Now named The Rockley hotel. What a great week my family and friends had at this hotel. All the staff were so friendly and helpful and with a big shout out to Romario behind the bar for his great cocktails and laughs we had with him, it really made the week to have a great team working at this hotel. The whole hotel kept clean all the time and lovely design walls ,art work and hanging chairs finished off its great atmosphere. ( my wife bought one of the art pictures) Breakfast was simple but this just meant all of it was fresh and cooked to a great standard. My favourite being ordered poached eggs on toast every day was amazing. The pool looks small on the pictures but is perfect being long to give space for the kids at one end and people sunbathing at the other with out getting to crowded. Sunbeds and seating was easily found at any time of the day. Towels service was great just pop in basket and ask reception for new. Troy kept the kids entertained with games , activities and film nites etc. Even meet the team nite with free rum punch with was my favourite drink of the week. The rooms were great and a good size so not on top of each and cramped in other like some hotels, air conditioning was ice cold and easy to adjust if needed with separate controls in the bedroom. Room cleaned everyday to a high standard so a big thanks to the cleaning staff as well. If I was to recommend anything would be banks beer in bottles in stead of cans ( just my preference), bar to stay open to 11 as we would have had another drink when we got back most nights after 10 ( sorry bartenders if they make u stay later 😂) and may be iced glasses for the beer as love a beer in a ice glass. I know they are going through this hotel modernisation bit by bit at the moment so hopefully next time I come it’s even better. Overall a great hotel and a great team of staff, not too overcrowded and everything kept to a high standard, thanks for a great week after our cruise and hope to see you again soon☀️🏖️🍺

Hotel is directly across the road from beautiful Rockley Beach . ( towels supplied by the Hotel for pool or beach use as well as free sun beds on the beach the only thing you pay for are umbrellas ) The Hotel is clean and well maintained . From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome , all staff were outstanding , informative and ,friendly . Book the Island tour with Troy who is based at the hotel. It was great to be in his company and to get to know the other guests. Who incidentally all said they will be returning . A trip to see the race horses having their bath on Pebble Beach is a must , although an early start ( between 5-7am) it is definitely worth it a lovely lady sets up a tea and coffee stall on the beach so you can have a cuppa whilst watching this amazing sight. Also a visit to Oistins the fishing village should not be missed on a Friday Evening , it gets very busy , tables are laid out and you can sit and join in whilst they serve you fish cuts (sandwiches) rice chicken and peas and various other authentic meals. People are dancing it’s just a lovely place to see everyone chilling out and enjoying themselves.

The Rockley (formerly South Beach Hotel) is a fabulous boutique hotel & I had a wonderful stay. It was my second visit. They took care of me from the moment I arrived and I was greeted with warmth and smiles, not to mention a fruit punch and a cold towel! The rooms are lovely and have lots of new furnishings and artwork as part of the rebrand to The Rockley. I stayed in a one bedroom suite that was large, spacious and modern. The bed was very comfortable, linen & towels changed regularly and the room was kept spotlessly clean. The hotel helped me order groceries for my arrival - all very efficient. The pool area is small but there were always enough sunbeds and it had a relaxed vibe. The beach is just across the road and the hotel provides sunbed vouchers & towels and there is just a small charge for a beach umbrella. There are staff on hand from the beach bars whenever you want a drink or snack. The pool bar is friendly - with great cocktails. I stayed on a bed & breakfast basis and enjoyed my breakfast with poached eggs cooked to order. The location couldn’t be better, close to the beach, shops, bars & restaurants and the lovely boardwalk for those evening strolls. There are local buses running outside the hotel so access to the rest of the island is easy. The hotel has a weekly Manager’s cocktail party & Troy arranges a boardwalk walk, a tour of the island and fun activities by the pool. I would highly recommend the island tour - a perfect day that I will never forget. The whole team at the Rockley are so welcoming, efficient and friendly - nothing is too much trouble. It’s hard to single anyone out - I would just say - keep doing what you are doing!! I can’t recommend this hotel highly enough - I would come back in a heartbeat - hopefully very soon!!Thank you to the team at The Rockley.

