Surfing for 'the' idyllic Belize Vacation Resort? Stay awhile, please. You might decide that we are it.

Stay awhile, please. TripAdvisor cites us year after year for a "Travelers' Choice" Award. Here's why.


Welcome. You've probably heard about the wonders of a Belize Vacation -- a majestic mix of clear turquoise waters, spectacular scenery, exhilarating adventures and a tranquil, interesting island atmosphere. But where to stay, that's the challenge. What we are not is a large and impersonal destination resort. We are very personal. We care a lot about our guests, one by one and, happily, many return with friends and family. Why? Check out the testimonials on this site. Many pleased guests, in fact, have even volunteered their comments on the website TripAdvisor.com -- like "absolutely beautiful setting," "impeccable service," "a piece of paradise," "absolutely amazing place," "expectations exceeded," and "wish I was still there." We appreciate those reviews, and try very hard, every day, to live up to them.

So if you're envisioning an intimate, tropical, service-dedicated, direct-beachfront Caribbean destination, a Belize Resort just a few minutes north of picturesque San Pedro, we are all of those things. We provide comfortable and very appealing accommodations, in suites created by an interior designer who found and fell in love with this beachfront property at water's edge. We are confident you will greatly enjoy a stay with us and your easy access to all the adventures a Belize Vacation offers, right from our private dock. You will have one regret, however: that you had to leave it all. Here is just one recent guest review that says it all:

"What a great vacation!!
Howard, my apology for not getting a note to you sooner (busy at work). BUT...speaking for my wife, sister-in-law and myself…we had a wonderful time at White Sands. It was everything you said and more. What a beautiful suite we had just feet from the ocean. Our villa had the perfect view and everything within to make our stay 'the best ever.' Our compliments to Marlon and all the White Sands employees…the units, grounds and pool are so clean. We just hated to leave. We have not stopped talking about this wonderful adventure to Ambergris Caye, Belize. Thank YOU for putting it all together. Until next time!!"
--Jim, Gail & Nancy

The things you’ll want to know:

Where we are
Our Ambergris Caye direct-beachfront resort is just north of San Pedro, a fun and picturesque 10-minute water-taxi ride or interesting bike or golf cart ride away. Walk the two miles to town? Some hardy guests do, then boat back, with packages.

Our Guests
We welcome singles, couples, families, groups of friends, children of all ages, anniversary celebrants, wedding parties and honeymooners -- we host many, and our record of return guests makes us proud. Take a look, by clicking above, at what some of our past guests have said about their time with us.

Our Beach
We enjoy 200+ feet of natural, pristine Caribbean beachfront, with our own 250' dock, to which all the local guides come to pick up our guests for one-of-a-kind excursions, both on the island and on the Belize mainland.

Our Property
We offer a freshwater pool w/a wrap-around deck and comfortable chairs for sunning and lounging; 60-channel cable TV; free wi-fi internet access; free bicycles and kayaks; rental golf carts; a game room; beachfront volleyball; a poolside bar serving great drinks and substantial meals/snacks; our Black Orchid Spa w/diverse services; palm trees and hammocks; and an outdoor barbecue.

Divers?
Ambergris Caye is diver's heaven, and some of the island's best certified divemasters take our guests out all day, every day, right from our dock, to dive (and snorkel) at many of the more than 50 dive venues available just 500 yards off shore at the second largest barrier reef in the world. The guides are great with experienced and neophyte divers alike, and are trusted and appreciated by all of our dive guests. Need PADI certification? Not a problem. Never dive before, but intrigued? Take our one-day "resort course" and discover a whole new underwater world. You will find our on-site dive staff both experienced, and helpful.

Food & Drink?
At our poolside bar & lounge, again, you'll find enticing snacks - ceviche, chips and salsa, shrimp cocktail, chicken fingers, meat pies, nachos, and lots of local baked goods, with more selections coming. You'll also enjoy dining around. You can beach-walk in minutes to some of the island's best shorefront restaurants and bars, and San Pedro itself is a mecca for moderately priced dining discoveries, its restaurants serving food from many cultures. Or, when you're all dined-out, you can prepare meals right in your own fully equipped kitchen, shopping in San Pedro supermarkets or ordering groceries delivered to your suite.

Our Management
You will greatly enjoy the personal, caring, very experienced on-site management. They delight in treating everyone like family. They will help you plan all the things to do and see that you've heard about and that brought you to the island, and send you home delighted that you came.

How You Get To Us
Simplicity itself. We will book your connecting flight from Belize City to San Pedro; we will meet your plane, taxi you to a nearby supermarket, if you wish, then directly to our resort, a brief ride along a scenic back road. The staff will greet you and escort you to your suite. Also awaiting you: a free welcome drink at our poolside bar.

Our Service Commitment
Finally, if you elect to join us, before you depart for your Belize Vacation we’ll provide you with unparalleled email and phone support, giving you information on Ambergris Caye, excursion opportunities and dining recommendations, and answering your questions whenever they occur to you -- a nearly round-the-clock responsiveness we have been told by guests is unique on the island.

 

Our Accommodations  

We are unabashedly proud of our accommodations. Our 1BR and 2BR/2BA air-conditioned, beachfront suites all have fully-equipped kitchens, right down to the blenders and coffee-makers, and are fully furnished, right down to the linens and beach towels.

All project quality throughout -- in their construction, their spaciousness (550 square feet for 1BRs, 1,100 for 2BRs), their tile floors and countertops, the cabinetry of mahogany and Belizean cedar, the decorative imports from Mexico and Guatemala, the stainless steel ceiling fans, the cathedral ceilings, the spacious bedrooms with custom-designed furniture, the hand-made sinks and large showers, lots of windows facing the Caribbean waters and offshore barrier reef. We believe you’ll find these suites exceptional, and uncommon for island accommodations. All are entertainment-quality. Daily maid service? You bet.

Ambergris Caye -- La Isla Bonita:

Only sophisticated or adventurous travelers know there is a Caribbean island so close to mainland America, and so welcoming. Ambergris Caye, 20 miles off the Belize mainland,is directly on beautiful Caribbean beachfront, just a short, non-stop flight from Miami, Atlanta, Charlotte, Houston and Dallas. There are long stretches of beaches to walk; elegant and down-home shorefront restaurants; bicycles and water-taxis and golf carts to take you wherever you want to go; water toys of every description; the sandy streets of San Pedro, where you can shop its boutiques barefoot, email friends from internet cafes, savor local foods in affordable restaurants, hang out at atmospheric beachside bars, disco or gamble a bit, and interact with friendly locals who truly enjoy visitors to their island. Most of all, there are unforgettable adventures and excursions to experience -- from snorkeling 500 yards offshore at the second largest barrier reef in the world, to swimming with sharks, to inland jungle cruises and Mayan ruins and cave tubing. And, of course, there is scuba diving -- Ambergris Caye is divers' heaven, with more than 50 dive venues to explore, all teeming with exotic marine life. The locals call Ambergris Caye La Isla Bonita. You may as well, and once you discover it, you'll likely be back.

Excursions:

White Sands Cove is a launching pad for Belize adventures of many kinds. Just a few:

Diving? Whatever your skill level, our carefully-selected divemasters will work with you to improve those skills while introducing you to the many underwater wonders of Ambergris Caye.
