My family had the pleasure of staying with the Edwards family for four days on our recent trip to Guyana. Rock View is a unique oasis captained by the charming raconteur Colin Edwards who by equal combination of will and joie de vivre has created a civilized retreat in a unique area. The lodge is located quite near where the...

Rock View Lodge was the nicest and most comfortable lodge I stayed at during my 12-day tour of Guyana. The grounds are lovely; the rooms are comfortable; the food is great and there is a nice bar area away from the main lodge that doubles as a shop for people from the village of Annai. There is an airstrip at...

Spent a couple of nights here. Was great to relax in the middle of a busy schedule. Staff are all fantastic. Colin has done a great job with the gardens. Room and food excellent. Enjoyed a swim in the pool during the heat of the day. Also enjoyed our sundowner drinks.. Would visit again.

RV Lodge is paradise. Beautiful scenary and lovely food. Perfect for bird watchers and lovers of beautiful flowers. Worth to book directly with them, as tour operator's prices are double the price. Great way to relax after visiting the other lodges. As they are in the interior, eletricity is via generator, therefore they have it on during the morning and...

We were welcomed by members of the owner's family and they all seemed to have a good, family-style rapport with the staff. The ladies in the kitchen even agreed to demo the preparation of our favourite dishes. The rooms were well equipped with electricity available at key points in the day. There were cosy hammocks on the charming terraces for...

This review is based purely on the kindness of slightly eccentric but ever the English gentleman, Colin. Guyana is geared to the wealthy tourist and as a backpacker I found it difficult to find affordable accommodation. Upon arrival at Rock View, Colin realised my predicament and was generous to put me up in a manner I could afford. Colin and...
