referred to this issue), and that was how we dealt with it, but I also think it is an issue that should be reviewed by management. Daily Update: We found it very difficult to keep track of the daily events. There was a weekly overview, but I think the daily one should be more visually posted. The Sports Centre had a very detailed memo board, but on the main resort, we saw a small memo board, but it was not always updated. I was still very able to give this resort 5 stars, based on key elements that guests demand: food, drinks, accommodations, location, and entertainment. Suggestions are mainly for management to consider, proactive is always better than reactive.
