We stayed at the hotel for oneweek. The location is excellent but the management needs to sharpen their business. We had preordered dinner for 30USD/night/pp. When we arrived at the hotel they had not composed any "menys" nor did they not undestand that we wantd to have orders for the value of at least 30usd. The chefs varied a lot... More

We spent 2 nights at Bigsand Hotel in September 2007. The hotel sits directly on the beach and the accommodations are apartment style with a patio in front. The rooms are just a few steps from the beach. The beach at Bigsand looks very nice in the pictures. Unfortunately, there is a lot of glass on the beach so you... More

The bigsand hotel is set in a wonderful location and has the potential to be a smashing hotel. The staff were, on the whole, helpful and friendly and the hotel accomodation was nice enough.

I scoured the Internet for a small, quiet, beachfront hotel and Bigsand on Union really seemed to fit the bill. We were not disappointed. Yes, Union (like the other Grenadines) is not easy to get to. We flew from Ottawa (via Toronto) on Air Canada to Barbados. At the Barbados airport we were met by reps from SVG Air who... More

We spent 10 days at Big Sand hotel and loved every moment of it. The hotel is virtually ON the beach, a few steps from the ocean. Union Island is very calm and quiet - old carribean charm. The people are friendly and the climate was perfect for sun lovers like us. Getting there can take some time. We flew... More
