Rockhouse is a favorite for hip New Yorker weekenders looking to get away in style. The hotel is always booked, testament to good marketing, quality service, well-maintained grounds, and competent management. The beautiful villas (US$295\350 low, US$355\425 high season) are perched on the cliffs with views out to sea. A total of 34 rooms include standards (US$125/160 low/high season) and studios (US$150/185 low/high season).
The Rockhouse Restaurant has a nice evening ambience. The coconut-battered shrimp is a recommendable starter.
Rockhouse Spa with eight individual rooms, offers massage, wraps, scrubs and holistic treatments using all-natural local ingredients. Two cliff-side treatment cabanas are used for massage to the sound of the waves.
Rockhouse took over Pirates Cave Restaurant located next door in early 2009, renaming it Pushcart Restaurant to promote a rootsy Jamaican vibe, referencing the traditional handcart commonplace at the country's open-air markets.
