We stayed at Queen's Cottage, which is the best located, 10m from the ocean. Rental cost was about $3000 for one week, which includes 3 bedrooms, water, gas, electricity, and the services of Nadine and Sharon (see below). Weather was warm/hot and humid but with a cooling breeze (not to say pretty strong wind actually!). Occasionally overcast but odd heavy... More

We have stayed at many different types of hotels and resorts and rent a beach house in the US yearly. Renting a house at Silver Sands was an amazing experience. Jamahome is waterfront, which provided a gentle breeze in the screened-in sunroom and VERY short walk to the water! The staff, Claudette and Pauline were fantastic! There meals rival the... More

On the third day of my wife and I's honeymoon about $500 was stolen from our personal travel bags that were placed within our luggage bags. Mangement was horrible and disrespectful as well. No compensation was offered and the manager told me to follow up with "legal manuevers" if I strongly wanted reimbursment. Otherwise Jamaica was terrific it was too... More

Management response:

I was saddened to read of this visitor's experience at Silver Sands. My company, Mysilversands, is a professional management and marketing agency for many of the privately-owned villas and cottages at Silver Sands. There are other agents representing properties there, and some home owners take their own bookings. When I read this review, I tried to get information about it... More

We reserved a villa five months in advance for friends coming in from the States. A couple weeks before our guests arrived, Silver Sands told us the unit was in "disrepair" and they could not honor the booking. If ind it interesting that it only fell in disrepair a few weeks before we were scheduled to stay there. When asked... More

My Company, Mysilversands, is very sorry that it is not able to provide this customer with the property booked for a stay of 3 nights, February 18 - 21, 2011. This was not any attempt at a "Bait and Switch Rip Off" but due to circumstances beyond our control. The property has fallen below our standards and we do not... More

Wanted to stay in Silver Sands, Jamaica,because of prior pleasant reviews. However,we did not realize that the individual villas could differ so dramatically. We also did not realize that some villas are off the preferred listing and will be given to various other sources to be rented. When we arrived after a three hour trip , the refrigerator was not...

It's been over twenty years since a visit to Silver Sands in Duncans Jamaica. We are very familiar with the island having lived there in the eighties and regular twics a yer visitors since then. Usually we gravitate towards Negril, but this time we decided to take in the north coast. Silver Sands is a gated community on the water... More

We didn't see any reviews of this house so I wanted to be sure to write one. The house is as it appears online. The staff, Caroline and Lettis were lovely. Everyday the entire house was cleaned. We didn't need laundry done but it was offered. The house is comfortable, not fancy, and suits families. Doctor Bird is a 6... More
