Still here. Don't want to leave.

As I sit on a lounge chair overlooking the ocean, I can't help but think how, yes, I love my home but I never want to leave this place. I thought I would miss the "beach" or the sand, and yet, I have zero desire to leave this cliff. The staff here is amazing. Omar, took us to a gift shop to purchase a beach towel and souvenirs and take us to Three dives with the most amazing jerk chicken. Samsara is not a "luxury" resort so if you are looking for a place that will follow you around anticipating your needs, go elsewhere. What you get here is help if you need it, answers or ideas if you have questions and service when expected. Most of the staff here is eager to help but not trying to sell you anything. I bought a giant mug when I got here and woke at 7 am every morning to go to the restaurant and have a giant cup of coffee to start my busy day of sitting by the ocean, watching the fish, snorkeling in some of the most beautiful reefs right where I dove off the cliffs and sleeping under a canopy listening to the sounds of the ocean rolling against the cliffs. It has truly been relaxing and welcoming. This "resort" has a very Mediterranean look which adds to the romance of it. TerriAnn, (Rasta) is an absolute delight with the personality that makes you feel she is in charge and make you laugh, truly laugh at the same time. Really. Pamela, who is head of housekeeping makes you feel instantly welcome and has an exuberance that makes you smile. Daily you can see friendly, local spearfishermen, more than happy to show you their catch. If you are that person who wants to be left to your own devices to do or not do, this is the place for you. The beds ARE very firm, but the pillows are soft. The towels ARE older but they absorb water better anyway. I have no complaints except that I have to leave and go be an adult again. BUT, I will be back as soon as possible.

Horrible

My first horrible vacation experience. Roaches, mosquitoes and other insects and mold was in my assigned room which they had me in for four days even with a written complaint and request for room change.

August 1, 2016

I WAS PLACED IN ROOM 5A OF THE GARDEN SECTION. THIS ROOM WAS POORLY MAINTAINED AND NEED MUCH RENOVATION. LETS START WITH THE BATHROOM: I WAS GREETED WITH TWO DEAD ROACHES ON THE SHOWER FLOOR AND A DEAD INSECT ON THE CEILING, FURTHERMORE, WHILE BRUSHING MY TEETH I COULD NOT AVOID BUT TO CONSTANTLY OBSERVED MY SALIVA FLOATING AROUND IN THE CLOGGED SINK, THERE WAS ALSO AN OLD BROKEN WINDOW WHICH WAS UNABLE TO BE CLOSED WHICH CAUSED MOSQUITOES TO ENTER; WHEN IT WAS BED TIME, I REMOVED THE BED SHEETS AND OBSERVED LONG BLOND HAIRS ON THE BED; WITHOUT A CHOICE, I HAD TO SLEEP COVERED UP IN AVOIDANCE OF THE MOSQUITOES THAT WERE HOVERING AROUND IN THE ROOM. I WOKE UP TO SEVERAL MOSQUITO BITES AND THE ANNOYING SOUNDS OF MOSQUITOES IN MY EAR. THE CLOSET WAS FILLED WITH COBWEBS AND I HAD THE WINGS OF INSECTS FALLING ONTO MY HEAD FROM THE CEILING AND THERE WERE HOLES IN THE WALLS AND WHAT APPEARED TO BE MOLD ON THE SHOWER WALL. AFTER THE FIRST DAY OF RAIN, WATER WAS ALSO OBSERVED INSIDE THE ROOM. AFTER MAKING A COMPLAINT AND REQUEST FOR A ROOM CHANGE, I WAS ABLE TO BE TRANSFERRED TO ANOTHER ROOM ON THE 4TH DAY OF ARRIVING. THIS STORY MAY SEEM UNTRUE AND BITTER, HOWEVER, IT'S 100% FACTS. NO ONE SHOULD HAVE BEEN PLACED IN THAT ROOM AND THE STAFF KNOWS IT. THAT ROOM NEEDS IMMEDIATE RENOVATIONS. I HAVE REQUESTED A FOUR DAY VOUCHER FOR THE TIME SPEND IN THAT ROOM AND IS STILL WAITING A RESPONSE FROM THE RESORT MANAGEMENT.

The cliffs

When we arreived it was sooo late that we couldnt see our hand in front of our face so was kinda worried about where we were...but in morning we woke up to a beautiful resort so try to get early flight esp. since ride is an hour and a half from airport.....this was not the beach but it is called the cliffs because it is situated on cliffs and u can jump in the water (i recommend u step down).....also the resort food was good but we wanted to experience the local food so we ate at Pablos across street and it was so good we went everyday (looks like a shack but best food).. also Ciao Italian rest.directly across street we didnt get a chance to go but heard the pizza was great.....also didnt get to Ricks Cafe but looking forward to going next time...this resort is small and private not big resort with lot of people just the way i like it...not for children unless u plan activities off resort daily.....the transport guy Omo was awesome taking us around and other resort workers were so respectful. The beds were a little hard for me and room just fair but manageable. I cant wait to return and do what we missed out on the first time.

What's to Love

We love the incredible setting that is Samsara Cliff Resort in Jamaica. Soaking in a pool atop the beautiful cliffs makes this resort unique.

 

What We'd Change

Getting to the ocean requires going down a series of ladders and steps, but the beautiful setting makes it worth the effort. Or, you could jump off the cliff.

 

Why You Should Go

Want a unique Jamaican experience, PADI-certified diving, home-style cooking and cliff jumping. This resort has this and more for a great Caribbean vacation.

Hotel Description

Samsara Cliff Resort: Take Spa Vacations to New Heights

If life has you about to go over the edge, then book a Jamaican vacation and head to Samsara Cliff Resort & Spa in Negril.

Taking advantage of the incredible views, the pool sits on top of the resort property, where you might find it hard to choose between closing your eyes and floating lazily, or laying back and watching the clouds skitter across the bright skies. For a different kind of kicking back, claim your spot on one of the sun-splashed decks carved from the cliffs and offering a perfect place to bask in the sun. Later, watch the sun slowly sink into the calm waters while sitting in the rooftop Jacuzzi and sipping a refreshing cocktail.

If you're more of a beach bum, head down to the white-sand beach via a series of steps and ladders that easily take you down to the waves. Or, if you are feeling particularly daring, get down the traditional island way with cliff jumping. The waters below the tall cliffs are deep enough to pose a hazard, and Samara Cliff Resort & Spa has friendly staff who can show you where to take the plunge with this once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Of course you can explore the waters without having to jump off a cliff; the resort features a PADI-certified dive shop. Make arrangements to become scuba certified or just go on a snorkeling tour to goof off with the clownfish.

Finally, after working up an appetite, you'll be glad the buffet at Samsara Restaurant is all you can eat. Once a week the restaurant features Jamaica Night, pairing Jamaican cuisine with live entertainment and groovy reggae music. Because the resort shares privileges with its sister resort, Legends Resort, you get twice the options for activities and meals. Be sure to set aside some time for the Pasta Fiesta on Tuesdays at Legends Restaurant.

This hotel is NOT all-inclusive. Food and drink must be purchased separately.
