What an amazing place! The resort itself could not have been any better. The location is great as it is a bit outside of town, yet still only a short 5-10 minute golf cart ride into town. Once we arrived, Terri, at the front desk, was so incredibly helpful and friendly from the second we walked into the front office,... More

Well maintained, kick- back feeling at White Sands Cove for both couples and families alike. We traveled with 2 adults and 3 teens, all of us put this vacation as one of our top picks. Lovely pool (accessible 24/7 for those of us who like to swim laps early) and dock (fully accessible as well for star-gazing), much appreciated. We... More

The excellent staff at White Sands Cove really make the difference, especially if this is your first time to Ambergris Caye. Having Terri and Dennis there to advise on snorkeling, diving and adventures and then set the whole trip up for your group makes all the difference. This was our first time to Ambergris Caye and chose this property based... More

Sometimes the simplest of experiences are the ones that mean the most. A leisurely kayaks to the reef, or the soft chime of palms in the breeze. The world is an entirely different place when you start to notice all those little things that make it so special. We are so glad you chose to stay with us, and take... More

Belize was a great vacation. Small airport, easy access to Ambergese Caye. WhiteSands staff, location, accommodations, food and access to activities was outstanding. Great places to explore with resort bikes and kayaks.

All the great comments about staff friendliness, cleanliness and outstanding views in the other reviews are spot on. If you want to take advantage of the numerous activities on the island, Terri will let you know every option available and will book for you if you wish. She was most helpful in arranging water taxis to and from a few... More

My girlfriend and I spent 4 nights in March. The service was outstanding from being picked up at the airport, booking snorkeling events, arranging a golf cart, and providing information on restaurants and sightseeing. Terri treated us like family from day 1 and Doris mixed magical drinks at the bar. Our room was on the second floor of a duplex... More

This is a LONG overdue review for White Sands Cove Resort. My husband and I spent a wonderful week in the Hummingbird Suite in January 2015. We have travelled all over the world and honestly this was the most relaxing and welcoming place we've visited. The staff are amazing -- incredibly friendly, helpful, unobtrusive and accommodating. Insanely beautiful location. We... More

It is our last day here and we enjoyed our spring break in Belize. But... Wifi is Very spotty. The restaurant is not open for breakfast so you should stop to buy some breakfast items on the way from the airport or water taxi pier. You can also use bikes for free or rent a golf cart for a day... More

First and foremost, we are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay in Belize. The Belizean culture is something we try very hard to support and celebrate. A huge part of celebrating local tradition is understanding and accepting that a great amount of time and care are involved in the preparation of local cuisine. The entire process of... More

Overall White Sands was a great resort. My husband and I were greeted by friendly staff and a complimentary "welcome cocktail" which was delicious. We stayed in a garden villa and the room had a sweet older charm. Unfortunately the seagrass created a foul smell throughout the island, nothing the resort could do about it, and the smell did work... More

This resort was a very relaxed and peaceful environment. The staff were great and quite helpful with whatever needs were present from setting up trips, to caring our bags, to making helpful suggestions for local excursions. The units were nice, clean, and well kept with great views. Wifi could be a bit faster, but let's face it, if you're going... More
