My b/f took me to Negril one weekend because I was stressed out at work. We had booked a very cheap hotel first, but when we stopped by, we were not impressed so we decided to travel the strip in search of a good hotel with reasonable rates... We ended up at Rondel Village and fell in love with the room on sight. We stayed in Apple on the beach side.
The room was clean, the linen and towels comfortable, and the AC worked very well. The pool was great, but the jacuzzi was only hot at nights. I am not sure if there was a way to turn the heat on ourselves. I looked around a bit and saw no controls, so we just waited for the nights. Heh. The food was delicious but expensive. The drinks at the bar were overpriced as well. We only had breakfast at the hotel (too lazy to go driving so early in the morning). We went into town for our other meals.
The staff were friendly and greeted us whenever they saw us. The hustlers...well, they dropped their prices as soon as they discovered that we were Jamaicans, but they annoyed us just the same. The b/f got really upset and told some of them exactly what he felt about their behaviour. I just tended to laugh and walk away.
All in all, it was a great stay. We are already planning our next trip!
