We stayed at The Caves for three nights after six nights at the Iberostar with a group of nearly 50. My husband and I moved to The Caves for a few days of quiet relaxation, and couldn't have been happier. Though we had some transport issues, we didn't book that through the hotel and it was no fault of theirs.
We arrived hot and hungry, and they promptly gave us a cold towel, a drink and led us to lunch. We then got our room (Macka Tree), which was just gorgeous and spacious. We only used the AC at night (and definitely used the mosquito net, if for no other reason than it made me feel like a princess).
The food is fantastic, and you should never feel bad asking for more/seconds or a combination! Paul, the lifeguard/activities guy, is awesome, as is the rest of the staff. Paul's available to do activities with the guests every day, though we only did a couple of cliff jumps and that was it.
The property is well-maintained, and we found ourselfs on a different ledge/cliff each day to sunbathe, which was really fun. It's definitely a quiet, secluded vibe (we were in bed by 10pm each night!) but that's absolutely what we wanted after six crazy nights at a mega-resort.
I don't like to repeat trips, but if I did - I would come back to The Caves.
- 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
