A Weekend Stay at Couples Tower Isle, Ocho Rios, Jamaica
I love a good adults-only all-inclusive hotel stay but there was something magical about staying at the Couples Tower Isle Resort in Ocho Rios, Jamaica.
My husband and I booked our stay using Gustazos. Since it was a short stay it was important for us to find a good deal for our mini vacation. Of the list of available hotels, picking Couples as our venue to celebrate our 2nd anniversary was a no-brainer. We chose the Couples Tower Isle for two reasons; it was closest to Kingston (which meant it wouldn’t require too much driving) and it was on my bucket list of resorts to visit.
And when we arrived we had no doubt we made the right choice.
Though the time was short it gave us enough time to know we’d love to stay at Couples again and now I’m excited to tell you why.

Great customer service
I can’t really say I’ve had a lot of experience with bad customer service on my stays and that’s something I’m extremely proud of as a local.
At Couples Tower Isle, however, the commitment to service was excellent. This was our first trip where a bellman took our bags to the room and proceeded to explain all the amenities our room provided and how we could access them. Though we arrived late evening at around 7/8 pm the welcome the bellman provided made us feel like we arrived at the usual check-in time.
We were tired after travelling to Ocho Rios after work on a Friday but we didn’t want to miss out on dinner. We were able to make it to the main buffet, eat and catch the evening’s entertainment.
All throughout our stay, every staff member we interacted with was pleasant and professional. And I can’t forget how familiar one of the lovely breakfast servers was with us in just two days. I headed to breakfast ahead of my husband on our third day while he got something sorted and the lovely lady who had seated us the day before asked for him. I really appreciated the thought. In my experience, that level of familiarity usually comes after a much longer stay.
This Friday night show was spectacular. I had no idea Jamaicans had this many gymnasts/ contortionists. The performances aimed to dazzle the audience and as proof, I still can’t comprehend some of the amazing feats I saw completed.
The show was the perfect way to unwind after a long week of work. After taking in the show we called it a night on our first day at Couples.
There was live entertainment each night but for this vacation, I was more interested in resting. I lounged around the pool, in bed and did whatever my body wanted to do. So I can’t say too much about the entertainment offerings at Couples Tower Isle.
Besides the nightly entertainment, at Couples, the experience is truly all-inclusive. The adults-only resort comes chock full of activities included in your stay. for starters when you’ve booked a stay with Couples a Dunn’s River Falls excursion is included. The next time I visit I’ll be sure to take advantage of that.

The views, the views, the views. Easily one of the most scenic resorts I’ve visited. Couples Tower Isle had beautifully picturesque views everywhere. From the balcony of our room to the breakfast buffet seating area. The property was breathtaking. Not to mention the views of the hotel from the famed Tower Isle.
The pictures here speak for themselves. I couldn’t capture a bad image here if I tried.

I absolutely love CTI. I was just there for my anniversary too! Hubs and I hope to go every year.
This is nice. Strangely enough, Couples is one of those iconic resorts I wanted to to go visit a few years ago but somehow it fell off the radar. Nice review, and happy anniversary!
It really does deserve its iconic status. I hope you get a chance to experience it soon. Thank you for the good wishes my anniversary was a few months back so this is a super late post. Thanks for stopping by!
