“Spectacular!!!!”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

Just got back yesterday from our BEST vacation ever! We stayed at Nirvana, again, and this trip exceeded all others. The staff, I just can't say enough nice things about everyone. It was truly amazing!
Our trip started with Breezy picking us up at the airport. (Even with a pre-arranged pick-up at the airport, Club Mobay was so very much worth it!!) Nicely tinted windows and great air conditioning make the car a mini-oasis in the heat! We stopped at Mega Mart for my first time. It was perfect - they do have everything - lots of imports as well as Jamaican brands - everything you could want.

We stayed in the upper veranda suite and it was everything and more. A small kitchen area with a full apartment fridge and freezer - large enough to hold our assorted fruit juices, bottled water, and of course the Red Stripes.

Having grown up in a large 4 season house on the beach, the furniture was exactly as I expect and want - bamboo. There were two nice chairs and ottomans inside, great for reading at night. But the best part was the veranda. We were out on that from 7 in the morning till late into the night. The veranda suites are less than 50 feet from the water...the view...well there are no words that begin to describe the feeling you get when you stand there...it takes your breath away and every trouble or worry is gone. This is home! This is my happy place!

Every day, Errol puts out chairs and side tables for every guest at Nirvana - spread out on the beach - sun or shade, depending on your preference. If you moved your chairs, he would remember your 'new' location for the next day. We always felt like we were on our own private beach.
The best part of the day on the beach is the morning. I was up and out in the water by 7:30 each day - snorkeling straight out from the beach. Nirvana is located far enough away from 'those big commercial' resorts that mornings are still quiet and peaceful.

But enough about the beach and the ocean, Nirvana is perfect for a vacation starting point. Nirvana offers a variety of accommodations in beautiful natural well cared for tropical gardens with a HUGE beach including plenty of palms and shade trees. No restaurants or bars on the property means that the only people on the property are staff and guests. Food and beverage as well as many activities can be found just steps from the property.

Nirvana lets everyone build their own vacation. The 'gotta keep doing things' crowd have more than enough in Jamaica to keep busy and those of us who are especially susceptible to sand gravity can enjoy the splendor that mother nature has bestowed to Negril in the form of the most picture perfect beach imaginable.
Housekeeping staff were quick, efficient, and practically invisible. On the one and only overcast day, we stepped out for a morning swim, and by the time we were back, the suite was cleaned and we had all new fresh towels.
Management was always available and checked with us several times to see how we were doing and checking to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. Everyone was so great and nice, we really did feel like we were family. We can't wait to go back - the sooner the better.

So many beach-walkers stopped and took pictures of Nirvana - everyone knows paradise when they see it! Nirvana is paradise, found!

We felt at home the minute we arrived. The cottage was clean and comfortable. The staff cooked daily for us-as good as Grandma's homemade! The beach was like our own private pool. The premises were lush and gorgeous with infinite kinds of flowers. We loved hearing the almonds hit the tin roof. Errol made sure no beach guys got too aggressive. We didn't mind no television. I would recommend this to any kind of travelers-it has universal appeal, and I hope to return soon!

Room Tip: The cottages have more cross breeze than the single units.

Nirvana takes great pride that we are so well-maintained, clean and served by a friendly,
helpful staff who will take care of everything for you.

If you are expecting a luxurious resort, this is not the place to come.

However, if you want an unpretentious beachfront paradise, this is it!

Nirvana is a unique property, the last great authentic Jamaican vacation rental experience on Negril Beach... with only 13 rentals on our 2 acre property in the CENTER of Negril beach.

We know you come to Negril for the BEACH life & to meet the colorful local people who make it such a special spot.

Whenever you want to return & we all have a warm welcome waiting for you.

Nirvana was an amazing spot for us to gather for our annual family vacation of 22 people ranging from 11 months - 80 years! Negril is definitely one of the best beaches on earth, offering an amazing "swimming pool" calm enough to float around on, big enough to keep the kids having a blast and clear enough for the most water wary guest.

The staff at Nirvana is amazing, and will take care of every need you have, from basic cleaning to mountainside adventures! Whether you have a specific trip in mind or want something recommended, one of the amazing things about Jamaica is the way staff will create a trip/service/etc to fit whatever needs or wants you have.

Accommodations are cool (and some have A/C if you need it) and clean, hammocks are abundant and the weather is (almost) always heavenly. You are family at Nirvana and truly will have "no worries".

Thanks for an awesome experience! Photos of the grounds by http://www.anyadurell.com/.

We were 3 boys aged 22, 24 and 30. We had an amazing time in Nirvana Negril. Hats off to all the staff who were friendly, courteous and very helpful. A special thanks to Errol who knew exactly who to refer us to for every activity we wanted to do. He made sure we were never scammed and also kept the hasslers on the beach away. They all know Errol and know better than to come on his turf. We stayed in the sun deck II. Very private and amazing view from the balcony where you can sit and have breakfast. We went snorkelling a few times and it was a lot of fun. Beach was empty when we stayed so it was like you had your own private beach. It was awesome. I'd definitely come back.

