My husband and I were married at The Caves in late November. It was just the two of us, and they put on a beautiful ceremony complete with flowers, cake, great minister, a photographer and a unique setting. Where else could you take care of every wedding detail for only $1,000? The wedding service is a great option if you want a small or private wedding, and are happy with what the package offers and don't want a lot of extra things or have tons of detailed requests (this isn't a major resort churning out 100's of weddings a year). Our wedding was special, romantic and wonderful and we couldn't have been happier.
We stayed at The Caves for one week, as our honeymoon following the wedding. I have never stayed at an all-inclusive that is this small, and I had a great time getting to know the other guests. We even held an inpromptu poker tournament one night! The staff is wonderful and beyond nice, they are the ones who make your stay truly special.
We stayed at the Stardust, and really appreciated the privacy of being on the far side of the property, and having a cottage all to yourself. The rooms are very cute, and as other have said, clean and unique and special, but you're not at the Ritz so don't expect marble tile and luxury. We loved our adorable cottage.
We spent all day lounging by the water, and had no problem finding chairs and shade when we wanted it. You MUST do the snorkling with Paul, he's so knowledgeable and sweet. The food was excellent, the cocktails were outstanding and overall it was a wonderful and relaxing vacation.
We did everything that was suggested on this board - the snorkling guided tour, the hot tub, the caves dinner and massages at the spa. I recommend all of them - they're worth it! Also, jump into the blue hole. It's not nearly as scary as it looks. Oh, and I highly recommend bringing high DEET bug spray. Many guests did not get bit, but my husband and I were bit a lot. If you tend to get bit bring good bug spray!
We had one problem mar our otherwise perfect trip. It was a rather major issue, and while devastating I wouldn't have expected much of a resolution from any hotel. I won't even mention it here, as the Caves management went to UNBELIEVABLE effort to resolve this issue. The measures that they've taken will ensure this problem never happens again. And that is what singles out The Caves as a resort unlike any other.
- 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
