So after a stressful 3 years of University it was time to get some R & R and Negril was the place for that. I chose to search for a more inexpensive hotel that wasn't all inclusive to give me the opportunity to enjoy the rest of Negril. Well White Sands was just that. With a property that stretches across... More

Just returned from our second stay at Whitesands and will not stay anywhere else but here in the future. All the people who work here are the friendliest you will ever meet from Francis (the manager ) Henry , Blacker , Mr Davidson , receptionists (sorry can't recall their names). This place is very safe and secure thanks to Teddy... More

My family recently rented the villa and I feel the need to share my perspective as I have not seen much feedback in reviews. First, the staff is all very friendly and the strength of White Sands, except for the bartender mentioned in NUMEROUS reviews. From the nice lady working reception to the house cleaners, all would greet you with... More

Really basic rooms and badly maintained. The windows grills and windows were badly sealed or secured and didn't prevent lizards and a whole range of insects crawling in. The seat covers were absolutely filthy and had to be covered with towels before use. The cleaning staff left a 'Gratuity Envelop' after every clean...This I thought was unnecessary and disgusting!

I think if people read a wide selection of reviews left on Tripadvisor they will come to the conclusion that your feedback is not the norm. I regret you feel it is, in your words, 'disgusting' for our hotel to place a gratuity envelope in the rooms. Unlike many hotels in world that include a gratuity in their room rate,... More

We were a group of 7 friends vacationing together. We had previously (on the same trip) stayed at Bennmaya at Ocho Rios (see my review there). Much the same kind of setup. This place was perfect for us. Even some of those staying at White Sands may not be aware that it consists of three parts. First, the part "on... More

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
