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 Café 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.

30 YEAR ANNIVERSARY DREAM COME TRUE!
jamie50, Louisville
Thu May 19 04:59:29 EDT 2016
We have been to Jamaica 20 times! My husband asked me to marry him 30 years ago in Jamaica and promised we would go back every five years. We have stayed at many resorts in different areas and some we have gone back to several times. Swept Away was my dream resort for many years and it did not disappoint. The only disappointment was we should have come here years ago!! We stayed in a Garden Verandah Suite. They do warn you that there is road noise in these rooms. There is early morning traffic around 7:00 a.m. which did wake me up occasionally, but I generally am up at 6:00 a.m. and on my way to the beach. Our verandah was huge and so inviting with comfortable furniture! Our room also was huge and beautifully old world island style. Our room and service was exceptional. The refrigerator was properly stocked every day with what we wanted with their handy little order form. My favorite restaurant was Feathers and we ate there twice. We also ate dinner at Patois Patio and also several breakfasts! I loved the Martini Bar and the swinging chairs and round rolling chairs nearby! We hung out there one evening for quite some time. We loved all the things included at Swept Away that you have to pay for at other resorts. My only complaint is a better way to book water and boat activities rather than getting in line at the Water Sports Hut 30 minutes before they open to assure you get a reservation. Our Anniversary Dinner on the beach with our sons and their wives was just beautiful and worth the extra price! It was also Mother's Day and my son gave me a spa treatment and I picked the Swedish Massage! It was wonderful and relaxing! We will definitely be back! Also, the beach is the most beautiful beach in Jamaica! More>

Easy breezy getaway!

Had a great time at Couples Swept away. Stayed 4 nights in the Attrium suite. There is NO TV in the room, so be sure your want to really connect with your partner. We were celebrating our 7th wedding anniversary so it was great. Also VERY tropical. ..bugs n all. At night you will be sung to by the birds, bugs and anything else that is on the rain forest. And you cannot turn down the volume! The food was great and service for the most part was good..except at the bars..they were very distant and not friendly. The resort is very casual and laid back. If you have mobility issues..be sure to get room on lower level since there are no elevators. Also ..be sure to pay extra for the Mobay VIP express..it makes all the difference when going into the country at the airport. You actually move to the front of the massive immigration and custom line once you get to Jamaica. .well worth the extra $50...i would not hesitate if we go back. We tried every restaurant and they were all good. Basically great resort if you want that true island feeling... not very updated and no real fancy decorations either. But it is truely a beautiful 7 mile beach resort. Long ride from montego bay to resort on tight bus...suttle. 4 nights was long enough... More>

Paradise Found!!! Love it!!!

