When I first talked to you about coming to Jamaica for our honeymoon I wasn't sure what to expect. But for some reason it felt rite like this is what my wife I needed in our lives. Honestly she was a little skeptical because it was something different. You go on vacations to these all inclusive places and you most...

This was my third visit to Sandysbythesea bringing my 18 year old daughter~not her first visit to Jamaica but a first to Sandys. She was NOT disappointed! It was exactly what we wanted and needed! We were met by our driver, Sandra, a kind, diligent, safe driver at the airport. We enjoyed our ride to our destination in LittleBay. It's...

It was our first time going to Jamaica. After going back and forth between staying in an all inclusive or something a bit off the grid, we opted for off the grid! I had read the reviews about Sandy's by the Sea and all came with VERY high marks! We were looking for something quiet and peaceful away from the...

Sandy's by the Sea is stunning. Sandy and Dilo have a few rooms set in a beautiful tropical garden overlooking the beach. They cooked delicious Jamaican breakfast and dinner for us each day and we spent a lot of time just chilling in their garden watching the pelicans catch fish in the bay. Dilo is a fisherman and bushman, he...

As I monitor Hurricane Matthew, and it's threat to Jamaica, I am reminded of a life-changing vacation to Sandy's By The Sea (in April 2013 - I wasn't able to select that date in the drop down menu). What can I say... There are simply no words in the English language to describe how truly amazing, and unlike any other...

I researched this place heavily before booking my trip here with Miss Sandy and Mr. Dillo, as I was traveling by myself outside of the country for the first time. When Miss Sandy told me she had researched me too before my arrival, I knew she was legit...meaning she is about protecting her family and her business (much respect). So...
