I stayed at roots for one night this past week....For the price I paid, I can't complain too much....For 50 bucks I knew I wasn't in line for anything fancy. All my other reviews have been all excellent so I'm not nitpicky. I didn't care about the no AC or TV....Ive been to Negril 22 times so I've had a... More

We stayed a week at Roots Bamboo in Negril and will not go back again.Between the bar and the other residents, there wasn't much quiet time for sleeping. If you don't like the smell of Ganga, then don't stay here, however, if you want to party and smoke Ganga all day and most of the night every day and night,... More

My fiancé and I had the pleasure of staying here over the Valentine's holiday. The resort has a great, laid back,"no frills" vibe that we fell in live with! Keep in mind that I am a rather spoiled American who travels extensively to mostly 4 and 5 star resorts. Roots Bamboo was certainly outside the scope of the places we... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at roots bamboo for two nights late January 2015. We stayed in one of the newly constructed rooms and we were pleasantly surprised at how clean and nice everything was. For the price, it is by far the best deal that we found in Negril. However, the reason I gave this resort an average rating... More

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.

This place has undergone major transformation and am loving it; making its' mark of been one of negril's top spot in entertainment and food. The staff is... More

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
