Sandals, Whitehouse

I gather from some of the Sandals Whitehouse reviews that there isn't much/anything off property to see/visit. True? Any excursions available?

Also, can anyone comment/compare Sandals whitehouse with Couples Negril? One better than the other?

i saw the bird lady... i had quite a good laugh

she couldn't enjoy her croissant because 3 birds were 40 yards away

i'll get pics of them and post them... looking forward to meeting these killers :)"

How shallow to laugh at someone's fear. Although I was not the "bird lady" quoted, I too found the bird situation at Whitehouse very alarming. There are many people who suffer a phobia of birds, and for those who do, Whitehouse is an exceedingly bad choice as there are flocks and flocks of birds who bombard the tables and gather at one's feet.

I love birds, in fact, living in the rural countryside I am lucky to watch anything from simple housmartins, to owls, red kites and even ospreys.

I have bird tables, and will ensure in winter that we leave plenty scraps for all of the bird life HOWEVER... put me within a few feet of one and I would scream the place down. My heart will race, and I will take a panic attack...THIS IS NOT FUNNY!!!!! I find it appalling that people laugh at someone who is frightened. MANY people have this phobia..perhaps you are one of those perfect people in life who are afraid of nothing?

Apart from anything else however, it is NOT good pratice to encourage birds into dining places and whitehouse is beyond anything I have seen in the caribbean. All due of course to the many people who persistantly feed them at the tables. These birds would survive as nature intended quite happily without fries and titbits which people constantly feed them. In Arizonas, its such a shame as birds wander freely there amongst the tables. All because people constantly encourage them.

As for the beach snack area..thats a no go at all for anyone with a bird phobia.

Before you laugh at the poor lady who obviously has such a fear, think on... its not at all funny for anyone who has a bird phobia.

Oh..and anyone who does...Sandals Whitehouse is not the resort for you.
