Dated but very clean and directly on the beach! The people tend to stay here for a while. It is family owned by the same family for 37 years. The owners are nice.

If you want a completely relaxed break on a stunning, pristine beach then White Sands truly is the place. A totally laid back place with the benefit of very helpful and friendly staff. Anna Maria has all the amenities of a modern town but still remains unspoilt allowing a really relaxed holiday. White Sands suited us (a family of 4) but would also suit anyone who wanted a pure, beach holiday.We loved it so much, we wil be returning this Xmas with parents in tow.

Stayed: November 2010, travelled with family

Been staying at White sands for years and finally remembered to leave feedback. Laid back owners who make sure your stay is comfortable, hassle free and a true vacation getaway! Located on one of the best beaches on Anna Maria Island. Very reasonable. You can walk to the public beach and many restaurants. Pool is always just the right temp and never cold. Linda always keeps us supplied. These guys have helped give our family some of the best memories of our lives. Already looking forward to our next stay at The White Sands! Thanks Jeff and Ken. The Leslie's.

Room Tip: Room 1 if you could ever get it.

We stayed at the White Sand on 2 occasions last year - once in January and again in November. As other people have said its great! Anna Maria Island is unlike the rest of Florida - almost unspoilt and White Sands is homely and comfortable. The staff are very friendly, the beach is superb and the accommodation is perfect. And the price is great - what more can I say?

We'll be going back!

This is a small resort so it is filled with a down home feeling, everyone is so nice and willing to do anything for you. I loved it. It is much nicer than the pictures make it look. I would recommend it to anyone. I hope to visit alot.
