This was our first visit to Sandpiper. I am familiar with Club Meds in Europe and Morocco, and I this is one is a bit different. There is definitely not the same ambiance, I think perhaps because the American GOs don't quite get the Club Med culture. Having said that--it was definitely a good experience and we will return.
Pros: easy to get to from within the US; convenience of all inclusive; kids were happy and busy the whole time; plenty of comfortable seating around pools and bar; beautiful adult pool; wonderful GO Marissa led the fitness classes; wonderful server Julie helped worked hard and fast to get the outdoor dinner tables cleared quickly.
Cons: the dining room wait staff (Marketplace). Outside of Julie, who is a gem, they were unpleasant, inconsiderate and incompetent. They most certainly do NOT understand Club Med culture. The bathroom of our "renovated" room was definitely not renovated. There was mold in many places around the sink, shower etc.More
