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!

Our stay at Couples Tower was everything we hoped for. The resort was private and not crowded. The beach was beautiful and footsteps away. The food was delicious! The staff was friendly and always asking how your day was going. We did not have to travel far to the excursions and they were breathtaking. It truly was the perfect vacation!

Couples never disappoints

This was our 3rd trip to Couples, 2nd to this location. Smaller resort so not always crowded. Can always find a beach or pool chair. The service is great. The food is better here than any other, even higher priced, all-inclusive resorts that we have visited. They have lots of fun rum drinks but a drink list at the bar would be nice to help choose. Stayed in a premium ocean view. The rooms are a bit bare, they could use some TLC. A dresser for clothes would be nice. It did have a large closet with some shelves. Great location to local attractions. Free snorkeling and scuba. Dunns River included. Free shuttle to local shopping area.

Not What it Used to Be

Let me preface my review with the fact that this was our 3rd time to Couples Tower Isle (CTI), and 5th time at Couples (previously stayed at Couples Swept Away). My last 2 reviews of CTI were excellent, but this time did not meet our expectations. It had been 7 years since our last visit to CTI and things have really gone down hill. For first timers they won't have a measuring stick but for repeaters like us we could absolutely see the difference. We paid extra for a Deluxe Ocean View room (pics attached) and let me tell you the room was very tired, damaged and somewhat dirty. I would recommend asking to see your room before accepting it. I will break down some of the things that we found to be unsatisfactory below: Deluxe Ocean View Room: Yes the view is fantastic, but that is where the Deluxe ends. Don't get me wrong, the housekeeping staff did a wonderful job and were always kind and helpful. The room, however was not looking very good. Upon initially arriving (late at night) when we entered our room my husband said "wow, things are looking a little tired". We left it at that. However, as our holiday progressed our opinion began to change. We were told 2.5 days prior to our departure that we had to be moved due to roof construction that was taking place in our block (Block 4, we were in room 4511). I was not pleased about having to pack up our things and move given we only had a couple days left. I also questioned why we were put into our room to begin with if there was planned construction to take place. I asked why they wouldn't have moved us halfway through our holiday to be less disruptive. Needless to say we were moved. We were put into a Premiere Ocean View room (room 3212) and this is when we realized how run down our original room really was in comparison. Room 3212 wasn't nearly has run down and tired. We also looked at our friends room (3209, Deluxe Garden View) and their was much nicer than the Deluxe Ocean View we had paid a premium for. Service: This is what surprised me the most. Although the majority of the staff are very friendly and kind, it is always the few that are rude that really stick with you. The ladies at the Concierge Desk were unhelpful, rude and arrogant. The front desk staff were very similar in their attitude. The Patio Bar staff (all but for one gem) were rude and wouldn't make eye contact or acknowledge you. We truly felt like we were bothering people. My husband and I treat everyone with respect and kindness regardless of their role/position so to be treated like this in return was unbelievable. This is supposed to be a 5 star luxury resort but it truly fell short. Activities Staff: We visited the Activity Staff office part way into our visit to see if there would be a visiting spinning and/or yoga instructor and were told "we won't know until Sunday". The following week I noticed that a Yoga class was scheduled for 4:00 p.m. so I showed up and waited for 18 minutes. Another guest was waiting with me and decided to hunt down an activities staff member to find out what was happening. Turns out they made a mistake. No Yoga instructor was on site, but there would be a spinning instructor doing a class at 5:00 p.m. When my husband and I showed up the next morning for the 9:00 a.m. spinning class the instructor was elated that someone actually showed up. I told her I had asked if there would be an instructor the week prior and was told "we won't know until Sunday". She was shocked as she said she was booked a year in advance and they were fully aware of her pending arrival. Scuba: Although after a few dives in the Team seemed to warm up a little, our initial impression was that we were bothering them. When we initially showed our certification cards to sign up we handed our Nitrox Cards and the fellow pushed them back and rudely said "I don't need these". How about replying with "sorry, we don't offer Nitrox" and throw in a smile? Anyway, the morning dive was supposed to be a deep dive (AOW certified divers) but more often than not OW divers and newbies were included so it really took away from the experience as divers struggled with buoyancy, getting their gear sorted, etc. They also always ran behind. Often we would help other divers get sorted so we could just get going and stop wasting precious vacation time standing around waiting for them to get organized. Trading Places: We took advantage of this opportunity to visit Couples Sans Souci. Initially my husband asked the Concierge at CTI to ensure we could have a tour of the property and a room at CSS and was told "just organize it when you get there". My husband said "no, please call over and organize it in advance for us". She wasn't pleased but did as we kindly requested. CSS was eye opening. The staff were unbelievably kind and friendly and nothing was too much for them. We were lying by the pool while the dive team was doing a demo in the pool for new Divers. We had a chance to chat with the instructor and they really seemed to have things well organized. The rooms at CSS are amazing and updated. If we ever return to Couples, CSS will be our choice. Food: Patio Buffet where we ate breakfast and lunch was good. The staff serving coffee and taking your dishes away are amazing and friendly. The female manager, however, was very rude. They also need to get themselves better organized to open at the time stated. They do this 365 days of the year so there is no excuse to not have themselves organized in a timely manner. General Manager: Although he was very kind in ensuring our stay was going well and helping to sort out issues with the Concierge staff, I did send him a personal email upon my return home to provide my feedback, I have not heard a word. I have since escalated our issues to my travel agent who is working with Couples Corporate now. I have little confidence that anything will be done to rectify the issues we encountered but did feel it necessary to provide honest feedback. All of my reviews are honest. I am a humble individual and give praise where praise is due. All in all, I would not recommend CTI until they: renovate, educate their forward facing staff on appropriate customer service, and deal with their communication and organizational skills.

