I will return for my tenth stay at CSA this December. The location and beach are beautiful. The grounds are covered with palms and the serpentine pathways through the greenery belies the fact that there are a lot of people on the site. Staff are friendly and helpful. I always look forward to meeting staff members who have been at CSA since my first visit. They still remember me. I enjoy the whole experience from socializing over a breakfast of whatever I feel like eating, to the scuba diving on a beautiful new boat. The dive staff is experienced and makes every dive fun and safe for beginners as well as interesting for experienced divers. I enjoy the casual luxury of the place, with no need to dress up in the evenings and the staff being friendly and helpful while not intruding on the experience. The weight room is first class and accommodates the casual work out to some very heavy lifting. Donovan, the supervisor, is a knowledgeable quiet man who can give every assistance with your workout or answer any questions you may have about your fitness plan. Donovan, thanks for helping me to my heaviest lifts while working with you in Jamaica. I enjoy the wide variety of food and have never gone hungry at CSA !!! The tennis courts are well kept and tennis is part of what makes CSA a destination resort. Night life is as varied as the menu, from piano bar to the house band led by the talented Lincon, to visiting singers and performers. Every night different and enjoyable. The rooms are simple, clean spacious. Hats off to Couples Swept Away, my happy place.
A Perfect Honeymoon!

We took our Honeymoon at Couples Swept Away in Negril Jamaica and it was a week to remember. The facility offered everything from health and fitness, luxury spa, night life, entertainment, water and beach activities, excursions, and relaxation. It was a wonderful mix of romance, fun and socializing. The age groups was from 20's to 50's and all guests we met were enjoying their stay. We never heard a single couple with a complaint about the facility. The beach is clean, well groomed and warm as a bath tub. There is drink service to the beach and lots of lounge chairs and floaters for the ocean. If you are looking for a tan there's tons of room but lots of shade for those who prefer to read or just relax. The many restaurants offered wonderful flavours and variety every day. You were never tired of the large buffet but you still had great options for al a cart with the other restaurants. There are two finer dining al a cart restaurants so bring at least two nice outfits so you can celebrate in style. There is limited beef choices but tons of chicken, fish, seafood, pork and vegetarian options. We also participated in the private dinner on the beach (for an additional fee) and loved the evening would recommend to all. The staff were amazing and the hospitality flowed as well as the free drinks. There was never a request they didn't try to accommodate and they never met you without a smile. We met many guests that were return visitors and we will definitely join the group of repeaters. A Honeymoon to remember. Thank you to Couples Swept Away and Westjet Vacations!

An extraordinary staff, always eager and well disposed to help. The sports and spa facilities are excellent and the best in Jamaica. For an all inclusive, it is very satisfying that they don't cut corners, the food is 5 star, excellent quality liquor, bar service, even on the beach!! The long beach and the crystal clear water was a perfect scene. Great entertainment, morning and evening at the Palms, great effort put out by the entire staff to stage the Friday night Beach party. Even at 98% capacity, the layout and facilities are such that you never feel crowded, never fighting for a good spot on the beach. Was our second time back, going back next year with friends. Thank you swept away for another wonderful experience. Anthony and Mary

Couples Swept Away was a perfect honeymoon! It was exactly what we were looking for. Lots of pools to find a quite spot, wasn't too big of a resort, not too busy, no big party groups there, activities aimed at couples & honeymooners were a lot of fun. Location was good - 1.5hrs away from airport. Most off resort activities required a little drive - horseback riding only 20mins away. Zipline, however, was about a 2hr drive. Downtown shopping area only a 10min drive if you wanted to buy coffee or booze off resort (we did, big savings). Staff very laid back and easy going. It's a no-tipping, no-cash resort, which is nice, but takes the bartering out of the equation if you're into that. We would go back, for sure. There was an issue to sewer smells on the resort throughout our stay. Might of been related to Hurricane Sandy that was the week before. There was also 2 male bathrooms I noted to have their floor drains back up. Might be an issue that's resolved now, but the smell wasn't pleasant.
We loved it and are already planning our return!!

We have travelled for years and have stayed at numerous all inclusives in Mexico as well as the Dominican Republic and Cuba. We have also tried top notch cruises and have found Couples Swept away by far the best. First of all the beach - the beach is amazing and goes on for miles. Than there is the staff - who were all extremely welcoming. As to the food, it was very good and the selection of liquors varied and top notch. The exercise facility alone is worth the trip with a lap pool, tennis courts as well as tennis clinics, yoga, pilates, jogging track, basketball court and on and on it goes. All activities are included - water skiing, a sunset cruise, snorkelling in either day light or at night. You can't fit it all in in just a short week. We have already decided to return. Next year we will forgo the beach front verandah suite- as all the rooms are nice -and spend the money on a longer stay.

My wife & I spent two amazing weeks at Couples Swept Away in Negril in Aug 2011. We have never seen a beach so beautiful or water so crystal blue in our lives. The staff at CSA were truly amazing, always smiling & always willing to offer advice or assistance if needed. The Hotel grounds were great, very tropical & lush, the work out facilities were by far the best we?ve ever experienced at a hotel. The restaurants were very good & offered a wide variety of dining options. If I had to pick one thing that put Couples Swept Away above any other hotel we stayed at in the past it would have to be all the inclusions. Everything from catamaran cruises & scuba diving to the strict no tipping policy truly helped make our holiday one of the most relaxing getaways we?ve ever been on!
Yea mon, it's amazing!!

