The location is wonderful, the employees are fabulous, we have been returning for years and just find this a perfect "home away from home" with much better weather! The clean beach, access to so many great restaurants & activities, can't say enough about how White Sands is our favorite!

This was our 7th visit to White Sands. Love the small intimate family feel of this hotel. We are welcomed back with hugs every year by the staff. They all make sure you have everything you need to have a great stay. The newly renovated rooms are beautiful! We will be back!

Our first visit to White Sands will not be our last. Our deluxe room had all we needed and Peaches kept it spotless for us! This resort is not all inclusive and does not have rooms full of luxurious fittings, but you don't pay for a room you are never in! We loved the cleanliness, the staff and our fellow...

After many years of staying on the west end of Negril ("the cliffs"), I decided to go back to the beach after several decades. After the first day, I wondered why I ever left the beach in the first place. The family that runs the property couldn't be nicer and most of the staff has been there for decades. They...

All of the staff at White Sands were very accommodating. Our room was cleaned daily (thanks Nora!) and the grounds were well maintained. Others complain that there is no television in the rooms.
