8 days in Paradise
Reviewed 18 hours ago

We recently spent 8 spectacular nights at The Sandpiper in Barbados. It's been approx. 5 years since our last stay-which we were quickly reminded that will never happen again! We had 8 glorious days of weather.
The Sandpiper's enhancements since our last stay were remarkable. Harold's Bar and the new pool were fantastic and a great addition to the property. It was great to see all of our friends from previous visits, Harold, Mervin, Colin, Olinda, and the entire bar and pool staff. Everyone made us feel so very welcome. We have lost count if this was our 11th or 12th stay but after spending yet another 8 days in Suite #1, we have decided that indeed that is the best room on the property.
Service on all levels was outstanding and personalized. Russell many thanks to you for making our stay incredibly enjoyable.
This is by far our most favorite vacation destination anywhere in the world.
Many thanks to the entire staff at The Sandpiper. See you next year.

Fabulous relaxing holiday in a beautiful place, first class in everyway
Reviewed 1 week ago

We stayed for a week early June and had the most fabulous and relaxing holiday ever, the weather was perfect, the hotel was wonderful with beautiful surrounding gardens, peaceful, relaxing with superb food and drink and the staff and service were second to none. Great location close to lots of superb restaurants if you like to eat out , that said the food at the hotel was brilliant so if you didn't want to go out you certainly didn't need to. We will be back!

Not what we expected
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We were sold 5 star but we did not feel we received this in many respects. Whilst the gardens and rooms were lovely well fitted and comfortable the hotel was let down by noisy air conditioning culminating in us having to change room. I had read about this on-line beforehand but thought it would have been fixed unfortunately the units are old and out of date. We requested a seaview room which we did not get, this was probably due to there being so few of them. The beach area is more cramped than we anticipated but maybe this was down to us not researching our choice well enough beforehand. That said the staff were friendly and attentive certainly Yvette Head of Housekeeping tried her best for us with regards to the air conditioning and came to check on us which I was very impressed with. The sorbet on the beach is a nice touch as is the water. There are excellent restaurants nearby.

The test of an excellent holiday....would you go back and would you change anything? The answers are simple for the Sandpiper. Yes and no. We are already discussing our return visit and we would change a thing.

We were treated to the managers reception on our first evening and it was the perfect start. A wonderful cocktail reception and sumptuous buffet, with roast beef and lamb that would rival any of the London clubs. Breakfast was an amazing buffet of fresh fruits and traditional cooked breakfasts. Whilst on the beach we were treated to fresh water and at 11am we received a welcome sorbet. Dinner was excellent and certainly met the standards of any five star establishment.

Whilst we spent most of the time on the beach, there were two lovely swimming pools to retire to after too much sun. The beach staff were great and attentive, nothing was too much trouble and a constant flow of cocktails was maintained.

I particularly liked the hotels sailing boat, which I took out several times and my partner enjoyed the gym. It was also great having a tennis coach at 4 - 6 pm. Great opportunity to working the food and cocktails whilst meeting other guests.

I’ve noticed other reviews mention the lack of a minibar. Quite frankly who needs a minibar when you can dial reception and have your drinks sent to you - this isn’t a Holiday Inn. We took some duty free gin and every evening the bar staff made sure there was a bucket of ice for the perfect G&T. That’s the Sandpiper way.

All of this is great, but what really made our holiday was the team led by Russell. The staff at the Sandpiper were second to none. They were happy, friendly and really made our stay memorable. Nothing was too much trouble and always undertaken with a genuine smile.

I hope to see you all very soon at the Sandpiper.

Lovely hotel. Shame about the sun beds
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

This is an excellent hotel on the best coast of Barbados. Really well located, good accommodation, and great food.
For a hotel of this quality it was a real disappointment to see the best sun beds on the beach “reserved” by a book or a tub of sun cream, or a pair of flip flops, from very early in the morning. Rows and rows of sun beds with no one there! Come on management, sort this out.
