Couples Sans Souci vs Couples Tower Isle

The question comes up all time, which Couples Resort do you recommend in Ocho Rios, Couples Sans Souci or Couples Tower Isle? There isn’t one answer to this question for everyone. Let’s look at the 2 resorts side by side. This should help you decide, which resort is your pick. I have tried both of them and love them both. I would love to go to either of these 2 resorts tomorrow in  a heartbeat.

Couples Sans Souci

Couples Tower Isle


  • 150 suites
  • 5 restaurants
  • 7 bars
  • 4 pools
  • Nice calm cove beach
  • Legendary Spa with oceanfront spa gazebos
  • Private au naturale beach area


  • 218 Rooms
  • 6 Restaurants
  • 5 Bars

  • Jamaica’s original all-inclusive resort

Both of the resorts beaches are nice. Typical of Ocho Rios, neither beach is long. Couples Sans Souci’s beach is slightly shorter and also sits further back in the bay, so more protected from the afternoon breeze.


All the rooms are suites at Couples Sans Souci, so i give the advantage to Couples Sans Souci. The rooms are very affordable at Couples Tower Isle. Both resorts have unique options.

Couples Tower Isle’s Oasis Spa Villas have their own private sun terrace with a personal plunge pool. This Villa requires at least 5 nights and is the only room in the Caribbean that comes with unlimited spa services.

Couples Sans Souci has huge Penthouse Suites with large balconies with amazing views and the resort also has one ultra private hibiscus villa with an outdoor infinity jacuzzi. You have to book this one extremely early.

If you are looking to elope or have a destination wedding, Couples Sans Souci has 2 great wedding gazebo locations. Couples Tower Isle will even let you rent the private island.

Both have amazing spas, but it’s hard to beat the beauty and serenity of the one at Couples Sans Souci. I would definitely choose Sans Souci for spa lovers unless you were a fanatic, then you should do an Oasis spa villa at Couples Tower Isle.

If you like to sunbathe au naturale, Sans Souci has a private beach and Tower Isle has a private island.

If you have any mobility issues, stick with Tower Isle. Couples Sans Souci has steep hills and lots of stairs.

Couples Tower Isle has 2 pickle ball courts. Sans Souci doesn’t have any yet.

One of the biggest draws to Couples Resorts is the extra inclusions you don’t find at other resorts. Couples Tower Isle has also sunset catamaran cruises 3 times per week that Sans Souci does not have. Couples Tower Isle has a pier for the catamaran to pick up guests. Couples Sans Souci doesn’t have a pier.
