Review - Couples Negril, Jamaica

I recently visited Jamaica for some resort tours and a 6 night stay at Couples Negril. I send many honeymoon clients to Couples Resorts and have always loved the feedback I get. I wanted to try out Couples Negril for myself, so in June my boyfriend and I took a charter flight and headed down.

First of all, if you are considering doing the VIP Airport Service at Montego Bay Airport - do it. It's completely worth it to be able to arrive and skip the lines at customs. I always recommend this for my honeymoon clients.

As far as the resort... what I love about this property is that it is small, with an intimate boutique feel, yet there is plenty to do. The beach is wide and kept very clean and the sand is soft and white. Exactly what I wanted.

The water is calm in this area with easy swimming/floating around. It's a great location for just hanging out on the beach or on the water all day.

The rooms are nice, but not what I would call fancy. I liked that. They felt more authentic and less Americanized, but still had all of the comforts of home and were kept very clean. My room was a Garden View and it was a real garden view, meaning I was looking out at lush landscaping and palm trees. There were birds in nests that woke me each morning which was very nice.

The resort had wonderful food. I spoke with many guests during my stay and everyone had great things to say about the restaurants. Lychee had some of the best tofu dishes I've had and I heard wonderful things about the shrimp and chicken dishes as well.

The best restaurant is Otaheite. This is the one that requires reservations and has a dress code. Make your reservation as soon as you arrive to the resort to make sure you get to dine here.

The Cassava Terrace has breakfast, lunch and dinner. I was very impressed with this. You don't always know what you will get with a buffet, but this is top notch. Everything was fresh with a ton of flavor and tons of options. As a vegetarian it was great having things labeled clearly too.

The service is what really sets this place apart. The staff are wonderfully polite, caring and genuine. Also, the option for the off-property tours makes this place a gem in the all-inclusive world.

I will keep recommending my clients go here and I will be back for sure as well. If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask. I have tons of information to share!
