Today I toured the two Couples Resorts in Ocho Rios, Couples Tower Isle and Couples San Souci.
These resorts are very different, but equally beautiful.
I was warmly greeted at San Souci. The lobby is bright and cheerful with lush tropical views to the sea below. The resort is built into a cliff, so if you choose this resort, be prepared to walk up and down lots of steps. The resort is already lovely, but they are undergoing some renovations and will be updating their rooms. These changes will certainly add to the charm and ambiance. There is an entire section of the property with a beach, pool, bar, etc for nude sunbathing as well.
If you prefer to sunbathe in your swimsuit, the main beach is very private. In fact, you feel like you are on your own little corner of paradise or your own deserted island. I was also surprised by the size if the resort (as in the number of a acres on which it sits). I was also surprised by the lily pond. There were countless turtles and it seemed like a tranquil alternative to the beach. The lush tropic landscaping and scenery reminded of Hawaii.
Tower Isle is just five minutes down the road. I was immediately struck by the incredible breeze and marvelous vistas you encounter as soon as you enter the open-air lobby. The resort was the place to be in the 1950s and it still maintains that vintage charm.
There are two pools, the more active pool and the quieter pool (which feature the iconic diving platform waterfall). There is a nice stretch of beach with many water sports. If you choose to partake in au natural sunbathing, there is a small boat that will transport you to the island, just across the cove.
I really liked the outdoor dining here as well- great way to enjoy tasty cuisine and beautiful scenery.
I will also add that in addition to abundant activities, scuba, Dunn’s River Falls excursion and more, these Couples Resorts have really high quality food and drinks even the cheeses and fruits were superior to many other all-inclusives. Truly stupendous!
