Couples Negril is located on 18 acres with garden view and ocean view rooms plus luxury one-bedroom suites. A modest nude beach area is a nice, subdued addition to the beautiful beach area. This resort is an adults only, couples only all inclusive upscale resort that compares favorably with its next door neighbor, Grand Lido.
The resort rooms are in several, separate three story building units in garden and beach view settings with lots of space, ponds and facilities spread throughout the grounds, providing an open, relaxed atmosphere where you don’t have to walk far to reach your destination. The main activity building for restaurants, reception, spa, gymnasium, buffets and lounges, is located in the center of the property and very well placed.
All 216 rooms have king size beds, air conditioning and ceiling fans, satellite TV, CD player, direct dial telephone, hairdryer, bath and shower, balcony or patio overlooking the Caribbean or beautiful gardens/ponds. There are lots of wicker, tropical decorations and plenty of sunlight, giving each room a bright, airy feel. Electricity is 110, same as in the states and the water is pure to drink but bring your curling irons and leave your bottled water at home.
Room rates include accommodations, all meals, bar drinks, round trip, air conditioned airport shuttle transfers, entertainment, water sports, spa, entertainment, tennis and free golf (including free green fees and shuttle transfers to the golf course), all for one inclusive price. Only your airfare is extra.
Amenities are numerous and are similar to other 5 star resorts in the Caribbean, with a couple of nice wrinkles thrown in like breakfast in bed for you both.
Off site adventures include free shuttle to Rick’s Cafe, shopping transfers to Negril and a catamaran sunset cruise with drinks. Numerous sight seeing and tourism trips can be arranged as vacation options directly at the resort on a daily basis.
We really like the buffet and entertainment concept at Couples. The seating area in the main restaurant is located near the pool for easy access and at night, there is a stage adjacent to the dining areas, great for music, dancing and entertainment. While there is no separate disco, this area serves as the best place for dancing at night.
Here are your choices for dining:
Island fare, Italian and Continental cuisine plus fine wines are served in Otaheite, the Pasta Bar and Cassava Terrace. The main restaurant also offers breakfast, lunch and certain dinners The Beach Grill offers you a casual dining atmosphere for meals in your bathing suit.
There are five bars, including a swim up bar plus an elegant piano bar, all serving premium brands plus a self-service on the clothing-optional beach.
Other nice touches that you can enjoy include 24-hour dining from room service with a great menu,and continental breakfast in bed to wake up the right way without having to dress for the morning meal.
