Set on a sandy cove on the sought after west coast, this family-run hotel has been lovingly cared for by the O’Hara family since they built the property in 1970. Having continually upgraded and invested year after year, it’s no wonder their guests keep on coming back.
The meticulous attention to detail is evident in every corner of the hotel, and the friendly staff ensure everyone who stays here feels relaxed and pampered. This is the sort of hotel where honeymooners and families feel equally valued.
There’s a traditional Caribbean feel to the rooms with white-washed walls, locally sourced rattan furniture and Creole artwork on the walls. While the hotel is set in its own bay, there are a selection of bars, shops and restaurants a short walk away — although the on-site restaurant is one of the most popular on the island.
The Sandpiper is also a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World.
Children are welcome at all times except between 20 January and 28 February. However, the hotel doesn’t allow children under five years to dine in the restaurant after 7pm, instead they offer a dinner service in-room. The Sandpiper will also cater for babies by purifying fresh fruit and vegetables.
The hotel offers a special summer family programme for children aged 2 -12 years and there’s also a playground at their sister hotel, Coral Reef, which is a 2-minute drive away.
