Is it a 5 star all inclusive? No. But if you are looking for clean, affordable rooms on the beach then this is a good place. Breakfast was good, service was always friendly across the property. Shout out to Jeffrey the lifeguard who will make sure you are looked after. We took a snorkeling tour with Mike's Glass Bottom Boat.... More

The room was fine, very basic but clean enough (on the surface) as the floors were nice, the beds were made nicely and the room was a good size. The A/C worked like a champ too. We also felt pretty safe on the garden side HOWEVER there are cockroaches. Lots of cockroaches. They were coming up from the sink drain... More

Large clean rooms with private porch. A/C works well, small private refrigerator in room, no TV. In the middle of seven mile beach tourist strip in negril. $67 per night is great rate. Not a high end or all inclusive, but can't beat the price and location. Snorkel trip to near by reef was great, amazing variety of tropical fish.... More

Spend a half dozen afternoons at the White Sands Beach Bar this month. Very welcoming; although we stayed elsewhere. We love this beach-side bar and the best bartenders in the resort town Tony and Paul. These guys used way lots of liquor in the frosty blender drinks they concocted to for us in what appeared to be free-pour abandon. (Although... More

Thank you for sharing your Indies 957 review. I believe you might be the first person to dedicate a review just to the bar. Very cool. Thanks for the kind words about Tony and Paul. They are known far and wide on the beach as serving great cocktails. Our daily specials are definitely popular and I hope your return home... More

There is nothing better than coming to our second home away from home. Everything is wonderful. If you are not interested in getting to know kind and helpful Jamaicans ; being cared for in the most sincere way by the owners , than this is not the place for you ! The rooms are affordable and clean and sweet. Couldn't... More

When I arrived the staff was informative and courteous. My room was as it appears on the website, simple and comfy. It was clean and comfortable. The Wi-Fi worked fine without fault. The beach was very clean, the sun deck is awesome. The bar and restaurant was good as well. I returned back to my room at various times, some... More

At $95- a night it is a bargain- but you get what you pay for. The place is just OK. It is in transition as the owner Father recently passed away and other family members have stepped in to run the property. There are 2 sides, one on the beach and the other just across the road. The property has... More

Thank you for the review. I am glad you thought we had a great location and our attractive price point makes us a bargain. But to give us a 2 star review is rather sad. I guess we will have to agree to disagree about the condition of our property. In my opinion and the opinion of our returning guests... More

As I was looking for a budget hotel this place worked well. The beach is super clean, the water is beautiful, and harassment is minimal as you make your way down the sand to an assortment of stalls and restaurants. I was with my 15 year old, and although he liked playing pool and didn't miss the tv, we did... More

Wonderful to read you had a nice holiday at White Sands and are glad you chose us over the other larger hotels. For sure the local Jamaican vibe we offer at White Sands cannot be duplicated at the larger big box hotels. We look forward to hosting you again. Kindest regards, White Sands Negril More
