Samsara Cliff Resort sits on the west end seaside cliffs of Negril. The area is poised for excellent snorkeling and scuba diving in crystal clear waters. Ladders ascend from the lowest cliff to rocky shore and sea. Two-story stucco buildings and beachfront wooden cottages are painted festively in bright colors and rooms feature balconies or patios. Some, but not all, have air-conditioning. Chez Maurice restaurant serves delicious local and international cuisine on a terrace overlooking the cliffs. Be sure to show your family the large pool! Samsara has a dive center on its property that offers beginners classes and full scuba excursions for a fee. Nearby vendors supply water sports equipment to enhance your family’s beach experience. Parents may enjoy unwinding in the oceanfront Samsara Spa with a moonlight massage or body scrub.
When your family stays at Samsara, you have full use of their partner’s facilities at Legends Beach Resort down the road. Legends offers access to white-sand Seven Mile Beach and two additional pools. Complimentary transport is offered between the resorts every morning, afternoon and at dinnertime. Families have the choice of all inclusive rates or room-only rates, flexibly applied throughout all or part of the stay.

Absolutely loved my stay at this hotel! The food was great and so was the staff. Very friendly and professional staff who made you feel welcomed. The rooms were immaculately well decorated with hibiscus ???? and towels folded in swan designs. The pools were refreshingly relaxing and if you’re able to dive you’ve got the perfect cliffs to dive off from. We were also able to go on a boat tour of the Negril cliffs from the hotel which was perfect as we got to view the corals from the glass bottom boat. If you’re ever in Negril, Jamaica this place is well worth the stay. The price was also attractive and well worth our length of stay. Excellent sunset views and brilliant drinks and cocktail ???? from the bar. I’m definitely returning
Love this place will definitely be back. Food was well cooked for each meal, chicken, fish or beef and Jamaican style. Had pasta options once or twice. No snacks. Drinks available at the one and only bar by the beach. Water available all day at bar. Beach at Legends is stunning but there are vendors. Two pools available. One small by the bar and one big across the street. Both are maintained well. Room are big with great AC. Staff are all extremely friendly. You have the option to visit the sister resort Samsara via free shuttle daily to and from Legends. Samsara doesn’t have a beach, only concrete dock like area with ladders to climb into the water. Not for beginner swimming as water is deep but clear. Wi-Fi in both hotels. No gym. Not like the big chain resorts, more quaint and family style. There is a street to cross at Legends but they provide a crossing guard who helps cross the street every time. Will be back for sure.
