Beautiful!
I was in awe at this location. Clean & calm water, golden brown sand and lovely live music by Jah Happystone. We rented a bed and had some drinks while snacking on a few appetizers. Quite a lovely experience.

We were introduced to Blu Bamboo by our friends at Wolseley. I had the lobster and my husband had the honey BBQ jerk ribs. Everything was delicious. Our server was crazy Christina and she made our meal that much more enjoyable. We sat right along the ocean and the sound of the waves in the background along with Jamaican music made this meal one of my favourites. We had a fabulous time and would definitely recommend!

The lobster is dived for daily only they only serve fresh. Second best lobster I have ever had, the first being in the Dominican. The meal was good enough that you almost didn't mind having to pay the 16.5% tax plus 10% service fee.
