Good location, clean, a room with a bed & bathroom, but that's all!

Good location on the beach. Room close to the beach. Room was clean.
There was no coffee maker, refridgerator, or microwave. No ice available.Not even a cup or glass.

för dyrt i förhållande till skötsel o standard

städningen, frukosten
hotellet hade inte den standard som beskrevs av bokningsbolaget, dyrt i förhållande till standarden, dålig organisation av rummen

Not a resort, rather a cheap motel.

The toilets were not working properly, there are absolutely no amenities, the water pressure in the sink & shower was very weak, and no hot water.

Love Jamaica and this hotel has been there since at least the early 1980's when there was only beach

The administrative assistant is the BEST! Loved her dearly, such a hospitable person and she loves her job, it shows. Hotel is nice and I would stay there again if the music issues were resolved. It's a shame that noise can make an uncomfortable visit and in a sense I feel badly for the Tamboo hotel.
Very noisy and I was unable to make phone calls and have WIFI access. The restaurant plays extremely loud music and you could not have a conversation due to the noise and loud music. I did mention the annoying music and they were somewhat accommodating but the male worker there insisted on playing loud music. There was one day that there was a group of girls who sat down for lunch in the restraint and when they sat down the man put the music on. The girls ended up getting up and leaving, Jamaica needs to understand that conversation is more important than loud horrible music, they played a rap reggae which was awful, that is not Jamaica. I do not believe that people come from miles away to sit on the beach in front of a quiet hotel and be disturbed with music 24/7. Extremely noisy are at least 20 hours out of a 24 hour day. We left out outdoor light on one night and somebody came by and unscrewed it, I think this was not right as we needed light to see our door lock. The hotel is not well lit up and we did suffer an incident that could have turned out to be life threatening, thank god it did not turn out worse but the hotels should be monitoring the transients a bit better.

We went here for drinks and food. They took our order and a credit card. Than made us wait more than an hour and a half for the food, trying to get us to drink more.If you don't want the life sucked out of your day, don't go here.

My idea of a perfect vacation spot is a place where I can feel at home away from home. If you are looking for a place that feels like the Jamaica with it's warm and respectful simplicity, then Jamaica Tamboo is for you. If you love the beach and want the sand and water to be "right there", then Jamaica Tamboo is for you. If you love good food, a good drink, a beautiful view,and amazing service, Jamaica Tamboo is for you.Amazing staff, makes for one fabulous experience. This is for those people who don't like the hustle and commercialism of a huge all-inclusive, but love the beauty and peace of a wonderful island. Jamaica Tamboo is close to everything in Negril, and the staff will happily accommodate your travel to island attractions.
