This was our 7th stay at The Sandpiper..... and all I can say is that I can think of only a handful of hotels we have stayed at which get anywhere within touching distance of the same standard; The Chewton Glen (Dorset), The Goring (London), The Santa Caterina (Amalfi), The Betsy (Miami).....that's about it! The rooms, the gardens, the restaurant,... More

We arrived in this gem of a place after an easy flight from London. Little did I realise we were about to step into Paradise. Quite literally, the birds sang, the flowers are exotic, the setting magical and the whole place is just sitting there waiting for you to have the best possible time. The staff couldn’t be more service... More

Wonderful staff who are friendly, and go out of their way for you, polite and very professional in everything that they do. We enjoyed... More

Great flavours and lots of interesting options at... More

I have just returned from a week at The Sandpiper with my husband and two grown up children. (A son of 21 and a daughter of 19). We stayed in a two bedroom suite overlooking the beautiful gardens and we had a huge amount of space and plenty of privacy when we wanted it as they were really two separate... More

The Sandpiper itself though is simply a delightful place to stay everything about it is pure class . Friendly staff . Spotlessly kept rooms ( try a suite for 2 if you can ) beautiful... More

this hotel is small and magical. the staff is priceless...they remember your room, give you your newspaper in the morning when going to breakfast... the beach is secluded and cute. is like a boutique hotel with lots of charm. the food is delicious. had a great time. would go back in a heartbeat.

If you were to walk up this coastal area, you'd easily notice all the hotels - not so much The Sandpiper. Walk past the deep blue sun-loungers and you're immediately embraced within the verdant leafy bower of their fabulous gardens. This is no ordinary hotel. Russell (Manager) and his team are trained professionals who will look after your every need,... More

The Sandpiper never fails to dazzle which is why we found ourselves back for a third visit to this beautiful and friendly hotel. The location on the west facing beach at Holetown is stunning and the layout of the hotel's buildings among well tended gardens makes for a chilled out, relaxing spot for a getaway. This year we had a... More
