We had a really great experience, loved the condo and the beach! We would definitely stay at the Sand Piper again. It was set up so perfectly, and had everything that we needed. Great location and loved all of the shops and restaurants nearby.

Very clean, the staff were all very friendly. If you book here they have coffee pots inroom, but no coffee. Bring your own mug and fill up in the...

The place is nice and fun, but unfortunately it's also a big attraction for college kids. We had to listen to very vulgar music if we wanted to go to the beach. I took my mother for Mothers Day, and the music they were playing was horrible. Cuss words constantly and very sexually explicit content. Not very relaxing.

We stayed here 25 years ago on our honeymoon and things have changed a lot. It is a older hotel but very clean and lots to do here. We are sad to leave, but we will for sure be back again! Tiki bar is nice as well.

My children had stayed here before with family members so we wanted to try it out. There are indoor and outdoor pools and several activities on sight. The first evening we stayed it rained so the indoor activities really made our stay worth while.

We never got back in our car after we arrived at Sandpiper. They are very accommodating and have plenty for the kids to do. Amazing vacation. My daughter's won't let me stay anywhere else. They always want Sandpiper.
