Dusk is, what I like to call, the "filet of the day." The temperature cools off, the sunlight becomes softer, cocktail hour begins as the light show of the sun and sky commences. Negril is the furthest west town in Jamaica. It is no wonder the sunsets are spectacular!! Pull up a chair around the Rockhouse pool and stare off to the West. You will not be disappointed.

Ocean front chillin in Jamaica
A short flight from NYC followed by a pretty 2 hour drive from Montego Bay airport will bring you to Rockhouse Resort. Jutting out of the western tip of Negril, the charming bungalows overlooking crystal clear water will immediately transform you to vacation mode and complete relaxation. The friendly owners, staff and guests alike are all as happy to be there as you will be and you'll quickly settle into a great island vibe.
Who needs variety when you can get some of the freshest and best snapper in the Caribbean, delivered daily to the hotel for breakfast, lunch and dinner?! Negril is filled with great roadside jerk shacks, gourmet restaurants and typical tourist friendly hotel restaurants. But for a bit of all the above coupled with great nightly live music head to the Push Cart with great fresh food, very reasonable prices, and friendly staff.
Don't expect much in the way of coral, large fish or sea life. But the shadows cast by the intricate caves ringing the west side of Negril, great crystal clear waters and balmy temperatures make this a great place to lazily float around. No need to bring mask/fins unless you want to log a lap on the 1/2 mile swim lane ringing the hotel property. Daily morning yoga and laps in the crystal clear ocean water perfectly compliment the booze and food heavy afternoons.
