“4th Time to CN :-)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

We were at CN from November 3rd through the 10th. This was our 4th trip to CN, the last one having been 6 months ago. This time, in addition to my beautiful wife, my mother and father accompanied us. To be honest, this visit to CN was the best one so far, and we are excitedly looking forward to our next one in May/June of 2013. I have been seeing CN reviews from other repeaters lately saying that they thought that things haven't been as good as their other trips, but in my opinion, each subsequent trip to CN that we have taken have gotten better and better each time. This trip was absolutely the best one ever!

There isn't much that I can say about CN that hasn't already been reviewed. It is still the same laid back, wonderful resort, with an incredible staff. The food quality is excellent, the drinks are excellent, there are many fun activities put on by the staff, and the staff go out of their way to make sure that you are truly enjoying your vacation. The beach is absolutely stunning and kept extremely clean.The rooms, in our opinion, are beautiful and we love them just the way they are. We have always booked Deluxe Garden Rooms, and we love being in blocks 1 through 5, with block 4 being our favorite. The views of the lush vegetation looking towards the spa is our favorite view.

We saw evidence that they are taking good care of the resort, in that both Cassava and Heliconia/the beach grill have recently had new roofs installed. While we were there, they were refurbishing the boardwalk between the dive shop and the spa. Our room had a brand new air conditioner and we were told at the repeater's dinner by the GM of the resort, who I had the privilege of sitting beside, that several entire blocks have received new units already and the others will follow.

We saw three resort policy changes this trip. One is that you must call to have your mini-bar re-stocked and be present in your room while it is re-stocked. I know that this was viewed by many here on Trip Advisor to be a bad thing, but honestly it was no big deal at all. We called to have ours re-stocked one time during our stay. We were asked on the phone what we wanted and it showed up literally 5 minutes after we got off the phone. Another huge change to us was that there was Red Stripe cans in the refrigerator of our room and no Caribe. Thank you SO much Couples, you listened to us! The last change that we noticed is that you no longer need a receipt for your beach towels when checking out. Again, another great change, Couples!

The staff was so attentive to our every need and we were treated as old friends. One highlight of our trip was my 70 year old father being given the resort course SCUBA instruction in the dive pool and taken on a wonderful dive in the ocean by Sugar. This was on my father's bucket list and we were so proud of him for doing it. Sugar was so kind and patient and was at his side every step of the entire experience. Sugar wasvery protective of my father and so reassuring. I can't say enough about the gift that Sugar gave our family. We will remember this highlight of our trip for a lifetime.

The staff was absolutely phenomenal. Not once were we ever passed on a sidewalk or anywhere else that we were not acknowledged in some way by the staff when passing by. It just felt to us that they were even happier this trip. From the bartenders to the groundskeepers, the staff makes you feel like you are at home. We actually canceled our reservations at Otaheite on our last night (which was also lobster night), which we were very much looking forward to, because one of our favorite staff was working at Lychee that night. When we got to Lychee, not only did we receive wonderful service, when we were brought what we ordered on the Lychee menu, she surprised us by bringing us each the lobster entree from Otaheite too! It was another highlight of our trip and the memory of that night will be with us forever.

My mother and father had a ball at CN. They mentioned that they were doing their 50th
wedding anniversary vow renewal at CSA next December. There were so many of the staff wanting to attend it, that they were actually thinking of moving it to CN!

We have loved all of our trips to CN. Each time, we think that it can't get any better than the last, but the staff always seems to outdo themselves. The hardest part about leaving at the end of our vacation isn't leaving the resort itself, it is leaving behind our friends who work there. Thank you so much, CN, for the best trip yet!

