Historical Traveller Reviews of The Caves Hotel

Better than ever

from A TripAdvisor Member
My wife and I just returned from our second visit in as many years. We can't say enough about this property: the staff, the food, the rooms, the vibe, the other guests - everything was phenomenal. The only downside is that The Caves has set the bar so high that I can't see enjoying a vacation elsewhere nearly as much.

s wedding

from A TripAdvisor Member
My daughter and future son-in-law wanted a wedding celebration that was different from the norm. She went on the Internet and discovered The Caves. After a few phone calls directly to the office, she had a plan.
We took over The Caves for 2 days and everything was absolutely perfect. Everything from the food and drinks to the music, ceremony and the entire staff. We couldn't have asked for more. We felt fortunate to have this wonderful opportunity in February of 2002. I would highly recommend The Caves for a wedding or any occasion. It's a dream come true.

Just returned from the Caves

I came close to giving the Caves 4/5 but I just couldn't do it. I can only imagine what this place looked like prior to Ivan. My wife and I were the first to arrive when they opened November 27. Most of the plant life was destroyed and now is has been replaced. Within a year I would bet the landscaping will be filled in by then.

There are a few things to consider when going to the Caves. Do you want a beach or not? Not having a beach did not bother me. My wife and a few other couples missed having a beach. The pool is very small. There are certain locations around the caves that are more desireable to lay out making them more competitive to get. Some of the guests and my wife became somewhat tired of eating jamaica food at every meal. I thought the food was good and this did not bother me.

Having said all the possible drawbacks the reason I did give it 5/5 was the service and staff. It was so relaxing and laid back. The staff new all the visitors names by the first drink.

The Caves will need a few more weeks to get all the kinks out but I must admit they have worked VERY hard to get it were it is today.

Fully recovered from Ivan, the Caves is Back!

We just spent a wonderful 4 days at the Caves in late November, just after its reopening from damage sufferred from Hurricane Ivan. The place is back up and better than ever! The food and service are the best and we can't wait to get back!

Incredible Property, Incredible People

from A TripAdvisor Member
The Caves provided an incredible Honeymoon experience for me and my wife. Everything in the other reviews is accurate: the property is beautiful, the food is wonderful and the staff are the best of anywhere I have ever stayed (and I travel extensively for work). What is difficult to convey is the "vibe" of this remarkable resort-mellow, musical, delightfully relaxed and yet with an absolutely five-star sense of service. The staff in particular is a delight. They bent over backward to provide us with a wonderful experience. This is a place you really wish you could keep a secret, but it would not be fair...

t Imagine Anything Better

from A TripAdvisor Member
I just returned from a one week stay at The Caves with my husband and it was absolutely perfect. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel completely comfortable there. Upon arrival, we were given welcome drinks while we filled out the necessary paper work and then we were ushered out to the patio to enjoy a fabulous lunch (pretty much every meal we had there was fabulous, especiallly the lobster!). After lunch we were given a tour of the property, which was absolutely beautiful. From then on the staff called us by name and got us whatever we wanted or needed. I've never felt so special while staying at a resort. Our room was gorgeous. There is no AC, but don't worry, even in June we were confortable in our rooms with the fans. As previous reviewers have said, you probably should only come here with someone very special to you. This place is definitely for couples. The place just oozes romance, from the candle lit dinners under the stars to the breathtaking sunsets. The activities at The Caves incuded snorkeling, which there was lots of great things to see. Daily there were a couple of glass bottom boat rides that came by the area so that shows you it's one of the better areas for snorkeling. Be sure to snorkle inside the caves, there's literally thousands of small fish to see. As for other activites, there's the spa where we got a wonderful couples massage, also there's kayaking, swimming and just relaxing. If you like there are several off-site excursions, I recommend the Mayfield Falls. It's an adventure just getting to them! Overall, I have to say this is the best trip we've ever taken and definitely plan to go back in the future. There is no doubt in my mind that this all-inclusive resort is a thousand times better than the others.

