This resort is BEAUTIFUL! And the food is absolutely amazing, make sure you do a cave dinner it’s super romantic. Also Paul is a great guy he showed us the bat cave and he will take you on an adventure. Make sure you get a massage there super relaxing 😌

Very nice boutique hotel with an authentic Jamaican feel and only 12 rooms. We loved the fact that it was all inclusive and if there wasn’t anyone available to serve you at the bar then you can help yourself. The only negative was that the food didn’t really live up to the price tag and was a bit basic. We had dinner one night in a cave which was beautifully lit with little candles but there’s was only one waiter who had to constantly run from our cave to the kitchen and back to serve us which meant he wasn’t there a lot of the time and we had our glasses empty a lot of the time. Great fun jumping from the cliffs into the water as well.

This place was incredible! From the minute we arrived, they made us feel at home (with drinks). Our room was lower ocean view and it was beautiful. On our snorkeling trip, I lost my wedding ring and the guide, Paul, went back and found it in the ocean. The service was incredible every time. I highly recommend asking for James if you need a driver, he was as much tour guide as a driver, with plenty of details on history and architecture of the island. The resort is set up in such a way that, outside of meals, it can feel like you are the only ones there.

Wow. That about sums up our visit at the Caves. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we felt like royalty. The rooms are so unique yet have all the comforts you could ask for. Paul - our amazing lifeguard - gave us a private guided snorkel tour of the Caves like nothing we’ve ever experienced. He is amazing. We also were able to help ourselves to drinks at the rum bar (or any bar for that matter) and the food was 5 star. This is a unique and intimate experience that you won’t get at a large all inclusive. We are already planning our trip back.

My wife and I celebrated a belated honeymoon at the Caves and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. The views are just amazing. The food is fantastic. The service is warm and spot on. We stayed in the Stardust room which provides an amazing view of the water AND the most beautiful sunsets you've ever seen. The weather and water were just perfect. We had never snorkeled before and were guided by Paul, the lifeguard, and it was amazing. He'll show you things you wouldn't see on your own as well as a few hidden places that are awesome! We opted to have dinner in one of the caves. It was very romantic and getting to enjoy the wonderful food to the soothing sounds of the waves greeting the caves is something I will never forget. My wife and I can't wait to go back!

My husband and I recently returned from a 4 night stay at The Caves, and we loved every minute of it! The natural beauty of the island and the exquisite design and decor of the resort make for breathtaking views. We enjoyed swimming and snorkeling in the impossibly clear, turquoise-blue water. Every meal was fresh, hot, and delicious. The couples massage was excellent, and the cave dinner was magical. Paul, Orrin, Zoom, and the rest of the staff went "above and beyond" to make our 20th anniversary trip special. We stayed in the Blue Hole Suite and would definitely stay there again. We are hoping to return to The Caves soon! I highly recommend this resort for anyone looking for a tropical island escape. The Caves offers total luxury in a laid-back, unpretentious way that makes you feel right at home and totally relaxed. It is truly like heaven on earth.

from the spectacular aesthetics to the delicious food and of course the exceptional staff this hotel is perfection. We stayed in the butterfly room for five nights and are at the airport and already dreaming of coming back. The caves is an actual dream and this is coming from a very picky customer. The chef was extremely accommodating with my many dietary needs and the food was the best I've had at any hotel. The jerk chicken breast was fabulous as was the fresh fish, veggies, and fruits. My husband raved about the banana pancakes. The cave private dining, fun nights at the sands bar, spa treatments and quiet tranquil grounds were unforgettable. We left the property just a few times; for a day at the beach as well as dinner elsewhere however the food at the resort was the best- by far. The gym down the block was perfect for allowing this fitness addict a guilt free reason to drink lots of banana daquaries. Paul is amazing if you want to snorkel, kayak or jump (which I chose to do my very last hour of my stay). We loved the entire staff and already miss our new friends. Do not hesitate- book your next special occasion at the caves!!!!

This beatuful place has breathtaking views in a quaint setting, with authentic island feel. Was surrounded by a warm friendly staff and clean safe surroundings fulled with total relaxation. Need to be a bit adventurous with the topography. Steep steps to crystal turquoise waters are well worth it.

The Caves is an intimate, quirky, unpretentious gem of a resort that allows its guests to feel completely at home. We stayed for four nights in Blue Dolphin (lower level ocean view) and were charmed from the moment we arrived. The entire staff is warm and welcoming and happy to help you, without ever being overly intrusive. The food was wonderful. Banana pancakes were a favorite. So was the jerk chicken and all seafood dishes we tried. Menu items are limited here but they change daily and none disappointed. The private sunning nooks, gorgeous water (cliff jumping was a rush) and the special cocktail of the day were just what we needed to unwind and decompress. Be aware that catamarans carrying guests from other resorts will occasionally drop anchor close to one of the caves in the late afternoon, but they don't stay long. Get to know Paul and have him take you on a snorkeling tour around the caves. You won't regret it. We also booked a private cave dinner one night. What a memorable experience! A bit pricey, but for us it was worth it. If you're looking for a huge party scene and a cookie cutter resort, this isn't for you. But if you're searching for tranquility, warm hospitality and a resort with a unique and friendly vibe, then welcome home to The Caves.

Romantic, candlelit dining in a cave -- who can pass that up? Apparently, someone with claustrophobia! Before I booked this place for dinner, I had seen several photos of beautiful tables set up right along the water, in a cave with high ceilings. Looked fantastic. When we got there, we were taken into a dark, small, enclosed cave. There was zero airflow and it was really hot. It was still beautiful - candles, the sounds of waves crashing in - but entirely uncomfortable. I had to keep leaving the cave to get air. I would love to do it again in the other cave! I guess there are three. As far as food & service, it was all good! They even had a birthday cake with candles for my husband.
