Great for the money.

If going to Negril on a budget, you must understand that you get what you pay for. I went to Negril and Samsara knowing that I had gotten a deal by general standards. If you want a 5 star hotel, then you had better get your wallet ready to pay twice or three times the money of Samsara. The staff as a whole were great, the location was really different and unique with the cliffs and the laid back attitude. However, there were constraints; like the road being hard to cross and access to other activities hard to get to. Having said this, with a realistic attitude, we had a great time and intend to go back again.

Great views, great staff, and it's not a rah rah hotel it's off the 7 mile beach so don't expect to be entertained it's a chill spot and that's what makes it cool. Within walking distance are a number of restaurants and places to hang! Also, the pool is good but the ocean is right there so who cares about the pool, nobody.

Loved everything about my stay at Samsara. The food was excellent and all of the people working there were very kind and helpful. Location is wonderful- right on the cliffs for a stunning view and close to great restaurants. Cant wait to go back!

We travelled to Jamaica and stayed at the Samsara. It was a long time ago now but when we were there, we had a great time. I have noticed all the changes that have happened and it makes me want to return to see if the same atmosphere is there. We had the 3 rooms looking out to sea. At that time the jacuzzi still had the roof over it. The staff were fantastic but I do know that some have moved on. There were 11 in our group, that included 4 children. We travelled there in November 1997.

The restaurant is great :) Everything else is great as well! We liked how close the location is to Rick's Cafe and the cliffs to jump off the resort are great for newbies like myself. Great staff l, no complaints

Very run down...

This property needs a lot of maintenance. You can clearly see exposed cement cracked peeling paint dangling light fixtures etc. you couldn’t use the wall plugs because the sockets were so poor. When we arrived we were given WiFi for only two people not all 3 of of us. When we tried to login it said maximum reached? It doesn’t appear that the owner is putting money back into this property. Same holds true for their sister property legends. The photos shown don’t show the neglect of the property and are not a true representation of what you will see.

My husband and I visited Negril for Christmas and our anniversary. We chose Samsara because the snorkeling and swimming onsite was very enticing. We chose the Pillar House Bungalow because this offered the best ocean views. The room was not well maintained, but the plumbing and A/C worked fine, so all was well. Two things that we were not expecting were that the bathroom would have open louvers to the outside (which will be explained later and why we gave an average rating) and that the shower was really open with no door. The shower is located so that people will not be able to see inside, so that was acceptable. The view from the balcony was spectacular and we loved sitting out there! One night, we noticed debris on the bathroom counter and sink. We removed it. It was back the next night and we came to realize that it was animal droppings. We complained twice about this but nothing was ever done about it. My engineer husband stuffed the louvers with towels and this proved to be a solution. We speculate that a lizard was getting in by climbing on vegetation that grew against the louvers. Why it chose to leave droppings we do not know. I do know that it was disgusting to find droppings where we were brushing our teeth and washing. The fact that there was no effort to place a screen over the louvers is the main reason for the average rating on this review. I do have many good things to say about the resort. The grounds are stunning. The cliffs are great as they are a perfect height to jump into the water and the ladders provide access out of the water. We had such fun swimming and snorkeling! One note, the water was too rough the first two days to go in, but we had a relaxing time on the great chaise lounges. The people at the resort were very laid back and friendly. The staff at the resort were wonderful! I especially want to acknowledge Patricia, Melissa and Kelly Ann from the restaurant as they were so friendly and accommodating. We treasure their friendship! Larry from the souvenir shop was very nice and helpful. We had a great time and we loved the outside spaces at this resort.
