Samsara Cliff Resort
- What's Included
Samsara was beautiful... cliff diving was fun... glass bottom boats. Short drive to Rick's Café and the sister resort (or boat ride) for the beach at Legends. Good restaurants close also. Staff was fun and extremely friendly and helpful. We felt like part of the family and always felt safe.
We loved staying at this hotel ! We came with a group of just over 40 and we were all treated like royalty! The staff here at Samsara are top notch , some of the nicest most genuine people you could ever meet. The food here is wonderful, authentic and home cooked. The cliffs are amazing, we did a lot of cliff jumping and the snorkelling, so beautiful. We experienced a true authentic Jamaican experience here that will never be forgotten. I know we will all be talking about how much we loved our stay here for a long time One love !
I stayed at legends in Negril which is the sister hotel. I wish I would of stayed at samsara my whole trip. The cliff view was nice and you do not have to deal with the hustlers like you do one the beach by legends.
We're Negril vets, about 12 trips in and have stayed in everything from big all inclusives to the small boutiques. We are not over the top fancy, just want clean, hassle free and to get what we paid for. Book in starts with front desk noticing Expedia priced the room as package price for two guests and not as a per guest because we had booked all inclusive they wanted an extra $300 for the second guest. We were able to show them it was just a booking error and the correct money was paid, we had just switched room type and extra guest didn't transfer. Expedia spent over an hour explaining the same thing and showing they the records which I had as well. NO LUCK, they wouldn't budge, they wanted the extra ransom. They didn't even try to dispute that the correct money was paid, only kept pointing to the obvious error on the booking and demanding their extra fee. We even requested a refund and to go elsewhere, they would not have it. Long story short, we paid the fee, Expedia reimbursed us and we moved on.The rest of the stay was so/so at best. The highlights, the food was actually pretty good for a basic resort. The all inclusive beverage program is a joke, you can only choose from a pre selected drink menu, no deviations. Its either these drinks or draft beer. We asked for an Irish Coffee, nope, $12 up charge for the shot of liquor. So basically you are paying for draft beer or super sweet drinks that do not contain any sort of alcohol. As others have stated they pour from a different rum bottle if you are on the all inclusive. It is true, they do.The staff was the saving grace of the trip, aside from the young girl and young man at the front desk everyone else is very nice and friendly. The bar staff and the grounds crew is great, all nice fun people, no problems mon. The room, we paid for an upgraded suite, it was supposed to include a coffee maker, no dice. I even bought fresh coffee and was very much looking forward to being able to brew coffee. Young kid at front desk told me there are not any and basically don't bother asking it won't happen. We also had to pay the $4 ransom to use the hotels safe deposit box. Lame. Out of three nights at hotel two nights we didn't receive wash cloths or proper towels. Also the one day they turned our A/C off and we came back to a hot room.There is good about the property, the crowd was fun, location great, and its just a cool vibe. The bad is you always feel like you are being burned for a buck from check in,housekeeping to the bar policies. We didn't meet any repeat guests here like we usually do at other resorts, we see why. Its skin you, rather than shear you style of business.
Just Atrocious...no A.C just a fan that you have to put ice in... around 1pm dare not be in the bungalow...the heat is ridiculous...the food? What food? Inclusive where? They reuse condiment containers disgusting!!! Witnessed dishes scrapped in trash in bar area dishes placed aside to be washed! Unsanitary!!! Food looks like slop served in a correctional facility!!! No bacon really??? Other rooms smelled horrible as we had friends check in before we did. No internet!! Stray cats. Rigged Rusted Seating... advertising 40 inch television instead received small outdated TV with huge bold green line with little visibility. Well trained staff programmed perhaps!!! The rebuttals given! A resort that advertises to gain tourist funds then treat you horrible! Cheap Cheap Cheap!!!! The owner needs to spend money and spruce things up place could fall off the Cliff far as I'm concerned it would help. Just old and the feel isn't vintage or old Jamaica more so Alcatraz...once there you will want to escape venture off into God knows where.... anywhere but Samsara!!! Notice the response from them... typical classic....also Pathetic!!!! The staff could use better uniforms also!!! You see these employees from sun up to sun rise... they were nice considering the conditions....place needs remodeling...we won't be back and I will tell everyone I know!!!!
