Our Experience at Couples Swept Away Negril

Couples Swept Away fully immersed us in an island state of mind from the moment we arrived.

Our spacious Beachfront Verandah Suite with French doors opened up to a private balcony offering partial views of the Caribbean Sea.

We loved that we could stroll just steps away to claim our lounge chairs and relax at Negril’s best beach — Seven Mile Beach, or play a round of beach volleyball.

The Service

Couples Swept Away’s prime beach locale made spending entire days barefoot in the white sands, living our best island life incredibly easy.

From beachside butler service to poolside cocktails delivered with a smile, the excellent staff provided personalized, exceptional service that made us feel like VIPs.

We loved the vast array of delicious dining options, from fresh seafood to authentic Jamaican dishes like jerk chicken to delectable international cuisine. Each meal felt like a celebration, a slice of paradise, if you will. 

The Activities

Our all-inclusive activities ranged from adrenaline-pumping watersports to magical sunset catamaran cruises.

We tried our hand ar pickleball on the resort’s courts and enjoyed couple’s massages at the world-class spa.

We learned how to cook ackee and salt fish at a cooking class,  crafted refreshing cocktails at a mixology class, and danced the night away thanks to the resort’s electrifying live performances. 

To cap off the evenings, we snuggled on the beach to gaze at the glittering night sky dotted with stars. As the soothing sound of waves rolling onto the shore filled the air, we cozied up next to a crackling beach bonfire, embraced by the warmth and simple pleasures of our tropical island escape.
