We absolutely loved Round Hill. Stayed in Cottage 24 and our villa staff was Joy and Neil, both outstanding. The property is lush, beach is blue and the pool is refreshing. Food is good too :)) Evening dinners are lively and have live music. Our bed was very comfortable and villa was maintained quite well. We enjoyed the history that has been preserved here. Just a wonderful place to stay and relax.

Hotel's Favourite
My husband and I recently returned from a trip with 3 other couples celebrating a 50th birthday. The resort is 30-40 minutes from the airport and easy to get to. Round Hill was the perfect setting for this celebration. We were greeted with smiles, wet towels for our hands, and rum punch. Our villa was not ready yet so we enjoyed a beautiful lunch. I highly recommend the platinum plan which included B, L, D, and all drinks by the glass. The food and drink selections are top-notch! You are always asked to sign the check, but I believe it is to see the added 15% service tip. With the wonderful service, you will most likely always add additional tips but it is not expected. We were in villa 13 and there were 4 beautiful bedrooms. The 2nd story master was two floors and had a private infinity plunge pool. All of the bedrooms were spectacular. We had a large pool and hot tub and the view was stunning. There are golf carts always waiting to bring you up the hill after the beach or a meal. Every morning we enjoyed a stunning breakfast which included fruit, pancakes, omelets, and baked goodies which is included in the plan. You fill out a request every evening and place it in the kitchen. What a treat! We loved our pool but also enjoyed venturing down to the beach for sun and fun. The water is a calm cove and there is snorkeling and a water trampoline. There are two beach bars and you must have a dirty banana with a floater. Stewart is the man! The resort utilizes the amazing tree canopies for shade but don't be fooled into not wearing sunscreen. Lunch can be enjoyed on the beach or the patio. One day they even carted it back to our villa for us. Everything is delicious but the tuna, clubs, and pizza were the group favorites. Dinner was served on the patio under the trees draped in white lights. Every night there was a theme ....farm to table, Caribbean, beach party. The food was very high-end and delicious. Men were expected to wear pants and people got dressed up. The nightly entertainment was lively and did a great job of getting people up and dancing. There were two other groups of couples traveling and the dance floor was a lot of fun. I have been hearing incredible things about Round Hill for some time and it did not disappoint. The resort NEVER felt crowded and someone was there to help at all times. Villa 13 had a group of kind and talented staff who made us feel like we were at home. Thank you. Everyone at the resort was there to enhance your experience. It seemed as though most of the staff has been there for a long time and I can see why. The property is lush green and the landscaping is natural and beautiful. You feel as though the resort was built to be one with the environment. They harvest most of the fruit and vegetables from their property. If you needed anything or asked for something the response was always "yea mon". Their goal is for your experience to positive and to come back. I can say with 100% certainty that I will be returning to Round Hill. Thank you for a wonderuful experiene.

After our first visit to Round Hill three years ago, we couldn’t imagine having a better experience. We also expected some bumpy service based on Covid precautions, but the staff at Round Hill were extraordinary as ever. Our room was service twice a day and servers were prompt and available at the restaurants and bars. Upon arrival at the airport, I walked up to the Round Hill counter and the representative greeted me by name before I was able to introduce myself. She called for the vehicle which picked us up promptly at curbside. In less than 30 minutes, we arrived at the breathtaking grounds of the hotel. We stayed in the Pineapple House to be closest to the beach and restaurants and our room was immaculate and expertly appointed. For the rest of the stay, we alternated between the beach and pool, while eating lunch (great Jamaican and continental choices) from our lounge chairs. Our group loved the jerk chicken wrap and chicken wings which were flavorful with the right amount of spice. Every day, my daughter and I took a break from the water to enjoy high tea with a lovely choice of beverages, buttery scones, finger sandwiches, homemade cookies, fruit salad, etc. We had dinner a couple of times at the hotel which was always fresh, healthy and delicious. I became hooked on the Jamaican breakfast consisting of ackee and smoked fish, caliloo and yams, which had the perfect amount of scotch bonnet pepper to wake you up. I’m not a coffee drinker but my husband and friends loved the blue mountain coffee there too. Thank you to Jackie for being so accommodating and sweet to our family, especially to our daughter who loves you! Dinner offsite included amazing meals at the Lobster Trapp (heavenly grilled lobster, salad, soup, rice and peas, etc.) right on the water with picturesque sunset views. We also enjoyed Sky Beach for its grilled jerk snapper and MVP for its five-spice stew. Now, let’s get back to Round Hill. The beach is ideal — private, soft sand, shallow, warm and clear water, with sufficient shade due to trees with thick canopies. There were plenty of lounge chairs available and it never felt crowded. We enjoyed the water activity center a few steps from the beach for boating and snorkeling, kayaking, paddle-boarding and tubing. Keanu and Sean were knowledgeable and a lot of fun on our boat ride. Lastly, I have to complement our driver, Dorman, who was always prompt, friendly and accommodating. We can’t wait to return to Round Hill for our third visit very soon!

This resort is beyond words; it’s a place one has to experience. The grounds, the room, the facilities, food and drinks are spectacular; more importantly is the staff. Everyday the staff went above and beyond to make my stay extremely enjoyable. Besides being very professional; they are so very accommodating.

From my reception at the airport to the minute I arrived at the resort I felt “at home” because so many members of the Round Hill staff including the Managing Director Josef Forstmayr we’re uncanny in their ability to anticipate my every need. I was in room 109 which featured a splendid balcony with view of the infinity pool and ocean. Friends were staying with their children in one of the villas, where we gathered for drinks round their private pool before dinner. The Round Hill location is breathtaking and the service was outstanding all around. A few staff members who were especially attentive were Steve the lifeguard who every day took great care setting up my umbrella and chair, Steadman at Water Sports who made me aware that my new passion is snorkeling, Menseita and Aleesha in reservations, Troy and Owen at the bell desk to name just a few of the stars who make the resort shine.
