THE honeymoon we were hoping for!
HUNTER N.
Jan 21 2019
Our vacation was nothing short of phenomenal. From the very first step we took on the resort we knew that we were going to love it and have a hard time leaving and boy were we right! It was amazing to be greeted in such a fashion. Our favorite thing about the whole stay was the hotel staff 100%! Everyone was always beyond friendly and treated us like family from the very start. Many workers knew our names, where we were from and that we were there for our honeymoon by the end of the first day and we thought that was awesome! The food options were amazing but Eight Rivers and the Veranda were our favorites. We loved coming back to our room after a long day in the sun because we would always have fresh towels and our bed freshly made. Room service, especially breakfast in the morning, was exceptional! We really enjoyed the size of the resort and how they have so many options to keep us entertained and/or relaxed. An event that really stood out to us was the buffet on the beach because it was so unique and fun! I could write a review four pages long but I am sure you all hear the same amazing things about this resort so I will leave it here. We will be back!!

Check in was subpar - had to wait until whole group checked in before we could get key to room - it would have taken about 30 seconds for her to tell us info that was shared with group arriving. Food - breakfast and lunch was ok - dinner every night was not good. Only a couple of staff members were friendly. Most were to busy talking to each other than waiting or talking to us. Couples return dinner - what a joke - we had to entertain the staff - they never introduced themselves to us - it was like pulling teeth to get them to talk to us. and you could tell they didn't want to be there. No security at hotel - 3AM - 8 AM group was at pool talking loud and making noise - I have no problem with people swimming that late - but someone should have told them to keep it down. Reported to hotel staff the next day - I was told there was no security and I should have hollered down to them to be quiet - My husbands dinners were good each night - mine not so much - if finally got to be a joke - I just went and had a cookie after dinner instead of having a healthy meal. Fruit - was not good. I have stayed at Couples on Negril and it was excellent - with both food and staff - I will say that RJ and Terri were excellent and there was a new staff person - didn't get her name who was a sweetheart. FYI - we were told to meet our Apple Vacation person at 1:00 on day after we arrived to set up any trips we wanted to take - Guess what - no one was there so we did not schedule a trip we had wanted to do. For maid service - they did a great job - but for glasses for drinks I was told that I would have to call down to main desk to get them sent up - this should be part of servicing the room - I had to take glasses from the bar downstairs so that we could make a drink. Really enjoyed the room service in the morning when we were able to order coffee/breakfast and have in room. The staff for this part was very nice. I feel like this hotel is not being managed very well and someone needs to sit the staff down and go back over how to treat guest. If we had been able to give tips I think it would have made the staff be friendlier - but that shouldn't have to happen.

Spectacular 2nd Anniversary Get-Away

My 2nd Anniversary Get-Away was absolutely wonderful. The resort accommodations were great. It was not newly renovated, but it was clean and the housekeeping staff always made sure you had exactly what you needed in your room. Upon our arrival after a long travel, there was a fruit/cheese tray was available in our room upon arrival. To sum it all up, I would definite go back and would recommend to friends and family. This all inclusive vacation was the BOMB!!

The Couples Tower Isle resort is a stand out from the staff to the resort it self. We have stayed at others places and by far the way the staff treats you was exceptional. We are making a return trip to the awesome resort.

Our overall experience was very good. The a/c didn't work the greatest in the first room, but we did do a room change . The pool at the swim up bar is in need of repairs, but it sounds like they are already doing this. Food quality was excellent, always try the soup it won't disappoint. The staff there are not enough words to describe how well they treat you. From the grounds keepers to the managers they always go out of their way to stop and speak to you. It has been 12 years since our last visit to Couples Tower Isle and I can say it was great to be home. It is very nice to go to an all inclusive and that is exactly what you get. No extra tipping is expected like at a lot of all inclusive resorts. If you would like a nice, relaxing vacation check out Couples they will not disappoint.

My husband and I were married here at Couples Tower in Ocho Rios in February of 2017. Apples ratings were spot on. The atmosphere here was SUPER mellow, the service and staff were super friendly. I did feel a little younger on the crowd at 35 years old. But it didn't matter, we enjoyed our time!

We enjoyed our stay. The staff were very friendly. Enjoyed the inclusive water sports and excursions. We were a little disappointed by the beach. It was very small and could not walk on it. Also, not a lot of restaurant choices at this resort.

Love this resort it's not too big so you're not tripping over other guests yet it's small enough to provide intimacy & romance. The food is delicious & the staff are so friendly, beautiful views & grounds. This was our 2nd trip to this resort & we will definitely return, I love the dive staff & actually became PADI certified this time. Can't wait to return again!

