White Sands is simple. Not a lot of frills, but you get a relatively clean room on or near the beach. I didn't know this before I arrived, but no towels are provided for the beach chairs, so remember to bring your own or be prepared to haggle one of the nearby beach vendors. The owner, Francis is a nice...

I've been staying at White Sands since 1994. I'm not sure exactly the number of times I've stayed but it has to be at least 10 now. Once again, the hotel was everything I needed. I love the size of the overall hotel footprint...it's not too small nor is it a huge compound that takes forever to navigate. I stay...

Shari, Great to host you again and I have to agree that the Best in the West Jerk chicken is some of the finest on the planet. A great local spot to get a bite and only a 30 second walk from White Sands. There is always a Garden side vs Beach side battle and those who love the garden...

My husband and I wanted to have the "true Jamaican experience" this time around as we stayed in an all-inclusive last year. White Sands is amazingly affordable/inexpensive.
