We did not stay here. We were her for live band. Roots Bamboo on Wednesday night is always our first choice for Live Reggae. In Negril, different beach clubs host live music. Memorize the hot spots for the week. For years, the schedule has been the same, but each year we ask locals on the beach if the schedule has... More

If your looking for a place that wont break your bank account, this is the place to stay! Right in the middle of seven mile beach. Great people to take care of you and make you want to stay for ever. They have a bar and place to eat by the bar or in your room.

I have been to Roots Bamboo plenty of times for the music venue at night but this was my first actual stay at the hotel. We decided to book a room for the New Year holiday due to the convenient location on the beach. There are several varieties of rooms to choose from but with it being so crowded on... More

I stopped at Roots and it had a great relaxed vibe going on with a local band playing both the classic raggae music and more modern music of their own. I had both Stripes and top shelf liquor there. The area is slow in sept but there was still a good mix of tourists and locals there enjoying the evening.

Been there during the Dream Weekend,it's been the perfect base. Located on the main road next to 7-Mile-Beach it's pretty close to everything but a quiet place als well. Short ways to the parties,cheap and clean rooms,friendly staff and of course what else to say: It's Negril! ;)

I think people are disappointed with their accommodations when they haven't fully prepared themselves for their own needs. I did my homework on Roots & knew what I should expect and my expectations were met. In a rustic setting, if you fail to ask for something, you won't get it. Therefore there's nobody to blame but yourself. Negril never disappoints... More

It's not for everyone, but if you are looking for a homey, laid back vibe then this is the place. Do not expect 5 star service, but expect friendly faces and helpful people everywhere. The room was basic, 2 beds and a bathroom and a fridge, the AC was on point, and the food was delicious. They will probably not... More

Recent stay of 8 days at this place and would not return. We are 17 year travellers to the Negril area and have stayed at mostly inexpensive places. This one just didn't even come close to doing it for us. Just did not feel as if customer / guest service was remotely important to the owners at all. From check... More

If you can get a room with A/C and a kitchenette it is worth the extra money. Cottages are close together, and it is a lot of fun if you get along with your neighbors. The property has a great "homey" feeling. Lots of people just chilling on their porches. Beach is great, although beach chairs are wooden. Bring your... More

Funky set of bungalows. I had fan bungalow that had twin beds and lovely porch to hang out. It is basically just next to the beach but has no fence so you might experience a lot of harassment. I actually even had difficulties being left alone on my own porch but well, that is Jamaica. For me first and last... More
