This is one of the most highest rated and award winning resorts on the island of Jamaica. I had the pleasure of staying here in the first part of August 2007. As part of the Couples Resorts family it has extra inclusions that most resorts do not even come close to matching. Please look in the upper right hand corner of this page to see all of them.

This resort is cut right out of the gardens. Each room buildings in phase 1 and phase 2 of the resort are 2 to 3 stories tall. They have 8 to 12 rooms to a building with access to your room from the outside of the room block. A common misconception about these rooms is that they do not have air conditioning. You can open up the room to have a breeze however you can close it up and turn on the a/c. I strongly suggest spending the extra money to upgrade to the rooms in phase three known as the Great House. These rooms are in the Great house which consists of a lobby, a photo booth, a gift shop, 2 restaurants, an internet café, and the night club. My room was in the Great House and the night club did not bother me at all. I couldnt even hear it. They sound proofed that pretty well. In front of the great house is the new pool, with 2 adjacent Jacuzzi and a swim up bar. The beach grill is in this area as well. The reason why I say to upgrade to the rooms is because of the added amenities. You get a plasma screen TV, a mini bar and a couple of liquor bottles.

The atmosphere of this resort is very laid back. This is the place you go to relax. On the beach side of the resort you wont find people doing many activities other than at the water sports hut. However across the street from this resort they have a sports complex with tennis courts, jogging track, lap pool, gym, sauna, health bar and much more.

The dining options at this resort are a big part of what makes this resort so highly rated. They have two places that really stuck out for me. Feathers is their indoor, air conditioned, gourmet restaurant with a very romantic atmosphere. Lemon Grass is their Thai restaurant. Having been to Thailand and a huge fan of Thai cuisine I can say their menu is very authentic. This restaurant is in the main building of Phase one. It upstairs and most of the tables offer a great ocean view.

Reasons why you would book this resort: You are looking for a relaxing resort that is adults only. You are looking for a resort that has a lot of extras included. You are looking to stay at a resort that is very highly rated.

Reasons why you would not book this resort: You are planning to bring your kids. You are looking for a resort that is a bit more active (Couples Negril). You are looking for a resort that offers au natural sun bathing (Couples Sans Souci and Couples Ocho Rios).
