We don’t know who would bother with the big, sterile Jamaican resorts; the smart travelers get themselves westward, to Negril, and to the Rockhouse, a tiny collection of villas stretching along the cliff’s edge at Pristine Cove (a location as aptly named as any you’ll find). ‘Funky’ may be the single most overused word in the boutique hotel dictionary, but in this case, it’s called for—no other word so precisely sums up the Rockhouse’s effortless vintage-shop cool.

And the cliffside location is key to the appeal—this is literally Jamaica’s westernmost point, and it’s possible you’ve never seen a proper sunset until you’ve seen one here. The villas are the most spacious accommodations, with private terraces and outdoor showers, some with loft space for an extra double bed, and hang over the edge of Pristine Cove, for the most dramatic water views. Studios and standards are less spectacular, but all feature four-poster beds with muslin netting, and ceiling fans to keep things cool.

The idea of a horizon pool is hardly a novel one, but this one is striking, sixty feet long, carved into the bluff, and it seems to stretch all the way to Mexico. The poolside bar is where the social scene is, and the restaurant serves Jamaican and European dishes on a terrace over the sea.

There’s a beach relatively nearby, but for swimming or snorkeling, there’s a series of ladders descending into the cove, and afterward, the spa offers yoga classes and in-room treatments. For a taste of the urban life, Negril’s outdoor nightclubs and slapdash jerk shacks are a short ride down West End Road; here you'll come in close contact with the locals, whose schools and library, incidentally, have seen upgrades thanks to the Rockhouse Foundation.

Please note, children 12 and older are welcome at the hotel.
