“Couldn't of Asked for a Better Place for Our Honeymoon!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2014

The hospitality was superb and accommodations exceptional. We went for our Honeymoon and stayed 5 nights. All the staff was very accommodating, especially Heather and Terri! They helped us plan our tours which made it very seamless. It was pretty incredible to see how the entire Island works together to accommodate tourists. We spent a lot of time seeing the sites, but it was nice coming back to the resort and relaxing. The full kitchen made it a lot easier for us, as we cooked a lot of our own meals. When we ate at the little bar/grill we really enjoyed the food, especially the burrito bites. Chico (one of the resort dogs) accompanied us for breakfast on our porch every morning making us feel right at home. Definitely recommend staying here, Ya Mon!

Room Tip: Beach front is the way to go!

We stayed a week and the vacation was so relaxing. Food at grill was good, not fast food, but home cooked. Went snorkeling at night during a storm, that was an adventure, a little scary but a lot of fun. Thanks to Heather for that trip. Took the kayaks out, first time for me, OK,a little sore, but found the giant buoy and snorkled at reef by ourselfs. Tip-find buoy first so you don't waste time. At low tide, water is not over your head, so if you are new to snorkling this is ideal. Went bike riding, bikes were in great shape. It was hot but air conditioner works great, room was just right for the two of us. Stay in the breeze and weather is perfect. Bring some Deet, the sandflies Will find you. Baby oil will keep them off as well, makes your skin slippery. Chico and Chicago, I miss them. They are the best little guard dogs and very well mannered. Take some dog cookies if you can. I see how people can recommend this place and go back so often, I will be back for sure.

Room Tip: We had garden view but next time beach view is where I will be.

Just spent 8 glorious days at White Sands Cove. Place is perfect! Low key, great beachfront unit, beautiful pool and extremely well run. Heather and Kevin will totally accommodate any request. Complimentary kayas and bikes-water taxi to San Pedro stops at the dock-just go-you will love it!

The first day we checked in I was a little surprised at our service given the reviews I had read on Trip Adviser. When we inquired about a market to pick up some food to have in the kitchen so we didn't have to eat breakfast out we were told that if we had used their drivers they would have stopped at the market but since we chose our own transportation we were pretty much on our own. At dinner time when we went to eat at the grill they were out of everything on the menu that appealed to us so we went down the beach to Ajis and had an excellent meal. Things did get better the next day and Kevin was very helpful in recommending a snorkel trip and Debbie arranged it perfectly. We had a one bedroom condo facing the beach that was quite comfortable although we never did end up using the kitchen. It's a great location with a number dining options within easy walking distance and beautiful views of the ocean. The best service experience however was when we arrived back in the States and found we had left some clothing behind. A phone call to Debbie took care of everything, she found the clothing and Heather shipped it to us. Heather even took time to follow up, tracking the package and emailing me updates on it's progress. That was totally unexpected and very much appreciated.

Room Tip: Be prepared for barking dogs in the night.

We stayed here over July 4th and agree with everyone's great reviews. We stayed in a 2 bedroom and it was almost as big as my condo. We wished we had either brought our kids or friends with us to enjoy the pleasant, laid back atmosphere. We liked having the complete kitchen facilities, although we did not use them much. We recommend stopping in San Pedro for groceries before going to the hotel if you plan to do any cooking. A bike vendor sells breakfast burritos by the beach, which is how we started most days (and he had tamales also available for taking back to the room for dinner.) Vegetable vendors stop by later in the day and you can buy from them as well. Like everyone else, we agree with the great service of all of the hotel's staff. Heather mentioned they are trying to get golf carts available at the hotel. That will be a nice addition. We would love to come back.

This was a spur of the moment getaway- So I booked thru Book it.com- did not know what to expect. I was very pleased- Kevin Heather and Debbie- were they best hosts anyone could ask for.
Dorothy the Bartender was quite wonderful too. From the minute we checked into this small great place, we were treated like we were old friends. The staff was so helpful and full of info- Our Condo right on the beach- White Sands made me feel like I was back in time 30 years ago. The Condo was just right- nice kitchen, bedroom and very clean bathroom. We just did not want to leave. Chico and Chica greeted me every morning and night- and they would sit with me at the beach or at the pool. It did help that I had doggie treats with me... the beach was safe and clean- one day I went walking while my husband dove the Blue Hole- I walked about 2 miles down the beach- very safe and everyone I met on the walk was so friendly. Several places to eat along the beach if you dont want to go into town or have a golf cart. Capricorn was very good- Stuffed Grouper- Aji- tapas dinner was great...I cant wait to come back to White Sands and bring my children the next time... Highly recommend, if you want the warm, friendly, small feel of family.

We loved our stay at WSC and will return. Kevin, Heather, and Deb were so friendly and attentive that we felt like we were honored guests in their home. One night, Kevin and Heather postponed their dinner for hours to make sure I was told that my dive trip to blue hole had cancelled for the next morning...That is customer service!!! Chico and chica [pet doggies] were always at our side as we hung out by the pool or beach which also made us feel at home. We had beach front, 1 bedroom [B4] and loved waking up to see the beautiful view right outside or balcony. The room was well appointed with everything you needed except the bed [very hard]...the only negative. The pool was clean and the drinks at the bar were great. The property was well maintained by the staff and we loved the comfy lounge chairs under our own palapa, next to the beach.
The sand path next to the beach is where you could walk to the great local bars and restaurants. If you walk to the right [north] you have Aji tapas [300 yards], Lonely Crock BBQ [500 yards], and The fun, cool Palapa Bar [800 yards].
We rented a cart for a couple of days and it was a must to check out the north and south part of the island. The road north of the bridge was sanded smooth the day before we left so it made for a much more pleasant ride back to the airport as before it was pretty rugged.
Overall we loved our stay and will be returning to see Kevin, Heather, Deb and can't forget Chico and Chica!

Room Tip: Spend the extra $ for the beach front rooms. The view is worth it.
