We attended a wedding at the Rockwater Resort and booked a room for ourselves and a 3 bedroom cabin for our extended family 3 months in advance. Rockwater's policy is to charge for your room at the time of booking. When we arrived we were told that the resort was full and they offered accommodation 10 minutes away. We refused to accept their offer as we were attending a wedding. Our room was a large one bedroom suite overlooking the pool. I stayed here 25 years ago when the resort was called Lord Jim's - it hasn't changed much - definitely hasn't been updated. The 3 bedroom cabin with one very small bathroom was "rustic" at best. The mattresses in the cabin were so worn you could lose yourself in them. Needless to say that if you didn't have back problems before you slept on these mattresses you most likely would after sleeping on them. On a positive note the setting is exceptional and the food at the wedding was very good. We'd recommend a lunch or late afternoon cocktails as the view is worth the visit. We wouldn't recommend staying here as it is terribly over priced. They are charging 5 star prices for 2 star (at best) rooms.
