“Jamaica at its Best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2011

I had not been to Jamaica for more than 10 years and was hesitant to return after hearing many negative comments. At Round Hill, it was still as lovely and relaxing as I remembered it. Round Hill is a special resort that retains the feeling of an unspoiled Caribbean island. Rooms and cottages are tastefully decorated with understated elegence. The beach and infinity pool are great places to swim, work on a tan and take in the beautiful views of the hillside property. Service is amazing and the staff knows your name early in your stay. The tennis is great and golf courses are nearby. The food was fresh and delicious and wonderfully prepared. Dining on a lovely outdoor terrace by the sea makes it a perfect dining experience. Round Hill is great for couples and families alike. My friend and I cannot wait to return.

Room Tip: rooms on 1st lvl of Pineapple House have terraces

Round Hill is a beautiful property. The staff is friendly, welcoming, hospitable, and they truly will remember you if you go back! The food is amazing as well. Everything about this place is outstanding, and it really is my favorite place in the world.

Quick trip from the airport. The grounds are beautiful, the staff is friendly (but slow), the beach is average, the food is above average (but way over-priced). I would actually return if not for the loud reggae music that blared from across the bay every night until 3 in the morning. I understand that this is not the fault of the hotel, but we had to resort to wearing headphones/closing the windows to fall asleep at night.

RoundHillTA, Manager at Round Hill Hotel & Villas, responded to this review, 3 June 2011
Thank you for your review on Trip Advisor and we're pleased to hear that you would be looking to return. With regards to the music that you heard, that is a very unusual occurrence as Round Hill is always a very quiet place at night. We believe it might have been associated with the national Jamaican Labor Day holiday and celebrations in the local community; please know that we have been in touch with local authorities to advise them of your experience and to ensure that this is better managed in the local community in the future. We all hope to see you again at Round Hill soon.

We recently had the pleasure of visiting Round Hill for the first time. The 8 day experience exceeded our expectations resulting in our planning a return visit in the near future. We loved the relatively small property and private beach setting with facilities that exuded tradition and featured exceptional dining and service. The staff was simply the best. We loved their warm and friendly nature, their beautiful smiles and their crisp and fresh appearance. The facilities were ideal for relaxation including the pools, the beach, the spa, the various bars and the dining venues. We felt safe and secure throughout our stay. We are already planning a return visit.

This is one of the most idyllic places in the Caribbean. It is peaceful, placid and serene and a perfect place to relax and rejuvenate. The staff are the friendliest and happiest people one could ever meet and make each guest feel special. The food is out of this world and the service is super. The rooms are fresh, bright and airy and I slept like a log. And best of all it is fun too!!!!

We stayed for one week out of our two weeks in Montego Bay and we wish it could have been much longer. This resort lives up to its image and its marketing as a truly amazing experience.
The staff and service are phenomenal. The staff take an interest in getting to know you, and as we found out, quite a few guests have returned there over many years and the atmosphere is very personal, very family-like. We were there the second week of May, during the slow season, and at times it felt like we had the place to ourselves. It was the ultimate in relaxation and spoiling oneself, no question. We had a lovely suite in the Pineapple House and had the opportunity to tour a few of the privately-owned villas, which we would love to book for a return trip with family. The food is fantastic. A genuinely awesome experience is the half-day massage and lunch at the spa in the garden loft with a view of the bay...it was recommended to us by fellow guests and it is pampering galore, and in the most unobtrusive way you can imagine, it's incredible.
About the only aspect we struggled with is the 18% gratuity automatically added to every food and beverage bill. That was the only aspect spoiling a perfect rating on the "value" scale above. As we said, the service and staff are phenomenal, it's just that when something like that is added automatically, one never knows if the gratuity goes to the right people, and it was even added to the "cold" option on the breakfast buffet (which makes little sense). We suggest there is a better way, especially for such a venerable and elegant resort, and that is to leave the matter of the gratuity to the guest to decide.
The beach area is lovely, nice and secluded, and well-maintained. The cocktail lounge, with its pictures of historic figures who have visited the resort over the last 50+ years is inviting. Take the opportunity to have high tea there one afternoon. The infinity pool is a fantastic spot from which to sunset-watch and the chairs there are so comfortable, you won't want to leave.
The atmosphere and ambiance are gorgeous. We jokingly came to the conclusion, talking with fellow guests, that the scratch marks you see on the way out are from our fingernails...as we all would have to be forcibly dragged away from such a wonderful place!

In October of 2010 my now husband and I were married at Round Hill. Staff was great, food was wonderful, rooms and grounds were beautiful, spa was wonderful and I did NOT want to leave! My mother who attended the wedding is disabled and the staff was more than accommodating in regards to her room being located on the lower level and help to and from the pool or beach. My father who hates to travel can not wait to go back. It was perfect! Rochelle the wedding planner was great as well!
