Location: On the beach, 15 minutes from Negril, 60 minutes from the airport.
We went in 2015 - it was June - I can't seem to pick June from the drop-down but I want to state the accurate time of year. It was a really nice hotel, beautiful grounds and rooms. I ended up not being too keen on Jamaica as a whole because you can't really leave the resort - I mean the surrounding area is not safe. There's too much poverty on the island so you have to stay on the resort which made me feel a bit claustrophobic...but that's my issue not the resort's! Beach is beautiful and the water is heavenly...absolutely like bath water. I felt again a bit claustrophobic because the beach is roped off so you feel like the expanse of the ocean is sort of cut off from you...and the beach is in more of a bay-like area...so you don't have a long wide open stretch to walk down...you can walk down to the RIU down the way, but you get the feeling with the security folks on the beach and things that you're really not supposed to.That was my other issue - the constant hawking of wares by vendors on the beach...not very peaceful. Also getting there from the airport took 2 hours by bus! And the airport is a zoo.All in all it's a beautiful resort, and the staff are great...just not really my cup of tea.
This was our 7th trip to a Couples Resort, but our first time to Couples Negril. I always though CSA would be our "home" forever, but CN definitely changed my mind.Our request for early check-in was accommodated so easily by Rasheen at the front desk. He said our room would be ready in an hour and sent us off to check out the resort. We went to the bathroom and slipped on a swimsuit and off we went!From the moment you arrive here, it is paradise. The lobby really sets the stage for all you're about to experience. Our beachfront room (not suite) was amazing: Caribbean rustic with boutique touches. The bathroom was modern and perfectly functional for the two of us. Yes, it's true, none of the patios/balconies FACE the beach, but it was a stunning side view sitting on our ground-floor patio. Access to our room was so easy if we needed anything during the day and we never felt our belongings were not secure leaving the sliding door unlocked (valuables in the safe, of course).We were there during Hurricane Matthew and, while the hurricane went mainly east of us, the water was a little choppy for a few days. The watersports staff was so good about keeping us informed about when activities would be available and worked so hard preparing for possible severe weather. We'd like to give a shout out to England and Jay. Thanks for being just awesome.Restaurants: We never had a single bad meal. As a matter-of-fact, there were several nights I had to remind myself not to over-eat or I'd be miserable. No complaints about any of the restaurant options or food, but I'd say Heliconia was my favorite. The outdoor ambiance was lovely. Otaheite is a close second with it's romantic seating and upper-crust vibe. Breakfast was fantastic every single morning. Room service coffee starts the day of right and the Cassava buffet offers so many options there's no way you could get bored. Here we'd like to thank Godfrey (Oteheite), Valencia (Heliconia/Lychee), and Youon (Cassava/Heliconia) for giving us fabulous dining experiences. We'd also like to thank Shantal, Sasheem, and Samantha for consistently whipping up to best omelets EVER!! You all go above and beyond.Now for the beach...oh, the beach! Beautiful turquoise water with amazing visibility. Paddle boarding the morning could not have been more tranquil. White, soft sand with an abundance of both shady and sunny areas (no palapas and I LOVED it!). Seemingly endless supply of beach towels and beach service was outstanding! Some of the nicest, most personable beach servers EVER. Huge thanks to Shakeel, Amanda, Kadhees, Danielle, Georgia, and my girl, Ivylyn. You guys are awesome. I'm hoping a Couples rep is reading the review, because I'd also like to point our Roshane. He is currently a trainee, but his service was remarkable. He is a huge asset to Couples and it would be just tragic if he wasn't hired permanently. He seems devoted to his job and the Couples brand.I could go on and on, but I'll close by thanking a few more people - Marlon "Brando" for taking our bags and just being awesomeKeon and Jodi for putting up with me in the gift shop (resort credits!!!)Bellard and his partner in crime (forgot the name :o() with entertainment staffHousekeeping for spotless maintenance of our room and adorable towel art every dayWe're booked for 2017 and I'm so glad!#onelove
Me and my husband went here for our 10 year anniversary! Great getaway, Clear blue oceanfront water, 3 Restaurants to choose from plus a casual restaurant for lunch, choices of excursions to go to, even though you could just have stayed on the resort, and relaxed. Although, this is a little more pricier, you definitely get what you pay for. Also gift shops on the resort, as well as the fitness center across the street. The resort staff was very attentive, and made sure you where picked up promptly to go to the resort, and make it back with plenty of time for your flight.
