Rockhouse hotel is an amazing property. Located cliffside in Negril, Jamaica, it is a boutique hotel in an amazing setting. We stayed in one of the regular villas. We were located at the end of a small inlet, which made for amazing views and a feeling of seclusion even though there were multiple other villas around. The Villa was comfortable with a nice bed. The open air shower was a nice touch as well. The property is nicely landscaped, with the native rocks making up the walkways and walls, and a plethora of foliage present to make it seem very isolated. Rockhouse has its own coral reef, and had a multitude of small ladders leading into the water to go snorkeling (of course, you're welcome to jump off the wall as well if you prefer). Given that it's cliffside, there are no beaches at this hotel. It's only a minor drawback in my opinion, as the cliff setting is definitely a unique experience and Seven Mile Beach is only a short taxi ride away. The staff was amazing- very friendly and helpful without exception. The food was also terrific. There is the Pushcart restaurant, the Rockhouse restaurant, and the pool bar. I can say every meal was great the whole time we were there. The few times we ate off property during are stay showed me that the food at Rockhouse was definitely superior.
