We have been back home 2 days now but would love to return again. We were in a dire need of a vacation and this trip was a treasure. Repeat visitors said we came at a very unusual time as we had half our trip spoiled by rain (parts of 4 out of 9 days)Repeaters said in 10 visits they had only encountered one day total of rain in all their visits. As the rain early in our trip discouraged us we found ways to enjoy our time. The resort has many classes you can take part in. The couples massage class was great! Music was wonderful. They even played a romantic movie one afternoon to fill a rainy afternoon. We found the hot tub great during the rain. Even the bonfire that was spoiled by rain was adjusted by setting up a tent close by and had a talented man playing guitar serenading us- loving that memory! All while a bonfire was lit nearby.We enjoyed the water sports. It was so easy to sign up for. I have to emphasize how patient England and Ryan are! I waterskiied years ago and wanted to try again. They were so wonderful to work with. They were positive despite my many failures and made me feel like I would succeed. After many attempts I made it up out of the water! We paddle boarded, used a hobie cat, went on the catamaran cruise.The photographers were so talented. Tip: Don't buy your pictures until right before you leave. You may be able to get a nice package. If you complete a package you are not able to add pics after that. We felt this was a little unreasonable since it seems they could easily add or delete pics off of a thumb drive. Laura has a great lively personality and Jason was so creative with positions and made our session really fun. He shared a lot of fun things that made us laugh.The food was great. A chocolate croissant every morning, the fresh coconut water and the fresh soursop juice! Lots of choices. Surprising amount of U.S. foods. But so glad to get Jamaican dishes to enjoy. I love seafood and was in my glory the entire trip! My husband is not a seafood lover but enjoyed lots of meat prepared perfectly. We are from the Midwest and are picky about our meat but realize the resort gets the best available to them. We felt the drinks were definitely full strength, no complaints whatsoever. We direct booked a royal swim with Dolphin Cove. Used Kingsley James as our driver (from the list) and were so happy with his service. He is such a likeable, lovely man. He even sang for us! The front desk helped us arrange a driver to go into Negril in the evening with ease as well.Our oceanfront room 7203 was very nice. Some road noise but it didn't bother our sleep after the first night there. Beautiful view out to the bay among the beautiful landscaping. So close to the Cassava Terrace so great for breakfast and evening entertainment. We were looking forward to the piano bar but call us old people now, but we found it unbearably loud so we stayed away. It would be nice if we could experience some of Donovan's music ability with the windows open to help bring the noise level down a bit.We absolutely recommend this resort and hope to return. We did not have any bad experiences with any staff at all and will always remember their kind demeanor. Stay here you will not be disappointed!!
After a long flight of 11 hours we arrive at Montego Bay Airport where after customs there is a room of Couples resort. Here we are received very warmly, the suitcases are labeled and we are offered something to drink. `After waiting for half an hour, a van is waiting to take us to the resort (90 minutes drive). The suitcases are taken to the van by an employee and we only have to sit down. Unfortunately it is dark so we see little of the landscape.After 90 minutes we arrive at the resort. Someone comes to us from the staff with a warm wet towel to refresh us and a warm "welcome" sounds. The suitcase will be taken out of the van and after the check-in a piccolo will walk to our rooms.A nice room (we had Ocean View) and fortunately there is still 1 (out of 4) of the restaurants open for dinner.The next day we wake up and the view from our rooms is surprisingly beautiful. We look at a kind of courtyard with a pond and palm trees and in the background we see the Caribbean Sea. Very nice. We leave a tip for the chambermaid. Although this is not a "tipping resort", we know from experience that this certainly helps. After the shower we will have breakfast.This is possible in 1 restaurant and it is a breakfast buffet. There is plenty of choice, Fruit, yogurt, English breakfast, all kinds of egg dishes. We are close to the United States and that is clearly visible in the service that the staff offer. Very friendly and helpful. Then we went to the beach. There are more than enough sunbeds and a towel service is available. Once installed, a waiter comes to you who puts down a small red flag. If you put it in the sand he immediately comes to you and asks what you want to drink. Also at the booth you can order everything from drinking, beer, wine, cocktail refreshments.You can have lunch in the breakfast restaurant or in the grill restaurant. Choice in abundance, aimed at the American market. In the afternoon we pampered on the beach again. It was cloudy that day but certainly warm enough to stay on the beach. After a wonderful day we return to our room. On the bed is one of towels, folded bird, the room and the bed are clean, the minibar is supplemented with drinks (which we had requested in the morning on our wish list). All perfect. After a refreshing shower and changed to dinner. There is a choice between 4 restaurants Grill, Asian, Caribbean and an International. For the latter money a clothing prescription (casual tidy, so no slippers, shorts, swimwear). When we later returned to our room, the "turn-down service" had already passed by (bed was neatly opened and the used towels have already been replaced.During our week we ate in all 4 restaurants and it was delicious.The resort has 2 swimming pools, 1 with a pool bar, 2 hot tubs, tennis courts, basketball court, internet cafe, 2 small shops, a tour desk, where you can arrange trips, and a water sports school where you can get all kinds of things, whether not for payment. We have been away with a Sun Set Catamaran trip (included) which was very nice. You can sail at this school, paddle boarding, water skiing snorkeling and diving. In the bay you can also parasail and be pulled behind a speed boat, sitting in a large inflatable chair. Later in the week we did a shopping tour of 2 hours to a mini mall. The mall is small and only focused on tourism, but nice to get some souvenirs.The service on the resort is really perfect and the staff are super friendly and are always open to a small chat or answer your questions. You can also get a private dinner on the beach (extra) but we have not done that (that week it rained more than usual).All in all, this is really a small paradise and because being an "adults only" resort is a perfect honeymoon location. A warm Caribbean sea where you can just walk 50-60 meters into the water and then the water comes to your stomach.We are definitely planning to come back here!We want to say a special thank you to all the employees of Couples Negril. You made our honeymoon unforgettable! We will definitely come back!
