Things to See and Do While Staying at Root's Bamboo

Though guests probably won't find too many recreational opportunities on-site at Root's Bamboo, that certainly doesn't mean you won't encounter other intriguing things to see and do during your trip to Jamaica.

These cottages are so close to the water that the absence of a swimming pool on the property is not a concern for most visitors who can enjoy lounging on the sand instead. In fact, even when staying at a property with a pool, many vacationers spend so much time on the beaches in Jamaica that they visit the pool very little during their stay.


Though Root's Bamboo does not have a golf course, you may be able to arrange a tee time during your stay. The nearest course is Negril Hills Golf Club, which you'll find only a quick interval away from the property, so it won't be troublesome to plan on stopping by for some rounds on the links. You can play 18 holes at this course. This par 72 course is 5798 yards long. If you're considering reserving a tee time, you can call the course at (876) 957-4638 ext. 3614.
