I stopped at Roots and it had a great relaxed vibe going on with a local band playing both the classic raggae music and more modern music of their own. I had both Stripes and top shelf liquor there. The area is slow in sept but there was still a good mix of tourists and locals there enjoying the evening.

Been there during the Dream Weekend,it's been the perfect base. Located on the main road next to 7-Mile-Beach it's pretty close to everything but a quiet place als well. Short ways to the parties,cheap and clean rooms,friendly staff and of course what else to say: It's Negril! ;)

I think people are disappointed with their accommodations when they haven't fully prepared themselves for their own needs. I did my homework on Roots & knew what I should expect and my expectations were met. In a rustic setting, if you fail to ask for something, you won't get it. Therefore there's nobody to blame but yourself. Negril never disappoints...

It's not for everyone, but if you are looking for a homey, laid back vibe then this is the place. Do not expect 5 star service, but expect friendly faces and helpful people everywhere. The room was basic, 2 beds and a bathroom and a fridge, the AC was on point, and the food was delicious. They will probably not...

Recent stay of 8 days at this place and would not return. We are 17 year travellers to the Negril area and have stayed at mostly inexpensive places. This one just didn't even come close to doing it for us. Just did not feel as if customer / guest service was remotely important to the owners at all. From check...

If you can get a room with A/C and a kitchenette it is worth the extra money. Cottages are close together, and it is a lot of fun if you get along with your neighbors. The property has a great "homey" feeling. Lots of people just chilling on their porches. Beach is great, although beach chairs are wooden. Bring your...

Funky set of bungalows. I had fan bungalow that had twin beds and lovely porch to hang out. It is basically just next to the beach but has no fence so you might experience a lot of harassment. I actually even had difficulties being left alone on my own porch but well, that is Jamaica. For me first and last...

I was robbed by knifepoint by 3 people on the property (at the main office) while trying to use the wifi which doesn't reach beyond the office. The thieves are known criminals to the police and to the staff. The security guard knew the prostitute involved and has been under investigation for prior incidents with the robbery of guests. Any...

I stayed at roots for one night this past week....For the price I paid, I can't complain too much....For 50 bucks I knew I wasn't in line for anything fancy. All my other reviews have been all excellent so I'm not nitpicky. I didn't care about the no AC or TV....Ive been to Negril 22 times so I've had a...

We stayed a week at Roots Bamboo in Negril and will not go back again.Between the bar and the other residents, there wasn't much quiet time for sleeping. If you don't like the smell of Ganga, then don't stay here, however, if you want to party and smoke Ganga all day and most of the night every day and night,...
