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

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

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
