“Perfect Setting for a Destination Wedding”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

My friends were married at Round Hill over Memorial weekend. This was the perfect setting for our group of friends to celebrate. From the accommodations to the setting, this resort is awesome. We were well taken care of throughout the trip. It's also nice that this resort is on the smaller side so it felt intimate and not overwhelming or contrived. I hope to return to this beautiful place very soon!

Room Tip: If you're with a group, Villa #16 is amazing!

I was there for a wedding and just absolutely loved my time there. The service was impeccable, the staff was friendly, the food was delicious. I couldn't have asked for a better accommodation. Also, make sure you try the spa. The massages they offered were lovely.

My husband and I had the special pleasure of staying at Round Hill in April with my Book Club. We had our own villa and it was just perfect. How amazing to have breakfast prepared for you in the adjacent kitchen that you share with only one other villa. And served to you on your private flower-adorned terrace overlooking your very own pool and hot tub [well, almost your very own; it is also for the guests of the adjacent villa], and of course the blue, blue sea. But that's only the start, because everything from the friendly and skillful staff (special shout out to Claudine at the reception desk) to the food to the services, the infinity pool, and the setting itself--all were spectacular. Nothing flashy, which also makes it special; it is an understated elegance. We'd recommend Round Hill to anyone looking for an experience that is simply the best.

Myself and my girlfriend just spent a weekend up in Round Hill and we both agreed that it is by far the most enjoyable weekend break we've taken in ages. It's small enough to ensure you are truly made welcome, with that they make you feel right at home.

The staff were very attentive and whilst we were thinking we could do with some ice for our room, the phone rang to extend a courtesy call to see that we had everything we needed. It was this level of service and attention to detail that made us feel that we will need to revisit this unforgettable resort.

Round Hill is an absolutely fabulous property. Having stayed at many locations around the Caribbean, this is certainly one of the best and most luxurious. The food is fantastic, much of it home-grown on site in the organic garden. The chef and restaurant manager are passionate about good food and are a wealth of knowledge. I'm a big fan of low-food miles. The location is second to none, with beautiful interior decor by Ralph Lauren and the grounds are stunning. I found the staff to be extremely helpful. I could not recommend the hotel highly enough. I will definitely be returning. Thank you Round Hill for such a great stay!

What an incredible place to stay if relaxation and beautiful views is your cup of tea (which is also served daily at 4pm w/snacks, free). Talk about peaceful relaxation on a amazingly lush property, with a gorgeous coastline that tops any resort/hotel I have been.

The beach itself is wonderful, with almond trees proving natural shade throughout; as well as wonderful sand and concrete/stone platform decks, and bars on both ends (at at one end was the infinity pool). There is also a path leading away from the beach, along the coast to the spa, which has a great grass lawn with areas to sit, including a nice hammock, all away from it all - a great, scenic walk. There were times when we just looked at each other incredulously that it was so "unbusy" - no fighting for beach chairs at this place, or loud people. We enjoyed just reading, taking dips in the glorious ocean and the sheer joy of peace and beauty that surrounded us.

We had a wonderful shared villa with semi-private pool, which we enjoyed swimming in day and night (especially late, under the moon and stars). We had breakfast prepared at the villa each morning ($25 + tax + service charge per person) and it was a real treat to eat on our beautiful outdoor living space. We ordered room service too for dinner often - just a pleasure (small room service menu, but we heard from someone on the last day that you can order off the regular restaurant menu too). The ladies were great as they met our needs.

Speaking of the staff, as a whole, the group is very professional. I would like to thank Dave Hamilton for showing us around the property - what a great experience to see all the different flora and gardens, as well as some of the villas - just awesome.

The food was very good - nothing great per se, but overall it did the trick. Just be mindful that the food comes with 10% tax plus a 18% service charge (which they combine together without saying the percent on the bill/charge - but it does say it on some of the menus, not all) - and they leave a space for tips (which is not obligated). I did not realize this until a couple of days in, so some got some real good tips! The resort itself charges the same 10% tax and a 15% service charge per night - something else to consider.

With that being said, we look forward to coming back here again for another awesome experience. We met many people who have been to the resort many times and they just rave about it, and we now know why - we're ravers, too! Thank you Round Hill - it was so pleasurable! See you again!

This was our second visit to Round Hill in the past year and we hope to keep the annual (if not semi-annual) tradition alive for years to come. I will start this by saying that I've been to countless Caribbean islands and many top resorts in Anguilla, St. Barth, St. Martin, Bahamas, St. Thomas, Aruba and Jamaica of course. My husband and I came to Jamaica last May to decide whether we wanted to have our destination wedding at one of the Montego Bay resorts. My fiance was skeptical of the island as he had never visited Jamaica and he quickly became enchanted by the people, its customs and general relaxed attitude and atmosphere. We visited several resorts in the area and Round Hill was hands down the perfect place in all of the Caribbean to host our wedding.

Round Hill is a truly special place. It is a chic hideaway with amenities and services for the most discerning clientele in a breathtaking setting with unparalleled sunsets and ocean vistas. Round Hill is for people who enjoy peaceful and stress free getaways - the hotel's traditions, setting and staff truly enchant the whole experience. This is a different kind of property than most. It is small, quaint and full of history. Round Hill is NOT for people who need to be constantly entertained or who prefer 'mega resorts'. The staff here will all smile and say hello and will most likely address you by name by the end of your first day. Once a week, the manager, Josef Forstmayr, hosts a lovely beachside cocktail party where you can meet and mingle with the other guests. Every day, the hotel hosts afternoon tea and serves finger sandwiches, delicious cookies and the best Jamaican Blue coffee around (there is tea as well, of course...) It is great to sit at one of the beach bars (Stewart's or Larry's) and talk with fellow travelers, enjoy a delicious island beverage (or two or three) and watch the calm waters of the cove beach.

We had 45 guests attend our wedding in May and we took up more than half of the pineapple house and an entire villa. Everyone had a fantastic time and many of our guests plan to return again. Racquel Bernard was a true professional and orchestrated every detail of our wedding without a hitch. The best part about this setup was that there are minimal decisions to make on the details which was incredibly helpful as I was planning this from afar. You have one fantastic florist / decor specialist, one or two bands / DJ's and Racquel will work with you to put together whatever your 'vision' is. Pace band was incredible and kept us up dancing the entire night. I can't recommend this property enough whether it is for a family vacation, couples getaway or destination event.

Room Tip: The coqui frogs can be loud at night so bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper!
