I'd heard about Round Hill from many people - always glowing recommendations. Indeed, it's all true. The setting, nestled in a hill by the sea, is perfect, as is the weather 90% of the time (so I'm told). The drive from the airport is under 30 minutes, and when you arrive you'll never want to leave. For parents with young... More

The charm here is that this ISN'T a mass market resort experience. It feels personalized, authentic...this place has been around for over 50 years. It's small and so a bit on the down low. No it's not as polished as some of the newer resorts, but it has a quirky bohemian flair, kind of like the aging preppy uncle with... More

I live by a travel rule to never go back to the same resort twice. With hundreds of new options and remarkable properties coming on line why go back to the same place when you can experience something new, different, and exciting? Round Hill Resort is the exception. I recently returned from a second stay and I found Round Hill... More

We had never been to Jamaica before and saw the wonderful reviews and had spoken to others who had stayed here. Even locals said it was the best. It's an old hotel, over 60 yrs old but with great charm. We stayed at the main hotel. We had a top room which I would recommend since you have higher ceilings... More

RH is not cheap, but it's worth it. Picture an upscale American country club transferred to a tropical setting. Immaculate grounds, wonderful staff, gorgeous beach and pool...and the food - wow! This place is such a step up from the all-inclusive resorts in Cancun or Negril. Here are some quick notes: -We didn't realize how expensive it is to eat... More

Round Hill is a very special place for our family. It offers timeless beauty coupled with casual elegance. We have been visiting for the last 7 years. From our very first trip we were treated like family. The staff is warm, friendly and extremely helpful.

I've had Round Hill on my list for a while. It consistently places in the T&L and CNT Best Caribbean Hotels lists. A convenient ride from the airport, the resort is secluded, set on a small beach. (Something we knew before arriving but didn't help considering the atmosphere. More about this below.) I grew up in NJ and traveled a... More

Roundhill maintains an iconic charm. You could easily be walking into the bar or tea in a film set in the 1950's and it would work...but make no mistake this is a modern, well appointed resort. The attention to detail in design and aesthetics are exceptional, the spa and fitness center top notch and the property itself, clean, well staffed... More

This resort is something from another century. Nestled on a hill overlooking a bay with winding paths and walkways and spectacular views from the Grill restaurant, you won't want to leave. The food is fabulous, prices normal for high end resorts, which means a bit on the high side. The staff are prompt, courteous and very friendly. For something different,... More
