I stayed at Sandpiper Beacon resort in Panama from July 18th-July 25th. Overall our stay was very nice. It was right along the beach, they had an inside pool with a lazy river. Two outdoor pools. They had a tiki bar, and a little deli outside. We didn't have a good view, our room was stuck in the corner and... More

My husband, parents, and two kids stayed in a condo at Sandpiper Beacon. The rooms were cleaning and very spacious. The staff were friendly and helpful. I love all the extras they provide - the shows, the beach activities, and on-site restaurants. The Tiki Bar area was our favorite place. The resort is in a great location. Ideal for families...

My daughter and I have been staying here for 14 years. This year we brough our new family and they LOVED, LOVED, LOVED it. Yes there is fancier. But, it's the beach, you don't need fancy. Sliding into a swimming pool, shooting pool, playing ping pong, cooking out, laying in the sun, singing and watching Karoke and playing in a... More

We loved the sandpiper. Kids had an awesome time. Staff were great. Tiki bar was the bomb. Food was great and all the stuff that went alone with staying there. We will defiantly be staying their again. You have got to try out the ice cream shop and make sure you go in the gift shop. Make sure you try... More

Hotel Staff was very friendly and helpful. Never a dull moment. Fun activities constantly. The Polynesian show years before was better than this one. It was still entertaining though. Love this place, there is something for everyone. Will definitely keep going back yearly.

Was good hotel for kids lots of activities but they need a lot of renovations they are letting it run down especially the outside of building, no air in elevators, and needs good cleaning everywhere. Rooms need updated too but at least the room was clean. But loved the activities and relaxing atmosphere by the beach!!!

Overall a very good experience. It was wonderful to walk out to the beach any time you wanted. It was a little disappointing that the chairs and umbrellas have to be rented for $30 per day. The wi-fi never worked for any of our devices and the staff wasn't very helpful in trying to resolve the issue. The rooms are... More

This was my 3rd time staying @ Sandpiper and will probably be my last. Good: They have plenty of things to do for kids. You do not have to walk three miles to get to the ocean from the facility. I also like the conveniently located deli, ice cream shop, and bar. Bad: This place needs major renovations. My best... More
