I just spent a week at White Sands with a group called
TripsForWomen. I had a truly enjoyable vacation. I was very
comfortable staying at this resort, which in my opinion has the nicest
beach of all the hotels in the area. There is lush foliage on the beach
and throughout the property. The sand is white and clean, and the aqua
sea has smooth sand wherever you place your feet. The view of the beach
from the water, is breathtakingly beautiful. Looking out onto the sea,
from the breakfast area is also inspiring. The staff is warm and
friendly. I always felt at home. It seems that all the guests are
friendly too. From this central location, it was easy to go to all the
restaurants and shops. This was my best Jamaican vacation.

We have been returning to the White Sands for thirty years. It is not fancy but sooo comfortable and safe. The owners are like family to the guests and strive to make everyone feel very welcome. The rooms are spare but comfortable . Our kids grew up here and now return with their families.We love the White Sands and everyone connected with this local owned hotel.

The White Sands Hotel is the best place for ANYONE to stay. From families to spring breakers, this hotel makes you feel top shelf. The staff is extremely helpful and always available to assist. The food service (which costs extra after the initial delicious breakfast) is tailored to your tastes. Francis, the general manager, was forever gracious and attended to our demands, which were frequent. Also, the hotel grounds were immaculate and rivaled the surrounding beauty. Hanging out at the beachside bar is something I'll never forget! Make sure you try the "Dirty Bananas"... they're sure to quickly become a favorite. If you're heading to Negril, make sure you check Francis and the gang out. You will not be disappointed. If you go there during Thanksgiving holiday, stop by and say hello... I'll see you there!

We planned to stay at White Sands for four days after reading the reviews at TripAdvisor, but changed our minds after one night. First impressions were not good during check in.. and after we saw the dark rooms and scummy bathrooms decided to find another place to stay.. Tried For Real Beach Resorts a few hotels down the beach, and were pleasantly surprised. We won't be going back to White Sands...because while other rooms might be nicer, the one we had just didn't live up to the images on the website, and the staff just couldn't be bothered.. :(

Perfect location on the beach in Negril for this family run resort. The staff is friendly, the rooms clean, value is terrific and many of us return year after year. If your looking for a comfortable and relaxing place to spend sometime without mortgaging your house this is it!!

My friend and I were at White Sands May 2002. We had such a great time. Management was very professional and the staff was kind and sweet to us. Everybody there definitely made our 10 days in Negril very comfortable and interesting. The beach there is just amazing! If you want to experience the true Negril and if you don't want to spend all you money on were you sleep...choose White Sands!

Having just returned from our first trip to Jamaica for a birthday celebration, we have only praise for White Sands. The location, the accommodation and especially the staff were truely amazing. We were taken care of from start to finish, from Patrick collecting us from MoBay, Henry (the best guy around), nothing was ever a problem, Kay and the other housekeepers who cooked an amazing birthday dinner and kept the place clean and homely and Paul and Tony who made the most amazing cocktails, dangerous as they were!! Francis thanks for making our trip run smoothly. The family owned White Sands was the best place to spend a birthday celebration. 6 of us stayed in the 4 roomed villa which was better than the internet could show. We were made to feel at home and could not have asked for any more. White Sands was safe and secure and has guarantteed we will return. Having spent 10 days there we can understand why many people return year after year. See you again soon! Helen and Polly.
