This place looks like a little town with colorful tiny apts. if you desire to book them. Then you are just a walk away from the beach. There are not many beach chairs out there. The ones they have are slatted wood. There are tons of people selling things outside and a guy who is an amazing painter. Somewhere outside... More

We stopped here on the way back from a day trip to Negril. We had a couple drinks on the beach and the people were very nice. Nice vibe of the place, made me think of much simpler times back in the 70's.

A smaller venue, seating a little cramped around stage, but would go again for live music. No DJ's. Lot's of locals. Bathrooms are very far from bar & stage.

This club is next to where we were staying at the Fun Holiday. It is a pretty simple bar and the enteratinemt was good. Of course you would have to watch out for the higglers, and you may very well get propositioned by one of the working girls that haunt the place, but the environment is fun and the band... More

They had great pancakes and the fresh fruit was good. I felt bad for the waiter because the kitchen was so far away from the table area. The lobster was pretty good and the jerk chicken was also good. Nice place on the beach.

The walk into Roots Bamboo on a concert night (every night?) is sketchy, but the place does not disappoint. Filled with locals and tourists, this is a place where everyone has a great time drinking and dancing.

Great place to meet people, reasonably priced drinks. Listen to the music played by the live band. Plenty of locals also gather here to meet tourists, really enjoyable. Most of the bars on the beach charge an entrance fee, no fee here which is a pleasant change.
