Great for families that want to be on the beach. A little old, but very clean. Lots to do for kids. One peave is the amount of smoking that goes on especially around the tiki bar where a lot of kids congregate. No air circulation. Even if it was not allowed during the day, that would be good. Been there... More

Really enjoyed our stay I feel they over charge for the pet fee and extra vichel but the service was great and it was the perfect time to go all the kids were in school and the snowbirds haven't arrived yet! It was a time for the big kids to play! We are looking forward to our next trip.

This is a hotel right on the beach. They didn't have many rooms left when we got there, so our room didn't seem to be in the best shape. Great beach view however, and if you are going to spend less time in the room, then it's not so bad. Plenty to do even if you won't be at the... More

Room we had reserved wasn't available. However management jumped through hoops to put us in a room that we were comfortable in. Everything was there that you needed. You really didn't have to leave for anything. Tiki Bar kept you entertained every night, with bar specials and entertainment. Truly enjoyed our time there and met some wonderful people while we...

This was a great place for the price. The furniture may be dated a bit but it was a great location on the beach with activities throughout the day for families. The weather was great our entire visit. The staff was friendly and helpful.

This was our first visit to the panhandle. We were at the Sandpiper during the second week of August, and although we had terrible weather much if the time, there was plenty to do and see here. The rooms are very outdated, but quite clean. We asked to see a more updated room after our original room was unsatisfactory, and... More

This place is just OK. Our room was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful and that was about it. This is a resort that is seriously outdated,so much so that they used vented outdoor soffit and cheap outdoor lights in the minimal kitchen. Most resorts/hotels have a iron, ironing board and hair dryers in the room. This resort... More

We really enjoyed our stay. You don't even have to leave this place. We loved standing on the balcony being right over the tiki bar. Restaurant right across the street and a grilll restaurant on premises on the beach. The Tiki Bar needs to have karaoke every night lol!!!
