2021 Travelers' Choice Best of the Best
Playground to Hollywood celebrities in the 1950s, glamorous Couples Tower Isle exudes a chic sophistication perfectly balanced by a relaxed Caribbean sensuality. Perched on the lush terrain of Ocho Rios, Jamaica—the resort seduces with breathtaking sea views, a wide sandy beach and century-old palm trees. Discover the joys of snorkeling among the reefs, windsurfing on the waves, or sailing into the sunset on a catamaran, rum punch in hand. Intricate blue tile work and jade chaise lounges offset the striking white retro architecture. Luxurious rooms boast private ocean-breeze balconies. Whether being pampered in the Zen-inspired spa—recognized as "Best in the Caribbean" by Travel+Leisure—sipping cocktails at the piano bar or indulging in an exquisite meal alfresco, Couples Tower Isle creates countless intimate moments that inspire you to return again and again.

My husband and I travel a lot. We typically take 3-4 vacations a year and have been other Caribbean Islands, but we had yet to go to Jamaica. This was our favorite vacation yet! The people here are amazing. Everyone was friendly. The whole place was spotless. I even saw someone spraying down the walls and doorways. Some of the things I liked, didn't like or just some overall tips. The drinks seemed weak. I don't drink a lot and I wasn't even feeling them(this was after 4 drinks). Then we started asking for double alcohol and we defiantly started to feel them. The stuff they put into the mini fridge is strong too. They gave us whole bottles of alcohol for our fridge and it was all included. Almost everything is included. My husband did pay $50 to scuba dive which is extremely cheap. He loved the dive. We paid $10 a shirt to do the tye dye. Of course the gift shop charges We had a photoshoot the shoot was free but we paid $200 for a USB drive of our pictures. The cameraman was the best thing we did. So much fun. The guys on the boat were so much fun. I didn't like the glass bottom boat. Probably because the last one I was on (different island) they took us out into the ocean and fed sharks so that was amazing. This boat stayed close to shore and we saw some small fish and a shipwreck. The waters by the resort are choppy so the boat was doing a lot of rocking. Snorkeling was ok. If you have never been you will probably like it a lot. Again I've done it elsewhere that was a lot more exciting but I also paid $100 to do the far more exciting one.... So for a free deep sea snorkel this was really good. They took us right out to a reef. The water were choppy and that did make it harder to swim but you have a life vest. One of the guys out with us mist have had a panic attack out there. He kept trying to pull on my arm and dragging me under. I wasn't happy but Collin was amazing and got right over to him got him claim and back to the boat. Sailing was great. We went our with Tajh. He is a great guy we had a lot of fun. Teasheka in activities is amazing. (Sorry if I misspelt your name) She is fun, full of energy and gets everyone smiling Jerome was so welcoming as so many others were too, but we couldn't walk past him without him saying a big warm greeting. I hated the smell of the cleaning products (its COVID so they got to use what they got to use) but when we first got to our room I thought it smelt like mildew and was thinking "great this is going to be gross" but the smell went away quickly. It would come back after they cleaned the room but again it goes away fast. The maids are amazing. Our room was cleaned thoroughly once a day then when they came back for turn down service they did a quick spot clean. This was hands down the cleanest place I have stayed. The food was good. 8 Rivers was the best. Breakfast every morning was amazing. I did wish it started before 7:30. I know how crazy that sounds but the time change messes with you. I wish they had art on the hall walls if for nothing else than to dampen the sounds from the halls. The doors do close hard and drunk people are loud. The nude island was fun. They had games going on at the bar so you don't feel weird. Everyone is in the water having fun. It takes 2 hours to get there and 2 hours back to the airport. So that does take 4 hours out of your trip and this is the windy side of the island so the ocean is rough. You can ask the driver to stop to use the bathroom. After a long flight it was needed.

We've been to the resort 6 times, so we request the same room each time. It's a decent size room. Nice shower great closet! Beautiful view of the ocean! The staff!! Oh the staff....always asking how your stay is. What are you doing? Are you going to do xxx today? Where are you headed to?? See you when you come back. Somehow they remember and will ask how xxx was? The food....WOW!! If you have dietary concerns they'll figure something out. If you don't gain weight when you're there you didn't try enough.

I would give Couples Tower Isle 10 Stars if I could. I love this resort so much! The people here truly represent the warmth and spirit of Jamaica. The food is absolutely amazing - even the buffet. The beach - while small - is perfect. It is a GEM! We did not want to leave! Special Shout Out to the AMAZING Staff! Bellhops....Jermaine, Emorth, Kirk, Andrew Waiters.....Joel at Verandah Orlenga at 8 Rivers Collin in water sports Paulette and all the staff at check in, but especially ZHANIA who was my best friend there! She helped me track down my delayed bag from Delta and literally was so wonderful. She said she was going to cry when we left. I cannot brag enough on the staff at CTI. Amazing