Just returned from a week stay at Couples Negril. We have traveled the Caribbean and Mexico extensively, but Jamaica keeps calling us back... 3rd trip to Jamaica, 2nd stay at a Couples, 1st visit here. I hate to draw comparisons because every place is unique, but there was something magical about Couples Negril. The vibe is very laid back, tranquil, and Completely chill. The staff treats you like welcome friends instead of customers they are paid to be nice to; in other words, they go out of their way to make you feel at home and happy. Joking, laughing, personable, warm, hospitality. We stayed in building 1 in a beachfront suite. Well worth the upgrade. It was luxurious and the room was well tended to. We spent little time at the lovely pool because the beach is irresistible. Pure, pristine sand and crystal clear calm waters. The food was plentiful and varied. Like anywhere, there were things I enjoyed more than others, but that is a matter of preference and overall we were pleased. Got the best massage of my life at the spa. I think her name was Valencia. She is amazing and has an uncanny ability to find your pains and work them out. The nightly entertainment was varied but not over the top. We loved the local talent group especially. But if you are looking to hang from the chandeliers spring-break style, this may not be your place. This place is about tranquility and relaxation. We loved the included amenities, snorkeling, cruise, and scuba. A great beginners course takes newbies out on a real dive-free!! Don't miss this opportunity if you aren't yet certified! I want to say that having read several reviews before coming I had concerns. Bear this in mind: you are going to a tropical island. It will be hot and sticky. There will be bugs. Not the kind that indicate lack of cleanliness like roaches and ants, but we did see a few gnats and noseeums which you will find EVERYWHERE in the tropics. Get over it. The place is immaculate. What you will experience here is a level of tranquility, beauty, hospitality and bliss that you would be hard pressed to find at this level anywhere in the region. And I've been all over and know what I'm talking about. Bring a joyful attitude in your luggage and keep it with you throughout your stay and you will have the time of your life. If you can't be happy at Couples Negril, then you don't know how to be happy. Already planning a return visit next year. This place is magical. Just go.
My husband and I try to take a yearly anniversary trip to the Caribbean. For some back ground, we were married at Sandals Whitehouse 2013, went to Sandals La Toc 2014, Sandals Royal Plantation 2015 and Couples Negril 2016. So IMHO Whitehouse/Couples Negril tie, SRP #2, La Toc distant 3rd. CN was GREAT! The beach was amazing and unmatched to any where we've been too. Water was crystal clear and calm with sandy bottom. Food was good to very good with 5 resturaunts (if you include the veggies bar), one requiring reservations. Our favorite was the asian restaurant Lychee. Drinks were good and plenty. :) Two pools on the property but pretty much everyone hangs out in the main one. It is huge with a swim up bar and jacuzzi at each end. The resort is centered around the main pool with the resturaunts, lobby and piano bar surrounding the pool. Very easy to navigate. There are 9 buildings that are on the left and right sides of the center for the rooms. We stayed in an oceanview room 2nd category from a lead in. Our room was comfortable and clean with bright colors and caribbean inspired decor. Walk in shower, mini bar and balcony. If we looked to the left from the balcony we could see the beach, to the right the beautiful gardens with the pond. We loved it! Nothing special, no frills, but personally I could careless about all that. I like the simplicity as it inspires a more laid back, easy vibe. Entertainment was good. They had something every night from the Silverbirds steel drum band to beach bonfire. Entertainment wasn't loud and overwhelming, but there if you desired. It was really nice. Service was great. I would say they weren't as verbal or in your face as much as Sandals, but attentive. There were a few that I do think could have smiled more, but either way, service was good. There were no advertisement/selling of spa services, etc like there was at sandals, which I greatly appreciated. Last year at Sandals Royal Plantation, I was out relaxing in the sea in one of the two floatation devices they had in the ocean when two of the spa girls waved me in. I came to shore thinking maybe I was given a spa credit only for them to attempt to sell me a spa service. I go to swim back to the floatation device only to find it is taken. I was pissed! And by the way, couples has float mats for each lounge chair so you don't have to worry about one being taken. ;) I'll be returning to Couples and cannot wait for our next trip!
