4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel, is very small, but well designed and the location great. The rooms are very nice and recently renovated. (It would have been nice to have a bath in the huge bathroom though.) The staff we all very friendly and unlike some of the other reviews I found them to be very apologetic when we had a small issue,... More

Have stayed at this hotel many times over the years when it was called For Real. Was definitely the most fun and the best location on Negril's Seven Mile Beach. The hotel has undergone a fantastic renovation and modernization. Best of all Pops is still on staff!

Sandy Haven is by far the best hotel on the beach. The rooms are updated, extremely clean, well lit and modern. All the beds now have toppers on the mattresses as we all know mattresses in Jamaica leave a lot to be desired. The plumbing problems left over the previous owner have now all be revamped, everyone has hot water... More

My friends stayed here. We visited them at their hotel for one afternoon. The rooms were large and modern. My friend said the bed was comfy. The property was well maintained. The service at the beach bar was excellent, & prices were fair. Would recommend.

This beachfront property is extremely affordable. If you are used to larger franchises you will have to change your prospective when visiting. The amenities are minimal but the beach is worth not having the ones we were used to from larger luxury hotels.

Sandy Haven is the perfect little spot. A bit overpriced considering the many all inclusive options along the Negril beach. Loved the privacy on the beach. Not too many vendors, although we did see for the first time an American woman selling clothes right at the perimeter A first for me!! Going to have dinner here tonight at Bongos. Hope... More

This hotel was very nice. Updated and clean. The only thing that could make the rooms better would be a bigger refrigerator. Merel our house keeper was awesome, Pop's (Poppy) was great as well -- both always more than willing to assist you in any way.

Just returned for an 8 day stay at Sandy Haven. The Owner, Ann was on site and was very friendly - the staff, Jerome, Pops (my personal fav), Leon, Carrianne and everyone remembers your name and was always around to serve you.