We stayed here for a week after our cruise and had a lovely stay, nice to have a small boutique hotel with a personal touch. Fantastic area to base yourself. Check-in was a warm welcome and a drink, the room was lovely and the bed!  we slept so well! We didnt have an issue with the road noise and we were right over reception facing the road.  Cleanliness was OK, we kept coming back to find new features being added, a new rug, plant etc. Air con was good and check-out with a complimentary room to shower and change, the lady on reception was a diamond as we didnt realise we had to book to be honest all the reception staff were lovely.  The area was perfect for us and we grabbed a reggae bus everywhere and super cheap, always got a sunbed by the pool and a complimentary one by the sea. We ate a couple of lunches at the hotel and had breakfast everyday and asked for eggs different ways, the young lad behind the bar and the young lady serving breakfast (bar and lunch) were really helpful and always had a smile. Breakfast for us was adequate no complaints (ok needed better coffee). It was our 34th wedding anniversary. Couple of bits - we did feed this back on form so was completely upfront for construxtive feedback. * unfortunately we arrived a couple of hours early so had to wait around and we were the last to get into our room after check in time. Also we saw others being offered cooling towels so little inconsistencies. *bath towels didnt go round us too small - think someone else mentioned this too (I am average sized!) *no net curtain on window and considering where our room was there was a lack of privacy when we opened the curtains (not good when a towel doesn't fit 🤣) *washer didnt work on our floor *needed a magnifying mirror for shaving and putting make up on as mirror was too far away. *paying for a coke to get it out of a bottle - for the prices paid need to offer cans/small invi bottles, we ended up heading over to the road to get drinks as cheaper. We would have loved to have stayed round the bar more. All in all would definitely recommend and would come back, only little niggles above but when paying a lot of money it's important to get it right. Lastly the manager you are a real asset and shows you love the hotel and take time out for guests.

Loved this hotel for its location and the staff were amazing. Hotel was very clean and it had good facilities. It didn’t have a big pool but you could get tickets for free sun beds on the beach. Only down side was the selection of hot food for breakfast. We would have no hesitation in returning to the now Rockley Hotel.

Although only a small hotel it was a pleasure to stay here. Great location. All rooms have a decent view. Staff friendly and helpful. Very clean in all areas. Very laid back and you dont have the hustle and bustle of a large 200/300 room hotel. Washing machines and dryers on each floor. Perfect when you have been on a cruise previously. Nice pool and bar area and close to most facilities anyone would want. Breakfast a little disappointing but would not affect us returning to this hotel. Would highly recommend.

We stayed here for 1 night only but found the experience lovely. the staff were so helpful and friendly. very accommodating and eager to make your stay as best as possible for you .The main receptionists of Troy,Janice, Ingid and Rose. were delightful and so charming. The customer service is second to none. They are a great first impression to the hotel.we were welcomed with a scented hot towel to freshen up.. Our room was very nice,modern clean and fully air conned. The bed was so comfortable and gave us a wonderful rested sleep. The shower was very easy to use and shampoo / conditioner and shower gel was provided. Breakfast was just the right amount of choice and all looked fresh and appealing. We enjoyed fruit,toast,yogurt,eggs and tea and coffee. juices were also available. We sat in the garden surrounded by the warmth and the sun. It was very relaxing and calm. We were sad to go as this hotel gave us a special experience whereby all the staff were so helpful and memorable. I would recommendt his hotel as it is situated opposite the beach in a good location.iI hope to return in the future with my kids as I feel like its definitely worth the experience. Thankyou for an enjoyable stay! Just an after thought, the only thing I can say is it would be nice to have hand gel by the sink in the bathroom and a kettle in the kitchen so we could make a hot drink. those two things would make it perfect

From start to finish our stay was amazing. The hotel room was spotless, spacious and the kitchen area had everything you would need if you wanted cater in room. In short the hotel amenities were first class! The location is excellent too…across the road from a beautiful beach and within walking distance of restaurants, bars and shops. But what makes the hotel special is the staff especially Troy. His trip around the island is a great day out. We saw all the main attractions, sampled local food and had a lovely picnic included in the price too! (Not forgetting the rum punch! And our driver Ryan!) Thank you The Rockley (formally South Beach) for a superb holiday!
