This was my second time staying at White Sands, great place reasonably priced right on the beach, internet was a bit slower this time but I would not hold that against them, it might have been the internet provider. Francis and staff was just great as always, I will definitely make this my first choice next time again, hopefully real...

Glad to have you back and looking forward to hosting you the next time you are in Negril. We were having some intermittent WiFi problems over the past 7 days due to router issues. Our solution is to upgrade with new routers that are specifically built for the outdoor salt water environment. Thanks again and see you soon. Cheers, White...

WOW! You get the award for the strongest fingers and hands for writing such a long and detaiiled review. With hands that strong maybe you should apply for the job of giving massages on the beach!

Our stay at White Sands was wonderful! We will definitely be coming back next time we are in Negril and will recommend it to anyone who is going. The rooms were kept very clean, the staff was extremely friendly, and the location was perfect. My only complaint would be that we didn't get to stay long enough!

What a wonderful review, thank you. And you are so right...who needs an all-inclusive in a town like Negril where there are so many great restaurants and bars to discover.
