Four Swimming Pools
Enjoy a dip in one of our swimming pools. Surrounded by palm trees and chaise lounges, our pools overlook the Caribbean Sea and beautiful white sand beach. Swim up to the bar at the Main Pool or Sunset Beach and enjoy a cool cocktail.
Three Jacuzzis, including one tucked just a few feet from the Main Pool, invite couples to relax and rejuvenate in a sun-splashed setting.
Full of silky mineral waters once thought to have healing powers, this pool sits behind a natural grotto that was once home to Charlie, an ancient sea turtle.
Mineral Spring Pool
Soothe away every stress in our beautiful natural mineral spring pool, which is filled with water from one of the resort's several natural mineral springs. Secluded by the spa area overlooking the ocean, this is hydotherapy at its best.

Dive into a world of wonder with the exceptional scuba diving program at Couple Resorts, Jamaica. Known as a diving paradise, the Caribbean offers underwater adventures not to be missed.
Explore gorgeous Jamaican reefs—such as “Shark Reef,” “Coral Garden,” and “Fantasy Reef”—where tunnels and caves beckon with bioluminescent displays and coral formations enchant with their colorful intricacy.
During day dives, dolphins, trumpet fish, and sea turtles delight, while nurse sharks and barracuda make a striking impression. The night dives reveal another spectacle—graceful octopi sidle along, moray eels swim in pairs, spotted drum fish and stingrays pass by within inches, while other colorful creatures of the night come out of hiding.
Certified Divers: We are pleased to offer our certified guests a deep dive in the morning and a shallow dive in the afternoon. Reef destinations depend on weather and water conditions. On Saturdays, we offer a two-tank dive in the morning. The popular night dives are offered for a charge of $50. Certified PADI divers enjoy a complimentary dive once per day. A second daily dive is subject to availability. We suggest upgrading your certification with our PADI instructors by taking an Advanced Diving Course for an additional charge.
Uncertified Divers: All non-certified divers are invited to participate in a complimentary Resort Course and one introductory dive. Additional non-certified dives are $50 per person. The Resort Course is offered Monday through Friday at 9:00 am. We ask interested guests to sign-up one day in advance. Please note, this is not a PADI certification course.
All Divers: Please review the medical questionnaire . Complete this form if you have a medical condition that may require a doctor's waiver. Make sure to get the appropriate waiver before arriving at the resort (the form must be stamped by the physician / medical facility. You must bring the original form—faxes and photocopies cannot be accepted).
Equipment & Lessons: Supervised by our friendly certified PADI instructors, every dive is customized to give each guest the opportunity to see the range of sea life that makes the Caribbean such a popular diving destination. Group dives include no more than 2 novices under the supervision of at least one PADI instructor. One-on-one instruction is available, especially for higher dive certification levels. All equipment is fitted individually to each guest. Couples Resorts uses a certified nitrox blender, making our blend of oxygen more comfortable and allowing for longer dives.
The state-of-the-art dive boats and equipment are continuously monitored and updated, providing an uncompromising standard of safety for divers of every level. Consequently, Couples Swept Away is distinguished as a 5-star PADI Certified National Geographic Dive Center in the Caribbean, while all other Couples Resorts are fully PADI Certified.
