You'll be hard pushed to find fault with this hotel, the rooms are beautiful and kept immaculately clean daily, the food is fabulous from breakfast to dinner and the staff are all friendly and very helpful.

We made a family return to this beautiful hotel after staying as a couple many years ago. Everything was perfect and the staff in particular were quite incredible. This level of service is rare and deserves special praise. We have stayed in some great hotels in our time but this one is quite lovely.

My husband and I have just returned from what can only be described as one of the best holidays ever. Having been many times to Barbados over seventeen years we have stayed in a number of good hotels on the Island. The Sandpiper is in a class of its own- excellent accommodation (we stayed in suite 3) kept spotlessly clean... More

We stayed at the Sandpiper over our February break. We were staying at a nearby resort but had to move as our house flooded - it was a blessing in disguise! The night manager so very kindly organised accommodation for myself, my husband and our 4 children at very short notice. The staff from the minute were just so helpful,friendly... More

We found ourselves in the unfortunate position of having to move out of our rental home due to an intruder overnight. Thankfully, for the last 4 nights of our holiday, across the road in Hole Town, The Sandpiper Hotel came to our rescue, and had a 1 bedroom suite available. It was stunning, and more than made up for our... More

Returning to the Sandpiper is just like visiting old friends - amongst both the staff and the other guests. It's all just to comfortable and divine and if it wasn't for her ladyship I wouldn't set foot outside of the hotel grounds (except for regular visits in and on the sea). Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. Just one small point, Wayne, it's... More

This was our second visit to the Sandpiper in the last 18 months and a visit that we didn't regret. This hotel is first class and we love everything about it. We initially stayed in a one bedroomed suite which had lovely sea views from the room and the wooden verandah. It also had a well equipped kitchenette which was... More

Three generations visited over April school vacation. Staff could not have been more attentive. Everyone went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed out stay. Food was delicious and enjoyed by all (even the picky eaters). Rooms were lovely. We are already planning a return trip. Thank you Sandpiper for a memorable vacation.

Firstly I have to say that this hotel is definitely 5 star, they have the good rooms, with stone wall features. The beach bar, water sports, great restaurant, swimming pool. Its smaller than the others, and for this you get the cosy feel where they give you one to one service and make you feel at home. At the bar... More

We stayed with family in a 2 bedroom suite very close to the beach. The rooms were large and comfortable with a big enclosed verandah with plenty of outdoor furniture. The beach is small and crowded and we found the watersports people reluctant to provide the 'free' watersports. The resort is directly on the main road and it is a... More