Couples Tower Isle "A True Hidden Gem"

I will have to say that my entire family (Group of 7) was a little skeptical that this little resort had such great reviews!! We had to visit to find out and boy were we so happy that we did!! We have vacationed to many all-inclusive resorts over the years, the past 7 years in a row we have gone as a family with as many as 14 total people. Many resorts we visited were huge and run over with people. If you are looking for a place that makes you feel like family, not too crowded, quite nostalgic, not the ordinary, and full of some happy people, then Couple Tower Isle is the place. The location is absolutely awesome, nestled in a quiet cove with its own private beach that can't be accessed by any outsiders! The staff was absolutely amazing and so positive and happy to accommodate your every need!! From the minute we set foot on the property, we were taken care of....Jermaine greeted us with a big smile and showed us around and helped us to our room to go over every detail so that we could enjoy our stay...he never forgot our name!! The real all-inclusive, all inclusive was the best ever!! Put your money away, there are excursions that are FREE....yes you heard it FREE! Dunn's River Falls, Catamaran Cruise, Glass Bottom Boat Trip, Shopping Trips, Margaritaville, Snorkeling, Diving, Hobie Cat Sailing, Kayaking, Paddle Boards, Hydro Bikes, Skiing, Wakeboarding, Golf & Tennis etc!!!! Water Sports Staff was amazing!! Shout out to Anifee, Cee Jay, Kemoy!! There were many activities day and night to keep you busy, one of our favorites was tie-dying t-shirts!! Shout out to the girls, Anna-Kay, Tenille & Keran!! The food was amazing, all the wait staff were superb!! Shout out to Danville & Fidel!! There was something for everyone!! Bayside was beautiful sitting out over the water and awesome Asian food. Eight Rivers was a dining experience, food was excellent. The Veranda was very awesome, one of our favorites. The Patio we ate everyday for breakfast and most lunches since in was a buffet, a little different stuff for everyone. The Pool Side Grill had very yummy burger and onion rings!! The two buffets that were on the beach were amazing, the staff made the set-up so beautiful and once again the food was awesome! The desserts were amazing too!! Of course, we loved the soft-serve ice cream in the Pool Side Grill too!! We really loved that the staff knew us by name everywhere we went!! We loved that we could go find our same spot everyday by the pool bar and never had to stress that we would not find chairs. The buildings were well maintained as well as the grounds. Our room was garden-view but we did not spend much time there, however i may like an ocean view when we return. And yes, this is one resort that we will visit again!!

We came here 7yrs ago and have visited Couples on 5 previous times BUT VERY DISAPPOINTED The resort is looking very tired and the staff are down right rude. The food is average well cooked but limited variety, we booked a deluxe garden he is this is our view 2 trees and the hotel entrance. If you want a great view and modern room you need to book the premium ocean view room number 3012 is good but add the upgrade to your cost and boy does it go up and quite frankly not worth the money, trust me it's very overpriced even though the views are good. As English people ( not many of us) they don't seem to care what you think. After a 10hr flight and almost £6000 I expected more (as we had in the past) we did compare this to our visit last year to Grand Bahia Principle Akamel and we could have gone there twice for the price if this and this and 100% better. Just waiting to leave for home now so good luck travellers hope this helps 😎

Can this resort get any better?!

Our fourth visit, and so far, the best. The staff continue to be the reason we come back, and will do so again next year. Everyone is helpful, friendly and professional. The food continues to be excellent, watersports are varied, entertainment by far the best of any hotel we've ever visited. Yes, the beach may not be Negril, but it's private. Rooms are clean and have character, but don't expect 5 star corporate type accommodations, these are, in our view, much more personal. Great views from the balconies on the beach side. Well done to all at CTI.
