Rockhouse Hotel – Jamaica

Sitting on top of a cliff with protected waters the Rockhouse Hotel is the place to experience paradise. It has a rustic vibe but has all the necessary amenities that anyone would need. Cliffside villas where you can jump directly into the sea, great onsite restaurant, and water so calm that it looks like glass… what more can you ask for. Please just take my money… We are already planning our trip back. 

We arrive late and miss the sunset. The area is famous for its sunsets, but we spent too much time at the Pelican Bar but no worries I will save it for next time. So we go eat at the onsite restaurant called Push Cart the food is spot on, even for locals.

They have live music so you need to be ok with some loud music. There are other options in the hotel. 2. IMG_0761

After checkin our group went for a swim at the hotel pool and we were lucky to see a lighting show for a few hours. A friend actually took this pic. We got super lucky as we went after the summer which mean hurricane season – thus the lighting show – but we had sunny weather while we were there. 7. IMG_1082

The water is flat… the swimming area is protected on many sides so there are no waves. 21. IMG_0791

The water color changes from dark blue to light blue as the sun rises… 22. IMG_0792

I get hungry and order room service… I did not want to leave my villa. 23. IMG_0800

Each Villa has dedicated deck space but not off limits to hotel guests. 24. IMG_0808

I go for a walk to check out the hotel… and the beautiful stonework is everywhere…. 25. IMG_081125. IMG_0812

They have deck lounge chairs by the cliffs all over the hotel… 26. IMG_081327. IMG_0814

Life vests are nice to have as this hotel does not have a beach or a place you can rest in the water. You have to swim all the way… 43. IMG_0488

Hats are a must… IMG_0534

Back to the villa…IMG_0864

Enjoying the view before check out… IMG_0871IMG_0867

This the gift shop building… IMG_0910

The entrance / exit… we are already planning a trip back to this place…. IMG_0911

Make sure you ask for a Villa with water access, also one where you can jump would be even better. Also Villas away from the restaurants would be preferred as it has high traffic. IMG_1184