Simply the best

from nmeoct
Well it has been a while since i have been there but had to say this trip wich was my honeymoon was the best in the world. The hotel is the best in every way. VERY QUIET ROMANTIC, AWSOME FOOD, CLEAN UNIQUE!! We stayed in the butterfly room and it was said to be the best room in the house. The STaff was VERY nice. And when my husband and i wanted to venture out at night the hotel manager (i beleieve , the guy with aswome air) he took us ourselves. Should of just stayed at the hotel. I can wait to get back. Love that green salad dressing too!!
CAVES is the best BUT since we have been it seems like so many more people know about it so i was glad we got to go before it was this well known.
Request when you make your reservations to have dinner in the cave. We didnt know about it and it was booked. Also resverve the hot tub too.

Simply the best!!!!

This place was SIMPLY THE BEST!!!!!! I had searched the internet, talked to friends, met with travel agencies, and just about pulled my hair out trying to find the perfect place for my wife and I to visit for our 10th anniversary.

First, I want to thank this website and all of the people for submitting their reviews. Without this particular outlet, I would have never found paradise. O.K....enough of the ego, back to the reason I am posting this review.

The Caves.........I really can't describe what a wonderful time and such a religious feeling this place can bring to a couple. My wife and I want to personally thank Pierre, Norwin, Glenn(what a wonderful dinner in the cave), Lornette, and really everyone that has the pleasure to work at this fabulous resort. You guys really made us feel as if we were the only couple around(appox 12-16 people staying at the time) and I want to thank you for that.

We stayed at The Caves May 23-28 and I agree with other reviews on the comment that there isn't that much to do here. YEAH!!!! Just what we were looking for. If you enjoy eating the BEST food in the world, drinking as many drinks as you want(and fabulous ones at that), laying out in the sun, snorkeling, kyaking, swimming, napping, making love, and just reconnecting with your soul mate....this is definitely your place to visit.

For those looking for some activity, you can go to the markets(Kari and Mark from Colorado, thanks for the day trip and for the book), Rick's world famous bar is just 1/2 mile down the road, and other attractions are nearby.

We stayed in the Butterfly and we really loved our private cabana. Yes, it is open air and there were no a/c's, but you really didn't notice even in the month of May. There was a great breeze in the evenings and fans were provided. The water was absolutely beautiful and not very rough at all as an earlier posting stated, must have been that time of year.

Well, I could go on forever talking about The Caves. But, words really can't describe what a wonderful place and what an incredible anniversary my wife and I experienced. Thank You guys for everything, we will be back!!!!

And to Norwin and Dominique....Cheers Mon!!!!

Just returned from 10 days at The Caves. It was the best vacation of my life and I've taken a few, to say the least. I agree with other reviews that this place is not for everyone. My husband and I are strong swimmers and we loved jumping off all the cliffs, but if you're not a water person, then your water options are limited. The pool is more of a soaking pool. The staff are the kindest, most loving, giving people and they wait on you hand and foot. The food was a religious experience, Ms. Joy and her staff are truly gifted. There is "art" everywhere on the property. The attention to detail and sensual experience is limitless. Greer-Ann and Bertram are super funky, cool, people and you do end up feeling like you stayed at a friends island retreat. I absolutely loved everything about the place. If you are a funky, fun, arty, romantic, sensual, person or couple...this is your paradise. Have fun.

My husband and I just came home from a week at The Caves,we went there for our 25th wedding anniversary.We can not say enough good about the place,we had the best vacation ever. The staff couldn't have been better,they really make sure you are having a good time and they were all very friendly. The rooms are great,the food was great,and the view from everywhere there was wonderful. If anyone wants the ocean and romance this is the place to go.As I said before we can't say enough just how wonderful it was.

Top Local Tips for Negril

Arriving and departing remember, this isnt America, the Laws are different, and many young idiots take advantage of the open society. We didnt see any problems until we left the resort. My advice, Take your Bride check in, and ENJOY EACH OTHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!! No need to leave the Caves.

Things to do sit back and chill... seen.

To enjoy everything and to get the cliff area you want.... Wake up early.
