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...

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

Due to some cruising, my wife and I had not visited the Sandpiper hotel since the 90's. Please to report it is still as great as we last remember. rooms are large, clean and well appointed. 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

Have come here the past 2 summers with my wife and daughter and enjoyed every moment from the start to finish. All the staff are genuinely nice people who are never short of a smile and helping you feel at home whilst away. The food whether it be breakfast/lunch/dinner is simply excellent. 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

One of the best luxury hotels you will ever find . Beach front location within easy walking distance of Holetown for shopping bars and restaurants. 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
