I found this review a little confusing. They had a great time, food was good, staff exceptional and beach beautiful. Right there to me is value. Being in the industry I have been to luxury AI's, most of the luxury is in the looks, marble, huge pools, big resorts-BIG! I have also stayed at luxury resorts that are not all inclusive, what I have found over and over is top notch service at Couples(all 4), excellent food(all 4) beautiful beaches(Negril) great beaches(Ocho). I stress to clients these are not glitz, marble, fancy rooms or huge pools, what you do have is the thing I call "Funky Caribbean Soul" . At times when I have stayed at these other luxury AI's I kinda forget where I am, Mexico? Jamaica? Antigua?
I have also compared the price for clients, and the value of Couples certainly out weighs other resorts. If you are a diver you are paying aywhere from $60-$100 a dive per person, Catamaran cruise will set you back at least $100 per couple, and you usually have to leave the resort to catch it. Snorkleing at most other resorts will set you back $70.00.
Again if the reviewer looked at all the pictures and the other reviews it is made very clear these resorts are not "Mega Marble Mazes Of Glitz"
I'm flad they had a good time, although I'm not surprised.
We all find our Home away from Home and this was not for them. I hope future travels for them are filled with happiness and beauty.
