What a lovely little beach. Great for walkers and runners. Children can make loads of sandcastles complete with moats. It is a blue flag beach so is therefore suitable for swimming... weather did not allow this on our visit.

My husband, 20 year old son and I needed a short break from the crazy holiday season. We were looking for a place to relax and regroup as a family. This was the place. The 2 brothers that own the place were there every day updating and maintaining the property, so it was obvious how much they cared about their...

I've been coming to White Sands Beach Resort since I was a small child in the 1960s and my mother and grandparents and other assorted late relatives since even before that. We make a pilgrimage here, a 17-hour drive, every summer for three generations and have known the family that owns it (also multi-generational) for decades. If you want fancy,...

This hotel is directly on the beach. We could step out our door, walk several steps to the beach. The pool was always clean and warm. The rooms could pass a white glove test. Our group had four separate rooms. Have to book early, as folks from Australia like to winter here. Highly recommend, and will be returning some time...

Stayed here for a week with two of our children. It's family friendly, clean, safe and low key. Just perfect for a relaxing vacation. We intend to return! The saltwater pool is clean and in good shape. The units are just steps away from the beach. We can hear the waves at night. The beds are comfortable and the kitchens...

This was our fourth stay at White Sands. I think our visits get better every time. Ken in the office gave us a tip where we could spot some manatees and we did! We stayed in 9A we definitely missed the view from room #1 (which we stayed in last 2 times) Oh the view! Loved our stay, can't wait...

For a gulf front facility, this place has all others beat on price. All staff was very nice and helpful with suggestions for us. The beds could have been a bit more comfortable. Pool was always clean. Very homey atmosphere. Will be back!

“Rooms 1, 11, 12, & 14 good for larger families - and face the Gulf. You are steps away from the water (pool and Gulf) from any room.”
  • From Room 1, you can eat dinner with this view.
