Reviewed 14 June 2014

We chose White Sands in hope to have a more authentic experience in Jamaica unlike the all inclusive hotels and we chose right! We had a group of 23 of us for our wedding and vacation. Some of us were in the villa which is amazing and perfect for a bigger group and kids because of the kitchen and pool. Other guests were in the apartment which is also very roomy and other guests in other rooms. You tell them your name 1 time and they remember it. Bring your own beach towels, Hand towels and blow dryers etc. If you do your research there are so many good food places all around the area or take a taxi. We will be returning to White Sands. Hopefully sooner than later!

Room Tip: Even though the villa is across the street it's worth it. Just look both ways and cross. Not tha...

White Sands was a great stay for the price. The rooms are nice but nothing fancy. For the amount of time I spend in my room during my vacation, they had everything I needed. The place is clean and the staff are very helpful. We didn't stay on the beach side but it didn't really matter anyway. They have great daily drink deals at the bar and the beach front is great. I will return to Whites Sands!

Rooms are a little shabby and toilets smell a bit but for the price it's excellent value for money and the above can be overlooked.
Loved the beach and location of the hotel. The manager was very polite and gave us tips when we arrived.
Randy the Lifeguard was a lovely guy to chat to.
Try eating at the road side places like Colettas and miss Sonia's... Fantastic too and great value.
Would definately stay again so don't let the negative things put you off ;)

Agreed....we are blessed with being in a Great Location on the 7 Mile Beach.

Rooms are a little shabby??? That is not good to read. Please next time if there is anything we can do to make your stay better let us know. It is not a matter of price, it is basic hospitality. Please always let a hotel know if you are not happy with something about the stay.

Overall I am glad you had a nice time, we will take better care of you when you come back.

Cheers,

Thank you White Sands for a wonderful vacation. I do not need to write a long review since everybody who already wrote one said everything that I wanted to say about this hotel. Great service, great price and perfect location! We cannot wait to go back!

Room Tip: We had a garden side room. It is much more spacious than a beach side room. Quieter also since it is...

My husband and I were only here for two nights and wished we didn't have to leave. If we didn't have reservations in Montego Bay we would have stayed our whole week at White Sands. We stayed in a "cottage" room and although we thought it was a little big for just the two of us, we enjoyed the extra space and we actually saw what the one bedroom looked like and were very happy we got the cottage. The cottage had 4 beds! 3 of them were twin size and one was a queen. we also had a fully equipped kitchen so its great if youre staying a while and want to cook your own food or for families with kids to store snacks/left overs etc. The bathroom was great, clean, big enough and our cottage was closest to the beach.

The food at the restaurant was very good as well as the "drink of the day." they do give the option of signing all the food and drinks to the room so you don't have to carry money on you at all times. also the pool area was great with the pool tables and ping pong tables too. very family friendly as well as great for couples looking to get away and relax. we met some incredible people while we were there that gives such a warm, welcoming, "home away from home" feeling. we cannot wait to come back.

Ms Valerie was great at the front desk. she answered all questions, set up taxi pick ups, and gave great tips on where to eat. "Blacka" was also helpful to show us around the property and gave us good tips for the best curry goat.

we cannot wait to go back! THANK YOU WHITE SANDS!!!

Thank you again White Sands for another amazing stay! This was our second trip to White Sands and I cannot wait to return next Mother’s day (if not sooner). Everyone there goes out of his or her way to make sure your feel at home. I just can’t say enough wonderful things about every single staff member there. White Sands is a fantastic place to stay from the cozy rooms, to the breath-taking beach. Love you all and counting the days until we return! Thank you!!! Tammy, Patricia, & Sandy

Can't think of a better way to spend Mother's Day. Thanks for choosing us on this special occasion and looks like it will be an annual event !! Wonderful....

So nice to read all the staff took care of you. As long as guests are open to meeting the family and the staff, they will get the real feel of Jamaica.

Hurry back for more Happy Hours on the beach with friends and family.

Travelling alone I had three days to spare before heading to Montego bay for a big wedding so upon reviews I chose white sands as my prestay hotel....I was not disappointed. This little hotel is a social mecca and I can see why people return over and over again.....its biggest draw is the wonderful people you are about to meet from all destinations. The rooms are more than adequate and I have to tell you I really only visited it to sleep ..... This intimate little hotel has a pool and It sits on one of the nicest beaches in Jamaica.... it is only a few dollars by taxi into town from here and if you do need a taxi... I would recommend Tonys Taxi service his prices were amongest the fairest and you can reach him at 18762870066 or email him tony19stewart@gmail.com

Room Tip: i liked the beach so i booked beachside ...easy
