We returned to The Caves because I loved the food so much last time we were there and couldn't find anything as good on our last trip.
After staying other places, I really appreciate the fine details. We stayed in Moonshadow again, what a view from the upstairs deck! From the design of the rooms themselves to the sculpture and art scattered around the common areas, there are so many nice touches.
I only have a few things they could improve. One is that there is very limited lounging area with shade. I think in a hotel of this caliber, one shouldn't have to claim space early in the morning. Given the limited property it sits on, I don't know how they could fix that problem easily.
The other is that in between meals, it can be difficult to find a bartender. Even at happy hour, sunset, there are usually no people at all at the bar, so it can get a bit boring. Granted, when there is no bartender, you can just help yourself, but I like to have some of their complicated blender drinks. For what they charge for rooms, they should have staff walking around taking drink orders during the day.
I enjoyed taking their (brand new) mountain bikes out for rides in the morning.
- 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
