This is the 2nd time I stayed at Sandy Haven and I still love it! The staff are so nice and accommodating. Housekeeping keeps your room spotlessly clean. We had no issues with water temp or pressure, however we were on the ground floor. Unfortunately, I booked an oceanview room, but they gave me a garden view saying they were... More

This hotel was amazing, probably the nicest one I've ever stayed at. My boyfriend got a great Living Social deal, and when we got there we were upgraded to an ocean view room! The hotel grounds and the room were modern and clean. The ocean view room was beautiful. We had a large tub and a shower. My only complaint... More

I can't say enough about the relaxing stay we had recently at Sandy "Heaven". The grounds are exquisitely beautiful and well kept. The pool was clean and in the shade for mornings and afternoons which was outstanding. Whoever designed the grounds did an optimal job. The breakfast was outstanding and the staff was extremely polite and accommodating. Having Bongos restaurant... More

I have traveled all around the world and I don't book a trip without first conferring with Tripadvisor Additionally, I am not a frequent review writer. With that said I had such an enjoyable experience at Sandy Haven that I must share with those that use Trip Advisor as their Bible and are looking for a place in Negril. From... More

As a Jamaican, I have been to Negril many times in my life, often for a day trip so I know the area. I have stayed overnight a few times in a few different places as well, and nothing has ever come close to the wonderful accommodations at Sandy Haven. Between the friendly staff, the excellent meal options and sleeping... More

I absolutely loved staying at Sandy Haven! The location was perfect, right on the beach. The room was beautiful and the staff were all so friendly. The restaurant located in the hotel was marvelous and delicious. Overall, great place! I will certainly return!

The previous times we stayed at Coco La Palm, but decided we wanted to check out the more modern property right next door. When we travel we all stay in separate rooms. We have friends on... More

Dear Valued Partner, Thank you for choosing Sandy Haven resort for your recent stay in Negril, Jamaica. I presume that your stay at our property was very enjoyable with the exception of the additional person rate that you had to pay for your overnighting guest.

My husband and I spent two nights here after our wedding at the RIU. This was a paradise and the intimacy we enjoyed. The beach is amazing and the jerk chicken is awesome. We frequent Jamaica, and we will hopefully visit sandy haven again when in Negril. Perfect for a couple or relaxing getaway.
