We were very pleased with the presentation, service, and quality of our dinner. We had 3 entres and every single one of them were perfectly prepared. The ambiance of the waves crashing in right below us was superb. The cave room we were in opened up to the ocean below. It was private, just the two of us. The experience... More

We went to The Caves in January as a group of 3 for a company retreat (small business). It was Paradise. I can't stop thinking about this place as it was so magical. I cannot wait to return with my husband. And this is from a person that very rarely goes to the same place twice, as I'd prefer to... More

We anticipated the resort to be small and intimate but when we got there, it felt even more so than we had expected. Everyone on staff at the resort is super friendly and helpful, as if their sole mission is to make sure you are enjoying yourselves. The view is simply breathtaking and it's something you don't get from other... More

I can not say enough amazing things about this resort. My husband and i went out on honeymoon to Negril, and spent half of our time on the beach side, and half on the cliff side. Both places were great, but The Caves is honestly unlike anything you will find anywhere else! I was in a complete depression after we... More

Honeymooned here a few years ago and had the oppurtunity to meet Chris Blackwell. This place is great to just wind down. For those who don't want TV, busy beaches and all that comes with those giant resorts, this is the place. Dinner in the cave was great, sunset was stunning. You need to try this place once in your...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Caves sits along the limestone cliffs of the West End of Negril, right next to the famous Negril Lighthouse in Jamaica. Although situated only a few miles away from the bustling town center, this private enclave is a world apart. Eleven handcrafted wood and stone thatched-roof cottages, plus a 4-bedroom fully self-contained luxury villa, are interwoven between ten acres of lush vegetation and naturally formed volcanic caves. Quaint stone pathways wind through the limestone cliffs dotted with palm, sea grape and dogwood trees overlooking the Caribbean Sea. An arrangement of coral stairs and walkways lead to sundecks with uninterrupted views of the sea and sky, and grottos with turquoise water pools and fossilized marine life. A tropical reef system comes right up to the edge of the cliff, perfect for snorkeling. Guests can climb down ladders into the sea or take a leap from several “jump points,” the highest of which is 30 feet! An intimate, private and unique resort, The Caves is perfect for romance and relaxation.The Caves generally does not accept children under 16 years old. Exceptions must be cleared with the hotel management. ... more   less
