Things to See and Do While Staying at Rockhouse Hotel

Rockhouse Hotel offers a nice selection of recreational activities, which lively travelers will certainly want to take advantage of throughout their time in Jamaica.

Rockhouse Hotel has one pool. Lounging at the only pool might not be an essential part of your vacation, but it can be a refreshing way to unwind and relax. A lot of visitors prefer to visit the closest beach, even when a swimming pool is located on site. The closest beach to the property is Negril North Beach, which is one and a quarter miles away. For an even more comfortable way to enjoy the water, you might like the whirlpool on-site.


Despite the fact that Rockhouse Hotel doesn't have a golf course, it's possible that you could make arrangements to play a round or two during your stay. The closest golf course is Negril Hills Golf Club, which you'll find three and a half miles to the east of this accommodation. It has a total of 18 holes. The course is a par 72, with a total length of 5798 yards. If you'd like more information or want to inquire about the possibility of reserving a tee time, you can reach the course at (876) 957-4638 ext. 3614.


For scuba diving enthusiasts, the two large reefs run parallel to the West End cliffs and four smaller reefs along the beach offer lots of underwater adventure. There are many interesting dives with ample opportunities to view ocean life like octopus, stingray, soft and hard coral, and the occasional turtle. There are also several sunken wrecks including two planes and a tugboat to explore. Some of the more popular novice dives include the Throne Room, the Arches, and Shallow Plane. For more advanced divers there are dives to Deep Plane and Kingfish points. There are a number of local Scuba operators who provide free pickup and drop off from the hotel and offer the full range of experiences from the resort dive course dive for everyone from the beginner to advanced certification courses.
