What an amazing, amazing place! When we arrived we were pleasantly upgraded to a "studio", which for $150/night, is an incredible bargain. However, if you should choose to stay at this magnificent place, there are two types of studios-- a room which is more like a regular hotel room and a private hut which is actually your own personal slice of paradise. I obviously recommend the latter (ask for any room 1-12, I believe). We stayed in Room 9 and couldn't have asked for a more perfect and romantic getaway. At night we would take a Red Stripe to one of the massage parlors overlooking the ocean or to the bridge across from our hut and bask in the tranquility of it all.
The food is a bit expensive, but excellent, as are the poolside drinks. If you want great local places to eat, Sips and Bites next door offers great breakfasts and a super-friendly staff. The staff at Rockhouse is also extremely helpful in recommending outside places to go. If you are willing to pay the extra bucks, there is really no reason to leave the Rockhouse. The beach is ok (pretty narrow and overdeveloped in Negril), but full of people trying to sell weed, etc. and less than relaxing if that's not your style. There is plenty of access to the ocean from the cliffs at Rockhouse, if that's what you're after.
Finally, the sunsets at the Rockhouse are priceless and even if you are unable to book a room at this marvelous place, I suggest to anyone visiting Negril that they go the Rockhouse at 5 pm for Happy Hour drinks by the pool, with dinner at their restaurant to follow (make reservations!).