A Beautiful resort
L0riandmike, Dartmouth, Canada
Sun Feb 17 07:49:22 EST 2019
This is our first stay at a Couples resort, but have been to Jamaica several times. We thought it was beautiful and well taken care of. The ocean views were absolutely breathtaking and peaceful, especially the from our room. We also loved the extra special touches, such as having choices to stock your mini fridge every day and having coffee and croissants while watching the sunrise. We like stronger coffee, so the staff went out of their was to give us espresso shots. The resort also doesn't use bottled water, you use a refillable water carafe and can get refill it in the hallway. They are making an effort to reduce plastic and also by using paper straws. They staff were 99% friendly and attentive. Our favorite restaurant was The Veranda. The Eight Rivers was fancy but our waiter was unfriendly, which kind of ruined it for me. The food was always good throughout the resort, especially the fish!The veggie bar has amazing sweet potatoe chips with dip. We also enjoyed the nachos and soft serve icecream.My new favorite food is snapper, so good everytime!!! We are afternoon coffee drinkers, so we found it weird that it was hard to find a good cappuccino. We found out that Jamaicans generally don't drink it as much as other counties in the afternoon. I found the jerk chicken dry because the jerk sauce was too spicy for me to use. They should have a more mild version available. The beach was nice and we always could find lounge chairs, which were in good shape and so comfortable with a removable floatation device. The sand was gorgeous, wifi always available and the red flags worked great when you wanted a drink. The water sports equipment was in good shape, first come first served that day, even though it is written that you need to book a day ahead, very confusing. It was hard to find a chair at the pool with the swim up bar, but that was ok because we are mostly beach people. The entertainment was also great and very professional. The steel drums bands were both amazing, the singers, saxophonist and magician was a lot of fun! We also liked movie night on the beach and went to one rooftop Martini night,which was ok, just poorly attended unfortunately. It would have been nice to have a small band or singer for entertainment up there. The disco was a lot of fun, well appointed and good music. Lots of people were there having fun the night we went. The piano was a bit of a disappointment. The same people, same songs etc. every night, not enough song books. The damp carpet smell was awful, as smells can really bug me. We really liked this resort, no resort is perfect for everyone, but it came very close for us and probably would go back another time.

Couples Tower Isle was amazing , we were a little unsure having never had an all inclusive holiday , having just returned our challenge now will be finding something to beat it . Amazing place , great facilities , excellent choice of restaurants and everyone was incredibly friendly really making sure you had a fantastic time . Water sport for all levels and well supervised , snorkelled several times and a different place each time . The room was ample size and well maintained with a Wonderfull view of the ocean . Everyone we spoke to spoke very highly of the resort and a number of people had stayed with others in the same group on the island with as good feedback . trips to the falls and others were included as well as the water-sports and organised well What made it for us was the fantastic team working in the resort they you feel welcome settled and at home brilliant service

Once again a great experience

We were here for just a day in that we were on a cruise ship and had visited Couples twice earlier. The staff was friendly, but it was disappointing to find the day pass more expensive than what they had quoted me when I had contacted them earlier, to no avail we had a great time on the nude island and the food was great as always. Nice day trip.

Such a great escape!

Loved it all. The water sports options were the highlight of my stay, especially that Catamaran cruise (great crew!) Food was abundant, varying options. Drinks always available...Room service, spa, gift shop all on point.

Disappointing hotel
Ian_Newport, Newport, United Kingdom
Fri Feb 15 04:05:30 EST 2019
We picked Couples Tower Isle as the description in the TUI brochure sounded very appealing. We liked the idea of a smaller hotel with a more personal and attentive service. It was more (50%) than we would have normally paid but decided to treat ourselves this year. The hotels description boasts that it was the destination for movie stars in the 1950’s. This was obviously the hotels prime time and by looking at the hotel now very little has changed. The rooms and hotel facilities are looking very tired. Regular maintenance does not appear to be high on the priority list. The hotel boasted a 5 star status but would find it difficult to rate it as a three star. The service from the waiting staff in the restaurant was a very hit and miss affair. If you managed to be directed to an area with good staff everything was fine. Water glasses filled promptly and drink orders taken. More often than not we ended up waiting for water and then try to catch the attention of a member of staff who were more concerned with catching up on gossip with their fellow staff members. Frequently we had finished our main course before our drinks arrived. Once the drinks arrived, if we did manage to finish them before we had done eating, getting a refill was almost impossible. If you left an empty glass on the table it was cleared away rather than refilled. It was almost as if the drink was being rationed. There was no drink service offered around the pool area so had to walk to and from the single bar and queue for drinks. There was a flag system in operation on the beach but this did not extend to the pool area. The main bar was adjacent to the pool and the Buffett restaurant. It had very little in the way of seating. A dozen bar stools and a bench type seat along the rear wall. If you wanted a drink before dinner there was no where to sit in comfort and enjoy your drink. There was a piano bar that opened in the evening which had limited comfortable seating but this was in an internal room in the building with the only windows opening out on to a corridor. It was a shame to go all that way to be stuck inside where you couldn’t see anything. Again there was no table service and all drinks had to be ordered at the bar. The food in the A la cart restaurants was to a high standard and came out hot. Unfortunately the same can not be said for the buffet restaurant. There was a reasonable variety of food but the ability to keep it hot appears to allude them most of the time. Warm food on a cold plate often resulted to a tepid meal by the time it got back to the table. This was even more evident at the Saturday night grand buffet where tables were moved out around the pool area creating a longer walk back through areas of closely packed tables places around the edge of the pool. The beach barbecue is also another disappointment as once again the food is cold by the time you get back to the table. On this occasion it was made more entertaining by trying to eat from a table at a 30 degree angle on the sloping beach while trying to stop the chair from sinking in the sand. During both these events all other restaurants are closed so there is no choice other than to attend. The hotel grounds are very close to the road. When sat by the pool lorry’s, cars and motorcycles can be heard racing past. I kept thinking we were being buzzed by low flying aircraft but it turned out to be trucks passing by. Looking at the other reviews on this site I am curious how it gets so many favourable reviews. I can’t believe these people went to the same hotel. In our group of travellers everyone I spoke to had the same complaints so I’m sure it isn’t just me.
