My husband and I went to the Caves for our honeymoon this August. We stayed in the Star Dust. Let me start by saying that I have been to many resorts over the years and this surpasses all of them ten fold! The staff was so friendly and accommodating. The views were absolutely breathtaking! Our room was so private and... More

I absolutely love this place. My boyfriend and I went here for a one-week summer getaway this past July and had such a fantastic time. This place made the trip. The ambiance is beautiful, as you can see from the pictures. The room we stayed in (The Blue Dolphin) was so quaint and perfect for us - a cute little... More

I'm giving 5 stars because I really loved our vacation but am listing a few things I think could have been improved (plus the people were really great and made the trip even more special).

This was our second trip to The Caves. We stayed 7 days in the Sun Dancer. We were met with ClubMobay and our favorite driver "Smiley" that started our trip out stress free. As soon as we arrived to the Caves our cottage was decorated with Welcome Home banners. Our view of the ocean, the extraordinary staff, the amazing food... More

It is really hard to review the Caves as a resort, for when you are here you feel like you are in the home of a beloved family member. I have never been to an establishment where every single person is absolutely amazing and work so hard to make your stay perfect. Kenesha worked with me from the moment I... More

We spent 8 days at the Caves and loved every second of it! While the views are breathtaking, it's the staff that really makes this place so special; they go above and beyond to make sure your stay is the best it can be. The food was the best we've ever had, and we work in a fine dining restaurant!... More

I am from cappadocia which is known with cave hotels and fair chimneys. This place is different.. barely perfect. If you want true relaxation with someone special, go for it. You won't hear a cell phone. No loud voices, unless it is accompanied with laughter. You will see others, usually from a distance, with the exception of meals. Highly reccomended... More

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

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
