“Speechless, Breathtaking, Exceptional”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

It's hard to describe the wonderful experience I had at Round Hill, but I will attempt to do my best. From the time we arrived to the time we left the resort, we were treated with the utmost respect and attention. The ladies at the front desk were great. Otis, Jackson, Sylvan, Gavin, Owen, Claudine, Mrs. Annette and the rest of the staff made us feel right at home.

We were offered drinks when we arrived, and Mrs. Annette made us a feast for breakfast the first morning. The outstanding service was consistent at the resort restaurant, pool, and everywhere else we went. After experiencing Round Hill, I wouldn't even think about staying somewhere else.

Do your self a favor and stay at Round Hill. Be sure you request Davion as your Host and Transportation. He even gave us his contact information so we could call him whenever we needed a ride(1-876-286-6417) Davion was the icing on the cake and he made sure we got everywhere we needed to be on time. We had the best trip thanks to Davion and Round Hill.

A week to unwind - destination Round Hill in Jamaica. Travelling solo for the first time in 20 years (because of our poor planning, nor marital discord!!).

In the Round Hill resort you will stay in the Pineapple house (seafront rooms by the pool and beachfront) or in the seaview villas on the hill, each one discrete and individual.(They looked like fun)

I was down on the beach, which as a 'singly' was perfect. But there were a good few families there too - rooms can be joined together

Lowlights - not much to report - but just understand it is in the flightpath of Montego Bay airport, although frankly, I did not notice after one day, as arrivals and departures are restricted to a very few times a day

Highlights:

- excellent staff - even when things went a little astray (say a waiter getting distracted), customer satisfaction was clearly at the forefront of their approach - great to see
- food very good, and actually pretty reasonable value for a resort of this standard
- resort quality - it is in good shape, and my impression is that that management and staff work hard to keep it there, though their efforts are always subtle and almost invisible to the guests
- we don't have kids - but it was clear that those that did had great trust in the on-site nannies and kids club managers
- the spa - really good value, really high quality of treatment. They use Elemis products and treatments - up to the standard of the flagship spa in London
- repeat customers - loads of them - which is the mark of somewhere that sets and maintains great standards

I really enjoyed Round Hill - and suspect we will be back, ideally together next time!

Room Tip: Rooms downstairs have balconies - but I liked the better view from the first floor

We had the most wonderful experience of visiting Round Hill Resort in June 2013. What a lovely resort. Jamaica is so beautiful! So lush and tropical; flowers everywhere, birds, bluest ocean and the most welcoming people. The staff at Round Hill are incredible. They are always making sure everything is okay and attend to your every need. We stayed in Cottage 10 and it was like a dream. We had breakfast each day at the cottage and fresh flowers were put on the table for us along with just picked fruit. The restaurant is lovely and the menu varied and delicious. The food was fantastic to say the least. We ventured over to the spa area (although I did not visit the spa) and it is so idyllic there. A double hammock awaits you to sway away while watching the clouds and listening to the waves. Drivers are always available to take you out and a taxi ride costs about $60.00 both ways ( their gas prices are higher so this seemed more than fair) to Montego Bay. The gardens and grounds of the resort are so beautiful; a must see. There is a very interesting history to the resort and we found this especially intriguing. Jamaica is beautiful; very mountainous. The best coffee on the planet is grown in those mountains! Do visit Jamaica and especially Round Hill Resort.

Room Tip: We stayed in a cottage (they have private pools) and all the cottages looked so pretty. The hotel wa...

My cousin and I had originally planned to stay at a boutique resort in Negril however our excitement with the resort soon diminished after having unwanted experiences with critters! After getting on the internet and making many phone calls we chose Round HIll and OMG, can I say that this was the best decision we could have made. The staff was wonderful and the accommodations were beautiful & luxurious. Our suite overlooked the ocean, it was incredibly clean and the amenities included made it so that our stay there was well worth it! The watersports were a huge plus and were included in our reservation, thus, I spent a lot of time in the ocean snorkeling, kayaking, sailing, etc. If you are looking for a beautiful, clean, pleasant, and plush resort you must consider Round Hill!

Round Hill Villa #12 was spectacular! We went to bed with the relaxing sound of birds and frogs singing and woke up to the most spectacular sunrise. The property was very well kept and the staff was beyond friendly! We loved our in-house "family", Nora and Eudell. They always had our breakfast cooked and ready for us on the patio! The food was always wonderful whether you wanted authentic cuisine or American staples. We loved the beach because you had a choice of sun or shade from the almond trees. The property had some of the most beautiful flora, we loved the walk to the spa, it felt as though you were traveling through a pristine rainforest on one side with the beautiful ocean on the other! We highly recommend Round Hill Villa #12, the view, the staff, our driver Clifford, the on site pool, and the relaxing atmosphere made it a perfect Caribbean vacation!

Beautiful place, quiet yet enough to keep you busy if you wish to do so. Property is very well kept, clean rooms. The decor of the rooms was beautiful in all white, very classy.
We stayed by the pool and my daughter loved it!
Pool is very nice since they have an area for small kids! really enjoyed that :)
Food was ok, it's not the best I've had but definitely good for the price.
We really enjoyed the daily complimentary tea/coffee as it seems around that time of day it rained that week we were there!

Just came back from a fabulous long weekend getaway! The only problem with the vacation was it was too short!
The resort is very authentic Jamaican, yet has the modern amenities you would want to find. Loved the fact that there are no tv's in the room. There is a huge large screen tv and we were able to enjoy the Miami Heat win the championship along with a large group of other guests. The food is great and the staff couldn't have been any better! The management is amazing and it shows with the rest of the staff in their service and friendliness. The beach is super nice and the water great. The pool area and rest of the facilities immaculate.
I hadn't been to Jamaica in over 23 years and can't wait to go back.
