We stayed at Sandy Haven in early November and couldn't be happier with the choice. We had a wonderful ocean front room (on the second floor). We experienced no problems with the hot water, toilet ect. The house keeping staff kept our room spotless. The fridge in the room is just a wine cooler, but I don't think it was... More

Sandy Haven Resort is truly a haven. My three days there were wonderful. I could not have asked for better service, friendlier or more helpful staff, (POPS you are the best). I just loved my ocean-front room from where I was served a delicious Jamaican breakfast just one step outside on my private patio. My good size bathroom where my... More

My wife and I just got back from one our most relaxing vacations. Our stay at the Sandy Haven Resort was just wonderful. Our room was in building number 2 on the top floor with an ocean view and balcony. It was a very beautiful room with high ceilings. One bit of advice(thanks to my wife) ask them to put... More

My husband and I decided on this hotel for our 5 year anniversary; having been married in a more remote Jamaican location, we were hoping to relive the great, laid-back vibes and beautiful scenery. Neither of us is a "diva" when traveling. We knew we were getting a bargain, and didn't necessarily expect the royal treatment. However, I am sad... More

We had high hopes for this hotel after reading reviews but got a lemon of a room with active construction for our entire stay. The beach was lovely with clear blue water and beachside chairs and a bar. The rum punch was good and good price for Red Stripe. Great view from our ocean view suite. We were on the... More

STYLE: modern, stylish, clean and well maintained. Its simple chic style stood out in comparison to the other small hotel properties we walked by and through when on the beach. Based on its layout it had no real lobby or impressive grand entrance area but the lounge seating in front of the check in was charming and feltly distinctly tropical... More

TIPS: 1) ATM? taking the taxi (they have red plates) is about $3 US from Sandy haven to the roundabout. Or you can walk (it's 30 minutes, we did it like 5 times. Good exercise lol). If you pay more than $5, you're getting ripped off. Always come up with your own price, rather than asking for the price. They... More

This is a relatively new hotel (opened spring 2012) and is located about half-way along the seven mile beach. We had family who stayed here last Christmas and they enjoyed it so we came here for a 2 week vacation in October. We had a ground floor ocean-facing room which had great views and was convenient for falling out of... More

A friend we were travelling with described Sandy Haven as a "Resort in Training" - and I really can't put it any better than that. They do some things well, but they miss on a lot of touches, and service overall was sub-par. The hotel had to be less than half full while we were there, so it was extremely... More

Just an unbelievably happy place to be, to truly relax and feel the luxury of not wanting anything or not compelled to do anything. This resort is a little slice of heaven! Loved the modern, upscale rooms, beautifully maintained gardens, delicious meals, crystal clear turquoise water and caring staff-Fidel, Pops and many others. It was such a postcard moment to... More
