Definitely do an all-inclusive! It is so relaxing not to have to worry what kind of tab you’re running up. I have stayed at Couples Swept Away before and loved it – the best beach I’ve ever been to. It’s a little on the pricier side (to me at least) but totally worth it if you can swing it.

All inclusive for sure! We stayed at RIU Negril, the nicer one but had acces to both, and would highly recommend those! I think we went for 7 days, 6 nights, and it was right around 3 grande for the two of us!

We will be staying at Couples Swept Away, which is an all inclusive. With flights it came down to about $3600.

Go with Couples!!  We just got back from Couples Tower Isle which is not in Negril but in Ocho Rios and it was AMAZING, they have two resorts in Negril.  That company knows what they are doing.  Amazing service, food, drink and so much stuff to do included (on and off the resort) that its almost a no-brainer to go with Couples all-inclusive.

Couples Sans Souci in Ocho Rios only has about 150 rooms. It’s the smallest of the Couples properties with Swept Away being the largest and that has about 350 rooms. sunset at the Palms is a cool little all-inclusive in Negril with about 40 rooms and they are all treehouse style accommodations on stilts. It’s not adults-only, but really neat and with so few rooms, the chance of being overrun with a lot of kids is pretty slim. Unless you’re planning on doing 8-hour excursions every day, then an all-inclusive plan still makes sense. Good luck!

@engleman10513:  At Couples, all the activities on the resort were included, like paddle boats, snorkeling, catamarans, live music, etc.

Jamaica does not have mega huge resorts.  they have a law there that doesn’t allow it.  Even the RIU Palace and Sandals isn’t that big compared to others on other islands.

AI is definitely better but it depends what kind of traveller you are.  If you like to explore and want to eat most of your meals off the resort and experience the true jamaica, look at the small resorts on 7 mile beach….. or if you aren’t a big drinker.   

If you go on the trip advisor negril forum, those people are very knowledgeable and can help you a lot to decide.
