Excellent hotel and restaurant only draw back was no aircon, it was hot! The food was excellent, hotel is very different to anything we had seen, although reminded us of Cappadocia, Turkey. Only draw back was no air con but I think the hotel is still evolving. Owner and his

Ah my lovely lady with the headache!...our encounter was only short but I remember you well. The pleasure of welcoming and taking personal care of your guests is at the core of hospitality, if one does not have the heart for it, one should not be in the profession. When a guest is not well or upset then that is an opportunity to double your efforts. In the end we are all human and giving is in our nature (or should be). With those words I thank you and others who are so generous with their reviews, as another human it touches me deeply to read them. John Flintstone at Rockwater.

Really cool and clean rooms, has its own little part of the ocean, away from popular sites. Silvana, John and the whole team are very very welcoming, and it is almost like staying with your family. We could go to the grocery market with staff, just like family. Silvana will call

When explaining our values to new staff I often explain it this way; "...we are creating a home away from home for our guests, we want to make them feel like they are staying with family. If we can look after them and evoke this feeling then we have done our job." So thank you XiaojiaoL1 for your kind words as it will only encourage Rockwater to become more homely. All the best to you both, John

Hi, is there a day spa at this resort?
Thank you for asking, the Spa is planned for 2020 in addition to another 8 or 10 rooms.
