This was my first time to Negril, Jamaica and I had no idea what to expect. I cannot compare this to the larger resorts, I can only compare Sandy Have with the smaller resorts located in this area. The rooms were so updated and very nice.You should spend the extra money and get the ocean view. Rooms are Jamaican chic... More

So, Sandy Haven, Negril. Where to start? To summarise: it's an attractive looking hotel, inside and out, that's for sure. Probably one of the nicest looking on the 7 mile stretch on a great part of the beach. That, however, is where the show stops. All style and no substance. Assigned a twin bed room as a young couple while... More

We had a wonderful holiday for 9 nights at this hotel. The beach was clean and good swimming area. The hotel has very good food - we enjoyed Bongos quite often. The rooms were very clean and staff helpful. A shout out to our friends "Barbie B, Cross Trainer, Sugar, Humbug, and Gekko". and thanks to all the rest of... More

The room we spent our 5 days there was lovely. Recently refurbished with new fixtures and fittings, a big shower, a large bath tub and a large bed and... More

We were pleased with the beach, the number of chairs available on the beach, the rooms were nice and clean, the beach bar was good but quiet which was ok with us. The service in the morning for breakfast could be slow on some days, but it's island time. The food was good. At ate at the restaurant twice for... More

My and my boyfriend spent 3 nights over Valentine's day weekend at the resort and found it to be excellent. We loved our room (superior garden view with king bed), the amentities, location, and staff. We didn't find the bed "hard", staff "rude", or breakfast "sparse" as other reviewers have stated. I expected a little bit of disappointment based on... More

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
