“Wonderful Holiday at Rayon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2011

We just returned from a great time at the Rayon Hotel. Upon arrival we were greeted kindly by the staff. Each staff member we encountered was friendly and did their best to make our vacation a great one. We were upgraded at no extra expense to the junior suite in the villa. It was very clean and comfortable. The views from the balcony were spectacular. The Great Morass- nature preserve is just behind the property and you are surrounded by palms and beautiful flowers and tropical plants. There are all types of birds and butterflies to watch. You never get tired of just looking off in the distance. The housekeeping staff were very efficient and were in and out of your room very quickly and left everything very nice. The entire property is well looked after.
The bar at Rayon had delicious drinks. The food at Sun Ray restaurant upstairs was delicious and homemade. The key to your dinner meal is to select it earlier in the day to ensure that they have the food on hand. If they don't they will be happy to shop for it and prepare it for you. If you select ahead of time, you can tell them what time you would like to eat and you won't have to wait.
Sunbeach bar is just across the street and they also have excellent food and drinks. The beach there is very nice and also entertaining. They have food specials and entertainment a couple of times a week.
You will find taxis just at the end of the laneway, ready to take you wherever you would like to go.
Miss Pansy Rayson also hosted a goodbye party for the guests that were leaving and had free snacks and party games. We met alot of different visitors and they all agreed that the Rayon is excellent value for your money.
Miss Pansy Rayson has excellent security for her property and she will see that your valuables will be safe.
We had a wonderful time at the Rayon Hotel. The hotel is situated right in the middle of the 7 mile beach and it is easy to get to just about anywhere you want to in Negril. Believe the good reviews you read about Rayon on Trip Advisor because they are TRUE.

My wife and I just got back from Negril. What a beautiful place. We stayed at Rayon for part of our trip and while it looks nice from the outside it leaves a lot to be desired. Our room didn't appear very clean. There were stains in the toilet, and what looked like mold in areas around the tub/shower. We were not provided with hand towels and lucky if we received washcloths every couple of days. The towels that were provided were threadbare at best. We also had a trail of ants climbing up the wall in the bathroom. The front desk staff were hit and miss in terms of friendliness, depending on the day. The grounds were pretty and well kept. We would definitely go back to Negril but would try another hotel next time.

We have stayed at Rayon the past four years. Have stayed for two to five weeks, and will be staying for five weeks Jan. - Feb. 2011. The staff is very friendly and always willing to correct any problems we have, which have been few. Ms. Pannsy lives on the proprty and is always available. We would recomend this hotel to anyone.

This will be our 5th year at the Rayon, have been in January, February and March, this year will be our longest stay yet, can't wait. We have never had a problem with anything or anyone there, quite the contrary, everyone is polite, friendly always have a smile on and happy to be of help. Contrary to some of the recent negative press, we had a change of dates last year and were not sure if we would even get there, in the end we did and there was absolutly no problem with date changes or even deferring our deposit to the next year. In our books Miss Pansey is a very honest "Hotellier"
