When our greeter and host, Terri, came to the dock we asked her to put away the red carpet. She treated us like the rich relatives from the very moment our feet got until the teary good bye. You couldn't ask more from such a gracious person. Though she quit laughing after the third or fourth joke about seeing more... More

We had an amazing time staying here, Terri was absolutely great and truly handles everything for you! We didn't have to make a single phone call. She even took care of calling and making sure our luggage got to us since the airline had lost it. The beach in front of the resort isn't a beach you can get in... More

To be clear from the start I did NOT stay in the White Sands Cove Resort. I was very much looking forward to it and we had booked a 5 day-stay but Hurricane EARL decided otherwise. Right from the start, before the real damage was known, we received good advice not to come immediately and the hotel proposed to convert... More

White Sands Cove Resort is just 2.5 miles north of San Pedro. This could be annoying for some, as getting to and from the "downtown" area requires a little more effort and $$, but for my group and I, it was a perfectly removed oasis from the hustle and bustle of San Pedro. It was a little slice of paradise,... More

We cannot say enough good things about White Sands Cove, their concierge Terri, and the entire staff. We hesitate to give this amazing review for fear people will discover White Sands Cove, but we cannot help ourselves.

We found White Sands Cove Resort through Belize Beach Suites and it was a really nice,quiet, well kept property. It is located just north of the town of San Pedro on Ambergris Caye off of Belize. This Caye is a popular choice when you decide to visit you want to "go to Belize". We spent over a week on the... More

I chose White Sands based on the TA reviews and was not disappointed. The grounds were lovely, the hospitality was incredible (Teri rocks) and the location was just far enough away from the hubbub of South San Pedro which was easily accessible by the bikes that they provide. Coffee service is provided in the morning and the bar/kitchen is open... More
