Our second stay at The Sandpiper and just as good as ever. The hotel has many clients returning year after year - obviously a credit to them. Nothing too much trouble and all dealt with in a very professional yet friendly manner. Room superb - garden room - but have stayed in a suite which is extra special. Right on...

We were at the Sandpiper for nearly two weeks and had very much been looking forward to it based both on previous reviews and also feedback from friends who had stayed at the hotel. I will start with the positive. The bed was very comfortable and as such we slept very well. The rooms vary depending on what you go...

In answer to the reviewer who liked the hote, but felt it is more geared towards regulars and a bit clique orientated for people who return year after year!Well I am going to be honest here. Myself and husband stayed here for a week and loved it. Yes there were large groups of guests, who seemed to group together, at...

Our trip luckily got better, as did our perceptions of the hotel. We were shown to Garden Room 10 (big tip, ask to not have room 10,11,16 or 17) I was disappointed with the basic room, but prepared to live with it for a week. That was until we realised we were situated near to the dining area, had no...

Stayed for 3 days prior to a cruise. From the welcome to departure you are made to feel special. The rooms are excellent as is the service ,and the food is fab too. If you just want to relax in a quiet luxurious place then the sandpiper gets our vote. If you want a little night life go out of...

\Our week at the Sandpiper was perfect. I checked this hotel on Trip Adviser and liked all aspects. The service was exceptional, the food was out of this world and the room beautiful. We stayed one week in a Garden Room, with breakfast and dinner included. On arrival we were taken to our room by the duty manager, who took...

I was there on business in November and straight away, was blown away by the professional but friendly service, the beautifully decorated rooms and the delicious food. I loved my room (#1) and I checked out a tree top suite but still preferred my humble 1 bedroom suite. I thought they got the décor and furnishings just right (not too...

We paid our second visit to the Sandpiper for 10 nights at the beginning of December. We received a welcome back card and a box of fruit in our room. It was lovely to see the same staff in the restaurant and the watersports area. We had a ground floor room this time but would have preferred one upstairs for...

We have just come back from a week at the Sandpiper and our stay did exactly what we wanted it to do; we departed from our Caribbean holiday healthier, more relaxed and happier than when we arrived on New Year’s Eve. The hotel is casual but nobody had warned us that the New Year’s Eve dinner is black tie. Nevertheless...

Being right at the end of the season was I think a blessing in disguise, as the hotel was not crowded, the small beach and deck all peaceful - not sure i'd like to see it busy. The rooms are beautiful - go for the upper floor, we were in room 41 and it was great, no one walking past...
