“Second Stay and Will Do a Third”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

This is our second stay at The Sandpiper and have no regrets.. The apartments are clean, well tended, and fairly priced. The staff is friendly and helpful. The apartments are good size for our family (4 people) and have stayed with the in-laws as well (totalling 6) and have never felt like we were tripping over people. Though the mattress on the futon was a bit tired now and could stand to be replaced soon. The kitchen is a good size and there is a market down the road (3-4 bus stops) or a larger grocery store in Hamilton near the bus station across from the church (The Marketplace, I believe)....we made a point to picking up a single bag of items to take back to prepare at the apartment on each trip thru Hamilton. The grounds are pretty and well kept and the pool is a nice break if the surf is up. With the recent addition of The Swizzle within 30 yards, it makes the facility even better for our stay adding a place to eat out if we don't feel like cooking. The location is right on the South Road so it can be a little loud at times and a bit unnerving crossing the street during busy times. It is on Bus Route 7 so the buses run fairly frequently but don't bother going anywhere on Sunday as it will seem like an eternity to catch the bus. Parking for scooters is readily available. While Elbow Bay and Horseshoe Bay is just a couple bus stops away, there is a couple beaches within an easy walk....just ask the staff for directions, they'll be glad to assist. If your plans for Bermuda revolve around going to the beach(es), like ours do....this is a great place to stay. If you want to constantly be on the move going to other points (dockyards, caves, hamiliton, st george, etc), just be prepared to spend time waiting on the bus and the bus time too.....or rent a scooter. We will definitely be staying here again.

Room Tip: If you want a quieter night, we a room in the middle or inside of the complex (ie, not facing South...

The Sandpiper is a small lot of 9 apartments.There are studio apartments then there are bedroom apartments.They all have a name along with a number.ie.....room 6 is 'Exstacy' or room 2 is 'Twiddle Dee'.There were just one other couple staying here when we arrived therefore we practically had the place to ourselves.There is an outside bar-b-q propane gas grill for your use then inside the apartments are the kitchenettes which have tables refrigerator,cooking range top/oven the living area has television couch, air conditioning with overhead fan.The rooms are with two double beds.A very clean place, the manager 'Khawanda' was very friendly tending to any of our needs ,the housemaid was a verykind elderly women who was so cheerful when we saw her. The pool is right outside the apartment with a soda machine as well by poolside.You can purchase bus tokens are arrange a tour or rent a scooter anyone in the office will help the arrangements.The apartments are right on South Shore Road in Warwick.The Swizzle Inn Restaurant is right up the street along with a gas station/mini market about 200 metres down the road as well.Horseshoe Bay is about 4 Km away. You can't go wrong with this place for the price as well.My only gripe was there are a lot of beetles from outside that can get into your room if you don't close the front door,yet that's Mother Nature'.The office closes up at 8pm so notify management if you're late arrival.Recommend

I've been to Bermuda many, many times. Last time, several friends and family members joined me for a milestone birthday. We took six or seven of the apartments at The Sandpiper. We all loved that these units and the pool are kept spotlessly clean.

This is not a full-service hotel but rather a Housekeeping apartment. We each had full one-bedroom units with small, but serviceable kitchens and rather large bathrooms.

The location is great as one can walk to Warwick Long Bay - 10 minutes away. There's another beach closer (entrance just past the gas station) that is quite nice and largely uninhabited but requires a walk up steep stairs when leaving.

The Sandpiper is right on South Shore road which is helpful to those who want to use the bus or van service. I always rent a scooter and there is ample parking at the rear. A short ride or longer walk (15-25 minutes?) puts you at the entrance to Horseshoe Bay, Tio Pepe and the Swizzle Inn on South Shore. Riding into town takes about 15-20 minutes in taxi/on scooter.

Staying in a housekeeping apartment makes Bermuda more affordable. The Sandpiper is restful, quiet and clean. We had no problems and were told that the complaints from previous years were the result of one vandal who was subsequently arrested. All my guests said they'd recommend the Sandpiper to friends.

Go with an open mind and the knowledge that your wallet is a little fatter and you'll enjoy your stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the top floor facing South Shore

Garden has gorgeous fragrant frangipani tree and inviting pool. Well kept. Big low budget room on very busy road. Loud air conditioner drowned road sounds. Very small ants in bath. Staff nicely provided aerosal spray. More like real island beach rental than fancy hotels. Suggest OK sleep after beaches/sightseeing/dinner elsewhere. Bus connection very convenient, just watch schedule times.

The Sandpiper was extremely disappointing. We refused to stay in the first apartment we were offered, it was dark, dingy and needed complete refurbishment. The second was somewhat better but still very tired. We were due to stay a week but checked out after four nights. The view from the lounge/kitchen was of what appeared to be a run down building. The fridge door was rusty and the bedroom furniture was badly marked. The room sizes were adequate however.

The desk staff were at opposite ends of the spectrum. One was helpful and charming, the other was surly. The apartments were near to the Swizzle Inn and South Road bus stops.

DO NOT GO THERE>
Their description is not true. The beach is awful and not as near as they say.
The accomodation is filthy.
The proprietor rude and frightening.
We left shortly after we arrived as the place was unacceptable but were penalised for two nights at 155 per night before we were allowed to leave by taxi which we had to rely on her to get for us.

We stayed at Sandpiper for 4 nights last May for a last-minute getaway. This was a wonderful bargain for Bermuda, especially in high-season when other hotels were 2-3 times the price -- rooms were clean, basic, not fancy, comfortable bed, kitchen was adequate (we only used it for breakfast). We had no security problems. Unlike a hotel, you're on your own, with no services other than housekeeping, which was fine. We were on the second floor with a little balcony overlooking the pool. The property drops down a bit from the road, so the front, where the pool is located, is more private, but the second floor rooms are almost level with South Shore Rd.. Next time we'll definitely stay in one of the rooms at the back, as the road noise at night was very loud and busy with motorcycles and big trucks doing night transporting! The pool was small but very refreshing. The bus stop was very close (and yes, a bus/ferry pass is the way to go!), and the Swizzle Inn II was only a few buildings away! It was a bit of a hike to the beach -- 3 minute walk down the road, then down a pathway, then down a steep and very long stairway to a long deserted beach! (going down was way easier than coming back up!) This was a different experience from our other stays in Bermuda, but a good inexpensive way to be there. We would certainly consider staying there again, and recommend it to others wanting a budget no-frills option for this amazing, beautiful, friendly island!
