Need more options | Debbie's Caribbean Resort Reviews Forums

My wife and I went to Jamaica and stayed at the Couples resort in Negril for our 25th anniversary. Loved the place and would like to plan a trip for our 30th & our 50th birthdays but I just don’t want to get tunnel vision. We are looking at other options for a place to go that is comparable.What we are looking for is an all-inclusive adult only, great beach, water activities (Small catamaran, water bikes, etc) good food and a not a large resort with lots of people and many pools, (We are beach people.)These are all the reasons we like the Couples resorts and are looking at maybe Couples In Ocho Rios but I want to make sure we don’t rule out any other great places.

Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks a bunch for your suggestion I am assuming you have been there yourself? Have you been to any of the Couples resorts?btw do you have any pics to share of Secrets? Be nice to see some of them other than the advertised touched up photos.

Again thanks for your response. Anyone else out there?


I haven’t been to Secrets, but we stayed next door at the cheaper Catalonia Playa Maroma. All I can say is that the Maroma beach is absolutely amazing!

Thanks traveljunky! That place looks as beautiful as the two previously suggested! It looks like from some photos I saw there is a few children around. Its not like I hate kids or don’t want them around but we are looking for a place with zero kids, teens included. I guess that is another plus of the couples locations…. I just can’t believe they are the only ones that can give you the fantastic vacation for adults in love. Secrets resort that was suggested looks close but I am afraid the hobie cats would get blown all over the place with heavy winds. Another concern is it looks rather large. Am I just paranoid?

I really appreciate all the help with this research as we are not regular travelers and to go somewhere warm we would like it to be as close to paradise as possible!! ;D

pk81,We’ve been to two Excellence resorts and two Secrets resorts and I can assure you what you see in the brochure is what you get! If beach is important to you go to Secrets Maroma Beach, you won’t regret it. If luxury and romance are more important go to Excellence Playa Mujeres. We find the Excellence resorts to be a small notch above Secrets but you won’t find a nicer beach in Mexico than Maroma Beach.

need info on Grand Rriviera Princess will be there Sept25-Oct18-2009
