Like WHOA..! This was our second time to Sandy's By The Sea in 3 years and definitely not the last. We wanted something different from our travel(s) and this time we got it. We never left the property because we never had to. The sound of the sea coming into the lagoon with the raggae music in Rasta Dillo's kitchen... More

Found this place by accident, went to book for 1 night and so impressed that we stayed for another extra two nights as well as Airport ride. It was our super score that offered great transportation,great rooms,fair prices, guide service, boat transportation as well as fishing. Lots of places say they are real but Sandys gave us a real Jamaica... More

My husband and I wanted something other than busy all inclusive places. We had the time of our life here with Sandy and Dillo. I have never been so relaxed on a vacation. Everything was amazing..the food, the view, the weather and most of all the hosts. We can't wait to go back and pay all of the friends we... More

You would like to see something different than normal hotels and tourist centers? Don't worry! That's not an advertisement for Sandy and Dillo. On the contrary, it's a compliment! We didn't know what to expect, just that their little retreat is "in the middle of nowhere" and that we will be able to live among Jamaican people. And that was... More

We selected Sandy's at the beginning of our 2-week journey around Jamaica. We passed Negril and were happy that we left the hussle behind us and entered the beautiful and remote area around Little Bay. Our stay with Sandy and Dillo really brought us to rest. We stayed in the bungalow and we were pleased that we could set our... More