I was absolutely blown away by CTI. My husband and I spent 6 nights to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. We booked a 1 bedroom suite and when we got there found out it was unavailable. They showed us two “downgraded” rooms and let us chose which one we wanted. The room we choose was still absolutely incredible with a perfect view and the most incredible shower overlooking the ocean. They gave us almost $500 in resort credit for the “downgrade” which allowed us to get a couples massage and private island dinner. It couldn’t have worked out better. This was the sole hiccup in our trip. Room: super clean, huge, breathtaking views. AMAZING HUGE shower where the cool ocean breeze comes in as you our showering. We spent A LOT of time hanging out in the shower. Bed was very very comfortable, selection of pillows was great. Big walk-in closet. A million towels. Only cons were inconsistent water pressure and poor TV reception at times but it’s an island! Who cares! I didn’t go to watch tv. I love that they sent us complimentary cheese plates and put flowers in our room on our anniversary. Beach/Resort: omg. The beauty of the mountains and beach is indescribable. We’re from Florida so we have no shortage or beautiful beaches but it doesn’t even touch the majesty of the clear blue Jamaican waters. The foliage and grounds were impeccably kept and we had a wonderful time just walking around and identifying different plants and flowers. The decor of the resort is chic and funky, I loved the art and overall retro vibe. Airy, elegant but not pretentious. It’s just so so pretty! There are cats that kind of roam around, which is so sweet. Also go visit the macaws near the spa! The one thing I noticed was the lack of MOSQUITOS!! I even brought spray because I was expecting them and they love me... not a single bite. Not sure if this is because it was pretty breezy our whole trip or because the resort sprays for them. I was soooooo happy that it wasn’t a feeding ground, we even slept with the windows open most nights. Tower Isle was our first “nude” experience and I’m so glad we did it. The island is breathtaking and no one cares to see your goods! It’s weird for about 3 minutes and then you get over it and realize how wonderful it is to chill in nature with everything god gave you. There are also plenty of shaded, private spots to sit. Food: I wasn’t sure what to expect as I had never been to an all inclusive but I can confidently say that nearly everything we ate was absolutely fantastic. We’re kind of tough critics when it comes to food and things were spot on. We loved that there was traditional dishes available at the patio. The fried snapper sandwich at the pool grill was so good we must’ve ordered it four times. The desserts... wow. The pastry chef(s) is truly talented. I cannot stop thinking Baked Alaska with thyme ice cream. We’ve always loved Caribbean flavors and seafood and every meal we got to experience them. Alcohol: to the review that said drinks are watered down: absolutely false. I got to the point where I had to ask bartenders to go light on their pours because I was trying to make it to dinner without being wasted, and I’m no lightweight. Great drinks, consistent, top shelf if you requested. I was not impressed by the house wine selections, but it was Frontera which is something I have no issue purchasing/drinking at home, so it was totally fine. You can call to request alcohol in your room and I love that they left a bottle of champagne almost every night we were there. Their pina coladas are ridiculously good too. 420 friendly: yes yes yes. Ask discreetly and you shall receive. A little high on prices compared to what we pay in the states but not a big deal. Papers and pipes are in the gift shop but lighters are hard to come by (matches are free). Just don’t be obnoxious about it, find a secluded place to toke and everything is gravy. Spa: would’ve loved to get other treatments but my massage was fantastic. Christine knew exactly where I was tight/sore without asking at all. Absolutely wonderful. She is so good at what she does. Spa is super quiet and peaceful, smells really good, love the tranquility pool and infused water (also available at the regular bars) Activities/entertainment: I’m the type of person that will lay on the beach doing nothing for 8 hours straight... my husband is not. There was PLENTY to do to the point where we ran out of time. Snorkeling was awesome, they dropped us over a shipwreck. Tie dye on the beach. Games at the pool. Climbing Dunn River Falls. Cooking class. Sailing. Piano bar was great. Lounging at the beach/pool/bar became what we did in between other activities! We had so much fun! Service: of course the service was top notch but some of the employees here are truly incredible people. I’m terrible with names but Nikesha (??) was our server one night at 8 Rivers and she was truly an angel.. my husband spilled a glass of wine everywhere and she was so gracious and helpful. The next morning we saw her at breakfast and she checked up on us, then told us how to make Ackee for when we got home. She was so sweet and great to talk to. The beautiful young woman with the long braids who I assume to be the activities director, she was a trip. Funny and fun to be around. So many people that work there were just warm, welcoming and wonderful. Please take some time to talk to them about their lives and family. I can’t say enough about my experience at CTI. It was romantic, adventurous, relaxing, pampering, delicious. Before we even left I was trying to figure ours when and how we could return ASAP. Sent from my iPhone

Coupes Tower Isle is an awesome location! My husband and I had the greatest time. The view is great, the place (rooms & resort) is clean, fresh, and upscale , but the best part were the people. They made us feel like royalty. They are so friendly, professional, helpful and gracious. The food was amazing, the entertainment was very enjoyable, the pools refreshing, the excursions exciting. But once again, the people won my heart and will be my sweetest memory. The best service I have ever had.
