“Good value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

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.

Set within a pretty enclosed garden on the beach, my initial impression of White Sands was positive. I had pre-booked 10 days in the cheapest room but quickly extended this to 17 nights. My room was attached to the main house and I was suprised at how cool it was. The majority of the time it was cool enough to not even use the fan at night and provided a refreshing sanctuary from the daytime heat. The staff were friendly and accommodating, even bringing me Ginger tea when I was unwell. I would not hesitate in recommending White Sands. Although basic, it offers everything one would need at a reasonable price. Thanks guys, had a great time staying with you and will be back in the not too distant future.
