Those were the first words offered to us upon arrival. Anything we should need from a pin to an anchor, just ask. And so our stay began. We were lucky enough to have 3 suites for the 7 of us- book as early as possible because demand if great. This was our second stay in 10 years & it's the... More

Last June several of my nieces and our daughters stayed in the 2-bedroom Owners Villa plus the Sundeck II Studio for one week. It was absolutely perfect for a girls' getaway! We loved spending time together on the huge porch overlooking the beach and ocean. It was our own private oasis right in the middle of a very long, beautiful... More

Thanks so much for your wonderful review, we all appreciate it. Nirvana is very well-maintained, clean and served by a friendly, helpful staff. Thanks for mentioning that if you are expecting a luxurious resort, this is not the place to come. However, if you want an unpretentious beachfront paradise, this is it! Nirvana is a unique property, the last great... More

We stayed in the Owner's Villa for 10 nights. It was perfect for our needs. It is right on the beach with a great patio. Staff was wonderful. Big thank you to Errol, Shine, Patrick, Moses, Sandra, Zemroy, Leona, Lynn and Joan for taking care of everything. We will be returning soon!!

This is hands down the best place to stay in Negril. We have visited Negril many times and will NEVER stay anywhere but Nirvana. Staff was great--shout out to Errol, Sandra & Moses! The lower Verandah Suite is by far the best. I am sure the upper is just as amazing. The beach was immaculate. The gardens and common areas... More

My wife and I have traveled to Negril 8 times staying at the all-inclusive resorts. We will only be staying at Nirvana from now on. This was the most relaxing vacation we have ever been on. We stayed 12-5 thru 12-13 in the lower Veranda suite. I could throw a rock and hit the ocean from the awesome porch. We,... More

I won't repeat what other reviews have already told you. The best place on the whole of 7 mile beach so don't look any further unless you need more luxuries accommodation. Just expect quite basic rooms with somewhat tired taps etc. but the best beach and views in Negril with nice staff to help you with whatever you need. Few... More

Just back after a week at Nirvana and four days at an all inclusive (another review) and now I can reflect on the experience. Let's set aside the lovely garden suite, the wonderfully attentative staff and the very well maintained garden for now. The very best part of Nirvana is that, to me, it is the best if Negril. As...
