    In a monthly tradition, Couples Resorts’ blog features a “Guest Spotlight,” where readers hear from devoted resort visitors and get highlights plus insider tips on maximizing enjoyment of the resorts.

    October’s lucky pair is Tim and Lori Heckman from Sidney, OH, married 35 years and a 13-time visitor to the Jamaican destinations with seven visits to Couples San Souci, four to Couples Tower Isles and two to Couples Negril. They love all three, but put Couples San Souci in the number-one spot.

    They see these getaways as “mini-marriage retreats” and celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary with Couples.

    The Heckmans provide tips for first-time visitors — one is to go to the au natural beach at least once! They also speak about the uniqueness of the resort, and sum up in a single word what Couples means to them: romance.

    There is a laundry list of staff that the Heckmans look forward to running into, testament to the quality of service at these resorts. Friends from across the U.S. and Canada are also welcome faces for them.

    Outlining an ideal day at a Couples Resort, the Heckmans like “to do as little as possible (no agenda). We love the beach so lying on the beach, staring at the incredibly blue water, drinking Red Stripe, Hummingbirds, Miami Vice, Rum Runners … Then maybe take a nap and get ready for a romantic delicious dinner.”

    Sounds like fun.
