Just returned from a ten day stay at The Sandpiper and it exceeded our very high expectations. It is wonderful and has the feel of a private members club about it. This small but perfectly formed hotel is set in very beautiful gardens and everything about it is luxurious and classy. The unbelievably high number of return guests ( in some cases 30+ years!) bear testimony to the Sandpiper itself. Located on the beach, our upgraded suite (many thanks to the management for this!) had a large terrace and small kitchen -very welcome additions. I have a bad back and the team bent over backwards to provide me with soft mattress toppers for my bed. (Btw, the bed linen is worth mentioning - gorgeously soft and extremely high quality). Food at this hotel is outstandingly good. There was a superb selection at breakfast (the only thing missing which we would have loved was freshly squeezed orange juice in the mornings). Dinners were superb -local cuisine elevated to perfection by a brilliant chef.
What makes this hotel above all else though, is the staff. Each and every one is so charming,helpful..... and always genuinely happy! The management team whom we met - Wayne and Russell,give such a very personal touch so that each guest feels special. We visited the sister hotel virtually next door - The Coral Reef and were very taken with this too. We shall definitely be returning and are already looking into flights for next year!

The hotel is set in beautiful gardens right beside a lovely beach and literally 5 minutes walk into the small town of Holetown, where there is a variety of restaurants, large supermarket, small shops etc. All the hotel staff were very attentive and friendly and the food was wonderful. We had a garden room on the old side of the hotel, which was lovely and very well appointed. Our only comment is that having requested a quiet room when we booked we were a bit annoyed at being given a room right beside the 'bandstand', which is set at the side of the restaurant. This meant that we had no choice but to stay awake till 10.30 pm every evening because of the musical entertainment provided. So if you are someone who likes to go to bed early, or just spend quiet time in your room in the evening, then make sure you request a room as far away from the 'bandstand' as possible. People who have been to the hotel more than once told us they like to have rooms on the new side of the hotel, which is well away from the restaurant area and therefore quieter. Apart from that we had a wonderful holiday and loved the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the 'bandstand', eg in the new side of the hotel.

Loved this hotel, from beginning to end. It’s expensive and so is the restaurant (but then the Caribbean seems to be expensive overall), but absolutely worth every cent. We had room 20, near the beach – comfortable, clean, quiet, well-fitted and well-maintained. Grounds are gorgeous. Service from everyone – literally everyone we came across – was excellent, attentive without ever being intrusive. Food at the restaurant was delicious – breakfast, lunch and dinner. Ron and Christian who took us snorkelling were great. Olinda and the others at reception made us feel welcome and important at every turn.
Nice location in Holetown with shops and restaurants within easy walking distance.
Would go back in heartbeat, and hope very much to be able to do so.

The sandpiper is a family run hotel in a prime location right in the heart of Holetown, very close to the Lime Grove shopping arcades. It has an excellent restaurant with plenty of friendly staff on hand 24/7. There are two pools & its own beach area. Nightly entertainment is very good & the place is kept spotless. This is the second time we have been here & it hasn't dropped it's standards since the first time.

We started with sunset cocktails at Harolds Bar on the beach (a Harolds Smile & a Classic Rum Punch). A lovely view and delightful drinks in a relaxed beachfront area.
Went into the other bar, adjacent to the restaurant, and awaited an escort to our table. Cushy rattan chairs, crisp cotton pillows, beach elegant decor. Our order was taken there after which we were seated in the formal dining room. White linens, ceiling fans, centerpieces of candlelight with sea glass on sand in a glass hurricane lantern.
Our server, Tina, was extremely attentive, gracious and hospitable significantly adding to the pleasure of this outstanding meal. The bread basket selection included yummy sundried tomato bread and great flat bread. The food was EXCEPTIONAL!!! Fish, meats, duck... a wonderful selection from which to choose. We selected Ceviche with scallops, entrees of king fish, with fantastic side of spinach, truffle mac n cheese and asparagus. Beautiful presentation, excellent sauces, all tasted as good as they looked! This meal was on of the top 2 in Barbados. (We also love The Fish Pot, Lone Star and Cliff Beach Club.)
This is a formal restaurant, the staff is gracious and most professional. Live music included male and female vocalists who the guests truly enjoyed. Really lovely evening, world class service and exceptional food! We will absolutely return!!
