Reviewed yesterday NEW

Been to Jamaica many times including Negril. Thought we would try the cliff area. Found Samsara $1050 pp in December with access to Legends on 7 mile beach sounded great. The resort does say it is a relaxed place. Its like a roadside motel and literally is just that. There is nothing going on there it is boring for sure....

I booked the resort even though I know it could be difficult with a recent hip replacement. I planned to try and float of the rocks but they didn't have the lower ladders in that I had seen in pictures. Also it mentioned a hot tub that was closed last year. Our jr suite was spacious but that just made...

I've taken multiple trips here at all times of the year and it's always been great! You get what you pay for at this place. Great vibes, beautiful scenery, awesome staff. The restaurant "Ciao" across the street has the best pizza in negril by far, and some excellent pasta as well. I like the new and improved awnings and pool!...

Samsara is a very affordable, quaint hotel. We stayed in the pillar house. It does not have air conditioning, but there are fans. It was a bit too hot for me, but you get to listen to the ocean while falling asleep in an extremely comfortable king sized bed. I paid for the all inclusive rate. The food and drinks...

Ocean view rooms are the best.Try for 2nd floor.Shuttle to and from Legends is a plus. My only complaints are no coffee maker in the room. It was...

This was my fourth time staying at Samsara and it never disappoints. Always very relaxed, great views, good food and awesome staff. The best thing about Samsara and Legends is that you can choose to be on the cliffs or the beach. If you're looking for a down to earth vacation this is the place to be. You get to...

If you are looking for 5 star accommodations this is not the place for you. But, if you want a peak at the real Jamaica in a laid back, unique, and gorgeous atmosphere then this is totally the place for you! Bring your own beach towel and a big cup/bottle for water and you are all set. You can sun...

Although the hotel states itself as a "boutique hotel", it has nothing to do with a boutique style hotel, it resembles to a cheap highway motel. We stayed at a garden cottage, which is not located within the hotel itself, but on the other side of a very busy and dangerous to cross road. The room was old and simple,...

This resort is quite quaint. It is not a five star nor is it a place to expect five star. It's an outdated resort which I think the owners could and should put a little more money into such a beautiful area. This property is not at its full potential. It is an amazing area that is in dire need...
