If you're look for a place that isn't huge and can easily get to your room and beach, this is it. We decided to try something different rather than the all inclusive big resort options and did not regret it. The staff is amazing, the security really cared about your safety and Pops is a father figure to everyone. The...

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed August 6, 2016

After many years of staying at different properties in Negril for our annual trip back to Jamaica, this is by far the best!! The oceanfront room views are not blocked by the beachfront restaurant, as are most of the other properties. Additionally, the rooms are clean and beautifully decorated with comfortable bedding and plenty of space. We highly recommend this...

This place was a little gem, right on 7 mile beach. We had an ocean view room that went right out to the Tiki bar, frozen drinks were to die for!!! Pops was the best, he will do anything for you to make your stay more pleasant and always had chairs and towels ready. The restaurant in the hotel, Bongos,...

Came for a weekend with 2 girlfriends to run the Reggae Run. Not impressed upon checking in as we had an issue with our booking and were treated like we had done something wrong. Not a warm friendly reception upon arrival. No help trouble shooting booking. Pool was closed for 2 days, air conditioning leaked, safe broken and not replaced...

We booked SHR on a Monday and traveled there on Wednesday - a very, very last minute trip! We booked a package through Apple Vacations, which turned out to be a pretty good deal. Transport from and to the airport, a visit from an agent to check on us - all really good. SHR is just great in most every...

My husband and I stayed at Sandy Haven Resort for our mini honeymoon. It was a beautiful couple days. Checking in was so easy and they accommodated my husbands request for an odd check in because it was our wedding day so checking in wasn't a priority and they were so understanding. We did not have much staff interaction but...

I visited Sandy Haven on a 7 day trip as a solo female in my 30s. I had a great deal of trepidation because I've been to Jamaica numerous times and I'm aware that security can be hit or miss. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the security was excellent. I did not once feel concerned while on property...
