“Had another great stay at rondel village. Housekeeping staff is excellent (we had Donna), but all of them are friendly. We feel like we are going home when the staff sees us; then takes the time to ask how we have been and welcomes us back. Always like catching up with Delroy at the bar, best bartender on the beach.

We really like the villas and have booked for next April again. First class operation”.

  • Reuse. Reuse decor items. Take full advantage of elegant decor options provided by your destination wedding venue.

Not into vintage? Select attire options that are in-line with your wedding vision and kind to our planet. Example: choose apparel for you and your wedding party that can be easily worn after your big day is over.
