The Caves sits along the limestone cliffs of the West End of Negril, right next to the famous Negril Lighthouse in Jamaica. Although situated only a few miles away from the bustling town center, this private enclave is a world apart. Eleven handcrafted wood and stone thatched-roof cottages, plus a 4-bedroom fully self-contained luxury villa, are interwoven between ten acres of lush vegetation and naturally formed volcanic caves. Quaint stone pathways wind through the limestone cliffs dotted with palm, sea grape and dogwood trees overlooking the Caribbean Sea. An arrangement of coral stairs and walkways lead to sundecks with uninterrupted views of the sea and sky, and grottos with turquoise water pools and fossilized marine life. A tropical reef system comes right up to the edge of the cliff, perfect for snorkeling. Guests can climb down ladders into the sea or take a leap from several “jump points,” the highest of which is 30 feet! An intimate, private and unique resort, The Caves is perfect for romance and relaxation.The Caves generally does not accept children under 16 years old. Exceptions must be cleared with the hotel management.

My wife and I have been to the Caves twice in the last two years. Perfect place for a couples get away. Celebrated our 25th anniversary their Dinner in The Cave was amazing, couples massage is a must. Add inclusive and the food was 5 star. Heading back this winter. Not inexpensive but worth every penny

The whole place is set up so that you feel like you are the only people there. The social hour, rum tasting at the rum bar, and dinner are with with other vacationers but soon they become like old friends so it's still really special and semi-private. Be sure to experience a cave dinner if you can! This has been my favorite tropical vacation destination so far! Advice/Tips: Use the mosquito netting and don't take showers too late when then are hungry!! Enjoy a sunset (or two) in the pool with a frozen beverage in hand. Order dessert! Jump - even if its just from the low landing, just jump! Ask the staff - they are beyond helpful, anything you need just ask (tip them too, they deserve it).

If you wish to see the tropical paradise of Jamaica and stay at a resort that is one of a kind, "The Caves" is for you. Top notch staff, helpful, kind and warm. I was there for 15 nights and since then, all I do is wish to return. You well too.

Our family of 5 + 2 friends were planning a trip to Jamaica and we found The Caves as we were searching for a place that had a house/villa for all of us together. When we arrived, we were given welcome drinks during the check-in process and then given a tour by Leon. Because we were staying in the Clandestino (villa), Leon was our butler. He was amazing from tour thru our checkout. We loved the villa, but missed being right near the water. Very spacious with lovely rooms, but has dim lighting. The 4th bedroom is not in the main house. It is a separate little annex building next to the house, We had some picky eaters and were concerned about the set menus, but it all worked out. Each meal they made sure there was something we liked. Every meal was delicious! The last night, Leon arranged a beautiful outdoor table and had a birthday cake made for one of the group -- above and beyond! We love the all-inclusive option -- makes it easy. The entire staff was phenomenal! Leon! Melecia made THE BEST drinks for us! Jomo and Earl, the lifeguards, made jumping off the cliffs even more fun! In the past, we have stayed places on the beach, but we did not miss having a beach. We loved just hanging out in the lounge chairs, jumping off the cliffs, floating in the sea, and exploring the caves! The maximum number of guests is less than 40 people, which allows you to meet many of the other guests. With a small number of guests, you always feel very attended to! We highly recommend The Caves!

We didn't actually stay at this hotel but visited for dinner in one of the Caves. One word just wow. From start to finish this was an amazing experience. The sound of the water crashing against the cave whilst we had a delicious 5 course meal is something i will never forget. Definitely worth a visit.
