BOOKED FOR A WEEK, LEFT WITHIN 4 HOURS!

Escape from Alcatraz has nothing on this seedy ZERO star hell aka Samsara Cliffs Resort. The one thing notable of the location is the ocean side which they cannot take credit for. This by far was my most frightening and dismaying experience in all my years of travel. The rooms and property look like a prison. Photos on the internet are photoshopped. The furniture is old and full of mildew. The staff I engaged with particularly Jeniquie and some hoodlum who claimed to be security Rohan were rude and threatening. My companion and I realized we likely would not survive the night when Rohan threatened "ah dead yuh wah dead" [You want to die?] for complaining about the conditions of the place. Based on the deplorable conditions of the property, it's not a wonder that gangsters and their girlfriends are the employees. I paid for the entire week's stay before arriving believing what I saw online is what I would get when I arrived in person. I LEFT WITHIN 4 HOURS. They lied to booking.com claiming I never checked in. I truly wish that were the case. I left the safety of my home to be in fear of my life at Samsara Cliffs Resort. If you value your safety, this is not the place for you. If you are seeking to be duped out of your hard earned dollars in exchange for hell on earth....you have found the right place. Beyond the hell endured at Samsara, we had a breath-taking time on the strip in Negril at the Rayon Hotel which I will review separately.

very affordable, awesome area and views

My wife and i decided on this place due to the affordability. We were greeted with smiles, smooth checkin, and escorted to our ocean view room, the property is small but very personal. We also had exchange priviledges to Legends Negril. We would recommend this to anyone to enjoy Negril.

First time visit and it was wonderful!

Just came back from staying at the Samsara Cliff. It was my first visit ever to Jamaica and it was wonderful. My best friend and I went and loved everything. The only thing I wasn't prepared for was the 1 1/2 hour drive from the airport to the property. We were so ready when we got there. Once we did, we took the beauty of the nature and the people. It felt very authentic there. The staff was nice. The drinks were great. The food was awesome. We talked a lot of the staff and they kept us laughing. Larry from the gift shop was super nice. He was so helpful and made us feel comfortable. Maurice and OWayne definitely took care of us in the drinks department. We got massages there on the cliff. We visited Legends twice and got in the water. Bartenders Jennifer and Shenay also took care of us and gave a dancing lesson. All the people at the bar were having a good time. The only thing about Legends was the people trying to get you to buy something as soon as you hit the sand. The security there though was helpful. Samsara was everything I wanted and more and can't wait to go back. My ONLY thing is if I could buy the property and fix it up, I would. I would get new furniture, new paint, offer mimosas with breakfast (that's a personal request LOL), new shower heads, fix the outlets, get more secure locks for the doors and maybe some citronella candles at the bar and in the dining area. My bestie and I got ate up but it was all good. I loved everything. Thank you so much for showing us a great time!

Nice place to relax!

Very nice place to stay! The views were amazing from our Ocean front room. Staff were very nice and helpful.Rooms need some updating but at least they are clean. Wifi did not appear to work well but who needs it on vacay? Have a restaraunt on site but did not try the food. Lots of local spots nearby to eat at. The cliffs were great to swim and snorkel around in. Definitely would stay again.

Perfect Price. Location Location Location.

Room cost me $75 bucks. Blue water cliff diving, good food, safe. relaxing. well managed property but nobody at front desk from 10pm till 7am. Pool is fantastic. Smoking Ganga in Jamaica is almost never frowned upon. No problems here. Smoke away as you overlook the blue water and jumpoff the "hotel cliffs". Cliffs about 10-15 feet. Real cliff jumping right down the street at Ricks. $500 Jamaican cab ride like $3 US.
