If you are planning a dream couples vacation or honeymoon or a little secret rendezvous here in Jamaica I am pretty sure that the tourist hub of Negril has definitely crossed your mind and probably is your town of choice. Negril is known for having some of the most relaxing adult-friendly vacation resorts. Choosing a resort in Negril is no easy task because they are all so uniquely awesome. But, two outstanding all-inclusive resorts often find themselves in the spotlight: Sunset at the Palms Resort and Couples Swept Away.
While both certainly promise unforgettable experiences in this tropical paradise, they cater to different audiences; each offers unique features that set them apart. So, if you happen to have narrowed down your choices to these two, let’s look at the pros and cons of both accommodations.
The Setting: Sunset at the Palms Resort is an adults-only, boutique haven nestled in a lush garden setting.

The all-inclusive package includes a variety of dining options, premium bars, non-motorized water sports, a fitness centre, nature walks with resident gardeners, daytime activities, evening entertainment, and even Jamaican cooking and bartending classes.
