Just returned from a week at White Sands. It's not luxury but everything you need and the location can't be beat. Right on the beach, a nice pool, nice accomodations, and a great staff. Bed was more comfortable than my own. Convenient free island trolly stop right in front of the property. The only suggestion I would make is to... More

I was married on Anna Maria so it has a special place in my heart. I like to go over for quick weekend stays but this can be hard with more condos on the island than hotels. I stayed here over a year ago and the location is great. The rooms needed some improvements and there were some bug issues.... More

We just returned to the frozen North after a wonderful week at White Sands. The location was absolutely first-rate! We loved everything about our stay. The apartment was well equipped with just everything one needs for a relaxing, trouble fee stay. The only thing I wish was provided were pool towels so we wouldn't need to use the room towels...

Where our backyard was the Sand, Sea, & Sun in abundance! The 4 to 9 ft pool was always warm, refreshing, & sparkling. We were so cozy in our cool comfortable cottage with luscious greenery, palms, & birds of paradise in abundance. Staff was simply gracious, pleasant, & helpful.
