“a great place to stay”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

We were able to stay for 7 days and didn't want to come back home. Jenna and Ward were more than helpful with getting us to and from the airport, making trip plans and everyday tasks. The rest of the staff were always there as well to answer any questions and help all they could. We would come back over and over again.

This is the place to unwind. Ward and Jen and the staff are remarkably accommodating. The facility is clean and well maintained. White Sands Cove's location allows you to walk to restaurants and/or hop a water taxi for short trips to San Pedro and resorts and restaurants both to the north and south or you can stay at the hotel and eat the stuffed grouper ( a secret recipe we were told and we believe it). Any and all excursions can be readily booked from WSC. On an island where some of the resorts are massive, White Sands Cove is a quiet small gem. Note: the one bedroom suites go quickly. Go and sit by the pool or the water. You will not regret it and will want to return.

This was our third stay at WSC. We have come to know and love the staff and management. Traveling around the city and beach/resort areas, we don't see anything more appealing. We have stayed on the beach, in the middle by the pool and bar, and in the rear. All were very satisfactory. We think the rear area, L-1, was the best value. The grounds are very well kept and beautiful compared to larger condos that are all concrete. There is a fair amount of walk ins from other resorts to the restaurant/bar which makes for fun conversation. The cook, Maguela, is creative. We felt at home.

We stayed for 9 fabulous days at White Sands Cove. The resort was in a beautiful location, well maintained, clean and well appointed with everything you needed, minus the hassles and crowds of a larger resort. The amazing staff was available whenever you needed them, friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. Whether it was just a recommendation or having them take care of all the details for dinners out, transportation, diving excursions, zipline, cave tubing, hiking etc. etc. it literally took minutes to arrange and everything was exactly as promised. Special thanks to Ward, Jen and Marlan for going the extra mile, making a great vacation that much more enjoyable.

We loved our stay at White Sands Cove. The staff was absolutely lovely and planned a plethora of excursions for us. From zip-lining to cave tubing, deep sea fishing, snorkeling, swimming with sharks and rays, and several scuba trips. They coordinated water taxis on a daily basis and gave excellent dinner recommendations. The pool was a perfect oasis and the bar hosted yummy lunch and dinner. Make sure to take out the kayaks to finish off your perfect beach experience! Have fun:)

We stayed 7 days at the WSC resort over the Christmas holidays. We were two adults and two teenagers. We stayed in a lower 2-bedroom unit. We were steps from the pool, bar and restaurant. The room was very clean and well-maintained. The staff and service were the highlights of the stay. Everyone was friendly and helpful throughout the week. Flight delays caused us to be almost five hours late in arriving at San Pedro. The airport staff in Belize City allowed us to call and advise the hotel. Ward was able to adjust their schedule and had a car waiting upon our arrival. The driver was friendly and courteous and took us to the local grocery store to stock-up before continuing to the hotel. When we finally arrived at about 8:30, we were warmly welcomed by Ward and Jenna. The bar and restaurant also stayed open and made us a delicious meal for our first night on the Caye. We made breakfasts in the condo and ate out for lunch and dinners. The hotel is an easy walk from a variety of restaurants all of which were quite good. Jenna gave us an accurate and complete run-down of the local restaurant scene on our first morning. Our family consensus was that the food and service at WSC were the best of the stay. Ms. Miguela’s jerk, curry and seafood dishes were amazing: we like some spice in our food and were not disappointed. We took advantage of the pool, bikes, on-site dive shop and kayaks during the week. The day we took the bikes, we were the last out, so the bikes were a bit rough, but functional. The pool and grounds are beautiful and very well-maintained. Our main activity was diving. The dive-shop staff were great and we had several spectacular dives. The on-site shop is run by Belize Pro Dive Centre. All of the arrangements are made at the hotel and the dive shop provides a water taxi to-and-from their main location, about 10 minutes away. Overall, we loved the location of the hotel, it’s not in town, but it’s not far. We made a couple of trips to town by water taxi. We were also well- treated by the dogs, Chico and Chica. They adopted our family on arrival and were good companions throughout. We were sad to say goodbye at the end of the week. We would highly recommend the WSC for a stay on Ambergris Caye.

Before arriving to White Sands Cove I became ill and sick I was. I was very thankful for the spacious accommodations and all of the comforts of home; they made the thought of being ill in a foreign country less intimidating. Also, with the help of Jenna and Ward, I was well on my way to recovery, just as I had to depart. In the worst of times, I was very fortunate to have such a positive experience at White Sands Cove Resort. I would be eager to go back.
