Reviewed 12 July 2009

After doing countless research online and reading mixed reviews, we decided not to book in advance, but rock up and check out the place first.

The receptionist was very accommodating and showed us two rooms and in less than 10 minutes, we'd checked in and grabbed bags from car.

Rooms were great. Ours had two double beds, AC, decent size bathroom, cable TV and a fridge. In addition to this, room had a small balcony with patio furniture and overlooked the pool.

Free wireless Internet access. Free parking.

Clean, comfortable hotel in a great location.

Beach just across the road, with some fantastic beach bars and restaurants.

An enjoyable stay, would definitely recommend to others.

Well what can i say.......

Me and Debs had been looking at the Rayon for a long time..and had actually looked at staying here at New Year but got waylaid...and ended up elewhere......as you do.....lol

This is a fairly...new Hotel ..about 7 /8 years old?..on the morass side of Manley .(the beach rd)

Most of the rooms rotate around the pool but there are some blocks of apartments at the back of the Hotel.we got a great late deal on a 2 bedroomed apt with 2 bathrooms and kitchen....great porch at the back...bottom level..overlookin the pool.....

We LOVED it...

All the rooms were spotlessly clean and huge ....mine had a walk -in wardrobe...Debs had a massive free standing wardrobe......both rooms were furnished with dark wood furniture and floral patterned bedding/curtains etc..it also had a big kitchen..which did not have much in the way of pots ,pans or utensils...but a call to the reception soon rectified this....also an iron was requested and it was on our step a few minutes after asking for it...excellent service........

Pansy,the owner, greeted us upon arrival and although we did not chat to her a lot during our time there.....she is on the property daily....and I did see her most days chatting to guests.....

Staff are friendly and the gardener seems to be tending to he plants etc ..all the time......they always looked busy...


I just loved this Hotel...it's in a ideal place for all the action on the Beach Rd........and opposite our favourite beach bar.... Sunbeach.....


We only ate in the restaurant at rayon a few times..breakfast..it was always nice.....the restaurant is at upper level..so a nice breeze blows through...really nice furniture in here....comfy chairs......

This hotel has a relaxed laid back feel although security was always present and vigilant....we always felt safe........

iI has a function room ,so would be ideal for weddings,a gym,free internet access(in restaurant).

Ohhh yes and a beauty treament room


I would have no hesitation recommending this Hotel too anyone..ln fact I already have

Myself and Debbie will back back sooner than they think!!!!

This was my second stay at the Rayon with many more to come. Ms. Pansy and her staff are top notch and will cater to whatever it is you need. Our flight arrived early so we go to Rayon much earlier than expected. Well the Rayon staff was husslin and busslin to get our rooms ready. I told them not to rush, we are back in Jamaica and just happy to be here. Our rooms were ready in less than 15 minutes!!

I only ate breakfast there but it was very good and the service was excellent...love that Jamaican orange juice!!

The rooms are very roomy with plenty of closet space, but I would suggest bringing some extra hangers if you are a person that like to hang up clothes. There is plenty of counter space in the bathroom and plenty of storage in the dresser. The rooms by the pool have the larger balconies, but the view from the rooms in the back can not be beat.

You are in walking distance from just about any and everything. And just a 1 minute walk to the beach across the street. The folks at Sunbeach Bar and Restaurant will take real good care of you and you can just pull up a chair or lounger and relax all day.

Rayon is a beautiful hotel and at a good price...check it out!!

We have stayed with Pansy and staff at least once or twice a year since they opened.....TRUST ME there is not a better place to relax and enjoy Negril like the Rayon.....Service second to none ....clean....friendly......great location.....great food....I would never even consider any other place in Negril after finding the Rayon.....and we are not the only ones....every year we meet up with many that have returned for another stay....that says it all folks.....we are already booked for next year and cannot wait....if you are going to Negril....call and visit with Pansy....she will accomadate almost any request.....if you are already booked into a different place....take an hour or so and visit the Rayon while you are there.....you will see what I mean.......Mike

Just returned from 11 days at the Rayon Hotel. I travelled with 2 girlfriends that had never been to Jamaica (this was my 14th trip). The Rayon is located directly across the road from the beach so when you want to mingle with the locals and tourists, do some shopping, or walk the beach for a while, it is right there.
If you want some quiet time, just park your butt at the Rayon hotel. The property is small in size but big on character and charm. I spent many hours just chillin by the pool, admiring the folliage that surrounded me - the birds singing in the trees, music wafting in from the street and the friendly conversations from the staff and other guests. You really feel like you are at home when you stay at the Rayon.
No matter what type of vacation you are looking for, you can not go wrong with the Rayon. It is great for families, singles, couples, and groups. The hotel is quiet in the evenings so you are not disturbed for a great nights sleep.
If you are looking for nightlife - there is always something within walking distance. Bourbon Beach, Alfred's, the Jungle night club, Roots Bamboo. When you are out on the beach or road watch for signage as to where the party is for that night (or upcoming nights)
Stay at the Rayon - you will not be disappointed

We really enjoyed our stay at the Rayon and would go back for sure. The front desk staff was very friendly and accomodating. I arrived early and was allowed to check in, which was great since I needed to rest. Pansy was there to greet me and knew my name before I said who I was. The room was so comfortable. We a nice balcony that overlooked the pool. Our four post bed (upgraded for free) had crisp white sheets everyday and was very comfy. The bathroom was spacious and always clean. The only drawback were ants in the bathroom. We called the front desk and they came promptly with a can of spray. Out room had AC but we never used it, just turned on the ceiling fan and left the windows open. The pool was nice and a great place to relax in the evening. Right across the road from the beach, its a good value and location.

Pansy met us the evening we arrived was and is a very graciuos lady. She trains her staff well and is very invovled in every aspect of her hotel. The rooms were great but next time we go would like one on 2 floor so we can have a balcony. Other than that I highly recommend the Ra Yon to anyone .Ya Mon
