I arrived a little early before the standard checkin time of 2pm, but Ann and her manager i think at her back was very very helpfull to accomodate me and gave me a room with a view wow! Staffs are very helpful and always greeting me and cheerful. I will go back here with my family next, i stayed here on business so i didnt had the time to relax since this is a working visit, beach and facilities are superb. The bar the restaurant the lobby are superb! Parking spaces the entrance to the hotel is really good! Planning to go back here on May maybe after our trip to Japan next month. Highly recommend here to stay and relax! Again miss Ann daghan salamat.

A great accommodation which is beach front albeit small portion of it and has its own pool. The room was surprisingly big including the bathroom which was huge and had its own bath tub. Breakfast buffet with ample choices. Reliable Wi-Fi and excellent hotel staff. I liked their rooftop bar which has excellent views of Mactan and Cebu City and has a live performer

It's a nice hotel but so many bugs in the ocean Hard to walk at the beach. People always ask you island hoping. They are too OA about foreigners!!!I just like out waitress Lea she's so nice. She took care of us since our day one until our last night in the hotel.

We stayed 2 nights at White Sands Resort . My impressions were very positive with no complaints. Attentive staff and good facilities. Pros: Very good buffet breakfast. Excellent clean rooms with good Sky cable TV. Very good surroundings . Cons: Do not pay extra for a dinner option . There is no buffet in the evening and the only dinner option is to choose a mediocre plate only with no option starter or desert The plate is either meat or fish ,rice and a kind of pickled "orange" despite there being different vegetable combination on the card. Very poor value for money,

We ate at White Sands more than 35 times last year....we just ate there today and were shocked by the amount we were charged for a small can of soda... 120 pesos...we will not return until they charge fairly on their drinks...so sad...so disappointed.

I think this place is trying to save money and milk every penny they can out of there customers. So yes I no there was a typhoon in December but 2 months later they not advertise what the hotel facilities are available. So no tv in the room no internet in room and lucky if you find it any where in the resort. When we checked in there was dirty plates with left over food on in the corridor was there a day later. I asked for house keeping they say government rules cannot clean until we been there 3 days now all the other hotels we stay at do not have these rules As for the swimming pool that had no water in it so how can you use that and the hotel roof top bar that is also closed so mainly you have a room in a over priced resort with no facilities Food and drinks are so expensive in this place

I want to laud the management of cebu whitesands resorts for opening up immediately after the typhoon even though they suffered heavily. Its a big relief for guests like us who were looking for some place to relax our mind and de stress due to the typhoon. Good job and thank you cebu whitesands management and the whole team.

Had bad asthma and allergy attack during my stay as the ac was mouldy, filthy with black dusts so imagine breathing this air in an enclosed space. The rooms smell of either pipes or uncleaned ac. They moved us to another room which was a bit better but was still smelly. The hot water is not hot for tub so if you want to relax in a tub youre gonna have to soak in room temp to cold water. The bed was hard and I had bad hip and back pain from the bed. I got sick during my stay. Not staying again. I usually dont write reviews or give negative comments but the basics of relaxing stay is just not there. If you want to snorel youre gonna have to go far off. The rooms are dated. The place is quiet and green. It feels private. And the toiletries are nice. But wont be staying again.

What I love the most about this resort is the superb customer service. All of the staff are very prompt and polite. Over all, the experience was great even though we were not able to swim at the beach because it was low tide the whole day and swimming time is limited which we understand for everybody's safety. Minimum health protocols were also observed in this new normal.

I had a quiet and relaxing one night stay at Cebu White Sands. The weather was cold and rainy but the ambience of the place is really great. The staff are accommodating and the place is not packed with guests. There are two pools to choose from, the main pool whoch is bigger and the Courtyard pool which is more quiet and smaller. The beach is nice and I spent the night drinking beer by the shore. Overall this is a nice place for a short getaway but its just overshadowed by some of the bigger resorts like Bluewaters and Solea maybe because its not being advertised as much. Hope the spa will open soon because I’m dying to get a massage.
