We have visited this hotel on several occasions over last few years and it remains our favourite in The Bahamas. Tranquil setting and impeccable service. The evening dining experience is second to none - sophisticated food but relaxed environment. Ely and his team were excellent and catering off menu for my vegetarian wife was appreciated. We will be back. Patrick...

Wonderful small hotel with nice pool and spectacular food. We stayed in the Monkey Room which was small and dark. My wife said that it was noisy as the kitchen is nearby, and the activities there begin early in the morning. My hearing is a bit compromised, so I wasn't really bothered by it. The room was nicely appointed and...

Before we start, this was a holiday of a lifetime. We're not a super-rich family, this was a treat, so it had to be perfect. And it was. Rock House get it right.

We stayed for five nights in their Commodore Suite during December and will definitely not return under any circumstances.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Rock House is a luxury 10 room boutique hotel on Harbour Island, Bahamas. Our fine dining restaurant has one of the best sunset views of the bay. Personal service and unmatched attention to every detail.Rock House has been a vibrant and colourful feature of the Harbour Island landscape since the early 1940's. Originally a private home, then a Bed and Breakfast and for many years a rental property, Rock House today has evolved to become the standard for elegance, island sophistication and superior service. Fodor's Choice, Condé Nast, Travel & Leisure and Tripadvisor award winner.In July 2002, Rock House caught the interest of the well-known South Florida builder J. Wallace Tutt III. Tutt and business partner Don Purdy, who had already created the successful Hotel Impala in South Beach and worked on commissions for Cher and the late Gianni Versace, had a vision of transforming the property into a luxury boutique hotel. The bar and dining experience at Rock House warrant special and distinct mention offering fine dining under the stars on the pool patio, at our select Chef's Table or on the Terrace overlooking the bay - you can be assured of the perfect cocktail, a superb wine list and delectable menu choices, all served by an attentive yet unobtrusive staff. ... more   less
