Let me just start by saying a huge thank you to the entire team at Sandpiper. I chose this place to propose, over dinner with my now fiancé and the execution was flawless and the service was impeccable. From the planning a few days before to the whole layout of the grounds and intimate ambience which was also very beautiful...

Absolutely loved this hotel. Stayed for 12 days in May. Great location, room, restaurant, gardens but most importantly it's the staff who make the difference at this hotel, truly lovely people (too many to mention individually). Booked 'Sam The Man' as our guide to take us up the west coast to the north point - well it was his son...

Just returned from a ten day stay at The Sandpiper and it exceeded our very high expectations. It is wonderful and has the feel of a private members club about it. This small but perfectly formed hotel is set in very beautiful gardens and everything about it is luxurious and classy. The unbelievably high number of return guests ( in...

The hotel is set in beautiful gardens right beside a lovely beach and literally 5 minutes walk into the small town of Holetown, where there is a variety of restaurants, large supermarket, small shops etc. All the hotel staff were very attentive and friendly and the food was wonderful. We had a garden room on the old side of the...

Loved this hotel, from beginning to end. It’s expensive and so is the restaurant (but then the Caribbean seems to be expensive overall), but absolutely worth every cent. We had room 20, near the beach – comfortable, clean, quiet, well-fitted and well-maintained. Grounds are gorgeous. Service from everyone – literally everyone we came across – was excellent, attentive without ever...

The sandpiper is a family run hotel in a prime location right in the heart of Holetown, very close to the Lime Grove shopping arcades. It has an excellent restaurant with plenty of friendly staff on hand 24/7. There are two pools & its own beach area. Nightly entertainment is very good & the place is kept spotless. This is...

We started with sunset cocktails at Harolds Bar on the beach (a Harolds Smile & a Classic Rum Punch). A lovely view and delightful drinks in a relaxed beachfront area. Went into the other bar, adjacent to the restaurant, and awaited an escort to our table. Cushy rattan chairs, crisp cotton pillows, beach elegant decor. Our order was taken there...
