“Paradise Found”
Reviewed 9 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

This was a last minute booking but the owners went above and beyond to insure our trip was stress free. Unexpected to us, Leslie the butler met us at the airport with the driver, and made it his mission to take care for the rest of the week. The owners who live in Florida appear to be very involved in the management of the property and it shows.

We arrived to chilled towels and met the rest of the 7 person staff who greeted us with “welcome home”. They endeavored to satisfy us in every way possible for balance of our stay. Never intrusive, always friendly, and available day and night, they quietly went about their daily routines in keeping the Villa and grounds in top shape.

As they say, the best Chef’s on the island are found in the better villas and Bambu's Peaches is the best we have experienced in multiple villa stays over 20 years of visits to Jamaica. Leslie joked our first night that the meals would progressively get better each day, but we found every dinner to be equally exceptional.

We opted to enjoy all of our meals in the open air dining pavilion which afforded excellent views over to Montego Bay both day and night. Other options included a formal dining room as well as a beautiful terrace area on the ocean facing corner of the property. Peaches’ multi course creations were always served by Leslie, each meal served on a different and unique place setting. All meals were restaurant quality!

The villa itself is unique for the area…a blend of Caribbean Architecture (roof lines) with some old world Italian inspired features (arches; iron work) including the statues around the swimming pool which may remind some of a roman spa, or at least the Garden of the Gods at Caesars Palace (Vegas Edition).

The show stopper is the grounds. Multiple levels of well-manicured lawns, fruit trees, palms, dotted with fountains and quiet spaces. Well placed Royal Palms towering over the roof tops give the property a true paradise feel. Not a bad view anywhere. In addition to the usual “free range” island foul, the owner’s love of animals is present on their island estate. The “Arc” as I called it included roaming bunnies, a few peacocks, a friendly Great Dane Pup, goats, and even a parrot who added to the menagerie.

The pictures do not do the place justice. We were two and more than comfortable, but Bambu easily works for multiple couples or a larger family because of the many “hiding places” affording on demand quiet time.

“Magical Retreat with Top Notch Service, Food and Amenities”
Reviewed 28 October 2014 for a stay in August 2014

person found this review helpful

The trip was magical and more than I could have ever expected for a trip with 9 women! First of all, the home is stunning and no detail was spared. The rooms are extremely large and each have their own private bath. The staff spoiled us rotten with around the clock service. The food was out of this world and we all wanted to bring the chef, Peaches, home with us. The views from the home are breathtaking and the sunsets left me speechless. The home and staff exceeded my expectations and set an incredibly high bar for any trip going forward. If anyone is having trouble making up their mind if this is a vacation that you should take. Let me tell you this, you will have a Vacation that you will remember and Cherish for the rest of your life.

“Paradise”
Reviewed 17 August 2013 for a stay in November 2012

My family and I stayed at Bambu Villa last November and had the most wonderful vacation imaginable. The house is beautifully furnished and incredibly comfortable. If I had a vacation home in the tropics, this is exactly how I would want mine to look. The view is amazing, simply breathtaking, in fact. Sitting at the outdoor dining room table with the view, the light, and the breeze is heavenly. The house was spotless, the staff completely attentive to our every desire with the most delicious jamaican food I have ever tasted! This house deserves a higher rating than just excellent. It is extraordinary! You will not be disappointed. I can't wait to go back!

“Tropical dream, transport your self to another time while enjoying the privacy and beauty an elegant estate.”
Reviewed 29 July 2013 for a stay in May 2011

This is a incredible home. I have been all over the world and I remember Bambu Villa fondly. Rooms fit for diplomats, beautiful pool, very Private, close to everything and views one will never forget. Bambu Villa is more than I had expected in a villa in Jamaica. World class accommodations. Book it.

“Tropical Paradise”
Reviewed 24 July 2013 for a stay in November 2011

My husband and I stayed at Bambu Villa to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary. We could not have found a more romantic spot. The Villa sits on a hill overlooking the bay. The view is spectacular! We loved the architecture of the villa ,the views, the grounds and the gardens. The Villa is across the bay from the city of Montego Bay. At night we had dinner in the outdoor dining room and you look across the bay and the lights of the city look like sparkling jewels.
The staff are friendly and helpful. You have complete privacy until you need something and then they are quick to respond.
You are close to Round Hill. It is a short cab drive to the city but we were so happy at Bambu Villa we did not leave often.
Our meals were excellent. We ate at different areas around the gardens, all overlooking the bay, for lunch and dinner. Each meal they used different beautiful sets of china with gorgeous linens.
5 stars from us!
