Samsara is a GREAT hotel with an Awesome & Friendly Staff
Our stay at the Samsara was great! In all honesty I thought because I didn't splurge on a 5 star resort I was going to have an aweful time in Jamaica, but for what it lacked in emenities, it made up for in friendly staff, great views & awesome rates! We stayed in one of the little huts away from the main hotel that had a beautiful ocean view, a few bugs, but nothing I couldn't handle. If you stay here make sure to take bug spray & mosquito repellant. Take advantage of the free shuttle to Legends resort & enjoy the 7 mile white sandy beaches. & make sure to visit Rick's Cafe on the opposite side & watch the cliff divers jumping into the crystal blue waters. If you decide to take a stroll down the road be prepared to say NO many times & negotiate prices way down before you buy anything. The closer you get to downtown, the cheaper stuff gets. Mourene was our bartender at Samsara & was a very nice lady & made the stay well worth our while just getting to know her. Elvis carves custom wood pieces just down the road & can make you a custom carving for a reasonable price if you have a picture of what you want. Desmond is also down the way & he will cut you a deal on just about anything "my friend!" There's a little shack near Legends (across the street from Sunrise Hotel) called Reggae Cafe, that has the BEST Jamaican food we tried in Jamaica, very authentic & very good. Other than that, keep an open mind & remember your there for the experience, not for the luxury! I will definitely be back & in the meantime I'm spreading the good word about the wonderful experience we had.
