My first thought of Nirvana on the Beach was paradise. This was our third trip to Jamaica but our first trip to Negril and Nirvana. We went with friends that had been here 3 yrs ago and they swore to us that we would love it. At first we were a little nervous after booking it as it is not... More

I will list the reasons for staying at Nirvana and why I will be back. 1) Location- you will not get a better location on 7 mile beach. Nirvana splits it in half. (perfect!!) 2) Staff- The staff was incredible. This was my first time their but most of the guests were repeat customers and the staff is the reason.... More

Nirvana! Nirvana is defined as the state of enlightenment or an idyllic place. I must say that this is a very apt name for the place we stayed at in Negril. My husband and I travelled to Jamaica for a family vacation with our daughters (ages 6 and 9). We arrived in Montego Bay, zipped through customs, and met Leon,... More

We are home from our first stay at Nirvana and we both agree it was superb. The beach and gardens are beautifully maintained and not crowded. All of the staff were friendly and would help us with whatever we needed. It was very easy living, and a wonderful introduction to true Jamaican hospitality. This was my first tropical vacation, and... More

Nirvana is our kinda place! My Wife and I stayed in the Sundeck II Suite, an it was great. The mini kitchen allowed us to have morning coffee on our private elevated balcony overlooking the beach each morning. Eril (beach chair attendant) made sure that our chairs were in the exact same spot each day, and prevented any unwanted solicitations... More

Just returned from week vacation with 4 kids. It was perfect. The grounds are gorgeous. The beach was nice and clean, not too crowded. You felt safe and felt kids were safe. It was just super nice. People were friendly and nice. They had beach toys on hand for kids. Best fruit ever right to your door. Steps from the... More

Our party of eight (four couples) just returned from nine day vacation to Nirvana. This was our first visit and it far exceeded our winter getaway expectations. If you are looking for a Cancun party nightlife experience search elsewhere. However, if you are looking to relax in an authentic Jamaican style this should satisfy that desire. The real secret is...

At this point…There is NO other place in this world other than Nirvana in Negril, Jamaica! After 15 years of at least once a year, we STILL feel this is truly our HOME! After only 6 months ago to celebrate our 25th year anniversary,(July 2014) Dave and I both looked at each other this past Oct. and said…WE NEED TO... More

It was 3 couples in cottage #1. The cottage is small but it wouldn't stop me from staying there again. The cottage reminds me of cabins in Lake Tahoe. The cottage has air but it was broken at the time. It has a bathroom inside and the 2nd bathroom outside. The location is perfect. It's walking distance From Margaritaville. The... More

Our family of 6 came to Nirvana and absolutely loved it. The beachfront property is the largest of all the resorts around it, because of the absence of a restaurant\bar. The staff was extremely friendly and inviting, cooking us many delicious Jamaican dishes or helping us with bargaining with vendors on the beach, whom we recommend for fresh fruits and... More
