Amazing does not even start to describe The Caves. We were met with welcome drinks(Thanks Orane) After traveling all day, we just want to set and have a drink. So we made our way to The Sands, where we meet the BEST bartender in the world, IMRON who can fix any and everything you want or need. The morning we... More

There is not enough praise that I could give for the Caves... and I'm at times hard to please. It was absolutely fantastic... all around. Hidden little nooks everywhere, tons of privacy, friendly staff beyond belief and an amazing on-site chef. The food was tremendous, and delightfully prepared with plenty of vegetables and fresh seafood. Our sunsets bath (book ahead)... More

I really don't want to be repetitive so read every great review that has been written and add what I write. UNBELIEVABLE is an understatement. What can you say about a place that is so beautiful, special, unique, caring, and accomodating. The staff are incredible, the food magnificent, the setting beyond words and the service as great as Sunday dinner... More

The Caves was unlike any vacation spot we have been to- the grounds are beautiful, well kept, and very private. It is exactly as the photos on the website depict. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and had a tough time leaving. Some advice for maximizing your stay at the caves- if you want something, just ask. While it is a... More

While The Caves is undoubtedly a nice resort, we received much less than expected for the price. We are frequent guests of Island Outpost, and have had good experiences at their other properties. THE GOOD: The property itself is unusual and fantastic. Our tour on arrival was exciting. There are several “secret” spots, such as a cave bar, a hidden... More

Picture having dinner in a cave, at water's edge, hundreds of candles and flowers. Once you have reserved the cave, it's yours for the evening. Our five-course gourmet meal was enhanced by the excellent attention of our waiter (Inron) who descended the stone steps throughout the evening with attentive service but without detracting from the intimate setting. His engaging smile... More

We just came back from a fabulous 5 night stay at the Caves with our two teenage sons. It was one of our best family vacations ever. The setting is spectacular, beautifully appointed and unique cottages are seemlessly set into the cliffs above beautiful blue waters. The grounds are impeccably kept, and soft jamaican music drifts in the background. There... More

Wife & I were at The Caves Feb. 15-20 for a little R&R. We had been reading all the great reviews for this place on trip advisor for the past year. Everything that we read was completely accurate. This place is truly a hidden gem. The resort was at 100% occupancy when we arrived, yet we did not see very... More

Before booking this vacation, I searched high and low for bad reviews on The Caves. I could not find ANY. I now know why! This place is absolute heaven. I have traveled many places and this has been the best vacation to date. My husband and I went for 5 nights to celebrate this past year...we had twins. We wanted... More

If I could spend everyday at The Caves, I would! Simple, the best experience you can imagine, the view unreal. From spa to service, it's the best hotel I have yet to experience!
