Pure relaxationPosted Jan 26, 2015
Absolutely stunning view. Perfectly eclectic cottages with outdoor showers, self serve bar in a cave, pristine water, friendly staff, and wonderful food.The only negative would be that the drink mixed were not at the standard one would expect for the price. Server was great, but for the price point, one expects real orange juice, fruit purees, etc. in drinks. Food was great, but few menu options. Still, immensely enjoyed and would recommend

Unexpected.Posted Dec 24, 2014
Pros: The genuine sincerity and generosity of the hotel staff. Adults only with few guests.
Cons: up to the hotel and blast loud music. The Caves should come to an agreement with other business managers to bring down the noise level.
Location: We never left the hotel.
We have travelled to luxury resorts all around the world, and the Caves was among the most surprising. Very unassuming, discrete comfort and rustic chic. It was difficult to imagine what to expect with the few available pictures on the Web (and almost all taken from the same angle) and we were half expecting a somewhat "tired" hotel. On the contrary. It is like the Caves has stopped in time sometime in the 1980's which gives it all its casual charm and tranquillity. The food is outstanding as all the ingredients are local. The best bananas we've had anywhere in the world. Delicious local fish. And a good variety of local and international cuisine. One set 5 course menu at each meal, but with 5 courses, anyone can easily be satisfied. Every meal offered vegetable soup (yes, soup at lunch in the tropics), but every vegetable soup was different and delicious. The lunch and dinner chefs have excellent imagination.

Excellent place to stay and relaxPosted Dec 10, 2014
Stayed here for 5 days the beginning of December 2014 and there isn't a thing we would have changed. The food is UNBELIEVALBE as is the service. The staff goes out of their way to be sure you are happy. Incredible views and very relaxing with a small atmosphere. We loved our stay and plan on returning next year.

Simply PerfectPosted Jun 19, 2014 on Hotels.com
The only reason anyone would give this place a less than stellar review is because they don't want others to book here an it get busier. The location is stunning on the cliffs, Everyone here is so accommodating and genuine, and the food / drinks are by far surpasses what you'd get from those populated resorts on the beach up the road feeling authentic and fresh! You get personalized service and they genuinely want you to enjoy. It's also so mellow and sitting doing nothing for days is completely doable and enjoyable. You can use this hotel as a jumping point for excursions if you want. Highly recommended but leave some for those of us who want to come back every year! ;-)

AMAZING!!!Posted Mar 20, 2014
I truly cannot begin to say enough good things about The Caves! This resort was hands down the most amazing and gorgeous place either of us has ever been. From the views (breathtaking), to the food (so delicious!), to the drinks, to the service (outstanding), to the uniqueness of the rooms.. every ounce of our trip was top notch! We have told SO many friends about the incredible time and definitely plan on returning in the near future. It would be hard, possibly impossible, to top this amazing vacation! The dinner in the candlelit cave is defintely worth the extra money and you must go snorkeling with Paul.. such a cool experience! A special thank you to sweet Fiona for making our breakfasts every morning so enjoyable and also to Randall, Paul, Aron, Javier, and Glenn for making our entire stay so special! We had an absolutely fabulous time!

The Caves is truly the best!Posted Mar 20, 2014 on Hotels.com
We loved our stay at The Caves and its fabulous location in the West End of Negril. We could venture out easily if we wanted to explore different bars, restaurants, etc., but rarely did due to the beautiful scenery and setting of this cliffside hotel. Snorkeling and kayaking around the reefs and caves was fantastic and we loved starting our day with jumps off the cliff into the sparkling turquoise water. Our nights usually ended with drinks in the Rum Bar inside a cave - incredibly unique! The food was outstanding and the staff were all so friendly and helpful. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Jamaica, as The Caves was truly a jewel!
