We had wings and cheeseburgers there, with fries, very tasty all of it. Right on the beach with and amazing view of the water. Superb view!! Good prices, only $10 for a cheeseburger with fries, and got to eat in our bathing suits.

We stayed in the rooms and ate most of our meals here. The specialty was a lobster pizza which was very tasty. The other food was fine. Location is great

I used to order lobster pizza from Tamboo back in the 80's when I was in Negril. I can understand why it's still around...great tasting pie! The restaurant is nothing fancy but you can bring your own wine...

Four of us came for a lobster pizza and salads after a day on the beach. Music was way too loud but the wait staff were very accommodating when we asked to have it turned down. Salads came along with bottles of grocery store dressings. Ok. The lettuce and vegetables were fresh and crunchy. The lobster pizza while pretty pricey... More

They have a small selection of items on the menu, but only had about half the things in stock! lol It was very random. When we sat down, they said they only had Ting, and beer. Then later they said... More

this was the very first place I ever stayed in Jamaica . My room was upstairs which was fine. The food is just OK. They have a very small bar and a hammock. Easy to find someone to give you a massage while you lay on the beach. At night the beach is very dark. Would I stay here again... More
