I've been staying in Jamaica quite a few times and I always wind up at the bar here.. This hotel has been very warm and inviting.. it doesn't feel like a vacation it feels like we are at home.. One with the locals and everyone always remembers us from previous visits so it feels like we've never left.. I love... More

Hello Shagani, Thank you for taking the time to write your review. Glad you liked your room and that the 'majority' of our team treated you well and took care of you. How frustrating to read your comments about the grill staff. My sincere apologies, there is no excuse for this sort of thing. As an owner I sometimes scratch... More

WiFi works about 50% at the time. NO TV in any room(2016). Pool is only for display, is foggy, nobody ever used it. After I arrived late, next day I went to downtown to exchange money, but before I met a White Sand security guard there, begging for a coffee, then telling me to don't lie to him that I... More

I do apologize for the WiFi. Within the past week we were hit by strong electrical storm and it damaged a piece of hardware. The WiFi was out and and/off for 2 days trying to fix it. It took some time but we did fix it and the WiFi is running well now. We do not charge for the WiFi... More

Planned a trip to Negril for an anniversary and decided on White Sands based on budget and favourable reviews. I wasn't at all disappointed. The hotel is located on the 7 mile beach which is all white sands, shallows and pleasantly warm, blue seas. The room was clean and my only observation is that it could use more lighting (it... More

Campbell, Thank you for your trip report, glad you enjoyed your time with us and appreciate your feedback. Sorry to read about the moped guy, the Jamaican Government is doing a very poor job of managing the legalization and distribution of marijuana. They are causing their own problems and it is very frustrating for the hotel industry. I will forward... More

This hotel was the icing on the cake for what ended up being an incredible vacation. Every person greets you with a smile and is more than willing to assist your every whim. While not a luxury resort, the intimacy that comes with the smaller, more simplistic layout only adds to the relaxation one is looking for in a Jamaican... More

White sands is an unassuming 'get what you pay for' type of hotel. We stayed for 10 days. Our room was on the beach side of the hotel and our terrace looked out over the sea. The room was large with air conditioning and a fan so never felt oppressive, despite the outside temperature and humidity being extremely high. All... More
