This resort is a great find. Our unit was spotless with more provisions then I expected. The pool and grounds were pristine. The manager, Ed, was friendly and knowledgeable about the area and restaurants. We did not rent a car for our week stay and had no regrets. Ed called Publix and told us they would deliver groceries we ordered... More

White Sands Resort is reminiscent of 1950's small inns. It's quiet and comfortable with pretty, well maintained grounds and spotlessly clean apartments with well equipped kitchens and comfortable beds all in an island decor. Ed and his staff are friendly and helpful. Walk to a wonderful, uncrowded white sand beach just 3 blocks away and to 5th Ave shops and... More

I hate to tell the truth about the White Sands. It's hard enough to get a place in Naples, If everyone knew how great this place was we would never get in. The location is perfect. Close to the beach, 5th Ave , 3rd Street. Very peaceful and quiet at night. Ed and the staff treated us like family. For... More

We traveled here the week of Memorial Day, 2014. The resort is small and set in the middle of a mostly residential area. About a 4 minute walk to the Gulf of Mexico beach and within walking distance to CVS, 5th Ave and 3rd Ave. Awesome location. We got unit #10 which I think is the only 2 bed unit.... More

Resort had most things we required for a young family and was extremely quiet. Accommodation was ok but a bit dated (furnishings and contents) staff were lovely and were always willing to provide any requests.

A perfect spot. 2 blocks from the beach. 2 blocks from old naples. Very comfortable spot. We loved white sands. Everyone was so friendly. If you like to socialize with other guest this is a great place for you. Ed the manager is great. He did an outstanding job running the resort. I would strongly recommend this resort.

We can't wait to go back! It's a really nice clean place with very nice staff. The other folks staying there have been going for years & they are a friendly bunch. The weekly rate was better than anywhere else in Naples & we will be going back as soon as we can.

We love Naples and finding this peaceful small complex was the icing on the cake! We were made welcome by Ed and Dave and the other holidaymakers, many of whom have been returning for many years. The apartment, pool and garden were ideal and very well presented, the library was well filled and the informal welcoming breakfast and a BBQ... More