Well once again I hit the jackpot on the 7 mile beach in Negril. Nirvana on the beach is a great place to relax and be treated like family. I cannot remember everyone's name so instead it will be best that I include all in my opinion. Lonnie your staff here is awesome. My respect to all. You made our stay here very pleasurable and we cannot wait for our chance to return. If you need transportation Breezy is the man!
What a wonderful visit! Thanks again for making our time in Jamaica one of our best vacations ever. One love people!

My 11 year old daughter and I just returned from 6 nights at Nirvana. If you are looking for a 5 star mega resort experience with all the amenities this will not be your cup of tea. If you are looking for a tranquil, relaxing getaway where you are treated as a treasured guest read on.
From our first contact my child and I were met with kindness. The booking process wirh Lonnie was easy and efficient. We were met at the airport by Breezy our driver. He was on time and very informative. Breezy offered to stop so we could stock up on groceries. We were just too tired after a long travel day from California. So instead he stopped and picked up some delicious jerk chicken for us at a roadside stand. Breezy was available during our stay as needed for transportation and consistently kind especially to my sometimes challenging child
As far as housekeeping; our rooms were cleaned every morning and towels replenished by the time we returned each morning from the beach. We stayed in cottage four which although not directly on the beach was just a few steps away and had a lovely view of the grounds and beach from the front room. The grounds are simply beautiful and someone was constantly raking, trimming etc to maintain them.
As a senior and single woman who travels with my special needs child safety is always a concern. The security staff at Nirvana is very deligent and protective of guests. I never felt unsafe or had concerns about such during our stay. Also the guests Nirvana seems to attract were all were very pleasant and kind of looked out for each other. The smallness and quaint quality of this property does not seem to attract rowdy, obnoxious types.
As far as general tips on Negril: For breakfast an easy option is right next door on the right when facing the beach. Up a few stairs is a bar and grill. The grill serves breakfast starting at 8am. You can get an omlette for only 8.00 banana pancakes for only 6.50 etc. They also serve lunch. The bar served the best pina colada during happy hour I ever had. 2 for one drink specials on diffferent drinks each day. There are guys that come along the beach serving meat patties also. Also about 9am a guy comes by with delicious pastries each day. There are many other opti9ns up and down the beach. Also, for groceries just grab a taxi out front they will drive by and stop. Go to the Hi lo grocery all the way downtown at the plaza it is much bigger than the closest one and there are shops with good bargains for souvenirs. Do not pay more than four dollars for taxi to town. The Hi lo is in the back of the plaza and there is a store in front on the corner run by a lady named Joy that has good prices. From the front of Nirvana you can walk to the left a block or two across the street for good jerk chicken at Best in the West little food stand. To the right of Nirvana in front about 1/2 mile down, an easy walk, is Times Square shopping center. They have an ATM that gives US currency but the fee is 5.00. Shop 3 has best prices on t shirts and shop 5 has best prices on coffee. You can bargain especially if buying more than one item.
Do go to Ricks to see the divers. It is a treat. Also you can cave snorkel at Xtabi. Best snorkeling is to right of restaurant facing ocean. Bring your own snorkel equipment as you will be charged to rent theirs. If you order wven just a sandwich expect to wait at least an hour or more for your food even if the restaurant is empty!!! Ys falls is great especially the zip lining. Also for catamaran I recommend Keith think he is # 77575 yellow sails. He gave more than our money's worth. Captain Kirk glass bottom boat was a rip off for snorkeling. Did not deliver what was promised!!! I would not use again. I heard from others Captain Mike glass bottom for snorkeling was very good. Bring lots of $1 bills for tipping, everyone takes
US money. Also bring at least 75uv sunscreen and plenty of deet or skin so soft bug spray. The mosquitos and sand fleas arw ferocious. Lastly, the office manager is very gracious and will allow you to print out your boarding pass from the office whuch made rhings alot easier. There are no phones or tvs un the rooms so just unplug and enjoy.

Just returned from our fantastic vacation. Stayed in the ground floor Veranda Suite which was fantastic. Amazing beach view with excellent beach access. This place is exactly as described on their website; clean, comfortable, beautiful gardens and terrific location. While walking on the beach we noticed several of the places we were considering for vacation...SO glad we went with Nirvana! We enjoyed the no-fuss atmosphere and cannot say enough about the staff. Thank you to everyone for making our vacation one of the best ever. Special thanks to Errol and Shine for your watchful eyes! I would recommend Nirvana to anyone wanting an authentic Negril vacation.

Room Tip: Loved the Veranda Suite for beach access, just walk out the patio door and you're right there...
