We stayed at White Sands Cove during the first week of November and had one of the most relaxing vacations that we have probably ever had. Getting there is an adventure, but well worth the effort. Our accomodations were perfect, an out of the way suite with a large bedroom, seating area with kitchen and large screened-in porch. It was private, very clean and well maintained. Sitting on the beach or around the pool and looking out over the water, the view is like something from a travel magazine. I could have spent the entire week drinking a great Rum Punch by the bar (thank you, Ben and Doris), enjoying the view and the warm tropical weather reading a book; it was just so relaxing. We did go on a couple of excursions; fishing, snorkeling and to Caye Caulker, all arranged by the manager, Marlon. Our fishing trip was great, this was the kind of fishing my husband loves, throw out a line, and reel in a red snapper. We rented a golf cart for the week to get into town, and really enjoyed eating at many of the local restaurants, (the pupusas were a definite favorite), and shopping the small stores in town. White Sands is a great destination for a true vacation experience.

We stayed here at the end of October. The resort was near empty. The grounds are kept up nicely and the property is beautiful. The staff was always helpful and friendly and by the end of our stay it was like having to leave friends. A couple of notes, 1 - PIZZA Wednesdays (kitchen is closed Wednesday night) and 2 - Say "hi" to Chico and Chica (just go and find out).

Overall, our stay was great. We stayed in the hummingbird loft suite which was nice. My only complaint would be the kitchen was a bit slow at turning out meals during dinner and the food selection was small although the food was excellent. There are plenty of other resorts within walking distance which gives you a lot of options for food and entertainment.

I would certainly recommend this resort to anyone staying on the Island. A side bonus is Scuba School Belize has an office out of this resort making it a great place to go diving from.

Tips for staying here:
1 - Food at resorts (any) is expensive for dinner
2 - Travel into town is best by water taxi ($5 pp each way)
3 - Bring bug spray, seriously.

It's hard to put into words how great out experience was at White Sands Cove. The staff exceeded all of our expectations, It was like having our own personal assistant, we let them know the excursions we wish to take they made it happen, we asked them about a golf cart to travel the Island within the hour they informed us it was on its way. They arranged to have it delivered and picked up eliminating any hassles for us. Ben was our man at the bar his Rum Punch was the bomb he made sure you were never thirsty. If you ever get by as Ben about 3's a fun little game of dice. For us White Sands Cove will be a place we use to measure how well other resorts take care of there guests.

Room Tip: Rooms near the pool and bar have a fantastic view

White Sands Cove is a modern, clean and comfortable boutique hotel with large bedrooms and full kitchens. Marlon the manager, Doris in the bar/restaurant, and the guys in the dive shop all took good care of us, and we fell in love with the resident dogs. We could book all excursions through the hotel. White Sands is located at a very convenient spot for strolling along the path that stretches the length of Ambergris along the waterfront. There are restaurants within walking distance, and the water taxi will stop at the hotel’s pier to take you to town. If you want relax and be well taken care of, you would enjoy White Sands Cove.

Room Tip: Save a little money and get a room one building back from the water. Its still very close to the water and has a nice view.

My partner and I spent 10 days at White Sands recently and enjoyed our stay thoroughly. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Marlin set us up with a snorkel trip as well as a trip to the Mayan ruins and was always ready to help out. The facility itself is well kept up. Our room was well taken care of by the cleaning staff and we were very happy with it. I don't know how busy things get at other times of the year, but we certainly enjoyed being there with few people around, really allowing us to just relax and catch lots of Zs. Both thumbs up!