Just returned from a 7 day stay 5/7/16-5/14/16 with two other couples, and let me tell you that anyone that complains about this resort, must not have done their research, or expected something totally different. From reading a ton of reviews on this site ahead of time to reviewing the Couples website itself, I knew exactly what to expect - and let me tell you - those expectations were overly exceeded. All 6 of us thought that this resort was truly amazing and we all had the best time of our lives. We had an atrium suite in building 26, room 2225 (second floor) overlooking a beautiful courtyard. The Verandah was huge and we loved our location - only about a 30 second walk to the beach. We had good housekeeping and the bottles of liquor that I requested in my pre-check in were delivered later that same day (signed up for the Romance Rewards ahead of time and did this about a week in advance). By the way, the check in process was fine - and our room wasn't ready until 4:00, so we just changed and headed to the beach. I think we picked a great time of the year to go also. A worker told us that the resort was only at about 74% capacity. That left a lot of options for when we were picking out our loungers on the beach and making dinner reservations. Restaurants - We all thought that the food was SO GOOD everywhere we ate. From the Cabana grill, to Patois, Sea Grapes, The Palms, Lemongrass (our favorite), to Feathers (nice experience). The Cabana grill is an outside restaurant, right next to one of the pools, and my favorites here were the beef patties, jerk burger and fish sandwich. Sea Grapes has amazing fish tacos (order two!), and sweet potato chips with a hummus and jalapeno dip - yum! The buffet at the Palms was always very good, with an egg/omelette station, french toast, bacon, sausage, potatoes, fruit, etc. It even had a bloody mary/mimosa bar. We ate at Lemongrass twice, and the first time I had the chicken pad thai, which was very good, and the second time I had the cashew chicken, which was even better. The appetizer platter for two and California rolls were exceptional. Let me say that the atmosphere at Lemongrass, just puts it over the top for us. Feathers had some delicious dishes also (hubby had lamb chops (4), which were really good, and I had the beef tenderloin). It is the only air conditioned restaurant, with a bar inside that you can have a drink at, if you get there early, which was also nice. We ate at Patois once for dinner, and all of our dinners there were delicious. One tip: try as many soups as possible, if you are a soup lover like me - they all were great. If I have to give one negative (and this would be the ONLY negative), it would be about the onion rings at the Cabana grill - there isn't an onion even inside of it - maybe onion powder/flakes??? IDK, but the fries and nacho's made up for them :-) Excursions - Glass bottom boat was fun and so was the snorkeling trip, but both are very crowded and you have to be in line at the water sports shack the morning before you want to do them by 7:45, or the lists will fill up. Since there were 6 of us, we decided to go a little extra mile, by booking the private sunset boat trip that they offer for $50 per person, instead of taking the overly crowded catamaran cruise. I am so glad that we did this - it was SO worth it! There were 3 guys from the water sports crew on the boat with us, and we took out their 46 foot double decker boat around both bays - long bay and bloody bay. They even let us stop and snorkel, which was so nice not to be out there with 20 other people.. We saw a HUGE stingray, a baby stingray, and one of the guys swam down and brought up a sea urchin for us to hold. We had so much fun! They brought a cooler for us to put drinks in, and we also brought some food with us. They played music that got us all dancing and we drove to the caves and we also swam in the caves with them. We also went to Rick's Cafe for a bit and just hung out on the boat and watched the divers. If you can - I highly recommend doing this private tour! Shot out to Andy, Marvin and Devan - you guys rock! The Entertainment crew deserves to also be mentioned here - They really made our experience so much fun at night - at the beach party, casino night, at the Palms, etc. We LOVED Jameal, Adam, and Tara-Lee (I'm hoping I have the names correct). They really are so much fun to be around :-) They are now friends that we can't wait to come back to see, hopefully sooner that later! The beach is obviously the reason why we chose this resort, and it is something that I will never forget. The beach vendors aren't even bothersome - I thought some of them were actually pretty enjoyable. Who complains about being sung to on a beach in Jamaica anyway!??? That is part of the whole experience, imo. For those trying to push "other" items, just say no thank you, and they leave you be. No worries Mon! The beach is raked every day, and the grounds are gorgeous! We love the tropical feel walking around the property. Overall, we can't wait to return home and enjoy this beach, resort, drinks, food, and friends. Don't let the negative reviews scare you. This was our first visit here, and I wasn't sure what to think after reading some of those reviews prior to our arrival and had to just see for myself. So glad I did! I just kept saying "how can people say bad things about this place" all week :-) It was awesome! More>

A dream vacation!

My husband and I took a much needed vacation alone to Couples Swept Away. We have absolutely no complaints. We stayed in an atrium room and it was incredible. The beach was a slice of heaven. Always food available and it was fresh and delicious. Looking forward to our next visit! More>

Benefits of location let down by overall disappointing experience

Yes, we wanted a hotel on the famous beach. We wanted a room we could walk out of onto the beach. The beach didn't let us down, but the hotel did. First the positives - the Thai restaurant was good (you have to book) and the service excellent. Indeed the service across the whole hotel is good, apart from check in... The arrival experience was appalling. Hundreds of suitcases piled up at the entrance (this was a daily occurrence) as the day's leavers are shunted out and the next load of guests arrive. Service at check in was terrible, two staff, tens of arrivals all jostling for a seat and praying their room is ready. Ours wasn't, we waited three hours until 5pm. Staff didn't even appear to know how to use the check in system. The room was poor. Basic furnishings and critically no bath (only three rooms have a bath apparently). Drinks in the room needed to be ordered, ours finally arrived after two complaints and three days later! The terrace had one very uncomfortable bench and one seat, no sun lounger. The first restaurant we encountered was one of the worst we ate at in Jamaica (Cabana Grill) dirty, plastic seats, food on the floor etc. The second (The Palms) was much better - breakfast was okay, lunch and dinner buffets plentiful but bland. I had to ask for chilli sauce one day, they didn't have any!! Bland is a good description of this heavily American targeted hotel. That's if you are happy to ignore loud holidaymakers and a preponderance of tattoos. Negril is full of great hotels on its beach, you don't need to stay at this one. More>
