Sandy Haven Resort
Ranked #18 of 80 Hotels in Negril
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 August 2014

The Property is always well kept , especially the beach which is also never crowded. Sandy Haven's slice of beach compared to others is truly the best. They make sure its exclusive to Sandy Haven guests which is very refreshing when you have horses and dogs crapping on the other hotels part of the beach.

The hotel also feels very secure, you can get a good nights sleep with no worries, Which is something to say in a country like Jamaica.

Aside from this though, my favorite part of the stay was the staff of the hotel. They really are more than just people who come everyday to get paid, but more like people who genuinely care about your comfort at the hotel. It's like the staff is one big family who has invited you to their home. Even now some their names will stay with me until i go back like, Pops, Andre, Edmond and others.

The food at the Restaurant on Property, Bongos, is just great. I cant wait to go back and have more of that Delicious Jerk Chicken Pasta! There are other great things on the menu which i tried but that particular meal was my favorite.

I recommend this Hotel to anyone staying in Jamaica as it is a great and comforting experience.

P.S Ask for Andre at the bar He'll Mix you whatever you need to make your stay even better, i Guarantee it

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet and well maintained, i'd say go for the beachfront rooms for the great view

The staff were incredibly friendly, helpful and polite, and receptive to your needs. The hotel is well-kept, scenic and clean. The food was delicious, with a great menu and the beach area is definitely one of the best in Negril. The bar is amazing, with a great selection and a wonderful set of bartenders. Sandy Haven is on the perfect spot along the Negril beach, where you can easily get to both secluded and popular areas of the strip, so i'd say this resort is perfect for any kind of stay in Negril. I am definitely coming back as soon as i can, and definitely recommend this resort to others looking for the Negril Jamaica experience. Great management, and a wonderful time.

Room Tip: I've stayed in two rooms in different locations, both were great and quiet too!

The property was very well maintained and the entire staff was friendly and helpful. It was great to enjoy tasty drinks at the beachside bar before taking just a few short steps into the amazing beach. Private chairs and beach area but with access to walk up and down to anywhere else down the beach. The beach was irresistible, but next time I'll definitely make time to enjoy the pool as well!

After much research for our vacation destination, we chose Negril, we then selected Sandy Haven for our resort after reading all the reviews. We were not disappointed. We could not have made a better choice. The resort was amazing. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Rooms were perfect with small refrigerator and porch. We enjoyed having our morning coffee and watching the beach before starting our day. Linton, Andre and Meryl were great. I would definitely recommend this resort and hope to return for another stay soon!!

Room Tip: Since resort is beach front, no need to pay extra for ocean view or ocean front. All rooms have a b...

Sandy Haven is sandy heaven. Stayed for five nights and did not leave the property once. No reason to with the awesome restaurant Bongos on property. Rooms are large, clean and tastefully decorated. The beach is lovely and comfortable. Be sure to ask pops which boat to take to go snorkeling on the nearby shallow coral reef where the visibility is remarkable. Try the Jamaican breakfast, the oxtail and the curry goat...fabulous! Can't wait to return!
