“The Best Hotel in Portant Antonio”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

Not only is the staff friendly and the food To die for, Their accomadstions are A1. In a economy such as ours no other establishment gives you a better bang for your buck. It is Located right along the coastline of Port Antonio and has a real island feel to it. The rooms are very modern and quite spacious, with Flat screen TV's and internet access.

A very affordable place to stay smack in the middle of Port Antonio. Comfortable hotel. Service was good. The room color could have been lighter for my taste. But for the price, cant complain. Nice and easy drive to beaches, about ten to fifteen minutes depending on where you are going. But I enjoyed the drive since the journey allowed you to take in the scenic views of Portland.

I spent two nights here, and had a great experience. I had never been to Port Antonio, so we were using Tim Bamboo as a place to sleep and bathe (although water pressure was very low)!
We had a taxi driver that stayed with us, so we were able to get around. If you did not have a car, I am not too sure how convient it is to locate buses or taxi's to bring you to the Blue Lagoon or Boston Beach. Both places are must see's if you are in the area. Simply breath taking!

Tim Bamboo is conveniently located within walking distance to Port Antonio town centre and close to Ana Bananas. The hotel is clean and comfortable and the staff is great! They also serve delicious Jamaican breakfast -

Only problem was the hot water. Spent a weekend there and got warm water only once.

I didn't stay here but they offer breakfast to outsiders daily. Me and a friend at breakfast here 3 mornings and each morning we were impressed. The staff is friendly and the food was deliciously prepared! Oh, and it only cost $500 (Jamaican) which is about $5 US. Great deal!

Hotel is located on a side street in Port Antonio just a short walk from the center of this small rural town. On first sighting the hotel we were a little offset by the rustic appearance but on entering found the decor quite pleasant. The staff were attentive and pleasant and Mr. Panton, the manager, was very helpful and always seemed to be there. Good local meals are available but I cannot comment on the available international menu as we ate local. Breakfast comes with the room. On Easter Sunday there was a special brunch and a show featuring Grammy nominated Jamaican artiste Singing Melody. It was a great show and well received by the guests and other members of the audience. My only regret is that they serve instant coffee rather than perk real Jamaican coffee. We will stay at Hotel Tim Bamboo again.

Room Tip: Ask to see the available rooms and choose for yourself. Staff and management are quite accomodating...
