@kmarie719:  We’re going to Couples for our honeymoon in June, so we haven’t been yet, but from what I’ve read, it’s definitely a more relaxed, Caribbean-style resort. Fiance and I don’t mind having less-luxurious accomodations as long as the food is good and the booze is free-flowing, which is why we picked Couples. It’s worth it to us to give up some of the fancier stuff to be able to stay longer. From what I’ve seen of the rooms, it’s definitely not the Jacuzzi tub, high thread count sheets, fluffy robes sort of place. I think if that luxury experience is a priority for you, you should definitely go for the Iberostar! 

Plus, it’s your honeymoon. You’ll probably be spending a lot of time in your room (wink, wink) so you’ll want it to be a place you’re comfortable and happy. It might be worth it to have a shorter trip at a more luxurious place instead of a longer stay somewhere where you’re not as satisfied.

You know, I actually just checked the prices for the Iberostar for the week we’re going on our honeymoon – just curious about how much money we would be saving over Iberostar – and I found a pretty low price on Orbitz. I think you have to pay upfront with Orbitz (though I could be wrong) but it might be worth looking into. We’re going to Couples 6/18 – 6/27 and the Orbitz price for Iberostar was actually *cheaper* than what we’re paying at Couples.

I went to Iberostar Grand Rose Hall in April of 2011. I’m very picky with decor, food, pool etc and it’s definitely the way to go. The lobby is magnificent and luxurious and rooms are all modern and glamorous as well. The service and atmosphere is amazing too. The staff there is also very friendly and tries to involve everyone in activities. There is alot to do there for excursions as well we went horseback riding where the horses swam with you riding which was beautiful. I really didn’t have anything bad to say about it. I was deciding between the two as well and am a crazy over the top researcher before making a decision and just felt the Iberostar was the way to go. I would highly reccomend!

ive been to couples negril and going there for honeymoon too.   The hotel has been recently renovated and although it is meant to look rustic and older, the bed is super comfy and the room was spotlessly clean.   

Me and hubby prefer smaller less extravagant hotels though.   

As far as the minibar stocking, although you have to wait in your room, they are there within 15 minutes of calling.  They are quick.

The beach is amazing!   Lots of room and always chairs available.  Couples Negril is on Bloody Bay, so the water is smooth and flat and great for laying on your floatie and just floating around.  

Beach and pool have red flag service.   As soon as you arrive at the pool or on the beach you are given a red flag, whenever you want a drink you just put up your flag and they come take your order and bring your drink.  And they are fast too.

the pool there is awesome!!!!!!!! 

Couples negril has I think 7 or 8, 3 storey buildings.   The resort is not too small but big enough  that it doesn’t take long to get around.  I love the size of couples negril.

most of all the service at couples negril is beyond amazing and the food was probably better then most places I’ve eaten where I live Haha.
