Just returned from our 3rd trip to Swept Away. Honeymoon, 5yr anniversary and now 10yr. People ask us, "of all the beautiful places to see in the world, why do you keep going back? Why not go somewhere else?" I say, (and I think a commercial for Jamaica similarly says...) "If you go....you'll know." I dont even know where to begin with this place. 1st of all, all these negative nitpicking complainers I read on Trip Advisors website would find fault in heaven. That's just my opinion.
I'm a food snob, and the food here is second to none; choices to suit everyone, from late night burgers and fries, to the most exquisitely prepared fine dining.
The beach...well there is none better. I didn't like the horse guy burying the poop right on the beach, but aside from that...simply perfect.
The nightlife? Live music, beach bonfire, nightclub (we are not clubbers, but spent most late nights here, having a blast with staff and new friends), jacuzzis with no closing time, shows, late night eatery? C'mon people, what more could you want? You want a wild crazy meat-market nightlife scene? Dont go to Swept Away. We have partied with the best of them, and we had a fabulous time every night.
The service? They treat you like royalty, is all I can say.
Drinks/bartenders? Most of them comedians as well, but I am a former bartender/bar owner, and I can find no fault in any of them, but overall they were all stellar.
Bugs? They sprayed our room whenever we asked, within minutes. They gave us mosquito candles every night. We didn't wear bug spray one night and ended up with quite a few bites. This is my only complaint of the entire vacation.
I will recommend this resort over any other for a honeymoon, anniversary, or just a getaway. You will fall in love with it and want to go nowhere else. I guarantee this. And if you don't reconnect and fall in love all over again, you probably need a divorce.
