We stayed in unit # 8215 for a long weekend in February 2014. This unit is a studio with a murphy bed and sleeper sofa. It was a great space for couples and possibly a family of four with younger children. I was not a fan of the murphy bed-uncomfortable, my husband had no complaints. The kitchen is stocked with...

We stayed at Sandpiper Cove in June 2013. It was perfect for our little family. We stayed in #209. It was greater than we expected for the price. The only complaint we had is the air conditioning didn't seem to be cooling like we are used to (60 degrees) but it was comfortable enough. We will come back soon!!

The units are on the beach and across from the beach with private beach access. If you wait until after Labor Day you get discounts of 40 percent. This is a low rise condo with two story units, well maintained and quite spread out with 24/7 security at the gate. Many have Wi-Fi at no extra cost. This unit was... More

The same thing happened to us as what happened to PL below. We reserved a particular unit for a particular reason - we like it. Booked it months in advance. I told them that fact when I reserved. When we arrived to check in, they gave us the paperwork for a totally different unit. I said "there must be a... More

We apologize that you were not notified that your condo was no longer on our program before you arrived at our office. Unfortunately, this type of situation does arise on occasion, as condos are sold or owners decide not to rent their condo for vacations rentals ect..We try at all costs to not relocate anyone. This is just one of... More

Nice accommodation for 2. Close walk to beach (across street) and pool. Staff very accommodating. Great hotdogs at beachside bar across the street. Also recommend Callahans restaurant - in the target mall nearby. Would stay again if in the area

Our unit was unavailable b/c of the AC unit being bad. Management did not call to tell us that they switched us to another unit. We found out about the reassignment when we checked in at 6:30pm (which is after hours, so no recourse with mgt at that point). We would have definitely cancelled if we had been given proper... More

We chose Sandpiper Cove based on a personal recommendation by a friend, and after staying here, I would highly recommend this place to anyone. We booked too late to get a beachfront unit, and even though our unit was across the street, it was a very easy walk to the beach. Because Sandpiper Cove is not a high rise unit,... More

We stayed in 1044 on the canal and it was everything we had seen online. We did a lot of research on this place and it was just perfect. Check in was a little bit long but we were fine going to the beach and enjoying the water. The front desk called and left a message when our condo was... More

My family and I traveled here for our annual vacation and it was wonderful. Our condo in particular was great and sandpiper cove as a whole was excellent. We only swam in one of the 5 pools but it was never over crowded, and the private beach was very nice and clean. We would definitely stay again
