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. The beach is self was beautiful! Never seemed crowded and was always very well maintained. Jefferey was great at organizing any water sports we wanted... More

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. The room was filled with dead insects when we arrived. They were everywhere. I understand that you get what you pay for, but that is... More

Travelled to Jamaica for a four-day, birthday celebration. The transfer from the airport to White Sands was good, no issues. We were a group of four, check in was great, we were greeted by Francis given a quick low down and given our keys. A very nice porter named Henry took us to our rooms. The rooms were basic and...

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
