Location: On the beach, just 15 minutes from Negril, 60 minutes from the airport.
Very nice lush place. Rooms secluded among tropical trees.Quiet and laid back.Beautiful beach,soft white sand and blue water. Friendly staff willing to go out of their way for you.Plenty to eat and drink. Scuba diving is included and you can do two dives a day. Diving was much better than I expected and I was Impressed with the reefs. There is no dock, so gear has to be carried to boat. not what I am used to but not an issue. Normally at this time of year,Oct. and Nov. they are @ 50% capacity but because of the hurricane they are at 100% and the place did not seem at all crowded. Beach is miles long and can be walked with out an issue. Vendors walk on beach but they cannot enter the beach area. Plenty to do from sailing to skiing,diving,snorkeling,you name it.Catamaran cruise was nice and caves were interesting. I would do this trip again!
We stayed at Couples Swept Away for a four night stay at the end of October and I wished we had stayed longer. I can't say enough about this resort. Beautiful boutique authentic Jamaican style resort with a great location on 7 Mile Beach. The resort is like a jungle with winding paths of beautiful trees and flowers. We stayed in one of the garden veranda suites by the lobby (2105). I know some have complained about the street noise, but we didn't seem to have that issue. The room had a wonderful Jamaican charm with louvers on the windows, a large comfortable veranda and was always spotlessly clean thanks to the wonderful cleaning staff. Our room was remodeled with the perfect touches to make it feel like we were staying in an island hut. The mini fridge (which was surprisingly really cold) was stocked with all the usual supplies and all the premium mini bar requests we chose during the Romance Rewards online check in. Make sure you sign up for Couples Romance rewards for all the little perks you receive during your stay.The food was amazing at every restaurant. All restaurants were open air with the exception of Feathers which was air conditioned. We always enjoy eating outside whenever we can because we live in NY and don’t get the opportunity very often. It was wonderful with no problems with heat, humidity, birds flying in or bugs. We ate breakfast at the Palms every morning. Beautiful scenery, nice musical entertainment and the food was very good. Lots of choices including pancakes, waffles, French toast and awesome cooked to order omelets. Try the jerk sausage. It’s so good. Jerk Chicken and burgers were great for lunch at the Cabana Grill and Patois or Palms for a buffet lunch, Do try all the restaurants for dinner because they are all great. So many times, you go to an all-inclusive and meals are usually rushed, noisy and impersonal. At this resort it was the exact opposite. Every meal was a great dining experience. Romantic and relaxing. Even the buffet for dinner was so pleasant with live entertainment and just a very relaxed atmosphere. I recommend making reservations and eating at Feathers and Lemongrass while you're there. It’s very easy to get reservations at the customer service desk.The beach was unbelievable, and the sunsets were absolutely amazing. You could walk the beautiful beach for miles. Margaritaville was a 5 minute walk down the beach to the left. They had drink service on the beach between 11-4. There were a few locals selling stuff on the beach but they were never a bother. If you weren’t interested, a polite no thank you and they would smile and be on their way. We did purchase a couple of trinkets from the vendors as they have some very unique handmade things and we enjoy supporting the locals and their families. We did the catamaran excursion and it was a lot of fun. It went to Rick’s Café to watch the cliff jumpers, go for a swim in the caves and watch the sunset on the way back. Lots of drinking and dancing!! All the water sports staff were great, and it was wonderful that everything was included. Make sure you take advantage of all the included water sports like the snorkeling trips, sunset catamaran, glass bottom boats and other watersports. Definitely try the night snorkeling ($35pp), join romance rewards after you book your trip and visit Couples Negril (trading places) (free shuttle leaves at 9:30 returns at 4:00 Monday, Wednesday, Friday) You can take a cab back yourself for $5 if you want to return earlier or later.The Sports Complex across the road is outstanding. It has a nice open air gym, lap pool, hot tub, smoothie bar, tennis courts, racquetball, you name it, they have it. The spa is there also. We did use the spa once for a couple’s massage and it was one of the best massages we have ever had... well worth the money.We enjoyed the piano bar every night, and Shane at the Aura Bar was awesome!! He makes the best drinks, and always remembers what you had from the previous night. And the staff… The biggest asset to this resort and what makes it such a special place is the staff. They were all so friendly and welcoming. Some of our favorites were Sangara, our main man at the Bamboo bar. He took care of us on the beach as well. Always had a smile and a joke, great bartender and just an amazing guy all around. Shout out to Rushell, so funny and personable. Natasha who seemed to work all over the resort. So sweet and bubbly and really seemed to care if you were enjoying yourself. Naldo at the Martini Bar was fun, had a great sense of humor and just an awesome guy to talk to. Leo (the ladie’s man) at Lemongrass was so funny and was the best waiter. These people were like family by the time we left. Such wonderful people at this resort and I could go on and on. There is no tipping at Couples and after receiving such outstanding service from each and every person at the resort you felt a little guilty not tipping. This was the first time our vacation felt like home away from home. I would highly recommend this resort. If you are looking for a resort with an island feel as opposed to a mega resort this is the place!!! I can completely see why people constantly return. Many guests we talked to were repeat guests. Some this was their 20th or 30th time. We don’t usually go back to the same resort more than once as we like to experience different islands and resorts. But we will absolutely be returning to Jamaica and Couples Swept Away soon.
