After seeing many photographs of the Rockhouse in travel magazines of Room 10 jutting out into the ocean. To be able to finally stay there was an absolute dream come true! My wife and I first found out about this gem of a hotel on taking a boat ride 10 years ago in Negril on a vessel named the Wildthing. It cruised by the most beautiful hotel we had ever seen.
In March of 2013...we finally were able to stay there. Upon check in we were greeted at the front desk by complimentary rumpunches and escorted to our own bungelo overlooking the ocean. And yes, our room was next to the world famous Room 10! Just like something out of a magazine.The view of the ocean was breathtaking and the staff couldn't have been lovelier.
Do remember however that the pool use and ocean swimming can be effected greatly by rough seas. As My wife and I were there during the March winds and could not use the pool during our stay or go in the ocean.
The food is amazing! Never did we have a bad meal. Remember to have lunch at the Pushcart...Snapper sandwich is to die for!
