Sandals Whitehouse Beach Party

Why did we pick the Sandals Whitehouse Jamaica resort? For our 20th Anniversary, my husband and I decided that we wanted to celebrate by going some place with “blue water”. That was about the only instruction we gave Mike of Southern Travel Agency in Augusta, GA.

I had been searching on the internet for all inclusive resorts in the Caribbean or Mexico, but there was so much information to weed through.

I found a forum on resorts in Mexico that mentioned nude sunbathing, which I did NOT want.

So I asked Mike to steer us clear of those places. I told him I wanted to sit on the beach and relax. I have a stressful job so I wanted a relaxing vacation.

Letting a travel agent arrange all the details of our vacation was by far the best decision I made. Mike suggested Sandals Whitehouse, now South Coast because all of the rooms have an ocean view and the all inclusive resort is in a more remote part of Jamaica, compared to Sandals Negril.

It is in fact within a 500-acre wilderness preserve with blue mountains, lush palm groves, pristine coastlines and shimmering turquoise waters. It sounded absolutely perfect for us!

We decided to fly out of Atlanta to save a few dollars.

Our Travel Tip #1 for Sandals Whitehouse Jamaica: Park and Fly

Mike suggested that we do a “Park and Fly” at the Country Inn & Suites near the Atlanta airport.

This allowed us to spend the night in Atlanta and park our car at the hotel while we were in Jamaica. The rate was $97 for the hotel and parking. The hotel also provided a shuttle to the Atlanta airport and dropped us off at Delta’s Curbside Check In, where there was no waiting.

This saved us from a long line inside the airport to check our bags.

Arriving at Sandals Whitehouse in Jamaica

We arrived in Jamaica after about a 2.5 hour flight.

After we left immigration, we were greeted by the Sandals Whitehouse staff who tagged our luggage and invited us to come sit and have a drink while we waited for the Sandals shuttle to take us to the resort.

Sandals Whitehouse is an all inclusive adults only luxury resort, about an hour and a half drive from the Montego Bay airport. Jamaicans are known for their haphazard style of driving, so it was quite an adventure, but the trip allowed us to see the countryside and the rainbow-colored homes of the Jamaicans.

Sandals Whitehouse Jamaica Lobby

Sandals Whitehouse Jamaica Lobby

When we arrived at Sandals Whitehouse in Jamaica, we were greeted with Champagne and Rum Punch as well as citrus-scented towels to refresh our hands and faces.

We were escorted into the European-style lobby while our concierge checked us in. The concierge took us to our ocean-front room overlooking one of the four pools at the resort. The luxury resort room had a beautiful view of the ocean, a king-sized rice bed, and a well-stocked refrigerator.

 

Our Travel Tip #2 for Sandals Whitehouse Jamaica: Bathing Suites in Carry On Bag

Pack your bathing suits in your carry on bag and make sure to take it with you when you first meet your concierge in the lobby.

Once you’re in your room, you won’t have to wait for your luggage to be delivered before you can enjoy the beach or the pools.

Sandals Whitehouse Jamaica Ocean View from Our Room

We took a tour of the beach and the four swimming pools, two of which had swim-up bars, as well as scouted out the seven restaurants.

Our First Evening at Sandals Whitehouse

We chose Neptune’s for our first evening because it offers outside seating with a gorgeous view of the ocean. The red snapper that I chose was delicious and my husband’s steak was cooked to perfection.

The gardens of the resort were beautifully lit at night which offered us a wonderful stroll back to the room. It had been a long day of traveling and we were tired so we skipped the entertainment at Sandals Whitehouse on the first evening and went to bed.

Client Travel Story: Sandals Barbados - Destination Weddings and Honeymoons

Once I found out Barbados wasn’t going to work, Mike Kerbelis and his team went over the top to help me. I spent a whole Saturday with him.

I told him I liked new, and he thought Grenada would be perfect, since his sister just spent her honeymoon there and loved it. They worked all the travel out for our guests too.”

Client Travel Story: European River Cruises

When I wanted to book this package I sent her an email of what I wanted, and started with the “oh by the ways …” — she gladly took care of all of my special requests.

“I’ve used Southern Travel Agency for a long time, and I’ve never had a bad vacation. They’re very efficient and good with complicated logistics.

Client Travel Story: Problem Solving  

“I know a lot of people book their travel online, but the biggest disadvantage of doing that is you have no one to turn to if you ever have a problem. I’ve been using Southern Travel Agency for years, and I appreciate having somebody I can call who can get a problem taken care of — which saves us from ruining the whole trip!”

Coming back from Europe, we got in at 9 at night, so Jane booked us a hotel — and the hotel provided 14 days free parking, which meant we got to leave our car there the whole trip. It was excellent. We’ve used Southern Travel before, and we find the team there very personable, and they go out of their way to help you.”

Client Travel Story: Custom Tailor Made Vacations  

“My summer travel plans had gotten too complicated for me to handle myself. I walked in to Southern Travel Agency, talked with Mike Kerbelis, and soon had everything worked out. I will go back here the next vacation I need to plan. Everyone in the office was friendly and helpful. I am very pleased with my experience.”

Client Travel Story: Family Vacations  

“We have been using Southern Travel for years and they’ve booked numerous trips for us (including all three of my children’s honeymoons). Mike and the staff are great. They have lots of experience, so they can help you plan a fabulous trip while getting the most for your dollar. And when the airlines change flights or the unexpected comes up, they are just a phone call away and take care of everything. I highly recommend Southern Travel.”

She also suggested a company where we were able to rent a motorized scooter. I was surprised to learn that they would put the scooter in our cabin in Los Angeles and we could leave it in the cabin when we reached Ft. Lauderdale. Jane was also very knowledgeable and helpful when we were planning our side trip excursions. We will surely use Southern Travel Agency and Jane to arrange our next cruise.”
