White Sands was a great place to unwind. The grounds of the hotel are gorgeous & the up-keep is amazing! The only downfall is that the beach is often littered with trash. Every morning the tractor of the hotel came and picked up the pile of plastic bags & trash that had been washed ashore only to bury it in...

I always loved to be here, the rooms are alright and the staff is really friendly. Liked the bar outside a lot, when having a drink in the evening it's really cosy. Also beach is not far away so no need to travel around for too long. Thx for everything.
