A Piece of Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

I've been going to Nirvana for at least ten years. It's a laid back kind of place...cottages, simple and kept spotlessly clean...you feel like you're in botanical gardens...you never feel like you're being intruded upon...it's safe and peaceful. The grounds are kept clean 24 hours a day. The staff is amazing and so helpful. In the morning, you hear the gentle lilt of Jamaican accents...as you awake to the scent of Blue Mountain coffee brewing... you can get your laundry done...you can have one meal a day cooked for you. Nirvana has it's own stretch of beach and you're never intruded upon...you can just relax and enjoy the beauty that surrounds you. It's in the middle of everything and can walk to all the restaurants on the beach. There's music every night, somewhere along the beach. So, if you want a peaceful, private holiday, without the glitz and glamour of a hotel, try the little cottage in Negril, have a holiday at Nirvana.

The ONLY place to stay in Negril!!

  • 5 of 5

Nirvana deserves 10 stars! This was our 3rd trip to Nirvana but our 9th to Jamaica. After many stays at other places, we have found "OUR" place. We LOVE Nirvana. The staff is AMAZING. I know I will be leaving a few out and I do aplologize in advance for that.

We will start with the driver Leon. Great guy and super nice! Always waiting at the airport with a smile on his face.

Security is A++. Patrick greeted us at the front gate late Friday night and got us to our room.

*Errol is day watch. He makes sure you aren't bothered by anyone, and I enjoy our conversations. He is a wealth of knowledge. He always knows exactly where to put our chairs. I hope he works there many years to come. He works hard. Never a worry for us to leave our stuff at our chairs and run down the beach. Great guy!

Shine the night guard makes sure everyone is safe and sound. He is also available for any questions or help you may need. We NEVER have anything to worry about leaving at night or coming back via beach side or street side.

Sandra is just the sweetest thing. She is also a wealth of knowledge and can set up massages, babysitting or anything you might need. Super sweetheart!

The grounds---Oh my gosh--they out do theirselves in that department. Always something new to look at in the gardens. Moses and Otis both are outstanding men with a work ethic that is almost unseen these days, in the states. The beach is immaculate every morning. I watched Otis work alone. He worked with his heart and soul. I watched and he is so happy! Where can I apply? He has so much pride in all he does. I see it!

Housekeeping staff: Where do I start. Lynn is a good woman. JudyAnn in laundry is a sweetie as well. (There are more and I knew I'd leave some out.) It's almost like they are ghosts. We leave for a quick cup of coffee and come back to an immaculate room. Great group of women. Again, I left out 4 or 5 names.

If you want to feel like the most important person around, this is for you. The staff make Nirvana what it is. We enjoy it immensely. We stay in the Upper Verandah Suite and it's perfect for us. I can't comment on any of the other cottages layout, but I can say they ALL look very inviting. There are plenty of dishes and such. I just can't say anything bad. Nirvana is the HAPPIEST place on earth.

Already booking for next year!!

Thanks Nirvana, for being my Nirvana!

If only I could give it 6 stars....

  • 5 of 5

I can't begin to say how much we loved this property! This was my third time in Jamaica, and no other place compared. The property is clean and the rooms have a very rustic feel to them, which I love. If you are looking for a resort type place, this isn't for you. But if you're looking for a small, peaceful, clean, and friendly place, you definitely should consider Nirvana. It lives up to its name. My husband and I celebrated our 1st anniversary last week at Nirvana; it was more than what we expected. A week was not enough! Everything from the property to the staff was excellent! My husband is a very picky person when it comes to where we stay for our vacations, he was very pleased and looking forward to returning to celebrate each anniversary. Big thanks to Sandra, the housekeepers, Kevin (and the other security guys), Lemroy, and the maintenance guys for helping to make it a great vacation. The only problem we had was the WiFi service. I teach online so internet was much needed, but not reliable at the time. Lemroy was very attentive to this, but we still had problems. My husband who is a network engineer did some research as to why the network was not working, the problem was with the carrier. We're not going to let the problems with the internet keep us from returning, I'm sure they'll get it taken care of. We are now part of the Nirvana Family and we'll be bringing more family with us to vacation here soon!

Perfection in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time to Jamaica and thanks to Nirvana and it's people, it will not be my last trip. Everything is clean, the people are great, close to everything, just absolutely peaceful and enjoyable. People from the high end all inclusives were envious because of the beach area being open and uncrowded. And if you really want to be with the crowds, you are within walking distance. If you are wanting a homey, comfortable, and clean atmosphere then this is the place. Thanks to Zemroy, Sharon, Breezy, Shine, Errol, and the ladies, I now have a new family. Go! It's worth it.

Great for kids

  • 5 of 5

I think it's the nicest place on the whole beach! We had hours and hours when we were the only ones in the water or on the beach: it was amazing to feel so uncrowded and safe and relaxed. We loved all the shade and the space. Errol was always nearby, making sure we were ok with the vendors or if our kid needed a floatie :). He was chill and alert. Loved him. And Sandra greeted us when we arrived! So nice! And Doris got David his heart meds right away. And the room was clean & perfect, as you recommended (the first-floor suite, so our kid could run in and out easily).

The grounds were gorgeous! And Moses told us about the trees when we asked. It was awesome. We'd come back in a second.

Take care,

Dana (from snowy Winnipeg)

PS. Last year, we stayed at a huge, beautiful all - inclusive, and the beach was crowded and there was a scramble for shade everywhere. Nirvana is wayyyyyyy better :)

Stay Here for a really nice relaxing time

  • 5 of 5

Nirvana is AMAZING. The people are SO friendly. It is a 30 second walk from your bed to the beautiful beach, clear blue water and sun. The grounds are so well-maintained and people cook for you if you get the food. It is a short walk from many restaurants and activities. The only downside is no air conditioning in cottage #3. But honestly - it didn't bother me at all. It is a true deal and I highly recommend it!
