“Doris and Miguela!”
Reviewed 24 February 2014

Stopped in at the White Sands while walking on the beach for a snack and drink. Doris is the best bartender on the island and has a way of providing awesome service while leaving no doubt that she is in charge! Her margaritas and rum punch are the best we have tasted and she is very open to making them as per request. She is a wealth of information on Ambergris Caye. We returned twice for dinner and Miguela's Shrimp Alfredo and Belizean Jerk quickly convinced us she is every bit as good a chef as Doris is behind the bar. We have not stayed at White Sands but if the rooms and other services live up to the standard set by Doris and Miguela it would be a great place to stay. If you are walking or biking by, stop in have Doris make you her special rum punch!

Beautiful place with wonderful hosts. Ward and Jenna were delightful and helpful in setting up our excursions. Extremely clean villas and pool area. We were blessed with a warm tropical breeze each day. Only disappointment was no sandy beach front to walk out into the ocean.

Room Tip: Ocean front villas offers a nice breeze into the apartments.

We did not stay at this resort but were recommended to rest bikes from another place we were staying up the road. Jenna and Ward were so friendly and accommodating, that we would definitely stay here on our next visit! Also, Jenna helped us book an adventure to the Mayan Ruins and was helpful and honest about the transportation, pricing, what to bring and nice when we changed our minds.

Room Tip: Again, we did not stay this time nor did we see the rooms although getting to know this couple, I...

Love Doris! Stopped in one day while walking on the beach and have been back every night since! Best Margarita's on the island! Love the food there also. Only bad part is they close by 7:00. Plan ahead as it is worth the trip!

We stayed a week at White Sands Cove and thoroughly enjoyed the property. Jenna and Ward provided outstanding service and we felt most welcome in every way. The food was great and the staff made everything super easy for us - snorkeling trips, restaurant reservations, golf cart rentals, etc. We would absolutely come back to White Sands Cove Resort and we highly recommend it.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at White Sands Cove. The location was great and service was outstanding. Having access to free bike rentals made it easy to explore the island, and the staff went out of their way to make sure everything was as easy as possible for us (water taxi service, snorkeling trips, restaurant reservations and recommendations, etc.) I highly recommend!

We stayed as a couple for a week at beautiful White Sands Cove. Ward and Jenna were wonderful and provided the best service. They went above and beyond to accommodate us and would literally give us the clothes off their backs if we needed it. We felt most welcome by them and the rest of their staff, who always greeted us at every passing. As a foreigner in a new country, I felt very welcome and at home here at White Sands Cove.

The resort itself is wonderful-it is clean, beautifully landscaped and offers the perfect place to relax without the big crowds you might find at a larger resort. There is a bar by the pool where you can get drinks and order food. (The chef is amazing!) There is a walking/bike path that runs up and down the coast and also a dock you can fish off of or catch a water taxi from. The resort offers everything you need to have a good time-bikes, kayaks, golf carts, and excursions galore. We went on a sailing/snorkeling excursion to Caye Caulkner and had an amazing time! So whatever adventure you are looking for-or if you are just looking for a quiet place to relax poolside or in a hammock under the palapa, White Sands Cove is the place!
