We returned to Couples Tower Isle in December 2012 to get married and have the honeymoon. We had looked elsewhere in Jamaica to make sure that we had the right location but nothing could get close to the quality and style of Tower Isle.
The hotel is smaller than most which gives it a more relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The staff help to boost the comfortable feeling of the resort as they all seem to be happy in their work…which is rare.
It is sometimes difficult to objectively review a hotel when there is so little to be negative about. Compared to other hotels that we have stayed at in Jamaica the standard of food and service is exceptional. The variety of food available meant that no one in our party went hungry through lack of choice and the quality was excellent.
I saw a review on here that mentioned that certain premium brands weren’t available at all times. I certainly didn’t experience that inconvenience. In fact it was premium brands all the way, including the mini bar. If I could have a slight moan it would be that the beer in the mini bar was Carib but I read an article recently saying that this is being changed to Red Stripe so I can’t even have a whinge about that!!
The entertainment available and the entertainment team were unparalleled. If I was Simon Cowell I would have snapped up the steel band for the next “…..’s Got Talent”. The entertainment team had just the right amount of inclusion in the games. There was no pushing to get involved and their enthusiasm was such that it was fun just to watch from the side lines.
I also need to mention the Wedding Coordinator and guest services who made the wedding the most special day of our lives.
As with any trip to the Caribbean from Europe I would recommend staying as long as possible. There were people staying for a week which is never enough when you include the flights.
Finally I would stress that this is a Caribbean resort and therefore things may not go at the lightning speed that people are used to compared to the big metropolis. Kickback, chill out and enjoy the far less stressful way of life. You will love it.
