Embracing a casual yet chic style infused with pure island ambiance, each one offers a genuine, intimate and memorable experience.

Guests are always charmed by the warmth of the Caribbean people who are genuinely happy to greet you and ready to welcome you home to the beautiful islands of Jamaica or Barbados.
Kirk Bariffe or ‘Captain Kirk’
Kirk Bariffe or ‘Captain Kirk’ as he is more popularly known has been employed to one of the best all inclusive Caribbean resorts, Couples Tower Isle, since August 17, 1997. For him it seems like yesterday and not 16 years ago when he started working at Couples in the occupation of a bellman. Married with four kids, Kirk is extremely friendly and is often the first person to welcome you home on arrival to the resort (even if it’s your first visit – it’s considered home by many). A lover of all types of sports, he describes his team of coworkers - Byron, Emorth and Everol – as his family.
