If you're looking for a relaxing getaway at an all-inclusive with no beach just a cliffside (i.e. no panhandlers) this is the place for you. View is beautiful, staff is attentive but not overbarring and food is wonderful (if you enjoy fish, chicken and standard American breakfasts). Did not particularly like that tipping was allowed at an all-inclusive, stressed me out a bit since I didn't know what to tip. But since the exchange rate was 85 Jamaican Dollar to 1 USD, I think anything is appreciated. We tipped the individuals that helped us on a daily basis near the end and then left a pool tip on the credit card at check out. I only left the resort one day to take a sunset "booze cruise", it was a good time and we snorkeled for 25 minutes. Rick's Cafe is only about 0.25 miles away so it's walkable, but I wouldn't suggest walking too much further. Things we learned...spring for the transportation to & from the airport thru The Caves (call ahead). It costs a little more, but is a direct shot to/from the airport. Otherwise you make stops at many other resorts and it takes 2 hrs, versus about 1.25 hrs direct. Get the cave hot tub at sunset, not moon light. You can't see anything for the moon, but sunset would be beautiful. You can buy all of the souveneirs you want at the airport, may be a little more expensive but much less hassle. Be prepared to be propositions for various "things," not at the resort, but anytime you leave. Finally, make sure you have a Dark & Stormy!

This is a laid back unpretencious place. Nice very clean rooms with ceiling fans. We opted to pay extra for air conditioning in our room near the end of our stay as the weather got warmer and more humid. We originally elected to skip the all inclusive plan, because there are so many good places to eat in Negril, but the food at the hotel was so good we paid for the all inclusive plan after a few days and had most of our meals there or at the "sister resort" Legends. The Sunday night Jamaican meals, served on the patio next to the ocean were particularly nice.We joined other hotel guests most nights to watch the great sunsets. Everyone from the front desk staff to housekeeping were professional and very nice. While the hotel was nearly full, it never felt crowded. There were plenty of places to sit by both pools and the ocean, with handy short ladders for climbing out of the ocean. Samsara is on the cliff side of Negril, Legends on the beach. This is a great place to get away from it all, and still be near enough to hit all the party places if you choose (we didn't). There is a well respected scuba dive shop and instruction on the grounds, but we were happy with the snorkeling, which we enjoyed even more than Cozemel. The gardens are beautiful, security staff pleasant and helpful with hints on getting around. The bar staff was particularly helpful in suggesting places to go that weren't in the guide books. All in all, the staff made a very nice hotel wonderful.

Knowing how little I paid, I was a little skeptical about this resort before our trip. Upon arrival I was happy to see that the resort looked just like the pictures, no surprises. The hotel staff was super friendly and accomodating. The rooms were basic, nothing special. Ants on the bathroom floor, but not a big deal. The location is tucked away so you're not on the cliffs or beach. I could imagine it being boring if you plan to spend a lot of time at the resort, although they've got a pool, there's not much to do. We were there for a friend's wedding, so we spent a lot of time at their resort which was on the cliff side and was gorgeous. We didn't spend a lot of time at the Oasis, so for us it was perfect, just a clean place to lay our heads. Great food in the restaurant, excellent jerk pork, however food takes a long time.

My family and I had a wonderful stay at the Sunset on the Cliff Resorts in Negril Jamaica. The service was great, the food (breakfast) was excellent and the rooms were very clean. My only negative which was not a major problem, out of our 5 day stay there, we only got to use the pool 2 times. It was closed for cleaning most of the time. apart from that, it was just great!, I will recommend it to others and I'm hoping to stay there again for our family vacation in the summer of 2012.
