“Hidden Oasis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

I visited this little oasis with some family members some weeks ago and I was blown away. The staff, the atmosphere, the food and the pristine beach really impressed us. If you want a hide away for a couple hours this is the perfect spot.

Thank you Bamboo Blu, I have to spread the word and I will be back soon.

“"Bliss"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013

Bamboo Blu is one of my favorite places to go to whenever I'm in Ocho Rios. It's an ideal spot to taste not only their amazing food but also to taste paradise which are one of the places I highly recommend to go to for a calm and relaxed euphoria.

“Hi Andre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

We never ate here but many people came off of the cruise liners & said it was great, it was right next to our hotel on the beach, so we went a couple of times for a drink & were made very welcome. Andre asked us when were sat at the bar with him where we came from & found our house on Google maps, this was a nice touch. thank you guys.

“Very Romantic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

Bamboo Blu was a wonderful, romantic place. You have to go through a gated community to get there and once you are there you see and hear Jamaica. It’s a small building with a covered seating area and another seating area directly beach front. The place is lined with Tiki Torches and the entertainment was a man playing the guitar and singing some great tunes, mainly Bob Marley which was fitting. The food was delicious and worth it. We had the crab wonton as an appetizer and the lobster and jerk pork ribs with sweet mash potatoes as our meal. All of it was very good and reasonably priced for a special night out of the resort for some authentic Jamaican food.
