After 3 visits to Jamaica and having stayed at Samsara for all 3. All we can say is that it is our home away from home. We are not looking for a 5 star and if you are, go somewhere else. We like that its clean, staff is friendly ( love you guys, Hey Melvin, Patricia & Sloaney to name only a few of the hard working staff ), felt secure, its quiet, relaxing, excellent view of the sunset, fun and did i mention if your into the vacation thing its RELAXING.
The cliffs are so cool, we jumped and dove for the first time this year and will definitely bring snorkel gear next year. Some people say the pool is small - well its bigger then the one we have at home, it cools you off and again its fun. As for towels - go buy one...enough said.
Food - haven't eaten here, we like to travel the town and eat what we want when we want, we do understand why people do the all inclusive, whatever works for ya.. If you check on TripAdvisor there are 128 restaurants to choose from in Negril ( Pablo's for breakfast is a must, Caio Jamaica is pricey but excellent, Ahhh bees for the best burgers anywhere, Niahs patties again excellent, 3 dives for jerk chicken is very good )
As for the beds, well its a hotel, have slept in worse, your never going to get the feel of your own bed. Besides if you spent the day the way you should, then falling asleep isn't an issue.
Yes we agree Samsara is a little dated, but I wonder does everyone not have that reno at home they'd like to do? From what we've seen they are improving things all the time.
Rooms ( have stayed in 3 different ones ) what can i say its a hotel room, didn't spend much time in it. It was clean. shower was huge and lots of hot-water, tv turned on and off - works for me. We have to have air conditioning ( we needed that retreat once in awhile ) hey its -20 at home, not used to the sun.
air conditioner broke down one time and they fixed it right away.
Bottom-line - Love it here and recommend it to everyone we know.
Will we be back? Bet on it!
