A different experience from anywhere else I have been to in Jamaica. If you are looking for peace and quiet this is not the place for you. I had a great time, there was live music on the beach every night and the sand was so soft and clean. The food was very good, the staff were excellent......and the people...

Roots Bamboo came through for us when another resort was overbooked. They have newer rooms that are clean and spacious. We had one of two rooms on their building with an upper level. We had a great view of the beach. They have a great vibe, great staff and great prices. I can't wait until next year.

I hope they have improved since last year. They had a quaint property and nice people working there. I didn't expect much for the price, but would have hoped the cabin was a bit more comfortable as they looked from the outside. It was very sparse and not too comfortable. Too many beds in a small space and you could...

We did not stay here. We were her for live band. Roots Bamboo on Wednesday night is always our first choice for Live Reggae. In Negril, different beach clubs host live music. Memorize the hot spots for the week. For years, the schedule has been the same, but each year we ask locals on the beach if the schedule has...

If your looking for a place that wont break your bank account, this is the place to stay! Right in the middle of seven mile beach. Great people to take care of you and make you want to stay for ever. They have a bar and place to eat by the bar or in your room.

I have been to Roots Bamboo plenty of times for the music venue at night but this was my first actual stay at the hotel. We decided to book a room for the New Year holiday due to the convenient location on the beach. There are several varieties of rooms to choose from but with it being so crowded on...
