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

They moved us like we requested because the view from the 2nd floor was blocked by trees!! Our rooms were side by side. They have... More

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

We have stayed at this hotel several times over the last 10 years. While older, there really is nothing like it. We have stayed at the fancy places as well, and this place by far has more for the kids to do than any other hotel we have tried. My kids request this place, and as their slogan states, this...

My time was nice. Just wish that the beds could have been a little bit bigger and more comfy. And an iron in the room instead of having to rent one would have been great too. Honestly feel like my price for my time there was too much for what it actually was. However, I did enjoy my time there... More
