    Short business trip

    Excellent hotel in Holetown directly on the beach and a short walk to all the shops and restaurants. Lovely staff, good food and well furnished large rooms in a traditional Barbados style. I stayed there for a work trip but it is a great base for a holiday. I will return

    Absolutely superb!

    Amazing hotel, as a returning guest, all the staff were as helpful as ever delivering a personal yet professional service. It’s great to have them all back after 6 months of closure! They also arranged my fast track at the airport, transportation and my Covid test which came back in 20 hours meaning quarantine was a short process!

    Beautiful property and incredibly friendly staff. Our stay was just too short and I can see returning for a longer stay

    Verified Expedia guest review

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Th resort was absolutely wonderful - the food was outstanding and the staff was beyond nice and helpful! There are a few things for consideration - the hotel could do a better job giving information and options on activities to do - boat tours, snorkeling, hikes, spa treatments at the sister hotel etc. As someone who doesn't know what the island has to offer, you rely on the staff to help guide you. The other thing, which is sort of out of the hotel's control is the presence of children. Since the property is small and you will either lounge at the pool or beach, if they are in both places, it's hard to escape their noise etc.

    Sandpiper is Great!

    Nice hotel, clean and excellent service. High prices for food at the hotel and a taxi to other locations like Bridgetown. Will cost you about $55 USD roundtrip. The other option is to take the bus with the locals but being first time in Barbados, we werent sure about taking the bus and not knowing where we were going. Overall felt safe during our stay. Nice people! Recommend Sandpiper, in a good location, if you can afford it .
