You may be wondering why, in the title above, the term Couples Resorts is encased in quotation marks, and the explanation is actually quite simple. According to many of the leading travel sites, the best couples resorts in Jamaica—and there are four of them—are actually named the Couples Resorts. In no particular order of ranking these include:
* Couples Resort Tower Isle (formerly Couples Ochos Rios)
* Couples Negril
* Couples Swept Away (also in Negril)
* Couples San Souci
All four of these fabulous properties are adult-only and all-inclusive, and while they are by no means the most luxurious properties in the Caribbean (or in Jamaica, for that matter) they are all very nice resorts and perfect for those couples looking for romance, solitude and seclusion. Here we will take a look at what each of these properties has to offer, including the special packages offered for those who are honeymooning.
The Best Couples Resorts in Jamaica: Couples Resort Tower Isle
If you are familiar with the Couples resort properties in Jamaica, you probably remember Couples Tower Isle by its former name Couples Ochos Rios. This is the oldest and most established Couples Resort, dating back to the late 1940s, but with its recent remodel in 2009 you’d hardly be able to tell the resort was that old.
Couples Tower Isle features fabulous service and a private beach, so you’ll never have to worry about being pressured by vendors. Spend the day lounging on the beach or take advantage of the free catamaran cruise and horseback riding. At night dine out in style at one of the fabulous restaurants and then head to the nightclub to sway to the latest reggae and Caribbean bands. Everything is included at this fine resort, including 24-hour room service, so if you’d rather just stay in and enjoy each other’s company, the Couples Tower Isle has you covered.
The Best Couples Resorts in Jamaica: Couples Negril
Couples Negril is on almost every list of "Best Couples Resorts" in the Caribbean, and for good reason. At Couples Negril there is always plenty to do, including catamaran trips, scuba diving, windsurfing and a special trip on a glass bottomed boat to check out the exotic Caribbean Sea life. If shopping is your thing, take the quick shuttle over to the famed Margaritaville or explore Pirate’s Cove. Whatever you can think of to tempt your wild side, you’ll find it at Couples Negril.
The Best Couples Resort in Jamaica: Couples Swept Away
Couples Swept Away offers plenty of seclusion and beautiful views of both the ocean and the Tropical Gardens. Their state of the art wedding reception room makes this Couples Resort one of the favorites for couples looking to tie the knot.
The Best Couples Resort in Jamaica: Couples San Souci
All 140+ suites at Couples San Souci face the beautiful, turquoise blue of the Caribbean Sea and its accompanying white, sandy beaches. Four restaurants, including one that specializes in the finest Italian fare, highlight this beautiful oasis of Jamaica.
All of these "Best Couples resorts" are all inclusive, which means one single price gets you all the resort has to offer, including meals, cocktails, entertainment and even the taxes and gratuity. And for honeymooners, the honeymoon package includes fresh flowers, candlelit dinners, his and hers spa treatments and a special beachfront photo.
