    Lovely surroundings but the rooms smell damp and are in need of a revamp. Food is good, not the best around but not the worst. Staff are friendly but a little slow and tend to disappear during busy periods .More

    White Sands is a rather large resort but the clever design makes it manageable and you soon feel comfortable and not overwhelmed. I particularly liked that the area for residents is separated (with a sign) from that accessible to day-visitors. The reception staff are nice,...More

    Just as has been said, generally there no big difference. You are better of asking the hotel to pick you up it is part of what they offer. Enjoy your stay.

    I was able to use it for a 8000 entry fee and then 10000 fee for the wifi code. So yes, but not for free.

    Hi Bill taxi transfer from the airport to the hotel is between USD $35_40. Depending on your negotiation skills. You can pay in dollars or Tanzanian Shillings around 40K Tanzanian Shillings. Distance one way is about 35km.
