This hotel was awarded a place on the Condé Nast Traveler's Gold List for 2013, so you know you’re in for a treat...
This luxury hotel is tucked away on top of a rocky outcrop, and looks out over a spotless white beach. The sea views are second to none – and you get to enjoy them whichever room you’re staying in.
There are four pools here. And dining is a real pleasure, with options including a gourmet venue and a beach grill. Beyond the hotel, Ocho Rios – home to Dunn’s River Falls – is about a 10-minute drive away.

Great resort, BUT...
Couples Sans Souci is a great resort overall, BUT it's not quite what the sales pages say it is. Whilst it is indeed a resort for couples, its not exactly the quiet, romantic escape that is intimated on the website. We upgraded to a Beachfront Suite which on reflection was the probably the right choice as if we had stayed in the standard accommodation there would have been LOTS of stairs involved in order to get down to the beach / pool / breakfast etc. The only problem was that any sort of evening "specials" (Caribbean Night / Friday extravaganza / catwalk show etc.) took place on the main lawn just in front of the Beachfront Suites. Now this isn't a problem if that is what you're on holiday for - lots of loud singing, music etc but we were there for a quiet romantic retreat for our anniversary. Generally the noise stopped at around 10pm, but then the staff had to take down the sets so it dragged on to 11pm some nights. The staff then had to get ready for breakfast from around 6:30am so not quite the lie-in that we were hoping for. The staff were fantastic, but again some suffered from an overdose of personality and wouldn't take no for an answer when they demanded you get up off the sun lounger for "Reggea dancing", "Bob Marley quiz" or whatever else was going on during the day around the pool. It got to a point that we retreated to our room later in the week from around 3pm as the "entertainment" staff were rounding people up. The resort is very much aimed at the American market who seemed to lap up this sort of entertainment, and that's fair. But trying to get guests to chug beer and shots at 2-3pm in the pool bar seemed a little desperate and more suited to club 18-30s, not a 5* "Couples" resort. Also offering a bottle of rum as a prize for the made-up competitions was ridiculous as this is an all-inclusive resort where all the drinks are free... The saving grace was the food (which was excellent) and the watersports team. The diving was free (unless you wanted a wetsuit which was $10 per day - this isn't listed on the website). A lot of money for a holiday that wasn't quite as billed.More

Much needed getaway!
A friend and I decided to take a quick weekend getaway and our travel agent referred us to Couples San Souci. This is definitely a smaller resort if you want something more intimate for your vacation and not to "get lost" in the mix of a larger place. I'm going to go in order to review although overall WE LOVED IT! 1) the drive. So if you get motion sickness like me the two hour drive from the airport is NOT fun. Although the driver was extremely informative pointing out places of interest and giving a little history lesson in each Parrish. 2) upon arrival we were greeted quickly. We got there before check in time but within minutes we had a wet cloth, champagne, room keys and dinner reservations set. We were given a nice booklet that included the map and coupons for the shop. Also they will hold money on your card so make sure you clear your vacation with your bank so you don't get your account frozen, I almost forgot! 3) we stayed in the Azalea building in room A18 the oceanfront suite. It was BEAUTIFUL. Because we were early our bar wasn't set up but we had it stocked within the hour. The view overlooked the pool and beach and the bathroom had quality toiletries and beautiful finishes. The tv also had a decent set of channels if you find yourself turning it on. 4) we spent the first day getting he lay of the land. It's nice to ride bikes around the resort and we even tried Sunset Beach but I didn't know you couldn't be just topless you had to get totally nude. My friend wasn't comfortable doing so, so we didn't stay there but it's a really nice area with more then enough beach chairs, a pool and bar. There are a few pools. Usually the main pool was crowded but there is never anyone at the Balloon Bar pool and the mineral pool and jacuzzi are also pretty empty and were my favorites. (Turn your chair around at the mineral pool to face the water, best view on the resort!!) 5) as far as included excursions we didn't partake but we did go to mystic mountain with rainforest vacation company. Check them out! We did do the dancing lessons which were fun and my god PLEASE GET A MASSAGE AT THE SPA!! We did a couples massage and between heavenly hands and the ocean breeze coming into the hut I fell asleep. We got there on a Friday so we also got a chance to enjoy the gala. I don't know the girl who sang but she was great!! 6) the food was good. We mostly ate at the beach grill during the day but we did eat at Casanova one night. The salmon was average but the desserts were REALLY GOOD! The breakfast buffet at Palazzino was also good and had a pretty impressive display. 7) drinks were good. Look for the bartender Mario (he made the best drinks and excursion/resort activity suggestions we looked for him daily) And try the frozen Bob Marley. All in all it was a lovely vacation and I can't wait to go back.More
Whole hotel tired and dated. Bathroom no better than a Premier Inn for a 5* price tag. House wines (the only ones which are inc) amongst the worst Ive ever had. Wine uogrades extortionate. Beaches and pools good. Food v good on the whole. Excursions expebsive waste of time. Over 100km to airport at Montego Bay.More

Back again and still loving it
This was my second stay and it was even better. The tennis pro was available almost all day long too and he is excellent. Stayed in the C Block building which did not have much of a view but was extremely convenient for a lot less than the ocean front view. Food was very good although we did not do anything that would require me to wear pants on vacation so that eliminated one of the dinner options. Good entertainment and the staff did a great job of engaging with people on a daily basis. Everyone who stayed there and had stayed at other Couple properties prefers this one.More
Exceptional Property and Service
Couples San Souci is a truly exceptional property. It is partially built into an oceanside cliff with great views, as well as a two large sandy beaches. Restaurants, beverages, and service in particular is second to none. My only advice/complaint would be to select your room carefully. Some of the buildings are a bit dated by American standards. However, the A and B block buildings are newer and excellent.More