We have been coming to this resort of over 10 years now and always over New Year.This NYE they excelled them selves (it is always wonderful) but this time they stayed true to their Jamaican roots. Music was wonderful, they made the resort look like 50s and 60s Kingston town, WOW.My husband and I love reggae and it worked perfectly for us. I know some Americans were upset and wanted more pop music. They did bow to them and for the last 45 minutes they played Michael Jackson and Anita Ward Ring my bell. :)One thing that confuses us is this.....Reggae is Jamaica's music, they need to play more and be proud of their heritage, showcase new bands. Loved the Rasta Band at cocktail hour on NYE...A Jamaican cannot go to Ohio and expect bars and clubs to play Reggae, so why expect Jamaica to play Cheeseburger in Paradise and Sweet Caroline?Well done Couples Negril, my husband was in his element, Prince Buster is his idol.
Nice place in Jamaican style for US habits. Escape to tropics for 90% guests coming from The United States. All included means everything is free as drink, food and almost services. Great choice and great location. Spacious rooms but only 7/10 evaluation to the waiters. I will surely reply this experience just to verify it something is changed.
This was a splurge vacation for us. We don't typically spend this much on a vacation, but we decided we really wanted to treat ourselves this year. I think because it was more money than we typically spend, we had super high expectations. For the most part our vacation was wonderful. But there were a few experiences that made me question if it was worth the cost.First the PROS: The beach was beautiful! I've been to all-inclusive resorts in Mexico before and always had a "meh" reaction to the ocean, so I was super excited that Couples Negril's beach was so beautiful. It can get crowded during busier days (weekends and holidays), but for the most part we had no complaints. The pool bar bartenders were wonderful and by far the friendliest staff members we met all vacation. I wish I could remember her name specifically, but the woman who served us all week was always so pleasant and helpful.The food was delicious! Comparing my experience to other all-inclusive resorts, Couples Negril's food was hands down my favorite. I am a vegetarian (who does eat seafood occasionally) and I never felt like my options were limited. In fact, I felt just the opposite - there were so many choices I found myself eating even when I wasn't hungry. The activities are all included! I've never been to a resort where all activities are included in your price. THIS is what made the trip for us. Unfortunately we weren't able to try everything (a storm blew through the last 3 days of our trip and the activities were closed), but we did go scuba diving and on the catamaran cruise. Richie, our scuba instructor, was WONDERFUL. I have never experienced anything like diving. It was by far the best part of our trip. And now the CONS:The service was so unpredictable it was sometimes laughable. To Couples credit, we arrived on probably the worst day to arrive at any resort - New Years Eve. The staff were in such a flurry trying to get ready for that night's activities that we were brushed aside. We had no idea what the plans were for the evening, and anyone we asked seemed annoyed by our questions. Most of the staff were so rude the day we arrived that we actually called our travel agent and tried to move to the Secrets in Montego Bay (we didn't move - a refund couldn't be guaranteed). The rest of of the trip was hit or miss - some of the staff were so wonderful that we felt guilty that we had tried to leave, while other staff members seemed rude and annoyed by us. Our requests/questions were often returned with eye rolls or ignored completely. On multiple occasions we had to stand up for ourselves and explain that this wasn't what we requested, or that we had booked something different. The rooms are pretty basic and could use some sprucing up to make them feel a bit more romantic. It would have been nice to have a large soaking tub, or a pretty canopy bed, or even some champagne when we arrived. We were advised by our travel agent that the rooms were simple, so we weren't completely surprised. I honestly didn't think this would bother me (how much time do you spend in the room anyway?!?), but for the cost of our trip it really would have been nice to feel a little pampered. Also, our first two nights were spent in a room right on the road and it was LOUD. We popped by the front desk and asked if there was any way we could move to a new room. The first person who helped us was so wonderful - within minutes he had a new room booked for us and explained we could move the next day. However, when we returned to the front desk the next day it was 20 questions on why we were moving paired with frustration and annoyance. I felt so uncomfortable. SO - overall the food, the activities, our scuba instructor, and the beach made our trip wonderful .... BUT the room and the service could use some improvement. And I know I may sound pompous or stuck up for saying that, but this was A LOT of money for us and we really wanted to feel special, and not like a nuisance.
