We come to Sandpiper Beacon the same week almost every year! Our room by the pool is wonderful, especially since I'm handicapped. Our unit is always spotless and the service is excellent! We have met some very good friends who now also come the same week as we do! Great Time and Great Accommodations and Great People! There are activities... More

Folks this is not the Ritz, but it is a nice hotel right on the beach. Tiki bar was fun. The best thing here is the beach and really the reason to select this property. It was clean, furniture could use an update. Ocean view is worth the extra money. We liked the ground floor as it had a table... More

My grandson and I stayed 3 days and loved every minute. The pools were a little too deep for him this year but we hope to come again next year. I really liked that we had basically everything right there and did not have to leave unless we wanted to go shopping. The staff was very friendly and the room... More

Rooms need a closet and should be equipped with coffee. This is the first resort I have been at that does not supply coffee in the room. The towels are also very small compared to what I'm accustomed to at other resorts. Also, information on the activities and room and the different amentities needs to advertised more. Most resorts have... More

I asked for a partial view room, never mentioning disabilities, we were on the 3rd floor. It did have an excellent view, and an elevator for disability convenience . The games for children and adults were great and numerous. The only problem we had was, that one vacation family tried to run the entire events while we were there. We... More
