How it Ranks: Rockhouse Hotel ranks #13 out of 459 Jamaica Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews.
- #13 in Best Jamaica Hotels
Our Take: RockHouse Hotel gets its name from its rocky surroundings, which play into every aspect of this boutique hotel that sits just over two miles west of Negril. Its 39 air-conditioned villas and guestrooms are built directly into the volcanic stone of Pristine Cove, and contain mosquito-netted four-poster beds and eco-friendly solar heaters. Some villas even seem to be rising directly from the waves—recent guests appreciate the seclusion of their private wraparound balconies and open-air showers that meld seamlessly into the rocks. Like RockHouse's accommodations, its restaurants' appearances and offerings reflect the bays and coves of Jamaica. Guests can enjoy a crab turnover in the airy, open dining room at RockHouse Restaurant, or savor peppered shrimp—a Jamaican street favorite—atop Pirates Cave in the new Pushcart Restaurant (though some guests think the restaurants are quite expensive). Even RockHouse's spa takes cues from its surroundings—guests can indulge in cliff-side spa treatments like the invigorating Blue Mountain Coffee Scrub or the Caribbean Drench, which mimics a Jamaican downpour.
