We were married at Couples Negril in 2002 but had never been back. We decided it was time to return to the scene of the crime!! Lets say that 19 years ago things were quite different. Some things better some things worse. The grounds and location is great. The beach great! I love the size and lay out of the resort. I feel the lack goes to the food and service. It was about a 50/50 split. Half the time the food was ok and half the time the staff was happy and friendly. We had a good week relaxing on the beach. We did the catamaran which was fun. A little crowded but at least it was outside. All in all it was good. We will not likely return just because we like to travel to other places and try near resorts. Read less

We just got back from Couples Negril and we are so happy we went! Based on this trip we will definitely go again. Airport: Couples has a great lounge at the airport so you can wait for your transportation in a cool, comfortable space while you enjoy an ice cold Red Stripe. Transportation: The bus was clean and cool. The driver was friendly and masks were worn by all. Arrival at the resort: We were greeted with a cold glass of champagne and many friendly faces. Check in was quick and easy and our room was perfect. Resort: The property is beautiful and we were very impressed with all the additional cleaning we saw happening. Nyeesha took the time to introduce herself to us and kept our room spotless and stocked with clean towels. Everything is centrally located so you don't have to walk a mile to the pool or beach or restaurants. Masks were required indoors and the staff wore masks in most areas. Food & Drinks: DELICIOUS! There wasn't a thing we didn't enjoy eating. The buffet was great and the beach party was fantastic. Lots of choices for lunch and snacks. Only the fine dining restaurant requires reservations for dinner and we were able to eat there twice. The only complaint we would have is that they only have Red Stripe for beer. A choice would be great. The mixed drinks were good, though. IvyLynn was the best at the pool bar. She introduced us to a Caparino, which is a Mojito without the mint. Fabulous! All of the staff was friendly and helpful. We didn't meet one grumpy staff person! Entertainment: The house band (Roots Harmonics) was really good. Perfect to listen to while eating dinner or playing cards on the patio. The best was Paul in the Piano Bar. We met him at another resort up the road a couple of years ago and were so excited he was going to be at Couples. He's a rock star and makes the sing-a-long so much fun for everyone! Thank you Paul! Advice: Do your homework and make sure you have all the Covid required documents with you and ready. Having everything in hand at each check point of the trip made it go very smoothly. Air Canada was great and very helpful in getting us checked in at both ends. We understood that guests had to be vaccinated, however, found out later in the week that not everyone was. That was a bit of a disappointment. Everyone is required to have a negative test before coming, however. Read less

After missing our trip last year, it was refreshing trip to be back home. It was so welcoming to have every day start with the staff talking to you and their concerns on making sure your visit was going well. We enjoyed seeing old friends (Staff) and even made a few new friends. As always, we found that if you talk to them they will be more than happy to talk to you. There were many staff members that went out of their way to help you whether it was someone from the watersports or Bartender at a bar. They did all they could to try and make your vacation a fun one. There were some things we observed while at the resort to start was the shuttle to the resort. Once we got on the shuttle from the airport, there was no social distancing and the van was filled up with passenger as all the other years. Also, there was no requirement to wear face masks and most passengers took their masks off once on the shuttle. We and a few other guests, did wear the masks the whole way to the resort. Our meals at Lychee were fantastic as always and we found that most of the other meals at the other restaurants were good too. We had daily lunches of snapper sandwich and fries. The only thing as usual as sometimes it might take a while to get your food. Guest were required to wear masks into the restaurant until they got a table. There were some guests that did not follow those requirements but, the restaurants were good about providing them a mask. The tables in the restaurants were as close as they were in the past and guests were packed into the restaurant. Masks were worn by the staff and hand sanitizer was required before entering the restaurants. We decided to have the room delivered Continental breakfast every morning. It was great to have a time set up then have it delivered right to your room. What a great way to start the day eating Danish, Banana bread along with a cup of coffee while sitting out on the balcony. So relaxing and a nice way to start the day. Upon checking into our room at the start of our trip, we were given our appointment for our Covid 19 tests before we departed from the resort. This whole procedure went real smooth. We all meet in the lobby and filled out some forms. Then like cattle being rounded up, we walked to building 3 and waited for our room number to be called. Once inside the room, we were greeted by very friendly medical staff who quickly performed the test. We had the Antigen test and it was a quick easy swab on one side and that was it. We got our resorts back online within the hour. It did take us awhile to upload the results of the Covid tests and to do some of the required forms. Next time, it should go a lot faster. We will be returning back to this resort again to enjoy the kind people, fill every day up by Scuba diving (Hubby) using the paddle boards and taking the Hobie cat out on the water. Thank you Couples again for making this a very special trip for us. Read less

I decided to take a week vacation to relax and celebrate with a few couple friends. We wanted warm weather which we got in Jamaica. The Couples Nigril was in a nice location (90 minutes from the airport in Montgomery bay). It’s on the water that is beautiful and crystal clean. They have paddle boards, and kayaks available which were fun. The pool was good. One of the 2 jacuzzis worked. The room is nice and clean. The food overall was a disappointment. Not very good. Too often I found myself thinking that was OK but not good. The staff overall were good. I had one big disappointment. They have one restaurant that is “fine dining “. I was never told about a dress code, was sat and then had the host (Dean) who sat me come to my table and make me go back to my room and change my pants if I wanted to eat with my friends! I had to get up, leave my party and walk 10 minutes to satisfy this host who pretended to be a manager. VERY DISAPPOINTED! The other thing about this resort was they seemed to make it hard for one to get food. Just seemed like the system was set up for lines and delays. They were free with the alcohol once you got to the bar. I would like to return to Jamaica but will not stay here! Read less
