Nights are lively too with evening entertainment at the new bar offering a trendy beach club vibe.

Spotless, welcoming, fantastic service from every single staff member, managers on site chatting to guest. We could not have asked for more from the hotel and the staff. Fantastic vibes and being a smaller hotel it was nice to get to mix with the other guests. Location is superb, chilled area with enough going on locally for food, drink and shopping. Bus stop and taxi depot across the road meaning easy travel into Bridgetown, Oistens or further afield. We would absolutely recommend this hotel and will, without a doubt, be returning. Read less

The hotel is very relaxing, clean fresh air, beautiful picturesque surroundings & great people. The ambiance of a warm welcome added to a much needed well deserved vacation and that indeed was what I was able to enjoy. I have and will always continue to recommend the newly renovated The Rockley.

In the past, I stayed at the Hilton or Radisson but the staff and services were beyond excellent. The room was comfortable with ocean view. I want to compliment some of the staff, Deidre. Courtney, Romero at the bar, Jaquan and the hotel manager for quickly resolving any issue. I will be staying at South Beach hotel on my next visit.
