What an amazing place! From the spectacular and smart design of the facilities to the service ethic of the staff, the Rockhouse knows how to do a resort experience! We had a standard room, which was fine for our needs (though I think we'll do a bungalow next time for the terrace experience). The outside shower is a fantastic idea! The pool area is beautiful; we went out early every morning before it officially opened and it was so peaceful. The bar staff at the pool were great too (shout out to Chevon!) with snorkeling equipment available for $5 a day. I thought I would miss the beach but the ocean swimming in the cove was amazing.
We had meals at both Rockhouse and Pushcart that were great...some issues with service and overdone lobster on our first night but the hotel manager was amazingly accommodating and handled our issues immediately. Definitely have the banana pancakes at Rockhouse for breakfast and the Dapper Snapper there too; at Pushcart the jerk pork was dynamite! Enjoyed meeting locals on the West End Rd too. Must also compliment the amazing service of Kenny Tours, who catered to our every taxi need, even back and forth to Mo Bay airport (thanks Kenny!)
And the spa?!! Out of this world unbelievable! We had a couples massage one morning overlooking the ocean in a private bungalow...it was just as amazing as it sounds!
Overall we both agreed that this was one of the best vacations either of us have ever had and we hope to make this a yearly adventure at Rockhouse. I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else; they just do it right!
