Samsara Cliff Hotel

Hugging the shoreline of the Caribbean Sea, Jamaica's Samsara Cliff Hotel is an all-inclusive resort with a blissful boutique hotel feel. The perfect little piece of paradise. Luxury embraces you from the moment you wake—whether that's in your private hammock or in the rustic plushness of your sea-facing suite.

At the seafront resort and spa, unwind with a facial in the waterside cabana or reinvigorate with a body scrub in the comfort of your room. When it's time to dine, tuck into homemade jerk chicken from the buffet lovingly prepared by local chefs, or reserve a private waterfront table with your personal butler and watch the sun dip into the Caribbean Sea.

Samsara is all about local, so get a salt scrub in the sea, take a walk along the clifftops, or stroll down to the harbor for some ship spotting. Mooch through the nearby Negril craft market to pick up authentic wood carvings, local art, and souvenir trinkets.

Whether you stay in a standard or superior room or suite, you'll find the color and comfort of the Caribbean in every room at Samsara Cliff Hotel. Book your stay with Expedia and get incredible rates!

Traveled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service
I like that it was quiet and laid back. I dislike that the lady in the front had to charge me for 7 days even though I told her I could only stay for six and charged me an extra $200 for my daughter. The place was swarming with mosquitoes and we had to eat in our room most of the time to escape them. The all inclusive menu was the same daily that needs to be reviewed with more options.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I loved the property it was so beautiful. We were greeted by friendly Jennifer. Our room was big with a huge patio. We went swimming in two of their pools and jumped off the cliffs. Macia and Tina were the best drink makers and host as well as Henrick. The food was very good we had breakfast, lunch and dinner at the resort everyday. Felt like a home cooked meal everytime. Shout out to Omar for being the best driver and taking an extra stop to get some oxtail. I'm so glad I didn't listen to the negative reviews I seen because our experience was 5 stars

Hotel staff was very pleasant, especially Jennifer. Loved jumping off the cliff. The view is breathtaking. Smaller, more moderate. Very economical to see Jamaica and one of the best sunsets in the world.

Disliked: Amenities
The location is currently being renovated, and had literally just opened back up after covid when we arrived. We stayed on the older side. The rooms left much to be desired. I'm a simple person and will sleep on the floor and be ok. My travel partner not so much at the beds are as soft as the floor. Being a smaller resort, some things you would expect are not on auto. Such as a mini-fridge or microwave in the room. A fridge can be rented, however. The food very much needs an upgrade. If you are on the all-inclusive plan I could not see you eating too many meals on sight and being satisfied. The view and atmosphere on sight and at the sister location "legends" which is about five min away as spectacular. Don't be afraid to jump from the cliffs, we promise the water is deep enough. In the morning you can see plenty of sea life if you do a little snorkeling. The beach and water at legends will make you consider moving there. Negril is a quiet place, when compared to other popular locations on the island. If your looking for a happening club scene or something consider Kingston. Take time to research the activities that you may want to do as many are a ways from this location. Also at no fault of the location, Jamacia is still under curfew so plan ahead. The resort's driver Omar, is very knowledgeable and can't help you find just about anything. Our trip had many frustrations due to our booking agent, but the staff at Samsara truly help alleviate the stresses. If you go ple
