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.

You can do late night in a club, or do like we did, and just sit and sip wine while looking at the beautiful beach. We booked excursions through Amstar and the front desk. They really get the social distancing, and all week we observed the staff cleaning and sanitizing everywhere. We definitely will be back. Read less

I took advantage of a great New Years Eve deal to visit this hotel and I am so glad that I did. While it is a couples hotel, many people were there with friends and family members so be aware that that is a possibility. It is an older hotel with different wings but almost everywhere you get spectacular views of the ocean. That in itself is worth the trip! The hotel has great places for you to just sit and look out and that is so relaxing. The rooms are fairly basic but very comfortable and the view again from mine was wonderful. Service was good in the two restaurants that I visited and during the time of Covid the protocols were all followed. The entertainment was excellent and the entertainment staff was very warm and welcoming. We booked a cruise that unfortunately did not take place because of the weather but that is a nice inclusion. The property is a relaxing get away if you just need that. If you need hype and excitement then this is not for you though. Read less

We stayed at Couples Tower Isle for our honeymoon in 2018 and upon returning for the Easter, we felt that nnnewlywed bliss all over again! Couples Tower Isle is as consistent as a resort can get and as a repeat guest, their commitment to the guest experience is par excellence! 1. It was so good to see familiar faces from three years ago like Byron the Porter. His zeal and friendliness have not wavered an ounce! 2. Rosemarie made check-in seamless and had us sent off to our room in no time. Our room was located in Tower 2, affectionately called Chinatown. While our view was nice, it was on the first floor and a bit obstructed. I would recommend the 2nd floor and up for even more spectacular views. If I were to nitpick, the TV was a bit small but the room was spacious and had THE MOST comfortable hotel bed I've ever experienced. 3. Chavelle at guest services went above and beyond to ensure that we could enjoy our trip as we desired. Eight Rivers was booked out for the duration of our stay but we still got to order from their menu. Pro tip: Make dinner reservations prior to travel! 4. Someone needs to give Newman, one of the servers, a hefty raise! Even when he wasn't our assigned server, his friendliness and rapport were so welcomed and welcoming. 5. It would be hard to tell that the resort was not functioning at full capacity. CTI did an excellent job of ensuring that there was something to do at every hour of the day. We thoroughly enjoyed the games room and sunset painting at the pier. 6. The food DOESN'T MISS. EVER. We didn't have one sub par or close to sub par meal while we were there. 7. Aiko at the spa was such a delight. She massaged all my stress away and did a very relaxing pedicure too! The cucumber water was so refreshing also. Overall, we can't wait to make CTI an annual part of our travel plans and take advantage of the repeat guest rewards! Thank you for everything, CTI! Read less
