Girlfriend and I visiting Jamaica for the 1st time and staying at couples tower isle. Are there any restaurants/bars outside the resort?
Yes, by taxi. You can go in to Ocho Rios there are many. Scotchies has great Jerk.
thanks, how much do you think it will cost from there and back to the resort? so nothing around walking distance?
Scotchies would probably be around $40 as it is the other side of Ocho. If you like wonderful Italian, try Evita's. Great Restaurant!! Have guest services call and make you a reservation and they will come pick you up and take you back when dinner is done. Then you just tip the driver ($20 - $30)
we're definitely going to try that out. thanks for all the responses. We're going in may, cant wait. does anyone know what kind of drinks they have at the resort? we haven't upgraded to an ocean front ot ocean view rooms, is it worth it? we figured we'll just upgrade it when we get there.
@ New2Diz, Tuscannini is italian and is located at Harmony Hall (Art Gallery) 5 mins from your hotel. Scotchies is 35 mins away for a taste of authentic Jerk.
Good luck upgrading when you get there. We have tried that at CSA many times and never had ANY luck. For me Im not in the room much so wasnt a deal breaker. Many upscale resturants in Jamaica will come get you for free from your hotel and you just tip the driver. For us Couples has such awsome food and resturants we never dine out unless we are staying somewhere else. Have FUN!
Exciting when are u guys going, we could always use a extra couple to hit up Scotchies with! This will be trip number three for us to Jamaica!
The drinks at Couples are strong and not watered Down. Bob Marley shot make sure someone takes your pic, dirty banana, hummingbird, rum punch, chocolate martini, the special martini that's served in a gigantic glass.
Like Marylynn mentioned above its difficult to upgrade once you are there and they don't upgrade for free. We barely spend any time in our room as there was so much going on so it really depends how much you want to see the ocean. The garden view rooms are nice as you have a view of the gardens at night and cal hear all the tree frogs!
You're doomed! Once you come home to Jamaica travel to other countries will be difficult and you will always end up back! enjoy it!
@Meeko, that is correct and each time you visit Jamaica we take a piece of you that you can only get access to on the next trip.......... lol
