Location and amenities were ideal!
Posted Feb 24, 2016
We wanted a place on the beach, plus heated pools because we weren't certain of the air temps in Feb, and also did not want to HAVE to rent a car to go out to eat and shop. This resort met all those criteria and more. Every room had an ocean view (we were on the top floor of the White Sands main building) and offered a balcony and full kitchen, which was great when we had our transportation stop at the grocery store to pick up beverages, snacks, lunch type food on our way to check in. We did get a mini suite with one bedroom with King bed and a pullout sofa couch for the 4 of us. This would be my only complaint, the room was really too small for the 4 of us (we have 2 teen daughters) & the pull out sofa was small and thin mattress, very uncomfortable for 5 nights. We wish we would have had room with 2 queen beds or something similar, and they were booked after check in. Other than that, great location, within 10-15 minute walk to Times Square for lots of shopping and restaurants and activity, or take trolley for $.75 per person (easy!). Brunch was excellent, but note only 2 free per day, otherwise expensive to pay out of pocket. Loved the free beach loungers & umbrellas, huge nice free beach towels, free paddleboards, kayaks, volleyball, bean bag toss, ping pong...lots of fun for the whole family. Best heated pool was the one furthest to north (and quiet!). Bongos great for snacks, bar food & beverages, never too loud or crazy. Liked the wristband idea too. Safe area.
