Stopped by Jamaica Tamboo for another one of their fantastic lobster pizzas. There were 4 of us, and I don't remember what everyone else had - I was too busy eating my pizza as slowly as I could so it would last as long as it could. big chunks of perfectly cooked lobster and all the rest of the fixings...

Property is on the beach, rooms are good size and clean. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. This is not a large property and not all inclusive which means you have choices and can enjoy the whole of Negril. Breakfast is included, lunck and dinner are available. Strongly recommend for those not looking for all inclusive.

It is right on the beach and I stayed in room 29 and it had a gorgeous view from the balcony. The staff is amazing and very accommodating to anything that you need....
