Beautiful location, 3 pools with lounges, tables and chairs and umbrellas, cliffs to jump from and great snorkeling. You might even spot dolphins in the morning! Don't expect any room amenities, they provide bars of soap, but no shampoo, conditioner, lotion, hair dryer, or mini fridge/coffee maker. Bring beach towels or expect to pay $15 for one. Small but delicious menu to choose from at on-site restaurant. Breakfast, lunch and dinner served. Small Jamaican Band plays on Friday and Saturday nights until about 10 pm. Quiet after that. No late night noise. Small store but all souvenirs, they are much more expensive at the store than in Negril. Supermarkets nearby to stock up on what you didn't bring, snacks and drinks. Small bus tours available to area attractions. Taxis to shops and area restaurants. Staff is excellent. Tina, Rayon, Abigail and Marcia and the other staff members are all friendly and attentive. They remember your name. Quiet resort with lots of private spaces. Our room was number 114 - great location. Just a few feet from pools, cliffs and bar/restaurant. Get familiar with the money exchange before you go so there are no surprises. Masks are worn when off site, and hand sanitizer is sprayed onto your hands wherever you go. The roads are awful, lots of holes and bumps, very narrow, and goats, dogs, cats and the occasional local walked in front of us while driving (on the left side). Stop at Rick's Cafe to jump off the cliffs and have delicious rum cake! All in all, we loved this vacation.

Room tip: It is very casual and hot so don't pack a lot. We wore a bathing suits most days and a coverup for the bar / restaurant. Not fancy.

Thank you for your comprehensive review of your recent stay with us! It's wonderful that you enjoyed so much of what we offer at Samsara while embracing the simplicity of our resort where relaxation is key. The staff will be so happy to hear your compliments about their friendly and attentive service, and the kitchen will also be glad you appreciated their home cooked meals. Most importantly it's great to know you loved your room near the pool, and our spectacular oceanfront location where you can jump, snorkel, and find your own private spot to chill on the spacious sea front sundeck, the largest in Negril. Thanks again for your positive feedback and helpful tips. Hope to see you again one day soon!

We had a very enjoyable stay at Samsara hotel. Great access via cliffs to the sea. Food was tasty. Omelette for breakfast was my favourite. The shuttle bus to Legends sister resort is definitely worth using -- you can spend the day there on Seven Mile beach. Typical post card beach. All staff friendly. If we had any issues, they were dealt with on the day by the team. Would recommend.

My husband and I visited Samsara for our honeymoon and couldn’t recommend this place enough. Jennifer, kenrick & Tina were amazing and everyone went above and beyond for us! It was the perfect stay. We even had a personalised vegan birthday dinner created for my husbands birthday. If you are ever planning on visiting Negril definitely check out Samsara, you won’t regret it! My husband and I will definitely be back!

My boyfriend and I stayed 2 weeks at Samsara from September 27th-October 11th and it exceeding our expectations! There is nothing like waking up and having a morning coffee on the cliff, and an evening glass of wine with an unbeatable sunset view. Truly the most beautiful sunsets we have ever seen.

You have the choice of swimming in one of the two pools on the resort, going for a swim/snorkel on the cliffside, or taking a shuttle with Omar to Legends on the Seven Mile Beach. It is white sand and crystal clear water; very beautiful!

The staff are all amazing and a joy to see every morning; we were always taken care of! Shout out to Jennifer, Marcia, Tina, and Melvin! You guys always put a smile on our faces :) and helped guide us with any questions we had. Not only was it hard to leave this paradise, but hard to leave everyone we met there along the way.

We are DEFINITELY recommending this resort to all of our friends and family, and wouldn't think twice about coming back!

Thank you Samsara for an unforgettable vacation! Stay Irie, Mon!

We stayed at Negril’s Samsara Cliffs from September 18 to October 2. We are not particularly fond of sandy beaches so the choice of the cliffs location was much preferable. We stayed in the older building and our room Oceanview Deluxe was well appointed, comfortable, spacious and equipped in a flat screen tv(accepts USBs), safe deposit box and a fridge. The view was of the pool area and the ocean. The personnel were patient, courteous, and friendly. That's the personal touch.

As to the meals, they are freshly prepared by inventive chefs who can accommodate the needs of people with food intolerances, and even, as in my case celiac disease. I delighted in eating fried fish with rice and vegetables twice a day, for two weeks. And loved it!

Swimming there is amazing, clear warm water with many easy access places, great snorkelling and diving. There are also 2 new swimming pools, including an infinity, a very pleasant one, indeed.

And, yes, as mentioned by some reviewers, do bring an extension cord, as you may find insufficient number of electrical outlets.

Thank you, everyone at Samsara Cliffs, we had a great time!

You are very welcome and thank you for a great 5-Star Review. We’re thrilled you had a great Samsara experience, something we hope you’ll repeat whenever the mood strikes. Those who are especially fond of sandy beaches should check out our sister property, the Legends Beach Hotel. But Samsara is unmatched for fabulous views and amazing sunsets. We’re always happy to hear that a guest appreciated the warm and welcoming atmosphere our staff strives to create along with every clean, comfortable room. Thank you for recognizing too, our kitchen and dining staff, so often the unsung heroes of the vacation experience. We are so glad you chose to stay with us at the Samsara Cliff Hotel and hope to see you again soon. Thank you for a great review.
