Down to one

After much consideration I think we like White Sands. I know it's small and nothing glamorous but the little info I could find said their stretch of beach is really nice and that's most important for us. We are looking at Unit 1. Any opinions (please)?

White Sands is a small, quiet, no frills complex on a fabulous shaded beach. That is not to say that it is not well maintained, just a smaller, basic property. The sand is soft, water entry is very easy. There are only a few units in the rental pool and I have never seen the beach there crowded.

A car will come in handy for groceries, restaurants, etc. There are a couple of beach bars within walking distance. For a couple looking for peace and quiet it is ideal. There are two 1 bedroom rental units, one looked more modernized

( kitchen and bath ) than the other but I don't remember which one. I have been in White Sands' units and they are nice, it's the beach that can't be beat. It would be a good choice for the two of you.

You're welcome, great choice! You will have a patio that is right on the beach, a privacy wall between you and your neighbor ( if there is one ) and a beautiful view. You will love it. Make sure you have a rental car or are willing to utilize the public minibus system. I don't.

Just walked past White Sands again today. It has an amazing stretch of well shaded beach.

wow! thanks everyone. this is the most difficult part of planning a trip to somewhere new and getting ready to fork over lots of $$$ for a place you have only seen a tiny picture of. Hearing that a few of you can say that it will be nice helps a lot.
