LOVED this place! Been to lots of places in Negril but LOVED everything about this place! Any little issues were taken care of immediately (and there really were very few issues!) Everybody that worked there seemed to enjoy their job, and I got the impression the owners, who are Jamaican, are good to work for. Good employers=happy employees! Happy to stay somewhere owned by local people! We stayed in Kiwi, which was a basic room w/ 2 double beds (comfortable!), a nice deck, very roomy, air conditioning and a mini fridge. Nicely updated rooms and the gardens surrounding the place are beautiful! Lots of birds and butterflies all around! We only went to the pool on the beach side a couple times -- who needs a pool when you have the 7 mile beach?! But it was nice to have fresh water later in the evening! Also used the hot tub which I never thought we'd use but it was nice after a rainy day snorkelling! Everything was maintained amazingly well, and I've never felt safer. Karl was the security dude on the beach for most of our days and, although I'm sure his job can be boring and monotonous at times, he did a fantastic job of making sure we were looked out for and not being harassed by some of the less awesome sellers on the beach! Having been there 10 yrs, he knew the good from the bad, was always keeping an eye out, and would step in and shoo vendors away (with a smile) when needed!! Johno was great too, though he wasn't down at the beachfront as much, moreso at the front gate. Always beach chairs pulled out for us, towels provided, and even rolled up and put under my sore foot! Karl you are a gem! Never felt like the staff were out for anything except for us having the best possible stay at Rondel. Also loved Jeffery who was always checking if all was good with us, and would have fixed anything had we not been happy! But all was good! Genuinely great staff! Lots of places to eat around there, or a short taxi ride away, but we also enjoyed breakfasts, a lunch and a dinner at the Rondel restaurant. Prices very reasonable and the food was great.
