First and foremost this is NOT A RESORT…We arrived at the so called "resort" as stated on their website and were greeted by Garnett, he directed us to the Frenchman's Reef restaurant of which I might be owned by the same person (see review and pictures in my other reviews). We stayed at the Irie Rest Guesthouse the night before... More

This place calls itself Golden Sands Beach Resort on its Web site, and it's listed here as a guest house, but it's neither and is really more of a basic motel. It's a bit over-priced too, as the rooms are nothing fancy and there's only cold water/showers. But view of the ocean and sunset from the rooms facing the beach... More

Unfortunately this place was not clean and the service was poor. Ants in the shower. Greasy kitchenette, not clean. Dishes/cupboards are 30 years old and ratty. Had to ask 3 times for towels and the owner claimed he didn't know where the extra towels were kept. Very noisy bar/club nearby that plays load music until 3 AM. We were required... More

We found this place quite by accident - on the recommendation of abother guest. We stayed in one of the three backpacker rooms - easily the best we stayed in, at this price, in Jamaica. The room consisted of two single beds, private bathroom and floor fan. The guesthouse is located right on the beach and next to an excellent... More

The south coast of Jamaica has a charm all of its own, I found that out the morning I woke up at The Golden Sands Beach Resort in Treasure Beach, Jamaica. I got here pretty late so me and mine headed straight to bed. That was a great idea too because something about the Caribbean Sea lapping at the beach... More

The last time we stayed at the Golden Sands it was terrible. It wasn't very clean. When we first got there there was a rat in the room. They did change our room only to have mouse droppings in the next one. They came to make our room and they actually put ripped sheets on our bed and we had... More

Golden Sands is a clean, quiet, comfortable, and inexpensive ($45-55 US) "motel" on Calabash Bay in the community of Treasure Beach, which has about 12 small, low-key guest houses and hotels under the palms in a line along the sea. The only amenity that GS offers is a bar, but there are small shops and basic restaurants an easy walk... More
