We had not been on a family vacation in 5 years and this place made it a very memorable time. We will book again as soon as we are able. The staff was VERY nice and helpful. The view was amazing, the grills were nice to enjoy a great outdoor cookout on the beach that the whole family loved.Thanks David...

My family and I had a great vacation recently at the Sandpiper and would recommend anyone to stay there. Everything is right there on site, from the little gift shop that has the little necessities that you might have forgotten to the Tiki Bar, that has entertainment for all ages. Can't wait for next fall to come back.

Great place for the whole family. You could enjoy your entire vacation without having to leave the Sandpiper Beacon. Indoor and outdoor pools along with hot tub are great for relaxing after a long day on the beach. The Tiki Bar has a kid friendly atmosphere with plenty for adults to do as well. The view from the rooms is...

We had a wonderful time at Sandpiper Beacon, we've stayed here many times and will definitely be back! This was my 2 year old sons first visit and he did not want to leave. The playground and all the kids activities are great. We are already planning our next trip. We love the fall and winter because it's less crowded.

Although it is an older property, you get a lot for your money. Basic room had two double beds, flat screen tv, dresser and nightstand, mini fridge, microwave, strong shower head, balcony with two chairs. We took a chance on the place and were pleasantly surprised. The room we had was recently refurbished, smelled clean, new carpeting, good working a/c...
