Nicest place in Negril
The food at this hotel was top-notch. Most of it was made to order. Especially the dinners.
Bar service was a bit spotty, but we did find some people to be outstanding and they made up for the ones that were really in no hurry to wait on you.
Maid service was perfect.
The grounds were lush and green and well-cared for.
The pool was cleaned daily and kept up very nicely.
Bathrooms were always cleaned and stocked.
Other than a mishap where we were taken to the wrong room upon arrival, everything went smoothly.
Entertainment was excellent.
Beach/ocean activities and lifeguards were friendly and engaging.
I'd come back again! Nothing was amiss.
Return to Couples Negril
This was our 4th trip to Couples Negril and it was, as always, absolutely wonderful. The food was fantastic and the beach is the BEST!!!
Love this hotel
I love Couples Negril it was my 5th visit. The staff does an excellent job at taking care of everyone.
great beach, great pool, great bar/service, the food at this resort is not very good at all, struggled to find things we liked to eat for all meals
We enjoyed our stay at Couples Resort! Charles the bartender is the BEST!!
Awesome resort, 4th visit
Couples Negril is the best resort we have visited. Food, beach, people, facility, and included amenities are all the best.
They do everything well here!
Wish there would've been more entertainment. Would've also liked daily housekeeping services instead of every other day. Otherwise, no complaints. My vacation was fantastic.
My wife and I love Couples resorts. This was our first time at Couples. We were initially surprised at how small the resort was compared to Swept Away, but we enjoyed that it was an older crowd (mostly 40s and up) that wasn't real wild and crazy. We come to enjoy the sun, sand, water and enjoy each other. This was the perfect place. We truly enjoyed all of the activities, watersports, excursions and meals provided. My wife needed some medical care while there and the nurse and doctor at the resort were so nice and professional and took great care of her. It was a great trip. Like everyone, we were sad to leave.
Couples Negril staff is top notch! Everything was beautiful, food was plentiful, alcohol in our room was wonderful for the mornings, bar options were endless with tasty drinks. We're hoping to go back in the future!
We were married there. Our experience was wonderful! Everything was stress free and beautiful.

Worst Resort I have ever been too
Worst 5 star resort I have ever been too. I am not sure if you would call this a mistake but we spent one week at Sandals South Coast prior to going to Couples Negril. There is no comparison.
The best things about the resort: jerk hamburger, self-serve soft ice-cream, and the rooms. The room is great for divers, they have an open shower where you can wash your equipment and great big drying racks. The rooms were kept very clean and the housekeeping staff were great!
The food was at best fast food American style. Bland, over cooked, definitely NOT gourmet in the least. The Oriental restaurant was greasy and the dishes served barely warm (obviously pre-made), lobster night the lobster was so overcooked it was chewy, the Italian restaurant was a bit better but bland. Alcohol was a plenty but nothing extraordinary for specialities. Even the upstairs lounge didn't have their daily specials available.
Though the name says couples, it is not a couples conducive resort. On our anniversary was the beach party, no two seated tables available, nor was it offered. Basically first come first serve. New Year's Eve had tables set up after lunch. When we asked if we could reserve a spot they said no but by the time dinner was ready, previous resort goers had put their names on the good tables. When I said something they said oh you can do that.
The diving was fantastic. The sites underwater amazing, the dive shop employees fantastic. Enjoyed every minute of that! The beaches were crowded and had A LOT of smokers (of every kind). No non-smoking sections.
I would not go back, nor recommend the place.
Just back from Couples Negril. The ride from the airport took about two hours in the rain, however the reception at the hotel was first class and was shown to room in under ten minutes. After an evening of thunderstorms woke up to clear skies and a great breakfast. The beach and watersports were the highlight of the vacation for me - soft white sand beach and clear blue water.
The food was first class for the most part, along with the drinks. Also enjoyed the catamaran cruise and snorkeling trips. I did not mind the vendors on the beach and felt quite secure all the time. Plenty of space and shade on the beach, along with plentiful towels.
Excellent service and a calm beautiful beach
We have now visited Couples Negril five times and every time we are impressed by the staff and service. The food is excellent and every restaurant is accommodating if you want something slightly different then what is on the menu. The beach is beautiful and rarely do you encounter high waves. You can stroll right in to the water, it is always a comfortable temperature and not deep at all. The pool area gets loud and crowded mid afternoon as most like to hangout around the pool bar.
The resort is about and hour and a half from Montego Bay so it's a very long drive, however it offers so many things to do you never have to go off site. They do offer a nude side which is a bit awkward as you walk along the beach.
The rooms are very simple but they offer everything you need including a mini-fridge. They have a nice size gym and a beautiful outdoor exercise deck fully equipped with weights and other equipment. Classes are also offered throughout the week.
The staff is very friendly and enjoy getting to know their guests.
5th time - Celebrating 11th Anniversary
Like always, Couples Negril was waiting for us with a cool towel and champagne. The food was amazing, especially at Lyte (the Asian restaurant). The bar and hospitality staff was attentive although we missed seeing many of the long term employees. Wondered if they left due to the huge resort next door. Lots of upgrades over the last 2 years.
Although out of character for Negril staff, the woman in the photo shop had a very nasty attitude. Had to go three times to pick up pics - she clearly did not want to be at work or interface with people. But I reported it to manager. Overall we had a great time.
Great time! Yes! Could it be better? Yes!
We spent a week at Couples Negril, which we selected due to the excellent beach. The beach and water are incredible indeed. World class beach.
The resort check-in was flawless. Our room was in Building 7, which is very close to the main building. But it was also close to the highway and sound from the nightly shows was a bit too much. The room itself was on the small side but why would you want to spend time in the room as your time could be better spent on the beach?
The pool is in need of resurfacing as several tiles along the edge were missing and the paint is discolored.
The staff is very accommodating and friendly. Tennyson, at the beach bar, is the best and always took time to strike up a conversation. The restaurant staff, for the most part, was attentive. We did have the unfortunate experience of having Christina wait on our table at Lychee. I'm not sure what we did, but it was obvious she did not like us. The other dining staff were very pleasant and a pleasure. Otaheite is one of the best resort restaurants anywhere.
We took part in the catamaran cruise, which was a lot of fun as we explored a cave on the cruise. We also went on the daytime and night snorkeling trips. Night snorkeling was great. Lots to see and the guides were on top of things.
Overall, we had a great time, relaxing and met some really nice couples. Could the resort be better? Cosmetically, it needs a refresher. Don't stay in buildings 6-8 unless you bring ear plugs. The amount of vendors strolling the beach was distracting as was the boats trolling just beyond the swim rope. San Souci, even with a smaller beach, is our preference of the Couples resorts.
Again, the beach, the staff, and overall experience were very good.
