I frequently visit Jamaica, this was the first time by West End. My husband and I chose Rockhouse Hotel because of the reviews from Trip Advisor and the cost. We stayed in one of the Premium Villas. This hotel was ideal. The food from the restaurant was superb! I had the grill squid with jerk sauce and jerk chicken and my husband had the soup and steak. We had breakfast there every morning, there was great variety as i was able to have something different each morning. The only complaint we had was with the pool bar, they took almost an hour to serve us 2 sandwiches, which i thought was way too long.
The water was really nice and snorkling in the waters at and around Rockhouse was great. We were able to see a baby stingray, lionfish, and hundreds of reef fish and losts of different types of coral, because of this we didn't take any of the snorkling trips people were selling.
Overall Rockhouse is a great place for both a family vacation and romantic vacation!
P.S> Some vacationers mentioned that the minute they stepped out of Rockhouse they were bombarded with people trying to sell them stuff, in my experience once you tell them no thinks politely, they don't harass you.
