Hotel Overview

Hotel Samsara is an intimate, oceanfront resort located on Negril's famous cliffs, with their crystal clear coves, lagoons, and stunning rock formations. It is only five minutes from Seven Mile Beach and a two-hour drive from the airport. This property is set on five acres of lush tropical gardens and features spectacular ocean views, easy access to the ocean, excellent snorkeling and scuba diving.

Hotel Samsara is a full-service Negril hotel with swimming pools, restaurant, bar, spa services, sun terrace, PADI scuba center, and games room. At Samsara, the pool is oceanside, offering fabulous views of the Caribbean Sea.

There is a free shuttle twice daily to Hotel Samsara's sister hotel, Legends, where guests have exchange privileges at both hotel facilities, including all-inclusive food and domestic beverages! The hotel is very spacious with large sundecks carved into the cliff and easy access to the sea for swimming, snorkeling, and scuba diving via steps and ladders just like getting into a swimming pool.

Hotel Samsara has an on-site Scuba Center for your convenience and fun. The Marine Life Diver's Scuba Centre offers scuba diving lessons and PADI certifications. Once certified, you can dive right off the spectacular cliffs and take boat excursions and night dives.

    Perfect location on the cliffs

    Amazing views and location. Safe and private resort. Good staff. Food is decent. We have tried several other locations in Negril, and keep returning to Samsara on the cliffs. A lot of repeat visitors.

    Eyrie awaits you

    This was our 6th time staying at Samsara Cliffs resort, it's our home away from home. We love the fact that it's small , safe, and clean. Amazing staff, always smiling and friendly ( Rasheeka Lewis, Georgia Dean, Peter, Melvin, George, are just a few of the great people who work hard daily to make your stay a great one) We loved some upgrades were done since our last visit. Catch the shuttle to sister resort Legends and spend a day on beautiful seven mile beach. If you want sun, fun, snorkeling, and yummy food this is the place to go.

    It was okay

    Samsara had pleasant workers and was easy to find. The check-in process was also smooth. Overall a decent stay. My only complaint was the room no ventilation and was extremely dated. The sheets and blankets were always damp feeling. The bathroom which had poor shower pressure and no vent had the place even more damp. Our toilet also overflowed three times and we were finally moved to a new room on the last day to shower before we left. If the rooms were updated I would stay here again.

    Perfect island blend!!!

    We could not ask for a better holiday. The staff at both resorts are amazing. We stayed a couple years ago at Legends and the last 2 weeks at SamSara. Both resorts have their unique charm. Check in is always like you are coming to your home away from home. Jennifer and the other fantastic front desk girls are always helpful with big smiles and a great laugh. Thanks for the welcome back gift package we really appreciated it!!! The food at both resorts is like your mom's home cooked meals. Tasty and always enough of a selection even the pickiest eater like me can find something great to eat. Hat's off to the kitchen and restaurant staff. Big shout out to Patricia, Kendrick, Rosheka and too many more to mention who make every meal great. If you love the fast paced action Legends is the resort to stay if you like the beauty of nature SamSara is the place to go. I love that you have the option to use both resorts. Stay at one enjoy both who could ask for a better holiday. Thanks again Rush and your co-worker for the great his and her pampering massage. We stayed on the garden side in a wonderful little cabin the gardening staff work hard to keep all the grounds beautiful. Thanks Peter for always helping us to cross the busy road safely. Want to go to Legends for the day Omar will give you a free ride there at 10:00 am and back at 4:00pm. These times don't fit into your schedule no problem for $5.00 payable at the front desk he will zip you over to the other resort no need to flag down a taxi. Bring your own beach towels we also packed a small coffee maker because I'm a early riser and like to enjoy the sunrise with a coffee in hand. Once again thank-you SamSara for a fantastic holiday and we will be back soon. Doug & Darlene

    Relaxing stay

    It was our first time staying up on cliffs. Kind of got off on rough start but thanks to beautiful reception Jenique with her warm hospitality and one love for all. The place was very clean everything you needed. Guys work very hard and it shows flower plant everything beautiful. I think we split up next year and spend some time on beach wasn’t enough entertainment. The massage ladies were awesome I think one was name rashada you must get massage so relaxing by the beach . Overall just nice clean relaxing place.
