Recommended by dear friends who visit the Charela Inn yearly, my wife and I just returned after a 6 day stay at this most elegantly appointed Inn. Without a doubt, the Charela Inn is located on the most gorgeous stretch of "Seven Mile Beach." Sitting under Palm trees, sipping cocktails and reading a good book is what makes this Inn... More

Their beach is one of the best on 7 mile Negril. Staff are caring and food is good. Rooms are clean and attractive. The lifeguard, Steve, is so friendly and accommodating, always asking if everything is alright. The waitresses are friendly and efficient. Thank you Alice for going the extra mile without us even asking! Thank you to the owner... More

I don't write reviews as often as I should, but my short trip to Negril and The Charela Inn has propelled me to do so. My sister and I met for my birthday weekend, leaving 2 husbands and 5 kids behind. We were looking for a beautiful spot on the beach, a place we felt safe and a nice, clean... More

I'll start by saying that we originally booked the newer, "trendy" Sandy haven Resort 2 hotels down the beach. After seeing a lot of iffy reviews the month before coming, we decided last minute to change hotels. All I can say is THANK GOODNESS!!! From the first conversation over the phone with Nadine, I knew this was going to be... More

We stayed the week of March 10-17 in Negril, at the Charela Inn. This was our second year staying there. Again, it was wonderful. Check in was easy and very efficient. Our room, a deluxe oceanfront, was perfect. Our luggage was brought up immediately so we could unpack and hit the beach. An arrival drink was waiting for us at... More

This was our first trip to Jamaica, and we fell in love! We highly recommend the Charela Inn. Without asking, we were upgraded to a Sea View Deluxe...the accommodations so beautiful and clean, the staff so polite and nice. We especially fell in love with the beach and all the palm trees for privacy and shade. We hope to come... More

My positive review starts about 5 months before I even arrived at the hotel. We had been to Charela previously (see other reviews) and I wanted to book a sea-front room. Shortly after going ahead, a job loss made booking this room too expensive so we asked to be moved to a less expensive room. The response was that they... More

I just returned from a five night stay at Charela Inn. This was my second stay at Charela Inn. I will return again in the future. It was an A-rated vacation for a variety of reasons.

I had last visited Negril in 1990 and back then I wished I had the money to stay at Charela where, at the time, I enjoyed a lovely dinner. Fast forward a quarter century and many many journeys later. We have stayed in and enjoyed some of the best hotels in the world in. And yet Charela Inn was utterly... More

I have stayed at the Charela Inn over a dozen times since 1989. Just returned for a week this February 2014. It continues to be the most beautiful space on the Negril beach. Owners Daniel (Jamaican) and Sophie (French) Grizzle and their family live in this beautiful 30+ room inn and have owned it since 1985. There's an inner courtyard... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Charela Inn the discreet charm of peace & tranquility, good company and fine food. Nothing more ... nothing less. CHARELA INN resort sits elegantly on the famous Negril Beach, by the Caribbean Sea. Its forty-seven rooms and beach stretches 250 feet in width and 150 feet in depth of pure white sand sprinkled with coconut trees to afford natural shade to our guests. Beyond the sand lies a lawn and two large patios to dine "al fresco" or simply sip cocktails while watching the sunset. All 47 rooms are built around an inner court yard in an Hacienda style with a round fresh water swimming pool in the centre of the yard, and a lush tropical garden with hibiscus, night jasmine, bougainvilleas etc. as well as many birds including our national doctor bird. The feeling is one of being far from the crowds -- yet a few steps away from the world of water sports and many attractions on the seven mile beach. All buildings are of two floors. Each room has either a private patio or a private balcony. All public access at Charela Inn are designed to accommodate the physically impaired, along with three dedicated ground floor rooms. Charela Inn is renowned for the friendliness and caring of its long standing staff, many being with the resort for over 15 years. Charel's longstanding repeat guests of many nationalities brings with them a true feeling of friendship and are cherished by both management and staff. ... more   less
