I have just returned from my stay at Jamaica Tamboo and I have to say that Martine and the rest of the staff made me feel like I was staying with family. Like every hotel I have stayed at there were a few hiccups. Martine went out of her way to make sure that we were ok. The hotel is... More

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.
