- What's Included
OverviewLocated on Negril's Seven Mile Beach, approximately 75 km from the Montego Bay airport.
Rondell Village is in a great location on the Negril strip and the beach is perfect. Stayed here for easter with my family (9 adults and 2 children) We stayed in the 3 bedroom villa which was great because it includes a full kitchen and a private hot tub. We cooked breakfast at the villa and either ate lunch at the beach bar or has lunch cooked by the staff provided. Food was okay but we preferred to eat outside the hotel. Pros- Amazing beach - crystal clear water and very calm and shallow so it is perfect for the kids. - Included in the price is a cook to prepare one meal a day (we used her for lunch).- Rooms were clean but bed a bit hard. - Master bathroom had a back door that opened right out to the rooms private hot tub.- AC in kitchen / living area made cooking breakfast in the heat easier. - Hotel provided ice to fill our coolers to go to the beach.- Good service - courteous staff. Cons-Older property with old school furnishing.- Pool is small and tucked in-between the rooms with no pool deck to lay out really (Minor issue with such an amazing beach)-
I am a 53 year old widow well traveled throughout all of Jamaica. This was my first solo trip after visiting Jamaica over a dozen times with 'mi first usban', my late husband (as a couple and then with our daughter), with my daughter alone, with friends and with my daughter and her boyfriend for their high school graduation. I am not the all-inclusive type (though I've done it) and have stayed at half a dozen Negril Beach hotels. Rondel Village is almost everything any type of traveler would want from a solo visitor to a group unless you cannot live without a swim-up bar! I intend to return, perhaps with a group to enjoy their 3 bedroom villas with a cook to make delicious Jamaican dinners! My one bedroom standard (beachside) room was large, had a modern fridge, flat screen TV, comfy leather(ette) recliner, lovely shaded balcony and was right next to a small but refreshing pool. The a/c worked perfectly, something not always found at other hotels in Jamaica and there was plenty of hot water. My room was IMMACULATE! I didn't see a single little bug all week (and I had some food and drinks in my room). I always found a shady lounge along the beach, the restaurant had a good selection of Jamaican and American dishes at reasonable prices, and while I'm not a big drinker, I appreciated my drinks made with REAL fruit. The best thing was I felt SAFE. Derek, the lifeguard (and sometimes security at the gate) was WONDERFUL, holding onto guest personal items or locking them up while swimming or taking a beach walk. He made sure people selling stuff along the beach were not too intrusive and seemed to keep track of everything. Dining room, reception staff and bartenders were equally wonderful. Every guest, from another single woman, a bachellorette group of young women, a retired group of couples in a 3 bedroom villa, and a newlywed couple were delighted! I met guests from Germany, Belarus, other Jamaicans, Canadians, Americans...the world! My ONLY complaint would be the rock hard bed which meant waking up every morning with a bad back. Stretching, swimming, the recliner in my room and massage helped but I sure wish hotels had memory foam toppers and better mattresses; but this is my complaint even at high end hotels in the states. I booked half my trip through Booking.com and half directly through Rondel Village. Same rate with less confusion going through the hotel. I have stayed at 6 different beach hotels in Negril and Rondel Village, along with perhaps one other if I knew I wouldn't wake up with a sore back, would be my top choice. Loved it so much I tried to extend my stay but airline wouldn't cooperate! Rondel Village definitely felt like HOME.
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!
