    Default Do shuttles run between the Couples Resorts?

    We are staying at Couples Swept Away in a few weeks and I was wondering if there is a shuttle where you can enjoy one of the other Couples Resorts Pool/Restaurants etc - I think that Couples Negril might be close? Can you walk along Seven Mile Beach to Couples Negril from Couples Swept Away? Cant find this info anyhwere and have stayed in other All-Inclusive Resorts where they offer this. Thanks!

    From the FAQs:

    Can I visit other Couples Resorts? (Trading Places program)

    Romance Rewards members will now be offered the privilege of complimentary day passes to a nearby Couples Resort. We're calling the program "Trading Places".

    In Negril, Trading Places is available between Couples SweptAway and Couples Negril.

    In Ocho Rios, Trading Places is extended between Couples Sans Souci and the NEW Couples Tower Isle.

    Here are the rules and conditions for the new Romance Rewards Trading Places:

    1. Trading Places is restricted to Romance Rewards members only. Since it may take several days for new Romance Rewards member account to be activated, only Romance Rewards members who have an active account upon arrival at your resort are eligible.

    2. Trading Places is limited to a maximum of 10 couples per day on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays only.

    3. Romance Rewards members must sign up for Trading Places with Guest Relations 24 hours in advance. The sign up is only available while you are on property. Romance Rewards members may only sign up for Trading Places once per stay.

    4. Complimentary transfers from your resort to the nearby resort will depart at 9:45 am and will depart from the nearby resort back to your resort at 4:00 pm.

    5. Should you decide to leave the nearby resort prior to 4:00 pm, transfer costs will be at your expense. If you miss the 4:00 pm transfer, the nearby resort reserves the right to charge the current day pass rate.

    6. Activities at the nearby resort which require reservations such as excursions and scuba are not part of the day pass privilege. Spa facilities may be utilized subject to availability; however no coupons or credits from your resort may be used at the nearby resort.

    Couples Negril is, indeed, only a couple of miles up the road from SweptAway. In fact, you pass it as you enter the Negril "strip", and may even stop at CN to drop off passengers to that resort.

    If you are a member of Couples Resorts Romance Rewards program, you can spend a day at the sister resorts at Negril and Ocho Rios (SweptAway/CN & CTI/CSS).

    There are NOT shuttles that go between resorts simply to use them at your whim... this ain't the "S" chain (thank heavens!).

    While I share your general disdain for all that is the Evil Empire, it's the one aspect of how they do business that I wish Couples would emulate. I've never understood why our beloved is so restrictive with its shuttle policy. If it's due to financial reasons, ie, they would incur additonal costs which could impact the $$ they otherwise apply to their servies and facilities, then I at least understand that.

    But if expanding their shuttle service wouldn't place a hurt on their expenses to any significant degree, then I'm all for it. I think it would be fantastic to have greater access between CTI & CSS in Ocho Rios, and CN & CSA in Negril. I mean, why not, where's the downside from a customer standpoint?

    Reading is fundamental. It's just that for some, it's more mental than fun.
