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.

We visited in November 2020 during the COVID pandemic. The hotel took great measures to ensure the safety of all guests. We ate at each of the restaurants and the food/service were great. Each morning, we'd wake up to a beautiful sunrise and swaying palm trees. Each night, we had a cocktail and watched a beautiful sunset sitting on the veranda. The bartenders mix some of the best concoctions ever. Feel free to try them all, especially the Hummingbird! You have a choice of three restaurants to dine at, one requires a reservation. Each morning, we ate breakfast at the Patio Restaurant overlooking the pool and ocean. While I feel most of the food was good, there were some dishes that I'd say were excellent. I feel that this is simply a matter of taste and opinion. The staff works hard to make your stay memorable. The grounds are beautiful and the water sports are a nice option for days when you no longer want to lounge around. Read less

Despite the tail end of hurricane ETA (rained everyday) we had a wonderful time. We got married there on Nov. 3, 2020 and everything was taken care of for us. Beautiful. The spa did an amazing job on my hair and make up and even though we were to be married in the beach, they set up a perfect spot in the Bay side restaurant on the water. Our romantic dinner on the beach couldn’t happen so they set up the most beautiful dinner setting right on our balcony and the gentleman stayed just outside our door to refill our wine glass and serve the next platter!! I couldn’t be more happy with the resort. Extremely pleasant and welcoming staff. We will surely be back! The island is exactly what people described. No one cared or stated at you. We met great couples while we were there. We took the shuttle over to the sister resort and even though the resort itself was closed, we were still able to use the beach, pool and bar! The food was great! I would recommend people visit this quaint beautiful place. Read less

My wife and I had an opportunity to bid on an all-inclusive 3 night stay at a silent auction. When we won the bid we did not know anything about Couples resorts. My wife did some research and chose the Tower Isle location. Having done a Sandals resort many years ago I was looking forward to relaxing but had low expectations. We were more than pleasantly surprised by the friendliness of the people, the quality of the amenities, the food and atmosphere. Before going we decided to add three additional nights to make the trip worth it. We were sooooo glad we did. It was the most romantic, enjoyable, relaxing and fun trip we have taken in quite a while. Further, as this was during COVID, I was very impressed with all the precautionary measures taken by the resort and staff. We'd highly recommend. Read less
