Round Hill Hotel and Villas has long been the most beautiful and elegant boutique resort in the Caribbean, known for understated glamour, discreet impeccable service and warm Jamaican hospitality. This legendary hotel has managed to maintain its timeless elegance without seeming dated or old fashioned. On the contrary: this private resort now has even more comforts and the new concepts in the restaurant and spa make it more extraordinary than ever.

Numerous business, political, entertainment, athletic and cultural celebrities have spent glamorous and carefree vacations at Round Hill Hotel & Villas since opening in 1953. Originally the private haven of style icons such as Noel Coward, Babe Paley, Cole Porter, Grace Kelly and Jackie Kennedy, this fabled boutique resort property comprised of 27 private villas, a 36-room oceanfront hotel, spa and exquisite dining feels like a charming, comfortable and family-oriented private club.

Round Hill's old world glamour is set amidst a lush tropical backdrop where everyone is made to feel right at home. The pleasant, year-round tropical climate makes it possible for guests to spend the majority of their time outdoors. Round Hill's privacy, refinement and warm Jamaican service continues to be a haven for a long list of today's icons and tastemakers.

Round Hill is privately-owned, and run as an unusual blend of a Club and a resort, directed by a Chairman and a Board of Directors elected from the shareholders. Management is headed by the Managing Director. The hotel operates year round with a full time staff of 220, about 160 of them having served Round Hill's guests for over 15 years. Before 1989, Round Hill Hotel and Villas was open only during the winter "season".

Review:   Recommended for: Families, couples

Pros: Classic, elegant architecture--has an "estate" feel. Lovely location on a protected cove, with terrific snorkeling. Great restaurant on the patio overlooking the water. Isolated from the busy center of Montego Bay, and away from the airport, but really only 15 minute drive from anything you want to get to in that area.

Cons: None.

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves.

Review:   Our stay at the Round Hill was one of the best hotel experiences I've ever had. Everything at this hotel is exceptional: the villas, the staff, the hotel grounds, the fitness center, the breakfast buffet as well as the restaurants and bars. Oh and that coffee!! When we booked our trip we were looking for a relaxing beach vacation and this is exactly what we got. The Round Hill is the kind of resort you don't have or want to leave while you're there. We enjoyed one of the villas, not knowing ahead of our stay, that it included a private chef (in our case Jennifer who was wonderful) who would prepare and serve a delicious breakfast for you on your private patio. The hotel grounds are superb. The pool are is wonderful and never too crowded. Make sure to order a Dirty Banana while you're there! We also very much enjoyed the beach (which is only accessible to hotel guests) with an early morning coffee. About the Blue Mountain coffee: the simple drip coffee which is available in the hotel lobby is better than any other coffee we've ever had anywhere else. We normally don't like to revisit a hotel for the sake of increasing the amount of different experiences in our lives but in the case of the Round Hill we are very happy to make an exception!

Review:   Round Hill was amazing! The employees were so nice and welcoming, the food was terrific, there was so much to do, everything within the resort was walking distance (I stayed in the Pineapple Rooms), the weather was always perfect, I loved the fact that they take hospitality so seriously, they even have a nurse for the villas! The beach was so nice to be on, I loved the idea of a water trampoline! The only two "cons" of staying here was that the wifi wasn't terrific, which was alright because of the variety of activities in the Montego Bay Area kept you busy; and when you're walking on stairs in the Pineapple rooms, it can be pretty easy to scrape yourself as you're walking down, so be careful of that! I wish I could give half stars because this deserves 1/2 a star more!!
