We had booked 8 nights at Nirvana and then moved over to the West End for 7 nights. After 3 nights in the west end, I decided we weren't leaving as planned. I extended us another 4 nights so we could return to Nirvana and the beach. I have been a frequent traveler to Jamaica, this was my 15th trip... More

This was our second time at Nirvana and it was every bit as good as we remembered! We brought friends with us that normally vacation in Ocho Rios. They much preferred this beautiful spot on 7 mile beach. Errol the daytime security guard was a fantastic help again, helping us with anything we needed!! We stayed in Cottage #1 this... More

Nirvana beach resort is not for the all inclusive crowd. The apartments and cabins/bungaloes are within feet of the beachside oceanfront location surrounding a lush central garden with a wifi hotspot in the palapa siting area in the middle. The staff are all very helpful and especially friendly when any inquirey is made of them. Beach vendors will stroll by... More

Nirvana is amazing. You have what feels like your own secluded beach. Errol is beach security and goes above and beyond. He can take care of whatever you need. Shine is also great. The entire staff welcomes you and is not intrusive. Sandra will help you make reservations and is very helpful. The grounds are kept beautiful thanks to Moses,... More

This was our fourth visit to Nirvana in five years and at this point it is difficult not to repeat myself. You have a perfect stretch of uncrowded beach, beautifully maintained grounds and comfortable rooms, but it is the people who make Nirvana what it is. In five years virtually all of the faces are the same. We are literally... More

My wife and have been to Jamaica 16 times and this is the first time we stayed all 7 days at a non all-inclusive resort. Didn't know what to expect with no bar or restaurant on the resort. I can tell you first hand how nice it is to invade another resorts restaurant and come back to the quiet beautiful... More

Quiet, peaceful, beautiful, and unlike any other place on Negril. You know you're at a special place when people on the beach constantly take photos of Nirvana. Sandra, Shine, Moses, Otis, and Arel are the best and have been working there for years. I can't recommend this place enough.

My husband and I recently took our first Caribean vacation and were lucky enough to stay at Nirvana on the Beach in Negril. We felt cared for, safe and oh, so relaxed due to the stunning setting on seven mile beach and the outstanding staff. We stayed in Sundeck 1 which has a private deck and overlooks the beach and...

Just got back from our second stay at Nirvana on the Beach and immediately booked again for next year. Nirvana is relaxing, beautiful and more charming the second time than it was the first. Seven straight days relaxing on the beach enjoying beautiful weather and the amazing crystal clear ocean. If your room has a full kitchen be sure to... More
