My husband and I live in the US and escape often to the tropics during the winter for a week or so to relax and reset. White Sands Cove is the only place in the past 20 years we have stayed at multiple times. When the hurricane hit Belize earlier this year, we were concerned the area would never be...

What sets White Sands Cove apart from all of the other resorts we looked at staying, was the simple BEAUTY of the property! :) Every room is STEPS from pool and the sea, and because it is small, you get to know all of the staff! Food on the island can get a little pricey, so it was GREAT to...

My wife and I have stayed at White Sands several times now -- both by ourselves and with friends -- and we've had a fantastic experience every time. Beautiful property, helpful staff, and a really relaxing pool area (our favorite part). Plus it's the right distance from town in order to be able to make easy trips into San Pedro...

No better place on the island to coordinate my water and diving adventure. WSC is as serene as it looks online. I met many wonderful travelers during my stay and was very happy with the service I received at the onsite bar and restaurant. Solid staff, comfortable and hip living accommodations. Totally recommending this place for anyone looking for affordable...

We recently spent another wonderful week at White Sands Cove. Once again the staff was amazing and the unit was perfect. We spent a few nights just sitting at the bar around the pool enjoying the drinks and great food. A huge thank you to the attentive staff for another relaxing vacation!

Hi Jim, First, I would like to thank you for choosing to stay at White Sands Cove. I'm sorry to hear you feel our resort is "overrated by far". The food from our kitchen does take some time to prepare - this we do not deny. In fact, it is stated on our menu that everything is prepared fresh and...

My girlfriend and I spent 3 lovely nights at White Sands Cove. On the night we arrived, the staff was waiting for us and went over the rules of the property while we were treated to a rum punch (the best one of the several we sampled on the island). The resort itself is made up of several stand-alone buildings...
