The first room they gave us was a great room for my sister, it had bunk beds for my niece and nephew, but it was 2nd floor, and didn't quite have the view we wanted..They happily moved us to a third floor joining rooms. Pay attention to the activity schedule they give you at check in, because the times on... More

We were just at the Sandpiper last week. We had read a few negative reviews, but our experience was great. Yes it is an older structure hotel on the outside. But our room was updated and clean. I peeked into a few other rooms as the staff was cleaning when we were walking about and all the rooms seemed just... More

Me and 2 adults and seven kids stayed in two rooms. Not the most luxurious but definitely sufficient. We had a blast. Stayed three nights and only left the hotel once to go to Gulf World. The hotel is right on the beach. The beach is kept clean. Tiki bar has pool tables and ping pong. The have a very... More

We have stayed at the resort four times and are in the process of planning a vacation for the summer of 2015. This place has everything: beautiful beaches, nice pools, miniature golf, a fun Tiki bar and many, many more amenities. There are so many things to do at the resort that you don't even need to leave for anything... More

Chose this motel because it was pet friendly. Initial assessment of the room was good. But as our pup began exploring her new surroundings, we found the room was not clean enough for a curious family pet. Under the bed we found dirty clothes, bits of paper, food crumbs and other assorted trash. We had to keep taking things from... More

Hi Joe, We are truly sorry that your stay with us was not perfect. We are currently looking into how your room could possibly have been rented to you in the condition you described. Strict housekeeping standards are something we take very seriously, and this should never have happened. As you referenced, your stay was busier than typical times of... More

This was our 2nd stay at the Sandpiper, & we wouldn't stay anywhere else. We were there from May 10th-May 13th. We love everything about this place. The staff are very friendly & helpful, the oceanfront rooms are beautiful & comfortable, the resort grounds are well kept. We loved the improvements since our last trip, fire pits by the Tiki...

My mom and I just stayed here for a spur of the moment little beach getaway. We were just going to stay one night- but ended up adding an additional night because it was such a beautiful, fun place! It's an older resort- but it's extremely well kept up. Rooms were in excellent condition, all of the staff we encountered... More

This was our third trip to the Sandpiper and I believe that this trip was the best one yet. We traveled in May after spring break and the resort was quiet and peaceful. The Tiki Bar was so much fun at night, the pools were great. I always felt safe because even at night, there were plenty of security guards... More

Stayed here 1 week, May 12-May 19. Older hotel, but they are making efforts to keep it up. So many activities for adults and kids, we entered a cornhole tournament twice and played bingo on the beach. Always have drink specials at the Tiki Bar, we bought wine and margaritas and they came with glasses we could take home. Very... More

We had various people arriving at different times and the front desk was always efficient in getting them checked in with their keys and resort tags. Frig, stove, pots and pans were spotless. I felt very comfortable preparing meals in your kitchens. Sliding glass window was not working well. Maintenance responded quickly to fix it. You seem to be the... More
