Rose Hall è ampiamente considerata come una casa visivamente impressionante ed è la più famosa della Giamaica. Si tratta di un palazzo in stile [[Architettura Georgiana Giamaicana|georgiano giamaicano]] con una base in pietra e un piano superiore intonacato, in alto sulla collina, con una vista panoramica sulla costa. È stata costruita nel 1770 con un costo di circa £ 30.000<ref name="Hakewill">Hakewill J. (1825), ''A Picturesque Tour of the island of Jamaica, from drawings made in the years 1820 and 1821 (1825).</ref> e successivamente divenne proprietà di John Palmer. <!-- Hakewill visitò l'edificio e scrisse:
 
:''"It is placed at a delightful elevation, and commands a very extensive sea view. Its general appearance has much of the character of a handsome Italian villa. A double flight of stone steps leads to an open portico, giving access to the entrance hall; on the left of which is the eating-room, and on the right the drawing-room, behind which are other apartments for domestic uses. The right wing, fitted up with great elegance, and enriched with painting and gilding, was the private apartment of the late Mrs. Palmer, and the left wing is occupied as servants’servants' apartments and offices. The principal staircase, in the body of the house, is a specimen of joinery in mahogany and other costly woods seldom excelled, and leads to a suite of chambers in the upper story."''<ref>[[S:Page:A Picturesque Tour of the Island of Jamaica.djvu/101|''A Picturesque Tour of the Island of Jamaica'']] at Wikisource</ref>

Rose Hall è stata riportata al suo antico splendore con un restauro nel 1960. <!-- It is decorated with silk wallpaper printed with palms and birds, ornamented with chandeliers and furnished with mostly European antiques. There is a bar downstairs and a restaurant.
