Rockhouse Hotel

About this Hotel

Price From $125

Seclusion isn't easy to come by in the party town of Negril, but that's exactly what Rockhouse delivers, primarily to hip couples and families.

Rockhouse's rounded thatched villas are strung atop a low cliff carved with stairs that lead down to the warm waters of Pristine Cove.

The 19 units peeking out of the jungle right at the cliff's edge are expensive, but the long buildings set a bit farther back are easier to pull off—seven studios with sea views and nine standard rooms with garden views, all with minibars, safes, A/C, and mosquito netting around four-poster beds.

Guests chill out at the 60-foot horizon pool, take yoga classes, or stroll along the property's serpentine paths and stepping stones, which inevitably lead to quiet nooks, isolated beach chairs, and what most people say are the best sunset views in Jamaica.

The action on Seven Mile Beach—including the nightlife hub of Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville and live reggae on the beach at Alfred's (Tuesday, Friday, and Sunday) and Roots Bamboo (varies)—is a quick $5 to $10 cab ride away.

Closer to your cabana—right next door, actually—is Pirate's Cave, where patrons eat grilled lobster before jumping off the cliff and swimming into the sea cave underneath.
