Reviewed 12 April 2014 via mobile

The hotel was simple but spacious as our rooms had high wooden ceilings, a queen bed, twin bed, a balcony with French doors and a big bathroom. The room also came with a small refrigerator and remote control air conditioner.

The staff was very nice and accommodating. The concierge KerryAnn upgraded our room and that of our friends so we could be next to the beach and each other free of charge. She also arranged a cab ride to MoBay at a fair price and extended out check out for an hour more. She was very sweet. I would return just because of her great service.

Although I've read that the beach side was noisy because of the bar and restaurant, I slept like a baby and didn't experience any noise.

The only recommendation I would have for the hotel is to include a breakfast option.

White Sands would of not been such a great experience if it wasn't for Kerryann the concierge at the hotel. She upgraded my room and that of our friends so we could be next to each other as well as next to the beach. She also extended our check out for another hour free of charge. She arranged our transportation to Montego Bay for a reasonable price. Kerryann was amazing. Thank you girl.

The room was clean and spacious with high ceilings, comfortable beds and great wi-fi signal and air conditioning. The bathroom was spacious and had consistent hot water. The balcony had French doors that opened up fully which extended the size of the room. Great to chill with friends. The beach was only a few steps away from the room and absolutely beautiful. Negril's beach is awesome. Next time will stay longer.

The only recommendation I would have would be to include a breakfast option that comes with the room. Also to watch out for the hustlers trying to sell you forcefully anything under the moon. Thank and walk away graciously.

This was the third time staying at White Sands Negril for my wife & I.....no complaints, so we will definitely be back. WS is a basic, family run hotel with all staff treating all guests like extended family. We stayed on the garden side and our room was always kept clean with great AC. The location on the beach is second to none, great swimming and an easy walk to anything on the 7-mile beach. The bar is a great place to hang out as Tony & the gang serve a different "2-for1" special each day of the week. Thanks again to Francis and the entire staff at WS!

Had a great time last week of January 2014. Good food nearby. Small rooms on beach side, larger across road. Good AC. Nice staff. Highly recommend if you like a la cart Jamiaca. Beautiful Beach. Water pressure is weak.

This is our fifth time to Jamaica and we thought we would try White Sands because it had good reviews and cheap prices. Truly you get what you pay for. Positives : cheap, good wi-fi, clean. Disappointments: dated accommodations, toilet made noises and faucet dripped all night, tiny pool, uncomfortable chairs by beach and very little shade area unless you like sitting in rows behind others and not getting a good view of the ocean, no beach towels available to guests, no ice buckets, no tv, and no safe in the room. The safes in the office were not big enough to hold electronics and you could only access it 8 am- 8 pm. We love staying in places that are not all inclusive,as we love to dine out at all the wonderful beachside restaurants, but White Sands was a little too sparse in amenities for even our liking. I recommend the Coco La Palm if you want a nice place for a fair price.

Ok - the drinks at the bar are strong & well priced, hotel's location & beach are great, & restaurant had GREAT tasting Jamaican food...if they didnt run out of menu items, i would stay positive but the service is slow (even for Jamaica) and sometimes rude, although Henry and the security crew are top notch and make u feel safe and comfortable. I am disappointed to write that we probably should have stayed elsewhere because of the basic basic basic lackluster of the room that we overpayed for...we had a "deluxe" room on the "oceanside" and am curious as to why the room was labeled deluxe (just a dark room and 2 old beds, old bedspreads, old nightstands, and rusty fridge) or oceanside (it is next to the road). When we asked for clean towels, the housekeeper inspected our dirties and chastised my husband on the cleanliness of our dirty towels - Nevermind that we voluntarily cleaned our own room every day and only asked for towels after the third day. Luckily we had brought our own towels for the beach as we read and realized they don't provide pool or beach towels - Coffee or tea? - u must buy it at the restaurant and deal with rude, slow service when u first awake. Paper thin walls - I heard TMI from all sides - every conversation, bowel movement, flush, and coital groan. Too bad there was no tv or radio to drown it out. Stay here only if you get the bottom dollar price that most payed (unfortunately not us - i learned we got ripped a new one after I talked with others) and can tolerate all the negatives described.

Sorry you feel you overpaid for your room. The vast majority of reviews are quite positive about White Sands Negril being great value for the money.

Negril has many different resorts, I hope on your next visit you find one that is a good fit for you.

Cheers,
White Sands Negril
