Overview

Array of free amenities, including all meals and drinks, water sports equipment rentals, off-site excursions and more
Travelers with mobility issues may want to stay elsewhere due to the property's multiple staircases
Like Jamaica's three other Couples resorts, Couples Sans Souci boasts special amenities designed to cultivate romance. Guests heap praise on this adults-only Ocho Rios resort's attentive staff, sensual spa treatments and rejuvenating mineral springs, although some say the grounds' plethora of stairs can be exhausting to traverse at times. Others caution that the resort's evening entertainment can be occasionally heard inside the accommodations. Each of the 150 suites features blue and white decor, island-inspired artwork and a private balcony that overlooks the Caribbean Sea. Standard suite amenities include king-sized beds, iPod docking stations, minibars and Gilchrist & Soames toiletries. Steal away from your room and you'll find a host of daily activities for you and your special someone, from couples yoga to snorkeling to nature walks to au naturel sunbathing on one of two private beaches. Once you've worked up an appetite, dine at one of three on-site restaurants that serve international classics and Jamaican staples. And don't forget your dancing shoes: Nightly entertainment includes steel drum bands and reggae acts, not to mention the resort's seven lively bars. The property's all-inclusive rates cover all meals and drinks, water sports, evening activities, golf and tennis, plus excursions to popular locales like Dunn's River Falls & Park and Margaritaville.

This 35-acre ... all-inclusive resort has a lush natural setting filled with waterfalls, grottos, beaches, lakes, and jungles. It still has the features of a megaresort – three restaurants, four pools ... a spa, and tons of free activities – but it's one of the few large-scale resorts that manages to feel crowd-free and even intimate.

The smallest of the Couples resorts, with just 150 rooms, this adults-only, all-inclusive property is built on a cliff above a seaside cove in Ocho Rios. Rooms have a British colonial vibe with fretwork-railed terraces, and are brightened by white tile floors and blue-and-white striped upholstery.

This all-inclusive whose name means 'no worries' in French is 'a tropical oasis' on 35 acres atop the cliffs of Jamaica's emerald coast. British colonial-inspired suites offer Caribbean views and Gilchrist & Soames toiletries, and are decorated with intricate latticework and white woven furnishings.

The accommodations in the pink clifftop buildings that are frosted with white balconies are breezy and comfortably modern. For ultimate romance, there's also the Hibiscus Cottage on the property's eastern edge, where there's a private outdoor infinity-edge whirpool and a tub for two.

This classy all-inclusive encourages you to check your cares at the entrance and indulge in soul-nurturing pampering. Rooms – all suites – are soothing, with tile floors, plush linens, large balconies, and a style more Mediterranean than Caribbean.
