I recommend staying at White Sands for a few nights, but not for too long.
The price suited our budget, the staff were helpful and friendly, and the beach was beautiful and quiet.
Jambiani White Sand's weakest points are their breakfasts - small and boring, and the cleanliness/upkeep of their rooms.
We struggled to have even cold showers, as we had to ask for water to be pumped everytime we needed it. Our basin permanently leaked water onto the floor, and the celing fan made a terrible noise!
There were a few power cuts, and the wifi was out of order for a few days.
However, the friendly Jambiani local people made up for it, and we will definitely return to the area!
