Can't begin to say how great this place is. The staff are warm, friendly, and very accommodating. The location is fantastic, as long as your ok with a 30 second stroll to the beach. Walking down the beach can be a bit of a challenge with all the beach vendors wandering around, but they all seem to know they are...

I had an absolutely wonderful time at this resort. The people where amazing,friendly and very helpful. We had a great breakfast at the grill every morning and, being a public beach, there was wonderful fruit juices being sold right there!! We did have a bit of an issue with some of the pedlers, but the security seemed to have complete...

Fantastic to read you had a wonderful time at White Sands. Our One Bedroom Apartments are our most recently renovated rooms. They are one of the largest you will find on the beach and the only units that have TVs. Beds are a difficult thing. Some like ‘em hard, some like ‘em soft. We do our best. I am just...

When you first arrive you might find room small but it will grow on you. We stayed beachside and had no issues with front desk being across street. Loved the beach bar and after one of the daily special drink you will feel the "No Problem" vibe. Great sunbathing area and nice reggae music from the bar. Breakfast is fabulous...

The standard rooms on the beach side are our smallest rooms on the beach side. We price them accordingly so it is a trade off on price vs. size. I highly recommend booking a Deluxe Room on your next trip. They are all located in the building closest to the beach and because it will be your second trip, we...

The second room was also good but had issues with the shower. Told management and it was fixed the next day. Service was slow in getting meals but food was good. Overall for...
