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.

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!!!

This was our 6th stay at Swept Away. We had requested a couple of room numbers in advance but didn't get either- even though when we checked one of them was empty and had just been cleared ready for new guests, We did not complain as we still got a nice private Atrium Room but sadly no sea view although we do understand that requests are not guaranteed, The shower was good- powerful and never a lack of hot water, the bed was comfortable, the in-room bar was replenished daily and we had no problems with the room- love the Atrium rooms because of the huge verandahs with large sofa and hammock. Restaurants all quite good- Feathers seemed better this year- food and service great. We were not so keen on the changes at Lemon grass which is now 'Oriental' instead of Thai- the food was not as good generally as previous stays. Food in Patois Patios was ok but some of the serving staff in there seemed very unhappy- just going through the motions- however two of the guys were very good and showed lots of personality. Is it me or has Couples lost the point that it is a couples hotel? There were several large groups of people staying whilst we were there and when trying to have an intimate romantic meal it is very difficult if you are sitting next to a large noisy table! I think parties should be restricted to a maximum of 4 people in the a la carte restaurants at least. There were times when it was almost impossible to hear ourselves speak. Likewise at the beach bonfire- on the first Wednesday there was a large group of really loud people who spoiled the ambiance completely. The beach at the resort was as beautiful as ever-really clean and well kept- however there is a huge problem with people reserving sun loungers and cabanas- they must get up at 5.00a.m.- This needs to be addresses- We checked at 10.30p.m. one night on our way back from dining and some cabanas already had towels on them ready for the next day! We are early risers- on the beach by 7.30 and there were very few sunbeds available each morning. The beach water sports team were great- can not fault them. Also all of the scuba dive team apart from the senior dive instructor- I (not my husband) had a legitimate reason to make a complaint about him 2 holidays ago (approx 4 years) and this man still bears a grudge now- he is ignorant beyond belief- totally ignoring my husband throughout our stay even though he was doing 2 dives per day and when the ladder was up on the dive boat one morning because the sea was a little rough my husband asked him to lower it so he could get onto the boat with his heavy equipment and this man turned his back on him and ignored him- one of the other guests actually had to lower the ladder and was really shocked at the member of staff's behaviour.... this leaves a really bitter taste and the hotel should address rudeness to paying guests. Will we return? Big question- I will certainly look and compare with alternative properties on our next Jamaica holiday- something I have never felt the need to do before.
Wonderful stay. Best place we have ever been

After several trips to Mexico, we traveled to Jamaica for the first time last May 2014. We arrived on a Saturday, and thanks to the reviews on TA and on the Couples forum, we also booked Club Mobay. I would not have wanted to stand in the line for immigration, which would have been at least an hour. We arrived at CSA about 1:30. Our room was not ready yet, so we grabbed lunch and looked around a bit. Our room was ready at 3:00. Hubby and I had booked an atrium suite. We loved our room, especially the veranda. We spent a lot of time on the veranda in the mornings before breakfast and before dinner in the evenings. We loved the beach and never had trouble finding a shady spot. The food was good. The people were excellent. I wish I couple remember any names, but I can't nearly a year later. We hope to go again next year. This year we are going to Cancun (Live Aqua) with friends and they couldn't make their budget meet CSA's prices. I dream about that beach to this day!
Amazing - loved it

