Inside, there were two beds, one king and one double, as well as tv dressers, writing table, armour and a clean basic washroom.Samsara employees were friendly and helpful whenever we had a request.We spent forteen days waking up swimming, reading...

PROS: This hotel can be an “AI” all-inclusive or not. I will write about the AI experience. Even though our room was already paid in full, when checking in, they took an imprint of our credit card for $100 USD for miscellaneous charges. If your room is not yet available, you can safely leave your bags behind the front desk....

I just got back from a 1 week stay at Samsara Resort in Negril, Jamaica. I have never been one to sugar coat my reviews, and I am not going to start now! I will give Samsara an overall 3 rating out of 5. This was my first time in Jamaica and I wanted to go in with an open...

Samsara is a nice little laid back resort in a lovely location up on the cliffs. It's a great place to relax; very private with lots of sun loungers dotted around the resort. Even though the hotel was busy the communal areas never felt too crowded. There's not much in the way of nightlife in the immediate area surrounding the...

There were 40 of us staying at Samsara for a wedding in October 2016. Just after hurricane Matthew blew through... Although our group was large, the Samsara treated us all very well - right from the 2 year old ring bearer to our 84 year old gramma! The rooms were comfortable with great views. The pool repairs were delayed so...

We very much enjoyed our experience at Samsara, but it might not appeal to everyone. If you are looking for a lot of planned activities, night life, sandy beaches, fancy food and new pristine buildings Samsara may not be for you. If you have mobility issues Samsara may not be the best bet - there are a lot of steps...

Just returned from a week at delightful Samsara. Everyone was so friendly and I would definitely go back. Marcia our daily visitor and Melvin who was there to help with every need were our favorites.

Very quiet and peaceful place. This is a wonderful place to travel to if you want to get away and not have any worries. It also is located on a cliff which allows you to jump in the water and have a great snorkeling experience. Lastly you will get treated with a beautiful sunset each clear night.
