If you want to completely relax and enjoy being spoilt by the ever attentive, friendly staff who always have a smile and a welcome this is definitely the place to stay. A beautiful picture of colour awaits you from the many plants which give guests privacy and the views of the sea from your extremely comfortable sunbeds where you can... More

We don't tend to go back to the same place for a holiday as we like to experience different places and people. However, the Sandpiper has become an exception to that as we recently returned from an amazing two weeks at the beginning of April with our two kids (12 and 15). This time was better than the last and... More

This hotel is perfection. No there is not a tv in the bedroom and there is not tea/coffee making facilities - you are not staying in a large resort hotel - if you want to watch Eastender's and Coronation Street whilst on holiday you are in the wrong place. It is sophisticated and stylish and the owners, I would assume,... More

Shame, as it is a lovely, relatively small hotel. The staff make it special so hopefully they will all come back to the new hotel. my only downside was the barbecue night when the food, although plentiful, was bland and overcooked, a bit like a 3 star buffet really. That aside everything else was top class (OK the beach was... More

My husband has been fortunate to be able to teach tennis at The Sandpiper for several years. The quality of the guests is unsurpassed. Not only is the tennis well attended, but the resort is 5 star. The rooms are beautiful and immaculate, the food is beyond 5 star and the service is top notch. You feel like you are... More

My husband and I recently returned from a trip to Barbados and a stay at the Sandpiper. The service was excellent. The staff all know your name by the second day and are very pleasant and helpful. Even though we had rented a car, we were pleased to find they have a van which will take you into Bridgetown on... More

Wonderful hotel. Great location - Holetown has lots of restaurants, a cinema, shopping... if that's your thing. The grounds of the hotel are an absolute joy. And the staff are the best in the world. Would like to single out Michelle from the dining room, Victor from the beach and Terry-Anne from reception. Also, the hotel greatly benefits from the... More

We had visited The Sandpiper before, and were not disappointed this time. Everything was so as it should be, friendly efficient staff whenever you needed anything. It make a vacation fly by when every little thing is taken care of.

This was our third visit to The Sandpiper, but our umpteenth visit to Barbados over many years. We found it just as fabulous as previous visits, which was just as well, as we had decided to stay for a month this year! Our usual garden room was waiting ( not supplying the number, otherwise you will all want to stay... More

We had previously stayed at the Fairmont a couple of times but fancied a change & a few people recommended we try the Sandpiper. Generally we wish we hadn't bothered - under no circumstances could this be classed as a world class small hotel. The good points first: Gardens & general areas are well maintained & of a high standard... More

Further to your review, we were very disappointed and regret that we did not fulfill your expectations for your holiday. Our beach was affected by some recent rough seas which can unfortunately affect the beach for a few weeks at a time and is obviously out of our control, but we do understand that you thought that the beach was...
