The staff at White Sands is genuinely friendly and helpful. The drawbacks are their minimum night stays on advance reservations start at a week and their website is so busy, it's kind of difficult to make online bookings. This is a great option for staycationers and anyone who looking for a comfortable beachfront location at a reasonable rate.
Blue Water Beach Club: Located in the south of Bali Hai in the 6306 Gulf. It has a 29 unit hotel-style two-story L-wrap around the pool property. Blue Water has a very good view of the sea. A drawback is that it only offers studio, one-bedroom and apartments (one-bedroom with kitchen). This is a very good choice for AMI visitors who plan to spend the whole day at the beach, but still want to have a comfortable room nearby.
