what a great place on go on vacation with a large extended family. We stayed in a great house with great staff, the cooking was extraordinary and the accommodations terrific. WE were able to make arrangement's for excursions with the staff at silver sands and we were well cared for. We felt safe at all times.

I thoroughly recommend Silver Sands to any one visiting Jamaica. The villas do vary so do a bit of research first. Summertime is beautifully furnished and kept. The beach is great and generally good for all ages, including children. The only disappointing thing was the general attitude of the main housekeeper, who was not very welcoming or friendly.

Thanks very much for taking the time to review Summertime at Silver Sands Jamaica. The Mysilversands team thanks you for recommending Silver Sands to anyone visiting Jamaica. You are right, the majority of guests at Silver Sands do think we have one of the best beaches on the island. We are very pleased that you have highlighted how well Summertime... More

Just spent two weeks in this great villa. It has up to 6 bedrooms, with an astonishing master suite. The staff is super friendly and helpful, especially David is a really good natured and very helpful guy. The veranda has fantastic 180 degree views of the sea and beaches with the pool down below. There is a gym in the... More

Hello, we travel very much with our two boys (10 and 18) and have tried many types of hotels and accomodations until a friend told me about mysilversands.com (rental of a villa in Jamaica). We happened to rent the Windjammer and everything was perfect! Mr Brown, the chef cooked typical jamaican food everyday, spicy just enough. Eileen was very attentive... More

In your review, you mention mysilversands.com, and this gives the impression that you booked with us, but we have no record of your booking. If you had booked with mysilversands.com, your Airport Transfers would be free, as advertised on our web site, and the price would be US$2275 per week, not US$2300 you paid. We also cannot understand your statement... More

We stayed at Quadrille in Silver Sands with 3 adult couples and one single. The house was spectacular; clean, cozy, big. Although we had a full house, we felt like we had privacy once in our own rooms. The bedrooms are set up so all the bedrooms/bathrooms are separated. The staff are great, cook amazing food, keep the grounds looking... More

I’ve been coming to Silver Sands for almost 20 years. In that time, I have stayed at several different homes…until I found Seagull Cottage. Now, we only stay at Seagull. Let me tell you why. The owner of the house is meticulous in how she takes care of the home. It feels like a real home at the beach, rather... More
