My wife and I just returned from another annual vacation in Jamaica ... and our 4th consecutive year staying at the Charela Inn. As stated in many of the previous reviews, the Charela Inn offers the best beach with great shade or sun options depending on your preference, excellent meals in their restaurant, good rooms with views and the great service from the tenured and caring employees keep us coming back.
The employees at the Charela are great and we look forward to reaquainting with them every year. From Carolyn at the front desk, to Minnel who takes your bags to the room and helps with your cab or travel needs, to Francella and Debbie who great you every morning for breakfast with a smile (over twenty years at Charela) to Anessa and Marci and team who provide the service over dinner ... and not to forget Clive who manages the Charela beach 6 days a week. Clive may be one of the more misunderstood personalities working at the Charela, but get to know him, and he is darn good in helping make sure your day in the sand is a great one.
Introduce yourself to him on your first day, let him know where you'd like your beach chairs ... full sun, full shade or in between. Provide an appropriate tip at that time and Clive will have your chairs in place, with towels, awaiting your arrival every day during your stay. He arrives before 6AM to manicure the beach and organize the chairs for all of the guests. If you enjoy throwing the frisbee or playing a game of 'corn hole' ... Clive will join you and showcase his frisbee skills ... or beat you at corn hole.
- 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 fifty 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