We stayed at this resort from November 4-11 and were blown away by the level of commitment and attentiveness the employees have here. The resort itself is spotless; everything is done with such care and attention to detail. The staff are friendly and helpful, and always on their A game. The beach is stunning and the food was incredible. We've been to many all-inclusive resorts and the only one that even compares to this would be Sandals.We only have two complaints about the trip:1) We don't personally care that the rooms may be considered 'outdated' because style is subjective and really...you're not there to hang out in your room, you're there for the beach and the sights. The shower, however, was awful. I'm talking barely-warm water no matter how long you left the hot water tap on, night or day. To make things worse, it came out as a trickle. I'm confident I've had raindrops hit my head harder than that. It's not a huge deal, but washing my long hair took forever because I could barely get the shampoo or conditioner out, the pressure was so weak.2) The people hawking things on the beach became unbearable by the end of the week. They don't approach you personally which is nice, and security is really great at observing any transactions between sellers and hotel guests; they will literally go and stand a few feet away just to supervise. But when all you want to do is read a book on the beach, without interruption, and lazily doze in the sun, this is impossible to do with people yelling 'RING RING RING, JAMAICA CALLING, JAMAICAN RINGS' and 'CIGARETTEYYYYY, ROLLING PAPERSSSS!' literally every 5 minutes. It. Was. Constant. I'm not sure that the hotel management can even do anything about this but it would truly make me question going back again as I love to relax on the beach and not be yelled at constantly.Aside from that - we had a great time. We'd still recommend this resort to friends and we were so impressed with the landscaping and the way the hotel was decorated. Thanks for a wonderful week!
Disclaimer: My wife and I travel quite a bit and we love Jamaica! We visited the Iberostar Grand Rose Hall back in August and maybe that spoiled us just a bit. We've also stayed at Beaches Negril as well as Sandals in Mobay in the past. And now here. So first let me say that we had a nice time here. How could you not? The location is great and the beach is really nice. The food was great and the service was fine as well. So here's some constructive complaints for this resort. We paid for an ocean view room, we thought the room would be a lot nicer. The rooms are really really outdated. Old, cheaply built furnishings, lamps that still have pull chains on them with horrible lampshades to boot and not one piece of art on the walls. The bathroom is very sterile looking as well. Simple one inch by one inch white tiles on the walls and floors. Kinda looked like a hospital operating room. My wife complained that the shower only had an overhead shower head. She would've loved to also have had a handheld shower so she can reach places that the over head one could not. Women get sand everywhere! lol What I can't figure out is why, with today's technology, can't this resort get a better WiFi system? Horrible connections for the entire 7 nights we were there. Constantly being bumped off and having to reconnect.For people who love the game Corn hole, beware! Their boards are first of all not regulation or even close to regulation. And the bean bags are horrible! How much would it cost you guys to buy a quality regulation game along with some quality bags? C'mon! The snorkeling trip is fine if you've never snorkeled before. But for people who have, not really worth it. Fish are really small and not too much else to see down there.So with a little help on updates, this place should continue to thrive.
We have stayed here twice, and will be back again for the beach alone. I love that they have plenty of rafts. This is a very laid back resort, perfect for a relaxing getaway. We did a couples massage at the spa, and it was phenomenal and worth EVERY penny. The employees are outstanding, especially Ralston. He remembered our names from our last visit, which is unbelievable. Restaurants are great. We are not really into buffets, but they offer an enormous selection for every meal. We love Patois, and Feathers. I am also really missing the sweet potato chips and hummus from Seagrapes. My only complaint would be that they offer top shelf liquors, but they always seemed to be out of them. I would love it if they had another beer option besides Red Stripe, but this IS Jamaica. Negril is our favorite part of Jamaica, and we will definitely return. (Hopefully, VERY soon!)
