We stayed here for two nights and we loved our spacious suite. Our bedroom was super comfortable and we had the best sleep ever. Rich breakfast buffet, friendly staff and a perfect location. It’s situated on the beach and very close to the cute town.

A lovely Caribbean feel to this pretty hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the beach and during these difficult times managed to relax swim and enjoy the gorgeous Caribbean Sea. Our room was literally a minutes walk, if that, from the beach area which was perfect. The room was good and always kept clean although I think the bathroom / shower area needed a little attention with a lick of paint there was a bit of water damage there. Air conditioning was a little noisy unfortunately so we asked for a fan which was promptly delivered to our room. I would be careful of location as we were quite near the band area by the restaurant so can be noisy. The restaurant was excellent food fantastic this is the USP of the hotel without a doubt. Harold’s bar also a great spot to dine for lunch. Beach attendants were happy friendly and always took care of us, Raheem and all the beach team deserve a special thank you. All the staff at this hotel were super friendly and went that extra mile. The big question… would we return ? Yes perhaps…. but be aware that this is can be a cliquey hotel with guests that return every Xmas/New year therefore you can feel a little out of place. Maybe later in the year would be better with more couples rather than family reunions! Big thanks to all the staff you do a wonderful job.

Absolute perfection. Amazing setting, location and staff. The beach is like nothing we had experienced before, we can’t wait to come back! You can walk right up to the sister hotel, Coral Reef or down forwards The Tides restaurant. Both are very picturesque walks. The restaurant and bar offer a good selection of food and drink. We had a one bedroom suite which was so spacious and had a kitchen and 2 bathrooms. We will definitely return here when can. The only downside is people reserve sunbeds at stupid o’clock in the morning and don’t use them until late morning/lunchtime. We were surprised that the hotel allowed that. Seems very package holiday in Spain behaviour.

Lovely, lovely hotel. We have just returned from an amazing stay at The Sandpiper. Position is perfect, if you want beach, deck, pool or garden it’s all there. The staff are super friendly, we had an easy check in, great housekeeping and lovely professional service whether in the relaxed parts of the hotel or the restaurant. Big congrats to the breakfast staff who have to serve everyone singly instead of buffet. Difficult times for all and they do really well. If there ONE thing, it’s the music in Harold’s Bar… it’s absolutely dire with the same songs (all covers ) on repeat. It might seem trivial but when you hear the same 40 or 50 songs over and over day after day it’s horrible. Such a lazy way to play music in these times when you can just fire up Spotify and play original music to suit the time of day. All in all though, the sandpiper delivered on everything else.
