We stayed on the garden side. The room was nice, updated with a small patio with perfectly manicured landscaping. A short walk across to the beach, where the bar is upbeat with locals and travelers. Locals on the beach selling patties and juices, beach massages available, and wood carved art/jewelry. A great place to visit and hang out at the... More

I stayed here for the first time in 2013 and lived everything about our stay. Rooms are basic but clean. Pool area was great also. Loved the staff including Carrie Ann who was one of the desk staff at the time. Paul the bartender was fantastic and the elderly gentleman who does security on the beach(his name escapes me) was...

Very sorry to read your feedback about one of our bartenders. I cannot speak for other business owners, but I would always prefer to get feedback from clients when they are on property, especially when they have concerns. It is the most efficient way for me to solve a problem. Unfortunately, in the age of technology and social media, people... More

White Sands is good for a good price. Clean and safety in the middle of 7-mile beach. Good bed and newly renovated bathrooms. The staff is friendly. The internet is often slow. The restaurant is not that good. Slow service, not too good food and quite expensive. Don't serve dinner, just breakfast and lunch. You can find better places along... More

To be 100% honest at first I wanted to leave and go to a bigger hotel. My boyfriend convinced me to stay and so happy we did. We stayed on the beach side and become great buds with bar mates. Had the "Cheers" bar atmosphere. The beach access on site was a big plus. The customer service from all staff... More

We decide to venture away from the all-inclusive for the first time. Read a lot of reviews of places to stay. Decided to try White Sands Negril.
