“Great choice for 7 mile beach!!”
Reviewed 1 April 2012

We stayed for 8 nights in the upper verandah suite. We've done plenty of travelling south before but this was our first NON all inclusive visit. Before going, I'd done plenty of research on many sites and couldn't of been happier with our selection. Nirvana is a peaceful, relaxing place for a vacation. We had LOTS of beach room, we LOVED our room. We had originally made part of our decision based on wanting a room with AC...we never needed it. The breeze was great and we loved listening to the waves. The kitchen was basic...we used it less then we planned. The grocery store in Montego Bay is just like home with prices the same as home (ontario) The reason we used the kitchen less was everything was much closer then we expected and the restaurants were amazing! We enjoyed the vendor on the beach...lots to watch and they were not a bother at all....a simple "no thanks" was all it took but we did buy from many of them...the fruit was great from the fruit lady and the fresh banana bread was a nice treat! They work very hard around the property to make it so perfect!! We both enjoyed our massages on the beach, they had the table set up off to the left of the property...listened to the sound of the waves,,LOVED IT! Nirvana is a great spot and you won't be disappointed with your choice! Have fun....we sure did! PS The bed was very comfortable, we slept great!

NEGRIL'S perfect climate & the incredible natural beauty that surrounds you in the center of the beach at Nirvana are just a few reasons to vacation on Negril beach.

Nirvana's comfy beds & outstanding services of our staff who are happy to help you in every way.
All set in an exotic tropical beach front garden in the best location on Negril beach makes Nirvana the best place to come back to again & again.

Thanks for appreciating our efforts & come back soon.

I’ve been coming to Jamaica at least once a year for the last three years and I love it! But finding your place on the internet was the best thing ever. Nirvana is the only place I want to stay for now on. Here are just a few of the reasons why.
1 – The grounds and rooms were perfect – Since it was my birthday I got the room with the big bed all to myself. It was great being able to wake up fix a cup of joe and sit in the dining room and watch the sun on the water.
2 – The view from the chairs on the beach that Nirvana provided for us. We did not have to move all day if we didn’t want to. But when we did decide to move we walk up and down the beautiful 7 mile beach which Nigril is famous for.
3 – Playing in the water! Oh my goodness taking a swim in the morning and having a school of little silver fish swim passed and around – I was in heaven. I even got to see large crabs and turtles while I was in the water. There was this one morning when to my delight a very tiny brown fish was just swimming circles around me – it was so cute
We are already planning our next trip there!

We just returned from a week at Nirvana on the Beach in Negril and had a wonderful time. We were looking for a place that was not an isolated all-inclusive resort but still felt secure and comfortable. With Nirvana we hit that sweet spot. The staff made us feel welcome and the location was perfect -- right on the beach, in a relatively undeveloped spot -- with a parade of tourists (foreign and Jamaican) and vendors providing interesting people watching. Which is not to say that the beach was crowded; we were actually surprised at how quiet it was, even during Spring Break. In the early morning we could be entirely alone walking the beach, and we never had to wait to eat at one of the many local restaurants.

If you are looking for a family-friendly place, right on the beach, where you will feel like you are actually in Jamaica, Nirvana is a great choice. And Leon, the driver loosely affiliated with Nirvana, made getting back and forth from the airport a pleasure. He also took us out for a full day of sightseeing to YS Falls and the surrounding area and was more than happy to answer our questions about Jamaica and its culture. Highly recommended!

Truly.

You don't need to spend a lot to get to a near-perfect place.

Nirvana on the Beach offers very affordable accommodations in Negril. The rooms are located steps from the beach. But, none of the crowds and hassle of giant, all-inclusive resorts here. This place promotes a relaxed, calming environment for guests in the hotels handful of rooms.

The rooms range from rustic, well-appointed cabins to beach apartments. All are worthy of the cost and effort to get here. Beds are comfortable and showers are generally available in the rooms and outside.

The beach is nicely kept. Trustworthy security guards watch over guests and their possessions on the beach. The guards are keen to minimize any distraction or aggressive selling from "pandlers" who stroll the beach.

The cleaning crews will actually make fresh orange juice and cook authentic Jamaican meals (or any other type of food they know how to make; just ask). All the guests have to do is buy the provisions. Grocery stores are an easy 15-minute ride away. Nirvana provides almost-constant access to good, reliable drivers in the area.

There are not too many activities available though the hotel itself. However, I've visited Nirvana many times and, as an avid SCUBA diver, always managed to check a local yellow pages or website to pick up a dive with a local company.

Nirvana on the Beach promotes a safe, quiet, and friendly environment. If you stay more than a night or two it's hanrd not to make friends with most of the staff. The hardest part of staying at Nirvana, though, is having to leave.
