My wife and I are returning to Negril in mid-February 2014 and since Alfred's was booked for our timeframe, I contacted Roots Bamboo because I know it is close in proximity and enjoyed the bar.
The friendly woman I talked to answered a couple questions, and when I called back after talking it over with my wife, reserved a cabin with private bathroom/shower by taking my first/last name and phone number only. I asked if she needed any other info to send a confirmation email or deposit, etc, and she said it's no problem and she had me written down in the book and to just call two days before we arrive.
Has anyone on the board stayed at Roots Bamboo before, and if so, is name and phone number typically all you need to book a cabin in advance? If so, no problem, but I just want to prevent the possibility of showing up in February and having an issue with a place to stay, as I know it's a busy time for Negril.
I plan on calling in the next day or so either way, but was hoping to get anyone with experiences take on the situation.
