We visited November 2016 with another couple and loved it so much we took our parents back a few days later as we were on a family holiday staying at the Rui in Ocho Rios. I would honestly recommend this place to anyone visiting JA I had the red snapper and goat ravioli

Had a great day relaxing on the beach. Had a tasty lunch at Bamboo Blu restaurant with super friendly staff. Nicola was great and lovely to talk with. Very relaxed vibe. And Jason is the best lifeguard!

I should have followed recommendations to order either a shrimp or lobster dish because they looked amazing as they were delivered. Our waitress, Cassemie, was friendly and offered complimentary tasters as we were waiting. The setting is beautiful and we made it just in time to see the view in the daylight, as the sun was setting, and as they... More

We leased a villa, so sought out a location with a great beach & restaurant. This isn't the place. The beach and stands (in July) appeared abandoned. The staff was not too friendly. The food was expensive & portions small. We always welcome a cleared, sandy beach, however if you aren't residing on a beach property, keep searching.

Thanks for your review however, there seem to be a misunderstanding. Bamboo Blu is an award winning beachfront Restaurant with amazing staff and food not a villa. We think you may have reviewed the wrong establishment. :) More

A must do if you need to rejuvenate! Exactly 40 minutes from Kingston can be found this serene (once there in no cruise ship in) white sand, warm water oasis! We have been making this trek on a serveral occasions over the years. Before our children, with the bellies and now as a Family! We always have an amazing time!... More

Let me start by saying that this place should be on your list of places to visit. Whether you're a yaadie or a tourist. The view is spectacular, the beach is absolutely gorgeous, and the food is amazing. What speaks the most volume about this place is the Manager Denzil. He transformed a simple girls day trip into an unforgettable... More

Went to Bamboo Blu for dinner and had the most amazing time. Mr. Denzil Thompson greeted us with the most amazing welcome. He made us feel very much at home. Our waitress Mortina was superb... Bamboo Blu is the place to be whether it be lunch or dinner...

We stayed at the resort next door (Rui) and walked down the beach and bumped into Bamboo Blu. Denzil greeted us and made us feel right at home. After talking with him for a while, ordered amazing drinks, had crab legs & enjoyed the water while laying in a cabana. Any visiting Ocho Rios should stop by even just for... More
