For those looking for a stress-free holiday, Couples Tower Isle provides complete all-inclusive service. Accommodation, all meals and drinks, activities- including scuba diving, airport transfers and some excursions are all included in the cost. There is also a no-tipping policy so guests need not carry any cash at all.
Excellent meal selection
With six restaurants to choose from; both relaxed beach-side dining or more formal options, there should be something for everyone. Guests can opt to eat in their suite or, for a special occasion, request to dine on the hotel's private island (for an additional fee).
Previous guests have only good things to say about the staff at the resort. Friendly and outgoing, they, combined with the beautiful beachfront location, create a relaxed ambience at Couples Tower Isle. Visit the private island offshore to get away from it all (but only if you don't mind losing your inhibitions en-route as it is a clothes-free zone).
Wi-Fi at the hotel can be intermittent and, even when it is working, connection can be slow.
Venturing further afield can be pricey
The hotel runs regular excursions on specific days and times- including the popular catamaran trip, but those guests who opt to visit spots at times convenient to them, may encounter expensive taxi fares.
Rooms; nothing special
While they are contemporary with all the mod-cons, rooms are nothing special when compared to the common areas in the hotel. The resort has been a mainstay on the island for decades and, while modernised several times since, common spaces are still hubs of understated elegance.
