I was a repeat visitor during February 2014. The last time I had been was 2009. The castle was just as great. Staff was the same, very helpful. Still got to see the dogs! Excellent sunsets, and very good snorkeling off to the right of Blue Cave. Would stay here again if I return to Jamaica.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Castle on our first trip to Jamaica. We stayed at the Castle based on a recommendation from a friend who visits Negril on a regular basis. We are independent travellers, and didn't want to stay at an all-inclusive. If you are looking for a fancy resort where you are segregated from real... More

I have been to lots of islands but never Jamaica. Negril has 2 completely different sections. 7 mile beach and the cliffs (See below). As for the hotel, the grounds are very secure with a guard and German Shepherd. The rooms are nice too. Room #4 is the best. The Pent House is has lots of outdoor floor space. We... More

This place is definitely a little quirky but we go have breakfast here every time we are in Jamaica. It's one of the best places to have a traditional Jamaican breakfast. We haven't ever stayed here over night but we have talked to some of the people that do and they seem to really enjoy it. It's a very relaxed... More

I've been a loyal visitor to the Castle for some years now, and it never disappoints. Manager Petrona makes us feel like family, as do the rest of the staff - some of whom have been there since we started going there. Chef Teddy of the on-premises Hideaway Eatery is my favorite chef hands down. His lobster dishes (especially the... More

We added on a last minute day to our trip So decided to try the Blue Cave Castle for one night. We were greeted immediately as soon as we entered the gate and whisked to our room without even having to check in. The room was large, clean and had a private balcony overlooking the yard and the sea. The... More

I booked this hotel based on reviews from TripAdvisor and the hotel exceeded both my husband's and my expecations. The rooms are clean, and very well maintained. The grounds are beautiful and overlook the ocean right on the cliffs over an old pirates' cave. Petrone has managed the property since it was built which explains the excellent condition of the...

I stayed in the Upper Tower Room of the Blue Cave Castle for 3 nights. It was a great little place to stay. There was good airflow through the room so it was never too hot and it had stunning sunset views. They had an area for swimming and jumping off cliffs but they did not have a beach. Teddy's... More
