Couples Tower Isle

Ocho Rios, Jamaica

The hotel

Every holiday feels like a honeymoon at this 5-star Ocho Rios retreat. Only open to couples, it doesn’t just feature four pools and 19 acres of beachfront, it also has its own private island – just in case you prefer your sunbathing au naturel. The team whisks you there by boat to sunbathe in seclusion, or to drink at its swim-up bar. While, back at base, Couples Tower Isle indulges you with its beach bar flag service, a twice-weekly Martini hour on the roof, water sports like scuba-diving and hydro biking, and a spa that’s been dubbed Best Caribbean Hotel Spa by Travel + Leisure magazine.

I would like to send an appreciation to Troy at Ext.1413 Who helped me out with our Extended Stay at Couples Tower Isle Ocho Rios. I was very pleased with the clear conversation we had and how I was able to request a First Floor Garden View and also a special Event for our Honeymoon. Because we originally booked a while back through FITBODIES as the Instructor for the week, we just considered it a teaching Vacation. We decided to move our Wedding Date and Will now be spending the week at Couples for our Honeymoon as well. Our extended stay should hopefully give us a day to relax on the Island!!! Where we first Fell Head over Heels for eachother 4 years ago. We love all the staff at Tower Isle and can't wait to experience our Stay in February! We Stayed Here in 2018 and LOVED Every Minute! I really Cant wait to get back. If you like Quiet, Cozy and Romantic, this is the place Read less

This is our second time at Couples Tower Isle and we were wowed again! The resort and grounds were immaculate (huge thank you to our housekeeping staff who kept room 3606 spotless) and the health measures in place put our minds at ease. On site testing was well organized and executed by Lesworth Johnson. Covid test results arrive promptly via email. Upon arrival we were greeted like old friends by Kirk. He and his partner in crime, Byron, kept us entertained whenever we passed by the lobby. The front desk staff was always smiling and eager to help. Excellent resort ambassadors for sure! The food is absolutely spectacular. The cocktails as well! The martini nights on the roof are nothing short of magical. The variety and the quality of the food and drinks were amazing! Special mention to the incredible staff whose attention to detail and service is impeccable. From Paul at the Veggie Bar to Jermaine P., Shannice, Mrs. Wilson (who kept the bars stocked and everyone in line😊, Michael, and Clayton the masterpiece creating chef at the Veranda who was very patient with our numerous questions, we salute you all for keeping us well satisfied. Callmore, our smiling, sometimes right with the weather forecasting, captain was skilled and personable. His smile when patiently hauling us back and forth to the island twenty times a day was contagious. Martin, does a great job keeping all the pools clean and deserves a mountain of credit for his work ethic and gentlemanly demeanor. Fitroy from watersports injected humour into our day! Hayden did a wonderful job explaining the onsite plants during our garden tour. Totally interesting! A HUGE thank you to our happy go lucky bartender, Cleyandrew! His creative drink making skills, gift of the gab, and effort to grant our odd drink ingredient requests was super appreciated. He is a wonderful human being and should be commended as a stellar employee. Don’t lose this guy! 😊 Our trip to Couples San Souci and tour of their beautiful property had us planning to stay a few nights our next trip. The grounds are steeped in flora and fauna charm and the special beach staff welcomed us even though we weren’t staying at the hotel. The lunch by the pool was great. It’s so worth taking advantage of the Trading Places option. The entertainment staff is just another highlight of this resort. The house band, the under the stars singer (loved dancing to his dreamy voice), the wine tasting, and the daily activities staff (Cariba and others) made the difference in keeping us busy and content. The highlight for us was the nightly piano bar karaoke with Cragon!!! Surprisingly, it doesn’t get old even after ten days. This man is not only a talented pianist, but also a skilled crowd pleaser. Not to be missed. He is another Tower Isle jewel! In conclusion, if you are looking to be spoiled in a luxurious hotel, with superb staff, food, and amenities, then Couples Tower Isle is definitely the vacation paradise for you! Read less
