Met by a couple of the employees down the road from the cottages as the road was being constructed. Managed to get all our suitcases on one bike and we took the short stroll down.
Made to feel relaxed, carefree and at home as soon as we arrived.
The huts are kept clean and the bathroom is perfect with an Outdoor shower experience.
You can pay cheaper down the beach but you be compromising on location, service, food and on the whole a fantastic experience.
Friendly staff, wonderful food, amazing beach and a fantastic location.
Would rather not write this to ensure availability for the future but they totally deserve the best review.
All the family had a great holiday and within the 5 days we were there the road was finished!

We are staying here until next week when it closes, we have a beautiful beach bungalow with sea view; it's magical. The bed is huge and comfy with an outdoor garden bathroom which is delightful.
The staff are lovely, they can't do enough for you. The food is EXCELLENT.
The beach is deserted, tranquil and quiet; the nicest beach around.
There are a few local shops towards the South end of the beach, but this place remains unspoilt, there are no high rise hotels only beach huts lining the sea front and a few local fishing boats that share the beach with a few cows.
There are a few restaurants and bars and everyone is friendly.
I don't want to leave and am already planning to return.

We stayed 5 nights in February 2014 and White Sands did not disappoint. It is as good as the majority of the reviews indicate. Location towards the end of one of Goa's (India's) best beaches. Totally relaxed atmosphere -excellent restaurant especially the seafood and tandoori.Great staff exuding friendship and helpful advice .Thanks Sunni , Raj and Vish and all the staff. . Rooms are spacious and well equipped with safes , mosquito nets and open air bathroom. It is however the location and barefoot feel that sets it apart .Whether relaxing on the loungers or on the cottage veranda,sipping sundowners or enjoying the food -some of the best in agonda-its all about location and quality. Our stay passed too quickly and we would certainly be happy to return tomorrow. .

Room Tip: we prebooked the infamous 101 and it was worth it, right on the beach!It does cost a little more but...

Agonda White Sands is a beautiful place. The location on a practically deserted white sand beach is absolutely idyllic. The warm welcome was great the staff are really attentive and pleasant. the shacks were absolutely wonderful. The outdoor bathrooms are beautifully done and it is great showering out in the elements.

The food was beautiful and surprisingly cheap.You would think that the price of drinks and food would be a premium here but they are as cheap as anywhere else you would go.

This is an ideal place to chill out. We literally kicked our sandals off on arrival and didn't put them back on until we left. It is great to walk along the beach of a night to sample the restaurants and there are plenty of them to chose from.

We spent 3 nights here with friends and had a fantastic experience staying here. It was great to sit of an evening on the balcony with a drink listening to the sea crash on the beach.

I would highly recommend a stay at Agonda White Sands and if you prefer peace and quite to hustle and bustle I would recommend spending a week here it is stunning!

Room Tip: All the shacks are of equal quality some are a little closer to the beach but you are talking of a f...

Stayed here for 3 nights whilst exploring South Goa, these really are very nice beach huts, and if you compare the price of these with others along Agonda beach you can see you get what you pay for, there are similarly priced huts we looked at but these were easily the best. Huts are clean and comfortable, safety deposit boxes, mozzy net, very clean bathrooms, comfortable beds and secure too. We have just a small but important point you should note about location of some of the huts, the whole site is arranged around a central structure comprising a bar, reception / cooking area, if you get allocated a hut nearer the rear of this structure (we did) you get noise from this area quite early in the morning (if you've got a beach front hut it won't be a problem but we did think that beach front hut prices were a little steep, it's all about your perception of location location location). Food here is of a good standard and comparable to other venues on price.

Room Tip: Huts nearer the beach front suffer less morning noise

This was our first stay at white sands, but we will be back. The huts are spacious & open air bathrooms amazing, not many showers (warm water too) have views of the stars.
We had 2 huts next to the beach & practically in the restaurant, which was no problem as the music is turned off by 10pm & everything closed by 10.30. The staff even brought our morning coffee to our terrace without being asked.
The food here is great & is how we first discovered white sands, Without sounding too British, they do the best chicken tikka masala in the world.
Breakfast isn't included, but is served from the main menu all day, so you don't feel pressure to get up early & each dish is divine.
As we had a late 4am arrival, we arranged a taxi through white sands, which was waiting at the airport, the night porter was expecting us & we were allowed to check in the following morning.
Sun loungers are available, if you can secure one before the cheeky kittens.
The worst part for us, was we weren't at white sands long enough. The perfect place to switch off relax in paradise.
