This one was tricky. Samsara has a good location on the West End. The grounds offer lush vegetation & amazing views! My upper floor room was decent & basic... no iron & ironing board, no mini fridge. But the Balcony Views more than make up for those minor inconveniences! You can see Snorkelers out for a swim in the early mornings and wave to boats carrying folks up to Rick's. Samsara offers plenty of lounge chairs & cabana beds for ultimate relaxation. Massage services are available too! The Staff was pleasant with a willingness to resolve any issues. Food choices were good. I enjoyed the Breakfast & Dinner Buffet options and fell in Love with the Corn Porridge 💛 The property has a recently remodeled section that I hear is very nice... I upgraded and stayed 1 nite their Oceanview Superior Rm... (again) the room itself is nothing special but, I'm sold on the 2-level outside terrace deck! Its proximity to the pool & bar sold me - can't wait to book this rm for my next "reach"! Special Shout Outs to; Mgr Nester, Jennifer,/Front Desk Karlene/Housekeeping, & Tina/Wait Staff ♡

Samsara is a great hotel located on the cliffs with plenty of rocks to jump off into the ocean! Tina is the best bartender/server around she remembers your name and what you like! Sadly, Wine is not included they charge a lot for a bottle or glass, go across the street to the market to get wine for less than half of hotel price! Omar will take you wherever you need to go and is super helpful! Overall an amazing experience, tons of beach chairs to relax on and a free ride to 7 mile beach, where you can enjoy the included drinks or food and lay in the calm ocean or white sand! Highly recommend!

The property is beautiful and well kept however the rooms could use some upgrades. Our garden view room did not have a refrigerator nor ice bucket which meant we had to walk to the restaurant every time we wanted ice or a cool drink. Simple amenities such as a iron and refrigerator would have been a nice touch. The food at the restaurant was good but very highly priced in USD. When i tried to pay in Jamaican currency i was told they preferred USD, i was even told they were unable to charge my "American" card in Jamaican currency which i KNEW was untrue. $40-50 USD a night just for dinner for 2 is very expensive over the course of a few days which is why we and alot of others resulted in getting boxed food from local restaurants. I was also disappointed in some amenities such as the infinite pool not being open to us during our stay but when visiting the resort a week prior, i saw numerous guest enjoying and utilizing the pool. The views and sunsets from this resort are amazing, i hope the resort pulls that energy inward. One ❤

Very pretty location although I wish I knew the internet service would have been poor 🙄.

I like my view

I had all I needed in this resort. Love the cliff instead of beach. The personnel was helpful. The view is beautiful. The restaurant options were greta and the location very convenient.

Well maintained older resort. Great restaurant in the resort and another across the street.

The front desk people were nice. The bar tender was horrible the wait staff we’re terrible not friendly or nice. The all inclusive options isn’t worth the money. The food was terrible. The property need a little updating. Won’t recommend it to any of my friends.

Basic rooms. Nothing super special about the rooms. However all was clean.

Resort needs renovation- style totally outdated Condition of rooms, bar, restaurant, etc - poor/fair No pool towels provided Rooms were not fully cleaned daily- towels washcloths andrub mats were not refreshed in a timely fashion if at all No shower gel, shampoo or conditioner provided

The resort is right on the cliffs it was very quite and private. The amount of rooms as compared to the space was wonderful.

The resort is right on the cliffs it was so quite and private. The resort has a great ratio for rooms compared to space it was wonderful.

We were a group of four. First impression was wonderful. The front desk was great the grounds were clean, the rooms and buildings could use a little updating but when we vacation we are only in the rooms for a short period. We were pleased with that. The cliffs were beautiful along with the water. Where this place lacks and why we left neutral overall is the the waitstaff is horrible they had bad attitudes and no clue how to keep people happy. The restaurant staff was unorganized and grumpy. The Bar staff sucked. You try to hold any conversation w them and they looked at you like you were not worth their time or energy. If you did get a response from the woman bartender it was usually not friendly... I only ate 2x at the restaurant and bought 3 drinks from the bar because of how they treated us. Much nicer people out and about in the entire town of Negril. The Front desk was Great The security guys were Awesome and friendly, The house keeping ladies were superior and the grounds keepers made us feel like family... no real complaints other than the waitstaff. I have to say i would love to go back to this resort but i will not because of the waitsatff. Really sucks because its an awesome location.

We enjoyed our stay from beginning to end. All you need on-site . Across the street was an excellent restaurant and a convince store for all your other need. The bus driver, Omar was the best!

roaches in room. they didn't even apologize or over anything for the inconvenience. after begging front desk she changed room. save you money and time go elsewhere

Modest but very clean and relaxing hotel near the sea. Samsara is locatedon the cliffs but there are steps to accommodate those who feel more comfortable getting into the water at lower levels. Also, one can hop on the free shuttle that goes from Samsara to the sister hotel Legends that’s situated on the beach. That way one can enjoy the best of both worlds!

Beautiful hotel, everyone is extremely nice. The souvenir shop guy is awesome if you want recommendations. We didn’t get WiFi in our garden room but that’s was okay. I’m glad we didn’t do the all inclusive because drinks were tiny. Totally would stay here again. Recommendations for things to do: SunBaby Glass Bottom for snorkeling, Three dives (two doors down) for food!!!

Thank you for this review, feedback is always appreciated. We are located at the western most point of the island, so we have one of the best possible seats for our fabulous Jamaican sunsets. We regret your internet experience and are working on that, the wireless signal is strongest in public areas and proves sufficient for most of our guests looking to relax and unwind. Thank you for the feedback and thank you for staying with us at the Samsara Cliff Hotel while in the Negril area.

Thank you for this 5-Star review, we’re always happy to hear from happy guests. Our staff strives to make every guest feel welcome with a clean and comfortable room, we’re so very happy to have succeeded in your case. The cliff are fabulous and a great place to hang out, but if others have a sand and surf impulse they can ride our free shuttle to our sister hotel – the Legends Beach Hotel on 7-mile beach, one of the world’s best beaches. We’re very happy you enjoyed your Samsara experience and hope to see you again someday in the future. Thank you for the review and thank you for choosing the Samsara Cliff Hotel.
