Highs & Lows

  • The Spa on the property for a super relaxing treatment.

  • 7:30am yoga class every morning outside by the pool.

  • The Rockhouse foundation! Through its efforts the Rockhouse foundation was able to fully renovate and expand the Negril all-age Public School and Library. The Rockhouse foundation and Hotel have invested over $1m in these projects and associated support programs.

  • It's an hour and a half long drive from the airport and about $80 when using their car service, though safety is worth the money. All the drivers are very friendly, and if you're lucky you learn a bit of Jamaican history along the way.

  • The bar and restaurant close quite early, but maybe that's a good thing.

  • Wifi is not always working or only works in certain areas of the property. It didn't work in our room. But...also a good thing.
