“Paradise”
Reviewed 5 November 2011

My wife and I vacationed at the Rockhouse hotel from October 23-28 and had a wonderful time. We stayed at villa 15 and found the views and accommodations were outstanding. Without going on and on how great the vacation was I would just say it was one of the best times my wife and I have ever had. A few monor problems, but nothing needs to be listed.
The staff, food and setting could not be beat.
A very relaxing enviorment.
My wife and I will return in the future.

Room Tip: Villa 15 was great

We stayed at the Rockhouse a few weeks ago in October and will bring away the fondest memories of all times. It was our 25th Wedding Anniversary and this was the perfect place to celebrate. The service, the setting and the privacy made a perfect combination for our special occasion. We stayed in one of the standard villas and there was nothing standard about it. The bed was comfy, the shower was sexy and the outdoor living area was astounding. We snorkeled right off the property every day. It has an amazing sheltered reef that provides hours of fun. The Villas are very pricey so it was probably a once in a lifetime vacation however their studios and hotel rooms look very decent for the fraction of the price and you are still on the property.
Thanks again to Andy who rescued our camera. Hope your Sea Urchin stings stopped stinging.

Room Tip: The Villas are superb but don't count out the studios, expecially room 28.

We stayed at the Rockhouse this past February for the second time. Our premium villa number 3 was fabulous with incredible 180 degree sea views and outdoor shower. One of the real treats of this property is that there is no need to run in the morning to secure beach chairs since they are right outside your room. Every day we would swim across the bay in front of our room to the hotel pool restaurant and have lunch then swim back to our beach chairs. What a treat! We can't wait to return for our next visit.

We booked this hotel for our honey moon and we were really excited, but when we got there we realized this place was even better than what we imagined. They received us with a welcome rum punch and showed us our villa by the water. The villas are really comfortable and of course have an amazing view, and you can access the water by your villa or many other places around the hotel! The restaurants are amazing! the food is really fresh! The coconut shrimp is to die for and they have a dapper snapper thing that is snapper wrapped in banana leaves, which is the best thing I ate during the trip. Lot of red stripes, lunch by the pool, snorkeling, and the staff is as friendly as it can possibly be! Try the famous Vincent for a nice tour on a glass bottom boat! Next time we will go spear fishing with Vincent! Lunch by the pool on the pool side grill is amazing and happy hour by the pool is really fun as well. We jumped from a bunch of different cliffs and it was really fun! after you do your first jump you dare to do more crazy stuff

Room Tip: Book waterfront Villa!

My boyfriend and I and the rest of my family traveled to the RockHouse for my sister's wedding this past summer. It was really one of the most wonderful vacations I have been on. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and the attitude of Jamaica resonates throughout the grounds, No worries! The food was really excellent, for the wedding and in the RockHouse restaurant. The rooms are so beachy and nice and really cement the reason you are in Jamaica, not to sit in your room and watch t.v. but to be near the ocean and be outside. The outdoor showers are fun too. The sunsets on the cliffs are spectacular! This hotel is definitely worth the money and I would recommend it to anyone looking to have some relaxation and fun on the cliffs. Try the snapper sandwich at the pool bar!

Just returned from a great relaxing week at Rockhouse. Overall it was a super relaxing trip and a really great place. We stayed in Villa 13 and enjoyed our little terrace and ladder into the gorgeous, clear sea. Having been to Jamaica many times, this was my first venture to the west end of Negril and we really enjoyed. A couple of tips, you can go out of the property and turn right, there is a bar/gill called De Bar across the street, very basic, but good food and good prices...the people were really nice also. Additionally, down the road is the Blue Cave Castle, very interesting old school hotel. Not sure I would want to stay there, but Teddy made the most amazing banana, rum and cinnamon pancakes...and cheap too! We stayed close to the property mostly though and would have liked a more varied menu and better room service, but other than that all good. Will definately go back...oh, and highly recommend the spa.

My girlfriend and I went to negril on vacation, we stayed at Rockhouse because the pictures online looked so beautiful and once we showed up i couldn't believe it the property is gorgeous and the views are breathtaking. We were greeted with a drink as we checked in and were escorted to our own little cottage by a very helpful staff member. We walked into an amazing room right on the cliffs overlooking the water i could not believe that I was in such a beautiful place. The room had a/c witch is very important to me. I am so impressed with everything they have to offer the property cant be beat the pool on the cliffs is a great spot to relax every room has its own little spot to sit and enjoy the view the sunset was so incredible the staff is spectacular and the food and drinks at the restaurant and their other restaurant the push cart cant be beat i never wanted to leave and there is no doubt in my mind that I will be returning many times
