Very hard to pick any faults with this place. The food, service and staff were faultless. If I could find a negative we were in block B at the end nearest the restaurant on the top floor. Most of the time we could not use the balcony for the cooking smells and noisy extract fans below. I am sure the management can resolve this issue. Other than… Read more

Sunset beach pool and bar is wonderful and being nude is actually very liberating. Nothing to worry about at all. Read less

My wife and I went here for our 10 year anniversary. We had the best, most relaxing time of our lives. My wife had Celiac, and she never got sick.

We came to Couples to celebrate our 20 year anniversary. We are SO glad we did. When you visit areas off a cruise folks are so pushy but that is not at all what you’ll experience here.

We came to Couples to celebrate our 20 year anniversary. We are SO glad we did. When you visit areas off a cruise folks are so pushy but that is not at all what you’ll experience here. Being from the South, we are all about politeness and are generally warm, open people. Jamaicans are the same. They are proud of their beautiful country and are good custodians. The water is unbelievably clear. No matter how deep you can see all the way to the bottom like an aquarium. The food is fabulous. Vegetarian and gluten free options at every meal. Everyone speaks and you typically get a yeah, mon or respect response to every hello. We are hating leaving. The beach is small but not crowded at all. The sunset (au natural) beach is larger if you don’t mind the “scenery” but we had no problem getting chairs and shade everyday. M Read less

What a wonderful experience! My son's wedding was perfect! The staff made our vacation fun. Some members who were exceptional were: Mario, Akeem, the boat captain, Mickhu, Javonny, also those in the photo shop, and the bus drivers. Everyone was friendly, helpful, and a pleasure to interact with. Definitely planning to return!

My daughter and her husband had the wedding of their dreams at this resort. We were a group of 30 and the customer service for the whole week was excellent. They accommodated to all our needs without hesitation. My parents are older and they took very good care of them as well. We had excursions, dinners, entertainment and the wedding day everything was flawless. My daughter and her husband were very happy about the turn out and all the guests enjoyed themselves as well. If you want a beautiful beach wedding with sunset view and stress-less, this is the place to go. My daughter's wedding was May 2017- they are celebrating their 2nd Wedding Anniversary now but I didn't post the review back then and decided to post it now as we are remembering the good times we had at this trip.
