Felt like a total tourist snare. Bad food, bad service, no local patrons inside, totally manufactured experience. The diving is interesting enough to watch but the divers are so desperate for attention and money that it felt like a bit of a circus act. (Not uncommon for local divers to ask foreign women to marry them.) The restaurant exists because... More

This is supposedly the 'must do' attraction in Negril. Hmmmm...... I must have missed something. We went in October. It fine to watch people jumping into the sea but once you've seen a few do jump it is a bit boring. Most that seem to do it are worse for wear with drink and I wouldn't say its a clever... More

It was cool to check out Rick's Café and jump off the cliff, but other than that it wasn't something I will travel a hour and thirty minutes to check out again. The food was just okay and with there being hardly anyone in the restaurant, the service was bad and the waitress was really rude to our group. Jumping... More

There is a lot of hype about Rick's Cafe. The advertisements say that its one of the top ten bars in the world, but really it's a massively marketed tourist trap. You can watch tourists and Rick's Cafe divers jumping from the cliffs into the sea. This was fun for 10 minutes or so. What else is there at one... More

we had an afternoon here and it is a beautiful setting, you can dive off the cliffs which is fantastic. The locals are brilliant they dive off the highest 'makeshift' dive board and then scale the cliff to get back to the top. Brilliant!!!!!! The sun set is breathtaking!!!!

This place is quite high up and enables you to see across Negril. Some of our party done the diving from the cliffs which this place is best known for. There is a lovely pool with sunbeds and private seating areas that you can hire.

This is one the best places in the world to watch the sunset! I did not go to the cave but did do the 35 foot cliff jump, which was cool, as was the rope swing on the other side. All of the locals want money for even a little assistance, typical. It was cool to watch the locals climb... More

Visited this bar and viewing spot with another couple whilst holidaying at the nearby Sensatori Hotel. We arrived about 1715 in readiness for the sunset at 1800. It was already busy with lots of people watching the local daredevils diving from the cliff tops and the more adventurous ones diving off a platform which is set up on a tree... More
