This was our second time back to The Caves. We are already trying to figure out a way to get back. This is our favorite place anywhere. The fact that it is all inclusive is crazy. The food is so incredibly fresh and amazing. If they had a restaurant in Denver, it would seriously be one of my favorites. The water is so clear and the snorkeling is fantastic. I love being able to just go behind the bar and make whatever I want if no one is present. It is just so open. Like staying at a rich relative's house. Just have whatever you would like. The cliff jumping is a blast. The staff is second to none. Thank you Karen for having such a great group. You and your team are the best! I would rather go here over Hawaii, Mexico, anywhere.... this is our favorite spot. A few disclaimers..... You need to know how to swim You need to be a little bit fit to get out of the water on the ladders You need good balance to go down some of the stairs You need to appreciate the funkiness and be cool with the potential of an outdoor shower You need to realize this is not Sandals, or some other big box resort You need to be a cool person and treat this amazing staff with the love that they deserve😀 We will definitely be back. If you want the most relaxing experience ever, book it. Thank you To the Caves staff, we seriously love you guys!

We didn’t stay at the resort but we dined at the private dining area in the caves. This was an incredible one of a kind dining experience!! The food was excellent, the service was top notice and the ambiance is unbeatable!! The spot is very very romantic perfect for anniversaries or engagements. I can’t recommend this experience enough a must while in Jamaica

My wife and I celebrated our honeymoon at the Caves 5 years ago, so we thought it was time to return for a big anniversary trip! This time we stayed in the Stardust room, which is absolutely stunning and a little more secluded than the rest of the property. Not only is it an extremely relaxing vibe, but the staff treats you incredibly well. I would recommend this place to anyone who is trying to get away and unplug!

Amazing and special, this place was the perfect spot for our honeymoon. On this first trip to Jamaica, we stayed at Couples Swept Away (reviewed this separately) and here at The Caves. While I am sure there are some die-hard CSA fans, we felt more at home at The Caves. It is small and intimate. Very quiet and personable. They do not try to entertain you every minute of your stay - if you are into that I would stay at a big all-inclusive vs this small one. The rooms are great, not too spacious but more than enough room. We stayed at the Blue Dolphin and the bed was very comfortable, a perfect little nook for the two of us. The treats and alcohol in the room was plentiful. Food was amazing. I felt that the chef loved to cook and introduce us to Jamaican cuisine. We ate in a cave one night and had delicious lobster. Better than I have had in Boston! All employees were welcoming and you could tell that they enjoyed working there. It was their place too! Fiona is amazing. I liked talking to her about her life in Jamaica (and she makes some great drinks, as well :). We went snorkeling with Paul twice. I could not get enough. I wish I went a third time, but I figure that I will be back. We saw schools of fish, held a sea urchin and starfish, and swam into the caves. Paul will go out of his way to make you enjoy your experience in the water. The spa was wonderful - we enjoyed a couples massage, a mini facial and coffee scrub. Very unique location. We love it here and will be returning - hopefully next year. I am recommending this place to all my friends - and you too!

I don’t even know where to begin...the pictures don’t do it a bit of justice. It’s the most beautiful place I’ve ever been and I consider myself a very experienced traveler. My thoughts are as followed: I was a little bit nervous because I am a VERY picky eater and it doesn’t have multiple restaurants like some of the other all inclusive restaurants. Prior to arriving at The Caves, we spent three days at Sandals with man restaurants where the choices were plentiful but food mediocre at best. Well, EVERYTHING about the food at the caves was remarkable. My other half runs a restaurant and was overly impressed with every single meal. The staff was the BEST!!! Orene went out of his way to treat us like family and made our stay even better. The cave dining is an absolute must. This place is paradise! We stayed in the Mackatree room and it was perfection. The bed was very comfortable and I was worried about that too. Anything we needed all we had to do was ask. Possibly the most romantic place on planet earth!

My wife and I came in on the tail of a very active hurricane season and took a chance on the Caribbean. Several of our favorite spots were majorly affected by the storm season, but Jamaica seemed to be unscathed! We took a chance on Negril and Jamaica with no experience or recommendations, and we were wonderfully surprised. The Caves is a resort like no other. The natural beauty of the location is breathtaking, and the resort buildings compliment it seamlessly. Individual suites are quiet and comfortable and generously stocked with all the creature comforts arranged in a bohemian chic-ness that presents relaxation as the goal. The food is expertly prepared, with local dishes alongside international cuisine. The staff will greet you with a smile and make sure that everything you could want is at your disposal. Must do’s: - couple’s private sunset jacuzzi - relaxation massage - cave dining experience - private snorkeling trip on property with Paul, the activities director - cliff diving and jumping with Paul We will be back!

This was our first visit to Jamaica and we spent the first four nights at a large all-inclusive in Montego Bay and the last at The Caves. We loved The Caves! We are a couple, ages 49 and 50, and we felt very comfortable and cared for. The property is lovely, quiet and intimate, but the staff make this place what it is. We did not catch everyone’s name, but a few mentions: Malesia (sp?) who served our breakfasts and lunches was so kind and friendly (we got warm hugs from her at our last breakfast), Jamoy (sp?), Vernon, and Oron (sp?) were friendly and helpful with delicious drinks or anything else we needed, and of course Paul who literally held my hand on our snorkeling tour because I was a bit scared. That snorkeling tour was the highlight of the trip for me and I could not have done it without Paul’s gentle but capable guidance. Last but not least, the food at The Caves is delicious and fresh. I enjoyed the fresh, local options, especially the soups! I highly recommend The Caves. We will be back!

The staff and service was wonderful. Best spa treatment I have ever had...see Liz & Michelle! Fiona and Orane never missed a bit with food and beverages. The food was delicious! Paul not only shows you how to jump/dive from cliffs, but takes you by the hand on amazing snorkeling adventures. With only 24 guest accommodations, you are sure to feel the privacy one would have from a private villa, yet you can certainly make a few friends as well. The cottages are very comfortable and clean.

The best place I've ever been to in my life they celebrated my birthday by leaving me a pink cake as requested in our room bottle of champagne we had dinner in the caves our room was magnificent the staff was awesome Paul was amazing all the ladies were just gracious and kind we're definitely going back there The food was fantastic the drinks were amazing I have nothing bad to say about the caves

We stayed for 5 nights at The Caves, and it was incredible. The location is absolutely gorgeous, the staff is lovely, the food is fresh and delicious, and we didn't want to leave! Our room was right on the ocean, and we woke to a beautiful sunrise every day, and watched the light fade as we went to bed at night, all to the sound of the waves. The whole resort is decorated with art, both hand-carved designs in the wood and paintings throughout the property. The way the site is laid out feels like you are on your own private vacation, and then you also see other guests at meals which is nice. The food was super fresh and beautifully presented. The fruit plate every morning was beyond words, and it was great to have the option for traditional Jamaican breakfast as well as banana pancakes! For dinner, make sure to get the soups! Now that we are home, we really miss the amazing meals we had there. There is no beach, but there is a gorgeous swimming area right at the bottom of the cliffs. You can go snorkeling or just grab a foam noodle and float to your heart's content. And there are a number of cozy cliff side areas with two loungers right on the water. Everyone who works there was so friendly, welcoming and genuine. They really made our vacation special. We can't wait to go back!
