Bambu Villa Guide
Welcome to Bambu, Montego Bay your Jamaican vacation villa. Here is some information to help organize and make you visit more enjoyable.
Airport Arrival:
You should plan to arrive in Jamaica at the Montego Bay International Airport (MBJ). All passengers:
clear immigration - you need to know that you are staying at Bambu in Montego Bay
claim luggage
clear customs
After clearing customs leave the Main Terminal customs area and enter the transportation hall, proceed out the exit doors directly on your right to the taxi/van waiting area (outside). Your driver will be waiting for you in this area. He will have your name on a small sign. If you use porters tip them $1.00/bag.
Villa Arrival:
Our experience is that our van or car packages provide the easiest most convenient ground transportation for the villa bound traveler to Jamaica. Your driver will personally meet you at the Montego Bay Airport. No need to wait in lines for rental cars or the confusion of driving after a long flight. Your party will be comfortably transported, using a private, air conditioned van, directly to Bambu. The drive will take about 20 minutes and is a wonderful first introduction to the island of Jamaica. When you arrive at Bambu you will be met by the staff. They will tour you through the property and allow you to select your rooms and relax before dinner. The cook will have ordered food for evening dinner and basic supplies for the week. You will be given a bill that can be paid at the local grocery store by cash (USD are acceptable) or credit card (VISA is preferred) the next day. Dinner will be served by your staff possibly on a terrace overlooking the sea, garden or in a formal indoor dining room. It's your choice!!
Telephone:
Bambu phone number is: 876-609-6561. The Jamaica 876 area code is dialed like any other US area code typically with a 1 before it.
Most telephone credit cards will not work in making long distance calls from Jamaica. You should check with your service provider before your trip. We recommend that you purchase a Jamaican prepaid calling card to use instead of your telephone credit card for all international long distance calls. These cards are readily available in most grocery and drug stores around the island. The Jamaican wireless system operates on a TDMA network, so it is not compatible with CDMA, GSM or 3G networks. Cable & Wireless and Digicell, the Jamaican providers, do have roaming agreements with the following service providers:
USA - AT&T Wireless, Sprint and Cingular Wireless
Canada - Rogers Wireless
Barbados & Cayman - Cable & Wireless
If you have roaming service with these providers, you may be able to "roam" while in Jamaica, but check with your wireless service provider. Your van driver always has a cell phone and would be more than happy to let you use the phone when needed.
Staff:
The staff are the true joy of a Jamaican villa experience. They are wonderfully accommodating and will try to do anything you want. Just ask. Some staff live off the property or in separate accommodations on the villa grounds. Our cook will consistently delight you with wonderful Jamaican meals, special cakes for birthday or anniversary events. Staff members may bring unusual fruits or vegetables that they have grown in their own gardens to the villa for you to sample. The staff should not be tipped until you leave (see tipping below).
Meals:
Ask any repeat traveler to Jamaica about where the best restaurant is and most will tell you "the villas". Villa cooks are fantastic. They can whip up a wonderful western omelet or prepare a supeThey can whip upThey They can whip up a wonderful western omelet or prepare a superb Jamaican specialty such as ackee and saltfish. It's your choice. You can ask that the cook to "surprise" you with her Jamaican cooking skills, or w

Always warm in the winter and a welcome relief to the heat of the summer with beautiful trade winds. Along with the stunning topography, mountain views and huge vistas of sea in every direction. Jamaican food, music, art is a very dynamic and exciting. Jamaica is very pure and true to its self.

                  Our property allows for total peace and quiet in a stunning enviroment all while being cared for by a fabulous staff. Including butler, cook, housekeeper, laundress and 2 gardners.
