We spent our 25th anniversary at The Caves. This is a unique property that provided a memorable anniversary. The cottages are spacious, decorated to maintain a country atmosphere and well furnished. Those are well maintained and constantly upgraded. The rooms are funky and colorful, unlike any hotel room anywhere. Walking the grounds offers views from constantly changing angles. There are...

My friend earned this trip through Aveda's Pure Privilege Program by saving up 50,000 points for her purchases of Aveda products over the past five years. Although the trip is inspired by romance, we got to enjoy a girl's getaway on Aveda's dime. It was lovely. The staff was so kind and gracious and taught us "city girls" how to...

I spent five nights at The Caves at the suggestion of some friends and my husband and I loved it. The place is a little jewel in Negril, which is increasingly getting more and more commercial, but Chris Blackwell who stated Island Outpost knows exactly how to preseve a true Jamaican atmosphere.; Great food, great swimming in the caves and...

Everything was fabulous! The staff, the food, our room. No need to go to the tourists destinations. We cliff jumped from twenty feet outside of our room, saw dolphins twice, kayaked, jet skied and relaxed with all the red stripe and rum we could drink. All the charm of a boutique resort with the convenience of all inclusive amenities.

We stayed at the Caves for our honeymoon in late 2008 and loved every minute of it. We were met at the airport with an air conditioned van to the resort, then at check in we were greeted with a cocktail and lots of friendly faces. We stayed in Star Dust, before it because widely known. It was perfect, with...

What is The Caves really selling? privacy! What an amazing opportunity - at the "full" point of our weekend we had a whopping 20 guests at the resort. Even when we all chose to be in the pool together to chat, it wasn't full! Most of the time was spent alone on a chaise lounge (only 2 to a cliff)...

First, long story short: If you have the Caves as an idea of your next trip; like others have said-stop researching…book it and GO!!!! Second, if you want a trip filled with excitement, activities, music and fun, multiple excursions off property, things to do and see, and a schedule of this, that, and the other…then choose somewhere else.

My husband and I just returned from an incredible experience at The Caves. I never had interest before in visiting Jamaica, hearing about all the large rowdy resorts. But The Caves is the antithesis. It's 90 min from Montego Bay airport, built along the cliffs. It is so special and beautiful, and mellow - no kids! There were only about...

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
