“Most memorable ten days ever”
Reviewed 16 October 2011

This was my third time at WSC, my girlfriend and i stayed ten days in a beautiful room right next to the pool. It was by far the best vacation we both have ever been on. The grounds and pool are kept up daily, so all you have to worry about is, finding one of many things to do to have fun. Marlon the manager has a wide range of activities that he can sign you up with. Snorkeling, fishing, scuba diving, The Blue Hole! The Red Snapper are delicious, catch lots of those if you can. We rented a golf cart for the length of our stay, its a lot cheaper to buy a weekly pass for the water taxi, but you dont have the opprotunity to see as much of the island that way. Plus its a blast to cruise around on the cart when you go places. I would recommend this resort to anyone, its very quiet and you feel like you have the resort to yourself. Everyone is always so friendly and they appreciate you being there. I hope to see you there on my next visit to White Sands Cove. Sincerely Mike and Michelle

My girlfriend & I just returned from a trip to Belize and had the pleasure of staying at White Sands Cove. Marlon, the property manager, and the rest of the staff couldn't have been nicer. The place was spotless, our 1 bedroom unit was perfect, and Marlon the made arrangements for everything we wanted to do. He is an incredibly helpful and good natured person to be around, and his dog Riley is great. We used the bikes and sea kayaks and just lounged around the property; for what we wanted to accomplish on our vacation, White Sands was the absolute perfect choice. We were the only guests, as it's rainy/hurricane season (for our 3 straight days, there wasn't a cloud in the sky - weather couldn't have been better).

When we were reading reviews of places on Caye Ambergris, we noticed how many had reviewed this place but only had a history of 1 review. Now we know why - this was actually the first time I have felt compelled to leave a good review on TripAdvisor because we had such a wonderful experience. Highly recommended.

Thanks Marlon and Riley!

We stayed at White Sands for eight nights to celebrate our honeymoon. It was perfect!! Our condo had everything we needed and it was literally steps from the ocean, not to mention that it is a terrific value. We got to see lots of resorts on the island when we ventured out to find different places for dinner. Every time we got back to our room, we commented on how glad we were that we chose to stay there.
Marlon and Doris are so friendly and really are a wealth of knowledge about things happening and places to go. Marlon booked all of our trips for us and answered any questions that we had. We spent lots of time talking to Doris at the bar over rum punches and lunch. It was nice to have the option to eat and drink at the bar/restaurant on the property.

We are hoping to come back soon and wouldn't stay anywhere but White Sands!

Marlon, the manager, will take good care of you. Just book your reservation, and he will arrange the flight from Belize City to the island and the cab from San Pedro to the resort. Resort rates are very reasonable. The bar and grill on the premises are adequate, but not spectacular, however there are amazing restaurants in walking distance. I recommend using their partner dive company, EcoLogic, for diving and snorkeling - highly professional. If you chose to get a massage at the on-site spa request Taz - best massage ever!

We came to relax after a 5 week field school all over Belize, and White Sands Cove turned out to be the perfect place to relax. It was quiet, and far enough away from the people trying to sell you stuff, yet only a short golf cart ride to the middle of town. Marlon, the property manager, was great. He took care of everything we needed right away. The bar and restaurant is great, and if you feel like it, there are places within walking distance both up and down the beach. We stayed in the owner's villa and it was beautiful. We had the whole house to ourselves and it was so comfortable with big beds and comfy couches. All in all, our stay at White Sands Cove was perfect.

Overall White Sands Cove was a great place to stay. The staff was great and the manager (Marlin) and his dog (Riley) made us feel like one of the family. The rooms, the grounds and the view were perfect.

Room Tip: If possible stay in the ocean view rooms.

The room we had was nice. Never really used the kitchen much. The bar in the pool was fun. We spent quite a bit of time diving so when we came back it was nice to be able to hang out in the pool for the drink and a swim.

I was surprised that the pool was not louder, but the room was quite and we were right by the pool.

The wifi is messed up. Whoever set it up had no clue, but you could get access on the front porch and the pool, although it was pretty slow. Really we just used it to check email and look for restaurants.

Not sure about the restaurant. We only ate breakfast there and the food and service was good. There seemed to be someone taking over the restaurant there and the staff got significantly better the longer we stayed.

The staff on the dock that helps you set up trips (diving) is awesome. They were super helpful and the best dives we did were with their staff.
