Location: On the beach, just 15 minutes from Negril, 60 minutes from the airport.
We stayed one week at Couples Swept Away for our honeymoon. All the staff members (except) a few had pissed off faces the entire time and weren't happy. The room we stayed in had an ant problem. One of the nights we were given a bottle of champagne but no glasses to drink with. The only thing great about this resort was the beach and it's beauty. There was a fridge for a mini bar but you had to order what you wanted instead of just having it stocked. When you were on the beach the service to get a drink was horrible, it was faster to get up and wait for a drink instead of having someone bring it to you.
Stayed in Feb with my husband and his parents. The pros - the beach, the water and the people. The beach is absolutely gorgeous, wide & the water is beautiful blue and clean. The people are so genuinely friendly and can't do enough for you. The food is good at all the restaurants, particularly the two reservable ones. There are lots of activities if you like that. We did the glass bottom boat and it was excellent (Julian & Kevin were great!).The cons - not enough shade on the beach, need more palapa or umbrellas. My husband got up at 5 AM to get us a palapa, one morning our towels and towel clips were removed by staff and replaced with a returning guest's items (obviously they were paid to do so). Happens at most AI resorts, is always frustrating. The rooms need updating, they are not awful but could be a little more upscale. The service is slow in Patois restaurant, still friendly.We had a partial oceanview but with the trees we couldn't see the ocean, still worth it to be close to beach but I'd probably pay the extra for ocean front next time.Overall very nice resort & I would recommend.
First off, the Mobay Pass is well worth the money. Definitely look into it if you plan to visit Jamaica.The bus ride from the airport to Negril is going to take you about an hour and a half. Our driver was great. We stopped for a break about 3/4 the way to Negril. Bathroom and a quick drink and off we went. Some may say the driving in Jamaica is crazy but we had a great experience. You just have to realize what is accepted there is not the same as elsewhere.We checked in late in the afternoon. Check-in was quick and we were off to our rooms. We had three couples in our group so we all found our rooms and headed for some food and drinks. We ate at The Palms. The food was great. The service was excellent. We ordered several desserts to share. All were very good.We visited the Piano Bar after dinner. The Piano Bar is upstairs from The Palms. The choices of beverages were very good. We also visited the Martini Bar. Again, the choices were very good. We arrived just after the live music had ended. The swings in the Martini Bar were a big hit with the kids. It was time to call it a night. We all had troubles finding our rooms. Luckily, we ran into a night watchman to help us. Even he had trouble locating our room. We walked to three buildings before finding ours. Had we been looking in daylight hours, it would have been a lot easier.The resort is long along the beach but not very deep from the beach to the road. They give you a map but I found it hard to follow and the ink was smeared which made it difficult to read words.We ate one night at Feathers. Highly recommended. We were lucky to be there on lobster night. Everyone in our group ordered lobster or added it to their meals. Again, the food was excellent, as was the service.For breakfast, we ate at both The Palms and Patois Patio. The Palms is buffet. Patios Patio is order off the menu. Choices on the buffet were great. The omelet bar was very good. The premade food was great too. They also had fresh Bloody Mary's fixings as well as champaign and orange juice with breakfast.Seagrape Café was very great for a midday snack. The veggie burger was really good. We had the sushi several times but the best food we had were the fish tacos.At the Cabana Grill, we tried the fish sandwich(ok), jerk burger(over cooked), onion rings(decent), fries(very good), nachos(not bad), jerk chicken(excellent), and the hotdog(pretty good).As for activities, we walked the beach everyday. Just make sure you check with security as to leave the Couples beach(name and room number), then check back in when you return. Lots of vendors on the beach. No problems with them. You say no, and leave you alone. The kids paddle boarded a couple times. Had a blast. We also did the afternoon catamaran cruise. It was about two hours. Most people got in the water to do the swim into the cave near Rick's Café. Lots of people did the slide on the catamaran. I did not as I already have back issues and didn't want to make them worse. We cruised fairly close to Rick's Café. You could see people jumping.The last activity our group did was to go snorkeling. You get to snorkel for 30 minutes. We had two in our group that looked into skiing. You need to do this early in the morning before the wind comes up. They never went as they slept in and missed it.About the rooms, very comfortable. Be sure if you want your minibar refilled you fill out the form the night before and put it on your door at night. Yes, they will give you full size bottles.All in all it was a great trip. Would do it again.
Not usually a fan of all inclusive vacations but Swept Away was a very pleasant surprise. From the time you land to the drop off at the airport we didn't have to worry about arrangements or reservations-just relaxing on one of the most wonderful beaches.The water is absolutely crystal clear and the most amazing shades of blue. The amenities are truly amazing; scuba, sailing, water skiing, paddle boards, snorkeling, sunset catamaran sails-all included. Food was plentiful and very well prepared the rooms are clean and comfortable and the grounds are very well kept. There is a fair amount of traffic noise if your room is at the front of the resort but honestly we spent very little time in the room.Overall a wonderfully relaxing trip. Look forward to booking again.
CSA is my happy place! We return around the same week every year and it is great to know so many regulars and catch up! We also meet up with friends who live in another state. We do the beachfront suite - this year it was 1231. It looks down to water sports and Sea Grapes. Love the renovations to these suites! Extra storage and shelves, new lighting and updates on the balcony including lighting and new pillows. Bathroom upgrades are very nice too - better lighting, additional hooks and shelves. The only drawback is the glass in front of the shower is just a little bit too short and water easily sprays out causing us to use more towels each day. I did miss the drying line in the shower for wet suits and the reading light at the bed. There are many more plugs and love the new shelf and chair. We ate lunch or snack at Sea Grapes everyday - fish tacos, Irie veggie burger, sweet potato chips, smoothies, crudités plate...I love having coffee and pastries on my balcony in the mornings. Patois always delivers - love the goat cheese pizza!! and Lemongrass was as amazing as ever! Love the beach party - curry goat, festival, bamy, ackee & salt fish - love the muesli in the Palm for breakfast and the amazing French toast. The chef even gave us a table side demo of Nutella stuffed French toast. It was a bit cooler than normal with choppier waves this year so we took it real easy resting, relaxing and enjoying friends. We love this time of year as it's a very mature crowd vs more of a newlywed crowd. We use the a/c some but open the Louver blinds each night to hear the waves! It is the best sleep ever!! Looking forward to our next trip! Thanks to TripGuy Travel for assistance in booking.
