We stayed at Sandy Haven for a week in November and have a wonderful time. The hotel is lovely, clean, comfortable, and has a terrific staff! The location on the beach is perfect and there are enough chairs for each guest, none of the early morning chair claiming taking place. Beach security for the hotel is great, keeping all of... More

Although Jamaica is but a fond distant memory now, we spent 2 weeks in January at Sandy Haven - one of the best, most comfortable, cleanest hotels we've ever stayed in. Great view of the ocean and sunsets from the balcony, large room, bathroom and comfy bed - we woke up slowly each morning to the rising sun..bliss. Breakfast was... More

My husband and I went to Sandy Haven in June 2013. This was our first trip without our little one and I have to admit, I was a bit scared. We were greeted with an amazing "rum punch" and the staff was wonderful. I decided on the ocean front room, which was such a great decision. Our room consisted of... More

I just came back from a wonderful vacation from Negril and Sandy Haven made it even better. The staff is so nice and friendly. They are very quick to accomodate any problems you have as well. We booked a wonderful horse back ride on the beach through the hotel as well. The breakfast on the beach made every morning even... More

I feel that it is important to set the bar straight on this place. Looks are extremely deceiving and it it really too bad that the main problem is embedded at the top of the food chain at Sandy Haven Resort. I was a bit hesitant in booking this hotel as although there were many great reviews there were a... More

Sandy Haven in Negril is one hotel that I will definitely return to. My daughter and I stayed at Sandy Haven during Christmas vacation. Well, what a wonderful; surprise. The facility is well kept, clean and updated. But what makes this resort so special is the staff. Everyone from the desk staff, waitstaff and housekeeping staff is just so friendly,... More

I found this hotel on Jetsetter.com, read the reviews and took the leap. We were very happy with our choice. The staff is friendly and wants to make sure you have what you need. We stayed in the ocean front on the third floor which was fantastic. The ceilings are very high in these rooms. The décor is modern, clean... More

Our stay at Sandy Haven was fantastic. We stayed in a junior suite, which was lovely and big and beautifully decorated. Th breakfasts were fabulous although the staff never seemed to be able to remember everything you'd ordered, even when they'd written it down. We joked about it most of the time but it was a bit ridiculous on our... More

Just back from 6 days here. The staff was friendly. The room - 3rd floor ocean front- was modern and very clean. We only had dinner Saturday night for the beach BBQ. Good ribs and jerk chicken. We did have breakfast here everyday and enjoyed the continental option,eggs and omelets. The Beach -- Plenty of chairs available and spots in... More

I stayed at Sandy Haven with friends just after the new year. Overall it was great! From the start till the end, we truly felt like the hotel staff wanted to make our vacation a positive and memorable one. There were a couple tiny hiccups. But they were ironed out kindly and professionally by the staff. Hats off to NaKesha... More
