- What's Included
OverviewLocated on Negril's Seven Mile Beach, approximately 75 km from the Montego Bay airport.
I frequent Negril often and have stayed in many hotels on 7-Mile beach this is my 2nd time at Rondel Village the first time I stayed on the beach side and this time I stayed on the garden side which is across the road from the beach a quick skip, hop and a jump and you're on the beach, both sides are lovely... but if you don't want to bother crossing the road to the beach then the garden side is not for you. They also have guards to help you cross the streets as the road can get busy. Pros:1. Room was clean, spacious with a king size bed, refrigerator, great a/c, ceiling fan, cd player, chairs and table on the balcony with a view of the gardens and the top of a few bldgs lol but very quiet! OH and they didn't have any dressers for your clothes just a few shelves in the closet and the bathroom so yes I lived out my suitcase didn't have much space for my stuff! Housekeeping was fabulous I actually smelled bleach when she was done cleaning my room which made me really happy I felt a sense of real cleaning was done! (It's the little things that makes me happy)Also, I read some reviews that people were complaining about hearing the music at Jungle night club which is not far from the hotel, but I didn't hear a thing it was peaceful for me2. Great location on the beach walking distance to many restaurants, convenience stores and nightly entertainment at other bars/restaurants in the area3. Rondel also had nightly entertainment but I didn't attend any of them only because I had other plans4. Breakfast was great every morning and room service for lunch/dinner always hit the spot on my lazy days!Cons1. I was very irritable about the $3 a day charges for a coffee pot or safe added to your room ..Now, it would make life so much easier if they went on and included the coffee pot and safe in your room as most people want these things and wouldn't mind paying for them just add it to the overall hotel charge already I'm sure no one would notice!And then there's the $20 charge for a visitor what is the point of this? It's not like they get meals or drinks for the $20 if they just want to sit out on the beach with you or on your balcony you as the guest has to cough up $20/daily...ridiculous! I felt bad because when me and my g/f would hang out and I need to stop at my room to grab something she had to wait at the security booth because I didn't pay $20 to add her as a visitor although she would be there for a hot second! Major issue.3. NO Umbrellas on the beach and it gets extremely hot with the sun beaming on your forehead...this is a very nice hotel why did you stop at the Umbrellas, can you invest in some umbrellas already! Folks were scrounging for shade! lol4. Both sides had small pools that didn't look inviting at all that's all I'll say about that.Staff - was great front desk very inviting, housekeeping old skool cleaning, lifeguards were great kept the hagglers away, security crossing was johnny on the spot as well as the bartenders and wait-staff cant say enough about them all!
Rondel Village is a very good hotel to stay at. We stayed on the gardenside in Seagrape room. The rooms are big with big comfy bed. Good size and nice bathroom. Big balcony with table and chairs. Tv with lots of channels and fridge with freezer. The staff are all very friendly and serviceminded. Good food at restaurant and really fast service. We certainly will stay here again next time we visit Jamaica. Elisabet and Conny from sweden.
This is a great place to stay. The staff are friendly and very out going. We had a bad storm that brought in a ton of seaweed and they were the only resort that made a big effort to remove it. Would definitely stay here again!!! It would be nice to have a coffee maker in the room without paying for it!
Very nice hotel. Clean and good service. Especially securitymans and bartenders. Very good location and beach is absolutely amazing. Food in restaurant mostly good. We stay in Rondel 2 weeks and we recommended it for every one. And we absolutely want to go back some day.
I go to Negril several times every year and have stayed at many of the hotels along the beach. I just returned from my stay at Rondel Village. Although my room was a decent size and was clean, there were very specific things that were deal-breakers for me. For starters, you are required to wear a wrist band. This alone would be a reason for me to never stay at this hotel again. That might sound really picky, but those things are SUPER annoying and uncomfortable. I asked the front desk person if I could simply attach the bracelet to my room key, which was on a stretchy key chain. They refused and would not compromise on another solution. STRIKE ONE, not even at the property for 3 minutes. Second deal breaker: They ask you to turn the air conditioning and lights off every time you leave the room. This means, when you come back to your nice, clean room after housekeeping has been there, you are left to swelter in the heat until the room cools down again. Totally annoying. Strike 3: You have to pay a #20 guest fee just to have people over. In my case, I wanted to have a friend come to my hotel to hang on the beach and eat lunch at the restaurant. Ridiculous to have to pay $20 bucks for that when I'm bringing additional business into the hotel! Strike 4: The beach sucks. If you're not a beach person, this is not big deal, but if you live for the beach like I do...trust me, you'll be MAJORLY disappointed as the majority of the "beach" is behind a wall. A few other random things... they seem really put out when we requested additional towels for the room. 2 small towels for 2 girls with long hair just doesn't cut it. There is also no space in the bathroom to set out makeup, etc. They have a tiny pedestal sink and a corner cabinet (we were in a supeior room) which had storage underneath but the top surface was small and oddly shaped (like a pizza wedge) They also charge you $3 a day for a lock for the room safe. Lastly, the building are SUPER close together, much closer than they appear in pictures, and the pool on the beach side is terrible -- completely covered in shade and has almost no pool "deck" (with the exception of about an 8'x10" little corner where there were 2 lounge chairs. Definitely wouldn't stay here again.
