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".

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... More

The place was clean and well kept, but really lacks amenities. Knowing that it was a condo, i was expecting a kitchen that was a bit better equipped, and was... More
