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

My husband and I stayed at Sandy Haven for a week to celebrate our honeymoon. We just checked out yesterday. We had a wonderful stay and from the minute we checked in we felt like family. Every single staff person we encountered was awesome! Great attitudes, helpful, and friendly personalities. Since it is the slow season in Negril it felt... More

My wife and I vacationed at Sandy Haven Resort the first week in October. The hotel was everything we hoped it would be and more. It is a great smaller boutique style hotel in the heart of Negril beach. The central location along with a great staff made for a wonderful stay. You walk right out of the hotel onto... More

My wife and I booked early Oct 2014 for our 25th Wedding Anniversary. The hotel was in a great location with a great beach. Everyone remebered our name after the first day and did anything they could to make us feel at home. They took the worries away. The owner was present and made it a point of knowing the... More

The rooms were nice and clean, The staff were attentive and informative and most of all the A/C was freezing cold which for me is always a problem for me but this time. The food at the hotel restaurants was soooo good! We loved it and would defiantly... More

While the resort, it's rooms, beach and grounds are perfect the real jewel, heart and soul of the hotel... More

This resort exceeded all of our expectations...which were high. The staff is unbelievably attentive, the property is impeccably maintained and the rooms are beautiful. We were there during the off-season so the resort and beaches were not crowded. Everyone we spoke with, from the managers to the housekeepers were very helpful and more than willing to suggest places to go... More
