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

Some visitors plan to spend all their time in the water or trekking the land, but this isn't required for a great getaway in Jamaica. Thus, despite the fact that Root's Bamboo doesn't offer the widest range of recreational activities, it might still provide exactly the setting you're wanting to find.

These cottages are so close to the water that the fact that it doesn't have a swimming pool is barely noticed by most guests who can quickly walk to the beach for a refreshing swim. Lots of tourists would rather spend their days at the closest shore even when a swimming pool may be available.


Even though Root's Bamboo doesn't feature a golf course, you may be able to arrange a tee time during your stay. The nearest course is Negril Hills Golf Club, which is located two miles to the southeast of this accommodation. There are 18 total holes at this golf course. This par 72 course has a total length of 5798 yards. For those who would like to find out more information, the course can be contacted at (876) 957-4638 ext. 3614.
