We had an amazing week in paradise! We're thankful, because the former Breezes Rio Bueno (Grand Lido Braco) closed, that we found Couples Swept Away... and we were truly swept away! The people, the facility, the gardens, the food, top shelf drinks and the amazing Negril white sand beach! We walked every day - after our room service coffee... after our own personal yoga on the beach. Then we enjoyed the best breakfast buffet - with smiling, helpful servers. We did try Patois for breakfast one day since I needed to have the banana stuffed french toast - worth it!!! Lunch was at the grill everyday for some great jerk chicken - what a great venue right with ocean front seating. We ate at Lemongrass twice - so good! Patois also great for their dinner service and food! Feathers once was also good - just not our favorite.
A special thank you to the crew at the beach bar - the green flag service rocked! Michelle, Cindy, Keville - your Rum Punches and Dirty Bananas were the best - and thanks for the special fruit punches!!! We are ready to make our reservations for next year - for a beachfront v.s. - we loved the location - sleeping to the sound of the waves - waking up on the beach (literally) and enjoying the sunset from our verandah! We couldn't have asked for anything more - oh, wait - and we won some money in the casino! And we loved a little of Ultimate Chocolate at the piano bar.
Our favorite thing was.... everything! My wife and I travel twice a year - we work hard to "play hard." Our winter Jamaica vacation is our chance to get away from the cold of the northeast and VACATE! The sun, the beach, the people made this one of the best vacations we have ever had - thank you Couples Swept Away!
