“Fantastic Stay, IRIE!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

I travelled with the hubby over the 4th of July Holiday, this was our second stay at a Couples resort and first time in Negril.....and we LOVED it. We stayed at Tower Isle last year and it was ok, the layout of the property is a little odd and the beach quality at TI is good, not great. Negril really was a much better fit for us. The beach is superb and we enjoyed floating on the rafts and finding a lot of starfish everyday.

We did take advantage of the catamaran cruise, which we enjoyed, but mainly we spent our time relaxing and enjoying the resort. We were located on the ground floor in building three, yes the bathroom is dated but there are no complaints from me, it was fine.

We enjoyed all the entertainment at the hotel including Donnovan (who was mentioned in an earlier review by a fellow guest). He is a beach performer and not a paid entertainer by the resort, give him a few bucks and enjoy. On the 4th the hubby and I enjoyed the entertainer during lunch, he sang mostly country songs and it was a nice change.

I wish the resort offered room service in the evenings, they only offered continental breakfast while we were there. I am allergic to fish and found that ordering could be a little difficult in the restaurants, but nothing different than I have found in other Caribbean destinations.

I have stayed at many Riu, Iberostar, Bahia properties and in comparison CN was unique, more of a traditional authentic Jamaican feel. Give it a try, you wont regret it. Don't forget to pack your Tervis Tumbler and book through a travel agent. Irie!

Comfortable, relaxing hotel with a great beach. Staff do a great job. Rooms are kept very clean and there is a great mini bar! All food and drinks are of excellent quality. Lots of entertainment and things to do if so desired. Bliss

Room Tip: Stay for as longs as you can afford!

My husband and I just returned yesterday from a one week stay at this magnificent resort. This truly was an unforgettable experience that far exceeded my expectations. The staff, food, beach, & entertainment was perfect from beginning to end! Flawless Caribbean water and beach as far as the eye can see...absolutely gorgeous! Not to mention we met some wonderful friends during our stay that we hope to keep in touch with for years to come! A special thank you to Herbert (a special greeter when you arrive with a warm smile), Camille, Safarie, Marlon, Timar, and Omar for going out of their way to make our stay perfect!! But that is just to name a few....ALL of the staff were absolutely fabulous. ALL extremely friendly and more than happy to help with anything! We cannot wait to return to Jamaica!!!!

This was our second time to visit CN over the July 4th holiday, but our 14 trip total to CN. We'll never get enough of this resort. We're already booked to return in December. As usual, the staff is great. We were able to get our requested building two, close to exercise room to help with the eating, drinking and just relaxing. You can tell by the number of trips that we have no complaints. Each visit we meet some terrific guests and give them a few tips. Ivy, at the pool bar is among the best. The entire entertainment crew get to know you and have added some new entertainment such as the cello and guitar at breakfast...quite a nice addition. The beach party was fun as well as casino night and dancing in the piano bar. When we return in December, we're taking two other couples who like to cruise. They've heard us talk about CN so often they're looking forward to going.
Absolutely the best.

We were there 6/21 to 6/28 with three other couples.

Another great stay. The food was as good as ever. It was great to re-connect with some friendly faces and make some new friends.

When we were there in Nov. ’13, they had you calling to get soda/beer for your fridge. Now they’re back to re-stocking it every day to make sure there are 2 Red Stripes and 1 each of Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, Ting and Ginger Ale. There is also a form where you can have bottles of a variety of liquors, juices and wine stocked in your room at no extra charge. The rum calls for Appleton Special. I’m assuming the rest is of the “house” variety.

We were in room 1105. I was told Buildings 1 and 2 have been renovated and they are in the process of upgrading 6 and 7. They’ve taken out the bath tub/shower combination and replaced it with a walk-in shower.

They still have the “red flag” service on the beach as well as a couple more hammocks strung up between the trees.

A special shout-out to Elke (Elke-holic), Ivelyn (Poison Ivy) and Marissa (guest relations)

Other’s worth mentioning: Floy, Keano, Camille, Milton, Omar, Wilfred, John, Charles (piano bar), Monique, Jullyann, Lindon, Nina, Tonya (sp?), Sontal, Syan and Donovan. We missed Sharlton Tomlinson as he was on vacation.

We tend to hang out on the beach or at the pool bar, but found time to go sailing 5 times and my wife walked the beach every day. It’s about a mile up the beach to the far side of the second RIU. Some of the locals have their wares set up in an area between the 2 RIU’s, but a lot of the days there were locals set up right on Couples beach.

Local troubadour Donnovan Dalrymple still patrols the beach singing some well known songs, but has plenty of his own, too. Give him a dollar or two – he works hard for it.

We have been to Couples Negril at least 8 times. We have thoroughly enjoyed each stay. Everyone was friendly and the food was fantastic! We have been to Jamaica 20 times and we wouldn't go any where else for a very relaxing vacation. We have been to several other resorts on the Island, but we still go back to Couples Negril. It's a smaller more intimate all-inclusive hotel and we love that kind of hotel We also love the location on Bloody Bay. We have visited the 7 mile beach on a day trip, which is practically around the corner, and that was fantastic also. So much action going on. We have toured the Island visiting many sights and we still have more to see. We are used to the vendors and people on the beach selling items. We usually buy something to remind us of our stay there and we also know that this is how many of the Islanders make their living. I would recommend this Island vacation to everyone. If you haven't been, you at least must try it just once. You just may be hooked!

Nancy Finn did a great job as our agent recommending Couples Negril for our Anniversary trip. The resort was absolutely beautiful, very friendly staff, great accommodations and loved the water sports. We would highly recommend this location to any couple that is looking for a relaxing, quiet vacation with just enough options to keep you entertained.

Room Tip: Any room is a good room at Couples Negril. However, we did like our location at Building 5. Very q...
