It's the little things.... Room was nicely kitted out and decor (infestation of ants in the bathroom) was good, room service etc.... but something is missing in this place and I think it's the service. Everyone is surly and make you feel like you owe them a favour. Everyone expects tips but doesn't realise that good service gets good tips.... More

I have travelled extensively for the past 25 years globally. This was certainly the Absolutely WORST experiences. It costs $200 to and from Montego Bay Airport. Once youre there , they have an agreement with a taxi driver (Brian) that can take you around. He will insist on taking you to some of his "hotspots" where he gets a kickback... More

All I'll say is from the front gate to the Sea !!!!!! 5 Star fun and loved the Staff. Outstanding Service. Have a snack at Bongos, stroll to the Pool and then have a few drinks at the Beach Bar. Ask for a Stinger from the Bartenders ....WOW

I am so happy my best-friend and I found the Sandy Haven on Trip Advisor. We were able to set up transportation from MBJ to the hotel through Kenny Tours and absolutely loved the drive there. The staff was awesome, especially Pops! He made sure us ladies were safe and taken care of. The room itself was super clean and... More

This was my first time to Jamaica and I was blown away by how amazing everything was. We came in under the all inclusive package and, after some back and forth trying to sort the menu out, we could not have been more pleased. The beach was beautiful, the food was delicious and the staff were the most amazing people... More

My now husband and I had 44 friends and family join us at Sandy Haven Resort for our destination wedding. We stayed at SHR for a week. And we can say the staff were on point for the week. At first they were reserved somewhat when we first arrived, but day by day we all became "friends" and enjoyed each... More

We ate and drank at the beach bar, after leaving Maragaritaville (which was a disaster). We didn't stay at the resort. Sandy Haven service was great; quick, very attentive and nice bartender. It was clean. The food was fresh, delicious, great variety and affordable. Our son had the sliders, daughter had calamari, I had salad and I think hubby had... More

Second trip at Sandy Haven and I must tell you I was welcomed back by all the staff. They geniuely remembered me and asked about my family. I was absolutely delighted once again and brought additional guests for my "girl weeks" vacation. The owner was there and took the time to speak with me and guest. I fact to my... More

Had an amazing stay at Sandy Haven! The resort is beautiful. Loved my ocean front room. The staff was professional, courteous and very welcoming! The beach is spectacular. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Looking forward to another trip to Negril!
