Best small hotel to stay in Negril. Been going there since 1992 and has never been disappointed. Would recommend to anyone. Very clean and Nuff vibes. Respect to the owner Denise....love what you are doing.

Roots Bamboo is... good souls, great vibes, incredible food and a staff that feels like family! My wife and I and many of our close friends have stayed at Roots Bamboo for 2+ weeks, for the last 7 years. Friends of ours, Barry and Mar (25+ years going to roots) were always insisting we come and try a week. We... More

Roots is a good spot to stay if you want to save money, but the main issue I have with the area is you get harassed on the beach by locals to buy things. I see your selling things I don't need people to hoot and holler at me or stand in my path as I am walking to try... More

This was absolutely the best of the best thing that you could ask for. It is literally 20 steps from the ocean. You can hear the waves all day and night. The porch gave you a birds eye view of everything going on up and down the beach. You never had to worry about coming out early to find your... More

My friends and I went to Jamaica August 14 –22, 2014 and stayed at Fun Holidays. We were excited to find out that Roots Bamboo was next door where we frequented a few nights. We enjoyed the entertainment and drinks but most of all enjoyed our server Fireman! Fireman took excellent care of us and ensured we were safe and... More

Don’t go there! Booking.com-reservation: "This room features a balcony with views of the Caribbean Sea". Reality: The first 2 days I had a balcony, but no views of the Caribbean Sea. Then I had to move to a hut next to the parking lot (no balcony and of course no views of the Caribbean Sea), where I stayed for 2... More

I usually give a fairly unbiased review of the places I have stayed... and I will attempt to do so here, however, I should warn the reader that we stayed at this property upon recommendation from family friends and thus were treated like family when we stayed. I am quite sure that they are very friendly to everyone (I didn't... More

Roots Bamboo was awesome, bartender and entire staff very friendly and welcoming. They had a live band and a bonfire; needless to say I had an awesome time. The food was very very good and I was with the most beautiful woman in the world.

I like Roots Bamboo as you get the true Jamaican feel. Everyone is friendly and makes you feel at home. The rooms are clean and they are quite reasonable. They are upgrading the place right now and making it even nicer. Will be back soon.
