Stayed last year October (wouldn't let me select Oct 2015 for review) and I was not at all satisfied. The staff in the restaurant are not at all friendly. To cross over from the garden to the main hotel you have to cross the road which is on a corner so you have to be assisted. It's basically playing Russian... More

Samsara is a low cost option, so it isn't appropriate to compare it to the Riu's and Grand Palladium's of Jamaica. This is a good place to avoid the large crowds, have a vacation of solitude, and get the thrill of jumping from the cliffs. Though it's not on the beach, a free shuttle runs at convenient times to take... More

If you have been to 4 and 5 stars then don't go there !! It was my 5th time to beautiful Jamaica, and resorts were not what we expected. The staff was not as friendly as we are use to. Its quiet, and nothing to do in the evenings but leave the resort. The great thing was the shuttle between... More

If your looking for the Hilton, this is not your place! If you are looking for Quiet and and peace of mind, then you will be at home here. Bring your own Beach towels, and use American cash. Although this hotel is a bit run down, it was still clean, safe and Very friendly.
