“Great Staff, Great Location”
Reviewed 24 July 2013

I loved this place!

It's right in the center of all the nightlife activities and right on the beach.

The staff is nice and the cost is very reasonable! Loved it!

I stayed here with my friends and the security guards were even very funny and friendly. It's right across the street from The Jungle and not too far from the shopping center.

The cleaning lady also cleans very very well! The food is good too!

We return to Rondel year after year. Every year they have either added something new or improved something already there. We rented a beachfront room and a beachfront one bedroom villa. This year the beachfront room had a slightly bigger new refrigerator with a small freezer. The restaurant that is under Rondel management was excellent for breakfast, dinner and room service.

We finally ventured across the road to check out the newly finished garden side rooms. They really look nice from the outside. The pool and hottub on that side looked inviting and there was a nice new outside shower for rinsing off. We tried out the new spa. Very nice couples treatment room and staff, beautiful shower for rinsing off a treatment. My husband and daughters tried out the hot stone massages and declared them amazing! It was the first spa experience for my daughters and they went back for a second massage because they really enjoyed it.

It seems as if there are more guests discovering Rondel, we were sure to reserve our rooms on the spot for next summer. The wifi worked great, even on the beach. I even got a chance to try out the hammock on the porch of the one bedroom villa while my daughter used the spa off the bedroom. I can see why she spends half the day in that hammock, it even has a bit of a sea view!

No Rondel review would be complete without mentioning their friendly, hardworking staff. Johnno, Carl, Marlin and Dean are just a few of the faces we love returning to year after year. We miss you
already!

I can only think of two things that would be nice to see next year. A small coffee maker in the non Villa rooms, and a better spot for the television in the beachfront villa. The tv is on a shelf in the cabinet that holds the Murphy bed so you cannot lay in bed and watch that tv. Hanging it from the wall like in the bedroom would make it more convenient for the Murphy bed occupant. Not really a complaint, but a suggestion. We always love returning here.

There were plenty of lounges and towels, the buoys and lines that mark off the water for swimming are stubbed twice a week and the water is crystal clear and beautiful!

There are a lot of nice things to say about this hotel:
great staff,
great guests,
good food at very good prices,
great bar,
and a great bartender.

We rented the Lime Villa - a large one bedroom villa. The furniture in the living room was moldy and dirty, luckily, one of the wonderful staff members, Deane, scrubbed the furniture and floors with bleach - which helped a great deal. The bathrooms were tiny and needed updating, as did the rest of the villa - we never felt quite clean there. I hear the rooms across the road are great - they are brand new.

The reason why we won't stay here again has more to do with the property - the beach. They have gated their beach so that there is only a tiny strip of sand, the rest of the sand is inside the gate. If you are a beach person, such as we are, we like to be on the beach all day. Because there is only a strip of sand with no trees, you are basically in the hot sun all day, they do not have beach umbrellas or cabanas, or huts that are built on the beach to create shade, therefore, we only could spend very little time on the beach before there was no shade and we were baking. Other guests sat at the bar area, but it's not the same. Other hotels offer shaded areas so that you can stay out on the beach all day. Because we go to Jamaica for the 7 mile beach, we would not stay here again.

Again, the staff was great - they were kind and welcoming. The price was right but the old saying..you get what you pay for..very true.

Room Tip: It's up to you whether you want location or a modern room.

Girls trip to celebrate my birthday. We loved the staff, location, rooms. Convenient to other restaurants, craft market. We did not eat lunch or dinner at the hotel, but the breakfast was excellent. The drinks were also delicious. Looking forward to returning next year.

I must say I had an awesome time at Rondel Village. Kudos go out to Racquel, Chantal, Delroy and Carl. They made our experience awesome. Also if you just want to relax at your hotel the food is awesome at the hotel...we often ate breakfast, lunch and dinner right at the bar for a very reasonable price. I will definitely be returning back for my vacation.

I just left RV on July 5th...Stayed for 8 days and 7 nights. It was a girls trip to remember...The staff were very friendly and fun to be around. Rachel, Delroy,Shantel and Carl put up with us laughing all day and making difficult visitor request. They kept a smile and made our trip all the better. Came to Jamaica to relax and that is just what happened. Rachel put up with our request for fresh brewed Blue Mountain coffee everyday, Delroy and Shantel kept up with our many drink request and well Carl, just made our day by smiling and being sure we had our chairs and towels if needed... I appreciated the staff making us feel at home!! The front desk ladies were always friendly and greeted us with smile. Securtiy was a plus.
We will be back soon to visit...The two Yolanda's really enjoyed our stay in Melon and SweetSop which are great rooms !!! Until next time, we hope everyone is well...

Room Tip: the two beachfront rooms with a view are great, ask for Melon or Sweetsop
