“Perfect Relaxing Family Holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

This place is exceptionally good.

Yes its a little expensive, but at the end of the day you get what you pay for. We stayed for 2 weeks in an immaculate master villa suite, as the hotel was quiet we had the whole villa to ourselves. Staff go out of their way to be friendly and helpful. Food was very good, and enough variety to not get bored in two weeks. Pool is lovely and beach is gently shelved so great for kids.

Intended to do excursions and meals out but only left the resort for one dinner in the end as we felt little desire to go anywhere else. Its all to easy on site.

Cant wait to go back.

Room Tip: Cottage12 has a great view and lovely staff, Eudell, Norah & Kingsley. Master Villa suite is ma...

This is my second visit to Round Hill staying in Cottage 11. This is a fantastic place and gets better with every visit. It is hard to imagine how it could improve on my first visit but it did. The food was better and listening to the amazing pianist in the evenings in the beautiful bar was just amazing. Every member of staff is friendly and helpful. If your budget will stretch to a villa then go for it. They are lovely with amazing views and so much space. The day starts with breakfast cooked by your maid and laid out beautifully on the terrace. The spa is great and I would recommend the massage on the beach. I only managed 3 days on this visit but was so well looked after that it felt so much longer. I have stayed at The Ritz Carlton and Half Moon but nothing gets close to Round Hill. It is quite simply perfection.

Round Hill is a beautiful gem. The view is spectular. The resort is clean and the grounds are well kept. The staff is very friendly. The rooms are clean and spacious with Ralph Lauren design. The villas are spacious, clean, and private. When you go book cottage 25 or cottage 7 depending on the size of your family (I love them both). Cottage 25 is beautiful, has 2 bedrooms, living room, kitchen, pool, hot tub, and above all a magnificent view of the caribbean sea. Cottage 7 has 4 bedrooms (awesome). Joy made wonderful breakfast each morning. The food is excellent. The drive to the resort 10 to 15 minutes from the airport is scenic. Love Round Hill. Will be back. You have to experience this lovely Gem in Jamaica. Very nice for weddings, honeymoon, family vacations, romantic get-a-ways or just a way to escape the hustle and bustle of the offfice.

Room Tip: Book a cottage.

Round Hill is a beautiful and wonderful vacation for couples or family. My husband and I went for our anniversary-- with our 2 year old. It was a perfect mix of couples and family time as the Kids Club and baby sitters are excellent.

Thanks for choosing Round Hill for your anniversary and family vacation. Our Kids Club staff always ensure that the children are well taken care of. Usually, it is the first place that children go back to upon returning to our resort. Looking forward to your next visit.

We recently visited Round Hill for a family wedding weekend. It was fabulous. The event itself was breathtaking. The resort a small slice of peace and tranquility. We had a wonderful stay. The water, pool , spa and grounds are pretty and most of all relaxing.
We are already talking about dates to visit again.

We have been to this property several times, but this was by far the Best! They have made some improvements to the overall appearance and menu.Brimsley, the beloved and cherished piano Man is back......it was absolutely perfect! We met many new people on this trip and we all had a Great time and are planning our return together! Round Hill is such a special, safe place...it is truly like being at home! I must say that the only thing disappointing about this place or trip was coming home and leaving it and the staff behind! Kudos to Omar, Josef, David, Stewart, Ozzley, Jackie, Delano, Mario and Mr. Kingsley, with Respect!

Room Tip: Patio rooms at the pineapple house or a villa are the ones to book!

Someone broke in my room and stole my laptop, bag, charger, and the vacation photos from when my daughter and I swam with the dolphins. Not to mention that they were in the same room my kids were sleeping in. I will say, they have a safe to put your valuables in. However, kt was a work computer, so at some point it has to be charged, which is when they committed the robbery. Also, my laptop bag would not fit in the safe.

There is nothing more personal than stealing a laptop. I tipped everyone VERY well. Anyone who smiled at me got a tip, so I didn't feel that I deserved this disappointment. I would estimate that I spent around $2,000 on tipping alone.

It's a nice place, but I don't feel that it is safe enough for me to ever return.
