Ward and Jenna were awesome! Ward ran to the end of the dock to flag down the water taxi for us on our first day. Jenna arranged a beautiful dinner for us (including transportation) for our anniversary. They told us where to shop and eat, and arranged all of our excursions. Jenna even set up a night snorkeling trip for us. Ward made coffee for everyone every morning. Doris made the best drinks on the island, and clued us in on all the local news and hot spots. Miguela made pastries for breakfast, and wonderful island lunches and dinners. Even the guests were nicer! We all looked forward to returning "home" in the evenings and getting together. No fancy rooms or buildings could beat the ambiance of WSC.

This was our first time in Belize and I believe we hit the jackpot with WSC. We walked the shores of San Pedro comparing resorts and WSC has to be one of the best. The other resorts were nice but most seemed just like hotels with a nice view. Each condo at WSC was very nice. We stayed in the hummingbird loft(honeymoon suite). It was a little ways away from the ocean but it was quiet. The pool was clean and the food was fantastic. There is only one shift for the bar tender and cook so be sure to enjoy the food before 7pm. Ward and Jenna couldn't have been more helpful. From the beginning of our stay till the end, the helped us with anything we needed. Great advise with excursions and things to do and places to see. Will recommend them to anyone traveling to Belize.

Room Tip: If you like to cook, the hummingbird loft is the only unit without a stove.

The resort itself is nothing to get overly excited about - Everything is fairly average, rooms are clean and well maintained but didn't blow my socks off. Jenna and Ward, however, are worth the trip and stay. They are incredibly accommodating and went the extra mile for us in booking excursions, offering advice and making reservations. I was blown away by their level of service as they truly went above and beyond. I am so so impressed and thankful for the two of them! Made my stay and vacation that much better. Thank you!

Stopped in at the White Sands while walking on the beach for a snack and drink. Doris is the best bartender on the island and has a way of providing awesome service while leaving no doubt that she is in charge! Her margaritas and rum punch are the best we have tasted and she is very open to making them as per request. She is a wealth of information on Ambergris Caye. We returned twice for dinner and Miguela's Shrimp Alfredo and Belizean Jerk quickly convinced us she is every bit as good a chef as Doris is behind the bar. We have not stayed at White Sands but if the rooms and other services live up to the standard set by Doris and Miguela it would be a great place to stay. If you are walking or biking by, stop in have Doris make you her special rum punch!

Beautiful place with wonderful hosts. Ward and Jenna were delightful and helpful in setting up our excursions. Extremely clean villas and pool area. We were blessed with a warm tropical breeze each day. Only disappointment was no sandy beach front to walk out into the ocean.

Room Tip: Ocean front villas offers a nice breeze into the apartments.

We did not stay at this resort but were recommended to rest bikes from another place we were staying up the road. Jenna and Ward were so friendly and accommodating, that we would definitely stay here on our next visit! Also, Jenna helped us book an adventure to the Mayan Ruins and was helpful and honest about the transportation, pricing, what to bring and nice when we changed our minds.

Room Tip: Again, we did not stay this time nor did we see the rooms although getting to know this couple, I...

Love Doris! Stopped in one day while walking on the beach and have been back every night since! Best Margarita's on the island! Love the food there also. Only bad part is they close by 7:00. Plan ahead as it is worth the trip!
