Sandals Whitehouse?

Recommended Posts

I went there on vacation when it first opened and ABSOLUTELY LOVED it! The resort is beautiful, the staff was friendly, the drinks and food were great too. The sand is perfect and the ocean is warm and crystal clear.

 

One of the things that I liked best was how secluded it is... when we went there were no other resorts around them at all. (if you are looking for nightlife this might not be the place)

 

I have pictures from my vacation and will try to post them tonight or tomorrow (if I can figure out how) Any other questions-just let me know!

Oh, thank you! Pictures would be great! I am really excited for this resort, although the nightlife does worry me a little. My FI wants there to be nightlife, and I could go either way, but I think we'll be okay!

Don't worry about it..... the first night we were there I was worried we wouldn't have enough to do but never actually felt like it was missing. They do have shows and might have a disco. I am leaving work now but will get back to you!

My sister went there for her honeymoon. She loved it. Only problem was some bugs on the beach. I guess you had to wear bug repellant otherwise you'd wake up the next morning with red spots all over your body.

HI!
I just returned from my honeymoon at Sandals Whitehouse this weekend. I can tell you after a fun, action-packed time at RIU Ocho Rios the week before, the Sandals Whitehouse was somewhat of a let down. If you and your FI are into dancing and having fun at night...this is definitely NOT the place to stay! However, if you are looking for a relaxed, laid back honeymoon, it is perfect. The grounds are absolutely beautiful, and the food was really great. There were very few younger (20-30s) couples (it seemed mostly couples in their 50-60s) therefore, the youger crowd all kind of migrated towards one another. We basically made our own fun at night by karaoking, watching the shows, etc. The "nightclub" was always empty. We mostly hung out at the pool by the French village, as there was a swimup bar and pool volleyball every day.
Let me know if you have any further questions! By the way...make sure you go with the concierge package in order to get into all the restaurants. We felt sorry for the couples without the concierge that had to wait an hour+ for a reservation.

Do you know if it's easy enough to switch locations-to another Sandals-once you are there? The more I think about it, my FI might not like this very much and that wouldn't be good for our HM!!!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
