We stayed for 3 nights at the Sandpiper on the way to Mustique. The rooms and suites are spread around the garden which would be worth a visit in its own right - a wonderful combination of architectural shapes and flowering shrubs and trees. Our suite was very spacious and included a fully equipped galley kitchen - useful for making snack lunches. The staff are universally cheerful, polite and fully professional. The management here must be seriously good. What comes as an unexpected bonus is the extremely high standard of cooking: every single dish at dinner was a winner with unusual combinations such as carrot and ginger soup. The chefs are versatile so that veal Milanese is cooked with the same skill as a West Indian curry At breakfast there is a vast array of buffet dishes and ( a great blessing) an industrial toaster. I should also mention the delightful interior of the dining room which at night is light by lantern type illumination and looks very exotic. The beach is not very long but ample for the number of guests.
This is not a place to go an all action holiday but otherwise it would be hard to do better.
