Couples resorts were pioneering the concept of all-inclusive, romantic Jamaican holidays as far back as 1978, and the Couples Swept Away Resort Hotel is an idyllic adults-only venue. Starlight shines down on intimate Caribbean dinners on velvet sands, while oceanfront verandas offer cinematically romantic settings. The 10-acre fitness complex is heaven for those who take their health regimen seriously. After a strenuous workout, book a spa treatment for two and lie side by side for Swedish massages, body scrubs or seaweed wraps.

Neighborhood
Couples Swept Away is set on the purest white sands of Negril's Seven Mile Beach, boasting romantic seclusion and lavish facilities. The resort is situation right on the beachfront roughly halfway between the vibrant town of Negril to the south - known for its raw, rugged cliffs overlooking snorkel-friendly waters - and the serene, picturesque Orange Bay to the north. Guests can take an eye-opening harbor trip in a glass-bottomed boat, or enjoy a magical sunset cruise. Watersports are popular with honeymooners, and on-site equipment is available - including sea kayaks, sailboats, masks and flippers.
Hints and tips
See more of the island by asking about the five off-site excursions offered at the resort, which include a shopping shuttle that takes in some of Jamaica's biggest shopping malls.

Or hitch a ride to Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville just down the coast, where you can dine on fresh seafood and gigantic cocktails.

Tips You Should Know

Couples will transport you for free from the airport. After you check immediately (Before you go to your room) book your catamaran and glass bottom boat excursions. Also book you entree restaurants and get them as early in your trip as possible (Feathers and Lemon Grass). You cannot re-book until you have had your first dinner. Do not book a dinner on Saturday. This is lobster night (Go to the Palms Restaurant) Monday is International Night which should not be missed unless you are going to the Repeaters Dinner (For Those who have been to Couples Before A do not miss). Sea Grapes is by far the best place to eat at lunch (Service is slow if you order Fish Taco or Fish Sandwich - Both I highly recommend). They have a orientation at 10:00AM and 5:00PM which you really need to go to every-time you stay at a couples. The Health Club / Sports area is probably the best in all the Carribian, I took up Tennis again (Free Lessons every day) . The running track and workout areas are top notch. Lap Pool is wonderful. Golf is also available for a small fee. Massages are best offsite about $1.00 per minute. At the beach facing the Ocean go left off property and you will find many massage opportunities. Down-side: The Pools are not very nice and are very small. Everything here is about the beach and the sand. There are a number of hot tubs but often the temperature was turned off or down and were only in the low 90's. Both times we have stayed we had problems getting the Liquor / Soft drinks we ordered for the room. Even seeing the concierge did not help. We have stayed at Couples Resorts 3 times and are planing to go back again in October to Jamaica. If you have any questions please send me a message. The smaller catamarans are also enjoyable and they will take you out or you many take them on your own. Rooms: We prefer the Atrium Rooms with their large patios or decks (There are no Televisions in these rooms) Ask for a quite area. Do not stay near the Palms Restaurant (Loud at night and loud in the AM) This Room is only slightly more than the lowest price room and well worth the difference. Room Tip: I am High on the Atrium Rooms. Do not stay near the Palms Restaurant.

Just ok

This hotel is just ok. Very overrated. Food was not good. Service in restaurants was slow. Rooms in front of resort are on a busy road and extremely noisy. Beds are hard and uncomfortable. Entertainment staff cancel events without notice. Very disappointing experience for the price. 3 star experience at best. Negril beach is beautiful though.

romantic getaway

clean beach, no seaweed clean pool clean room, no bugs, minimal mosquitoes even at night not crowded, no teenagers everyone is mature, not many people in their 20's or 30s, mostly 40+. average food, no incidence of food poisoning good selection of mixed drinks people on the beach: always trying to sell you something, can be annoying at times water activity people always trying to sell you an "extra package" and hustle you overall: if you don't mind the food and just want a nice clean beach with good drinks and not have to worry about food poisoning this is the resort for you. Get the Oceanfront room its worth the money.

Not quite as lovely as our first visit

We decided to return Couples Swept Away for our 10th anniversary since we were married at the resort. Many things were the same which was wonderful. The beach is absolutely superb. Unfortunately, vendors are allowed to wander the beach and harass all the guests. It wasn't like this on our first visit. I even saw children of the vendors swimming in the roped off area for guests. Not what I want to see at an adults only resort. The security guards are all buddies with the vendors and do nothing to keep them away.

Perfect for couples

Location could NOT be better. Stunning view - we had a beach villa - steps from the beach which was perfect way to begin each day. Only complaint would be be alcohol options - really need to offer more beer selections, top shelf liquor should be offered at all bar locations and the wine REALLY needs to be better. Super clean - room was cleaned each day and it was needed with being on the beach and sand being dragged into the room. Staff, for the most part, were very friendly. You would stumble on some that were not - but that's to be expected. Wonderful 25th anniversary trip.
