I have not 1 bad thing to say about this place. This resort consists of about 6 private bungalows. My husband and I stayed in the "Blue Dolphin". Omg this bungalow...

We visited The Caves for 8 days and never ran out of beautiful experiences right on the resort. I will say this, the Caves team sets the mood from the moment you arrive, and it just puts you in a magical state of peace the entire time you are blessed in their presence. This was not our first trip to...

My husband and I returned to The Caves for our 3rd visit and love it so much we brought friends this time. We stayed in the Clandestino Villa with two other couples - what a gorgeous place! The villa is huge with lots of space to spread out and lovely common areas to come together and relax as a group....

I really cannot add much that has not been written already. This place is unique and that is the best part. It is an experience like no other. It is not your big box resort, so if that is what you want, then move along. Like others have mentioned, the rooms are rustic (cabin-like). The rooms and ground are kept...

The Caves level of service is what others should aspire to when trying to deliver a true five-star experience. From the moment you arrive until the very last second, you will be pampered in a way that we have never found anywhere else on the planet. This was our 5-year anniversary and second stay at The Caves since our honeymoon....

This was our 5th time to Jamaica but first time to Negril. Found it online and it sounded unique and personal. It was just that with beautiful views, warm personable staff and fun opportunities chased with delicious food and good drinks. The County Boy made by Bryan and snorkeling with Paul were my 2 fav things

I loved the staff and the lay out of the hotel. We were greeted with a drink and a tour around the property. It was a very unique room, not the traditional "Americanized standard" I really felt the island vibe from the decor to the built of the rooms and the food was also delicious.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Caves sits along the limestone cliffs of the West End of Negril, right next to the famous Negril Lighthouse in Jamaica. Although situated only a few miles away from the bustling town center, this private enclave is a world apart. Eleven handcrafted wood and stone thatched-roof cottages, plus a 4-bedroom fully self-contained luxury villa, are interwoven between ten acres of lush vegetation and naturally formed volcanic caves. Quaint stone pathways wind through the limestone cliffs dotted with palm, sea grape and dogwood trees overlooking the Caribbean Sea. An arrangement of coral stairs and walkways lead to sundecks with uninterrupted views of the sea and sky, and grottos with turquoise water pools and fossilized marine life. A tropical reef system comes right up to the edge of the cliff, perfect for snorkeling. Guests can climb down ladders into the sea or take a leap from several “jump points,” the highest of which is 30 feet! An intimate, private and unique resort, The Caves is perfect for romance and relaxation.The Caves generally does not accept children under 16 years old. Exceptions must be cleared with the hotel management. ... more   less
