Destination Wedding: Jamaica
Nothing speaks better to the ease and beauty of a wedding at Round Hill more than the comments we receive from a newly married couple. Below are a few excerpts from those who have experienced the classic elegance of Round Hill with family and friends aside the beautiful Caribbean Sea.
"When it came to planning I knew right away I wanted to have it at the Round Hill hotel. The hotel, a former pineapple plantation had the exact style I wanted. It was a glamorous but carefree, a place that housed icons like Babe Paley (my favorite is the Slim Aarons photograph of her in her villa!), Grace Kelly, Noel Crawford and Jackie Kennedy. It was small enough that you can see everyone and large enough that all my guests could stay there. Growing up, my family loved the 1950’s — loved Frank Sinatra and the casual elegance that surrounded that time, so when I saw the place, I fell in love. We actually stayed in villa 25 where is where JFK practiced his now-famous inaugural speech.."

"We got married at Round Hill this past April and could not have asked for a better or more memorable experience. It is easy to see from the photos how incredible the property is, but what they can't convey is the level of service that the Round Hill team provides. The staff has a way of making you feel like you belong there, and they definitely make it so that you do not want to leave.
Our wedding was everything that we could have asked for and more. Rochelle was extremely helpful, making sure that all of the details were in order. The food was great, the service was on point, and the atmosphere was lively; everything was perfect. We had the time of our lives and our guests did as well. They all went home raving about the property and many have already started planning a Round Hill reunion trip!
We cannot wait to get back."

"Jessica and I would like to personally thank you for the amazing wedding weekend Round Hill provided us with. Everything from start to finish was flawless. It felt like each night's event was a wedding in and of itself. Our family and friends were blown away by the hotel and staff. They can't stop asking when we are all going back. It was paradise.
Rochelle and Keisha really came through for us, as well as the rest of the entire staff. Everyone was so nice and welcoming. We cannot imagine vacationing anywhere else. It was a weekend we will never forget and the memories will last for the rest of our lives. There truly is no other place on earth like Round Hill. That is some operation you run, you should be very proud. We will for sure be back sometime very soon.
Thank you again,"

"Once engaged my husband and I knew we wanted to be married somewhere private and beautiful with just our closest family. After looking at all kinds of resorts, we decided that Round Hill was right for us. Rochelle, the wedding planner, was very attentive prior to the wedding, taking care of almost everything through emails with me.
Once we arrived, everything went perfectly. It was so easy, so nice, so great. Every detail was exactly what I wanted. I think most brides have some small regrets here or there, but I can honestly say there is not a thing I would change about my wedding at Round Hill. The staff was wonderful, making us feel like they were just old friends. The entire place was beautiful. The food was amazing.
We can't wait to go back."

"At Round Hill, have a torch-lit rehearsal soiree on the beach, and then wed on a lawn sweeping down to the sea at this Montego Bay classic."
"With acres of tropical gardens and an oceanfront setting, it has no shortage of scenic 'I Do" spots."
"Round Hill has hosted its share of icons – from Elizabeth Taylor to Fred Astaire – but every guest is treated famously."
