The only successful and worth while resort n Guyana. The Edwards bring you into their home and family, you have to experience the hospitality, warmth and friendliness. Meals and service are exceptional. The attractions and outings are well planned and interesting. The convenience of air landing at the resort and the proximity to the Canopy Walkway and Iwokrama and even... More

We stayed 3 nights on a bird watching holiday. What to say in addition to the great bird watching particularly the Burrowing Owl. It truly is an oasis in the outback. Beautifully layed out, great accomodation, tasty food (much grown on site) and drink, especially the rum punches/ caiparinia with home roasted cashew nuts. Everybody was charming and helpful and...

Stayed two nights at Rock View and enjoyed the entire stay. The owner, Colin Edwards, lives on the property and goes out of his way to be a gracious host. All the meals are included and the food was excellent. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The grounds are well kept. They grow most of their vegetables and have... More

Unfortunately, we only stayed here one night. It really deserves two or three nights - either during the middle and/or at the end of any tour of the Rupununi. Collin Edwards the proprietor has carved out a wonderful spot in the northern Rupununi. It is adjacent to the Anai airfield which makes it very convenient. This is a small airfield... More

Rock view is a little bit if luxury in the Rupununi. The pool was just right for a nice dip. The food was excellent and all the staff were very efficient. The setting is great and very conveniently situated if you fly in or out of Annai. There's plenty to see if you stay for a day or two.

Rock View lodge was the worst place we stayed in Guyana. Yes it may have good food and more comfort than some of the other lodges but the attitude of the owner Colin (he is English), to his staff was disgusting. He treats them like dirt. He also condones the idea that having wild animals as pets is OK (he... More

What a 24 hours at this great place. Wish I had more. From the time I arrived to the time I departed I felt I was a part of an ongoing mission by Colin and the people of Rock View. Dinner was an event and not a meal. Great food and wonderful conversations that took me back in time and... More

Colin his staff and family couldn't have made us more welcome. Paradise is the word I would use to describe Rock View. The food was excellent and the setting perfect. Would love to return one day. My wife wanted to bring Hendricks back to the UK.

Owner Colin and his family made us very welcome and looked after us extremely well. Travelling in the interior of Guyana can be a little hard going at times and Rock View provided some much needed comfort and a lovely swimming pool to cool off in! The bedrooms are comfortable and nicely decorated. The lodge grounds are a green oasis,... More

We stayed at this establishment as part of a Birdwatching holiday. The welcome that we received from the charming Colin and his family and staff was quite a surprise, a very English affair with pre-dinner drinks and super cuisine at dinner. Many preserves and hot sauces made locally available. Good breakfast with homemade preserves, lovely. The rooms were comfortable but... More
