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

My wife and I have just enjoyed another perfect week at the Sandpiper. This was our fifth visit in as many years and has become our preferred winter-sun holiday destination. Every year things seem to get better and this year, the notable improvement was the food. It was good before, with superb high class dining every night, but this year,... More

A fantastic hotel with many amenities; perfect for families and couples alike. Stayed with my family of 4 for 10 days which I felt was ample to thoroughly enjoy everything the Sandpiper offers. Only complaint would be that the beach was slightly cramped and I found the menu repetitive (we payed half board and only ate at the hotel) but... More

We spent a week at the Sandpiper and loved every minute of it. As in my title I would like to praise all the staff. I don't want mention anyone in particular as they were all great and a total credit to the Sandpipers management. Relaxing, calming atmosphere is created here and finished of nicely by the fantastic food. Five... More

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
