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!

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

We spent 3 sleepless nights at Tamboo Resort. Right next door is a venue that has unbelievably loud music! Night 1 - music stopped about 3:30am; Night 2 - music stopped at dawn; Night 3 - music stopped about 3:30am. The owners of Tamboo are trying to do something about it but so far no luck. As far as the... More

Where do I start? I came across this lil gem in paradise by accident. I have been traveling to Jamaica every year for the past 11 years but this year was the best. This year was such a blast, I had to return 6 weeks later. I had some trouble with my flight and was not able to arrive at... More
