This review is a little overdue but I figure if it helps someone I should do it. I was traveling and on the ride over from the airport I discovered a single female on the ride was also staying there. We were both excited about that because we were getting along so well. We arrived and were greeted well. Then... More

Visited Sandy Haven mid June 2014 with family. This resort had a large resort feel, from it being located on the beach, the various amenities, as well as the impeccable upkeep maintained by the staff. We received wonderful service from Jerome, whom was very attentive to me and my family's needs and by day 2 of our 4-day, 3-night stay,... More

The staff at Sandy Haven are amazing! I can't say enough about Tamara at checkin and throughout our stay, always smiling and positive. The staff at beach bar and breakfast, outstanding. I can't remember everyone's name but Romeo and young lady with glasses each morning were excellent. Both Pops and Dwight could not have been more accommodating. We never had... More

Have been to Negril several times and Sandy Haven has a great central location. We had 3 beachfront rooms for our family over the holidays. Rooms were fine,views were great! The rooms could use some additional hooks for robes, towels etc and the bathtub takes up a large amount of room which space would be better utilized with a chest... More

I would like to say that first and foremost the staff and Miss Chen are wonderful people that truly care about your experience. The initial check inn had us in a room with two double beds, when my reservation specified a king bed. Trip was booked 4 months in advance. I dread these situations, as you end up wasting days...

I will start by saying we are repeaters at Coco La Palm. Due to a mix up with dates we spent the last two nights of our 15 night trip at Sandy Haven at our booking agents expense for the difference in price. We checked out of Coco and walked next door to Sandy Haven at noon. Our room wasn’t... More

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for bringing the below to the attention of Sandy Haven Resort. Due to the high occupancy level at the time specified we had a slight delay on the turnover of rooms for that period, and for that I do apologize. The suite that was mentioned is one of the newest added to the property therefore... More

Sandy Haven is a beautiful little boutique hotel, located right on the beach. It is in the middle of everything. You can walk up or down the water for quite a ways, checking out what's happening all along seven mile beach. The rooms are beautifully laid out. Very clean and roomy! The bed was a little firm, but we prefer... More

Second stay at Sandy Haven and even though it is in a "good" location (but aren't the majority of boutique hotels in Negril) will not stay again. Issue at check in - when I booked room by default it booked as 1 person in the room. (This is a EP hotel, not all inclusive) and upon check-in they charged me... More

I stayed here earlier this year for one night in May. I was pretty impressed then. I stayed here this past thanksgiving weekend for two nights. I was just as impressed as I was 6 months ago. Coincidentally we ended up in the same room we stayed at once before. There are two buildings in the hotel with a jacuzzi... More
