“Wonderful Honeymoon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2012

My husband and I booked this trip ourselves without the help of a travel agent, so we relied pretty heavily on these reviews and pictures from other travelers. I am so happy we ended up picking Couples Negril because everything about our honeymoon was a complete DREAM! First of all, the beach is AMAZING, extremely clear water that is calm enough to float on with those super comfortable floats that are provided for you. It was never over crowded and there were always plenty of chairs available....the red flag service is phenomenal, someone was always there to take our drink order within seconds of us putting it up and they were back within 5 minutes with the drinks!! The beach vendors really do not hassle you at all, and if you just say "No thanks" with a smile, they leave you alone. The food here was WONDERFUL!!!!!!! We had the best steak we've ever had in our lives at Otaheite...that restaurant was so good that we ate there two nights. The Asain restaurant, Lychee, was our second favorite. The buffet was always a good choice for breakfast and lunch as they always had SO much food to choose from. The staff were all wonderful and eager to serve you in any way that they could. The rooms were not something that you would find at the Ritz Carlton, but they were very comfortable and still nice. They were always stocked with whatever alcohol you asked for, and we asked for extra pillows every night. Let's face it though, you're only in your room to sleep in this beautiful place. We are counting down the days until we go back next summer!!!!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: We were in building 9 on the ground floor...It was a little far from the restaurants and pool but go...

I was told this a few times on the forums before booking our 20th anniversary trip. We were torn between Secrets Maroma, MX or Couples Negril. I'm so glad we ultimately chose this resort. Our top priorities: adult only, all-inclusive, beautiful beach and water, good food, relaxing vibe. Couples Negril did not disappoint!

Arrival - immigration was a breeze, forms filled out on plane (packed 2 pens in the carry on), Couples lounge was small but nice, got a beer, then loaded up and headed out. Made one pit stop for bathrooms and a beverage. Drive was pretty, enjoyed the scenery. I was hesitant about this transfer, but it goes by quickly and it was not the scary "death drive" that some have made it out to be.

Rooms - based on forum tips, booked the garden view and wound up with a semi ocean view. Not sure if our room, 1303, would be considered an upgrade, but it was much better than I had prepared myself for...we got both lush gardens and a peek of sand and water and were farthest from the road. We spent very little time in there though. Don't let the "basic-ness" of the rooms worry you, however, If you are looking for marble, glitzy rooms like in MX, this may underwhelm you.

Beach/water - perfect. clear, calm, warm. If this is big for you, do not look anywhere else. While swimming we spotted fish and a large sting ray came up one day just outside the swimming area. Sand is raked/cleaned daily...super soft. I spent more time in the ocean than I did the pool.

Pool/swim up bar - fun, lively, very nice people and great servers. more people at the beach than the pool so never crowded.

Food options/quality - very good, never hungry. utilized continental breakfast room service almost every morning. loved that the beach grill served a limited menu all night long, from 11:30-4 or 5 am. Ate jerk chicken every day! Buffets were good, nice variety, restaurant service great. Only one restaurant needs reservations and was no problem getting in. Tip: Bob Marley shot is strong, proceed with caution :) Dirty Bananas are yummy.

Activities/Entertainment - while we only went on the catamaran booze cruise (recommend), so many things were included...next visit I will snorkel, and my husband will dive - also included if already certified. All we wanted to do was relax and be nowhere at any specific time. Each night had something going on. The steel drum/dance company group that played at Cassava Terrace once night was awesome! It wasn't very busy after about 11 though on most nights.

Little things I appreciated: no armbands or different privilege levels, no reservation game (only 1 place needed one and as stated, no problem), no towel game, lots of shade on the beach, no towel card, lots of self serve drink stations...if you wanted red flag service you got it, if you wanted to walk to the beach bar, it was right there...small property made getting places easy, and the layout and landscaping were fabulous.

Vendors - I was really apprehensive, after reading so many threads, but we found it to be a non issue. I can't speak for Long Bay, as we never made it over there, but for our area, we had zero issues, and actually enjoyed hearing many of the guitar players/singers who would stop and perform for you on the beach.

I could go on and on, but I know others have more than covered all the rest. I'd be happy to answer any questions if you have em...I know how much I relied on this site prior to booking so I'm happy to pay it forward. If it's any indication, after we got home, I looked up rates for our anniversary next year :) We will def be back to CN!

This was our first experience at an all inclusive ...and ...it will not be the last ! The resort was a perfect fit for us. We wanted a resort that was on the smaller side ...easy to get around and in a beautiful place. We found all that and more at this resort ! From the moment we arrived until we left we totally relaxed ....there are many activities to do if you so choose...ours was to relax and enjoy the beach ...the water ...the pool ...and the food ....and each other as it was our 33rd wedding anniversay week.
The food was good ..I am a picky eater so it was a challenge for me but I did find something to eat at each restaurant and enjoyed my meals. Breakfast was great ...the buffet was terrific ...lunch ..you can do the buffet or go to the grill ...we did both ..depending on what we felt like eating that day .
Two of the four restaurants have air conditioning ..the other 2 are open air ...so you need to deal with the humidity while eating eventhough there are ceiling fans and an occasional sea breeze...this was the only thing that I had a problem with .....as I do not enjoy being warm and sticky when eating a meal...I prefer ac comfort ...but others didin't seem to mind ...just a personal preference ..and that would not in any way deter me from returning .....
The rooms were clean, compfy and fine for the amount of time we spent in it. We were in building 7 and liked its location and the beautiful view we had from our balcony.
The staff was friendly and always there to help in any way...the guests were friendly and we met many nice couples during our stay.
We had a wonderful time and would surely return for another trip in the future.

Room Tip: We had a second floor room with an ocean view in building 7 .

We have visited several resorts in Jamaica (including other Couples resorts), and on other Caribbean islands, and Couples Negril has been our favorite hands down. The trip to the resort is about an hour and a half ride from the airport, and although you can't leave the resort "solo" because of being hounded by the locals, and some feelings of poor security the resort itself makes up for it. The food is fresh and of course all food and alcohol are included since it is an all inclusive resort. You really want to tip the staff because they are always so helpful and happy, but tipping isn't allowed. The beach is amazing with fruit trees growing on the beach for shade (and fruit for the buffets) and the red flag service is amazing!!! There are a few bars that are nicely located and the pool is a great change of pace. The landscaping and feeling of privacy is hard to describe, but it is easy to enjoy your vacation without feeling that people are on top of you. We are going back next May and can't wait!!

Beautiful Resort! To start this was our first all-inclusive and our second caribbean vaca. Great beach and setting. Drinks flow but ask for top shelf or they serve well. Rooms are very spacious and clean! The food got old for me personally but we usually eat out every night so it was an adjustment having to eat what was served. Overall great 5 night stay!

Room Tip: Stayed in block 7. A little road noise but you spend very limited amount of time in the room anyway...

My husband and I visited Couples Negril for our 15th anniversary in May 2012. This resort is fantastic! We've visited some all-inclusive resorts in the past and found the food acceptable and the service good, however, at Couples, the food was fantastic and the service was top notch. Anything you wanted was within your reach. The beach was beautiful, the pool clean, the amenities were clean and the water sports and/or tours were easy to schedule. I cannot wait to revisit this resort.

Room Tip: Ask your valet for any drinks you want for your mini-bar on day 1 and they will continue to restock...
