Home > Sandals Whitehouse
Ambiance - Wow, that is the best word to describe this resort. I am not normally a big fan of Sandals but I have to say they have outdone themselves. How they were able to get the European charm with the Jamaican feel should be applauded.
Beach - Rivals any beach in the Caribbean. The picture to the right tells a thousand words.
Charges (extra) - Spa treatments, hairdresser and motorized water sports would be extra.
Distances -Located on the Southwest Coast, away from the hustle and bustle of the normal areas where most people stay.
Entertainment on Property -There are theme nights, a disco, beach parties and a steel band plays every night.
Fitness Area - A state of the art fitness center with treadmills, stair climbers, free weights among other things to torture yourself with. Your on vacation! Lets' not forget the world class Spa.
Food - The are 11, yes count them 11 restaurants, of which 7 are a la carte, serving Italian, French, Bahamian, Latin, West Indian, International, Asian and local cuisines. A word of warning for the guys. Bring at least one pair of long trousers to wear at dinner if you want to get into the ala-carte restaurants. I guess the women can wear whatever they want. Not complaining mind you.
Getting Around - Taxi or renting a car. Sandals also offers day tours from the resort.
Internet Access -There is an hourly charge for internet access.
Jackets and Ties - Keep them at home, but bring slacks and polo shirt for dinner in the A la Carte restaurants.
Kids -Leave them at home, no kids allowed.
Lighting -The resort is well laid out and well lit at night.
Medical Services -There is a resident nurse on the property during the day.
Negatives - About the only negative is the drive from the airport, a little under two hours. But worth the drive!
Nightlife - Plenty of nightlife on the property or you can relax, watch the sunset and have a romantic dinner.
Opportunities -This is the newest of the Sandals Resorts and I am glad to see they have a property that rivals it's competitors now.
Pool - I love infinity pools and this resort has one of the best I have seen. One of the best pools in Jamaica.
Protection - In room safe at no additional charge .
Recreation - Where do I begin, hobie Cats, snorkeling, volley ball, windsurfing, sailing and water skiing just to name a few.
Rooms -Finally Sandals has built a resort where the rooms are spacious. This is one Sandals I feel confident in sending my clients.
Shopping - Small gift shop on property.
Terrain - Very flat and spread out. Very easy to get around.
Tipping-Not required but as with any service industry, if your bartender, room service attendant or concierge really shines, they will appreciate the small gratuity since most people will not be tipping anyway. They will treat you royally.
Updates-Sandals has teamed up with Red lane Spas making the Spa experience here a wonderful one.
View-One of the few resorts that all of the rooms have a view of the beach and pool.
Weather-December through May are the driest months. September through November are the wettest months
WOW Factor-The three distinct European Villages (French, Italian and Dutch) make this one of the most unique resorts in Jamaica
X-Y-Z-Sandals lives up to the Ultra Inclusive hype with this resort.

"Just the Facts"
On the untouched South Coast of Jamaica, Sandals Whitehouse European Village & Spa is a 50-acre seaside fantasy within a 500-acre reserve. In an impressive European village, you can stroll an expansive Italian piazza reminiscent of St. Mark's square in Venice.. and be surrounded by the sophistication of France, the passion of Italy, and the charm of Holland with restaurants, duty free shops, and magnificent formal gardens bordering an endless stretch of pristine beach.
Gaze out at the rippling, aquamarine turquoise waters of the Caribbean from your own gorgeous room or suite. Savor the best sleep of your life in gleaming mahogany four-poster beds, testaments to the colonial luxury that makes up the heritage of this exotic land. Walk through gardens bursting with vivid shades of purple, pink and orange. Bask in the supreme comfort of service born of a more genteel time-an ever-attentive presence, warmer than the tropical sun.
The outlook is always inspiring at this resort, because all of its 360 rooms and suites boast breathtaking views of the resort's two-mile span of beach. There are 80 sumptuous suites to choose from, many with the unrivaled luxury of true Butler Service in the style of English nobility. Remain in a world of your own choosing, in settings that recreate your favorite corners of Europe.. and hide away in your own private fantasy just steps from the aquamarine sea.
