This place might suit people who want to self-cater, and rent a car to access shops, swimmable beaches and local sights. I can’t have done my homework well on this resort because it wasn’t what we were after. Let me start with some good things … The beach is wondrous, set into a small cove. The sea is the horizon...

Thank you for taking the time to write this review and I note your concerns and will address them. We are always needing to change the covers on the furniture because often there is sea mist coming up and they get damp often so we have already discussed changing the covers to a bright red or orange, this will just...

Very basic: Rooms were "clean enough" but no attention to details. Cups and glasses had not been washed - dried coffee in cups, dirty glasses. The electrical socket for the internet connection of the resort was in our room but no note to say "do not disconnect".... we learned we had to disconnect the fridge to plug in the toaster...

Thank you Robyn for your concerns. We have discussed it at the staff meetings to correct the issues. There is a sign up now for the internet connection and another double plug is going into the room. There will be further staff training to increase the standard. New floor mats and lamps have been purchased in NZ and will be...

We found the positive comments of other reviewers to be spot on - large well furnished rooms, great breakfasts, pristine beach, good pool - and in particular how wonderful Gloria and her team are. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they even invited us to share in their New Year's Eve celebrations. Would love to go back one...

What a remarkable gem. In late October 2015, over 5 days, a group of around 30 people (local plus overseas) held a bible school at White Sands. We had the place to ourselves which was awesome. The staff were so friendly and helpful and we worked in with them to provide some of our own meals. The rooms were very...

We really enjoyed our stay at White Sands. It is nothing fancy, very low key and wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea but it was fine for us. It was great to have an ensuite bathroom and toaster, jug and fridge in the room and the highlight for the kids was the swimming pool(clean and inviting!) where they spent a...

We were the only guests at White Sands (it was during off-season) and we felt completely at home. The employees and owner are very hospitable and nice. The property and beach are beautiful. We were most impressive with the cleanliness of the property and room, and the beach front.

“Which ever room you chose to stay in, you will have the beach very close to your door. This resort is not near any type of entertainment or amenities. You will need a ride or a rental car to get anywhere. The room was very clean. The shower could have been a little updated and with a different shower curtain, but the water pressure and temperature were great.”
  • Great piece of property!
  • We stayed in the room closest to the beach.
