We have been coming to Charela for over 25 years and have been there at Christmas for the past 7 years. The hotel is a charming inn in the middle of the nicest stretch of beach in Negril. The wide expanse of beach in front of the hotel lets you have a nice spot under the palm trees without being crowded.
Don't go to Charela expecting 5 star luxury. What you will find is one of the most picturesque spots in the Carribean. The staff is incredibly friendly and have been there for years. Go for the beachfront units and have a wonderful view from the balcony or first floor patio; all at an affordable price. There are 3 deluxe rooms look over the outdoor restaurant and the beach. Although these rooms have the nicest bathrooms, I find they can be noisy and prefer the rooms away from the bar and restaurant.
The restaurant has great food. Service, like most places in Jamaica, can be slow. On many nights, Charela has musical entertainment for your dining under the stars.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Charela Inn the discreet charm of peace & tranquility, good company and fine food. Nothing more ... Nothing less. CHARELA INN resort sits elegantly on the famous Negril Beach, by the Caribbean Sea. Its fifty rooms and beach stretches 250 feet in width and 150 feet in depth of pure white sand sprinkled with coconut trees to afford natural shade to our guests. Beyond the sand lies a lawn and two large patios to dine "Al fresco" or simply sip cocktails while watching the sunset. All 47 rooms are built around an inner court yard in an Hacienda style with a round fresh water swimming pool in the centre of the yard, and a lush tropical garden with hibiscus, night jasmine, bougainvilleas etc. As well as many birds including our national doctor bird. The feeling is one of being far from the crowds -- yet a few steps away from the world of water sports and many attractions on the seven mile beach. All buildings are of two floors. Each room has either a private patio or a private balcony. All public access at Charela Inn are designed to accommodate the physically impaired, along with three dedicated ground floor rooms. Charela Inn is renowned for the friendliness and caring of its long standing staff, many being with the resort for over 15 years. Charel's longstanding repeat guests of many nationalities brings with them a true feeling of friendship and are cherished by both management and staff. ... more less
