Having read a negative review on Nirvana I just had to write my review. We were lucky enough to find Nirvana 15 years ago and have been returning at least once a year since. Last year at Thanksgiving we took our whole family for a week. Nine adults and 6 grandchildren. Only three of us had ever been there before... More

Nirvana is not what we expected. We arrived in the US Spring break - and for the first few days it was VERY noisy with loud music from the bar next door. The gardens are also not as nice as adverstised and the staff certainly not as helpful/available as we were led to beleive, although they were friendly. Having said... More

We just returned from a week at Nirvana (much too short) and were thrilled to find the same friendly, tranquil, inviting environment that we have experienced there many times over the years. This was the first time we stayed in the Upper Verandah suite and we just loved it. Nirvana may not be for everyone--if you want the cookie-cutter motel... More

My family has vacationed at Nirvana for the last six years. My daughter has virtually grown up there. The staff is always there for whatever you need, all you have to do is ask. The cabins and grounds are always well maintained and clean and because the cabins are off the beach, it's a quiet and restful vacation. Most of... More

Having been a guest at Nivana two times,2000,2004 and reading a negitive review recently,I must tell you that Nirvana is not high-rise luxury.It is a very relaxing and friendly resort.I would not think of staying anywhere else in Jamacia.

I went to Nirvana in September with 5 friends. The cottages were very clean, everything worked!! Being an American run hotel nothing was broken or not woking like other Jamaican hotels. The staff was great. We had a night watchman and a Beach watchman. We felt very safe. The girls cooked meals for us as we all pitched in and... More

I, and eventually my family, have been going to Negril almost every year since 1976, and since happenning upon Nirvana about 15 years ago we wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. There's nothing like the immediate peace that descends upon us at each return visit. Before discovering Nirvana I had been a traveler usually in the explorer mode, checking out new... More

My wife and I have been to Nirvana about twenty times and we would not consider staying at another location in Negril. We plan on returning again in January and can't wait to see the Gotlieb's and their staff (our away from home family) again. Their efforts to make use comfortable go far beyond our expectations every time we visit... More
