Best, most relaxing, laid back, romantic vacation ever. Extremely friendly and accommodating staff. Very clean and safe. Whatever you need, just ask. :) A bit pricey compared to other Negril options, but worth every penny. Be sure to reserve a romantic candlelight dinner in the cave or on the cliffside. Also, reserve a snorkeling expedition with Paul, the swan-diving aquatics... More

Everything was good: resort, service, food, weather, views, room. If you're looking for a busy exciting place with lots of nightlife, this is not the place. However, if you're looking for snorkeling, majestic views, magical caves, this is the place. It's not cheap but definitely among our best trips. Reminds me a bit of Santorini in Greece.

Just got back from 4 nights at the cave, and it was everything we were hoping it would be. We actually planned this trip 3 times, but for various reasons couldn't go until now. So it is a compliment when I say The Caves met and exceeded my enormous expectations. First off, this place is about relaxing. While The Caves... More

My wife and I just returned from four relaxing days at The Caves. Even after reading all the reviews ahead of time and being in Jamaica several times before we were still impressed and very pleased with our stay. We are both beach lover’s and were a little worried going into it we would miss not having a beach there... More

We just returned from a 4 day vacation and we were in swept away by The Caves. We had booked our trip through Jetsetter and there was a slight mixup with our room but The Caves totally fixed it right away and although we did have to switch rooms, it was totally worth it (we were fortuntate to stay in...

I truly cannot begin to say enough good things about The Caves! This resort was hands down the most amazing and gorgeous place either of us has ever been. From the views (breathtaking), to the food (so delicious!), to the drinks, to the service (outstanding), to the uniqueness of the rooms.. every ounce of our trip was top notch! We... More

We visited The Caves in Dec 2012 to celebrate my last chemo from breast cancer. We wanted to retreat to paradise after a long ordeal. We could not have chosen a more perfect spot in the world. We stayed in the Blue Hole and loved the privacy of the balcony and the sounds the ocean made below from the Blue... More

My wife and I visited the Caves for our honeymoon in early January, 2014, and had an absolutely fantastic time. Some of the highlights: - The food was some of the best we've ever eaten. The vegetable soup and fish dishes are out of this world, and the resort did a great job of catering to our dietary needs. -... More

We recently spent 6 nights at The Caves. The resort is lovely and the locale amazingly beautiful. The staff, from front office, servers, grounds people - were wonderful, helpful, and always courteous. We loved The Birds Nest - one of only 12 "cottages". It was uniquely appointed with a great view of the Caribbean. The food was excellent. Exploring the... More

Stayed there last March just getting around to a review, sorry. My husband and I loved this place. It's very secluded and private. AT any given time there's about two dozen people. It has cute colorful open air cottages, some of which jut out to the water giving you a great view. Open air... meaning the windows and doors stay... More

Hotel Class:4 star — The Caves 4*
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
