Samsara Cliffs Resort
Ranked #30 of 80 Hotels in Negril
Reviewed 18 March 2011

I stayed here with a few good friends and we had a great time! First of all the hotel is in a beautiful location. The view is absolutely amazing. We had a lot of fun laying out all day and just taking in the views. The staff was so sweet and took care of us really well the drinks were so good. Try the dirty banana! The restaurant across the street is probably the best place in Negril. We like to go to many places to eat when we travel but we went back to the restaurant twice because it was so good.

For the value its a great place. The staff and views make it worth it!

Wow... I had no idea Jamaica was such a beautiful island. Really happy we decided to stay on the cliffs. Reminded me of certain parts of the South of France. Samsara has these cool steps carved into the rock that take you right into the water or you can just jump off the cliff. Only about 14feet/4m high. Plus they have a sister property called Lengends, on the beach, and they offer a free shuttle between the two hotels a few times a day. Best of both worlds. If you're all inclusive it works at both hotels.
Great food. Staff were great. Can't complain and I can't wait to go back.

Get a room with an air conditioner. Besides that it is great. The food is amazing and the people working are so much fun. The remember you after the first night. The cliffs are fun to jump from and the sunset from the resort is amazing.

Negril is the most delightful Jamaican town--the people are friendly and the tourists aren't too tourist-y (read: no Ultimate Spring Breakers). And Samara is an easy respite from the hubbub of the beach.

The pool is quiet, the staff is fantastic, the views are gorgeous and the happy hour is cheap. Great views of the sunset, swimming off the cliffs and in the pools, and a delicious little Italian restaurant right across the street.

All around, the experience at samsara was great!

I've been here with a big group of friends the past two years and we love it! The food is yummy, the drinks are great and the shallow pool with lounge chairs in it is my favorite. Can't wait to come back again next year!

We planned to stay at Samsara for 1 week, but after 2 days we had enough.
We think we had the worst food at Jamaica, small room, a lot of noice from other guests, and the highest price in the Island at the resaurant Ciao.
But the staff was very nice and tried to do their best.

We just settled back into the New England winter after spending a wonderful eight day vacation
at the Samsara Resort in Negril, Jamaica. This was our third year at the Samsara and we seem to
love it more and more every year. This year we had a sea view cottage which was very spacious and quiet.
One welcome surprise was the new Italian restaurant “Ciao Jamaica “ which the Samsara opened last
fall immediately across West End Road from the hotel. They have good food ranging from pizza
to Lobster Diablo and it all tastes great.
The weather this year was almost perfect with a few rain storms coming in after dark to cool the evenings down nicely. On three separate days we took the free shuttle down to Legends, their sister hotel on
Seven Mile Beach. I cant describe the warm feelings you get from the personnel at both Samsara and Legends . Many have been there for years and in some cases I was greeted by name followed by “Welcome Home”. You just can’t get that from the big resorts who go through employees like they go through Rum.
We like going down to the beach to visit with the vendors many of which also remember you from years past and treat you with respect.
The singing troubadours on the beach are getting better each year. It’s a true Caribbean beach experience
when these musicians stop and give you a few good Jamaican songs for a couple of bucks in the hat.
The remainder of the vacation was spent in the solitude of the Samsara, sunbathing on the cliffs and relaxing at the Samsara sunset bar.
The menu at the Samsara had a few subtle changes but was as good as it has always been.
A special thanks to ALL of the staff at Samsara and Legends for making our stay there a memorable
time year after year. Both of these resorts have a certain Jamaican charm you don’t find at other places.
I always tell Linda that if I knew heaven was as pleasurable to me as the Samsara and Negril, I will die a happy man.
