We love the Charela. I have spent a lot of time in Negril and explored different accommodation options. The Charela is the best choice for our family with 2 children aged 8 and 9. The kids can swim in the pool/ocean and explore the wide stretch of beach complete with beautiful palm trees to provide shade. There is entertainment a couple of nights, but we tend to eat our evening meals up on the cliffs at Rockhouse/Pushcart etc. Most of the restaurants will send a car to collect you and only charge for the return trip. The Charela is a good choice if you love Negril but want to avoid the smoking/hard drinking that seems to be part of many other guests holiday.
The staff are great - very helpful and polite and they remember your preferences. We were complemented on our children's behaviour many times which made the kids feels confident, welcomed and relaxed. The new beach attendant was very helpful and friendly, an improvement on our last visit. We also took some long trips with Wayne, who can be booked thru the hotel as a driver, he was brilliant and comes highly recommended.
We'll be back soon, we hope.
- 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
