My husband and I will be going to Couples Negril on 2/4 to celebrate our first anniversary. We'll be staying in a deluxe ocean view room.
Our travel agent initially recommended and booked us for another competing hotel. However after learning about CN's Travel+Leisure award, I became intrigued and proceeded to check EVERY travel review on the web- Trip Advisor, Expedia, Travelocity, Frommers, Fodors, Caribbean Magazine and travel agency reviews (in person and on the web).
I was impressed by the consistency of the CN reviews and the passion and enthusiasm of previous travelers.
Early this morning, I called my travel agent and told her to cancel my other reservation and book us at Couples Negril. Although we paid a hefty penalty, I am so glad that we did!!
We are so looking forward to our trip. Does anyone have any suggestions on "must-dos" or tips regarding the resort? It's our first time to Jamaica and a couples resort.
I'll be sure to share details of our trip when we get back. I hope to add to all of your positive experiences.
I am SO excited for you!! You are going to love it. Don't worry about trying to do things, just take in the atmosphere and go with it. The only time I pulled myself off the beach or away from the pool or hot tubs was to go on the Catamaran cruise and snorkeling.(I highly reccomend these.)
Can't wait to hear about your trip.
Try new things; food, drink, and activities. The Cat Cruise is fun, the "Glass Bottomed Boat" ride was more informative. Don't miss Lobster (Friday) Night. Eat at least 1 meal at Lychee (our favorite). Bring some nice clothes for evening wear. Plan on spending a lot of time on the beach relaxing. Then have fun and go wild.
We just returned from CN on Monday. We absolutely loved it, had an oceanview room and it was definitely worth the extra $. Don't miss the snorkelling trips.....we went almost every day. Have a great time.
