Perfect vacation! We spent 4 days at the Caves. We were warmly welcomed upon arrival by Melissa and Sheri and Karen the hotel manager.The welcome drink and warm chill vibe is the perfect way to begin a 10 year anniversary vacation. We quickly settled in and met Paul. Paul is the life guard, water sports and water activities man. He... More

Great place to relax, unwind and feel like you just inherited a private cliff side villa. Walking by a tree with fruit and want some, someone will climb it and serve you the fruit just because you asked what something is (yes that did happen). No beach, no problem. Just walk down and climb a ladder into the ocean. Don't... More

The Caves is beyond beautiful and the staff is by far the best I've ever seen! I thought our room was perfect (minus the AC was just a little too warm in the sea turtle room) but other guests said their AC was great (in blue dolphin). However the view from Sea Turtle (or butterfly, it's right above it!) is... More

We had a four-night honeymoon trip to the Caves during the first week of September and could not have enjoyed it more. All the positive things you're reading here are true--the staff, the ambiance, the food and drinks...everything was perfect. We were just gaping at the beauty of the place the whole first day. The staff could not have been... More

My husband and I came here for our 1st anniversary trip, and it was perfect for what we needed- a quick, beautiful, and relaxing getaway from NYC. With the weather showing 80-90% chance of rain during all 3 days we were there, I was worried we wouldn't get any sun. Luckily the sun did sneak out for a few hours... More

many drinks we had there. You have to ask for them by name. Oraine, Zoom, Randall were world class talented bartenders at a boutique resort nestled on the Negril Cliffs...visiting for their services alone would be worth the trip again. For the swimmer/cliff jumpers/snorkelers, Paul the swimming guide is very experienced and knows the surrounding Carribean sea waters like his... More

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.
