We just came back from a long weekend in Negril, Jamaica where we stayed at the Rondell Village Resort. We had a great time, the accommodations was a great value. The hotel is rated as a 2 1/2 star hotel which is about right. We got a great deal through Expedia for a 3 night package including air from upstate NY for approx $560. The room was large with 2 double beds (there were 3 of us). I did have a couple of issues...one being that one of the locks on our door was broken and on the second day we had an ant problem in one area in the bathroom. I must say that as soon as we alerted staff to each of the issues, they had someone there within minutes to fix the problem. The lock was fixed and an exterminator was sent over very quickly to take care of the ant problem. The room was a decent size with plenty of room for the 3 of us. The bedding, furniture, etc. was pretty up-to-date. There was a color tv with cable and a small refrigerator, table w/two chairs in the room. The air conditioning worked great plus there was a ceiling fan in case we had a preference. The room was very neat and clean and the staff was wonderful. They were very pleasant and very helpful and did not mind answering any of our questions and giving us good tour information. My only gripe is the slowness of service in the resort's restaurant. We had breakfast there twice, the first time just for simple breakfasts like pancakes & coffee and tea and toast, it took approx 45 minutes to get served. The second time...again, very simple breakfasts we got served an hour & 15 min later. Needless to say, I don't recommend bothering to try to eat there unless you have all day to spend waiting for your food. Plus the food was average at best. The other gripe was that the pump on our pool was broken and 2 of the 3 days we could not use the pool. We, of course spent time on the beautiful beach, but in the evening, it was nice to be able to sit in the jacuzzi or take a dip in the pool. We stayed in what is considered a "garden" room which means it looks like a cottage and there is a group of approx 4 or 5 of them that sit accross the road from the main office and the beachside. The rooms on the beach side where the office is are more expensive because of being closer to the beach. If I went to the resort again, which I would, I would still stay in the same area that we stayed. The walk is so short that we're glad we saved our money and used it to shop and do other activities. The resort does have 24-hour security so we did feel pretty comfortable and safe. The resort is located almost near the middle of the 7-mile beach with plenty of great places nearby such as Margaritaville, The Jungle Night Club, Alfred's restaurant & bar and plenty of other small restaurants within walking distance. I would definitely recommend this resort. It was a great value for the money.
