I was lucky enough to return to Sandy Lane in May this year and i think it was better than the time before if that is possible! From the moment i stepped out of the car from the airport and was greeted with "Welcome Home" we were treated to the most fabulous experience. Understated elegance - I love it.

This is definitely the most beautiful spa property I have visited . Open marble vistas and sprawling manicured grounds . The manager was very knowledgeable and had such a nice disposition . Loved the little tiny touches , and you must visit the room with the amethyst crystals . Simply beautiful .......

Having read the other reviews, I anticipated the arrival experience but didn't expect how grateful I would be for the fast track immigration. Looking at queues hundreds deep it was wonderful to go straight through after a long flight with the Sandy Lane representatives at Grantley Adams airport. We were warmly greeted at the hotel with welcome drinks and promptly...

This is one of the world's great hotels, but not in the sense of the Savoy or George V... The location on its own bay with enough land for three golf courses stretching back behind the hotel is wonderful. You are, however, removed from any but the most general sense of being on Barbados. And most of the guests are...

I am surprised Sandy Lane has not made the list for Trip Advisors best hotels. The service and amenities are fabulous! The food is incredible. The ease to pretty much do anything on or off the property is refreshing as the concierge and the staff treat you like royalty whether you are a first time visitor or a returning guest....

A truly top class property for Barbados. Have visited before but not stayed until this year. The manager, Randy, is ex Cobblers Cove (when it was good) and before that he was Sandals. He understands what wealth wants and he makes sure the wealthy are happy. It was clear to me that they were running on a skeleton kitchen crew...

We returned to Barbados as we love the people and the climate and decided to give Sandy Lane a second visit. Maybe as it was a different time of the year (May not Feb) things seemed much better or maybe as we were in a 2 bed suite rather than one room. We did get turn down this time when...

Stayed for May Half Term with wife and kids aged 9 and 7. Everything was perfect starting with the priority pass through immigration to our waiting car.
