Guest Spotlight Series: Mr. & Mrs. Clemons

Hi Couples family,

If you are like many of our guests right now, you were affected by a massive blizzard over the weekend and are most likely daydreaming of sunshine and smiles from Jamaica.

In light of the blistery weather, we are featuring a couple from Minnesota for our Guest Spotlight this month in hopes to help thaw out our guests who are away from their Jamaican home this winter.

Read full spotlight on Sara Brainard Clemons and Jim Clemons from Woodbury Minnesota below. Hope you two can make it back home to Couples Resorts very soon!

Carrie: How many times have you been to Couples Resorts, and which properties?
The Clemons Family: Once to Sans Souci and 5 trips to Swept Away with our 6th booked. 

Carrie: How has Couples played a role in your personal love story?
The Clemons Family: We were married at Swept Away in 2004 and it has become our very special place on the planet we most love to visit. We also renewed our vows last year for our 10th anniversary. Jim and I only see each other on weekends because of our jobs at the postal service, so our vacations are extra special. 

Carrie: What are the top three pieces of advice you would give to a first-time guest at Couples?
The Clemons Family: Take the resort tour as it is pretty big. Don't over plan activities as a big part of your vacation should be to relax on that world class beach! Don't party too much. Hangovers are no fun on vacation! 

Carrie: In your opinion, what makes Couples so unique?
The Clemons Family: Between the gorgeous surroundings, great food, fun and plentiful activities, and nice staff, Couples has it all. Its not perfect but in our experience, it is pretty darn close. 

Carrie: In a single word, describe what Couples means to the two of you.
The Clemons Family: Love

Carrie: Which staff members or fellow guests do you most look forward to seeing when you return?
The Clemons Family: We've met some awesome people at Couples Swept Away such as Jordan and Sarah Svoboda. We have come to know Jami and Cody Wood through the message board and hopefully someday we can coordinate a trip to hang out again.

Carrie: Fill in the blank: Our ideal day at Couples consists of _______________
The Clemons Family: We always order coffee and pastries for our "pre breakfast " and watch the resort wake up. Hit the Palms or Patios for some eggs and then hit the beach. We will spend most of our time at the beach but love to walk and shop along Seven Miles beach. We'll hit the water sports hut and go for a kayak or stand up paddleboard. Floating in the ocean on the mats is one of our favorite activities. The catamaran cruise and sitting on the beach and taking in the sunset is a must-do. Dinner at one of the fine restaurants and maybe a nightcap at the martini bar. 

Thank you for offering to be a part of our spotlight, Clemons family! If you or someone you know would like to be featured as part of our Guest Spotlight Series, please email me at
