Resort is a bit outdated and could use some remodeling, however the owners Jeff and Ken go above and beyond in providing a great service experience. I had to call one night super late because my key fell off the key holder and could not find it. Without hesitation he came back to

Great view, great rooms. Could use a little repair work as some of the tiles are a little loose and the inside doors don't close completely. However, the rooms are very clean and the pool is nice. The beach is just a step out the door. Beach chairs provided.

This was the 6th year coming to White Sands Beach Resort. It truly is our home away from home. We have come to know the owners like family and since we visit the same time each year, we have met so many frequent flyers of this little paradise. As I tell my husband, 100 steps f

How are the pull out beds? We are travelling with two kids (7 & 10). Trying to decide between being economical and having them share a pull-out or paying more for a 2 bedroom.
The pull out sofa bed is standard wire spring frame. My son said it's the same feel as what we have at home. eh I imagine 2 boys 7 and 10 will make it work, but the single room is small. My recommendation is the 2 room unit. 2 boys in the bed will work and you'll enjoy not walking g out and into a pull out sofa bed. Enjoy your time there and walk northbound to the Sandbar. Be sure to visit 2 scoops for ice cream, break fast (waffles) and dinner (chili dogs). Don't bother with the public beach unlimited breakfast it was mediocre at best. Every room has a Weber grill. you can get stuff at Dollar Tree, and charcoal at Publix. I'm jealous enjoy the area it's my favorite FL place.

"Any location is good."
"Rooms 1, 11, 12, & 14 good for larger families - and face the Gulf. You are steps away from the water (pool and Gulf) from any room."
"Nicely decoarted places, clean with everything need. No"
"only difference is over all size. 2 deluxe 1 BR's that overlook the pool & face the beach are really nice"
