- What's Included
OverviewLocated on Negril's Seven Mile Beach, approximately 75 km from the Montego Bay airport.
Well ..We booked a room here for 12 nights from Dec 26th.. For two, King Bed, Garden Side. When we arrived after 15 hours of Flying... We were taken to our room which we found to be unsuitable.. ( Front door did not lock properly ) I went to the office to ask for another room.. They told me they only had a room on the Beachside and that we would have to pay to Upgrade!! Well after some negotiation .. I paid $300 US. We were given the new room . It was So.. small with a Queensize bed ! And obviously had not been cleaned in quite some time ( Dead Bugs on bathroom floor.. Old Bedding, Dirty flooring). I think this was there vacant spare room they had.. It was also too late for Housekeeping to clean.. Also had their Maint. Man fix bathroom sink, Ceiling Fan also had a Problem that he could not fix..After us resting that first night they cleaned the next morning.. We were not comfortable in that room as it was so Small.. At that time I asked if they had another room for us .. I was told that to get another room we would have to be charged to upgrade.. Well at that point we decided just to accept the room we were in.. We were not Happy with this.. To move Hotels is a Huge inconvenience as you can imagine.. Also this Hotel is non-refundable.. And the original cost of the Hotel was significant not Cheap.. In conclusion..I also want to say our room was next to the Office on the Street.. Lots of Noise.. So much for the Upgrade !! Rondel !! I do think as a Paying Guest.. we should have been accommodated better.. Also just want to say that over the years we have stayed a many Hotels in Negril.. With much better Service. Also the cost we incurred to stay here was not Cheap.. Will not stay at Rondel again.. Poor customer service in the Office... Slow Service.. at the restaurant ... FYI.. Huge Nightclub right next door.. Music most of the Night .. Bring Ear Plugs.. Hope this Helps !!
My wife and I (we're in our 60s) just got back from 8 nights at Rondell Village. There was almost nothing that we did no like about our stay there: Large room and bath; All very clean; Attentive and friendly staff; Right on the beach, Good restaurant. We purposely never turned on the TV so I can't comment on that, but it was a decent sized flat screen. The room had a decent safe, the A/C and overhead fan worked very well, and the thick windows blocked any night-time music when we wanted to sleep. There were reading lamps on night tables on both sides!Th two minor changes we'd like to see are: 1) They have no beach umbrellas and the tree shade is fairly modesty. 2) The beach chairs all have a support bar under the webbing that catches you right where your butt goes.Other than that, the beach is spectacular, the water delicious, the people friendly (even the hawkers) and you can chill out thoroughly whether your pleasure is liquid, herbal or just plain snoozing. It is priced affordably and is a great spot for seniors not wanting a lot of hubbub and also for young families. If you want the "all-inclusive" and "let's get drunk and stay drunk" experience that many American tourists seem to crave, this is not your best bet. We will certainly return to Rondell Village whenever we return to Negril!
The family-run business was very friendly. Everyone was so very nice and helpful. They went out of their way to make sure we had transport to restaurants, atm, etc. The restaurant had some of the best food in the area. Great place for family with outdoor pool, jacuzzi and magnificent white beach. The water was very shallow for yards and yards which is great for kids and insecure swimmers. 24 hour security made us feel safe. The guards not only check the grounds but also a dedicated guard would look after your things at the beach lounge chaises. Everyone went out of their way to make our visit enjoyable. Really nice staff. Don't forget to check out the spa. I had a wonderful massage by Sheniqua?
I chose Rondel Village 9 months before our planned wedding date. I'd never seen it before and all I had to go on were photos and reviews on the internet. I emailed the hotel - and they were helpful, amenable and professional - everything that I was looking for! They gave me great confidence that we had chosen the right place. All emails were responded to promptly and answered fully.On the day of arrival - our flight was delayed. The taxi we organised via the hotel was aware and ready when we arrived. Security at the hotel was ready to greet us and fully briefed on who we were and where we would be stying - we felt at home as soon as we arrived! EVERY member of staff we met were helpful and happy!The wedding day arrived and it was all taken care of by the hotel - so much so I was banned from seeing it early and spoiling the surprise! And it was a LOVELY surprise! All the details we discussed on what would make i special for me were incorporated - we REALLY couldn't have asked for anything more. Even though it rained JUST as we were about to start the ceremony and we had to wait for 15 minutes for it to pass (but apparently if it rains on your wedding day it is a blessing!) it couldn't have been any better. I will say to sort out the music you want to take on a CD in American Format - or it could be a slight issue - but that is my harshest comment! Ceremony over and pictures were taken by Forrester Gayle (see separate review) and everything went smoothly.There are so many little details that I could gush about - and I can think of very little negative stuuf.Other commenters were put off by the security presence - but I was really heartened to see that they were there to look out for your best interests! Some of the locals can be slightly over exuberant in their approach! I loved Rondel, the On bedroom villa was fantastic and all the staff were great. Special thanks to Carolyn and Celina - who really had everything and eaveryone working like a well oiled machine to make our stay memorable! So memorable that I could re-live it every day! (and have done for the past year!)After we left and we were waiting for our wedding Certificates - they got lost in the post and returened to Rondel, who then offered me a Courier delivery at extra cost - If i had been offered this orringinally - I would have taken that option straight away and not waited on snail - mail. That is probably the only improvement I would have made to the whole process. But thanks again, keep doing what you're doing - it was great!!
I stayed here for 5 days for the 2nd time and it was better than the first time. The first time I stayed on the garden side - this time I stayed on the beach side. Excellent view of the sea from my room. It was a great sight to wake up to.I'm a vegan and was able to find an excellent restaurant a short walk down the beach. You can find just about anything you want on Seven Mile Beach. There are many restaurants, bars and amenities to choose from on the beach. The only time I left the area was to visit the cliff side of Negril.I would definitely stay at Rondel Village again. It is a quiet, peaceful property and the staff are very friendly and helpful.
