I stayed here with my family for my birthday/family vacation. It was first my time in Negril and the staff, combined with the locale made it an amazing experience. Jamaica Tamboo is right next to the beach. They offer an amazing complimentary jamaican breakfast or the option of a made to order breakfast at their bar/restaurant which is right next... More

What a disappointment. We have traveled extensively and never experienced such a place. The place backed up to a strip club and our first night there, some locals did a lap dance on a guest of the hotel in the dining area. Sitting on the beach incurred constant harassment by locals selling their wares. Some were very pleasant but it... More

It was my first time visiting Negril and I must say that my experience at Jamaica Tamboo Resort was like no other. The resort is clean, the rooms are comfortable and cozy, showers are hot and the location is fantastic! The beauty of this resort is that you walk out of your hotel room and you are on the beach....

I just checked out of the Tamboo 2/26...I was VERY impressed. I knew the week was going to start off great when I heard Luciano was playing there the night I checked in...Awesome! I was checked into room 29 on the second floor with an unobstructed ocean view. The value of the hotel coupled with its pristine location and friendly... More

Stayed at Tamboo again last week and was even more impressed. Service was amazing. Rooms have been renovated and the staff (as usual ) was so accommodating. This was just a quick trip with friends and this was just what we needed. People from other hotels come to Tamboo just to enjoy the atmosphere. Can't wait to return in the... More

Keep away from this place, the staff is good and try their best but everything else is really poor. You have a stripclubb next door, so forget about sleep until at least 04.00. The rooms are old and u will need a plumber now and then... Nothing is really clean, all the sheets and towels are stained no matter how... More

Moved to Tamboo from Alfred's since they actually had nice rooms with AC. The bathrooms were a huge improvement too. The location, though in close proximity to Alfred's, seems to attract more breeze from the ocean and hence is pleasanter, even when it is hot. The staff went out of their way to make our stay a very enjoyable experience.... More

Resort was clean and nice. Love the idea of waking up near the ocean! The staff was very helpful and friendly! The only negative was the clean towels that looked stained. When asked for new ones they kindly gave us a new set. The lobster pizza was to die for!

We stayed at the Tamboo from the 29th of July to Aug. 1st. Upon arrival, we were met by a very cold receptionist who did not explain the amenities or anything. This would be helpful to first time visitors. The Internet was down so we could not pay via credit card. The receptionist did nothing to help our situation since... More
