Aged coconut palms.
Incredible ocean view.
This quiet, family-run hotel is on one of the nicest parts of Negril beach and recently benefitted from a renovation project. It's built hacienda-style, around a central courtyard,where there's a round swimming pool and a lush garden. All the rooms have lovely big beds and a patio or balcony. All furniture throughout the hotel is locally made and all food used is grown on the hotel's private farm. Many guests are repeat visitors, but newcomers are soon drawn in by the
friendly atmosphere. The hotel has live jazz and blues music on Thursday night and folkloric songs and dance on Saturdays at the very good restaurant.

Another stay in Paradise! This was our 3rd visit to the Charela and we continue to be treated like royalty...treated as well as people who have notched their 15th or 25th stay! Food continued superb, staff uncommonly graciious (even by Negril standards). The kitchen prepares what is arguably the best dinner on Negril beach (we chose the MAP plan and we were not disappointed) and the staff is very attentive, gracious. Get to know them; your stay
will be enriched. We'll be back in 365 days (but who's counting?). Thanks again!

The Charela is easily the most comfortable inn in the Negril area and some would say all of Jamaica. It is peaceful, well- appointed with a warm and caring staff. We have stayed 3 times and can't wait to return.

AlI can say is that sometimes one just gets lucky. We found the Charela Inn website by chance as we were trying to put together a last minute trip to Jamaica last month. Absolutely the nicest small hotel we've seen in many trips to the West Indies...on the best beach yet. Our room was lovely, the food outstanding, the service great (thanks, Tasha). If you prefer small, tastefully managed venues, the Charela is for you. We're going back.

We stayed at Charela Inn on our first visit to Negril in 1995. It was beautiful, extremely comfortable, the food was great and service friendly and professional. In planning a return trip(May 2000) we thought, "Charela was lovely, but we really should try someplace else..." While we were pleased with our accomodations elsewhere in Negril, we kept wandering back to Charela at dinner time -- three times in eight nights, and once while we were staying
on the cliffs! Next time we'll be back at Charela Inn. The atmosphere is adult and romantic. The food is consistently wonderful. (You can even get a pretty nice bottle of wine for $12-18!) There is not a better staff in all of Jamaica. And that beach...it seems to have gotten bigger, with enough palms and seagrapes for shady respite if desired.
