Samsara is not for the primp traveler...it is for travelers who are laid back, like peace and quiet, a super friendly staff, and beautiful cliff side views of the ocean. If you need an ice machine, terry cloth robes, ect...this is not the resort for you. This is the type of resort where the staff become your friends...on our first night we saw a group of travelers on their last day having dinner and two of the dining staff sat with them and toasted to their visit.
I just came back from Negril, and had the best, most relaxing vacation I've ever had! And I travel quite a bit! On our flight home we were already planning our next stay at Samsara! I can't wait to go back!
Some Misc Tips on Jamaica:
Bring US dollars-they are the best bargaining chip...and bring small bills
Talk to the locals! They are not all tyring to rob you...obviously be wary but don't go with a closed mind assuming everyone is trying to get you. I would buy a bracelet from a vendor and he'd give me a hug and an extra bracelet for myself! THIS HAPPEND THREE TIMES TO US!
If you are going to stay at Samsara, bring beach towels...they're towels are a bit on the small side.
TIP!!!!! Most of the staff at these resorts have long commutes. Our buddy Dwayne from Samsara has an hour and a half commute one way and for the morning shift he has to be there at 6am! BE KIND AND TIP!! It will make a difference to the workers, and for your kindness they'll remember your orders and bring you drinks while you sit in the sun just b/c they 'think' you might be thirsty. Hardly anyone tipped when we went and it really upset us! These people work hard!
