Seeing some of the other reviews, there isn't a lot that I can add to describe a wonderful and unique experience. Loved everything and would highly recommend. We have stayed at two other resorts in Negril and this was head and shoulders above the others. It is not often you can make a statement like that in a resort area.... More

My wife and I stayed at the The Caves for our honeymoon and are already brainstorming our next trip. This place is absolutely breath-taking. We stayed at another resort for the first half of our honeymoon and then came to The Caves for the second part. My only regret is not booking The Caves for our entire trip. The staff... More

We stayed at The Caves for one night and it was just perfect. The staff was amazing and the food was incredible. Rooms were set and perfect sized. Also, the the rum bar was an amazing way to end the night. I even had friends in the area and they allowed them on property to have dinner with us. the... More

My husband and I stayed in the caves for our babymoon. The trip was extremely relaxing, and I highly recommend booking your stay in Stardust (a few cautions noted below).

My wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary here in January. The property is one of the most beautiful natural settings we have ever experienced. The Caves exudes a peace and calm that is contagious. Despite being near the main road (like pretty much all places in Negril), there is a sense of seclusion as soon as you step on... More

We just got back from a FABULOUS honeymoon at the Caves. Sadly, we only had 4 nights to stay after a busy holiday season and our wedding, but it was JUST what we needed. The Caves is small and they truly make an effort to learn your name and make sure you're having a wonderful time. Our room- we stayed... More

As I advised on my last review, I did pop by to try and look at booking this hotel and was not allowed past the gate. The management then commented that I was advised why I couldn't go in and assinuated that I became insistent on getting on the site. Neither of these are true. I simply saw the hotel... More

The Caves was a great, unique, hotel. After many seasons of the 4 seasons experience, what a welcome change. The property is humble and beautiful. It is a gorgeous, calm place to chill out, however do not come if you are looking for to be waited on hand and foot. Its more a 'go with the flow' kind of vibe.... More

We have travelled to luxury resorts all around the world, and the Caves was among the most surprising. Very unassuming, discrete comfort and rustic chic. It was difficult to imagine what to expect with the few available pictures on the Web (and almost all taken from the same angle) and we were half expecting a somewhat "tired" hotel. On the... More

The Caves is not your usual sprawling resort with sandy beaches so widely touted for Jamaica. The intimate Caves hug the westernmost point of Jamaica, perched on cliffs pounded by constant waves that form natural and spectacular caves. Initially, I was not bowled over by the room, since I am averse to rooms in which almost every surface is lacquered... More
