Couples Tower Isle Jamaica Holiday March 2015
This YouTube video sums up the experience.
The food was wonderful easily the best we have had in the Caribbean. Through the week we did not dine once in the main dining hall but took advantage of the specialty restaurants of which there are three; one offered Asian cuisine while the other two, the Veranda and Eight Rivers serve great meals with all the accoutrements and thoughtful service. On two mornings we had breakfast in our room. Local dishes combined with North American fare satisfied us on each day of our vacation.
The resort was all-inclusive but no tipping was permitted. Not once did I see a tip passed to the staff. It is such a relief not to have to tip. At other resorts my wife and I are always wondering what is enough. Tipping in Cuba and the DR was always a hassle though it did not overshadow the vacation in the least just a minor inconvenience. Not here. A gratuity is included in the price so the staff are not left out.

While there I bought some Cuban cigars for a decent price and we just had to get a supply of Blue Mountain coffee.

If you are into au natural sunbathing Couples is the place for you. Tower Isle is the place to be to bare all. Not for us though, we are too timid. Anyway those who dared raved about it.
So, a great trip, we cam back rested if a little sunburned. We have fond memories of our trip and chalk it up as another successful vacation in the Caribbean.
