The Caves in Negril, Jamaica

If you think “all-inclusive Jamaica vacation” and “bespoke experience” are mutually exclusive, welcome to The Caves. Built into honeycomb cliffs that drop off into the Caribbean Sea, a dozen colorful wooden cottages are nestled among 10 acres of lush vegetation, making for a secluded retreat that’s increasingly rare in Negril. Sidle up to a candlelit table carved into a limestone grotto at the Blackwell Rum Bar and dine on gourmet home cooking under the stars – this is beach living at its best.

In traditional Negril fashion, dive off the cliffs into the turquoise water below. Find a warm rock to bask in the sun. Go kayaking along the shore, taking a swim to keep company with colorful tropical fish. Cool off with a Cliffhanger watermelon juice and rum cocktail. Watch for dolphins from a high vantage point as the sun sets. Dine on rock shrimp in coconut sauce in an oceanfront gazebo, followed by a scoop of homemade mango sorbet.

This place was incredible! From the minute we arrived, they made us feel at home (with drinks). Our room was lower ocean view and it was beautiful. On our snorkeling trip, I lost my wedding ring and the guide, Paul, went back and found it in the ocean. The service was incredible every time. I highly recommend asking for James if you need a driver, he was as much tour guide as a driver, with plenty of details on history and architecture of the island. The resort is set up in such a way that, outside of meals, it can feel like you are the only ones there.

Wow. That about sums up our visit at the Caves. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we felt like royalty. The rooms are so unique yet have all the comforts you could ask for. Paul - our amazing lifeguard - gave us a private guided snorkel tour of the Caves like nothing we’ve ever experienced. He is amazing. We also were able to help ourselves to drinks at the rum bar (or any bar for that matter) and the food was 5 star. This is a unique and intimate experience that you won’t get at a large all inclusive. We are already planning our trip back.

My wife and I celebrated a belated honeymoon at the Caves and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. The views are just amazing. The food is fantastic. The service is warm and spot on. We stayed in the Stardust room which provides an amazing view of the water AND the most beautiful sunsets you've ever seen. The weather and water were just perfect. We had never snorkeled before and were guided by Paul, the lifeguard, and it was amazing. He'll show you things you wouldn't see on your own as well as a few hidden places that are awesome! We opted to have dinner in one of the caves. It was very romantic and getting to enjoy the wonderful food to the soothing sounds of the waves greeting the caves is something I will never forget. My wife and I can't wait to go back!

My husband and I recently returned from a 4 night stay at The Caves, and we loved every minute of it! The natural beauty of the island and the exquisite design and decor of the resort make for breathtaking views. We enjoyed swimming and snorkeling in the impossibly clear, turquoise-blue water. Every meal was fresh, hot, and delicious. The couples massage was excellent, and the cave dinner was magical. Paul, Orrin, Zoom, and the rest of the staff went "above and beyond" to make our 20th anniversary trip special. We stayed in the Blue Hole Suite and would definitely stay there again. We are hoping to return to The Caves soon! I highly recommend this resort for anyone looking for a tropical island escape. The Caves offers total luxury in a laid-back, unpretentious way that makes you feel right at home and totally relaxed. It is truly like heaven on earth.

from the spectacular aesthetics to the delicious food and of course the exceptional staff this hotel is perfection. We stayed in the butterfly room for five nights and are at the airport and already dreaming of coming back. The caves is an actual dream and this is coming from a very picky customer. The chef was extremely accommodating with my many dietary needs and the food was the best I've had at any hotel. The jerk chicken breast was fabulous as was the fresh fish, veggies, and fruits. My husband raved about the banana pancakes. The cave private dining, fun nights at the sands bar, spa treatments and quiet tranquil grounds were unforgettable. We left the property just a few times; for a day at the beach as well as dinner elsewhere however the food at the resort was the best- by far. The gym down the block was perfect for allowing this fitness addict a guilt free reason to drink lots of banana daquaries. Paul is amazing if you want to snorkel, kayak or jump (which I chose to do my very last hour of my stay). We loved the entire staff and already miss our new friends. Do not hesitate- book your next special occasion at the caves!!!!
