View far better than rooms
Southern end of Long Beach, on the headland, Perhentian Kecil T: (012) 325 2162, (011) 1699 5013
Wrapped around the headland at the far southern end of Long Beach, D'Rock Garden Resort offers some of the best elevated views over the ocean on Long Beach from a mix of basic and more slightly comfortable duplex bungalows scattered across the slope.
The majority of the rooms are in the higher air-con price bracket while the remaining fan-cooled rooms are wedged into a small quarter up behind the restaurant with reduced views -- we don't expect these to be around for many more seasons. The fancier rooms are quite smart by Long Beach standards and deliver on great views, but some rooms really need some new linen and the bathrooms can be grotty. Also, bear in mind the "fanciest" bungalows are a long walk from the restaurant and the ocean further still -- pack your own sherpa and not ideal for small kids. D'Rock has a large elevated open-air restaurant delivering (very slowly) typical fare for the area.
