Loved White Sands
I have been a constant visitor to Negril for over 30 years and have despaired at the growth of the all inclusive which has put so much space between visitors and the real beauty of Jamaica which, is the people. White Sands is one of the few remaining Hotels in Negril that has always been family run and feels like it. It is the best antidote to those "all inclusives" mega resorts that are more like factories than places to rest, relax and trully enjoy the Jamaican experience. At White Sands you feel like a member of the family and are treated like one and i cannot recomend it highly enough whether you are a young single visitor,a family or, an old Jamaica hand like me. It really is a home from home and as such, an increasingly hard to find oais in this over worked community.
I will keep staying at White Sands!!
I've stayed at 4 beach properties and 1 cliff property in Negril. White Sands is now the one I always return to.
The staff is more friendly & helpful than those at any of the hotels I stayed at, the rooms cleaner, the rates, by far the best. If you want a/c, good screens that actually keep the mosquitoes out, great beach location, wonderful staff, comfortable beds, good restaurant/bar, plus the addition of swimming pool, pool table & ping pong table, by all means stay here.
You will have a great time and will be treated well.
When we decided to go Jamaica, I made really a deep research, because where you stay is really important. White sands was my first choice, and will be like that in the future. Small, family owned, clean and a cozy place. Garden side houses are really in the "tropical" garden.
Housekeeping, gardeners and the other staff are very friendly and helpful. If you want a perfect vacation in Negril, White Sands is definetly right place to stay.
Our home away from home
For the past four years, we've vacationed every year for a week in Negril, the first two of which we stayed at a different place each year. Two years ago we discovered a beautiful, quiet oasis along a wide stretch of 7 mile beach that seemed to sway calmly like the palm trees, and we returned there again this year - White Sands.To us, White Sands is like home away from home. We are always welcomed with open arms, free to roam the grounds like we're the only ones there and the surroundings are all we need in Negril. The rooms are simple and clean, which is all we need, and the staff are phenomenal. We LOVE them all and because of that, we just can't drag ourselves away to investigate other hotels. We just know it wouldn't be the same. This year we took our daughters, 6 & 3, with us for their first trip and would not have done that anywhere but White Sands. They were immediately embraced by everyone there, they made fast friends with the housekeepers, bartenders and front desk staff, and basically they took over the place. So much better than built in programs at all-inclusives. . .they made their own fun: bellying up to the bar for fruit punches, hunting lizards with the housekeeper and meeting lots of other kids staying there. It is our home away from home, our definition of paradise with and without our kids there. Highly recommend it!
Too Good for Words
I did my research for over two months when I decided on White Sands. It was everything the web site said it would be. In fact, I would say they undersell themselves on their web site. I felt like I was one of the family when I was there. It is a vibe I have never felt anywhere else. If they sold time-share units I would have bought one on the spot. The Moo-Young family owns and runs the hotel and they are great. Whenever I needed to find out what to do, where to go, where to eat, etc...I just asked Francis, the Manager, or anyone in the front office. They gave me good 'local' advice and I can't thank them enough. The most amazing thing is the price. I looked at almost every small hotel in Negril before I reserved a room and there is no question that White Sands offers the best price. They are much cheaper than the other beach hotels. I walked the beach to check out the other hotels I considered and after doing even more research I am absolutely sure I found the best hotel for the best price. If you want upscale fancy don't stay at White Sands. If you want a great vibe, family run resort where you feel at home, I highly recommend White Sands. Enjoy, Patrick
White Sands Resort-Negril
Had a great time, very friendly staff and mid beach location. The two for daily drink specials at the bar are a good way to sample different tropical beverages. Family run resort. The White Sands have reasonable rates both on and off season. Close to all activites in the Negril area.
The White Sands was our piece of Paradise!
We recently enjoyed a week at the White Sands with our teenage children. What a wonderful experience. The property was beautiful, with a staff that was friendly and always available to answer questions and make us feel at home. The rooms were spacious and very clean. The beach is indeed paradise, white sand, clear water and beautiful weather.
My Slice of Heaven- The White Sands
The warm, friendly staff of the White Sands will melt your heart and take care of your every need with a hearty no problem, mon! With spacious, immaculate rooms, complete with a refrigerator, air conditioning, comfortable beds and feather pillows, the White Sands is for travelers who long for the simple, tranquil comforts.I spent my honeymoon in Negril over 20 years ago and have been going back to my little slice of heaven with my husband and son ever since. I know take groups of women (www.tripsforwomen.com) to the White Sands to rejuvenate their spirit.
Wonderful bargain, beautiful beach
For standard rate we had extraordinary lodging: living room, dining room, kitchen, bedroom for what others were charging for a single room. We were right on the beach (seven miles of white sand), the water was warm and gentle, the vendors only approached when invited to do so, and lots of police around not bothering anyone but making everyone feel safe. We were within walking distance of anything we wanted, and Francis Williams, manager of White Sands, was very helpful with arranging excursions and for talking with us about Jamaican customs and history. I guarantee, you'll be delighted!!!
If you don't care about crud...
Filthy disgusting place
the beach of course, was wonderful
These accomodations are horrific and watch out for the "security" guards here they are more corrupt than the natives outside the resort......
TWO THUMBS DOWN
This place is a dump!!

Today we decided to leave the comfort of our beautiful beach and venture out into the real Jamaica. Our trip took us to the Southerly side of the Island through some very rural terrain. Jamaica is a lot more mountainous than we had realised and also very heavily wooded. The day started. Quite wet and windy and water was running down the road. Our first stop was at the YS Falls where we were able to walk to ...
Tuesday, 10th February
In order to try and get some favourable winds, we headed off pre sunrise under motor. The wind was most uncooperative, being pretty much a head wind all day. We motored along firstly with almost no wind and fairly flat seas with storm clouds brewing. We got some rain, some strong winds in the wrong direction and some rough seas. We ...
Sunday started well and we took a pedal boat out to see if we could see any fish ! The sea is very clear and we did see some big starfish but otherwise no fish! As usual Rob then went out on the Cat. But whilst he was out at sea the weather hanged and a storm was brewing! Amazingly he was sensible enough to come back to land before it rained! The rest of the day ...
... slower and stop! I think we've got to between the last 2!!! We now have our own personal waiter who totally looks after us and grovells to our every need for the hope of a dollar here and there! His name is Super Mario!!! Tonight we tried out the Italian restaurant which was excellent and we'll go there again, there are 4 speciality restaurants here. It was Reggae night so singing and dancing to a live group and yet more Bob Marley!! Yeh Man!!! Hope everyone ok ...
We awoke to beautiful blue skies and avery hot start but as the day went on the wind got up and turned out to be a perfect day for sailing!! Apparently we are only 90 minutes from Cuba an dI did wonder if Rob was going to make an appearance on their shores as he became a dot on the horizon!! He did admit going out was easier than turning round!! However he arrived back safely and all was well! Today was ...
