Couples Tower Isle Ocho Rios
The Best of Everything; and everythings included
We got married on the beach at the all inclusive Couples Tower Island on 10/2/10. I cannot say enough positive things about this place. The people are the friendliest and gracious I have ever encountered. The food is excellent, drinks are well poured, and the place is spotless. Food, drink, snorkeling, scuba, horse riding, sailing, on and on...all included in this fabulous all inclusive. They even have a small private island with pool and bar for nudist; no phones or cameras allowed and free transportation coming/going. The nude thing is a small fraction of what this adult only place is about, but for a wholesome, once in a lifetime opportunity... The event staff (we love Yojan) and entertainment are first class and talented groups. Prepare yourself for a drive to Couples when you land, it takes 1 1/2 hrs, but you get to see the island. When you get there they held $300 on my card as a credit but I had not unexpected billings when they cleared my account, and with the wedding and all there were a lot op opportunities for error. Oh yes, the wedding; the Wedding Planner, Preacher, Photographer, flowers, setting, cake, champagne... all provided, everything perfect, on time, could not have wished for more. The free scuba and instructions for first timers was completely professional. Water skiing; included. I just can't stop saying enough nice things about Couples Tower Island; we shall return.

Wonderful Honeymoon Retreat
We stayed 7 nights, and would have stayed many more. They treat you like royalty. Rooms were great, lots of activities, and beautiful views! A+
Unique Quality: They have secluded whirpools on grounds which were very romantic. Staff was very knowledgable and answered all of our questions. Overall just a fantastic experience.
Relax, Relax, Relax
Couples Ochos Rios is a nice all inclusive resort but its sister facility in Negril is better. This facility is older so there is a lot of grandeur when you walk into the lobby and there is beautiful old mahogany wood shutters and pristine white walls to meet you. It reminds me a lot of an old Humphrey Bogart movies in black and white or something like that. The atmosphere here is very Old World Jamaica, regal, how do I take care of you tourist who has come to spend money. The pool is not as nice as the Negril pool but the front of the facility is set up as a lush garden with hideaway jacuzzis to find and have fun in. However you will find that if you go too late in the day, you will be attacked by mosquitos so its not as much fun. They also have a wonderful chest board on their facility where the pieces are the size of small children. The tennis courts on the facilty were nice too. Our room was very beautiful off of the beach. We had a deck which we enjoyed breakfast at every morning as we let the nice morning sun warm us up. They also have a great restaurant serving seafood that has a gentlemen who seranades you at your table singing "Sweet Caroline" and "Love Me Tender" with an acoustic guitar and Jamaican accent. It was great.
Clean resort for couples
I was actually staying at this resort because my sister was getting married. Being single at a resort designed for "Couples" was not exactly my best vacation, but all in all I was happy with the resort. Accomodations were nice and clean, and the staff was friendly. The downside is it wasn't very close to anything, so you had to travel a bit to get to and from anything else.
title says it all. was there with an old GF and after being at AIs or other resorts its nice to go to dinner or hit the beach w/o any rug rats out to destroy something. over all the place is in better shape than i was told. the 04' hurricanes had left some damage but it was very minimal. staff was great and made it fun all the time. food was good, the better resturants were lacking a little but overall good.
Unique Quality: two hot tubs, large main pool, small beach but very well kept. staff, staff, staff. they go out of their way to make everything IRIE mon!
Directions: 2.5 hrs from MB, get ready for a wild bus ride! wish the roads were done, they are getting there. such a poor econ.
One of the first AIs in Jamaica and it shows
We stayed here on our 4th trip to Jamaica (Feb 2005). I hadn't planned on staying here but my first choice was booked and I had read positive reviews on Trip Advisor. Although there are definitely some pluses to staying here, I don't think I would recommend it, esp. not to people who travel to resorts a lot, and personally I would not return to this location.
The hotel is about 5 miles from Ocho Rios and shopping, the resort offers a shopping trip or you can take a taxi ($30 US RT).
The Couples resorts are for heterosexual couples only, no one under 18 and no same sex couples. The age range was pretty wide, everyone from honeymooners to seniors. At this time of year it's mostly Americans and Canadians with a few Europeans, in the summer they said it was mostly British tourists.
For more pictures and description, see the travelogues.
Unique Quality: Rooms-this is one of the first AIs in Jamaica and is really showing it's age. The rooms, although clean, were worn and not very flashy like some of the newer resorts. You can choose from a garden view or ocean view, there are 200 or so rooms. We were in the central building and it was quiet there at night.
Bathroom-didn't have a hot shower the entire trip although you could usually at least get a warm one. Toiletries included bathgel, shampoo, aloe and lotion but you had to ask to get them replenished.
Common areas-although clean, they seemed dated as well and not as showy as some of the newer resorts
Water sports-one of the pluses of the resorts were the water sports-scuba, kayaking, wind surfing, hobie cats, snorkeling trip and catamaran cruise were all included
Excursions-another for the plus column-Dunn's River Falls, horseback riding, Margaritaville and shopping into Ocho Rios all included
Daytime/Evening activities-like most resorts there is always something going on, talent shows, volleyball, newlywed games, craft demos, etc.
Food-the two reservation restaurants, French and Italian were good but not great although service was good at both. There was a buffet restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner, once again the food was good but not great. The final option was the beach grill for burgers, fries, etc.
Staff-another for the plus column-extremely friendly and helpful, check in was very smooth as was check out
Pool/hot tubs-OK but not spectacular like some of the other resorts in Jamaica. Only swim up bar was on the au naturel island. There were several hot tubs, 2 of them private in the garden but the water temperature was tepid at best.
Nude sunbathing-if you want to sunbathe in the buff, there is an island reachable by boat to do that at with a swimup bar and a tower that has a washroom
Directions: 4-5 miles from downtown Ocho Rios, 2 hours from Montego Bay airport
