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 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.

I went to Jamaica in Jan 2012 with my girlfriends and we came across Roots Bamboo. It is a great restaurant and club. Though we didn't stay there initially we checked out their accomodations and they are clean and inexpensive rooms. I went back solo in May and plan to return in August. The people are so friendly there. And... More

I have been to Jamaica 23 times since 1978, to Negril 20 times and I always found others that... More
