We stayed in Room 16, Sweet Cup, for nine nights in late February, 2020. Couples trip.
We really liked the hotel. Nice and small property but has everything you need. Pools are both small but the one across the road is better and usually quiet. It was very quiet at night in general here and we were happy we picked a room on the ocean side.
Perfect location on a great part of the beach and easy access to lots of restaurants. Our favourites were Coletta's, Best in the West, and Sweet Spot across the road, and Kuyaba and Skylark on the beach were great too. We had the best jerk pork from the guy on the beach and the second best from the interesting guys next door at Six Flags one evening.
Staff were gracious and welcoming and wonderful. We loved Donna (? I think was her name, I'm getting old!) our housekeeper and Delroy the bartender who is obviously very popular as are their thrice-weekly happy hours.
Food at the hotel restaurant was quite good if a bit pricier than other comparable places. Service was a bit hit and miss but we experienced the same almost everywhere in Negril. Just a bit slower and more indifferent than our usual experience with service in Mexico. It was really handy that there is a crosswalk right at this hotel- the only one on the main part of the strip.
Our room was spacious and had a tv with lots of cable channels and a fridge- a coffee maker would also have been nice. Bathroom was nice and big with the toilet and shower in a separate room with a door from the sink. A/C worked well. This room is not ideal if you are against walking up three flights of stairs, so be aware.
All in all Rondel was almost perfect and we would definitely stay there again!
it was our anniversary trip, when we arrived they had a sign on the bed with flowers saying Happy Anniversary that was a wonderful gesture upon our arrival. we had a nice view of the pool. the room was always cleaned and made up so nice! great maid service. the only disappointment was we had asked them to get back to us to upgrade to the beachfront villa and no one ever did! This was our second time at the Rondell Village. we enjoyed talking with duran on the beach, he always was attentive in getting our chairs or anything needed. loved the resorts happy hour Delroy was a great bartender he always took care of us & everyone who came to the bar. we enjoyed the return guest party from the owner & staff members. they are all amazing. thank you
Initially I was a little disappointed because it was small and the pools were not what I was accustomed to. However, my disappointment quickly changed to being very happy. As our room was very clean, the shower had excellent water pressure, the beach was very nice, the life guard will set up your chairs. The restaurant is ok not the best but certainly not the worst. The location is great within walking distance to several local restaurants and beach bars. The Boat Bar is right next door and has live music frequently. Staff were very professional and our housekeeper, Donna was amazing. I would stay again and this time try a villa that has a mini kitchen to save money on going out to eat. The property is well maintained with beautiful plants. One critique is walking in the sand to the restaurant and bar. During the day it is fine but a walkway for the evening would be nice.
