My husband and I have just returned from a long weekend at The Caves and we are still marveling at the experience. In the past 3 years, we have been blessed to visit Italy, Paris, England, Barbados, China, Spain, Portugal, and while we LOVED many of the experiences and the hotels, NONE come close to The Caves. We thought that...

Highly, highly recommend this property for a unique experience. Spent 3 nights with spouse and newly wed daughter and son-in-law. This was our first trip to Negril. The property is rustic but very will kept. Rooms and common areas kept spotless. Situated along 2 acres of fossil cliffs (approx. 30 ft up) designed to provide spectacular ocean & sunset views...

We have been to Jamaica many times in the past, but this was our first trip to the Caves Resort in the Negril area. We certainly enjoyed our stay and would go back in the future. Figured I better get that out of the way first, as this will be longer they even I like (but good stuff). This is...

I love tripadvisor because it's real people, with real experiences so you know what to really expect! Expect this: The Caves was truly the best home away from home you can imagine. It's on the beautiful cliffs of Negril and it seems that it's the most exclusive place you could be. I told my husband this would be the perfect...

A resort with a difference. Fantastic cottages spread throughout the resort, high on the cliff side with dramatic views. Swim off the cliff into the crystal clear waters. Close enough to enjoy the delights of Negril but not too close to hear any noise disturbance. At night you must book an "In Cave dining experience" very romantic and a once...

My wife and I were married at The Caves on May 1, 2010. We essentially had the entire resort booked for our group. This, in and of itself, made it a truly remarkable experience since I had never traveled to such a tremendous place (or anywhere else for that matter) with my closest friends and family.

The Caves provided us the perfect honeymoon. It's location is nothing short of breathtaking. We loved our room, The Stardust and in 5 nights only left the resort one day, but we were never bored. Additionally the caves dining cannot be topped. We jumped off 30 foot cliffs, drank excellent dirty bananas and piña coladas, and saw lion fish.

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
