If you are looking for a 5 star hotel on Seven Mile Beach in Negril, move on. But if you are looking for something a little different, off the beaten path, perhaps a bit more authentic Jamaican, Samsara Cliffs is worth the visit. Staff are friendly and helpful. Crossing guard Peter does his job well! The meals are simple, but...

We have been there 3 times and every time we stay, the staff exceed our expectations. Clean rooms, friendly staff, great snorkeling, cliff jumping, and access to Negril's 7 mile beach at their sister hotel - Legends. Two vacations in one. The cliffs for jumping and snorkeling and the beach for walking, swimming, and music.

We appreciate hearing how much you enjoyed your "Two vacations in one". As a family owned boutique hotel it gives us great pleasure to offer both the amenities of the beach as well as the snorkeling and cliff jumping at Samsara. Thank you for recommending Samsara and its staff! We look forward to seeing you again for your fourth visit!

We must like this place or we would not have returned for the fourth time! I would not suggest renting a car in Jamaica. A cab to Negril from the airport is $100 US but we got great service from "Kingsley's Take Care Tours" for $60 (plus tip). Every time we go Samsara has upgraded things. This time we noticed...

Just wanted to write a quick note to warn other travellers about leaving any cash in your room while you are out. Around $100 was taken out of my husband's wallet which was left in his jeans pocket in the bottom of a backpack. Someone had to rifle through our belongings to even find his wallet and then didn't put...

Thank you for taking the time to write a recommendation of Samsara.

My boyfriend and I visited this resort because my sister recommended Samara as being beautiful for the cliffs. We were disappointed with our 4day stay as there was nothing provided for entertainment purposes throughout our entire stay. We visited the sister resort "Legends" and was also disappointed as the food and entertainment was mediocre and boring! If you are seeking...

We appreciate you making Samsara part of your vacation and are happy to hear that your sister enjoyed it so much that she recommended it to you. We are also glad to know that you appreciated the amazing sunsets and beauty of the ocean, and understand that the peaceful and relax atmosphere of Samsara does not necessarily appeal to those...

This hotel is nice and very quiet, except for the traffic and honking on the road right outside the hotel. I was surprised that the picture on the site of the rooms is very true to what you get. We had room 209 and it was very comfortable and offered a beautiful view of the ocean, grounds and mostly the...

In a time where most Caribbean hotels resemble one another, it was a true breath of fresh air to stay in a place like Samsara Cliff Resorts. If you're like me, and have stayed in the typical all-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean, you'll know that it doesn't matter where these hotels are- they're all the same. You could be in...

Been to Jamaica many times including Negril. Thought we would try the cliff area. Found Samsara $1050 pp in December with access to Legends on 7 mile beach sounded great. The resort does say it is a relaxed place. Its like a roadside motel and literally is just that. There is nothing going on there it is boring for sure....

I booked the resort even though I know it could be difficult with a recent hip replacement. I planned to try and float of the rocks but they didn't have the lower ladders in that I had seen in pictures. Also it mentioned a hot tub that was closed last year.

Thank you for reviewing your stay with us at Samsara and letting us know that you appreciated how friendly and helpful the staff were. Being situated on the cliffs makes for a one of a kind view, but would certainly make it more difficult for you to access the water if you have mobility issues. Thank you for making Samsara...
