Totoal Relaxation!!! Exactly what we needed

Let me start by dispelling some of the bad reviews that have been written about Samsara Cliffs Resort. If you are like me, you probably make it a point to check the bad reviews first. Most of the bad reviews can be quashed by simply reminding yourself, Jamaica is a third world country. So, you will likely not find too many "affordable" 5 star resorts with lavish accommodations and world class dining. (if that is what you are into, check out Vegas, not Jamaica). But, what Jamaica and Samsara lacks in 5 star amenities, it makes up for in its charms. It is beautiful beyond description and I found the Jamaican people to be some of the friendliest, most passionate and caring people the world knows. We spent a lot of time enjoying the open air bar at Samsara and the two primary bartenders (Owayne & Shanna) were absolutely awesome. They were both super friendly and open to share with me all manner of details about their country and cultures (which I love learning about). There was a constant rhythm of cultural music playing through the sound system and every so often the music would touch Owayne enough that he simply had to belt out a few lines of lyrics right along with the radio. Shanna was wonderful as well and really made you feel welcome. She and my girlfriend are even Facebook friends now... how cool is that!!! When you first arrive at Samsara Cliffs Resort you the very first person you will likely meet is, Peter. He'll be the guy grabbing your luggage out of the taxi. He'll also be he guy to show you to your room and Peter is the guy that can get things done for you (And, he'll tell you himself... "Anyting you need, mon... let m'know, I'll get it for you, mon!). And he, can. He will arrange taxi rides for you to other locations and he has the feel of being the guy who knows everyone. Peter is a man you can trust, Thanks Peter. The rest of the staff were great as well and I am ashamed that I don't know all of their names to give endorsements. I will say this, they don't have a ton of towels and certainly none for the beach, so bring your own beach towels or buy some souvenir towels at their on site gift shop with Larry for $10 a piece (Larry, I think, is the only East Indian Jamaican on the island :) I hope he sees this, he's great too). They will come around in the morning and collect your used bath towels to wash and bring back when they clean the room. This odd towel rotation took us about a day to figure out, but once you know what to expect, it's all good. Our room was cleaned daily and completely. I like to keep my room pretty cool so I have a place to retreat from the heat. I set the A/C down to 18 degrees C (about 66-67 degrees F which is cooler than it ever gets in Jamaica... I think) and no one touched it again in my absence. My room was always cool and comfortable for me. The grounds are well maintained and manicured. All in all, I think Nagril in general and Samsara in particular is the perfect choice for a trip to Jamaica. Be realistic about your expectations and you won't be disappointed. We are already planning our next trip to Samsara.

Had a great time. Can't beat the location / price. The views are beautiful and the hotel staff is incredibly accommodating. There are great restaurants and bars nearby. Also, you have access to their other hotel on the beach.

Incredible Stay!

We had a great time staying at Samsara! It was very relaxing and the staff were extremely friendly and accommodating and the cliffs are the cherry on top! I loved that it wasn't like a typical resort and you got to actually get to know the staff. I would definitely stay here again!
