I found the hotel on tripadvisor & really wanted to stay here but unfortunately we couldn't book for just the one night. So I booked up the private cave dinner as a surprise for my boyfriend.
On the day afternoon of our booking I received a mail to explain that we couldn't dine in the cave due to choppy sea & asked to reschedule or offered another table as an alternative. We took the alternative due to only being in Negril for the one night.
I was so upset, but had no need to be. Arrived 45 mins early as we decided to leave rick's cafe earlier. Not a problem. We were taken directly to a bar where we had cocktails with a view before dinner. Our personal waiter Glenn collected us for dinner & when we arrived at the table I actually felt pleased the cave was unavailable. We were on a private table on the cliffs above the cave. Completely candlelit with petals everywhere, it was so beautiful & the view was perfect. Glenn was amazing. Such a great waiter, brilliant service. The food was great, especially the starters.
It was a perfect evening & we intend on staying at the caves for a couple of nights next time we're in Jamaica.
- 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
