Book somewhere else in advance if you can. I got into town without a reservation and ended up here - the location is fabulous, but $120/night for the room I got was outrageously expensive. When I arrived there was no loo roll, and no way for me to find staff to ask for it. Also there was a mat covering...

We've stayed here every winter for more than ten years. It's had its ups and downs, but you can't beat the location -- right on the water. Walk easily to everywhere else in this part of Treasure Beach, great food, friendly people, safe community. Absolutely no frills, but the real deal.

We arrived and the reservation I made for 4 nights was unknown by the owner/management not sure who he was exactly. My bf and I were given a small room with 2 single beds, a fan and bathroom with shower in the "first house". 40$/ night US, relatively cheap but had to push the beds together, people could sit literally...

It's now called "Golden Sands Beach Resort", but it's neither a resort nor a guest house - just a terrible place. Had to stay here for a night because the Waikiki Guest House was booked out and we arrived late. Had to pay USD 50.- for a cheerless, bare-bone room with just a queensize bed and not much more -...

I love Treasure Beach, and last year we looked at the beach cottage in Golden Sands. It was great and I booked it in March 2014. I checked again in December just to be sure cause we were going to stay for 14 nights. It was double booked but I decided to go anyhow just in case we could get...

If you're expecting normal resort fare, this place is NOT for you. If you are just coming to get away from it all (and I mean it all) and just enjoy the beach, you might love this place. It is about a 2.5 hour trip from the airport in Montego Bay. We arrived late at night and were disappointed with...

First and foremost this is NOT A RESORT…We arrived at the so called "resort" as stated on their website and were greeted by Garnett, he directed us to the Frenchman's Reef restaurant of which I might be owned by the same person (see review and pictures in my other reviews). We stayed at the Irie Rest Guesthouse the night before...

This place calls itself Golden Sands Beach Resort on its Web site, and it's listed here as a guest house, but it's neither and is really more of a basic motel. It's a bit over-priced too, as the rooms are nothing fancy and there's only cold water/showers. But view of the ocean and sunset from the rooms facing the beach...

Unfortunately this place was not clean and the service was poor. Ants in the shower. Greasy kitchenette, not clean. Dishes/cupboards are 30 years old and ratty. Had to ask 3 times for towels and the owner claimed he didn't know where the extra towels were kept. Very noisy bar/club nearby that plays load music until 3 AM. We were required...

We found this place quite by accident - on the recommendation of abother guest. We stayed in one of the three backpacker rooms - easily the best we stayed in, at this price, in Jamaica. The room consisted of two single beds, private bathroom and floor fan. The guesthouse is located right on the beach and next to an excellent...
