The casual oceanfront Samsara Resort rests on Negril's famous cliffs, which rise above coves, lagoons and stunning rock formations. Guests spend lazy days lounging by the pool or on the 400-foot oceanfront sundeck carved into the cliffs. The water below is ideal for swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving. An all-inclusive option includes meals, drinks and an exchange program with sister property, Legends Beach Resort, located five minutes away on Seven Mile Beach. Don't miss the stunning sunset view from the cliffs, followed by a romantic cliff-side dinner.

Rooms

Accommodations at the Samsara Resort include a mix of hotel rooms, cottages and pillar huts. They are decorated with a tropical flair of colorful fabrics, tile flooring and flower petals strewn across beds. Most enjoy sea views and all include patios or balconies overlooking gardens. All are equipped with cable TV. Some have air conditioning, while others are cooled by ceiling fans and sea breezes.

 

Property features

The cliff-side location creates a unique alternative to the typical beach locale. Samsara Resort guests enjoy easy access to the ocean for swimming and snorkeling. Private sundecks with lounges and shade tents are chiseled into the cliffs. The pool and Jacuzzi offer stunning ocean views. Relax by the pool on a "chill-out" bed or indulge in a cliff-side massage. The resort's scuba center offers courses and a variety of dives.

 

Guests choosing the all-inclusive option (all meals and drinks) receive exchange privileges, including dining, at sister property Legends Beach Resort. Legends is just five minutes away on famed Seven Mile Beach. Shuttles between the resorts run regularly.

 

For a dramatic transition from day to night, enjoy a cliff-side cocktail as the sun sets over the water. Evenings are playful and relaxed. Start with a cliff-side dinner of West Indian red pea soup and grilled snapper, followed by a visit to the oceanfront bar. Live entertainers perform two nights per week.

Wonderful time!

Great resort! Room very clean, bed comfortable. New towels and washcloths. No shampoo, conditioner, etc so bring your own. Everything except the restaurant building looked freshly painted, and I assume it is next on the list. Also windows in room are newly replaced.Every staff member we met was very friendly. Everyone very polite. Unsure about negative complaints we read about anything except maybe the food. We didn't go all-inclusive, but we heard many complaints about limited choices, no bacon and just in general an unhappiness about the food. Unless you drink a lot, I wouldn't buy the all-inclusive pkg. Lots of good choices to eat nearby. Pablo's across the street has excellent breakfasts - especially the banana pancakes! And restaurants will pick you up for dinner, if you pay return taxi fare. Be sure and try Ivans. Ciao across street is also very good and very convenient. Overall we enjoyed our trip very much. We were pleasantly surprised at every turn. Very good value for your money!

Loved this resort! It was cheap and the experience was amazing. The cliffs were breathtaking and no kids! The staff was great and helpful and always so friendly. The drink list could be better for all inclusive but I will go back!

Great for the money

My husband and I normally stay at all inclusive resorts but decided to stay as travellers last November. We really enjoyed the local places, like Pablos breakfast house and 3 dives. We would return to the Samsara but probably stay all inclusive, as the cocktail prices were a bit too high. I would not advise guest to eat all meals at Samsara, as I mentioned before, the local spots are great, The cliff jumping was amazing, so was the snorkeling. Both pools were very clean and every night I found myself hanging out in the jacuzzi, which was nice and hot.

Fantastic honeymoon or family getaway

My fiancé and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay from the minute we were greeted at the door to the minute we left. The staff was friendly, reliable, and very accommodating to our needs. Everything was exactly as pictured from the room to the cliff-side view from the pool and Jacuzzi. The room had everything we needed, a nice king-sized bed, a closet, cable tv, a shower (with warm water), clean towels and sheets daily, night stands, chest and drawer set with a mirror, a medicine cabinet with a mirror in the bathroom, soap, a front patio with clean furniture and a nice hammock to relax in. They even offer free-parking. (Wi-Fi is available for a small fee.) The grounds were kept clean and pretty with so many different varieties of plants. The pool, Jacuzzi, and fountain were all clean, well-kempt, and with comfortable temperatures. The cliff-side area was clean and amazing, couples sat by it enjoying the view of the water, and watching the snorkelers swim buy. There is even an accessible and safely located ladder to enter the water if you decide....or you could do what most people did, which was just jump right in!:-) The service at the downstairs bar and upstairs restaurant were great too. The restaurant offered affordable all-you-can eat buffet for meals, or pay as you go. We chose (and saved with) the pay as you go option for breakfast only, as we were never there for lunch or dinner (and always found good and affordable food locally). The hotel is right across from the Cia Italian restaurant, which offers really good food (pizza, pasta, seafood, etc.) Not to mention, Samsara is conveniently located in Negril, so you're really close to the shopping areas and other seaside places. You also have an amazing view of the waterside from the Samsara restaurant and we happened to be seated at the same table each morning, which made our stay even more enjoyable, because it made us feel comfortable, like we were home. From day 1, we were happy with our choice of staying at this hotel, and by our final day, we both agreed that we would DEFINITELY return to this hotel in the future. Thanks Samsara!!....we loved it!!!:-)

Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

Go to "The Jungle" nightclub for a good time, $15 US (or $1500 JA), offers a certain selection of unlimited free drinks (such as Bacardi Vodka, tequila, or rum) from 9 PM-2AM, great music and atmosphere (there is a downstairs area and an unroofed upstairs area)--both sections play a variety of reggae, r&b, hip-hop, and a little calypso music.

Amazing view but...

Breathtaking cliff and sunset view are the best part of this hotel. Internet was down 3 out of 4 days I stayed there. Room was clean, however I did find a couple of bugs in the room and bathroom. Ocean view: I paid for it but they gave me an ocean front view but was obstructed with trees that made it hard to see any ocean. Bed mattress was too firm. Restaurant food was good but pricey.

If only for medical reasons

I could not believe that a hotel would not have air condition for a body unless you pay extra for it. I travel four or five times a year but never ran into this before. $18 a day is the price you have to pay in order to receive comfort in the brutal heat of the day and some nights. If you have a heat related medical condition take some extra bucks. However, this Resort should warn it's potential customers about this condition if only for medical reasons. Plus, towels are not in the rooms when you arrive you have to ask for them. Once I had to ask at the end of a day. The bar is staffed intermittently because the same waiters are used in the restaurant above the bar. Other than that, this is a nice place but the air conditioner situation I didn't care for.
