Little bit of a drive but worth the effort if you are looking for something a little different. Rooms were nice. Food was excellent. Beach to yourself. Check it out if you're in the area. Look on G00gle satellite maps for an overview.

Hi Matt we thank you for taking the long drive to spend some time with us at our hideaway. We know that we have a little haven of peace and rest where you can unplug and reconnect. It was a pleasure to host you. We hope to see you again on your next trip to the Sandpiper.

We had a great time and experience staying here. There is no TV in the rooms but they do have internet. This allowed for intimate conversations and enjoying each other’s company without the distractions of normal life. The room was very nice, clean and comfy. The staff was always excellent, they were welcoming, friendly and did their best to accommodate your requests. The food in the restaurant was excellent as long as your not a picky eater and you just love food lol. The area was so laid back we walk/jog every morning before the sunset while we was there. Even though they indicate to be careful of bug bites, surprisingly I didn’t get bite. I will be recommending and coming here again once we visit Abaco, I love it.

To celebrate my father's 70th birthday we surprised him with a trip to South Abaco. We picked Sandpiper on the recommendation of a family member who had stayed there before and I was not disappointed. We didn't want something in the heart of the tourist area, so if you need to be close to restaurants and grocery stores this is not the place for you. But if you want to experience the true beauty of the Bahamas and just spend quality time with your family, then Sandpiper is be the place for you. Not only did they help coordinate transportion, but chef and the staff accommodated my Dad's dietary needs during our week long stay. They didn't even blink on request for fresh coconut water from the trees on the property. The food was phenomenal, I think my mother is still dreaming about the Pepper Pot dinner. If you want a peaceful place to disconnect and really enjoy your family time, Sandpiper is it. The staff is so warm and helpful, Schooner bay itself is beautiful and it's really like having a home away from home. Marcus and Siren who provided the transportation also took us on two excursions: one to Hope Bay and another to explore the natural blue hole and bird watching. So if you want to leave schooner bay there are options. Dad is already asking when we will be back and we definitely will!

It's very hard to put into words just how special The Sandpiper is. At first we were hesitant because it's in South Abaco, about 30 mins from Marsh Harbour, but we're so glad that we chose it. If you want to experience what makes Abaco special, stay at The Sandpiper. Marcus picked us up from the airport (arranged through the Inn). The Inn is in a lovely community on a harbour, both the community and the Inn have maintained the traditional Bahamian architecture. There are cruiser bicycles available and you can easily ride around the community, including to the beach and the beach cabana. Every morning before breakfast we went for a quick ride around the harbour and saw turtles, yellowfin tuna, and other small fish. There's also a yoga deck with views of the ocean. The staff were always so helpful and sweet. The food easily ranks up there with the best I've ever had anywhere. Highly recommend the Pepperpot with Jasmine Rice. Chef even took the time to come out and tell us about the ingredients and his inspiration behind the dishes. We went on two excursions with Marcus who took us into the national park to see the caves and swim in the Sawmill Blue Hole - This was indescribable! Marcus is a park warden with the Bahamas National Trust and knows his stuff! We also went on a day trip over to Hope Town. Sandpiper has an arrangement with Hope Town Harbour Lodge so we got to use their facilities. I could go on and on. We really had an amazing time and we're already planning to go back!

This hotel is superb! The staff is very welcoming, from the Manager Adgadell to her entire team they are accommodating, friendly and always willing to assist. My wife and I had the opportunity to stay in the Hibiscus Suite; the suite is awesome, very stylish, and spacious. While at this hotel you would relax, and be transformed by its beauty. The hotel is situated near an excellent beach, which is secluded, and you could relax without any disturbance. While at the hotel we also had the opportunity to dine at the hotel’s restaurant. WOW WOW WOW! They have a young talented chef, Chef Higgins. His food was delicious. It was different, fresh, and hot. We did not want to leave The Sandpiper Inn. You would not be disappointed at The Sandpiper Inn, it is worth every penny. We did not want to leave! THIS IS A MUST VISIT!
