This is our third stay at Sandy Haven and we were reminded of why We keep going back for more. The accommodations are fantastic, rooms are large, clean and comfortable. We cannot say enough about the amazing staff, from the front desk to the cleaners everyone was truly amazing. Pops, Andre, Quest, Barbie Chucky and Keon to name a few of the awesome people that ensure we were always taken care of. I just left and I’m already looking forward to my next trip back

We just returned from Sandy Haven and are already planning a trip back in 6 months. It was a perfect vacation, in a huge part due to Sandy Haven and its dedicated staff. The premises are stunning, situated on a private slice of beach with rooms overlooking the ocean. Each room has a well sized balcony where you can have breakfast delivered to your room. Because it is a small resort, you get the luxe experience of having everything you need at your fingertips, but at the same time without the big gawdy feel of being somewhere with a ton of rooms. In fact, it often feels like a quiet secluded semi private beach, even though it is on the main strip of Negril. After just a couple of days we knew (and loved) everyone who worked there. Rohan and Ralph at the front desk were professional, friendly and responsive to all of our needs and wants. Sandy haven has 2 restaurants, both of which have an array of scrumptious food options and a great reasonably priced. Kian and Kerry mix a delicious drink and are very attentive, and Nicardo and Pops are always around if you need a beach towel or advice about things to do. We absolutely loved staying at Sandy haven, they went above and beyond to make my birthday so special and I can’t wait to go back.

My husband and I stayed here for 8 days the end of May and had such a wonderful time. Due to the pandemic, their numbers are down which is sad to see, but the staff and owner, Ann Chin and Owen, the manager, were friendly, upbeat and helpful all week. Vanessa and Kevin, who served us breakfast each morning were wonderful. The continental breakfast is a lovely plate of fresh fruit, breads and muffins and wonderful french press full of delicious Blue Mountain coffee! We ate from the menu a few times and the food was delicious! Rooms were spacious and clean with a nice patio

I cant say enough about this property. Since my first time there, all I have been raving about to all my family and friends is how perfect this resort is. Its a perfect place to do absolutely nothing!! Sun Sand and Drinks Thats all you need. No dressing up for dinners, no fussing. Beautiful, clean, modern rooms. Service amazing!! They did everything to make us feel welcome and comfortable. The management is unreal! So nice and helpful. The staff is constantly cleaning and maintaining the property and even the beach to perfection My sister is actually going there next week because of all the raving I've been doing since I got home last week. Again, couldnt ask for a more perfect place. You must get the beachfront room. Its sooooooo worth it!! can't wait to get there again!

My husband and I just returned home from am amazing 5 nights in paradise. This hotel is absolutely beautiful and the staff are very accommodating. Everyone is very friendly and seem to truly enjoy their jobs. The hotel grounds and rooms are very clean and well kept. Negril was very quiet, as tourism is still not what it was, but we certainly enjoyed having the beautiful beach and hotel nearly to ourselves.
