    Our opinion

    The Sandpiper, Barbados is comfortable and relaxing with Bajan charm.

    Hotel description

    The Sandpiper hotel enjoys a pretty location in luxuriant gardens of coconut palm, lawn, hibiscus and bougainvillaea on the edge of a typical Barbadian stretch of sandy beach caressed by the turquoise blue waters of the Caribbean. Built in coral-tinged stone, with white louvred shutters, The Sandpiper has a distinctly West Indian charm. Reached by pathways through the lush gardens, the interiors of The Sandpiper hotel bedrooms are decorated in cool, calm and restful pastel colours. The 48 rooms are very spacious and furnished to a very high standard with excellent attention to detail providing a special charm. The two Tree Top Suites are The Sandpiper’s premier accommodation, featuring private pools and breathtaking views. The one- and two-bedroom suites and three-bedroomed Beach House are ideal for families visiting Barbados. The Sandpiper’s raised central pool area in the gardens, adjacent to the bar and restaurant, oozes charm and ambience. The style of the cuisine here at The Sandpiper hotel is eclectic, with international influences and an emphasis on Caribbean ingredients. If you stay on half board here you can dine out at other west coast luxury hotels on some evenings, an excellent scheme operated by these hotels. The Sandpiper has the relaxed, solid feel of a good quality hotel but is cheerful too. It is a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World. In our opinion The Sandpiper hotel in Barbados appeals to a wide variety of guests, whether you want a relaxing but quality environment, easy access to the beach and water sports, a good restaurant or perhaps accommodation suitable for families.
