The intimate resort has been a destination that has attracted couples from all over the world who are looking for a romantic getaway. The resort has gotten mostly positive reviews over the years with a few glitches along the way. We will share our thoughts on the pros and cons of the resort and how everything comes together to affect its performance.
Couples Negril’s property scores well by our standard. With the lush vegetation being the backdrop of the resort, the surroundings have a fresh and welcoming look and feel. Walking around the resort is a pleasant experience as you will be surrounded by nature. In addition to this, the areas are always clean and the staff maintains the property well. The resort has access to the beach which of course is one of the preferred areas for tourists to hang out. The staff also keeps the beach in good condition.
You won’t usually find problems with your rooms at Couples Negril. The rooms tend to be large and spacious, they are also always clean. The resort offers several room options and one feature that differentiates the rooms is the view. There are the Beachfront rooms where you would view only a part of the Sea. The Oceanview rooms give a full view of the Sea and and the Garden View rooms give a few of the property’s vegetation. If the view is important to you then an Oceanview room would be your best option. Though there are some Beachfront and Garden view rooms that provide some stellar views.
It is important to note that if your room is close to the entertainment area then you can expect some noise during the evenings that might disrupt your sleep. Hence, it is a good idea to ask about this before you finalize your booking.
Couples resort has a wide range of things to do, from sports to laid-back activities. There are several events geared towards health and wellness, the spa is one of them. The spa offers massages and you have the option to do classes to learn the skill. Fitness- driven guests can make use of Yoga classes, meditation sessions and aerobics classes. Guests interested in watersports can also go scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, water skiing and windsurfing among others. The resort also provides stellar entertainment for those who want to enjoy their evening with a little music and socialization. We will note that Negril has one of the smaller Couples resorts so there might be fewer activities on the roster than you would expect if you have been to the others. However, there are enough there for you to have a good time.
There are five restaurants to choose from with various meal options. Guests can also enjoy romantic dining options, such as private dining at a nice spot or dining in your room. The food quality is good, most guests are fully satisfied, but then there are those who aren’t too impressed with some of the meals. We believe that if you are not impressed by one restaurant then you are sure to enjoy another.
The customer service on the resort is overall excellent. The staff members try to be friendly to guests and to execute their job to the best of their abilities. Many of the issues with staff stem from lateness such as with room service and other guest requests or long wait times for food. To be fair, however, these complaints are in the minority.
