My husband and I booked the Rockhouse Hotel only 3.5 weeks out. Of course all the villas were taken so we settled on one of the studio suites. I have to say, for $150/night we were quite pleased. The room is small and intimate, but everything is very well taken care of. Excellent views of the ocean from your private patio.
The staff at the restaurant was fantasic including the food. My only comment would be that the rest of the staff, while super nice and very respectful of personal space, were a little on the reserved side, especially the front desk. I wish they would have been more open in offering up suggestions for tours, and just in general things to do/see. I felt like we were a little on our own in that aspect.
General Note: The waters around the rockhouse are pretty choppy with strong winds. I'm not sure if this is seasonal or not, but we were there in June 2012 and it was a lot rougher than what I thought. We were able to go out snorkeling in the cove one afternoon which was nice.
