“Bliss”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

The nicest, most accommodating staff we have ever encountered. The grounds are lush with exploding flowers, palms and bougainvillea's. Every time I saw a catamaran go by, I felt so lucky that we were staying at Catcha. The cove is great for snorkeling, and the views are magnificent. It will be very hard to travel anywhere else now that we have stayed here.

Room Tip: Not all rooms are air conditioned, but our friends said it did not bother them.

Had no problem emailing back and forth for information and general inquires.
The staff was more than helpful..
Not only were we able to make a reservation but at the same time made a dinner reservation at Ivan's...Where the view is spectacular and the food is great...

My husband Shawn and I were married at Catcha Falling Star in July 2013. Andrea and Mauvette helped to make all of the arrangements for the wedding, mainly through email, and they were always prompt in responding to questions and requests. We had 50 guests and many of those guests stayed on the property through the weekend. Ivan's staff was very friendly and the food was quite good. Our wedding took place on the cliffs and the weather could not have been better. The reception was a blast, from the MC, to the DJ, to the food & cooks, to the servers, to the bartenders, to the decorations... In short, the staff was phenomenal and the location utterly stunning. We highly recommend Catcha Falling Star.

We just returned from CFS and let me say that place is wonderful. We had originally booked the Pisces room (which is a great value with its amazing outdoor shower) but due to the air conditioner going out we were able to arrange an upgrade to the sky cottage. Omg the sky and coral cottages which are the newest editions are awesome. The view is breathtaking. IMO the coral cottage on the bottom is a little better b/c it has a wraparound porch. However hands down the Sagittarius cottage is the best one there. You will not find better hospitality than what they provide at CFS. Try the Banana Pancakes for breakfast and the calypso trio for lunch. My mouth is watering thinking about it. Can't wait to come back. Wish I was still there.

Again I have visited Negril, Jamaica and have stayed with this hotel for the third time now, and all I can say is that is was great the first time, but somehow it keeps on getting better! Love the staff and their excellent fare at the Ivan's Bar! Definitely worth every penny and will be going back! The property is so beautiful with lush gardening and tropical plants growing all over and is simply stunning. Just a few properties before you reach Rick's with the legendary sunset views, Catcha is absolutely perfect!

We just returned from Catcha on 8/31 after 6 wonderful nights! I have to admit we got off to a somewhat "rocky" start. First of all, I'm not sure if it was the time of day and no one was on duty but we had to carry our own bags to our room (up a flight of stairs). We booked Aries and when we arrived, we found the living room area to be incredibly hot, then after being in the room 10 minutes, the toilet malfunctioned when flushed and water seeped out from under it. The staff was very apologetic and we were moved to Gemini II. It was way too small for our taste, but we were told that either the toilet in Aries would be fixed or we could move to another room. The next day, to our total delight, we were moved to Coral Cottage. This place is magnificent!! In my opinion, it is the ONLY choice. The view is phenomenal, the large verandah is fantastic, and because it is one room, the air conditioner is super-effective. The room was impeccable in terms of cleanliness, the staff was incredibly friendly, called us by name and always went the extra mile to make sure we were satisfied, the grounds were beautiful. I could go on! The food was good, especially breakfast (although the coffee wasn't quite as good as most Jamaican Blue Mountain types I've tasted). Overall great time - I highly recommend it!!

Room Tip: Coral Cottage is perfect in every way

My wife and I stayed here in 2011 and I have nothing bad to say about the staff or or the property. We initially were checked in to an upstairs room, in the newer building, which I believe was Aries for two nights until our our ultimate destination, Libra was available. While the Libra room could have used a significant upgrade at the time, I could not argue that the location or the property could be better as it could not. It was an awesome experience and should I return to Jamaica, I would stay here again in a heart beat. Thanks to everyone and especially Wayne who served as our guide into the Jamaica back county and as the penultimate guide.

Room Tip: Libra was awesome.
