Hotel Samsara

Samsara Hotel is for the budget minded Caribbean cheaper. It is a large, sprawling hotel for the West End of Negril. The rooms are clean and neat, and a good value for the buck. The hotel is central to this area, within walking distance to numerous shops and restaurants. There is space for group meetings on site.

The fifty rooms are spread over a wide area of the cliffs. There are seaside rooms, gardenside rooms and seaside cabins that are octagonal shaped buildings perched on stilts. The outstanding feature of Samsara is the expanse of room for sunbathing and enjoying the view from the cliffs. The pool and Jacuzzi are close to the open air bar. There is volleyball, ping-pong, basketball, and a pool table to pass the time.

The staff is friendly and attentive here. They will help you arrange trips to see the local waterfalls or take a sunset horseback ride on the vistas overlooking the sea. The snorkeling is very good along the cliffs, and scuba diving can be arranged. As well, there is a shuttle twice daily to the sister hotel, Legends, which is located on the beach in Negril. From there you have access to all the activities and restaurants on the beach.

The rooms are modest but comfortable. Most are air-conditioned and all but the garden side rooms have nice views of the sea. The floors are tiled and all have balconies or private patios. There are phones available for collect and credit card international calls and safes are located in the office. The restaurant is good with a varied menu. Prices range from $12.00-$24.00US and buffets and local dishes with entertainment are featured some evenings of the week.
