“wonderful getaway”
Reviewed 14 May 2005

We just got back from Nirvana on the Beach and had an amazing time. It is not for those who want to be pampered and stay in a modern fancy hotel but for those of you who want a place that feels like home and is peaceful, quiet, and beautiful this is the place for you. The cottages were clean and the staff were great. It is a very quiet small place and very private. We made friends with others staying there and loved the relaxing atmosphere, laying in the hammocks reading a good book, fresh squeezed OJ every morning and beautiful gardens surrounding us, what more could you want.
We hope to return some day!

We stayed in one of the Verandah Suites for about 5 days and it was perfect. The staff was very nice, but what we liked most was the unique character of this location. You're not at a large hotel, you've got the beach to yourself, and the Veranda, well it's like having your own home on the beach. The hotels are nice, but if you want to be ALONE try Nirvana. Particularly nice if you're idea of a vacation is to just relax, in privacy, and stroll to the beach from time to time.

If you're looking to unwind, spend time on the best beachfront in Negril, be catered to by a friendly and efficient staff, and leave all of your worries behind, Nirvana is the place to go. The gardens are beautiful, there is plenty of privacy due to the limited number of rental units on the property and all of the best food and entertainment in Negril is just a casual stroll down the beach.

We're already planning on going back again next April, but for two weeks instead of one.

For the past eight years my family has vacationed at Nirvana. We have learned to pick the appropriate time to visit. The group of musicians from Chicago just picked the wrong time to visit. Spring break activitities are posted on many Negril websites. The entertainment "Zone" west of Nirvana normally is quiet and a great spot to eat one of Niah's Patties.

We just returned from Nirvana. As many reviewers have said, Nirvana IS a wonderful piece of property. Few cabins, lotsa space. We are a family of musicians and go to Jamaica partly because of the music. However, a stone's throw away from Nirvana is a place called THE ZONE, an open area set up with an enormous sound system that pounds Jamaican gangsta rap, fragments of disco, screeching vocals, pounding bass. The music starts at noon and doesn't let up until 2 am on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and until 10 pm during the week. We were miserable. We complained to Nirvana management, security, and the police. Everyone claimed nothing could be done. We took 2 rooms across the street at White Sands Hotel one night just to be assured of a night sleep.

We were told this happens during spring break, but I would not take my chances and return to Nirvana because of it. I'm very upset that the owners did not tell us about this problem, but I suspect they don't want to lose business.

I vacationed at Nirvana almost 8 years ago for our honeymoon and it was so fabulous. The staff was wonderful, helpful and a ton of fun. It's great to see so many wonderful reviews of one of our favorite destinations -- can't wait for our 10th wedding anniversary when we will return to Nirvana.

I liked the low stress living and being in a cabin away from television and telephone.

Having Just Reurned from Jamaica and spending the nost decompressed and relaxing time at Nirvana In Negril, I can only say it was the most chilled, apart from the Red Stripe Beer, uninterupted and uplifting time on a pernanant basis for 7 nights where I felt it was a privilege to part apart of Nirvana and feel like one of the Family.

Everybody who worked at Nirvana looked after me like one of there own. It was refreshing to see how everybody took pride in what they did whether it was the Gardeners who made sure the grounds and tropical Fauna always looked beautiful, making sure the perfectly private beach was swepted each morning and a special thankyou to Barnie who always watched over everything like a guardian angel to ensure maximum relazation while staying at Nirvana. Joan the head house keeper and all the staff always made sure that nothing was to much trouble and Lonnie the owner of Nirvana meant it, when she said ' Don't be afraid to ask for anything' I had cottage Number 4 which, was close enough to the beach to hear the sound of the crystal blue water to rock me to sleep everynight and the distant heartbeat and pulse of Bob Marley just ever so gently sending you to sleep. If you are looking for true Irie Jamaica without the over priced and impersonal Resort money making machine then Nirvana is the place to be. So, Thankyou Lonnie for getting it right.

Cool Runnings.
