OverviewA hacienda-style hotel located on the famous Negril Beach, Charela Inn is known for its friendly staff. All rooms have air conditioning and a private balcony or patio.
We had two rooms each with 2 double beds. Very clean and spacious. The staff was great before we even arrived. They answered all my questions I had since I was nervous about my children going to a foreign place for the first time. They put all my concerns to rest. Once we arrived they were great with the kids. They answered more of my questions about excursions and sightseeing. The restaurant has a delicious breakfast. Food caters to traditional breakfasts and the local Jamaican...which I enjoyed. The price reasonable. The restaurant staff there once again treated us very well. Always asking if we needed anything. Dinner was a mix of French and Jamaican cuisine. Very tasty. The view from the restaurant looking out onto the beach....BREATHTAKING! I cannot wait to go back!
Just returned a few weeks ago from a peaceful weekend stay at Charela Hotel.Let me give my views in two categories, Good and could be improved:-GoodCharela is ideally located on the 7 mile stretch of beautiful and clean white sand beach in Negril. The rooms are pristine clean and airy as well as spacious. Lots of beach chairs and shady trees on the beach. It is a small and intimate property and near to the restaurant and bar on the property. Great local jazz band plays by the large restaurant area on Saturday nights. A good vibe!Could be improvedThe landscaping needs attention. Lawns have too many weeds and no structure to the plants, a lime tree here and a flower pot there and some awfully obstructive planter boxes (that have no plants) throughout the small parking lot that makes parking an obstacle courseThe food served at the restaurant on property needs seasoning and general improvement. We had a semosa that was tiny and square with a tiny drop of what was said to be beef. It was not a semosa (made famous by the asians) and so it should not be called by this name. The breakfast omelette was flat and tasteless and was not fluffy and the Jamaican breakfast of ackee and saltfish was just okay. The famous french bread that is reputed to be baked on property was served at room temperature and was not warmed before serving. (Yes french bread can indeed be warmed in a good commercial toaster oven) The sea food crepe also was not tasty and again was not light and fluffy but doughy.The staff were pleasant and helpful but the wait staff who was kind enough to serve breakfast on the patio left the utensils and fruit skins there until the next morning. She did clear some away but since we were not finished eating she may have forgotten to return. No big deal really!I would recommend Charela for its overall coziness and location. I rated it a 4 for these positives as the negatives can be improved.
Food was great. Great service, great beach view (restaurant on the beach). Would give it 4 1/2 stars, but couldn't find the 1/2 marker... could be the wine. House wine was very good. Nice and relaxing atmosphere.
Wonderful staff- Very Good resort-Average foodCharela has the most personable and friendly staff. Rooms are outdated but they are clean and spotless.All-Inclusive is expensive. You pay $80 extra per day per person and are subjected to a limited fixed menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner (total joke). No snacks or second portions (yes I like to eat). Food is general was home style food, nothing had the wow factor.Beach is the best.Charela is not a Couples, Sandals, or Iberostar if you want traditional All Inclusive go to one of the big resorts. Charela does provide a restful peaceful beach experience on the best stretch of 7 mile beach, you never had to play the towel game to reserve beach lounges, palm tree shaded lounges were available all day. My only regret is the All Inclusive is not a true All inclusive.
This is our third visit to Charela Inn. It may be the most charming place on Negril Beach or a least it used to be. It still has a wonderful palm covered beach and beautiful rooms, however it is in need of updating. It looks like the owners are bleeding a cash cow and need to reinvest the relatively high room rate back into one of our favorite places.
