Overview

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.

First time wife and I had been able to get a vacation with just ourselves. Great location for a quiet setting. Rooms could have been nice but great price and excellent service.

Birthday Vacation

Would not recommend Wed, Nov 4, 2015
Sigh, I have been dreading this review. Let me start with the good I had an ocean view and it was phenomenal. The view from my room every morning was absolutely beautiful. The views of the ocean around the resort were truly amazing. I booked a package deal which included airfaire for two, the room itself, and transportation to and from the aiport. I was a little disappointed to find that my reservation did not include meals, I must have misread and the price to add the all inclusive deal at the hotel was outrageous almost $500 for two people, so me ane my friend decided to venture out for food. The first night we returned to the hotel to find two large cock roaches in the room. We we were afraid to sleep and there was no one to call as the front desk had gone for the evening. Majority of the staff was not kind, they seem to cater more towards their European guests, there were several occasions where some of the ladies from the front desk gave us dirty looks. On multiple occasions we went to the bar and were not even acknowledged, meanwhile the other patrons were constantly being checked on. Me and my friend booked massages and the ladies were very nice. It was different, but quite relaxing to get a massage out doors in that beautiful weather, I was a little disappointed that I was not able to get a pedicure F.Y.I. The bed I had felt like bricks. I wanted to make the best of my vacation so I did not complain much, however I did see one of the housekeepers the next day and told her about the cock roaches. I would not stay at this property again nor will I recommend it. Most of the negative reviews were spot on, so stay at your own discretion.

I just love Samsara. Located away from the tourist heavy Negril Beach, Samsara offers a nice quiet place to relax right on the cliffs. The food is pretty goo and they also offer daily shuttle service to the beach every day. Stayed here the past 2 years and will visit and stay again.

The hotel is located, right on the cliffs. There are several restaurants within walking distance to the hotel. I would stay again and recommend to others.

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!

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.

Attractions

A short walk to the beautiful Tensing Pen will blow your mind, Majestic spot, very close.
