My fiance and I were having a dilemma about which Couples resort to stay at for our honeymoon. After talking with our travel agent, we made the choice between Couples Negril and Couples Swept Away. We are going to be staying at Couples Negril. Although Couples Swept Away is a bigger resort and more laid back, we found quite a few reasons why we liked Couples Negril better: I personally like the Beachfront Suite at Couples Negril better than the Beachfront Verandah Suite and Couples Swept Away. The bathroom has his and her sinks and a huge jacuzzi tub with a separate shower. Not all the rooms at Couples Swept Away have televisions because of the more laid back relaxing atmosphere. Having a television in our room is not that important, but once you don't have certain amenities, you will miss them. We get to have hourderves (sp?) everynight. We can also have a private dinner set up in our room instead of sitting at the restaurants. I'm sure Couples Swept Away is wonderful but Couples Negril fits our tastes more perfectly than Swept Away. Also, I've been reading a lot of reviews on both and I find the pictures more thrilling than at Swept Away. Oh and Couples Negril is closer to Riu Palace Tropical Bay, this way when our guests leave we can say goodbye to them (we will be switching resorts before our friends and family leave) and I would really like to see my daughter before she leaves for home since we won't see her for a few days. Well I could ramble on. But I'm glad we picked a resort! It was so hard at first because both resorts are equally amazing!!
