Hey Bees – Now considering Jamaica for our September honeymoon. Looks like the Couples resorts have a lot to offer. If you’ve stayed there before, please tell me which one you liked best and why you picked it over others (food? rooms? location? what’s it included? entertainment?) Thanks!

i JUST got back from my honeymoon at Couple Negril and we absolutely LOVED it!!! we definitely plan to go back! i can’t compare it to any of the Couples resorts as i have not been, but we could not find anything wrong with this one! food was amazing, activities were plentiful, beach was drop dead gorgeous. the rooms were spacious and beautiful. not sure what else to say except that it was hard to leave and i can’t wait to go back!
when i was deciding on a resort, i knew i wanted to go to Negril so i was deciding between Couples Negril and Couples Swept Away. I went with Negril because it was slighly cheaper and i couldnt find much difference in their descriptions. maybe Swepy Away had more activities? but there was still so much to choose from that we didn’t even have time to do everything and get some beach relaxation time. so we were 100% satisfied!
In general, Negril is supposed to be the nicest part of Jamaica (beach wise) and since i stayed in both Montego Bay and Negril, I agree!

we also talked to some of the staff there and they told us that Couples resorts treat their employees much better than other big name resorts. Couples pay their employees for training and provide transportaiton to get to work. Sandals on the otherhand will have employees in training for 6 months with no pay! and they dont provide transport. so all the more reason for me to go to Couples resorts in the future over the other ones.

We’re having our September honeymoon at Couples Negril too! Haven’t been yet (obviously) but I’ve been doing extensive research on the 4 resorts and we’ve decided on Negril.
I don’t think you can go wrong with any of them. Our reasons for choosing Negril over Ochos Rios are:
1. The sunset on the west side of the island is said to be phenomenal (moreso than Ochos)
2. It is windier in Ochos
3. The beach at Negril is to die for
4. I’ve read that Negril is safer than Ochos
If you go to the Couples Resort website, look through their online forum. You will get lots of information from people who have vacationed there.
