Top Three Travel Experiences


One of my most favorite vacation is my honeymoon in Negril, Jamaica. Staying at Couple’s Negril. It was also my very first time experiencing an All-Inclusive. It was truly a relaxing, romantic, pampering, refreshing experience. It set the tone for my love of the all-inclusive experience. The No-Worry Vacation.

St. John Virgin Islands

I have been to St. John twice and each time I love it even more. The people are amazing. The views are spectacular everywhere you look. Taking a catamaran to the Soggy Dollar at Jost Van Dyke is the most care free experience in the world. And you cannot go wrong with a Pain Killer made by the amazing bartender Mic.


The island of Oahu has so much history, beauty, culture, and activities you could ever want. My favorite part of the island is the north shore. I enjoy the beauty of the ocean and the quaintness of the area. It truly was awe-inspiring vacation for me.


We had an AMAZING time, we didn't want to come back. The resort was gorgeous. Very clean, it was decorated tastefully not too over the top or anything. The entire time we kept talking about "well next year we'll do this or that" or "next here we'll see this or that" so we will definitely be back! I think both of our favorite memory was just sitting at the private pool enjoying unlimited mimosas in the beautiful resort with a great view and not a care in the world.

We had an awesome trip!!!!  There was plenty to keep us busy and it was very relaxing.  Our room and the resort were clean and the staff were very helpful.  The kids took part in many of the activities around the pool throughout the day and they LOVED the Ninja course and trampoline place.  We were so thankful that those both were included in our stay because they spent several evenings in there for hours at a time. Thanks again for all your help with making the reservations.  It really was an unforgettable trip!!

Greg and I do not have enough amazing things to say about Couples Swept Away! Everything was so incredible. Our room was amazing! We loved that we were able to see the ocean from our room, and we were also steps away from a jacuzzi. We cannot thank you enough for all of your help and support in preparing for our honeymoon.
