First, let me tell you that the Rock House is the best hotel on the West End of Negril. On the drive in from the Mobay airport we passed all the major hotels and the Rock House is by far the most beautiful. They took great care in the design of the place so that while you are within it’s walls, you feel like you are paradise. My husband and I JUST returned from there like 2 days ago and it was so relaxing. Upon checking in we found out that we had been upgraded to a Premuim Villa from the regular one we booked. Woo Hoo! The premium villa was amazing. We could not believe how nice it was, right on the water with a private deck out front. I wish we had seen the regular villas in person. I think we might be spoiled now and won’t want to book anything less than the premium room. The property is very large, about 2-3 blocks long so if you have a room on either far end, prepare for a long walk to get to other areas.
I’ve read lots of reviews that said the food service there was super slow but we didn’t have that experience. While service was timely, the food was just eeh. We are from Chicago and have jerk chicken spots all over the place so I would say we’ve eaten a lot of GOOD jerk. The food in general at all 3 of the restaurants on site was just ok. My favorite dish was the morning porridge. SOOO GOOD! It’s also expensive to eat and drink there. They add 2 types of taxes to EVERYTHING you do so it adds up. My advice would be to sleep and relax there but venture down the road a bit to grab food, cheap rum, and $1.50 red stripes instead of paying $3.50 from the hotel. Don’t be afraid to leave the hotel. There are a few restaurants within walking distance and it’s safe to walk.
