This place is exactly as billed - a quirky, beautiful place where you can literally take stairs right off your room and dive into the gorgeous turquoise blue waters. People are super friendly and helpful. If you are expecting elegance, go elsewhere as rooms are basic but for our family it was terrific.

My favorite place in Negril! Beautiful views and quirky rooms! The staff is so very kind and helpful and the owner Susan keeps a watchful eye on everything. The rooms each have a fridge to keep your drinks cold! Can't wait to return! The seas kicked up quite a bit on our last visit and luckily there was a room... More

We have stayed at other places in Negril - other cliffside lodgings that kept raising their prices year after year to the point where we just could not take the sticker shock anymore. We have stayed at Blue Cave Castle (in 3 different rooms there) and been delighted every time. My advice: Consider (seriously) the Blue Cave Castle if what... More

I love this place for price, ambiance, and location.. Its not for everyone, just the self-sufficient , non resort minded type. Could use a lifeguard as well someone who cares about the guest's basic needs. ...especially the needs of tourists...if implemented will give a 5 star!

I have stayed at this wonderful location for many years (more than 10). The grounds are comfortable and the rooms attractive. The penthouse room has an outdoor spa! There is swimming access to the sea with an outdoor shower. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The owner is most welcoming! You can sunbath on the lawn overlooking the cave or... More

The bricks & mortar are still there but the heart & soul of this place are gone for me. With the closure of Teddy's Hideaway Eatery and the dismissal of long-time manager Petrona, it's not the same. Time for this regular to move on. Teddy can be found at Negril Treehouse on the beach!

We spent four nights in the penthouse, You go up two flights of stairs then you enter the bottom part of the penthouse, this part is a large open area half shade and half there is a shower and a bathroom. Two lounge chairs for private sunning. Go up one more flight of stairs to the guest room and a... More

This was our second visit to Negril, and we stayed at Blue Cave Castle. The location is absolutely perfect - you can walk a few minutes in both directions to find wonderful local restaurants and bars. A short cab ride gets you to the beach, the bank, or the cambio. The L+M grocery is right across the street. The price... More

This is a unique place to spend a few days. The rooms are a good size and the hotel is clean. The true beauty of the place is the access to the water! You can walk down a stair case to a private area and swim right off the rocks into beautiful coral reefs. We saw more fish, turtle and... More
