The caves is an amazing place. I've never stayed in a place where I felt compelled to write a review, but felt this place should be congratulated on a job well done. Food- simple, clean, delicious. The lobster was the best I've had. Staff- always friendly, extremely helpful, always smiling. Our favorites were Randall and Leon. Paul is amazing- he...

For those frequent travelers of Negril and more specifically the West End, cliff region, you know the panorama that exists there. The high cliffs, the beautiful sunsets, the azure waters, the beautiful natural landscape. This can be enjoyed from The Caves.. from many of the simpler places along the West End road...or from The Caves competitors. So to give The...

The Caves in Negril is a little taste of paradise. From the gorgeous cliffs, caves, and views to the amazing staff and personal touch, we had an amazing trip and hope to make it back someday. The kitchen staff also made a great effort to accommodate our vegan meal requests and we couldn't have been more pleased. We could request...

We discovered the Caves on concierge.com and confirmed our decision to spend part of our honeymoon there after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. It was everything we'd hoped for.

I didn't think all the reviews could possibly be true. How could a place be this great? After 6 days in December 2011, we are believers. Definitely read through all the reviews as they give lots of great information. I agree that this place is amazing. I will focus on those areas that I had questions on prior to our...

We spent a few nights at the Caves in December and really enjoyed our stay. The property is very small, only about 11 suites, which is one of the main reasons we chose to stay here. We enjoy privacy, great food and wine and excellent service during our trips! The staff are all very friendly and go out of their...

Part of me doesn’t want to give the Caves a positive review. My concern is too many people will find out about this amazing resort and it will be impossible for me to book a room in the future. I have to give the resort its proper respect. If you’re looking for a quiet, romantic, private, unique resort with amazing...

We had a great time at the Caves. service was wonderful and location is spectacular. Had the best massage ever at the spa and returned the next day for one in the water side cave. Unforgettable.

My daughter had originally booked an all-inclusive well known hotel in Negril, but after making a trip prior to the scheduled wedding, she found "The Caves" and opted to pay extra to have the wedding reception there. All guests stayed at the original destination which was very good overall but could not compare to the ultimate dream location of "The...

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
