My boyfriend and I had the pleasure of staying at Sandy Haven for 8 nights, the first of week of March, for a romantic getaway. We LOVED every minute of our stay! The hotel is quaint, charming, nicely appointed, quiet, and ideally situated on the stunning 7-mile beach. Our room was on the 3rd floor which I would highly recommend... More

Very chic European-styled boutique hotel. The large rooms are tastefully decorated. The hotel has a nice location in the middle of Negril's 7-mile beach strip. You are literally steps from the beach. The staff work really hard to make your stay memorable. The hotel is quiet. The spa menu is limited but service is great. A proper complimentary breakfast would... More

I stayed at Sandy Haven this past week for Spring Break and really enjoyed it! Negril doesn't have very big resorts or hotels. Most of the hotels are very plain and modest and I would say the same about the all-inclusive resorts we saw. Even though Sandy Haven doesn't have all the amenities you would expect from a 4-Star hotel... More

We enjoyed our stay we could interact as little or as much as we wanted. Food good, wine list limited. Much nicer than the all inclusive for us! Cable only basic channels. Room big clean and comfortable. Wonderful location and having the beach, pool and spa was really nice. Servers could us some training but very nice. Would stay again... More

The resort is in a great location right on the 7 mile beach, the hotel is very nice looking on the exterior and not bad on the interior either but it was night and day from the place we stayed in Ocho Rios (Hermosa Cove). The reception was pretty bad, they were not helpful and didn't seem to care to... More

We went with friends and booked 2 rooms through tripadvisor and got a discount too. One room was upgraded to sea facing. (+) Location is excellent - on the beach so you are connected to all the restaurants and bars. (+) The rooms and bathroom were very clean and spacious with a small dressing room, so there was ample space... More

Me and my boyfriend and a 2 week stay in this wonderful resort and I must say the staff were very friendly towards us - We was able to book a double room with double bed which made the trip really enjoyable and such an adventure I would certainly recommend this resort to any gay couples that seek adventure but...

Greeted with smiles and open arms. Had some issues with the meal options. (Traveling with my boyfriend who is a practicing gluten free-vegan). When I booked the reservation I was told his dietary requirements would be "No problem." But after we tried Bongos the first night, he was very disappointed with the options and he went to bed hungry that... More

A nice hotel that could have been really great but unfortunately the staff is not committed at giving the guest an enjoyable stay. Not a very friendly reception when we checked in. We had to remind the staff to clean our room. We had to wait for more than one hour each morning for the breakfast to be served. The... More

This was my first trip to Negril. My check in was handled efficiently and I was escorted to my room. The next morning tried to take a shower. Started out right but the steady flow turned to a slow drip of cold water and even in the Caribbean theres nothing like a hot shower. After calling the front desk and... More
