Melissa visits Couples Negril and RIU Tropical Bay, Jamaica

On this same trip, I had the opportunity to visit a couple other resorts as well.
Here are my trip reports for them…
Couples Negril was a beautiful resort.  This resort reminded me a lot of Sandals Negril.  They cater to adult only couples, and upscale service.  The overall feel of this resort was much smaller, there are 234 rooms.  Each of the beach and pool chairs have a floatie.  You can take your floatie in the pool or into the ocean, and it’s fabulous.  There are more than enough chairs for the entire resort, so you never have to race to get a chair.  I love that.
We were given a walking tour of the resort, and the overall feel of the place is that it’s very relaxed and quiet, no kids, so that in itself is a nice feature.  I really loved this resort, with all the inclusions, even though the price point is higher up front, your experience when you are there is so much better!!!!
RIU Palace Tropical Bay was a lot like RIU Negril.  The layout, the look and feel is so similar, it’s a little hard to know where you are at times.  But the rooms, the rooms were much nicer.  The beach out front was a little less crowded, and not quite as weedy.
Here are a few of my pictures from RIU Palace Tropical Bay:
