Another fun trip to SWH! Many thanks to Mr. G, Rick, Jeffrey, Conor and all the other great employees at SWH. We really enjoyed having a room on an upper floor with a fantastic view. Pools all had a good supply of floats for guests to use which meant people did not hoard them.

Small suggestion would be to post the menu for lunch outside of the Bayside restaurant. If the menu is posted outside you would not have people coming into Bayside wet, just to look over the buffet to decide if they would like the selection that day.

Already booked to return!

This was our 7th yr anniversary and first time vacationing outside of the US. I read many reviews and most are true based on our experience at Sandals Whitehouse.

We stayed 7 nights and enjoyed every single minute. There's so much to do every night at the resort that you never have leave but I do suggest doing an excursion. We did the Go Native tour (Negril, local shopping and
the famous Rick's Cafe) as well as YS Falls. I would recommend both!

We ate at all the restaurants (including the Jerk Pit)and thought the food was great! We were well fed everyday.

We loved it so much we booked a return trip for next year at Sandals Ochio Rios in a Butler Suite. It is worth the extra money.

We went on our first couples only vacation in August of 2014. We had previously done two family vacations at Beaches - Turks & Caicos and we loved those trips. For both of those vacations, we had worked with Amy McHugh from Dream Makers Vacation Services and she was great. She really knew the resort and made sure all of our needs were met. We contacted her for this trip as we really were not sure which resort would suit us best. Amy listened to our interests and recommended we go with Sandals Whitehouse. She then took care of all the details, including booking Club Mobay, a must do as you migrate through the airport in Jamaica. We highly recommend Amy as she really knows the resorts and makes sure you are well taken care of.

We could not have asked for a better trip. It was just right for us. We were upgraded to a suite in the Italian Village and had breathtaking views of the beach and ocean. Brittanya from Club Sandals was great. We wanted to be able to keep in touch with home and she took a lot of time to make sure all of our phones and iPads were set up to do FaceTime. We told her we were celebrating my wife's birthday. We booked a morning massage and a candlelight dinner on her birthday, which were both great. Brittanya and the housekeeping team also decorated our room for her birthday - what a great surprise!!

On our first night, we saw the Silver Birds Steel Drum Band. That was the best show. If you go to Sandals Whitehouse, be sure to stay over a Saturday night so you can see them. Both the music and dancing was incredible.

In terms of food, we had breakfast every day at the buffet, where Wayne made awesome omelets. He also talked us through the various Jamaican cuisine options. He also worked at the Jerk Chicken stand at lunch so we would get Jerk Chicken and then go to Guisseppe's and order pizza. We would eat the Jerk Chicken while waiting on the pizza. Both were great. We tried the various restaurants for dinner and all were good but our favorites were Neptune's and Eleanor's.

Throughout the week, we split our time between the beach and the pool. The entertainment staff and the bartenders really made the trip. For my wife's birthday, Prince sang a beautiful birthday song for my wife at the pool. We also got to know Wayan from the Entertainment team (who is a great dancer - he should be on 'So you Think You Can Dance') who was always a lot of fun and got us involved in many of the fun activities. We loved the bartenders and spent a good deal of time at the swim up bars. One day it was raining and we waited out the rain with Shamone. We had so much fun!! She made us all kinds of fun drinks and told us all about Jamaica. We were also well taken care of by Avril, Renaldo and Anakay.

The resort was beautiful and the service was great. The staff at Whitehouse works so hard to make your trip great and they are so friendly. We had a wonderful experience and can't wait to try another Sandals trip next year. We are interested in other Sandals resorts but it would be really hard to top Whitehouse.

My husband & I finally took our honeymoon (about 12 years later) and we went to Sandals Whitehouse in Jamaica. We had problems getting our passports, which in turn we had to push back our trip from the middle of July to the middle of August. Then, flying out of Vegas at the start of our honeymoon became a nightmare. Long story short, I will NEVER use Spirit airlines again! We were stuck in Chicago for a day/night when we were supposed to be on the beach in Jamaica. So, we lost an entire day. When we did get to the resort, all the stress & woes just washed away from us.

This place is amazing! Our room and location were perfect. Every meal we had was delicious. The drinks were kind of strong, but I'm not much of a drinker (although we drank all day, everyday while out there!) The staff was friendly and the grounds were beautiful. We woke up early every morning to see the sun rise on the beach. Every afternoon it rained, which was ok for us since we live in a desert and don't see much rain. The sunsets were gorgeous….full of golden colors!

We experienced so many new things while there. Different flavors for the food, new flowers to appreciate, new sounds to listen to. The laid back vibe out there will definately have an affect on you. No worries mon! We're hoping we can keep this mantra with us as we head back into work schedules & reality. We enjoyed the serenity there too. NO KIDS!!!!! That was key for us, since we don't have children ourselves and prefer not to be around screaming kids. It was nice to see other couples holding hands and enjoying themselves too. ONE LOVE is the motto there and you can feel it.

We are hoping we can continue to take trips like this, and will use Sandals again. We want to check out other Sandals resorts. We realized life goes too fast and we need to have moments like this every now and then. YEAH MON!!!! :)

In early August of this year my wife and I spend a week at this resort and once again we had the time of our lives. Actually this was our third time going to this resort, so that tells the story of how rich the experience is there. It was nice to see that they are constantly adding more facilities to an already awesome resort and that made it refreshing for us, since we had been there before. The food is of the highest quality; the warmth and friendliness of the staff is just amazing; the entertainment is just super. They have a motto by which they survive, "Give the guests what they expect and give more that they expect." Believe me they live that motto each day and in everything they do.

The wonderful time we had was enriched by such people as Ava Gardner in Concierge, Clinton who services the in room bar, Andre who works at the main pool, Keon and Shanice who works at the swim up bar at the main pool, Mickel who serves in the Elenora restaurant and many others. We cannot forget these folks- they are the best. Thank you for your incredible service.

We look forward to being "SANDALIZED" again at this top class, world resort. Don't worry about the roads, its makes for the fun.
Eustace and Marcia.

Room Tip: We have always stayed in the Dutch Village and the view is great!!!

We traveled to Sandals Whitehouse from Aug 10-16 for our honeymoon. It was our second all-inclusive experience (previously stayed at Dreams in Cancun) and we LOVED Sandals Whitehouse SO much more. We loved the secluded location and we really didn't mind the drive from the airport. The drive was a great opportunity to see more of beautiful Jamaica!!
We stayed in the Dutch Village (our room was nice and we loved having a very private balcony nook), and spent most of our time at the Riviera Pool and Dutch Beach. Dutch Pool was very quite and relaxing, but we enjoyed the fun atmosphere of the Riviera Pool. We also enjoyed doing the glass boat ride, paddleboarding, and using the hobie cats.
The food was great. We loved breakfast and dinner at Eleanors, as well as dinner at Bluefields. We HIGHLY recommend the french toast at Eleanors--best we have ever had! Excellent service at the restaurants, especially from Nehru and Synovia at Giuseppe's, Tonyan at Neptune's, and Fiona at Eleanor's!!!
My only complaint about the trip was the abundance of photographers who were always wanting to take photos. I suppose it would be nice if we were traveling for an anniversary trip, but after a day full of pictures at our wedding, we were tired of consistent pushes from the photographers.
HIGHLY recommend Whitehouse, and we plan to return in the future!!!
