To all the ladies who have been to Couples Resorts here is my dilemma please help. So we booked our honeymoon at Couples Swept Away for May 11-16. Problem is the room is the lowest most standard Garden Verandah Suite and there currently are NO upgrades available. However, Couples Negril about ten minutes away does have a Deluxe Beachfront Suite which would be only 200-400 more at most. So here is the main question..
What resort is better? Swept Away? or Negril? How important/unimportant is the room? What are the main differences between the two resorts? Should we just stick to CSA and pray there will be an upgrade upon arrival?
Feel free to PM me if you prefer. We are confused and need to make a final decision asap here

Try looking up both on tripadvisor.com as a starting point. Just take the site with a grain of salt ( people often get on there to whine when something goes wrong and get on there less when things go right ). At least there are photos taken by guests there to give you accurate pictures.

I don’t have much advice, but does the “couples” chain allow you to travel between the two resorts? Because if that is the case, I would upgrade to the better room and then hang out at whichever resort you liked better… If they are really only 10 minutes away that’s not a huge deal. Most chain resorts let you travel between their “sister” resorts if they are nearby.

I just booked CSA because soooo many people have said so many awesome things about it, even moreso than Negril. It’s an Atrium Suite, pretty much like yours. Not the top of the line but that’s all they had. Do I want an oceanview? Yes. Will it ruin my trip? Hell no. I think every room will be fantastic and I’m not too worried about it. May try to upgrade once we get there but I know it will be a busy time.

I don’t think the room really matters that much. I am usually only in there to get dressed, shower, and sleep. I’d rather a great resort over a better room. But I haven’t looked at either of the resorts you’ve mentioned.

@o0olibelulao0o: I agree with this. Do yourself and look over both resorts – which restaurants and activities do you like better? From our research, CSA was a bit younger and more health-conscious, CN seemed to have nicer rooms and we liked how the restaurants sounded more. We went with their resort in Ocho Rios in the end, but I think you’ll be happy at either resort!
