Reviews for Couples Tower Isle
We stayed at CTI for a week at the beginning of February. This was our first time at CTI, but our 12th visit to Couples (we have stayed at Couples Sans Souci and Couples Swept Away). We stayed at the Jamaica Inn prior to visiting CTI on this trip. We were able to check in a bit early (2:00) as we only had a 10 minute cab ride from Jamaica Inn. The front desk staff were helpful. They had the restaurant reservations that I had made prior to arrival (a perk of being a Couples Romance Rewards member). There was some confusion with our resort credits (both Passionate Love level credit and early booking credit), but we were able to get this figured out before the end of our stay. I reserved a Jr. Oceanview Suite. We were given a room in Building 3 (the main building where the lobby is) on the 4th floor. There is an elevator in this building. I absolutely loved this room. Compared to CSA and CSS, this was by far the nicest room that we have stayed in at Couples. The bedroom was huge with a sitting area with lots of drawer space and chairs. The mini bar area was 2 steps up from the bedroom area. There was more storage space (storage space is definitely an issue in the CSA rooms). There was a little shelf next to the door for putting purses, suntan lotion, etc. Then there was a large walk in closet - wow - never seen this before at Couples. The safe was in here, along with our robes, slippers, iron, and safe. And MORE shelf space. The bathroom was enormous; bigger than our entire room at Jamaica Inn. I loved the Jacuzzi tub and the shower stall (with a ledge so water didn't get onto the floor). The commode was behind a sliding door. There were shades on the windows by the shower stall and Jacuzzi that allowed me to see out when closed, but gave us privacy. Two steps down from the Jacuzzi was a small balcony with drying rack. Lots of storage space underneath the sink, along with a makeup mirror. There was another small (shallow) balcony off of the bedroom that had two chairs and a table. This balcony also had a drying rack There was a ceiling fan above the bed and some cute art around the room. Housekeeping quickly learned our schedule (we are early risers) and our room was made up before 10:00 just about every day. The turndown service was also great (appreciate the clean towels at night). My only quibble with the room is that more hooks in the bathroom would be greatly appreciated as we always had lots of stuff hanging everywhere to dry. Also, the balcony in this room category is small. It looked like the balconies in other room categories were much deeper. We ordered continental breakfast every morning (mostly for the coffee; we love our Jamaican coffee). I loved sitting on the balcony watching the sun rise (which would have been somewhat visible to the right had it not been cloudy almost every morning). The room service always arrived within the proscribed time. I will add that the bathroom floor does get extra slick when wet. My hubby took a nasty spill down the bathroom steps when going to open the balcony door. A handrail by the steps would be nice if they can't roughen up the steps' surface. A grab bar by the Jacuzzi tub would also be nice. The "martini bar" is open on the roof between building 3 and the Patios restaurant on Wednesdays and Sundays. We went on our first day (a Wednesday) and were lucky to watch the Super Moon rise over the Caribbean accompanied by live music. The CTI martini bar takes third place next to the ones at CSA and CTI (both for the limited opening times and service), but an A+ on ambiance. We had our first and last dinner at the Verandah restaurant, a non-reservation restaurant, which is inside in Building 3 (and very similar to Patois at CSA). We both thought the service and food choices were terrific. We ate breakfast every day at Patios, the open air restaurant. I can't imagine even the pickiest eater not finding something to eat here. I love the Jamaican breakfast items, like Callaloo and Ackee and Saltfish and fish rundown. My husband liked the fresh salsa with the scrambled eggs. We both enjoyed sparkling wine with breakfast. Do be sure to wait to be seated when the sign is posted. We worked out every day in the gym, and I have to say this is my favorite Couples gym. The air conditioning worked like a champ, combined with a killer view of the pool and Caribbean. There were 3 ellipticals, 3 treadmills, and 3 bikes, along with weight machines and free weights. There were always plenty of sanitizing wipes and towels. On a few days it got crowded around 8:00 a.m., but usually we were done with our workout by then. My husband is a jogger and found a trail to run around the spa. He said it was one of the prettiest