I researched this place heavily before booking my trip here with Miss Sandy and Mr. Dillo, as I was traveling by myself outside of the country for the first time. When Miss Sandy told me she had researched me too before my arrival, I knew she was legit...meaning she is about protecting her family and her business (much respect). So... More

We traveled as a couple to Sandy's by the Sea. From the time Sandy first spotted us at the airport and on we had an amazing vacation. In the past we have traveled to Negril several times, staying at all inclusive resorts. This time we wanted to try rural Jamaica. So if you're curious about leaving the familiar confines of... More

I have been to Jamaica dozens and dozens of times and have stayed virtually all over the island in various kinds of resorts, hotels, b&bs etc. Sandys by the Sea is one of my very favorite experiences and acommodations. Staying here, is experiencing the real charm of Jamaica and island life. It is NOT about buffet lines, organized beach/ pool... More

We traveled as a group of 5 adults to Sandy's By The Sea during the Christmas holidays to get away from the commercialism and bustle and cold. What an excellent decision!! Hosts Dillo and Sandy were so kind and their B&B was lovely. There are 4 rooms, therefore, we were the ONLY people there. This area is remote, no tourists... More

"Give me some of that"! Truly a unique spot to vacation or live for that matter. We are so gracious of the hospitality at sandysbythesea.com that we had to come back a 3rd time. We've figured out that there is absolutely no reason to leave this beautiful property during our stay, just sit back and absorb the vibes. Fresh seafood,... More

I totally forgot to review this place after we returned from our trip to Jamaica in May/June. We visited two different locations, and I highly recommend having a jungle/mountain portion as well as a beach portion of a trip, if you're heading to Jamaica. Sandy's....oh my! First of all, it's kind of secluded, which was what we were looking for,... More

We would be staying in Beaches Negril with the family and I wanted to extend my trip and experience real Jamicia.

Like WHOA..! This was our second time to Sandy's By The Sea in 3 years and definitely not the last. We wanted something different from our travel(s) and this time we got it.
