Composed of 11 colorful gingerbread cottages, this uniquely stylish adults-only eco-boutique hotel is tucked away beside lush garden paths and dramatic seaside cliffs — where sunning spots are divided among private platforms.

Thanks to competitive pricing, lovely rooms, and great on-site amenities, this 70-room boutique hotel will attract people who never thought they’d choose an all-inclusive package. With three restaurants, cabanas on the terrace, and a late-night lounge, Waves has a contemporary appeal especially for couples.

Founded in 1966, Rendevous is an established upscale, all-inclusive resort that caters specifically to couples.

At Rendevous, it’s all about romance:.The Seaside Pool offers a swim-up bar and views of the ocean, but the more intimate pool by the spa is a clearer reflection of the resort’s overall vibe; sleek, white lounge chairs rest in the water, and bright blue modern lounge chairs are set in pairs (comfortably spaced from the others) around the pool’s edges. Hidden by a row of greenery behind the pool is the Lazy River, a meandering series of streams with private spots for couples to hide out in pod-like day beds.
Designed for adventurous couples who want to add a bit of spice to their vacations, the all-inclusive Hedonism II is a popular mid-range nudist resort tucked into a quiet, private section of Negril’s Seven Mile Beach.

It’s romantic touches such as fire pits, gazebos, and swinging chairs on a pier looking out over the water that make the property distinctly Sandals.
