Having been to this complex a dozen times returning in two weeks I say go with whichever gives you the best price. Guests at all four resorts can use amenities at all four except the Royal area. The best beach is on Kantenah which abuts Colonial. Colonial has the most action; White Sand a reef for snorkeling. Some White Sand rooms also have ocean views. Colonial is very central.

I agree - go on price unless there is something specific with respect to rooms that are important to you.

We stayed in White Sand only because of the deal we got but spend all our time at the Colonial beach and pool because from WSbuildig 59 it was the closest.

Just got home from the White Sand resort 2 days ago. It truly does not matter where you stay. Colonial by far has more action, and White Sand is quieter for sure. The truth is you can go where ever you want once you get there, be it to eat, hang out, swim or drink. Don't be overwhelmed by the size of the resort. Grab a little map when you get there and you will soon see there are short cuts to everything. As the others said, chose where you sleep based on the budget and room style that suits you best. Have a great time, I'm sure you will love it! It was nice and warm when I left on Sunday......

Is the Royal Suites worth the additional money?

I know many people who have stayed in the Royal suites and they wil never go anywhere else. I have had the privilege of having Royal amenities as a multi repeat guest and the extra amenities are wonderful. If it's in the budget I would do it.
