Kingston, Jamaica
Reviewed 24 March 2014

We loved the location of Samsara! It was quiet and not crowded-and the view of the sea was fabulous. We especially liked checking out the locals in the neighborhood. We had a great time eating and drinking with them. Our room was clean and comfortable. We opted for the AC (an additional fee). The cost of electricity is extremely high...

I just got back from my first trip to Jamaica and stayed at Samsara, what a great location and place to stay. If you go you must do the all inclusive. All of the staff was wonderful, everyone did anything they could do to make our stay the best it could be. I loved the "Jamaican Jerk" night and the...

Hi Shelli, it was so wonderful to welcome you and your fun group to Samsara for your first visit to Negril! Thanks for your compliments on our staff and home cooked meals.

We stayed in three locations while in Jamaica and this was our favorite and feels like a hidden gem. This is not a large chain resort so you shouldn't expect some of the frills you will get there. They came in every morning nearish to 10:30 to take your towels...you didn't get clean ones till late in the afternoon. That...

We read many reviews of this place prior to booking so we knew a lot of what we were getting into. I will try to add details on some of the things that we had questions on. I’ll also say before my comments that we are middle of the road travelers. We appreciate upscale but usually look for value as...

Compared to the typical, impersonal all-inclusive resort experience Samsara is a gem! We stayed in one of the little houses which had it's own loft, front porch, and hammock. We opened the front door everyday to see the blue sky and sea through leafy palm trees. What more would you ask for? I also appreciated that the resort was on...

We stayed here in Feb 2014 and its a decent resort. I wouldnt say economical compared to other all inclusive in Mexico or other Caribbean destination. The rooms are just decent not upscale. Demerits: 1. The All inclusive package is kinda ok. 2. They just have a small bar next to the pool which operates 10-10. 3. They have a...

The Samsara Cliff Resort and the sister resort Legends was everything I expected. Our room was clean and the bathroom was completely new. We did not go all inclusive and I am glad because there are small bars and restaurants everywhere within walking distance. The Samsara is located on the Cliffs which seems to be quietier and more relaxing than...
