The food at this restaurant was the best we had in Negril. I had the Lobster and Red snapper. I am definitely going back before we leave. The service was very good and everyone was so friendly. Our table was on the top of The restaurant and it felt like we ate in a treehouse

We often go to the restaurant. Great prawns, decent escovitch and lobsters right off the grill. We usually stay in a condo way down the beach but were laid over last year and had to move out of our condo. After a bad experience at another budget place further down the beach, we moved there and stayed there a couple... More

My family and I had an amazing stay here, the staff was so friendly and helpful. I found as long as you ask for what you need or require the staff are willing to go above and beyond to assist. The rooms are lovely so comfortable and clean very well taken care of, if you need more towels just ask... More

The hotel has a lot of potential. But the following needs improvement; 1. Check in process is horrific. The practice of requesting a USD30 key deposit is unheard of. An additional safe deposit fee of USD100 is required. Again a world first. 2. The rooms have no bottled water. 3. Beach towels are in short supply and staff seem nonchalant... More

This is my tenth time to Jamaica (in 1,5 years) but this is really the worst hotel I've been to. Don't be fooled with the pictures of the rooms it doesn't look anything like it AT ALL. The rooms are OLD especially the Cottages, trust me you don't wanna sleep in there it is old, smells really bad and it... More

Hi Patricia Z- It is unfortunate that you did not enjoy your stay with us at Kuyaba. Our website was updated in 2016 and the photos taken from October 2015 through to April 2016. I don't really believe our property has changed or become' old' in that time to misrepresent what it looks like. The last thing that we want... More

I had a rehearsal dinner here for 33 guests. I contacted Kuyaba prior so that everything could be arranged, and although they were always very pleasant to talk to, it was very difficult to get a response. However, in the end I couldn't have been happier with how everything turned out. All my guests raved about the dinner they had,... More

We had excellent service today at Kayaba! Our server worked really hard to ensure we had a pleasant experience. Tonight was a super hot night so we were happy to have the fans cooling is down. (The fans helped reduce the bugs too) We were served the most delicious bread, we asked for a second round it was so delicious.... More

(Stay: May 24th to May 27th, 2016) Kuyaba is beautiful. The grounds are nice, the beach access is great. But, the front desk is terrible! I chose to stay there after having eaten there on previous visits to Negril. I was enticed by the great setting and property appeal! I originally booked for the full 8 nights, but changed my...
