I absolutely loved this hotel! It had the best beach property among the other hotels we passed by. The rooms were very charming, the food was ok but there are plenty of other places to go along the beach. I can't say enough about the sunsets, you just have to be there to see and the beach was absolutely beautiful!.... More

I give the Charela Inn an above average because of the beach and the breakfasts. There used to be a catamaran trip for the guests but this has been discontinued. If you want to see the beach, you must be upstairs. I would recommend the two places next door: Idle A While and CocoLaPalm. Breakfast is better at CocoLaPalm and... More

We stayed at the Charela Inn for the first time and found it a small but charming hotel with a very personalized atmosphere. The staff did their utmost to make our stay a pleasant one. The beach with its palm trees is beautiful and relaxing. The evening meals are delicious. They also have very good entertainment two nights per week.... More

This is our second visit to Charela Inn. They are our family away from home. This trip was very different though. For one thing, it was full...full of smokers(except for 20 or 30 americans, and none of us smoked). Italy..oh a beautiful place...BUT..a place where the hazards of smoking have not played an important part of their society..as of yet.... More

We had a great time at the Charela Inn. The accommodations were comfortable. The only down side was the low water pressure in the shower. The food was good. The beach is gorgeous, with smooth white sand and turquoise/green/blue water. The beach attendant was always attentive with enough beach chairs and a fresh supply of beach towels. The entire staff...

We had our wedding and honeymoon at the Charela early August 2005 and had a fantastic time. Previously we read all the reviews comments and criticisms and had a pretty good idea about the place. Mainly, it is not a richy rich kind of place. If you want luxury this place is not for you but the rustic,simpleand comfortable charm... More

We changed locations from the cliffs to Charela Inn on Saturday October 15, 2005, and stayed for 3 nights. Everthing was great from the nice clean garden view room to the fantastic food that we had every meal. We ate all our meals here. The employees are very warm and friendly. My wife and I enjoyed the beach and had... More

My husband and I stayed at the Charela for our honeymoon this past July. We chose the Charela based on the reviews and we were not disappointed. We had an second floor, ocean facing room with a stellar view, and a very firm four poster bed. While the furnishings are certainly not pristine or "hotely" they do have a lived... 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
