I loved the homemade breakfasts every morning! They were great. The hospitality was great. Staff helped me fix and replace a tire on my rental. I was really stressed out about it but they were extremely helpful.

Home away from home and our slice of Paradise! Well worn phrases but aptly describe White Sands Negril. We have been coming here once, sometimes twice a year for over 10 years. Especially comforting is the friendly, family feel of this non chain resort, from grounds crew to owners. You cannot beat the central location on the 7 mile beach...

Fantastic feedback and advice to read for anyone who is considering White Sands for a future stay on the Negril beach. Thank you for giving praise to the crew that keeps the grounds looking fantastic, for pointing out our newly renovated rooms, and for mentioning the Smile For A Child school program. And yes.....the Reggae Marathon is a great event,...

I stayed at White Sands for ten days, a few on the ocean side and some in the garden side. Each has pros and cons, but personally I preferred the beach side. The garden side has easier access to the pool, but I'm a beach guy. Great beach bar and restaurant on site; note that the restaurant is only open...

Scott, Very kind of you to provide potential clients with your trip review. It is cool that you were able to stay on both the garden side and beach side. Each has their devoted following...not one is better, just two different sides to what I think is the best small hotel in Negril. Yep....I am biased, and proudly so. Thanks...

I grew up coming to White Sands every other year with my family since I was a child. My uncle was close with Mr. Moo Young, and lives in Kingston so after visiting with him for a few days, we'd all come to finish off our vacation at White Sands. From the views, the food, to the hospitality by the...

Thank you for your very kind review. Wonderful to read that our staff treated you well.

I have stayed on 7 Mile Beach several times, but this was my first time staying at White Sands, which was recommended by a friend.

Thank you for your detailed review. It is always refreshing to read a travel review that states they do not come on vacation to watch TV. For me, that is a no brainer. Who in the heck wants to watch the news while they are on a beach vacation. Read a book, bring a tablet and chill. And the bar...
