I really just wanted a place to sleep for a couple of nights and this was the perfect place for that. I didn't feel unsafe or scared and the only problem I had a lizard trying to share my room with me. I told him I paid he didn't so get out... eventually he did... but that is about the... More

I had the pleasure of staying at the White Sands on the last leg of my 13 day vacation in Negril Jamaica and I can say I may a great decision. The property manager not only let me check in earlier than expected but when the air conditioner didn’t work properly in my 1 bedroom apt rental they moved me... More

Ok, I've been waiting for this for a couple of months. Before booking, I read all the reviews, kept updated and researched heavily. Mostly, the reviews were positive enough for me to take the leap and make reservations. This was to be the first vacation in three years for my wife and I and a celebration of both our birthdays...

Okay, I'm going to be very honest because I often review-reviews when considering my hotel options and I always hope that the reviewer is being fair and honest. So here goes: We decided to stay at White Sands Negril because we wanted to save our money for excursions, so we weren’t looking for the bells and whistles. White Sands was... More

The grounds are absolutely beautiful, the management is amazing, the employees are so sweet, and the bar has awesome 2-for-1 specials. I will always stay here every time I come to Negril. Walking distance to all the best restaurants and town. If you go to Negril, DO NOT stay at an all inclusive. The only way to really enjoy Negril... More

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