Jsut came back from 6 nights at Couples Negril. Upon arrival the service and the friendliness is what sticks out the most. We had a gardenview room on the first floor and it was very quiet. the 2x daily housekeeping is a wonderful amenity. the food was really great in all the restaurants. every day you can view the menus at any of the restaurants so you can decide where to eat. every week they have the International buffet and the beach party. i am not a big fan of buffets, but they have other restaurants open so you can enjoy a nice al a carte dinner then stroll over to the buffet for dessert. the beach is very clean and the water is spectacular. the staff is always sweeping and cleaning. there are always towels in the beach hut and you can grab as many towels as you want and you do not need a towel card. there are comfy floats on every beach chair so everyone has one and you never have to get up early to save a chair. the beach service is very good and they come around every morning with fresh fruit skewers which was a big plus in my book. lots of entertainment every night, some good, some not so good. the photographers are around if you want them, but they are not pushy. the beach vendors are a little annoying but they only walk close to the water, so take a chair away from the water if that bothers you. lots of security on the beach so you never get bothered too much. if you walk off property down the beach, the security will ask for your room number, just wave on your way back so they know you are not lost. take a day over to Swept away, you can enjoy all their amenities, the resort is much bigger and so is the beach, but along with bigger, comes more people, so it is more crowded. the lunch was fantastic over there and easy to find towels, but a little more difficult to get a chair. there is something for everyone with the free glass bottom boat and catermaran rides, snorkeling and water and land activities. they have walking tours to the market, but they have vendors at the resort to buy all types of souveniers. overall it was an excellent vacation. i would highly recommend it.

We were at cn in feb12 weather was great, we stayed at ct for a week before coming here, compared with ct it has a lot more about it, food was good sometimes better than other times but always plenty of choice. Water sports were really good so nice that it's all included did the night snorkling that was well worth paying the extra. Some people have mentioned the vendors on the beach but we were never bothered with any just adds to the whole experience. Would I go back YES

I travel mostly for beaches and this resort doesn't disappoint. The sand and water in Negril is spectacular. The resort is ideal in every way. Couples only, so the vibe is comfortable and the atmosphere is romantic and relaxing. We did still meet some great people and definitely had fun partying to some degree. I found the food to be very good, and the choice of restaurants was more than I expected. Everything about this trip was perfect. The room was spacious and we had a nice sea view. Breakfast on the balcony was a daily routine. This is the second Couples resort I have stayed in and I definitely have no problem recommending it to anyone looking to have a wonderful holiday. Can't go wrong with Jamaica and Couples Resorts.

This is a good place to relax. Great food, accomodating staff, nice room. Scuba diving was just okay. The dive guide banged on his tank A LOT (over every little thing) and pretty much wanted us all to hold hands on each dive...we are dive instructors ourselves, so this was very annoying, but we understood and dealt with it. Tipping happens..which we witnessed first hand numerous times..so this was kind of awkward..not knowing to tip also and risk getting staff in trouble, or not tip and feel like a schmuck. The nude beach was small and NOT private. Anyone walking on the beach can see you..including families and kids staying down the beach at all the other resorts.

We have gone to may all-inclusive resorts but, for adults only, Couples Negril is the best. The property is beautiful and the rooms are lovely. When it is described as all-inclusive, it is true.
The scuba diving is free, as well as, all water sports. We especially liked that for dinner, there were 4 options with different menues. For most of the dinners, they are sit down rather than buffet. The food was excellent. We played golf and there is a cart and caddie fee which we knew in advance. The course is challenging and take plenty of balls. What we most impressed with was the level of service everywhere.

THIS RESORT IS AMAZING!!! We made friends with the staff right away. They all knew our names after the 1st day. The food at Lychee I loved loved! We loved eating there and i still crave for that place! We are planning on going back. The wedding was gorgeous, it was a morning wedding so they arranged for all of us girl to get dressed with the bride and have some Mimosa's while doing so. I loved it because it was small and quaint and Adult only.... But there was always something to do. Definately go in the Sunset Cruise.... Tons of fun and Beautiful!!!!!!!

Room Tip: We were a garden room... it was fine because we were never in our room but to sleep!