Negril was a trip that we will not forget! The people, the beaches, the water, the SMILES!! They have a way of life that we all should consider in the way that they are so relaxed and are so happy!! The beaches and water were like those that you see in the corona commercials!! The red stripe cold and always ready for you!! We fell in love with the jerk chicken so much that when we got home... We went and bought a smoker to make our own little piece of JAMAICA!! We will be back... Oh yea mon!!!

Room: We had an ocean veranda suite, and it was wonderful. There was a large bed with a multitude of pillows, an open shower with plenty of water pressure (although the shower did drain very slowly), daily housekeeping and turn-down service, the inclusive mini bar was stocked daily to our liking, and all floors swept and mopped daily. Two white resort bath robes were in the closet, along with an umbrella for rainy weather, and a safe for valuables. Two French doors opened out onto the patio where we had a direct view of the ocean, as well as a short walk to the beach. The room was relatively modern, but heard that several couples had issues with keeping their clocks set to the proper time. Oh well, it's vacation, who cares what time it is? Food: What can you say? The food here is AMAZING! Whether you are getting a cheeseburger, grilled cheese, fries, a red snapper sandwich or onion rings at the swim-up bar, or a four-course meal at Feather's (reservations required), the food is nothing less than top-notch. We preferred having breakfast each morning at The Palms (buffet) so we could try our favorites and many local Jamaican dishes. Syrups are not just syrups, but have apples, pineapple, or bananas in them. Tons of fresh fruit, omelettes or waffles made to order, and a large pastry/bread assortment. Desserts are divine, especially the hot fried banana fritters served with cinnamon/sugar, caramel and homemade ice cream! OMG...heaven! If you go home hungry, it will be your own fault! We do wish that breakfast started earlier than 7:30 a.m. as we are early risers. It would also help when you have an early check-out so you can get a good breakfast before you leave. Alcohol: It's included, and it's not watered down. My husband drank strictly Jack Daniels on the rocks the entire week, and I spent my time trying as many frozen alcoholic drinks as possible -- finally settling on Snake Eyes. Dangerous since it tastes like a milkshake!! Bartenders are friendly and knowledgeable, especially Curtis at the pool bar! That man could make a drink with a smile and knew how to keep the crowd hanging around and having a good time. The Beach: The sand is raked daily by hand, and the water like turquoise glass. We spent nearly every day in the water or relaxing on a lounge chair by the water. Unfortunately, local vendors harass you to buy their items and you have to keep telling them no (or buy something). They aren't allowed to go up into the resort, so if you want to keep their sales gimmicks at bay, sit up closer to the resort. Those folks who dragged chairs down to the edge of the water were bothered more than most, but resort security did keep them moving on their way and supervised most sales to ensure things went well. We compared the Couples beach to the Beaches resort next door, and the Couples beach was immaculate, while the Beachers beach had standing rancid water and wasn't very clean. Even a Beaches security guard called the standing water "the lazy river." We snorkeled in the swimming area and found small shells, some star fish, and even a sting ray! Inclusives: Snorkeling we didn't do in the boot, just in the swimming area. They do have night snorkeling. We also didn't scuba dive, but were more content to just hang out at the resort. We did take the catamaran on the sunset booze cruise which was so much fun! We met lots of great people that we have stayed in contact with. The only down-side to the cruise was the resort lady in charge of the cruise they called "Mama" decided to also try to sell us sarongs. Really? We get harassed all day long on the beach and how a resort person is doing it, too? Not sure if she was supposed to or not, but it wasn't cool. We opted out of the glass bottom boat tour because we'd done it before at 2 other Couples resorts, but it's always neat! My husband played horseshoes and bocce ball. Entertainment: The evening entertainment really wasn't our cup of tea. We LOVED, LOVED, LOVED the bonfire one evening on the beach! It was huge and the perfect romantic way to end an evening curled up on lounge chairs together watching the flames. There was a wonderful steel drum group and we were hoping to really experience Jamaican music, but they instead played American music (Lady Gaga, etc.) which wasn't what we'd hoped for. We are there for the local experience and it seems some of the entertainment is too Americanized. After days of food, alcohol, sunshine and ocean, we always seem to go to bed pretty early, too! Service: The best. Everyone is helpful, nice, kind, and smiling. They go out of their way to help, and we cannot wait to return! Did like that we could go to the front desk the night before we left to settle up charges made to our room (gift shop purchases and massage) so we didn't have to do it rushed the next morning when we left. We always stay in August as the rates are better, the resort not crowded, and everything seems to be even more relaxed than usual.

So this was my second trip to Jamaica. Other time went to Iberostar in Montego Bay. I liked this better, although hotel room was nicer at adults only Iberostar. Checkin was fairly easy after a hour or so Van ride from airport. Hotel is very open, Jamaican feel. Nothing special about lobby. Rooms were nice with nice deck. Clean but a little aged. Now, beach was very nice. They had they great cushions on chairs that acted like floats. All hotels should have this. Beach bars were very nice, some drinks quite strong. Beach sales people were watched by patrolling guards so felt quite safe and not super hasseled. Restaurants buffets were good for breakfast, beach and buffets for lunch, great martini bar, and restaurants were good. There was one restaurant where men must wear pants. Returning guests get quite a few perks, ie spa treatment special dinner etc. spa was very relaxing and reasonable for resort. Fitness center was nice open aired. Booze snorkeling cruise was also good plus a number of non motorized free stuff. I had friends with us that have been numerous times.
Have you vacationed with us before?
We'd love to know what you think.
