Samsara Cliffs Resort - Negril

Does the Samara Cliffs Resort in Negril have good snorkeling? Has anyone stayed in the Pillar Huts (June / July). I see they do not have a/c...were they too hot to sleep or enjoy? They look awesome but not sure if they are comfortable.

Thanks for any assist..

Samsara probably has some good snorkling, just not as good as it used to be---any cliff resort is going to be fun snorkling off the cliffs with the occasional moray eel and lots of small colored fishies.....

Never stayed at Samsara---it's been there for years...I would not like to stay on the cliffs without A/C....

Haven't stayed at Samsara but stayed elsewhere on the cliffs in June without A/C and it was miserable, never again. You may get some breezes but won't be enough to keep you comfortable. Would definitely reconsider that.

We stayed at the Samsara last April in a pillar house and we didn't find it too hot ... but we have never been to Negril in June/July. - so that could be a different story. We snorkeling around the cliffs and it was Okay, the sea was very rough for a few days so it was difficult to see much of anything. Your best bet is to call Vincent and go snorkeling to the reef . We just found wearing your snorkel gear and fins made it easier to swim around there. We did enjoy our Pillar view of the dolphins jumping around ... that was real treat!

I know June/July can be hot & humid here at home ~ would imagine it's smoking hot in Negril. I'd go with one of the air-conditioned rooms instead of a pillar.

agree with the A/C recommendation for that time of year, we have been in early-mid April and were fine but went in July and had many sleepless nights and it was in a well screened/ceiling fan cottage in the cliffs, very close to sea.
