Just returned yesterday from Couples Swept Away, October 6. We were only able to vacation for four nights and it was very nice. This resort is for BEACH lovers, which I am not, but ABSOLUTELY ENJOYED this beach and the water . . it was great. I don't ever remember spending that much time in the ocean. This is not a resort if you are looking for large pools.
The staff is amazing, friendly, smiling, and all have a great sense of humor. Winston at the beach bar, was amazing and joyous!! Jeffrey and Cooper at the watersports area, private boat rental, one to three hour cruise (Jeffrey was our captain) . .worth every extra cent !!! I can't say enough about the employees and the resort is clean, even though the resort is aged. The pool areas will need some maintenance very soon. You cannot go to this resort and want glamor . . but if you want a real Caribbean atmosphere, this is great. The food at Feathers and all venues was very good. The Steel Band performance was another pleasant surprise as was the beach bonfire . .. .great vocalist!!!
The beach vendors are ALWAYS annoying at any resort, but Couples tries their best to keep them away . .. at a distance.
We didn't mind the long transfer time; great way to see parts of the island. I would return to Couples Swept Away. I would recommend that the resort expand their check-in area; only two or three desks available for service and that can be a problem.
Thanks so much!!!
