I've been visiting White Sands for some time and over the years the staff has become like family to me. I always look forward to seeing everyone when I return. On this last trip in April 2016, I arrived in Negril pretty sick. After two nights in my room, my condition got much worse, in fact life threatening. I was... More

We've stayed at White Sands the last three years and will be going back this coming spring. The stretch of beach they have is clean and well looked after by the staff. Bartenders Paul and Tony will mix you up the daily drink special with a smile and cool Caribbean vibe. They're open for breakfast and lunch but not to... More

The location of the hotel is probably the best part. All of the rooms whether you are on the garden side (where we stayed) or on the beach side were very close to the beach.

Thank you for your review. We are truly blessed to be located on the best part of Negril beach. It was not how the family planned it when we opened in 1970, it is just the way Negril developed. And luckily for us, where we are, there are no large hotels. Our section of the beach is quiet and laid... More

If I could give zero stars rating I would! I could not check out fast enough out of this horrible subpar joke of a hotel. First of all the hotel room description is deliberately misleading. They don't explain that a "seaside room" does not give you a view of the sea. It simply means the room is in the general... More

I am an avid hostel/BnB traveler. I feel that you get the most from your stay when you are not entrapped in an all inclusive resort. However, staying at White Sands Negril was a mistake.
