Breathtaking cliffs, gorgeous natural surroundings, beautiful sunsets, and service par excellence – the Rockhouse Hotel in Negril, Jamaica has it all.
This idyllic resort is stretched over Negril's renowned cliffs overlooking the pristine Caribbean Sea. Guests can stay in one of four types of rooms. My boyfriend and I stayed in the very comfortable standard room for two of our four-night stay, then upgraded to an ocean view villa and premium villa on our final night. Although the rooms are without televisions, you likely won't miss having one after your first day there. Rockhouse has a fantastic swimming pool situated on a cliff overlooking the sea–couple that with a great pool bar and cushy sun-loungers, one can easily spend the day poolside. Snorkelling and cliff diving are also popular activities. The water is crystal clear and there is plenty of marine life to see. We even saw a dolphin one afternoon!
The front desk staff is very accommodating and knowledgeable. Tours to various attractions are easily arranged. Room service is also quick.
Dining at the Rockhouse restaurant is highly recommended. The food is excellent and the views from the outdoor patio are spectacular, especially at sunset.
Many thanks to general manager Matt and the Rockhouse staff for a truly unforgettable stay. We've recommended it to many of our friends and can't wait to return.
