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... More

The greatest experience!! Got to experience Jamaica with the amazing homemade authentic food and seeing local places. Was wonderful, relaxing, and the most perfect honeymoon. Would highly recommend will never get an experience like this at a resort with thousands of people. They cater to you and give you the most personalized adventure you will never forget!

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... More

I totally forgot to review this place after we returned from our trip to Jamaica in May/June.
