I just spent ten glorious days at the best little place in jamaica. If your looking for a one on one experience and a no cookie cutter kind of place..this is for you. Sandy and Dillo the owners are two wonderful friendly people. They see to your every need no matter what it is. The quaint little area gives you... More

Said would make it right before we left and did not. Location is nice...NOT PRIVATE AT ALL. No way to store drinks in your... More

Greetings to all that might read this review. Being professional I will not list the reasons why this review was written so many years after she stayed here.

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

I know this is supposed to be a 'review' but I'd like to share my experience and why I was visiting Westmoreland Parish and found one of my favorite places on earth, Sandy's by the Sea. Having enjoyed Bob Marley's music my entire life, I set out on a journey to walk where he walked. Bob had a little home... More

Sandy's is what I love about Jamaica...the culture, relaxation, good company, good food, the sun, the ocean. Little Bay feels blessedly light years away from the hustle of the crowded, touristy areas, though Negril's just a boat ride away. Fresh fish, fresh vegetables and fresh fruit and healthy meals invited me to feel great. A steaming cup of Blue Mountain... More

We just spent several very relaxed days at Sandy's and we will be back. Sandy and Dillo are amazing people. They are funny, smart and warm. Fresh food everyday and prepared with fresh local fruits and veggies. Five star and not Amercanized. The place is beautiful and it's like having your own private beach. The property is well kept and... More

My husband and I recently spent the most amazing five days with Sandy, Dillo and company. The environment was so warm, friendly and inviting, that we left feeling like family, not guests. The property is amazingly beautiful, the food is fresh and delicious. I'm not sure words could accurately describe how wonderful this place is...you'll just have to experience it... More