We have returned recently from 11 nights at this beautiful hotel. When we arrived we were put in the Great House Suites which were very nice, spacious and clean rooms. My husband is a very light sleeper and there was a buzz in the room which meant he could not get off to sleep - he thought it was the fridge so he unplugged it. Sadly that was not the cause so after having a poor nights sleep he said he would walk over to reception and see if we could be moved. The staff were fantastic - they said not a problem and that they could move us to room 5109 - when we moved our belongings over to this room - we were thrilled as we had a fantastic view of the sea and no buzz! So the holiday then really started as my husband was able to sleep and really start to relax. The Beach was beautiful - the only problem we had on the whole holiday was the fact that the early towel crew always managed to get the shade - I don't consider 8:30 am early to go down to the beach and would hope that I could get some form of shade at that time of day - unfortunately I would say that we only managed to get shade on about 30% of our holiday. Saturdays was a good day as it was a big change over day for those from America. The craft classes were excellent and I would like to give a special thanks to all those people who run the classes - cannot remember your names, but the man who did the hats, the stone painting man, the bead making man, Shernice trainee entertainment (excuse spelling) tye dying class. This girl was amazing I went to her class on my first Saturday and she remembered my name throughout the holiday - always asking how I was by name - she was full of fun and a pleasure to meet. In fact all the staff were great - always smiling and very helpful. Food - WOW - we never had a bad meal - the food was great - loved going to Feathers restaurant. Patios and Palms were excellent too. Mainly ate at Sea Grape at lunch time - and a couple of times went to cafe at Great House end for Jerk chicken - loved the taco's here. We also went on two trips which was organised by the tour operator in the Great House - they were both excellent. One negative I will add is when we were collected at Montego Bay - our driver drove so fast that it scarred the living daylights out of me and most of the people in our little bus. He kept overtaking in most dangerous situations and to be honest my husband and I did wonder if we would reach the hotel alive!! I was then slightly put off about going on the trips as i thought if I get that mad driver again I won't be able to go but the drivers on both trips were brilliant and also the driver on the return journey to the airport. I am sure the management of Couples must know who this mad driver is - and I think it might be a good idea if you take him off of collections from the airport! Would we go again? YES Thank you Couples Swept Away for a fantastic holiday

Reviews March 7 to 14, 2015 Positif: Very nice beach, beautiful water Very good food Room are very clean, but need a bit of refreshing Water mat are great Negative: Find this no to convenient to have to made reservation at restaurant and plus your are limited Personal are not the greatest, they think they know everything but come back with the wrong drinks There is a road at the back of the resort, they should at least put a wall for the sound. Need more little sun huts (palapase) There is a lot of smokers maybe put an area for them, so it doesn't bother the others No information was given to us at arrival (just our card room) No informaion on activity (either BBQ on the beach etc...) The pool where not too inviting (lots of dirth in it) We are at our 24th trip down south......so for the price of this resort.....not worth it at all better places else where.
Couldn't ask for more!

Winter in the midwest has been frigid, and there is no more wonderful escape than a beautiful sunny beach vacation in lush surroundings with fabulous service. Couples Swept Away exceeded our expectations in fulfilling these wishes. We had a beachfront veranda room on the ground floor, so in 10 steps off our veranda we were on the beach. What could be more perfect? The reviews on this website had some complaints of pedestrian traffic for these rooms, but we found this to be very light, and who minds a little people watching, anyway? Our room was private enough because the sheer or opaque curtains could be pulled, and we were far enough from the walk way to be relatively anonymous. So, no problem. Most amazing were the sunsets! I think this resort has the most perfect position for the ideal sunset in all of Jamaica, at least in feb/march. People on this website also complained a bit about merchants on the beach. We found this to be a very minimal issue-- security was excellent generally. The staff were very attentive about any one of these beach strollers being even the least bit inconsiderate- and in our experience they never were. So, no problem. There were some complaints about drinks and the quality of the champagne-- this too was not a problem. The champagne is good enough, and for the drinks, if you want one stronger, just say so-- the bartenders aim to please! In fact, everyone aims to please! The waitstaff were attentive, friendly and provided excellent caring service. The entertainers were fun and personable, loved to party and added a special warmth to the week. Our snorkeling trip was the best we ever had because Jason was a terrific guide. And the catamaran sunset trip is not to be missed: music, rum punch, breathtaking landscapes, and good people. What could be better? We had great meals most nights (and days)- better than some of the supposedly gourmet resorts in the Maya Riviera. I have to admit I was surprised that more had not been said about the sports facilities. These were terrific! A lovely lap pool, tennis lessons every day if you want, really decent courts, we were blown away... ahhhh...I get it, we were swept away! The only thing missing ever was a little dance music around happy hour. One or two evenings a week it would be great to have an hour or so of dance music (of various genres) piped in around one of the bars-- just to get things energized a bit. This might not appeal to everyone, but if it was short-lived, predictable and the genre varied, it could be very fun. Bottom line- this place is fantastic. We will be back and in the meantime will savor the memories of a first rate vacation! Ya mon!
