Great stay, it looks like a simple hotel but it literally has everything you’ll need. Everything. Restaurants literally a walk away and a thrilling cliff jump into the Caribbean Sea. Overall, my family and I enjoyed our stay.

Beautiful Cliff Resort
Our original room was supposed to be a Garden bungalow. It was a tiny room off the garden. Not at all what the picture showed. We asked to switch rooms and they did accommodate with an increase of price of course. New room was better. No pillowtop mattresses in any room which it did say they had. Service like everywhere was slow. They don't have a good sense of customer service in the food and beverage arena anywhere in Jamaica that we found. Love the sights, and cliffs. Snorkle if the water is clear and dive into the water if you so dare. The sunsets and storms were gorgeous and being close to Jamwest was great. We zip lined and road horses into the water. Drivers are crazy and no sidewalks so while things are close, walking isn't safe. Bar closes at 10pm no ice machines. Have to get ice from the bar.

What is advertised is not what you will get. Staff was rude. We went 2 days without towels since house keeping “didn’t do the laundry”. The food was atrocious. We ended up checking out early and going to another hotel. Terrible experience. I do not recommend.

The room was clean and the view of the ocean was amazingly breathtaking, very comfortable and private with a beautiful view of the garden as well. The front desk staff was absolutely warm and pleasant and helpful, the kitchen staff were very hospitable and made sure that the food and the service was exactly how we wanted it, I have to shout out Felicia in restaurant she was amazing, very warm and friendly and a big big shout out to Peter apart of the night staff, he made sure we were well taken care of. Samsara was great! Definitely going back.

This hotel is one of the worst places i have been to, the hotel is old and dirty. The food at the restaurant is disgusting. The rooms are outdated and not clean. The staff are not helpful at all and they need a lot of training on costumer service. We moved the second day to their sister hotel legends which is worst than samsara. I would not recommend this property or legends to anyone.