runs he's ever taken. The spa area also has the kitty compound and the lovely parrots. We ate at Bayside on our second night. The Asian fusion food was very good, and you cannot beat sitting on top of rocks with the waves crashing below. There is also a small bar here to enjoy a before or after dinner drink. Our third dinner was at 8 Rivers. This was on lobster night and we both ordered the lobster, which was delicious. A marvelous high end reservation restaurant. We loved the murals that we understand were only rediscovered when CTI underwent a restoration in 2009. We ate lunch at both the beach grill and at Patios. Both options were tasty, but I do love the snapper sandwich at the beach grill, and hubby liked the jerk burger there. The main bar was fun and offered all sorts of drink options. My favorites were the American Flag and the Dirty Banana. The flag service on the beach and at the pool also worked well. On some days, we did hang out at the main pool, which is the quieter pool. Volleyball games were sometimes played here. We both thought the waterfall feature was super cool. The 2 Jacuzzis near the main pool were a disappointment. The lower one was always cool the entire week. The other one was warm, but both Jacuzzis sit 6 maximum. They really could use another Jacuzzi by the swim up bar. We spent most of our days on the beach. The weather was cloudy and rainy for a good part of our stay, which meant rough water and yellow flags. We never did get on the snorkel boat. We did manage to snorkel one day along the cliffs past Bayside, which was amazing (we have our own snorkel gear). There is some gorgeous coral, and different fish depending upon what time of day you go out. My husband saw several Eagle Rays in the afternoon. But most days the visibility in the water was too low to snorkel. The yellow floaty pads in the swimming area were fun to hang out in, but with the water being so rough, we mostly hung on for dear life. It was a little weird sitting on the floaty while the shell guy sat on his paddle board, blowing into his shells, nearby. For the record, it is illegal to bring shells back into the U.S. There are MAJOR rocks in the water. They really should tell guests about this when you check in, as we would have worn our water shoes in the water the first day. Hubs badly stubbed his toe the first day. We enjoyed the small craft market and bought two paintings. They definitely need to add a shower near the swim up bar (there is only a foot wash here). There are showers near the veggie grill and the watersports hut, but I did not see anything near the swim up bar. We enjoyed the swim up bar a lot (shout out to Angelique). There is a walled off deep pool that I liked swimming around in. Because we were there in early February, the swim up bar, main pool, and beach, were mostly in shadows by 3:30. This wouldn't have been such an issue if sunshine had not been so scarce during our stay. The gift shop is amply stocked and my husband bought several pairs of water socks, which were a bargain at $16. We also used the laundry service since we had already been in Jamaica for almost a week prior to coming to CTI. The service worked great - there was a laundry form in the desk. We just left the items by the door, and they were returned fresh and clean later that day. We could not use the resort credit for the laundry service. And thus finally arrive at the actual Tower Isle. Although we were both aware that this was the Au Naturel island, I think it really ended up annoying my husband to no end that us textile folks could not use it (although I understand it is available in the very early morning and after 5:00). It didn't grate on me, but I sensed much disaffection on hubs part. I'm certainly not blaming CTI for having an au naturel feature. I was glad that it kept people off of the textile beach, which otherwise would have been overrun. As it was, it was never necessary to reserve chairs on the main beach (and the people who did just go their stuff rained on every morning). I do wish that they would be clearer about the smoking policy. I have asthma and try my best to stay away from smokers, and in particular cigar smokers. But every day on the beach, we would have to relocate because a smoker took up near where we were. We used our 1/2 hour complimentary couples massage and upgraded to 50 minutes. We were looking forward to soaking in the Buddha pool (similar to the one at CSA) prior to our massage. We were surprised when we were told watersports had to be summoned to turn on the jets in the Buddha pool. There are also large Jacuzzis in the spa. I thought our massage was very good. I also had a facial, which was excellent. We were there for the Super Bowl, and with the