Samsara Cliff Resort

Three-, Four-, or Five-Night All-Inclusive Stay at Samsara Cliff Resort in Negril, Jamaica

Give as a Gift

Cliff-Top, Oceanfront Resort Overlooking Caribbean Sea

The jagged cliffs on the west end of Negril, Jamaica, are located only a few miles from the pristine white-sand beaches in the north. When you stay at Samsara Cliff Resort, you can experience both of these landscapes. That's because Samsara—located amid the cliffs overlooking the Caribbean—has a sister property, Legends Beach Resort, which is located on Seven Mile Beach, about five minutes away. Guests of either resort can dine or use the amenities at both resorts as they please as part of the all-inclusive package.

Samsara's standard oceanfront rooms are set directly on the oceanfront. There's a veranda outside each room; step out here and you can take in views of surrounding tropical gardens and the Caribbean Sea. The resort is close to the Negril Cliffs, a prime spot for swimming, snorkeling, and scuba diving.

Samsara's sister property, Legends, bustles with shops, entertainment, and restaurants; a shuttle service ferries visitors between the two resorts twice a day. At both resorts, the all-inclusive plans give you access to buffets of housemade cuisine for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Domestic alcoholic and nonalcoholic drinks are also included between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m. Meanwhile, Negril's downtown entertainment district is just a short walk away from Legends Beach Resort.

Negril, Jamaica: Laid-Back Beach Town with Picturesque Sunsets, Snorkeling, and Cliff Diving

Located on Jamaica’s western coast, Negril is known for its white-sand beaches, dramatic rugged cliffs, and coral reefs lying just offshore in the Caribbean. Its underwater beauty makes the town a popular spot for scuba diving and snorkeling at Negril Marine Park, and anglers have found the sea filled with blue marlin, wahoo, and mahi-mahi. The city has a front-row seat to some of the world’s most beautiful sunsets, and people often climb to the top of waterfront cliffs just to watch. At Rick’s Cafe, which is listed in the book 1,000 Places To See Before You Die, groups congregate every night to watch the sun dip below the horizon; some brave adventurers even leap off the 35-foot cliffs into the water.

Often called "the capital of casual," Negril is best defined by its laid-back vibe, from the slow and steady rhythm of the indigenous reggae music to its unofficial uniform—swimsuits and flip-flops. Running along the town is Seven Mile Beach, a stretch of powdery, white-sand coastline that earned a spot on Frommer’s Best Beaches in the Caribbean list. The town center comprises a shopping mall and a craft market where visitors can pick up locally produced goods.

Farther inland, the mountainous terrain harbors several eco-tourism attractions including hiking, ziplining, and waterfall tours. Take a 60- to 90-minute drive east to reach the cascading YS Falls or Mayfield Falls, where you can wade in 21 natural pools shaded by exotic tropical flowers and ferns. Or stay close to Negril by visiting the Royal Palm Reserve, where 300 acres of swamp forests and wetlands shelter more than 300 types of birds, butterflies, and abandoned Rubik's cubes.

Jumping from the cliffs was the best part! The bartender was very friendly and most staff was helpful, however the driver of the shuttle (which only transports once a day to the beach) frequently overcharged for rides.

Kind, humble and wonderful staff. Very accommodating to guests. Resort would benefit from a few renovations and updates, but the island beauty and nice people make up for a bit of chipped paint, etc. Room was always kept clean and service was attentive of our needs. Would highly recommend if you are looking for a wholesome, intimate resort. This is definitely not a large, corporate type resort.

The location is great, on the cliffs of Negril and you can take the hotel shuttle to their sister property that is on the ocean. All inclusive was great. enjoyed breakfast and lunch mostly.
