... off with caution tape. You have to be so careful while diving and really know what you are doing, also there are signs all over ricks about jumping at your own risk. If something happens to you while diving it is not their responsibility. If you are brave enough to risk it props to you!
This is my short story of Negril! Whatever you want it is in Negril, the beach, the parties, great food, great people, so many hotel options, islands to travel to nearby, and local spots to eat!
... side, the children as just so happy! They start their mornings with devotion, where they sing and pray, it is quite lovely to participate in and see how much joy this brings into their lives. The children are respectful and caring, they want you to learn about their culture, and they want to know all about yours. Opening up to these children, and the staff within the school was great for me, I learned so much, and met some really amazing people. Life long friends I hope!
... the next morning. The Bob Marley museum is ~2 km from my hotel and when I mentioned to hotel staff if it was walking distance they just laughed and said "oh noooooo, you need a taxi". They are not walkers...or it’s a scam to get money from me into the pockets of cab drivers. Given my short time here (1 afternoon basically), I taxi’d to the Museum and then walked back to the hotel taking in a few sights along the way including the Governor ...
Honey, we're home! Time to ring in the New Year at our favorite spot, Couples Swept Away in beautiful Negril, Jamaica. This time, we did commit on exploring more Jamaican culture and doing more activities, and did learn a little more about their culture . However, most of our days where spent laying on the gorgeous 7 Mile Beach. Ya ...
After running across some pictures of my trip to Jamaica I remembered that I had a very out of date travel pod that needed some attention. So, here I am a whole year later sharing the details and pictures of my rendezvous to Negril Beach, Jamaica.
Myself and couple of friends decided that we needed to take a summer trip and after much discussion Jamaica became the lucky winner, or should I say we were the lucky ones? Jamaica is ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Blue Cave Castle Negril
Loved Blue Cave
We stayed in the Penthouse at blue cave and loved it. The view was amazing and the sounds of the waves crashing against the cliffs were fantastic to wake up to. The grounds were beautiful and we loved our morning coffee. Snorkelling was also a lot of fun, as was exploring the surrounding area. Both Bill and Pirate were very nice and helpful.
The way Negril should be experienced
My wife and I just returned from Negril having spent 14 days at the Blue Cave Castle. I've been to Negril on numerous occassions but have never stayed on the cliffs. The Castle was everything we wanted and more.The views are spectactulor and the rooms,though not fancy, are nice and a terrific bargain. We were able to snorkel almost every day right from our location and I would suggest bringing your own equiptment. There are several affordable resturants within walking distance or a short cab ride that offer both Jamaican and American food. I recommend Choices and Ragga Muffin. For a relaxing vacation, you can't beat the Castle.
Incredible for the price
We were in awe of our location and view on the cliffs. My husband and I had a huge balcony(the penthouse balcony) all to ourselves as there was noone staying in the penthouse. We paid $40. a night and got a $500. a night view and location. The manager, Bill and, Pirate the public relations guy(I think) were both very nice. The entire experience was soooo laid back. It was exactly what you would dream a Jamaican vacation would be!! The only drawback was the cliff road the castle is on is a hair raising experience to say the least and when walking on it, say a prayer.
Was an awesome experience
We visited the castle with 25 friends in July, we absolutely loved it!!!! We loved having Jamaican coffee ready for us in the mornings!!!!
The owner and employees were very friendly and treated us like family!
We loved the privacy and peacefulness, but loved being able to walk right outside of the gate and walk to shopping, dining, etc........Great food very close from the really reasonable Jenny's to the very expensive resort dining....What a view!!!! Can't say enough nice things about it!!!!
My wife, as of 10/21/03, stayed at Blue Cave Castle and had the greatest experince of our lives! We went there with 12 of our closest friends and family. Blue Cave, with the help of Weddings by Isabelle, put on the wedding of our dreams.
well we just returned from the castle.let me tell you.dont bother! the castle is not the place to go. we thought we could save a couple of bucks by going here but found it to be very expensive.we went though $300.00 us in just 1 day! when we arrived we went for a quick bite to eat. we were told just down the street was a good little resturant(chioces).well had 2 eggs each with chicken mixed in and 1 red stipe.the check.....$25.00us. it didnt get any better. we were ripped off at there jerk fest that nite. $22 us to get in....(was supposed to be $3.00 us. dinner was another ripoff 1 jerk chicken 2 diet cokes (agian nice little local.resturant!) $30.00 us. $20.00 to get there.$15.00 to get back! like i said we went here thinking that hey we could save some bucks but the people there all took advantage of us.
Can't beat it
After a dozen stays in Jamaica this is the best. No tv, no ac, no problem. You may think you need them but you don't. The song of the ocean and the refreshing breezes are ample. Safety and privacy are paramount and the sunsets are second to none. The prices are great and the staff is friendly. I can go on...
Blue Cave Castle
My husband & I just returned from 8 days at the Blue Cave Castle in Negril. We stayed in the Penthouse and it was just dreamy! This was our 4th trip to Jamaica, the last 3 times we stayed in Montego Bay, with just day trips to Negril. We will ALWAYS stay in Negril from now on. If you're looking to dine on the best lobsters, try Byrons ... outdoor hut where he cooks the lobsters on a grill.
The blue cave castle is a must. I have been going for seven years and every where I have stayed at nothing competes with the castle. I stayed in room 8 I believe it is a private stair case on the other side of castle than the tower room. This was a deluxe room but was huge had a huge sliding door onto a balcony. If you like being in a quite hotel away from the tourist beach zone. This place is close to everything but feels like you are in a secure palace of your own. Next time I go I am staying in the penthouse it was taken already when I satyed last. Awsome time there very private no hassle by anyone.
Blue Cave is awesome
My husband and I stayed at the Castle in April of 2002. We stayed in the Penthouse room and loved it. This place has so much charater. We had enough room for 30 people. There is 3 decks that go with the Penthouse. The view is one of the best in Negril and very private. We all over tanned for many hours on our deck. It is in a nice location on the cliffs and there are many places to eat within walking distance. Catching a cab to the beach is no problem and it is a nice walk to the Hi-Lo. I would stay at the Castle again but would have to have the Penthouse:)
