I booked the Couples Secret Rendezvous for the last 5 of 8 nights in Jamaica, and just found out I will be going to Couples Tower Isle. I wanted Couples Swept Away, but obviously was okay with going elsewhere! Glad I booked a hotel in Negril for the 1st 3 days since I really wanted to see the Beach/Sunsets!
Still need some advice though about getting to CTI from Negril (for relatively low cost - but time efficient). I had asked Couples' customer service via email, but have yet to hear back...but its only been 1 day. I figure that if I can make it back to the airport from Negril I can catch the Couples shuttle, but don't know if I can access the lounge in the airport since I hear it is past security????
Transfer companies want about $50 each roundtrip from MBJ to Negril, and they stop at who knows how many hotels on the way. A taxi would be about $140 roundtrip. Both of these would be transfer only and not include any excursions (easily add $100 for 1 excursion).
Thought about renting a car for 3 days while in Negril, and then could make my own excursions from the a la carte hotel, and would work out to be cheaper than transportation and taxi to excursions. I am not a timid driver, as I grew up in San Francisco and have rented a car in Mexico each time I've gone there. But I've never been to Jamaica before, and never drove on the other side of the road (but it sounds like fun).
But I need to figure this out QUICK...I leave in 3 days!
I guess I will post this several other places to see if I get some suggestions back faster.
Thanks in advance if anyone has ideas,
