This is one of those one-of-a-kind bucket list high end travel experiences. The beauty of the location is already a given, but what was really amazing is the relaxing energy that completely overtakes you. It's like we entered a new dimension where everything was great, life is perfect, and nothing can possibly be a bother. Not even a bout of...

The Caves offers something for everyone. If you want to lounge by the pool or a cliff overlooking the ocean, this is the place for you. If you prefer something more adventurous, The Caves doesn't disappoint. During our visit in early December, we snorkeled every day along the cliffs and in the caves. We also took a scenic kayak tour...

The Caves is the best hotel I have ever stayed in in my life. The staff is warm, courteous, sweet, helpful, and fun. I have never been treated so well at anywhere I have stayed before! The food is amazing, the people who stayed at the hotel while we were there were friendly and relaxed. This is the most beautiful,...

We've been to The Caves three times and it just keeps on getting better! This time we brought our friends and they've grown to love it as much as we do! Do the jumps, always order the combo and just relax and soak it all in! The staff is just wonderful and will always help you out. We usually arrange...

So I have travelled to some incredible tropical hotels in my lifetime but the Caves is at the top of my "FAVS" list along with Jade Mountain in St Lucia and Rayavadee in Thailand. What made the Caves special? Well #1 You really do feel like family and like you are at home! There is something about being able to...

Truly the most relaxing vacation ever. Thank you Ruth Demuth at TripGuy Travel for all of your help! It’s impossible to really describe the peace you feel while being at The Caves. In the past, I have always been the type of person “ready to do an activity” and “get out of the resort”. Not true at The Caves. It’s...

I cannot say enough good things about The Caves. We stayed in the Butterfly room for our Honeymoon which was absolutely charming with an amazing view of the ocean. We were right next to the kitchen and the aromas everyday made us salivate before dinner! The staff is so friendly and wonderful - they really made our trip memorable. The...

Staying at The Caves is like getting to live in a painting. It is far more beautiful a property than what you see in the pictures. Every inch of this location is treated with love and respect. You will not want for anything at The Caves, as they do everything in their power to make sure that you and your...

Many have tried to copy The Caves. All have failed. The location, rooms and staff make it a dream. All inclusive was invented here. I was drinking only Red Stripe on the first and second day. The second evening when I got back to my room my, fridge was filled with nothing but Red Stripe and 2 waters. The rooms...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Caves sits along the limestone cliffs of the West End of Negril, right next to the famous Negril Lighthouse in Jamaica. Although situated only a few miles away from the bustling town center, this private enclave is a world apart. Eleven handcrafted wood and stone thatched-roof cottages, plus a 4-bedroom fully self-contained luxury villa, are interwoven between ten acres of lush vegetation and naturally formed volcanic caves. Quaint stone pathways wind through the limestone cliffs dotted with palm, sea grape and dogwood trees overlooking the Caribbean Sea. An arrangement of coral stairs and walkways lead to sundecks with uninterrupted views of the sea and sky, and grottos with turquoise water pools and fossilized marine life. A tropical reef system comes right up to the edge of the cliff, perfect for snorkeling. Guests can climb down ladders into the sea or take a leap from several “jump points,” the highest of which is 30 feet! An intimate, private and unique resort, The Caves is perfect for romance and relaxation.The Caves generally does not accept children under 16 years old. Exceptions must be cleared with the hotel management. ... more   less
