Ok, so we have decided that we definitely want to go to a Couples Resort in Jamaica for our honeymoon. We are just having a difficult time deciding between the Ocho Rios locations or Negril.
When we go on vacay, we look to relax but also have options for activities. It looks like Ocho Rios has more options for activities but the beaches don’t look so great.
We also like to explore the local area and meet the natives – is this even very safe to do in Ocho Rios?
I would love to hear from those who have stayed at a Couples Resort or have been to Jamaica and can have some input on the subject.

We stayed at Couples Sans Souci and loved it. I’m trying to find a way back this year as I type, lol. I would highly recommend Sans Souci. We looked at Tower Isle pretty closely, but it just didn’t seem to be “tropical paradise” enough for us, so we chose SS. I would love to go to the Negril Couples resorts as well. Couples had all the same inclusions as Sandals but for a fraction of the price. I wouldn’t leave the resort to explore though. There are shopping trips that you can go on, but we passed that by. There are plenty of interesting (and safe) Jamaicans to talk to all around the resort. The staff is amazing and we really liked talking to them.

@MayBride13: We are going to Couples Swept Away. It was a super hard choice between Couples Negril and Couples Swept Away, but our travel agent suggested we go with CSA. I can’t wait to go!

Ocho Rios beaches are rougher and rockier then Negril as well as it’s windier in Ocho Rios. If that helps you decide as well.
