Checked in for two days. First night we spent in a non-airconditioned room as they had none with air conditioning and I don't really care if there is AC or not. The room was 15 dollars a night less and it was definitely lower quality. The deck was nice although it overlooked the next resort - they also didn't have... More

The room wasn't the most modern but clean on a daily basis and the view from the room was absolutely what you would expect when you go on holiday in the sun, peaceful, beautiful and tranquillity. The staff was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. I will definitely stay here again. Its perfect if you're holidaying on a budget..

My husband and I frantically searched for an affordable and clean hotel before nightfall that would also meet the approval of my slightly fussy sisters who would be flying in two days... More

The advertising is misleading to say the least. We stayed at several places in Jamaica and all were as advertised or better. None were high priced. All received at least an 8 rating from us. Ocean Sands was dirty and broken down and in a questionable part of town. We booked there because we wanted to stay on the beach.... More
