  • Couples Tower Isle vacation

    Just returned from 8 days at Couples Tower Isle. This place has the best staff and service of any resort that I have vacationed at. Food was excellent and alcohol was top shelf. Manager Leonard Henry and his staff should be proud.

    This is why I always make it Jamaica when I spend my money on a vacation. Nobody does it better.

      Hi Peasie! Small hotel compared to the mega resorts (a little over 200 rooms)it was built in 1949. A real older hotel feel (archictecture) with long hallways and a graceful feel of a time passed. Old movie star and famous personality hangout of that era. Photos in the piano bar feature Louie Armstrong, Errol Flynn, Eva Gardner, Joan Crawford, Walt Disney and others that stayed at the resort, including a picture of Abe Issa with Fidel Castro(it seems that photo was from a travel expo in Cuba just after the revolution).

      It's a great place to relax and recharge your batteries.

        I remember hearing about the old Tower Isle hotel when I was a child. Is it all-inclusive?

              Thanks, I simply like what I like. And, I make no apologies for liking the original Jamaican style all-inclusive resorts. They are to me an adult Disney World. Funny thing is that the typical old Jamaican style all-inclusive (like Tower Isle) is not the typical all inclusive in Jamaica any more, being replaced by the horrible Riu resorts(spanish) and other mega monstrosities which seem to dot the landscape and are now the standard in Jamaica. But, I do understand they provide much needed jobs.

              After the decline of Super Clubs, it seems that all that is left of the original Jamaican concept all-inclusive is Couples resorts and Sandals, (Sandals I do not care for at all)...almost forgot, and Hedo. (the meat market) The original Jamaican concept all inclusive is disappearing.

              Yeah, that picture of Issa and Fidel has always peaked my interest, you and I have discussed that photo in the past, and I was told that it was taken in Cuba and not in Jamaica.