weather being so dicey, there was a lot of speculation all week as to where the party would be. They ended up setting up a large screen by the main pool and setting up three rows of chairs on the other side of the pool. You could also watch the game from BEHIND the screen in the Beach Grill. The Beach Grill remained open for the game and served snacks, hot dogs, wings, and burgers. It was a crowded set up, but I understand their limitations with the weather. What did astonish me was that they were serving drinks in real glasses to people sitting by the pool. I kept picturing them having to drain the entire pool because somebody dropped a glass by the pool. Neither of us was very impressed with the outside buffet on Saturday night, but we are not really buffet people for dinner. We did like that tables for two were available. The repeaters dinner was at 8 Rivers and we enjoyed this meal, too. Because we did the repeaters dinner, we missed the beach BBQ (which is good as again, we are not buffet people for dinner). We did have a drink and snacks at the managers cocktail party on Monday, which was lovely. Our friends from home were staying at CSS during the same time we were at CTI, and visited us on the Trading Places program one day. We had a lot of fun together and I encourage everyone to take advantage of this perk. We ended up at the Piano Bar at some point almost every evening. They make great martinis here. We liked the old photos of Abe Issa and his guests. However, there was a distinct moldy smell in the Piano Bar. I wish they had an evening bar that was outside besides the main bar and the very small bar by Bayside. It was a very long two hour drive back to Mobay with stops at CSS to pick up guests and a slowdown due to the military checkpoints. Hubs definitely thought the food at CTI was better than CSA or CSS, but we always thought the food was very good at those places, too. I'm certainly glad that we tried CTI. Hubs is against going back, and we both may be ready to return to CSA in 2019 (we haven't been there since 2015). Nobody throws a Super Bowl party like CSA. We ran into may Couples repeaters who were also trying CTI for the first time. If you like more of a hotel feel, it definitely is the resort for you.

My husband and I were here for a week Feb. 13th. There's something to be said about being at a smaller resort. Approx. 250 rooms and you get to know so many people. The piano bar was our favorite! The music and sing a long and sax player on a separate night. WOW - and the art history on the walls! The food was awesome and the restaurants just the same. Staff were super. We will definitely come back to Tower Isle

My husband and I visited Jamaica in February 2017 and stayed at a different all-inclusive resort in Runaway Bay. Hands down, Couples Tower Isle-Ochos Rios has them beat!! Couples you are our new go-to resort!! We opted for the Oasis Spa Villa for our accommodations and couldn't have been more pleased with our choice; guaranteed the best money we could have spent. With our stay in the Oasis Spa Villa we were given the choice of unlimited spa treatments and we chose to schedule these every morning and could have scheduled many more appointments if we wanted. I was able to contact Stacian, the Spa/Salon Receptionist, in advance of our trip and she allowed me to schedule any appointments that seemed fitting at the time. We were allowed to add to these appointments at any time. The spa staff is knowledgeable, courteous, and very well-mannered. There is a beautiful plunge pool and male/female hot tubs located in the spa area as well. My spa therapist, Latoya, was there every day with a beautiful smile to provide me the service of my choice. I never felt uncomfortable with her, no matter the service she was providing. I highly recommend her!! Also, don't miss out on the fresh smoothie bar and specially chosen flavored waters each day. Now back to the Oasis Spa Villa....you just wouldn't believe that such a place exists until you actually experience it. I had seen the photos and watched the YouTube video tours, but nothing prepares you for the experience you will receive if you stay in one of these villas. Secluded at the back of the resort in a beautifully maintained garden area, you enter your private entryway onto a patio area surrounded in lush garden, a lily pond, and a plunge pool. Do not fret, there is a DO NOT DISTURB sign for that entry gate!! There are double french doors entering the villa that has spacious floor space, very clean decor, and the most beautiful bathroom I have ever seen; open shower plan with double shower heads and a vanity that stretches from 1 corner to the next!! The doorbell is a charm, so I won't ruin that for