We cannot stop talking about how much we loved this "resort". We came for a week long honeymoon. We stayed in the Sea Turtle, which we loved. The room was very comfortable, the a/c cooled the whole room- bed and pillows were comfy. French press coffee in the room and fully stocked mini fridge refilled daily. Housekeeping kept our room...

First, let's just say, we loved this place. Looking out on the water every day is as good as it can be. Let me talk about each aspect. The ride over from the airport is long, but not terrible. It's not a boring ride as you go through towns and see the country. Check in was a breeze since this... More

My husband and I have visited Negril many times in the last several years. While we almost always stay on the cliffs, October 2015 was our first time at the Caves. Friendly staff, nice rooms and an exceptional Caves dinner. We visited 5 days for a milestone birthday and had a great time. There did not seem to be as... More

From the minute we set foot on this property, It was evident that this resort would live up to our expectations. All of the tension left. Extremely friendly staff and beautiful views. The food was amazing. The cave dining is a must. Karen runs a class act resort. Will definitely be returning.

My husband and I just returned from our incredible honeymoon at The Caves and we can't say enough about our great experience there. We miss it already! It was everything we dreamed of for our special week. The reviews you have read about feeling like you were at someones home rather than a resort is the perfect way to describe... More

My wife and I stayed at the Caves for a long weekend during a stressful time in our lives; this place may have saved our lives! From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, we felt like guests in a millionaire's private retreat. The location is exquisite, with numerous equally beautiful spots on the cliff to set up...

Wow, what an unbelievable trip to the Caves! My wife and I like to travel a lot, but mostly have spent time in Hawaii and different parts of Mexico....never Jamaica...until now.

The Caves is a hidden secret of romance and perfection. Located in Negril it is by far worth the travel from Mo Bay. I went with my husband for our 10 year anniversary. Although you can relax all day and eat fabulous food and lay in the sun we like adventure too. So we snorkeled the property, explored caves, kayaked... 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
