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. I e-mailed White Sands advising them that we needed ground transfer from the Mobay Airport to their property. They made those arrangements for us and had Patrick pick us up. He was there... More

I am so happy that we chose White Sands for our stay in Negril. We couldn't have asked for more. It was very clean and comfortable. The staff was so kind and made sure every detail was just right. The hotel was one of the more livelier hotels on the beach, yet so relaxing. Food was excellent, drinks were even... More

Above average for the seven mile strip. Our 1 BR apartment has a small kitchen, dining table, and 2 couches. Clean and relatively modern. Friends in our group had the villa with the private pool, but staying beachside had its plusses. Drinks from the bar were always great, lunch and breakfast were tasty and inexpensive.

Thank you for the trip report. Glad you liked the room as well as the drinks and food at the bar and grill. Great to hear your friends stayed in our 4 bedroom / 4 bathroom villa with pool. We have two pools on property, the villa has their own pool and we have another one on the garden side... More

We arrived at the resort on a Saturday in July 2014. We where greeted by a friendly.

Thank you for your trip report. Glad you liked the champagne. Traveling with infants can often be a bit stressful, hope the bubbly helped you relax! Sorry you did not enjoy the bar and grill.

Try this bar out- It was a real find! We had happy hour drinks daily and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! The drinks were inexpensive but the strength really depended on who you had as a bartender. They ranged in ability and attitude. Some days were better than others. All in all, a nice place to stop and relax.

Glad you liked the bar. Yep...we do a daily drink special and everyone who walks the beach enjoys stopping by for a cocktail or blended drink. We will soon be launching our new Bar/Grill T-shirts. Hopefully the next time you stop you can check them out. Look forward to serving you again on your next trip. Cheers, White Sands Negril More

I stayed there Feb 4th to the 8th. Rooms are clean and that is the most important part to me. The bathrooms are really nice...They seem to be upgraded. Nothing fancy....you get a bed, nice furniture, clean bathroom and a cool view. I stayed on the garden side and I like that better than the beach side.... Staff very nice.... More

Thank you for sharing your trip report. Glad you enjoyed the room. We recently renovated a block of rooms next to our garden side pool. Based on your feedback you probably stayed in one of these rooms. Glad you like the new bathrooms, I think they turned out really nice. Accidents happen, don't worry about it. We are always here...

Four of us stayed here for three nights recently and were very pleased with the friendliness of the staff, particularly Jennifer at breakfast, and also the check-in desk staff. Breakfast service was quick and the servings generous. Although we arrived early, one room was ready and so we were able to put our bags there till the other room checked... More

Thank you for your trip report. Wonderful to read you enjoyed meeting and interacting with our staff. It is true we are blessed with being located on a quiet and comfortable part of the beach with no large hotels near us. We fixed the WiFi issue by installing a fiber optic cable.

I stayed at White Sands for my 3rd time in January 2015. The hotel is clean and is situated on both sides of the beach road - I prefer the quiet of the garden side rather than the beachside of the hotel. The staff are friendly. The hotel serves breakfast and lunch only but there are plenty of nearby affordable... More

I have stayed here twice now. It's a nice, quiet, clean hotel that is on Seven Mile Beach and has a nice little portion of beach sectioned off just for the guests. There are beach chairs, a cute beach bar with daily drink specials, and a decent restaurant. The rooms are very basic but clean and the AC was cold.... More
