Resort features Jamaica's largest zero-entry pool
Some accommodations are dated, according to previous visitors
Set amid a 500-acre wilderness preserve and along a 2-mile-stretch of sand, the all-inclusive Sandals South Coast provides guests with Sandals' signature activities, plus the natural beauty of Jamaica's southern coast. All accommodations feature patios or balconies that overlook a white sand beach and contain four-poster beds, minifridges and HD smart TVs. Some travelers caution that most guest rooms and suites appear worn, so if you're looking for updated digs, consider booking one of the overwater bungalows, which were added in 2017, or a room in the renovated Italian Village building. You may dine on traditional Jamaican dishes at Schooner's or Eleanors, enjoy an Italian-inspired meal at guest-favorite Giuseppe's or sit for a meal at seven other restaurants. The room rates covers all nine dining venues. But make sure you wait an hour after eating before jumping into one of three pools, one of which is the largest zero-entry pool in Jamaica. Or, lounge on the sprawling beach (which visitors say is clean and never feels crowded, even when the resort is at capacity). Whether you're relaxing by the pool or along the sandy shore, your stay will be free of little ones – all Sandals resorts have an adults-only policy, so leave the kids at home.

Critic Reviews


The only hotel in Whitehouse, the resort is spread over a two-mile stretch of beach, and features European architecture, a wide variety of activities and entertainment options, and all of the amenities guests familiar with the brand have come to expect. Spacious and inviting, the resort is surrounded by 500 acres of wilderness preserve, making it quiet and very private.



The first major resort on the South Coast, this property is one of the most upscale properties in the Sandals chain. The 50-acre resort consists of several 'villages' constructed with Italian, Dutch, and French architectural touches.

Travel + Leisure


The resort is divided into three 'villages' with French, Dutch, and Italian styles, each with their own pool. ... The 360 rooms and suites include bright striped and floral fabrics, mahogany furniture, and tiled floors.

Condé Nast Traveler


All rooms at this Sandals Resort are in stone buildings on a two-mile-long beach in a 500-acre wilderness preserve on the island's south coast. The resort is arranged as three European villages – Dutch, French, and Italian (including a Venetian piazza) – and the architecture includes lots of marble columns and vaulted ceilings.



This beautiful resort is set on 50 acres of lush grounds along the remote south coast, where the mountains meet the sea. All the upscale rooms have mahogany furniture and boast a beachfront view.
