The hotel is really OK. It seems to be among family people. Everybody there made my stay in Jamaica be really wonderful. If I come back to Jamaica, I'll stay at White Sands.

We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at White sands. Especially as we were becoming leary of the place after some of the reviews we had read. We checked in and were shown to our room. Henry was waiting to help with our luggage. Our room was pleasant and clean. Just the necessities, which was fine as we didn't plan to spend all of our time in the room anyways.The staff was kind and helpful and would accomodate within their means. Security was never an issue as we had read in other reviews. We felt comfortable no matter what time we came in. To not mention the bar would be a sin! Tony and Paul are the Best! Tiny and Sonya will see to your breakfast and lunches and do a very nice job.
Mrs. Williams is an asset and we look forward to seeing them again next year! Thank you White Sands for making our vacation most enjoyable!

My husband & I have been married 26 yrs.This was our first real vacation.We were a little nervous about how we would get along,but the staff at The White Sands took care of all that.We were treated with nothing but respect.Any needs we came across & weren't sure about,we just talked with staff & all was taken care of.The room was also very,very nice.We stayed on beach side & loved the convenience.We could find anything we needed right on beach.This was what made our vacation so very special,we didn't even see cars & traffic.We never have been so relaxed as the time we spent on the beach.We even seen a perfect sunset,it made a bright green flash just as the sun went under.We very highly recomend this resort & all the wonderful staff.Also we would like to thank again everyone at White Sands for making this a great vacation.So Thank you,Francis,Henry,Peaches,Nora,Patrick,Leon,Paul,& anyone else we forgot to mention,you all made us feel very welcome.Thanks again,Joy & Jack Danielson

I first went to the White Sands 17 years ago and have returned almost every year since. I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else and I've taken friends and family there. Many, if not most, of the guests at the White Sands are repeats - we come year after year - and for many good reasons. This is a family run hotel in the truest sense and it shows in the personal attention you receive. The gardens are beautiful, the rooms comfortable and ample, the prices are more than reasonable and the staff and the owners are truly wonderful people who care about the guests. The White Sands also commands a perfect, central location on the beach. Give it a try once and then plan on coming again next year, and the year after and.....

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!
