We got married in Negril at Beaches, & went to the Caves for our honeymoon. We couldn't have been happier. It was an adjustment going from the big resort with so much to do to such a romantic, quiet resort, (where doing very little was encouraged!) but it was perfect. The best way I can describe it is it felt like home - or we were staying in someone's beach home. It didn't feel like we were at a resort - the staff is so wonderful & friendly.
There isn't too much left to be said that hasn't been said in other reviews - the food is fantastic, the soups are amazing, the banana pancakes were great. No complaints at all. The sunset hot tub was very romantic, & the cave dinner was really cool. Ask Paul to take you snorkeling - he was a great guide. We found ourselves in the middle of a huge swarm of jellyfish, & he helped get us out quickly.
The jumps are fun, but be careful! I bruised my butt jumping into the Blue Hole but I'm glad I did it. Ask Paul for some jumping tips.
The reviews complaining about anything are laughable - I guess you just can't please some people. We couldn't find one single thing to complain about.
Bring bug spray - I got bit a lot (but it is the tropics people) but I also get bit at home in the midwest. So no surprises there.
The entire time we were there we talked about when we were coming back. It can't come soon enough.
- 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
