If it weren't for the amazing staff, this review would be lower. Portia, Rachel, Delroy and everyone else was amazing. The rooms, not so much. We had ants in the room, no hot water for two days, the beds are tiny (my boyfriend and I had to sleep in separate beds) and the dogs next door as well as night club across the street make getting a good nights sleep quite difficult. We have a friend who is from Jamaica and he was not allowed on the property unless we paid a $20US fee per day. That is not the case with other hotels we looked in to. We ate at Rondel a couple times but found it quite expensive in comparison to the smaller restaurants along the beach and the restaurants and hotels in the west end blow rondel out of the water. We were also not a fan of the unnecessary wrist bands. It is not an all inclusive so it is kind of pointless. There is also a charge for wifi but it is free at the little restaurant next door. They have really awesome pistachio ice cream and the girl who is always working is very friendly. Boat bar (next door on the opposite side) has drinks for half the price and they are just as friendly as the staff at Rondel and they have live music every Friday from 2-6. great little bar. Also, Negril Sun Bar has the best lobster in Negril. Cooked over an open fire. Two whole lobsters for $20. $2 Red Stripe and free wifi. The Blue Mountain Coffee Shop has amazing breakfast and the best coffee. Toya makes ice cappuccinos that rival any I've tasted. All in all, there are better places in Negril to stay and eat.
