A first-class experience beckons, as guests indulge in soothing spa treatments, fine dining and refreshing water sports. For ultimate relaxation, kick back on the white-sand beach or pool, or walk hand-in-hand amid the exotic birds, springs and lush gardens that make this resort one of a kind.

Dining

In Room Dining - Lunch/Dinner
On The Lighter Side (breakfast/lunch): items served 6am - 11pm Dinner: Offered From 5:30 p.m. to 11:00pm
The Beach Bar
is where refreshing cocktails meet oceanic paradise. There is nothing like sipping a margarita, digging your toes into white gleaming sand and beholding Caribbean blue waves lapping onto the Jamaican coast.
The Balloon Bar
is a piano bar and lounge designed to put even the most worrisome minds at ease. Drift into the melodies over a glass of bubbly.
Palazzina Restaurant - Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
Hearty bistro fare from around the world is featured here in a festive sea breeze setting. The food includes both buffet and table service and ranges from fresh omelets to coconuts to escargot. The fun is in the bold mix of bistro-style sauces to wasabi on grilled vegetables. Always served by a warm and smiling staff, you will certainly enjoy your time spent at Palazzina either inside or on our wonderful terrace. But, make sure to save room for our delectable dessert selection from our pastry chef who was named "Best in Jamaica" in 2004.
Charlie's Spa Bar
is a full service bar featuring natural health juices like carrot and celery as well as more traditional favorites.
The Beach Grill - Lunch
Beach Grill serves Jamaican-style gourmet hamburgers and other grilled specialties from 12:30pm until 5pm. under the bright blue Ocho Rios sky. Bare feet and bathing suits are welcome.
Ristorante Casanova - DInner
Keeping in line with the history and reputation as one of the most glamorous restaurants in Jamaica, the cuisine at 'Casanova' features an eclectic mix of different traditional food styles fused with tropical Jamaican and Caribbean ingredients. We keep a keen eye on freshness and 'organic' and we work closely with selected farmers on the island. Nightly changing Chef's specials are also available.
Bella Vista - Dinner
Bella Vista is where one goes to have a moonlit dinner right on the beach. Soothed by melodies of our traditional Jamaican Mento Band, the delicious menu of authentic Jamaican specialties and unequalled atmosphere makes this spot a favorite among guests. Casual dress, no reservations required.

Excellent food - beautiful property

Very nice property. Beautiful beach. The food was excellent (above expectations). Nice place to relax, eat,drink, read, etc. for a few days. The fitness center was also good. The physical property is badly in need of an update. The room we stayed in, which was certainly one of the lower priced rooms, needed remodeling and had a musty smell. However, it was clean and had a nice balcony. With a remodeling/painting of the rooms and common areas, this property could be top of the line.

Lovely location

Great location and landscaping of the resort area, excellent place for honeymooners. Restaurants service is great, but food selection for breakfast and lunch are limited and almost the same every day. Beach is small (no walking along the beach) and depth is low - great for those who don't like to swim. There are some issues with water pressure in building F, almost impossible to take shower between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. Beautiful location of the mineral water pool, but sauna's thermostat is broken that leave you no option to warm up after swimming.

Our first trip to Jamaica

This place is amazing! The staff genuinely care if you have a good time. We did different water activities, lounged by the pools, the beach, the Au-Natural beach, and walked the entire resort every day in an attempt to work off some of the calories from all the amazing food. We had a very romantic private dinner in the wedding gazebo thanks to Kaderoy (Super-mon). You can do anything you want any time you want and we met a lot of great people from all over. We've never felt so relaxed in our life. If you don't like climbing stairs, you might want to check out one of the other Couples resorts. Couples San Souci has a lot of stairs to get just about anywhere. If you need/want a lot of nightlife, this particular Couples resort isn't for you. While they have nightly entertainment on a patio, there is no night club or dance club or anything. People get so trashed during the day the place was dead silent by 7:30 every night. The one exception was the Saturday night beach party, which had a "disco night" following at the au-natural beach.

Great Location

Resort was clean. Food was good and selection was descent. Breakfast variety was about the same every morning. Water sports sign up staff was mediocre in hospitality (Especially the ones who did our water skiing). The rest of the resorts staff was incredibly friendly. The beach was really small and not what we were expecting. It did not seem well groomed. Seaweed all over and just a bit dirty looking. On the other side though, the nude side, it was much cleaner and enjoyable. The only downside to the nude beach was that the adjacent resort had a lot of kids coming over onto our side (only happened on 1 occasion) and that the resort staff seemed to come by and visit the nude pool area a lot. There is resort security but I dont think they were there at the time. All in all, very enjoyable and relaxing. Would definitely recommend any couple to go.

A little piece of Heaven Away from Home

We relaxed by the pool, ate wonderful food, enjoyed the friendly and curtious staff. Rested peacefully in our room overlooking the ocean. Rooms were very clean, room service was fantastic. I wouldn't change a thing. This is one place that my husband and I can go to and have no worries. You get so relaxed, you hate when it is time to leave... Highly recommend this getaway resort.