you. Housekeeping, room service, gardening services, and patio services were hands-down the best ever! Everyone seemed to coordinate perfectly with our schedule and when we would return to the villa each time we would enter a clean and stocked room. Turn-down service was never overlooked either. My only recommendation is to take a pair of ear plugs if you are staying in the villa, as you are backed up to the main road and there is some background noise. The noise seems to soften as the night progresses. I can say without a doubt it did not hinder my sleep pattern nor rest for the duration of our stay. The restaurants are plentiful and the food is delicious. You can choose to dress casual and eat at the buffet or dress your best and make reservations for the 2 reservation-only restaurants. I suggest you partake in every meal available at least one time. Burgers, fries, and nachos by the pool or Ceasar salads in your room. Don't overlook the Piano Bar and take a look at the photos surrounding you of all the famous names that have visited Tower Isle. A huge thank you Dalton, Sales & Guest Services Team Leader, for making advance dinner reservations for me and my husband. Also, thank you for offering advanced excursion reservations!! The Tower Isle - I think most of us visiting the Caribbean have the desire to explore and be a little more adventurous than usual; I know me and my husband are!! The island is a nude-only island and clothing is not allowed. Let me be very clear when I say there is nothing to be afraid, bashful, or ashamed about. We met some of our best friends by visiting the island at every opportunity we had during our visit. This is the most comfortable and respectable atmosphere and you will not regret having visited; you will only regret not visiting. Bar, food, restrooms all available on the island. Do not get discouraged if the weather doesn't permit you to visit everyday; you will have plenty of time to explore the island during your stay. Don't miss out on this resort opportunity. Couples truly is a resort that yearns to please you. Everything from the airport Couples lounge, the transportation from and back to the airport, the check-in upon arrival, to the check-out at your leave is phenomenal. The staff in every area of this resort was hands-down the most courteous and helpful for our every need and want. My husband and I look so forward to our return trip to Couples Jamaica in 2019!!
My husband and I stayed at Couples Tower Isle for a week in January in an OceanView room. We absolutely loved it! The staff goes above and beyond to make sure you have everything that you want. Dean takes amazing care of the gardens! The resort feels very private unlike some other resorts we have visited - you never had to fight for a beach chair. We enjoyed walking through the gardens and laying on the beach. Unfortunately, the au natural island was closed due to the ocean being too rough to boat over there. We are definitely coming back next year! The food was amazing, too! Make sure to try the jerk burger at the pool grill. We ordered room service for breakfast on two different mornings. It was so nice to eat on our balcony with a beautiful view! We also got a couples massage - I highly recommend it! We were SO relaxed for the rest of the day. It was really fun to meet new people at the pool bar and piano bar. While we were visiting, the staff was making constant improvements (example: painting, fixing anything that was wrong). You can really tell that they strive to keep this resort in excellent condition. We will be back!
We have been visiting the Caribbean every February for the last 26 years. We have stayed at many resorts on many different islands, but this one is simply the best value for the money. The food is amazing whether you are eating in one of their top flight restaurants or at the buffet. Liquor is top shelf - no nameless or watered down drinks here. We were amazed that so much was included with your resort stay. Things we paid extra for at other resorts (Dunn River Falls tour, catamaran cruises, glass bottom boat, etc) were included with no extra charges. Golf was free (although the course required that you hired a caddy). Activities were varied and fun: craft classes, cooking classes, massage classes, etc were included. (There was a very small reasonable change for materials in some classes.) Evening activities were varied and fun: dinner on the beach, dance parties, martini parties, native dancers, etc. While the beach was smaller than some, there was ample shade for those who preferred it and three pools. I can't even think of anything negative to say other than you owe it to yourself and your sweetie to treat yourself to the best vacation you'll ever have!
