In 2006, I brought my girlfriend at the time to this place and I was a little apprehensive as I knew it was "bare bones". My previous trip to Jamaica was an all-inclusive and I felt slightly robbed, shackled to the hotel's meal scheduling and not able to fully enjoy the sites. SHE LOVED White Sands!! The people are so... More

We've been back home about 1 1/2 weeks, but miss White Sands already! Our trip was the last week of Oct. thru the first week of Nov. and we are trying to figure out how to extend our vacation next year- two weeks just isn't long enough. 😊 I was going to give just 4 stars due to the pool... More

If your looking for 5 stars, move on, but for a unbelievable great room rate, you get a room, with great ac, clean , with daily maid service. I needed some clothes cleaned and my maid, so sorry I forgot her name, took care of it for me, no charge. No tv, but who wants tv in Negril. Great bar... More

Thank you for your trip report and kind words. Tourism is sometimes a very funny business. I read your review, and then I reflect back on the review before yours that has nothing but negative things to say, and I scratch my head. After 600+ reviews I would have to say that the overwhelming majority of our reviews are very... More

HORRIBLE MANAGEMENT!!! They don't pay attention to detail at all. If you have a problem with anything they won't cater to that problem, all they will tell you is that they're a small family business thats trying to make it. No TV's for kids and no cool energetic people for young adults. Just a dive bar that SUCKS on the... More

We were awarded a Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor in 2014 due to the overwhelmingly positive feedback we receive throughout the year. So I guess we can agree to disagree about your comments. White Sands Negril More

First the pluses: The hotel is right on the beach. It is reasonably priced for Negril. And if you rent the entire villa like my friends did, it is nice and has a private dedicated pool just for the guests staying in the villa. The villa is really the lone bright spot of this hotel and what salvaged a 3-star... More

Thank you for your review. I will be honest with you and say that in all my years of talking to guests and reading reviews, I have never heard our property described as ‘industrial looking’. I respect your opinion, though I may not share it. The overwhelming response we get is that guests love our lush landscaping, especially on the... More

We have stayed at White Sands on and off for over twenty years. The hotel has always been a great value. We won't stay anywhere else when we are in Negril. If you want luxurious 4 star accommodations, this is not the place for you. However, if you are looking for a clean, secure, and simple accomodations, that has a... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here sep 27-October 1. The bed was so hard one morning we said to each other lets get out of this bed! Our bodies ached every day. I guess I didn't realize there would be no tv in the room. I thought there would be a safe INSIDE the room. We stayed in room B7.... More

Thank you for your trip report. Sorry the mattress was not to your liking. Mattresses firmness is subjective. I gather you did not share this with management while you were on property. If you had, we would have put a mattress topper on the bed and you could have given us feedback and let us know if this solved your... More

I chose this location because my fiancé likes this location. I only stayed at the hotel a few nights. I got married and stayed with my new relatives.

We stayed at the White Sands in July of 2014 and had a fabulous time! The rooms are quaint, thank goodness no televisions, and are blessed with a mini fridge.

Superb location, just on the beach, rooms just fine, very simple accomodation, but who cares about the rooms...:) breakfast restaurant, bar located on the best part of Negril beach, bartender the best in Jamaica!! Pool not clean... But the ocean so beautifull that you do not need a Pool At all!
