4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

3.5 stars for the resort, 4 stars for "glamping". I'm going to start with the bad and move on to the good. Please note that some of my opinions may be issues I had with the resort vs issues I think any reasonable person would have. 1.) Lack of air conditioned spaces even in the one place where there is...

My wife and I just returned from a 5 night stay at the Caves. I will try to keep this short since there are so many of these exact same 5* reviews on here they probably seem redundant, although it is hard to keep it short when talking about how great this place is. This is the best resort we... More

Upon arrival it admittedly took a moment for us to adjust to the rustic feel of the resort. It was our honeymoon and we had luxury in mind. We ended up experiencing the greatest luxury and service we've ever experienced once we settled in. The grounds are beautiful and I told my husband it's like a 3-D experience compared to... More

My husband and I just visited The Caves for the second time - our first visit was in 2010. It is the only place we would even think of going back to more than once as we like to experience new places. The Caves is so worth return visits and we hope to make our third visit as soon as... More

We just got back from our stay at the Caves and it was wonderful! I had such high hopes about this place and was worried that I would be disappointed - but was not in the least! The staff was so incredibly nice and helpful, the food was amazing (and I am quite the foodie), the scenery was incredible, and... More

Hands down the best resort I've ever been to. I read 100+ reviews on TripAdvisor and had high expectations prior to arriving. I was worried that I would "expect too much". It was even BETTER than I thought. This place far exceeded my already very high expectations. Amazingly beautiful. Amazingly romantic. Customer service is really good. Food is some of... More

We stayed there for 1 week from 26 June 2016. We had the Sun Dancer Suite. This is more like a 4 star Glamping/Camping holiday than a proper resort. There is no glass on the windows and no insect screens. It is a basic camping cabin with amenities. There is air-conditioning in the two rooms but not the sitting room.... More

Dear Rula A, Thank you for your review. We do appreciate constructive feedback that we can use to improve our service and offering.

My wife and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary here and I promised we would come back every 5 years. We just finished a week long stay celebrating our 10 year anniversary and it was better than I remembered. What makes it so special is it's small nature and how it's incorporated into the landscape. There are only 12 rooms... More

My wife and I spent a week at The Caves for our Honeymoon. It was the perfect choice even with no beach! The resort is small making it the perfect place to relax. There are many spots to lay out around the property and along the cliffs with stunning views overlooking the ocean. It has a small pool, but adequate... More

From the moment we arrived at The Caves we were treated like royalty. We had booked the Blue Hole Suite but were upgraded to the Stardust room. Let me tell you it is the best view on the whole island! We arrived on May 25 and stayed will the 30th. We watched the sunset from our private balcony every night.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
