I didn't expect I would need to buy ice at the "resort" after paying almost two hundred dollars a night, but yes, the ice machines here require you pay. We stayed here a year ago and they appear to have been busy doing some updating. Our room this time is very nice and looks to have been recently refinished! Still... More

We have stayed there twice now and both times we had an awesome time! scheduled events for the kids, drinks on sale all day, so many activities to choose from no need to leave the resort, water slides, clean, always painting keeping hotel fresh. We love this place!

The Sandpiper is in an excellent location. The beach is 20 feet from the hotel, it's on front beach road, and a short drive from the mall. Although the wristbands, parking tags, and security guards around every corner were kind of annoying, I realize that Spring Break is a high volume time for the hotel and they must take their...

We had a great time. The beach is beautiful and kept clean from broken shells and stuff. Had fun doing karaoke. But would have liked more activities. Seemed was less to do this time then last time we stayed. No movie night which was a bummer. But overall fun. Guess i have to stay in summertime to take advantage of... More

We had no cookie sheet to cook things in the oven. But the view was great over looking the beach. Tiki bar had great drinks and prices. Deli advertised room service but we could only call and place a order and pick up someone should change that. Otherwise my family and,I had loads of fun

We usually stay at the Sandpiper due to it being family friendly and further down the beach away from the rowdy crowds. It's about 2 miles from Pier Park where there is shopping and restaurants. The Sandpiper has 2 outdoor pools (1 of which has fun slide), an outdoor jacuzzi, 1 indoor pool, a lazy river, mini golf, and lots... More

The Sandpiper Beacon is such an affordable and incredibly fun resort to spend spring break!!! Loads of people, the party is never ending, and did I mention how affordable it is?! Went for two spring break trips and stayed here. The rooms were comfortable, decently clean. The staff was all very nice and fun too. Right on the beach! Plus... More

We arrived quite late in the evening and it was pouring with rain so perhaps my view is marred however our room was really small, scruffy and smelt damp. The beds are small so were quite uncomfortable for two people to share when it's so warm. Our room had no windows so felt more like a cell. From what I... More
