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 Cafe 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.

I would not get the atrium room again. It is beautiful for sure but the noise was very hard to overcome. You hear all the noise from the street, the maid carts rolling all hours, the people walking by and talking and neighbors fighting

This is the best all inclusive resort we have ever stayed at. Check in was wonderful complete with wine and a cold cloth. The room was very nice and the hotel and grounds are well kept. They continually work at this resort. The turn down service is a really nice touch. The beach is one of the best in the world. The water is beautiful, clear and calm. The water sports included are top notch. We enjoyed the water bikes, glass bottom boat ride, snorkeling and the catamaran ride were all clos to perfect. The food was really good and the service was excellent. Everyone was really friendly. The drinks were tasty and the bars were enjoyable. We were impressed with live music at breakfast! Some of the nightly entertainment performers were really talented. The piano bar was fun but really cold. We did not eat at Lemongrass but we did eat at Feathers. We personally liked the other restaurants better. The staff help make the vacation great.

In fairness, some of the answers to the survey are "good" instead of excellent but the entire experience overall is excellent and we will be back! The beach and ocean are fantastic, rooms are rustic but nice, food is the best we've had at any of the ten all-inclusives we've stayed at. Great place!

This is not the first time we have been to Couples Swept Away, and it won't be the last. The atmosphere is always relaxing, with plenty of fun activities, if you choose. The food is wonderful, and the rooms, although starting to be a little dated, are always clean and well maintained. Who spends much time in the room, anyhow, when you are on Seven Mile Beach in Negril? Water sports personnel were helpful if you chose to do some of those activities. All the employees were very friendly. We loved every minute of our stay at Couples Swept Away!

The property and beach were the largest and nicest of all the properties We saw in Negril. The food exceeded our expectations as compared with other all inclusive resorts. The staff was warm and welcoming from the concierge to the grounds keeper. We highly recommend this resort!

Grounds well maintained, room was beautiful. Staff was not friendly or personal. We did not feel welcome, were not told anything about the facility and wait staff at the Palms were inattentive. We constantly had to refresh our own water and coffee.

My wife and I arrived Oct. 28. 2018 and were impressed from the start. From check in to check out, everything was great. The beach is beautiful and no rocks in the water. The food was some of the best we had in our many travels at All Inclusive Resorts. The staff never failed to smile, or offer help for whatever we needed. If you go, do not miss the One Love Pub Crawl. Lembert is a great host/driver. One of the funnest times we ever had on vacation.

When we arrived the staff was very friendly and welcoming. We had so much fun with the staff at the Tiki bars and the drinks were to die for. I wished that there was a better variety of food because it was basically the same thing every day. The biggest issue I had was the shower. Every time we used the shower it would not drain and water would go all over the bathroom floor. We called twice and it was never fixed and we talked to other couples and the same thing was happening to them. Also wished there was better room service. They only had breakfast and it was not hot breakfast. The day we were leaving we had to be at the bus at 6am. I asked the night before if room service could be there right at 530 or soon after (thats when they start) due to us having a two hour drive to the airport. We waited around as long as we could, but they never came. Other than that, the beach was beautiful and the staff really was amazing to us.

The week started off great and many/most aspects continued. Staff was more than friendly, the room was marvelous (though three floors up got tiring as the week progressed). The Palm's buffet food was...well....buffet food (if you know what I mean). But they did offer a wide variety. Breakfast stood out as the preferred meal there for me. The other restaurants were fairly good. Service was usually good, but somewhat inconsistent as far as the speed at which things occurred. In-room dining (pre-breakfast) was limited, but hit the spot after a good nights sleep. The beach was to die for...white sand, smooth, almost shell-free with just a slight swell to deal with. Wonderful. The high-tide line established a "protected line" above which the constant stream of local hawkers and musicians would not cross (thanks to onsite security 24/7). My wife liked the "musicians" but I preferred the quiet and peaceful beach. When attempting to walk the beach at night for a romantic saunter under the stars, security advised against that, which was a big bummer. Ample activities to do were included. However, off-campus activities were overpriced (mainly for the transportation). Drinks poured freely. Would we go back again? Yes, especially if Jamaica was the only option. However, I'd like to visit a few other Caribbean options first. Highly recommended for sure, but not quite five stars.

Beautiful resort. The beach was clean and well maintained. There were plenty of chairs for everyone without being crowded. They have foam chair covers that also float so we were able to take those out to the water. The water was crystal clear and warm. Very little sea swell - could stand in the water easily. Saw rays, starfish, small fish. The rooms were clean and comfortable. They have screens with wooden shutters so it got a little hot during the day but cooled down at night. We stayed on the 2nd floor and had a great view. The food was very good. Lots of variety. With 6 places, we always found something to eat. The guys were disappointed that there wasn't a jerk shack on the beach. The only negative comment was the check in process wasn't very good. We didn't get our room until after 5pm even tho check in is 3p. They did give us resort credit for the wait.
