“A Beautiful Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2009

As a large
group of 16, the accommodations were perfect. We were able to eat all
of our meals together, which was one of our main concerns in finding a
place. Also, we had more than enough space to congregate together and
spend a lot of time with one another. We enjoyed our time there more
than I can explain. The cabins were perfect for our needs and felt
homey and comfortable. Your staff was friendly, helpful, hospitable,
and welcoming. We enjoyed each of them greatly. By the end of the
week, we felt so comfortable around them and enjoyed the rapport we
had formed. The meals were delicious, the housekeeping clean, and the
security made us feel safe. Your beach access was unsurpassed. We
commented on this often when passing other resorts. There was plenty
of space, great beach chairs that your guards so kindly set out for
each of us every day, and the option to relax within the fenced in
area under shade was much appreciated by many in our group. We
enjoyed casual lunches and drinks there together during the day. It
was also nice to not have to vie for that space with other people.
The gardens were beautiful and the grounds impeccable. We took a lot
of pictures. These things are just to name a few, I could keep the
compliments coming. I hope to come
back to Nirvana many times in the future. My large family spanning 4 generations had a memorable experience, which we are still talking about, and
which will not be forgotten.

I've been to Jamaica3 other times...this 4th time was THE best, mostly because of my stay at Nirvana! You really can't beat the location...this place has the most beachfront of any of the other nearby properties. The grounds were kept immaculent every day and the abundant plantlife was unlike any I've ever seen! Our accommodations were beyond expectations...the beds were so comfy, and although cottage #2 didn't have A/C, it wasn't needed due to the tradewinds being blown via our ceiling fans (it kept the mosquitos off at nite!). The fully furnished kitchen allowed us to enjoy preparing our own authentic Jamaican meals and brew our Blue Mountain Coffee. We took advantage of the meal preparations offered by the staff and were treated to some of the best curried chicken ever! Anything we needed, any questions we had was handled and answered expeditiously. The men of security, Errol and 'Shine' made us feel completely safe and kept away any unauthorized pedestrians. If you're looking for serenity, tranquility, peace and quiet...beautiful beachfront and fabulous sunsets, then this is the place to stay...again and again...I'll be back very soon and plan to stay longer. Can't get this place outta my mind. Nirvana Negril 4Ever!

My boyfriend and i stayed here for a few nights . The rooms sizes are large , bathrooms are big and you have a seperate dressing area , this was good for me , i turned this area in my own powder room . The staff is friendly and will cook you meals depending on whatever you want ( its like having your personal chef ) It is very quiet here, and the grounds are beautiful , would visit here again

We arrived late on June 1st. Our flight from Orlando, Florida was delayed due to the Air France 427 that disappeared early that morning. We were patient and Air Jamaica was more than accommodating. The best part!: David was there when we arrived! He drove us straight to Nirvana. Even though we were late, our cottage was ready! Errol made sure we were settled in for the night. Our first impression was" RUSTIC"! Our first daylight impression was GREAT! If you require A/C or " exceptional first class accommodations, Nirvana is not for you! This is authentic Jamaica! David helped us with our shopping and was available at our request. Errol was our security -- it seemed day and night -- but we were always comfortable! Errol even awaited our return when we walked on the beach to dinner before sunset! Moses, who also kept the grounds immaculate!, greeted us when we returned after sunset. PLEASE know that several of the local restaurants provide "to and from" transportation -- you just have to check. I will do separate reviews on the restaurants we visited, but Kuyaba and Island Twist were at the top of our list. We also did Charela, but weren't quite as pleased as we were with the others. Here's the scoop: Kuyaba provides "to and from" transportation, Island Twist is just 4 properties down from Nirvana -- great for breakfast, lunch or dinner (shrimp scampi is over the top with garlic -- if you like garlic, was the best of all! Charela is good and just a few doors north of Nirvana, a bit over-priced, don't bother for lunch; dessert and coffee were good, service was just OK. Kuyaba beat all -- dinner twice -- conch stew was, whew!, the best, Snapper with callaloo was also quite tasty! Otherwise, kick back and enjoy every moment. Errol and Moses will be sure you aren't harrassed by the beacj vendors and will protect your beach stuff, even to the point of taking it inside while you are taking that wonderful walk on the beach. Margaritaville is a 15-minute walk to the north if you're into the huge party scene. Nirvana, on the other hand, does families or solos without a problem. You do need to know that there were several ginja transactions and users. The nudity, however, was very minimal -- on 2 topless ladies during our 6-day stay.

My husband and I were looking forward to laying on the beach and relaxing for our honeymoon and we were not let down. Nirvana surpassed all our expectations! The staff was amazing each and every one of them were helpful and we never wanted for anything. Our room was a cozy retreat when we had had enough of the beautiful water and sand for the day. We stayed in the Sundeck Suite and I would highly reccommend this room to anyone! The balcony is where we spent most of our time just privately relaxing and watching the waves. The room has an AC which we never turned on and we woke up every morning to the sound of the waves crashing. Since we had never been to Jamaica before we did some exploring to see if we had found the best spot on the beach, and we HAD! Some of the other places were right next door to loud clubs and bars but Nirvana is perfectly situated on a quite and large spot of the beach. We have no complaints whatsoever. We have done the fancy all inclusive mega resorts before but we loved being able to grab some local food off the beach or cook our own dishes in a laid back atmosphere. It was the best vacation ever and the fact that it was with my best friend and husband make it all the more perfect.

Nirvana is an excellent option to the "resort routine." It has a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and the staff will assist as needed with arranging water sports and day trips. It also has one of the best locations and beach fronts on Seven Mile Beach.

If your idea of a good time in Negril includes relaxation on the best stretch of beach 7 mile has to offer, then this is the place for you. Along with the natural beauty of the well kept grounds, comes a sense of privacy and peace and quiet that can be difficult to find at other properties. Staff and security was exceptional as well. Can't wait to go back.
