The property at the top, Couples, finds itself set in Ocho Rios directly on the beach. This affords travelers connection not only to a swimming pool but the sun, sand, and surf too. We have given this resort a rating of 4 stars. Bear in mind they offer all-inclusive options. In addition to featuring a pool, Couples has 4 courts where guests can enjoy a game of tennis.
Whether you and your traveling companions want to allocate your days swimming, soaking in the sunlight, lying about, or a mishmash of each, there are a variety of pool settings to select from. With 4 swimming pools on property, Couples shares with people just enough aquatic variance. The premier swimming pool is acknowledged for its decorative architecture, which has guests awe-struck while they lounge just beyond the splashing water. It's quite a big swimming pool at that, and features flawless grounds. There is also a hot tub for tired guests to soak, providing a warmer, more carefree area for adults to unwind from the day.
Additionally, the pool area offers a selection of offerings that allow visitors to plan a whole day at the pool. The pool snack bar is an excellent place to get a light bite as you endure the time between meals. As you feel dehydrated, simply find your way over to the poolside bar, which serves a collection of alcoholic beverages as well as those of the non-alcoholic variety.
While you're spending time in the swimming pool and could use a beverage to quench your thirst, there is no reason to bother making your way out of the swimming pool. Everyone can appreciate the bonus feature of their swim up bar, which offers you the chance to make your way over to the attendant, order a beverage, and paddle away, beverage in hand.
