This review is wayyyyyyyyy overdue. We've been to Negril on several occasions. At The Rockhouse and once somewhere else, on the beach. What a mistake!!!!
I'm not sure that anywhere we go on this island will compare to The Rockhouse.
The rooms (we stayed in a standard, lower floor, on the corner) are clean and large. We had a beautiful covered, private, outdoor patio within the room as well as a sitting area in front of the room. The grounds are perfectly maintained. The staff is WONDERFUL. They seem to know everyone's name which is quite amazing! Shout out to Bally and Chevon! They are fantastic. From clipping me fresh aloe daily, to having our drinks ready when we walked up to the bar - this is top notch service. No screaming kids in the pool - MAJOR plus! The security made us feel safe at all times. The restaurants on property were all delicious. As a matter of fact, the owners own a handful of restaurants in NyC - they were onsite during my stay, so we chatted a bit. Very nice guys. No wonder I felt so at home! There was always a cab waiting to jet us wherever we wanted to go. I'm only sad that I don't immediately book my next return visit upon checkout. The hotel is nearly booked solid ever time I inquire. The secret is out!
