This was our third stay at The Sandpiper Condominium in Port Aransas. I am rating our stay only a three this time due to noise from a condo renovation going on below our condo unit. Our unit was unit 501, a three bedroom, two and a half bath updated condo unit. This condo has a nice kitchen with granite counter tops and the condo furnishings are nice.There are flat screen tv's in the living room and bedrooms. The view is beautiful from the balcony toward the ocean and there' s a view from the two back bedrooms of the pool area that is pretty. There is plenty of outdoor seating on this unit's balconies.
The disappointment this time was with the construction noise during the day. Very loud and we were unable to nap in the afternoon. We stayed two nights and our bill was $770.00 for ths stay. I wished we had been notified prior to our check in about the construction, and also wished we had been offered another unit away from the construction. Upon checkout, I spoke with the Sandpiper staff and voiced these sentiments. They sent us an e -mail offering us a 20 percent discount on a future stay at the Sandpiper for not notifying us that construction would be going on in the unit below ours during our stay. While this gesture is appreciated, the really does not address the $770.00 we spent on this stay that was not up to The Sandpiper's usual standards.
Other than this issue, The Sandpiper is one of the cleanest and nicest properties with gorgeous views of the beach in Port Aransas. I would recommend this property but ask when checking in if any renovations are going on near your condo. If not, I think you will have a very enjoyable stay!
