We stayed here after reading the good reviews on Trip Advisor. Ignore the bad reviews, they aren't true! We are **VERY picky** about where we'll stay and the Sandpiper did not disappoint! The resort is extremely clean. The rooms are more like modern apartment rather than hotel rooms. If you hate the feel/look of those "typical" hotel rooms, you'll love these rooms! The bed and bedding are VERY comfortable! The kitchens have everything you'll need and there's even a washer and dryer (that's unheard of!)! Yes, the bathroom counter space is small, but the big beautiful kitchen is worth the trade-off. Other reviews mentioned the noise of the air conditioner disturbing them, but it's an air conditioner! What do you expect? At the Sandpiper, you don't even need to pack towels!!! They have them waiting for you at the pool AND at the beach!
Michael P. at the Front Desk was just great! He was friendly and made sure we were happy with our room. (We didn't really like the location of the room we were assigned, so he made arrangements for housekeeping to move our luggage while we hit the beach! THAT is great customer service! Thanks, Michael P.!) If you want to be pampered a little, rent a cabana on the beach. It's fabulous --- towels, drinks, food. What a treat! For breakfast, lunch, or dinner, be sure to visit the Blue Pig. It's worth every penny!
The rates are not inexpensive, but you get WHAT YOU PAY FOR! We especially liked that we could use the pool after checking-out. There's even a beautiful "bathroom" near the pool for changing and showering. We had a great stay and we'll definitely be back! See you in August, Michael!
