My wife and I spent a fantastic week at the Sandals Whitehouse in mid-February and we had such a great time. The resort is beautiful and so well maintained. The staff in the restaurants and bars were friendly and the service was second to none. Great evening entertainment. It was a fabulous vacation experience.

Staff is amazing Henry at the French side pool is awesome as well as Steven. The resort is gorgeous and the restaurants all were very good. The beach is awesome even if a couple times it was really windy.

We just returned home from Whitehouse on March 30 and it honestly was the first time I was genuinely sad to leave a resort. This was the second time we've been to a Sandals and it just keeps getting better!!

Location was great. Food was amazing (thank goodness they have a great gym!!) and staff was exceptional. We also really enjoyed the couples massage at Red Lane spa- very relaxing!

We'd like to thank the whole dive team, especially String-bean for being a great dive master and showing us some neat sea life. He went above and beyond, repairing some of our scuba gear when it was unexpectedly needed. Also, Anton as our dive boat captain- keeping us safe even though we had some windy days.
As well, Henry, Wade, Avril, Troy were excellent staff who were always smiling and doing whatever they could to make our trip the best. Staff in general was amazing, always friendly and making sure everything was "irie"!! We've missed names I'm sure but we appreciated every one!
It was impressive how often the management were out and about making sure things were smooth and checking with guests.
High recommendations and we can't wait for our next Sandals vacation!

Just spent a week at Sandals Whitehouse and enjoyed every minute. The property is beautiful and well maintained. Loved the isolation of the location and the 2 mile stretch of beautiful beach. The staff were all outstanding and one who stands out the most is Synovia. If you go to Guiseppes make sure to ask for her. She made our experience so special that we returned twice!! Thank You Synovia!

My Wife and I were at the Whitehouse 12-19 March 2013. It was our 2nd time there and it was terrific in every regard! From the cleaning staff right up to Mr. G, the GM everyone was wonderful and went the extra mile to make our stay memorable. The executive Sous Chef Laire Robinson was amazing as always he took care of my wife Susan with her food allergies. Meeting us every day and helping her with food choices and making special meals for her. Laire is wonderful person who genuinely cares and it shows in everything he does! Sheldon our concierge was terrific and very attentive to our needs and requests.
The entertainment staff, Geraldine, Wayon, Cheldon and Shane, as well as Anthony at the pool bar made our stay and that of our friends very enjoyable and extremely fun!

Once again the combination of the staff, the rooms, the restaurants made for the best vacation possible, can't wait to get back there next year!

Room Tip: The Italian village is our favorite, beautiful view of the ocean.

I don't even know where to begin!! We had a great time.....amazing food.....beautiful room!! Our butlers....Joy and Chris were beyond amazing. We stayed in the Italian Village….def worth staying there. We were 8 people all together...and all the staff was very accommodating to us. The entertainment crew was the best!! Cheldon and Wayne are brilliant!! We met Mr. G who runs everything and he went out of his way to make sure we were happy at all times. We have been to 4 other Sandals properties and this one is by far the BEST! It has the best food, best staff and is the nicest! We will def be going back!!!

Room Tip: Italian Village all the way!!

This was our first trip to Whitehouse, third Sandals/Beaches vacation and the first to inspire us to write a review. We have used Trip advisor many times in the past and enjoy the honest reviews from fellow travelers. Hope this is helpful for others as well.
Property: The property is beautiful, the isolated location makes it special and feel private. For a very large resort, Sandals has succeeded in making their patrons find spots that still allow for intimate and larger group social settings. Some area need some sprucing up but saw staff very busy at repairs and never in a way that got in the way of a relaxing vacation for us! Heard from the Manager that more room upgrades are planned.
The food: Wow!! Plentiful and savory! Top notch, and lots of choices. The escargot, and all the seafood at all restaurants were real treats. The desserts were tempting and varied for lots of choice.
The weather: We just arrived home and we wish we could go back. Do not forget your sunscreen, Jamaica does not disappoint. It was a bit windy, watersports were cancelled a couple of times, our last visit at Negril had more varied watersports avalibility, but this week was windy at Negril as well.
The most noteable:
Staff was amazing!!!!
Troy,Wade,Henry,Shane,Avril,and special guest,Jennifer Brown,were some of many who made our vacation awesome. The welcoming staff, smiles and fist pumps were wonderful. Michael challenged me in the gym and facilities were great.
The staff always are proud of their island and were local ambassadors for their resort and their country. Staff singing and laughing? Who would not want to come back? Canada could use some lessons from Sandals staff on how to show the pride in their country and what it can offer. When you ask for coffee, the reply "More Blue Mountain Jamacian coffee?". I love the good bye song from the staff and the visibility of the managers.

Travelling across the island was very interesting, not too long for me, and the drivers were humorous and got us back and forth safely. The ride added to the experience.

Always look forward to another Sandals vacation,next years location ???? but Sandals for sure.
