It’s no surprise that plenty of couples on a romantic Jamaican vacation want to relax without the shrieks of children playing — or, worse, crying. Instead, the only sounds they desire include the occasional breeze that rustles through the palm trees, ice cubes clinking in poolside refreshments and sweet nothings from their partners.
The following escape-worthy resorts are a retreat into kid-free relaxation in Jamaica.
Catcha Falling Star (Negril)Couples who love an ocean view and the opportunity to see dolphins from their hotel room will also appreciate relaxing at Catcha Falling Star, situated on the cliffs of Negril.

There are watersports available for adventurers; a spa for those who prefer to relax; and a bar for everyone in between to meet, drink and dine on jerk chicken.
Excellence Oyster Bay (Falmouth)Even better than a kids-free vacation is one with almost no one around — and Excellence Oyster Bay delivers via its private peninsula with secluded beaches.
