Couples Tower Isle - Adult-Only Ocho Rios, Jamaica All-Inclusive Resort

Couples Tower Isle in Ocho Rios, Jamaica represents both the renovation and renaming of a once famous resort with its own private island. Tower Isle is the original name of this historic resort, which was in fact Jamaica’s original all-inclusive couples-only resort and home-away-from-home for many Hollywood stars in the 50’s, including Walt Disney himself, Eva Gabor, Debbie Reynolds, boxing champ Joe Louis, and even Princess Margaret, among many others. After a $30 million thorough renovation completed in 2009, the former Couples Ocho Rios honored it historic past by adopting its original namesake. The resort is now known as Couples Tower Isle.

 

 

The staff of ULTIMATE CRUISE & VACATION eagerly awaited completion of the renovation to personally check it out. Well aware of its advanced age, we adhered to the belief that ‘seeing is believing.’ So we arrived at this Couples resort skeptical and open-eyed. We left impressed, believers. This is our personal review and our personal photos of Couples Tower Isle.

 

Today Couples Tower Isle delivers the quality hospitality and value-filled vacation you have a right to expect from Couples Resorts. You will need about two hours to get here from Sangster’s International Airport in Montego Bay, but you will only be about 5 minutes from Downtown Ocho Rios.

 

Let’s get down to the basic facts. Couples Tower Isle has modernized, cleaned up, and in fact is very stylish even by today’s trendy standards. From much of the resort and most of the rooms and suites you will enjoy fabulous views of the ocean and the private off-shore island, reserved exclusively for guests. In fact the beach, though not large, is quite pretty for this area of Jamaica. You will not be disappointed.

 

At Couples Tower Isle the staff of ULTIMATE CRUISE & VACATION experienced warm hospitality from the friendly staff, spacious modern accommodations with great ocean views, superb a la carte dining options, casual fun dining by the Caribbean, truly premium brand drinks, the vast variety of exceptional on and off-site tours and activities always included at a Couples Resort, and a remarkably romantic ambiance – including the private au natural island. Welcome to Couples Tower Aisle where everything, we mean everything - is included.

 

 

Couples Tower Isle has 226 rooms and suites, all furnished with appropriate king-size beds and patios or balconies. Other standard amenities include air conditioning, flat screen TV, telephone, iPod/MP3 docking station, in-room safe, coffee maker, shower, hair dryer, robes, iron and ironing board. Complimentary Broadband access to the internet for your wireless devices is available in a designated area. Computer stations are also available.

 

Clothing concerns are always an issue at these Caribbean style all-inclusive resorts. So here is the scoop from ULTIMATE CRUISE & VACATION. Pack light – many airlines charge outrageous fees for checked bags, and you are going to the Caribbean, where the weather is usually relatively warm. Casual wear and cover-ups for your bathing suits are perfectly acceptable during the day. The ultra-laid-back Beach Grill is casual even after the sun goes down, but Couples requests that you honor “casual elegance” at most restaurants. However, they prefer a more upscale look at the fine dining restaurant – 8 Rivers. Here they require long slacks, collared shirts and closed shoes for men, and dresses, skirts or dress pants for ladies.

 

The Patio is open for breakfast and for lunch, and four unique venues for a la carte dinner are available in the evening. There’s even a beach-side Grill open until 5:00am just to make sure you get your quota of jerk chicken, and everything else you desire - whenever the munchies strike. This is no ordinary fare, Couples is a cut above. You can even order continental breakfast for dining on your balcony.

Activities are another major area where Couples shines. Be sure to read our list of all the activities they include like golf, sunset catamaran cruises, trips to Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville, glass bottom boat rides and much more, including exclusive access to the private au natural island. Couples Tower Isle has a modern fitness center that we use and approve of. While spa services are not included in the all-inclusive package, they are available for a fee, and they are exceptional – as you would expect for a couples-only adult-only resort. Check out our entire section devoted exclusively to the spa services at Couple Tower Isle.

Service throughout the resort is delivered warmly without the expectation of a tip. Couples Resorts has a “No Tipping Allowed” policy.

At ULTIMATE CRUISE & VACATION we believe Couples Tower Isle is a terrific choice for an adult-only vacation in a contemporary refurbished resort on a beautiful beach. Couples Tower Isle is only minutes away from vibrant Ocho Rios, world-famous Dunn’s River Falls, and many other engaging activities and attractions.
