We stayed at White Sand Bungalows for Xmas 2012. We arrived in the middle of the night by car+boat which the owners, Kurt & Kiza, had arranged for us.
We did the booking via mail from home, which is recommendable during the peak season as the resort is very popular. Remember to bring cash - there's no ATM on the island and for most parts cards are not accepted.
Rooms and food: The rooms are basic - but the price is resonable and includes a very nice breakfast. We also had Christmas dinner at the resort along with some of the other guests - it was very good food and included some of the biggest shrimps we have ever seen.
Staff: The staff and owners are very nice and helpfull.
Location: The major upside for us was the location. It's just around the corner from Bounty Beach, but is located on a more private beach which means more peace and quite. Bars and happy hour is just a five minute walk away - so you are close to everything and still able to lay on the beach all by yourself.
