Take me back to this Paradise Please! I wanted to do something different than the "typical resort" that I frequent. While doing my research I stumbled upon this JEWEL!! I have not 1 bad thing to say about this place. This resort consists of about 6 private bungalows. My husband and I stayed in the "Blue Dolphin". Omg this bungalow was so charming with a view to die for. If you are looking for a Turn-Up time this not the place to come. If you want a place to get your mind body and spirit together (with some fun) this for you. This place is a natural aphrodisiac. It will ignite all your senses with its beauty and food. I have never experienced in all my travel a place like this. The views were absolutely stunning, the food was everything. Authentic Jamaican Cuisine with some American dished thrown in there. Not your typical buffet style. The chef makes 3 meals a day and you wont be disappointed. We did some snorkeling, the hubby cliff dived. We had such a romantic private dinner in one of the caves. (To die for). Every night while at dinner the staff would come in our bungalow and make up the bed and put the net over the bed (cause the mosquitoes will eat you up but hey you are in there habitat. Eat me all day mosquitos just take me back to paradise lol) and turn the AC on so your room can be nice and cool when you get back inside. Don't hesitate just book it. Thank you Caves for the experience of a lifetime. You made my honeymoon fantasies come true!

We visited The Caves for 8 days and never ran out of beautiful experiences right on the resort. I will say this, the Caves team sets the mood from the moment you arrive, and it just puts you in a magical state of peace the entire time you are blessed in their presence. This was not our first trip to Jamaica but first to the Caves , and we will stay here again and not even explore any other resorts on the island, there is no way any place else in Jamaica can compare. If you are the type of person that believes the service makes the experience, I believe you will agree the Caves has the warmest, most generous team of professionals who pridefully take every step to ensure you truly feel like a special part of the family. You can read the reviews and see the pictures of the beauty of the water, food, cliffs and beautifully landscaped property- the pictures don't do it justice. The rooms are rustic, but spotless and have everything you want. We stayed in Sundancer and Margaret is as good as it gets taking care of this property . Every beautiful staff member here is a perfect fit and very gifted in somehow having a laid back personality to help you feel relaxed but extremely fast and efficient service- they are truly gifted. We both work in service in the NYC market and truly appreciated being able to unwind and not lift a finger for the week - thank you to all of you! If you want a get-a-way from the big crowds and uptight resorts, come to the Caves! Much respect ❤

My husband and I returned to The Caves for our 3rd visit and love it so much we brought friends this time. We stayed in the Clandestino Villa with two other couples - what a gorgeous place! The villa is huge with lots of space to spread out and lovely common areas to come together and relax as a group. We loved having the private pool and the secluded outdoor space. Leon took excellent care of us! The mosquitos were pretty bad, but the property was fogged on our second day, which helped some. The mosquitos are the trade-off for having a beautiful open-air villa, so definitely plan on bug spray. We spent most of the day and had most meals at the main property - the food is fantastic. My husband and I were impressed that staff remembered us from previous visits and welcomed us back as old friends. Paul took our group on a fantastic snorkel, and we enjoyed mixology with Brian and a cooking lesson with the chef. Our only complaint was that several guests were smoking ganja in the public areas, which bothered us as non-smokers. We did make the staff aware that the smoke was bothersome and they must have addressed it, as it subsided considerably after we made this complaint - for which we were very grateful! In our three stays at The Caves, this was the only time this was a problem. We definitely plan to return in the future and would stay on the main property or in the villa again if we come with a group.

I really cannot add much that has not been written already. This place is unique and that is the best part. It is an experience like no other. It is not your big box resort, so if that is what you want, then move along. Like others have mentioned, the rooms are rustic (cabin-like). The rooms and ground are kept meticulously clean. But keep in mind, you are in a tropical setting, so you may get an occasional bug or lizard in your room. If this will give you grief, this is not the place for you. Our room was set back in a quiet corner. After about 9, you really felt like you were the only people there. It was so quiet and peaceful. We slept like babies. The food was fantastic. We were never hungry between meals, but they do have snacks for you to help yourself to if you need something in between. I have found a new love - plantain chips. Definitely try all the soups. The staff is amazing and they all felt like family by the time we left. This is the type of place where you feel like you are visiting friends or family. If the staff isn't available in the bar, just help yourself. There are lots of steps and getting in and out of the ocean does take some physical strength and agility. We brought our own blow up chair rafts and actually were glad we had them. The atmosphere is chill and laid back, so don't go here looking for action. But if lounging, relaxation, and making new friends is your thing, you will love it just as much as we did. I do wish I had booked an ocean view room and at least 5 nights. But now I know for next time. We will be returning to The Caves in the future. One Love

The Caves level of service is what others should aspire to when trying to deliver a true five-star experience. From the moment you arrive until the very last second, you will be pampered in a way that we have never found anywhere else on the planet. This was our 5-year anniversary and second stay at The Caves since our honeymoon. The staff is simply amazing and deliver a level of service that makes you feel as if you are the only guest there. You can’t help to fall in love with each of them. The food comes in a very close second to the people and every meal is prepared with the same love and special Jamaican seasoning that seems to make everything taste, smell, and look amazing. We ate every meal here and there is no reason to go anywhere else. And then there is the place itself. It is magical in every way. You often feel that you are the only guest and there are endless opportunities for exploration on the grounds and beyond. We will miss it everyday until we find our way back.

This was our 5th time to Jamaica but first time to Negril. Found it online and it sounded unique and personal. It was just that with beautiful views, warm personable staff and fun opportunities chased with delicious food and good drinks. The County Boy made by Bryan and snorkeling with Paul were my 2 fav things

1. Rooms are great and spacious. Go for the upstairs ocean views for a private sunset. 2. Food was amazing. Get the salt fish at breakfast,. 3. Solitude was fantastic. It feels like you are the only one there. 4. Drinks were made to perfection. Rum Rum Rum Rum Rum 5. You need this. Just book it. 6. I'm going back in a few weeks.

I loved the staff and the lay out of the hotel. We were greeted with a drink and a tour around the property. It was a very unique room, not the traditional "Americanized standard" I really felt the island vibe from the decor to the built of the rooms and the food was also delicious.

I have visited The Caves 4 times, and cant wait to go back again! I was so lucky to find this gem! Everything is taken care of, staff is super friendly, food is wonderful and rooms are beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable. If you're looking for a place to totally relax and be taken care of in Jamaica, this is it! Louise-USA

I hope to return with my family one day. The caves is like a world of its own beautiful comfortable and enjoyable. Cliff diving crystal clear water amazing food and hidden grottos in the cliffs to enjoy a meal or just gazing out to sea. Simply magical
