Pool, The Sandpiper

The Sandpiper


The Sandpiper is a family-run hotel that has been lovingly cared for by the O’Hara family since they built the property in 1970. There’s a traditional Caribbean feel to the rooms with white-washed walls, locally sourced rattan furniture and Creole artwork on the walls.

With lush tropical gardens and Caribbean architecture, the hotel offers and intimate and relaxed atmosphere. 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’s 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.

The Sandpiper rooms and suites have a decor that blends colonial timber-cladding and rattan furniture with traditional Bajan fabrics and artwork for an old-school Caribbean feel. All rooms consist of king or twin beds, air-conditioning, and a fridge. Many rooms boast excellent views of the Caribbean Sea or the lush tropical gardens.


Situated on the west coast of Barbados, in palm-fringed tropical gardens in a quiet sandy cove, The Sandpiper offers picturesque beaches, and breathtaking sunsets. The bars, restaurants and shops of Holetown are close by, while the capital, Bridgetown, is only 12 km (8 miles) away and easily reached by local bus or taxi.
