Love this resort! The staff are both friendly and accommodating. Everything one would need is right there on site from grills, sandwich and ice cream shop, laundry, bar, etc. Stayed in room 133 which is located in the oldest section of the hotel, adjacent to the mini-golf area. A little too noisy for my liking and a little too buggy!...

A nice older place to stay that is family oriented. Staff has always been very friendly, and room service is very good. I just wish they had more nights of karaoke available. It gets pretty boring at night for middle age people. Everytime I have been here has been good but could improve on things for older generation.

We love that the staff is friendly, everything is clean, and all the activities! My kids favorites are the foam pit, inflatable slide, and Polynesian dance. We also like the extra amenities like the grills and hammocks! The different pool options, like the slides and lazy river make for fun and different swimming options. Love the easy access to the...

The staff are always wonderfully courteous, friendly, professional & prompt. The customer service is the saving grace for some of the other small problems. I traveled with 2 small dogs it would be helpful if there was a fenced dog run area on site for guest use. LOTS of children there, if you want quiet this is NOT the place...

Chose the Sandpiper because we were traveling with our small dog. We go PCB every year and this was first stay at Sandpiper. This is definitely the place to Go if you are traveling with younger children and/or pets. There is lots to entertain children, however if you wish for a quiet, laid back atmosphere with no children during your...

So, I read the reviews and chose this "resort" (a term used very loosely) based on what I read. As I said in my title, I really think how you rate is dependent on what you are accustom to. For me and my family, this was way below our norm. The location is wonderful however the rooms are very "tired"....

This was our second stay at Sandpiper Beacon Beach Resort. The kids love it, because there are several pools to choose from, activities on site, food, and a gift shop. I like the convenience the resort offers. I wish the resort would update the rooms. I guess my main suggestion would be to update the flooring. By removing the carpet...

We always have a great experience at the Sandpiper Beacon! As usual the room was clean, the bed was comfortable, always a hot shower and the staff was friendly and always helpful. The location is unbeatable. Loved opening our curtains and seeing the ocean each morning and sitting at our patio table and chairs drinking coffee. Loved the Tiki Bar...
