We had a great (but short) stay at WSB. Cyrus especially was very friendly and helpful. Location was great. We enjoyed and would stay again and recommend to others.
We had a splendid experience during our stay. It was a calm, serene and luxurious accommodation. The beachfront 2 bedroom is gorgeous.
The WSB was the perfect hotel and location for what we were looking for. Great staff if needed, couldn't ask for a better location on the beach, and clean and beautiful rooms. A store is located just on the corner where you can buy all the food and drinks you want. Highly recommend this beautiful hotel!
We stayed a the White Sands Barbados (WBS). It was a great villa get away. Immaculately maintained with extra security. The pool was small but cozy and never really occupied. The beach was also intimate and the palm trees offered the perfect natural shade. Our villa was a 2 bedroom and was so large that I got tired walking from one area to the next so I mainly stayed on the magnificent terrace, which was so large it held a couch , 2 chairs, and a dinning room table. Buy some groceries and enjoy this accomodation.
We were met at the door, shown the entire property, delivered to our room and given a tour of the room and an explanation of how everything worked - where things like stores and such were. That was great. The atmosphere at the hotel was very private - there were no crowds, the beach was secluded and very private (and clean, and beautiful) . There are no hotel'ish amenities like a hotel restaurant, concierge, front desk - but trust me - you won't miss them. Lots of eating possibilities a short walk away (recommend: Luigis - 5 minutes away and great). This was more like renting a private condo for a week. Definitely would go there again.
It doesn't get any better than this! We had a beachfront 2-bedroom apartment, exclusive beach, beautiful sunsets... I can't say enough good about it! The management went out of their way to make the experience perfect! The apartment was clean, modern, relaxing, quiet - all with arguably the best views of the island! Add close, safe, WALKING proximity to excellent restaurants, nightlife, watersports, surfing school and so much more that you couldn't ask for a better place to stay on your vacation!
We booked this villa after reading near flawless reviews of White Sands Villas. Unfortunately, expectations fell short and the villa did not live up to our expectations. Our "sea view" was more like a sliver of the ocean -- and the parking gate for the parking would loudly squeak open and closed righ in front of our balcony. The master bathroom was awkward as it did not have a shower, and the second bathroom with shower had pretty abysmal water pressure (almost short of dribbling). As for the location of the villa, we frequenty heard loud music as late as 3 AM from local clubs blasting their "music" as we tried to sleep. One important thing to note about the service is that our room was only cleaned once during our 5 day stay (to be expected with many of these privately owned villas, but something to mention nonetheless). On the upside, the staff was very friendly and and the beach was beautiful. Just watch out as it's very rocky - this was found out the hard way with scraped/bloody knees just a few minutes after our first swim. Overall, this is a solid 3 stars - but very far from the excellent reviews we read prior to booking.
The White Sands is very modern and beautiful. It is situated on the beach, making the views spectacular. The beach has soft white sand and water that is the most intense turquoise I've ever seen. The villa we stayed in was very clean and spacious. We loved the French Doors that lead to the large veranda, and having a few drinks there at the end of the day was perfect. The kitchen was well stocked, which is great to make some meals and save money. There is a small market nearby to purchase food, wine, etc. and the surrounding area has many shops, restaraunts and bars. There is a little beach bar located right next to the villas. This is a perfect place to have a drink, meet locals and other travellers and watch the sunset. Barbados has the most incredible weather, lounging by the pool, enjoying the sun and warm breeze while cooling off with a quick dip is a must. [...] make your stay very accomadating and hospitable. Their friendly, easy going style make you feel incredibly welcome. This was truely an amazing island vacation and we would definetely go back.
Wonderful location with ocenafront view from balcony and several windows. Beach is within a few steps from the villa.
