We did not get the room we were told we would be assigned. It was to be in the main part of the resort. We had to complain to get the room we paid for. We also did dinner on the beach. It lasted over 2 hours and we took our deserts to our room to eat. A horrible experience.

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!!

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.

amazing!! we had a spa villa which was so worth the extra $ for our private heated pool and privacy! The only room for improvement in the villa is that you are located right on the road and you can hear traffic with people honking all hours of the day. The spa was top notch and worth every penny of the upgrade!! If they could just pick that spa villa up and place it ocean front I would pay the extra premium!

Amazing Stay!

Our first visit to Couples tower Isles meet and exceeded all of our expectations! To be honest the resort isn’t anything amazing but it is staff and service that makes the experience unbelievable. I will go through the things we liked about the resort and some of the staff that left impressions on us. Rooms When I read reviews on this hotel it is where the reviews were the worst. First of all, the rooms are far from new but I wouldn't call them dated. More boutique with lots of character. This hotel is one of the first all-inclusive hotels in the Caribbean so lots of history that you don't want to destroy with making an old hotel modern. I also think they are trying to go for the beach feel instead of a modern look. We managed to stay in two different rooms on our first visit to CTI. First night we got upgraded to a One Bedroom Ocean Suite as our room wasn't ready. The location of the room is on the main floor and looking right at the island. These rooms are by far the closest to the ocean. Amazing views! Our room was a Premier Ocean on the 2nd floor of the building in front the pool with the fountain. We had a great ocean, fountain and main pool views. We liked the set-up of the bathroom better and the deck was bigger in the P.O. room. The Bed was much more comfortable in the Suite, it had a topper. The bed was really the only complaint we had about our room, it was very firm and uncomfortable. If they would just add a topper it would be fine. Food Was amazing! All the restaurants were great and the food was better. Buffet always seemed to have a different theme and mix in the beach party nights and Gala night you wouldn't think you were eating from the buffet as much as you are. Most resorts I find I get bored of the buffet and the same old thing every time. Eight Rivers is located in the main building and is unlike any other restaurant in the hotel. With no ocean views and being the most refined restaurant at the resort it is like you left the property and went to the big city for dinner. We ate there twice in the week that we were there and found the food and service great each time. I’d like to give Denville some props here as he was an exceptional server both times and after our first encounter he went out of his way to say hi and give me a pound. Didn’t matter if it was at breakfast or walking down the hall he came over and said hi. It is also the only restaurant that has a dress code. You need to make a reservation to eat here. I’d suggest you make reservations early to get in and try it. It is usually very busy. Bayside is located right on the ocean, very romantic and picturesque. Food is Asian cuisine and seafood. The first time we ate here it was lobster night it was amazing. Giovanni was our server there as he was great. You need to make a reservation here as well. Verandah is located in the main building right across from Eight Rivers has great ocean views. It is first come first serve and usually very busy so sometimes there is a line. Food was good the one time we were there. Pool Grill is neat little spot by the pool with the fountain. Serves ice-cream, nachos, jerk chicken, and burgers. Great spot with great service. Veggie bar is also listed as a restaurant. They have a few snacks and any shake or smoothie you can dream up. Nicely located on the beach. Bars Pool Bar is nice great location looking out at the island. Main bar across from the buffet is like the heartbeat of the resort. Overlooking the beach and adjacent to the main pool you see pretty much everything happening from this bar. Piano bar is neat and historic, lots of pics of famous guest and a fun way to end the night with karaoke type sing along that happens most nights there. There is a club down by the beach but we never attended. There is also a martini night on the roof a few times per week and it has amazing views and a fun vibe. Melesia seemed to work at all the bars and was a senior bartender. She’s very knowledgeable and knows how to keep the party going and to make sure everyone is having a good time. All in all the resort exceeded all of our expectations. It reminds be a lot of Disneyworld/land, but not like you would think. Both Disney’s are old, Space Mountain, haunted house, Jungle Cruise, and more have been there forever. Similar to this resort. But people come back over and over again because they know what they are going to get. Yes I know there has been additions to Disney over the years, just like there has been reno’s at tower Isle. But the real reason people come back is the experience. The way the staff makes you feel. I’ve never experienced service like that and I’ve stayed at other beautiful resorts like Sandals & Secrets. Maybe there was a little more to the picture in the Piano Bar of Abe Issa (founder of Couples Resorts) and Walt Disney. There is a reason guests come back time and time again unlike any other place I’ve been. We will be returning to Tower Isle as well. Hope this is helpful and sorry about being so long winded. Usually not the case. lol

First trip to Jamaica

My husband I and our good friends chose Couples Tower Island after their daughter spent her honeymoon there 2 years ago. The resort was absolutely beautiful. We stayed in a Superior Ocean Room. Our room was nice however, we had a gorgeous private balcony that over looked the ocean to the north (building 5). During our stay the day time temperatures were in the low 80s (degrees) so at night we left the balcony doors open and could hear the waves crashing. Incredible. We dined at the Eight Rivers and the Bayside. Both were top notch. We highly recommend them. The staff were friendly and courteous, but our favorite was Cowayne Benjamin. He was attentive, polite and very entertaining. Thanks Benjamin!! Room service for an early morning pre-workout breakfast, was very prompt and the server very courteous. We also had requested in-room bar service and that was also was addressed very quickly. This was all our first trip to Jamaica and can’t wait to return. We took one excursion during our stay to Dunns River Falls. I would highly recommend it. Bring Water shoes!! You will need them. It was a good work out climbing the falls. The only reason I gave a 4 for the location was that it was a 1 ½ hour drive from the Montego Bay airport. However, our driver Danny that took us back to the airport on our last day was sooo funny. FYI, he said we were to say he was “hilarious” (funny means odd to the Jamaicans). He was quite the tour guide. He made the trip back to the airport a lot quicker and enjoyable. We had some good laughs on that car ride! I can’t wait to go back to Jamaica!

Great Resort worthy of multiple trips!

Couples has many dining choices. All very tasty and great quality. Top shelf Liqueur. Outstanding Staff that is second to none. WiFi coverage and speed could stand some improvement. Many people we met were on the 5 or 6th visit. Says a lot about a resort. It was our second visit to CTI.

Wow...speechless!

What an absolutely beautiful, clean, chilled relaxing place...literally the meaning of heaven/paradise! I have tried so hard to find fault with this place and I can’t. ALL of the staff are helpful and friendly, from domestics right up to senior positions. It’s set in the most beautiful botanical grounds at the front and a beautiful private beach at the back. The food is AMAZING and always varied, I don’t think we’ve eaten the same thing twice. The cleanliness is bordering on OCD it’s that clean in every area and the staff are all so clean and smart too. There are no words that would praise this place enough. If you’re after a chilled relaxing holiday with the option of being busy then look no further, everyone of your needs are met with no trouble at all. We are still here now, it’s our last day of our holiday and we are already looking at when we can come back. A massive massive thank you to EVERYBODY that works here for making our much needed holiday so special. We also noticed that all the staff are happy in their work, always smiling and singing as they go about their jobs....pure heaven! One love to all from Danny & Gail, Manchester, England ❤️
