Another great stay at Sandy Haven Resort in Negril, Jamaica. Truly one of the best hotels on the beach. Quiet and quaint, with the best staff. Totally secure on the best part of 7 mile beach. Always enjoy my stay here and will definitely be returning.

My fiance and I stayed here for 8 days beginning of March - our first stay here. Sandy Haven is a very nice smaller feel resort with top notch service. We had an ocean view room which had a nice patio with a view. The room itself was wood floor, flat screen TV, AC and a very nice double sink...

We thoroughly enjoyed 10 days at Sandy Have Resort. The beach was perfect, beautiful white sand, turquoise clean water, gentle waves and easy walking. There are enough beach chairs and water toys for everyone to enjoy. We were pleasantly surprised when we checked in and found that our room had been upgraded. We arrived just in time to walk through...

This is marketed as a luxury resort. We booked in for our honeymoon as we wanted to stay at a luxury boutique hotel that we thought would provide a friendly service and possibly a ‘feel good factor’ that would be nicer than staying at a chain. Firstly, it was disappointing that the email sent by my husband was disregarded and...

A very great place! I would say this is the best value in Negril. Small place. Nice staff. This part of jamaica is not known for being very high end... but sandy haven was comfortable and clean. I think it has the best beach area out of all the competition... it must be known that the pool is not very...

Just returned from a week at Sandy Haven and beautiful Negril Jamaica! Hotel was very nice and staff was beyond accommodating. Only thing I didn't like about it was there is an actual "key" for the room and you only get one. Also the Maid left our sliding glass door open on two different days when she was done cleaning...

Just returned from a 5 night stay at Sandy Haven Resort. We were very happy with the room, the beach, the service at the beach bar and the lunch food.
